Try It Out Tuesday #39--One Stamp, 2 Ways!!

Try It Out Tuesday #39

Hiya Friends & Happy Tuesday to ya!! Since it's Tuesday, that means it's a Try It Out Tuesday Challenge #39--this time I challenged the DT to use the new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD "Special Edition Ornamnent" stamps in a way that showcases their versatility--see them all HERE! I decided to use one fabulous stamp, "Surprise", to make 2 totally different cards! The great thing about this stamp is that it is not holiday specific--great for any celebration! My image is colored w/ copics and the fab dp is by My Mind's Eye! I added some stardust stickles to her bows and the present w/ that cute lil' puppy popping out--love it! The cs and ribbons are all from PTI, flowers are Prima & punch outs with my Retro flower punch! And yes, the double bow was made w/ my Bow Easy! :o)

I think she's so beautiful in that fancy dress!! Really love this stamp! Sentiment is from PTI's "Everyday Button Bits" set.

My second card uses the same "Surprise" stamp but this time I made a Christmas card with her! The fabulous gold cs is a heavy mirrored paper that I bought here--it embosses beautifully & is super shiny! The other dp is from my scrap pile, but the cs is PTI's Scarlet Jewel. The Poinsettias & holly are by Prima that I layered together & added a fun gold jingle bell to the center! Sentiment is by PTI's "Signature Christmas"--great grouping of holiday sentiments in this set!

This image was colored w/ Copics as well, the present's bow has gold Spica pen on it & diamond glaze. The tissue paper & her bow have stickles as well! Doesn't she look fab in her holiday finery? Using our stamps in many ways is a great way to save money--lord knows I have a ton of stamps, so this is a good example how to get more mileage out of them!

Now make sure to scroll down to see the DT's fabulous projects for today's challenge!
