One stamp, two ways.


 How to stretch your stamp dollar, 101.  

I used this little Denami stamp:


2 ways.  First, as pretty florals:

I stamped them onto patterned paper (dear lizzy "neapolitan") and cut them out.  I heat-embossed the sentiment (also Denami) and added some leaves (mft).  The simple touch of curling the flower petals with my fingers added some pretty dimension (and helped them to look like more of a flower and less of a frame.)

Then, second, I used it as a frame (with the adorable little bunnies from their bunnies border stamp inside):

The sentiment is Lawn Fawn, and the patterned paper is by Studio Calico.  The fluff on their tails is hand-glued by me :)



Thanks for peeking!
