One Stamp, Two Styles!

Hello friends!
Those of you who visit me often know that I enjoy making both clean and simple cards and more embellished cards, often with a touch of vintage. I thought it would be fun to use one stamp for creating two different cards and see what I come up with! Let's see if this becomes a regular feature here in my blog -I sure had fun creating these so it might be that you'll see more of these "card pairs" in the future too. :)

My CAS version is a one layer with a sponged moon and stamped image and sentiment. Small pearls embellish the horns of the reindeers - they are on a festive mood. :)

I'd like to enter this card to 
 Addicted to CAS One Layer
Aud Sentiments Challenge blog Christmas Sentiments, my 2nd entry
Moving Along With Times No designer paper
Simon Says Wed Anything Goes

In my second card I heat embossed the image and sentiment directly to patterned paper and used the same paper as my background too. I embellished the card with a doily, snowflake-flowers and ribbon.
This card is for: Vintage Christmas with monochrome twist Anything Goes

The question is, which card do you like better? Have a nice weekend! :)

p.s. Have you entered my Christmas Card Challenges?
The first one for stamped Christmas cards is here and the second for Christmas cards out of scraps/old stash is here. There's prizes from STAMPplorations!

  2. Beautiful clean card, but I love both cards!

  3. What a fab idea to use the stamp and make two different styles! I really like the black card… the white silhouette gives a great effect against the dark colour.
    Your CAS card is perfect for my 'no papers' theme. I love the image against the moon - gorgeous colours and fab layout! :-)
    Thanks for joining us at Moving Along With the Times this week!

  4. Clever you and wow what a difference ! Two beauties Nonni you would never know they were made by the same person. Both are just fabulous as always. Thanks for your continue support at ATCAS


  5. It's fun to see this stamp used both ways. They're both wonderful but I'm partial to the CAS one. Hugs!

  6. Both are beautiful but I do love the CAS card more, probably because I can't do that myself - although I may try now - thank you for the inspiration Nonni xx

  7. Beautiful !!!!!

  19. Both of these cards were amazing and I really loved how you showed a "simple" version and an "embellished" version using the same image. It was inspiring to see the possibilities! The colors were so different and yet each card was absolutely unique and beautiful in its own way. I'm so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!

  20. Love it so much! The CAS card is perfect!

  21. A gorgeous Christmas card!! Thank you for sharing it with us at Inky Impressions this week
