One Stamp - Two Ways







I found this little dollar stamp when I was at the crop in Orlando. Here it is, used two ways. The black and white version has a swiss dots background, and one of the pretty border cuttlebug folders, I added rhinestones to the centre of the flowers. The tree was simply stamped in black, and white liquid pearls added, then a doodled border to finish the panel. The dramatic black and white corner is from a pack by Making Memories. I can never get really good photographs of cuttlebug embossing, it falls into the same category as photgraphing glitter - almost impossible, at least with my skills.

I thought the same stamp could be used for Christmas, stamped in green and with dots of red liquid pearls as an accent. The simply gorgeous papers are from a pack by SEI.

Top notch once again, Enfys! Love both, but especially the black & white. (You might have noticed, I have a thing for b&w, when I let it go unchecked.)

hugs,
