BLOGGERS CHALLENGE #72 - The Same but Different

Good morning! This week's Bloggers Challenge is the theme - the SAME BUT DIFFERENT. We could go about it a few different ways - using the same colors, sketch, stamp or whatever we chose. I decided to just use the same stamp AND sketch but change the colors, designer papers and the embellishments. Also - one card NO COLORING and one with coloring!

My first card - I used my new Winter At Home design that is available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! To keep it simple, I stamped it in Brilliant Blue Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock. I used the Jumbo Snowflakes Wheel by SU on Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue and Bashful Blue. I embellished it with the Soft Subtle buttons by SU too,








This card, I had some scraps leftover from my scrapbooking TLC kits from last year, so I grabbed the black DP - colored the same scene. In my mind - I saw sparkles in the window with the SNOW, so I used Stickles - but now it looks a little "cloudy" so I am not completely pleased right now with the window... we will see what it looks like when it is dry...

I colored this image with my Copics and used DP for the curtains and the wall. Some more accessories: Blush Blossom cs, Snowflake felt, Snowflake Brads, Scallop Edge Punch

Ok - my children are all talking to me at once, so I need to go (CALGON TAKE ME AWAY! LOL) Be sure to check out the other Blogger Challenge Ladie's projects. I am ALWAYS in awe of their ideas and work!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a blessed day!

These are both gorgeous! Such a great idea! :)

Lorie said...

Oh, wow! They are both completely lovely! I may have to try this idea.

Lynn Mercurio said...

Amazing how the same image can look so different with just altering the color scheme. Both are awesome cards. It's hard to choose which one I like better, although the pink one makes me feel warmer. :)

Wow very interesting to see how different your cards looked by changing the colors. I am partial to the color blue and I like the simplicity of not coloring on your first card. The second card is quite pretty with it's soft colors.

Connie Paxman said...

wow, now those are very unique stamps. I love your pink and black, very cool tones.

Both cards are great! Glad I don't have to choose between them as they are so different! BTW, I like the way your window scene turned out, looks like it is snowing outside at twilight, very effective.

Wow Chris, I didn't think these could look so different ... I am in love with the monochromatic card, beautiful.

StampingSelene said...

Wow! I like them both for different reasons. I love the color on the pink and pumpkin one. the watercolor looks so sharp and lifelike. The monochromatic one makes it feel like a winter day.. Two totally different feelings from the same stamp and layout. Awesome job.

Joan Ervin said...

Both cards are absolutely gorgeous, Chrissy....I just love your new stamp and it's sooo amazing how you can get such different yet beautiful looks with the same stamp!!! Awesome work, my friend!!!
