Two Different Cards . . . Same Lay-Out

First, a thank-you to everyone who sent prayers and thoughts for Dave's mother. The main health crisis is now stable. I apologize for the lack of posts and intend to get back into the swing of things.

People often ask me where I get my design ideas.  One secret is to come up with a good design and just keep re-using it.  Stampin'Up! makes it so easy to do this because so often the stamps in a set are the same size and therefore interchangeable in a design - like the 2 cards below.
These are cards we made at the October Stamp-a-Stack. I used a cute little set called a Flower for All Seasons. Its one that the participants in my spring Technique Class recieved. BTW: if you are on my email list then watch for a notice in November for the next Technique Class which will be starting in January. You can sign up for the email list here.

Originally I intended the Stamp-a-Stack card to be the sunflower card. But I wanted people to see how easy it is to use the same lay-out for multiple different cards so I made a Christmas card too. I made both cards with the same colors and gave the attendees the choice of which card to make.

Stamp Sets
A Flower for All Seasons
Heard From the Heart
Wild Wasabi
Riding Hood Red
Naturals White Paper
Gold Cord
Linen Thread
Eyelet Border Punch
Ticket Corner Punch
Stamp-a-Ma-Jig (to align the sentiment)

Let me know if there is any way I can help you with your stamping.
Please contact me with any suggestions or questions. Your feedback is appreciated.
Be sure to check my class calendar for future events.
