One Style - Two Designs

Busy couple of days around here, and not too much time for stamping! 

On Tuesday night I hosted our long running SU 10 for 10 group, and we did a great card designed by my upline.  It has a really great youthful, masculine, grungy sort of look.  I just loved it's style so much I recreated the style with a different feel. 

Here's the card we did with Susan my SU demo...

Isn't it cool?  What I really love about it are the side triangles popped up, yet still part of the base card design.  And don't you love the dragging technique on the skater?  It was fun to do.


So I took this style and gave it a completely different look with a brand new released set from Our Daily Bread Designs.  These March sets are just STUNNING, and mine just arrived.  This one is called The Lord has Risen.

I stamped the side trianges in Memento Tuxedo Black ink with the violet stamp so I could color it in, and then added the verse in Melon Mambo ink.  I sponged the triangles heavily with Always Apricot and lightly with Melon Mambo.  I wanted it to look like a real flower garden.  On the apricot panel I stamped the violets in Apricot and added some sponging and separated the verse into two sections.


I also tooked some cream looped ribbon and colored with both the apricot shade and the deep pink shade to tie it all in.  I also jazzed up the triangles by adding the pinked hearts punch and I like how it sets them off. 

So - two designs with the same style of card!

I'll be back Friday with something new again!

Wow they are both gorgeous! It always surprises me how different two cards can look, even if you use the same sketch or layout. Love both of them.

These are wonderful, Christine! I love both but would never have recognized them as the same sketch. Great job!

Hey Christine...just blog hopping tonight and did a double take when I saw our club card here. How fun! and I love how you did another take on the same design that was soooooo opposite in style. Very cool. Thanks for sharing!
