One Stamp Two Ways

Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to get the awesome stamp set Paper Garden, which is the Stamp of the Month in September.  You can buy the stamp at its regular price of $17.95 or make qualifying purchase of $50 and get this stamp for $5!

I totally forgot that I've never shared anything made with it and to compensate for that, I'm sharing two cards that used the same stamps but look totally different.  First up is this monochromatic one:

I inked up the flower and the sentiment in Goldrush, layered it on Kraft then Chocolate cardstock on a cardbase.

Then I wanted to make it super colorful:

I used the new and fun watercolor paints to create the background, then inked up the flower and sentiment in black.  Black silhouette image on colorful background is one of my favorites!  In case you are wondering, the sentiment comes from the stamp set called Finding the Words, which is a great set where you can make different combination of words to create your own sentiment!

Today also marks the last day to get the Exclusive Hello, Life! stamp sets.  You can buy any of the stamp sets for $13.95 or if you buy all three, it is only $34,95!  That's more than 15% discount!

I'm entering the colorful card to the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown - Clean and Simple
Addicted to Stamps and More - Clean and Simple
Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your flower silhouette on the colorful watercolored background is stunning, Joyce. Thanks for sharing it with us at ATSM this week.

  2. Thanks so much for sharing your great card with us at Tuesday Throwdown for our CAS Challenge this week. Love the bright watercolors behind the flowers. And your monochrome card is lovely. Good luck. Debi TT DT

  3. Your colourful card jumped out at me from the Gallery at Addicted to Stamps. I love the black stamping with the rainbow water colour background, its such a clever idea and very effective. I'm so very happy you shared this with us at ATSM this week!

  4. I love both cards but the watercolor paints are so pretty. Makes the image pop. Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown.
