One Stamp, Two Cards!

Hello! How is your new year so far? I am sharing two cards today with the same stamp set (Fresh Bloom) from Neat and Tangled. As you can tell, I had fun coloring the flower with copics.
happy day (Fresh Bloom & Tangles)
Here is the other card using the same flower stamp---some paper-piecing involved. I tried to keep this one as CAS as possible.
hello beautiful
Hope your day is beautiful! I will be back next for the first CAS-ual Fridays Challenge in 2013!

This is gorgeous!!! I have been intrigued by the copic craze lately and I want to buy some but I'm not sure if I'll really be able to color with them as prettily as everyone else did you take a class or have any tips? Beautiful work as always!
Big Hugs!

Two cards, two stunners, Virginia! Love how you used the dimension on the yellow stamens (is that the right part, I dunno?!) The flower pattern looks great as a flower!
