Simple Stamping Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

This is the post that I postponed from Last Sunday, I have now received permission from Mrs D to show my version of her card as post she posted her version of this card yesterday.

Todays card is inspired by Mrs Duck as we were talking about stamping and she came up with the idea of series of frames using these stamps.  Now I started thinking what a beautiful simple project this would make.  I have now seen the card Mrs Duck made using her technique and the same stamps and hers is far more intricate and really shines.  I thought It would be good to show what a simple black and white stamped version would look like.

Therefore by flicking between her blog and mine you can see the simple and complex version of the same card.

  2. Hi John. Love this beautiful card. The black/white combo is great.
    These stamps look good either way as both you and Mrs Duck have proved : )
    I always love to see different ways of using the same stamp, die etc. Take care.

  3. Good morning John your card is gorgeous I just love how you have used the stamps. I'm off to check Mrs Duck' s blog I do like seeing how other people use the same stamps. Have a great day. Hugs Jackie

  6. Eh up John
    It was a case of coordinating when we showed them folks rather than me giving permission (Im honestly not a diva hahaha!)
    Love this monochrome version as you can can tailor the colour palette to suit the occasion but still have a terrific card.
    Nice to know I've inspired someone, especially you matey.

  10. Gorgeous card and one of my favourite colour combos too - my default colour colour combo every time luv it xx GailT xx ps well done Mrs Duck for the inspiration your must feel,rather proud and rightly so xx G xx

  11. Yours, or Mrs Ducks, they both make beautiful cards. I've got the new Chameleon blending pens on the way, and I can envisage a coloured version of this card too, John.

  12. Good morning John,
    Your monochrome card looks so good John and having seen the beautiful elegance of Mrs D's on Friday which has that opulent look about it(namely too dear if i wanted to buy it and for the posh friends). Both cards look so different although both used the same stamps all bar the sentiment. Thank you Jon for your version of what is a beautiful card.

  15. Hi John,
    after seeing Ang's card and yours, I'm amazed at how one stamp can look so different in different colours.
    Fantastic design on both, and I love them both.
    It shows us how one stamp can be used to a great advantage, and I'm all for getting good value out of my crafting items.
    Crafty Regards. Jenny L.
