One Stamp Two Different Ways

Hi everybody!  I keep going back and forth right now between Fall cards and Christmas cards.  I love making both and I want to make both of them as long as I can.

Below is a super cute duo set from Gina K Designs, I think it's called the Christmas Tree Duo.  I made two different kinds of cards with this same set.

This first card is a CAS card.  It was for a World Card Day Challenge at Stamp TV, make a CAS card that looks layered.  You might know this as reverse masking also.

I used a metallic gold ink that would make the tree look lit up.  I used the new Spellbinders die called Resplendent Rectangles.  I cut out the die to show you what it looks like with the next card.  This set is so neat because these dies are interchangeable with one another. I don't mean they're all the same size, they're all different dies and work with each other. If you're looking to buy a new set, consider this one.

I wanted to have some fun with this next card.  Sometimes I like to stray from the traditional Christmas colors using red and turquoise or in this case, pink and green.  I think this card is so cute!

This die has paper piercing around the edge.  Looks like you did it yourself.  You can also frame it with the next size up, which is a pretty ornate one.  That's what I meant by they are interchangeable.

Here's a picture.  I hope you can see what I'm talking about it here.  Not sure if you can.  the package shows examples of how to mix and match them 20+ ways!

It's fun to use the same stamp different ways but I'm sure you're already doing this! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
