Today I have three cards to share using the Gorjuss stamp set Toadstools. I have had so many ideas buzzing through my head for this set but I’ve decided to limit it (for now!) to three cards. For this series, I have essentially used the same card design but I’ve switched up the colour schemes for each. I think this card set illustrates that simply by changing the colour palette you use, without even changing the design too much, you can end up with a completely different feel. Imagine how many different card looks you can get when you switch up the design as well?! I totally love how versatile stamps are!
For my first card, I had been playing around with the blues and greys on her outfit which prompted me to put her in a winter scene.
Here’s the card…
I decided then to add a bit more colour and a dark night sky was born along with rich green rolling hills. Love the colours of the background.
Here’s the card…
For the final card, I realised I had yet to use the little critter and the toadstools from the set. Of course that had to be remedied immediately. The toadstools are super cute. I had been tempted to go with a darker colour palette but eventually decided on more of a spring time theme.
Here’s the card…
So, there you have it – one stamp set, one basic card design and three different cards. They were so fun to make and I hope you enjoy viewing the cards today.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
What a fantastic reminder, Kylie! A simple palette change, and you’ve got a whole new card. I love that you used the same supplies, yet came away with very different cards.
I can’t decide which is my favorite! I do love that first one with the winter-y white tones. I never would have thought to use that stamp as a Christmas stamp, but seeing it in white definitely gives me some great ideas.
Score! You’ve hit a bases-loaded triple with this trio, and drove in three runs!! They are definitely gorgeous!! I sit in awe of your coloring. Okay….start saving your money, you’re coming here for a holiday just to teach me how to color! Can’t decide which one I like most…they’re all pretty darn amazing!! LOVE the first one; even the shading on the birch trees is stunning, and you made shadows on the snow. Dang girl! The middle girl is wearing a denim coat too. How in the world did you do that??!!!! And those toadstools are oh so sweet! I love them all. I’m pretty sure we need to FT again soon. Let me know what works for you! xoxo
Oh, you are the sweetest, thank you, friend! 🙂 Would love to come visit and swap tips and hints with you. 🙂 Would love to FT again. A Friday or Saturday night my time would possibly be the best due to the time zone differences, I think. What do you think? xx
Amazing in triplicate, Kylie! I often ‘forget’ that a change of colour is all that’s required to create a ‘new’ card…wouldn’t that save me on taking stuff out, putting stuff away…repeat… The blues and greys of the first are perfect for a winter scene (and, by the way,it’s snowing here! I am not ready for winter!); the rich browns, greens and navy wonderful for a night scene; and the spring theme…oh my! That little hedgehog, peeking from the trees, is simply wayyyyyy too cute! Once again, you’ve dazzled me with your creativity!
hugs and love,
