Same Layout, Same Stamps, New Challenge

I just love doing this! I think it shows the dersatility of stamps and supplies! I wanted to show how this card would look both masculine and feminine. I loved how this one turned out, so I set off to try another one! The second came much easier and faster...since I already had the layout and stamps I wanted to use...colors were the next challenge! I also wanted to use some supplies that I hadn't gotten out in a while...this punch has been a little neglected and so I thought it would make a nice border for a boyish card. I had to add the ribbon, well because I'm addicted to ribbon (thanks Nikki!) and I had a scrap of it sitting on my desk from a different project...that I decided to toss! Anywho, I also added the same pattern for the hat (it looks so cute with a polka dot!) a little hole punching (Kinda hard to see I think) and we are in buisness!


Stamps: Older and Wiser, peaceful wishes
Ink: soft sky, blue bayou, wild wasabi
paper: soft sky, wild wasabi, blue bayou, watercolor paper
Accessories: spiral punch, 1/16th hand held punch, ribbon, crystal effects, aqua painter

Now for this card I went with more girly colors...I choose the colors because todays Limited Supplies challenge on SCS is to use only scraps to make your card, so this is what I came up with (but to be honest with you the card was already in the works, I just happened to be insink with Jen70! I really really love how this turtle came out in cameo coral with chocolate spots, and since this is a more girly card I wanted to use scallops instead of the spiral punch I still added crystal effect and did the paper piecing on the hat...although hard to tell with such a tiny little hat and pattern...but it's there!
So what do you think? neat idea huh?
Stamps: older and wiser, peaceful wishes
paper:chocolate chip, camoe coral, soft sky, watercolor paper
ink: same as paper plus stazon black and wild wasabi
accessories: 1/16th circle punch, 1/16th corner counder, sponge, aqua painter, ribbon
I think this might be a new challenge for me on Fridays...same stamps, same layout...different colors so I will name it SSMS01 (same same Mabie stampin) Wanna play? just make a card and either upload it to your blog or SCS gallery and send me link...it'll be fun! leave me a comment so I can go check out your work!
Thanks for stopping by!
happy Stampin'
