Two birthday cards

I am sharing two cards that are very similar:

Which one do you like better?

Here is a closer look at the left one - one with outlines of the floral images:

Then the right one:

I had the joy to play with specialty stamping paper while making these cards.  I had quite a few packs of those (Thanks to the absent-minded self) but I don't play with them often.  They have been sitting at the bottom of the drawer for the longest time.  I was excited to learn a new stamping technique with the specialty stamping paper from Stretch Your Stamps 2.  Don't you think they look quite different from the traditional floral images?

In early July I made a birthday card using the exact same stamp set with watercolors, then this time I'm using specialty stamping paper.  They result in dramatically different looks and feel!  Just love how versatile these stamps are!

I'm linking the one with the outlines to the following:

  1. Lovely cards. I think I like the one with outlines better, since you asked. Thanks for sharing this with us at Love to Scrap Challenge. Good luck.
