One Stamp, 6 different ways. Pt2

Hi Everyone.. Here is project two of my self set challenge of using one stamp in several different ways..I think you'll agree that today's offering couldn't be much further away from my last post even though I have used exactly the same stamp!! By the way, for those that have asked, the Stamp is from Stampavie and is called Snow Cuddles (PEN29). The starting point, as with all of the projects under these titles is exactly the same. Stamp with Memento Ink, Colour with Copics and galze with Glossy Accents.. Hey!, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!Once the image was dry I cut it out and embossed it through the Cuttlebug using the second largest die from the Wonky Rectangles (S4-306) Spellbinders set.. I also cut and embossed the largest die from this set onto some Light Blue Mirror card.
These two shapes were then matt and layered together...Next, I embossed a piece of White card stock twice, using the Marianne Designables Swirls (DS0907).The White card was matt and layered onto a complementary piece of Teal card stockand then the stamped image was mounted on top.Now, for a little bit of inky fun!! I took some White Prima flowers (#546267 )and gave them a good spritz of Teal Cosmic Shimmer Mist..Look at the colour difference, and matches perfectly for this project.. Oh the possibilities with all the other Cosmic Shimmer colours!!Anyway, there we go, #2 of six... Back soon with part 3!!
Thanks for checking us out, see you soon.


  1. And again, we're off on a roll here I see! Just love those embossing folders, they always inspire when nothing else works. So effective with a simple stamp. Thanks again for sharing, Andy. Excellent uncomplicated, just what we need for our Christmas cards.

    Another beautiful card Andy and super colours. I've loved both '1' & '2' so can't wait to see the remaining four.

  4. Oh this is beautiful thanks for the ideas!

  5. Oh my goodness you would never think it was the same image used. Thanks for the name of it. I really like the look of the Marianne Designables I hadn't thought too much of these before but you have changed my mind.
