Same Stamp, Different Looks

Hi, TJ Fans! Toodle Noodle Ro, here, to share a couple of cards using the same stamp, but with very different looks.

REMEMBER:  ALL NEW RELEASES ARE ON SALE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 8TH -- SAVE 15%!!!! Details at the end of the post.

I really like a stamp that can convey different feelings just by changing the way you use it. I feel like I really get my money's worth when I have that versatility. Today I am using Wolf By Moonlight (S801) on both cards, but they very different from each other. Take a look...

They are as different as night and day (literally).

For the "night" card, I did some heat embossing on black cardstock. I used Versamark ink and silver embossing powder. I die cut a frame from kraft cardstock and trimmed the image to fit in the frame. Using vellum, I cut multiple pieces using coordinating dies and attached all elements to a gray card base. I added some silver Wink of Stella to the moon and the vellum pieces, and added some black Nuvo Crystal Drops for a little added detail. As a final burst of shimmer, I added a good spritz of Iridescent Shimmering Bliss Topper. I decided to not use a sentiment on this card because I really didn't want to take away from the image.

It is so difficult to capture the true shimmer of the Shimmering Bliss. But here is a close-up which gives a little better detail of how beautiful the sprays really are.

For the "day" card, I also stamped the image using Versamark (on gray cardstock this time), but instead of embossing, I used chalk to color in the image. I simply used cotton puffs and dabbed the color onto the different areas of the image. I trimmed the image using a die and sprayed it with Iridescent Shimmering Bliss Topper.  Using a die, I cut a black mat for the stamped image. I also matted a panel of decorative paper, then attached everything to a gray card base. As a finishing touch, I added a cute little shrink plastic tag I made eons ago. I really like how it all looks kind of ethereal.

And here is a close-up of the shimmer on that card.

I really like this wolf stamp. I am surprised at how many different looks you can achieve with it, depending on the techniques and supplies used. If you like the TJ products I have used, remember they are on special (15% off) only until the 8th of this month! And for everything else, you can save 10% by using the code below (which never expires!).
