Hi there...a while back I made 2 cards but using the same stamp & layout.  A bit lazy really but I don't seem to be in the mood for card making these days at all.....I blame my journal book hahaha!!!

I used a stamp which has the whole alphabet on it and highlighted the appropriate letter for the recipient. The 1st one was for my lovely friend Tracey, whose fave colour is orange.  The background is distress inks (the flower stamp was a freebie in CS). 

This one has a paper background from Prima.  Both have ye olde doilies & ribbons to finish.  Seeemples hahaha

Thank you for taking a peep today!  HUGS XXX

This reminds me of the Somerset Magazine feature in which one stamp is used for many purposes. You did an excellent job of making two very different cards using the same stamp. Way to go!
