One Stamp-Two Stamps





I like this stamp from Stampabilities but it seems to bulky for a smaller card. I used half of it on the outside of the card and the other half on the inside of the card. The star and the manger scene are from a Stamping Up set of six. So from one stamp I was able to make two.

I love this Cardinal Stamp purchased at Hobby Lobby. It's fairly easy to stamp and watercolor. The outside says "Once in a lifetime you meet someone who changes everything" and the inside is stamped "Wise Men Still Seek Him"...with the other half of the stamp above.

I love the Wise Men card - it is stunning. Great idea to "split the stamp".

Fabulous on both. Very elegant.

Great idea to use part of the stamp on the front and part on the inside.

Joan, what a great idea to use your stamp like that for this card. It came out very beautiful. I love the North Star stamp as well, just gorgeous. As always you are such a great source of smiles and inspiration!
Have a great week, Leslie

Very attractive cards Joan, I love to see more than one way of using a stamp, it's so easy to get stuck in a rut :)
