Same But Different


I made card #2 for today's challenge on SCS then had enough scraps left on my table to make a second card. Both are made using a Daisy D 8x8 paper pad from Eclectic Paperie I love the pretty, country colors in this line.... plus they are all so nicely distressed - just my style!
-
The first card was made with stamps from My Favorite Things - it's a brand, spankin' new set from Kim called "You take the cake" - it's just great!!
-
The second card was made with a Bella image I stamped from my friend Arin's stash. Can you believe I don't have a single Bella in my stamping arsenal? I also the dotted line at the bottom from the new Papertrey set, as well as the sentiment along the side. I grabbed some gold wire and made it into a swirl and it was just the right added element for this card.
-
Which one do you like?

OOOOOh! Im first. Love both as usual but I like the first card more. Im not a big bella fan (dont really know why) I love the look of the paper too. The flower on card one gives it a nice touch. Great job!

Both are wonderful, but #2 is my favorite. That paper is pretty, I love how you mixed and matched it. All the embellishments are perfect.

Oh my, they use the same papers. How does one choose? Maybe..... number one. Is it the lighter bg? Hmmmm.

Bettina said...

OK - you've done it - I can't choose. They are both so gorgeous that there is nothing that sets one apart from the other as a favorite. Both are going into my sketchbook for inspiration challenges!

Hands down, special delivery! For some reason, it has a really nice, different "flow" about it. Very cute!
thanks for sharing,

Seeing as I have 2 women I know who are expecting and I have NO pregnancy-related stamps, I like #2 best! I've seen a few cute pregnancy themed cards lately, and yours is just like those--cute cute cute! Can't wait to see the ad inspiration card gallery when you post it!

Ooh they are both beautiful - love the colors and the paper but I have to say I'm partial to the bella card!! Just love the bellas!! Great job!

Chris Hauck said...

While I do love the Bella's, I think this time I like #1 best. I think it's because I gravitate to the brighter colors. I love the red organdy ribbon and the bright yellow flower. I do like the Daisy D's pp. I love everything about it. Thanks for more inspiration.

Michelle,
I love both of them but I think I like the Bella one a little better. I'm also part of the club that doesn't own any Bellas yet :-)

April Hall said...

I LOVE this paper and LOVE your cards! i think my favorite is #2, i just love how you made your own metal embellishment. Totally cool!

Leslie Miller said...

I love them both! For some reason I like the Bella card best. Not necessarily because of the Bella -- there's just something about it...the colors or layout, not sure. I love everything you do!

doverdi said...

I have to admit that I am another one who likes card #2 the best.

Terri E. said...

It's a good life!

Both cards have the same textures and feel - but I like the 2nd one better. Those Bellas are so cute -- haven't succumbed to those ..yet... ;) I like your handmade spiral clip! What a nice touch..

Beth said...

These cards are sooooooo awesome!! #1 is my favourite because of the big flower. Love the paper selection. These cards rock!

Cathy W. said...

I love both but I'll go with #1 because I have to pick. Beautiful papers (yea, I think I have them) and once again your detail is astonishing.

mnhyrkas said...

I just cant resist picking the bella girl. I dont have any in my stash either.

mnhyrkas said...

I like the spiral clipy thing- is that a recycled twistie? That puts the icing on the cake!

Julie Campbell said...

I think they are both really cute... but I'm going to have to go with the Bella card. I love those stamps!!! The sentiment is perfect fot the card. I love the colors and the layout. Great job!

Kim said...

oooh! Gorgeous! Both are delicious!

Vicki said...
