One Stamp, Two Ways

Today at the Penny Black blog, they are featuring 2 of my cards created for different occasions using the same stamp.  We are trying to show how versatile these newly released stamps can be.

My first is a thank-you card using the new Sweet Buds stamp.  I stamped the image with black Memento ink then stamped again, punched out a circle and coloured with Copics.  I pop dotted that circle over top of the flower to create a spotlight card.  The sentiment is called Thanks.




 Here is my second card done in a Lovey Dovey style for Valentine's Day.  Using the same Sweet Buds stamp, I stamps the flowers around the edges so I could add a frame cut using a Spellbinders die.  The sentiment is called Love Your Love.  The flowers are coloured using Copics. 
I am adding this one to the CASology Challenge; BLUE and to the challenge at Moxie Fab; make a card with a window.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ copic markers/ pop dots/ Spellbinders/ pearls/ pop dots
