Small Changes Make a Big Difference

I'm really grieving over the expiration of the Occasions Mini Catalog! Here are two more cards using the Sweet Cake stamp set and the Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper. Notice how these two are made with essentially the same design yet they look so different. Just different background papers and different methods of stamping resulting in a different color scheme.

For the above card, I colored the stamp with Soft Suede, Pool Party and Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Markers to get the variety of colors. Both cards have the stamped image cut out and mounted over ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Did you notice my mistake on this card? I had actually put the whole card together and then realized I had everything upside down, making it necessary to open the card from the top rather than the bottom. But I was able to peel off the focal image because the adhesive on the Stampin' Dimensionals allows me to do so if I don't wait too long. Hence, the upside down hearts in the background. The cherry and heart were cut from a second stamped image using Poppy Parade (retiring in June) Classic Stampin' Pad.
