I think that I've figured out this challenge. Well, at least for this month, I think I have. The main premise is to make two very different cards using either the same stamp or same die. This month, the theme is
Here are my cards
For the first card: I started with the spiral-y blossom from Simon Says STAMP Floral Bookmarking stamp set. I placed a card panel in my MISTI and started stamping the blossom across in a line using Hero Arts Tide Pool ink. I found an easy way (for me) to at least stamp the image in a straight horizontal line. I left the stamp on the "door" of the MISTI and moved the card panel from side to side. After I stamped four images, I flipped the panel upside down and felt that it looked like waves. So, I then reached for the My Favorite Things Seaside Seagulls stamp set. I picked a seagull stamp and placed it between the cresting waves. I added some color with Copic markers. I used a sentiment from the seagull stamp set.
For the second card: I used the spiral-y blossom as a blossom. Again, I left the stamp in place (both for the stem and leaves and the blossom) and moved the card panel horizontally in my MISTI. I used Hero Arts inks - Tide Pool and Field Greens. For the sentiment, I used Paper Smooches Salutations stamp set. The sentiment strip got lost on the card panel, so I matted it with a dark olive green.
