One Stamp - Multiple Cards

Mema's Online Store-Click Here

Well, we're almost half-way into the new year and I have so far kept my new resolutions to:

1. Incorporate a little exercise
 in my daily routine
2. Eat healthy; eat from all food 
groups in the right portions
3. Purge and donate items that I 
have not used or no longer 
need to others; to pay it forward

I'm quite pleased with myself for committing to the first two goals but the last goal is the one that seems to give me more joy. It feels good to give to others and to know that because of me someone will be a bit warmer this winter or someone will get that job because they had a suit to wear to the interview. 

Yep goal number 3 gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling. To give freely and from the heart is just so uplifting for me.

I have a set of cards I would like to share. I borrowed a stamp and die set from a friend and while I had the stamp and die I cut out several pieces and stamped a few extra so I could return her items in a timely manner.  I finally used up all the pieces and turned them into creations, of hope, sympathy and heartfelt thoughts.

Tell me what you think and tell me where you like to purchase your digital images (hint hint)

Colored with copics and used a Spellbinders die to create the background.

I cut the die twice; once by itself and then again to include the stamp. This allowed me to create a hint of a shadow.

Added a ribbon and decorated the inside to finish this card.  
Just a "I thought of you" kind of card.

Again I used the same stamp and die cut twice. I wanted the flourishes to have a different color for focus and to add dimension to the cross itself.

The background was used using a Marianne Die that cut and embossed.  I added the greeting "I am blessed" because it was exactly how I was feeling during its creation.

To create this card I used a musical background stamp by Hero Arts and then stamped over it with the cross.  This is a Stampin Up cross set but it is retired and since it didn't belong to me I forgot to write down the names of these things (sorry).

I then embossed the stamped image. Using a second stamped image I cut around the flourishes leaving me with just the cross image which I popped on top of the stamped image.

The greeting "I Am Blessed" just seemed so appropriate at the time. The inside was designed to resemble the front of the card with a space for a personal message.

Does this look familiar? Yep I followed the same steps as I did in the card above and just made a few changes such as the color, and the piercing around the border.

On the mat I stamped and embossed a design for added texture.  A few pearls were added as well to add a softness to the card's purpose. This card was designed to be a sympathy card and the greeting reads "May God Comfort You".

The inside is a simple and clean design with a space for a personal message.

Okay my crafting family...this is what I have been up too.  Don't forget to leave me a comment with your thoughts and tell me where you shop for your digital images. 

(10+ comments and we have a winner)

Thanks for stopping by and next time bring a friend along.  I'd love to have them.

So until next time

What fabulous cards Lesia - the cross, no matter what style, is always a great focal point in any card, but especially for sympathy cards - to my way of thinking :-).
One of my favourite places to buy digital stamps is Beccy's Place (in Australia).
