CAS Classes #2-Day 5

I'm back with another post sharing day 5 inspiration. The class today is all about stretching your stamps, one stamp, 3 ways!
This first card is inspired by Kristina Werner's gorgeous class sample.........

Card 2: Is another Julie Ebersole inspired creation, lovely and simple, but very effective and super quick to make. Although I'm thinking l should have gone with a brighter yellow than More Mustard.

Card 3: Last but not least, this card inspiration comes from Donna Mikasa and uses a couple of the techniques acquired in the "Creative Chemistry" class l participated in last year.

I really enjoyed these cards and the idea of using my Pleasant Poppies stamp from SU in very different ways makes me happy. As this is another stamp that has not had much love. It really makes you look at your stamp stash in a whole new light!
The first 2 cards were coloured using Stampin-Up markers direct to cards and the colour was added to the last one using sponges and ink pads, l love the Polaroid effect of the layout on this one.
I know l said l would be all caught up with this post, but the lovely girls at Online Classes have thrown in a bonus day...yay! So l will be back to share again a bit later.
                               "Thanks for stopping by"
All Supplies used are Stampin-Up.
