Less is More Lucky Dip

If you are like me, then you love stamping more than anything else when making a card!  I certainly love my dies, paper, and embellishments, but if there is little or no stamping on my card, I feel a bit of a fraud!  Well, if you feel like me, then this week at Less is More, is just for you.  Challenge 174 is a lucky dip, and it is to use more than one stamp.
Here are my entries - yes, both of them!

My first was created with a stamp by Acid Drops and Whatnots, which was a free gift in the Australian magazine, Simply Papercraft, and I used the sentiment from the same set.   I teamed this fun image with the wave stamp which is by Stamps of Life, and was part of last month's Stamp of the Month.  For the splashes, I used raindrop dies by Sweet 'n Sassy, a stitched sun die cut by Lil' Inker, and some washi tape for the side panels.


For this more traditional card, I used a lovely flower from the Gina K set, A Year of Flowers, and the sentiment is by Stampin' Up!.  The photo frame is a die by SU and the striped embossing folder is by Cuttlebug.  I coloured the flowers with SU ink, Rich Razzleberry, with sakura pen sparkle in the centres.
