Just Christmas and Birthday Cards ~ Sketch 13

We're excited to start creating again at Just Christmas and Birthday Cards. This weeks sketch was created by Linda. I really enjoyed the layering in her sketch. I've decided as part of my creating this year I want to use more of what I have and not think I need something new every week! Easier said then done, right! Well, this challenge brought me to one stamped image, a new Magnolia which I adore. By clipping the holly from her hair and coving it with a little knot of red thread, I used the same stamp, with papers from the same line / stack, to creat both my Christmas and Birthday card. This is not only user friendly to my resolution, but it also made creating both cards a lot simpler for me. Not quicker but simpler :)
Be sure to check out the other design team cards. Everyone did a great job this week as always! Try the sketch out for a chance to win a really fun stamp 'the faith lady looks shy', kindly donated by The Crafty Pad.

Magnolia stamp "Tilda With Christmas Presents" found at Stempel-Phantasien
Paper is from Me and My Big Ideas stack and transparent vellum
Circular stamps are Scrappy Cat for birthday and Limited Edition / Danelle Johnson for christmas.
Happy Holidays is from Making Memories, Fa La La set.
Circular stamps are inserted into a tag, using the Tag Maker from Making Memories.

Beautifull cards Rheannon.

love how you can change a x-mas stamp into a b-day stamp with just a very small adjustment.

I love how you used the christmas stamp for your birthday card by just cutting off the leaves. That´s a great idea - and I think I will scraplift it... ;o)
Also your idea of using the same paper is great - but the cards don´t look the same tough because of you choosing other papers for matting and embellishments.

Both cards are adorable!

Gorgeous cards both of them!

Brilliant idea to transform the stamp. :) I can't believe the two cards were made with the same elements - they look so different and unique. Very clever of you. :)
