One Stamp--Two Designs

Here are two cards that feature the same darling kitten holding his balloons and floating away.  This image is one of my favorites from Newton's Nook Designs--Newton's Birthday Balloons

My first card is a traditional birthday card using bright colors.  I stamped the balloons portion of the stamp multiple times and fussy cut them out.  I also used the balloon from the Fabulous Frenchies stamp set. I layered the balloons a big bouquet.  I then added some stripes in the colors of the balloons.  I added some stripes and dots with my white gel pen on the balloons for added added. A fun, CAS birthday card.

I changed the theme from birthday to inspirational for my second card.  I stamped the kitty image multiple times around the edges of my white layer.  I then stamped the balloon image from Fabulous Frenchies.  I chose the "You Lift Me Up" from the Uplifting Wishes stamp set which seemed fitting for all the balloons.  I added some Nuvo Drops to the clouds and black enameled dots for texture.  I then stamped the entire image--kitten with balloons. I colored with Spectrum Noir markers, fussy cut, then added Glossy Accents to the colored balloons.  Once everything dried, I adhered everything together. (The fun postage-edging was created using the Framework die set. 




  1. Both cards are absolutely ADORABLE Debbie!! I love the kitty image you used and especially the balloon shaped like a kitty!! Loving all the bright colors on both cards too! Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Twofer Challenge!! :0)

  2. How cute is that kitty holding her giftee and her balloons! I love how you have showcased her on both your designs, Debbie! Your color band panel really pops behind her and her huge bouquet on your purr-thday card and I love how you made your own DSP by stamping a b/w background with her on your second card! Of course, you know I love all the schparkle and shine from the glossified balloons and I think the postage stamp edge was a great choice! Thank you so much for playing in TCC #35! Keep well and safe! Hugs, Darnell
