Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 58 - Use it 3 times

The challenge this week is hosted by Tracy  and is "Use it 3 times"

Use the same stamp/image three different ways. It could be the background, main image and a tag to match for example. (ie Christmas Wrapping Paper, Greeting Card and Gift Tag) Using different colourways is another way.

We're sponsored again by the lovely Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher for her online shop which is crammed full of goodies with new stock arriving all the time! Thanks once again Joanna!

 For this challenge, I used a freebie rubber stamp of a small angel that I got with a magazine.   I stamped it three times, masking the centre angel and then coloured them with promarkers.  I then cut it out using a nestie and distressed the edges with chipped sapphire distress ink.

I also stamped the greeting with another stamp from the same set.

The nestie shape was mounted onto blue card, and  this was then added to plain white cardstock, that had been distressed on the edges with the chipped sapphire stamp pad.  The final touch was to add the white organiza ribbon.

I used the same stamp to decorate the envelope, and I used an offcut of the blue card with a stamped angel decoupaged onto it as a book mark.


  1. What a great free stamp. And I love the card, bookmark and envelope you've made with it. xx

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! You've double-tripled too - three angels on the card and three different uses too!

  3. Simply lovely, J. That image is sooooooo cute and you have tied the whole thing together beautifully :-)
