Two "Same-Stamp" Cards

I’m sharing two cards today with you, using the same main stamp on both cards. The flower and the leaves are from Gina K’s Year of Flowers, and I stamped them when my friend was here in June.

For this first one, I made it a sunflower. Not sure it can be, but what the heck! I colored the flower and the leaves with Stampin’ Up! markers and cut them out. For the flower I used Barely Banana and So Saffron, and for the leaves I used Mellow Moss and Sage Shadow. The center of the flower is Flower Soft. I drew the stem with a black Sharpie, then went over it with the Mellow Moss and Sage Shadow markers. I popped the flower and leaves up on Pop Dots. The sentiment is from Scrappy Cat and the card base is PaperTrey Ink’s kraft.
For the second one, I did no coloring on the flower – just used Flower Soft in the center. I used the same color markers for these leaves as the first one – Mellow Moss and Sage Shadow and drew the stem. The sentiment is again from Scrappy Cat. I embossed the background with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, mounted the whole thing on black, used my Stampin’ Up! punch for the photo corners and mounted the flower, leaves and sentiment on Pop Dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
