5 Cards using 1 Stamp Set!

I have been happily working with one of my new favourite stamp sets from the new catalogue - "A Tree". Such a simple stamp, yet so many possibilities. I think I may very well offer these cards in the form of a workshop in the very near future but for right now, they are just here for your enjoyment. 
My inspiration came totally from the card that Karen Day posted a few weeks ago on her blog. I simply changed the colours slightly. That is the last card shown. 
The other cards are based on designs that I have printed out from past posts and magazines and I honestly couldn't tell you where I found them. I enlarged them and now the names of the original designers are gone... So my apologies if you recognize these patterns as yours (please send me an email and let me know!)
