1 Stamp - 2 Cards

Hello Everyone,
Happy Monday - if there is such a thing...

I am trying to stay positive because it's a short week here in Canada,
 with Friday being Canada's birthday.

Speaking of birthdays - today is my hubby's birthday!!
I think we are going out for dinner tonight? He hasn't decided yet??!!

But enough about that,
today I am going to show you 2 cards that I made using one stamp. This stamp is one from Kraftin' Kimmie. Both of the images and the sentiments all are from the same stamp.

Card #1

I colored miss Goldilocks with copics and used MME paper.
I also used the sketch from Sketchbook Saturday

and was inspired by the Moxie Fab challenge - beautiful borders.
The 3 rolled flowers are actually the decorative edges of a piece of MME 12 x 12 patterned paper. I just rolled them up - inked the top edge and adhered them to the card base with big glue dots.

Here you can see a bit more of the dimension :

(I thought that was pretty clever & creative??!!)

Card #2

I used the Annabelle sketch for this one.

I was originally going to put Goldilocks on this card but I thought the paper was so pretty on it's own, I thought I would leave it. And then I found the felt ribbon that matched and knew that this card would stand out enough on it's own.

Okay, well I should run so I can be ready for when the birthday boy arrives home.
Have a good night.
Big Hugs
