1 Stamp 3 Ways

I was excited to learn about Two Peas In A Bucket's BIG announcement. There are two new craft category that were added to the website. To kick off the event, they are celebrating "30 Days of Stamping & Card making" in the Classes stamping and Events section. New content, challenges, prizes and special guests are just a part of the event. So I jumped on the bandwagon and joined the first challenge (see 1 Stamp 3 Ways). So I chose my one stamp from this set Hero Arts Trees of The Seasons. As it is finally Spring, I want to celebrate the season...
First card is a monochromatic one. I always envision this tree image in green. So it seems to be appropriate to create this monochromatic card in green. I'm entering it for the Scrap rendez-vous (color challenge). Do check out the DT's Monochromatic take on the colors as it is a feast for the eyes! This green card  is a A6 size (4.5 in.x 6.25 in ) and is slightly larger than the conventional A2 . I decided that it needs to be in bigger size in order to fit all three panels into the design.
Happy Birthday to You
Next are the two one layer cards that was based on this sketch at One Layer Wednesday # 47 ( Sketch-on-mania).
I couldn't stop at just making one...
One Layer Wed.
For the 3rd card, I combined distress ink (Spice Marmalade) and green marker (for the rim)for the image. I also used the Friends Definition for part of the background. Ribbons are from Hero Arts.
Sendind happy thoughts
All sentiments are from SRM Stickers. It's really fun to use the same stamp for different cards. I have more to share later this month on this theme! 

 Just sharing what I purchased over the weekend....
Which one is your kind of flavor? I can't decide....so I bought 7!
Edited note: There was a sale ($2.99 US/Can a tub)! Yup, I'm a sucker for deals!

Wonderful cards Virginia! Love that you are jumping on the wagon and starting the challenges over at 2Peas. Must be nice to be able to buy 7 of these Tubs of Ice Cream! I normally don't even buy one only when on sale! Lol! I have to say that they are super yummy and bad for the waist line! Lol. Great take on 1 Stamp 3 Ways and yes, Spring is coming!
