Good Morning blogger friends, and WELCOME to the Ronald McDonald House Charity Blog Hop sponsered by Great Impressions Stamps!  You should have arrived here from Elizabeth's blog!  If not, you will want to start at the Great Impressions blog, or continue on with the next blog at the end of this post.  You will definetely want to check out all the blogs, and their wonderful creations being donated to the RMH!   Also, stamping PRIZES are secretly hiding in several of the blogs, so please be sure to leave each blog participant a happy comment!  Winners will be announced on the Great Impressions Blog on Tuesday, October 2nd.
I created 3 different cards for this hop, all using the same stamp.  It is a sillouette stamp H184, that I have used many, many times since I got it, in many different ways.....hopefully my cards show how one stamp can do many things!  Here is my first card:

I tend to do CAS cards mostly, and this is a perfect example, of how a CAS card can still be elegant and fun.  I simply colored the stamp with Tim Holtz Distress Markers, spritzed the stamp with water lightly and stamped it for a watercolor look.  I wanted to continue with the soft feel, so finished it off with a punched edge to each side, and pearls.....quick! 
This is the next card using the same sillouette stamp:
This card uses the double embossing technique.  I stamped and embossed the image and sentiment in black, sponged over it with multiple Tim Holtz Distress Inks, then ran it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder.  It may be hard to see IRL, but the texture is so cool! The Thank You is also a stamp by Great Impressions that is a border stamp with multiple Thank-you sentiments...I just inked up one of them...the stamp is F308.....I also used it for the sentiment on the next cards as well. Here is the last card :

Again, CAS.....simply masked the oval and sponged inside it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, then stamped the sillouette stamp and sentiment.  Before layering the image, I pierced around the oval to finish it off a bit.  Again, it is hard to see in the photo.

I hope you enjoyed my quick creations using my favorite GI stamp.  PLEASE hop on to Sue C.  I know you will love what she has to share!  Don't forget to leave some love on each blog!

Thanks for hopping by today to support the Ronald McDonaldHouse. The hop will be going on until Sunday night, so if you do not have time to see everyone's creations at one time, you have all weekend to participate!   Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!!

God Bless......Tammie
