Multi-Layer Images From a Single Stamp

Ummm...' I haven't posted in, like...FOREVER!  That's not to say that I haven't been crafting, I just haven't found the time for blogging.  Good thing I'm not a professional blogger...I'd be broke for sure!  So, this is my attempt at resuming blogging!  Wish me luck!

This week I wanted to start by participating in PTI's Make-It-Monday whose topic is creating multi-layer images from a single stamp.  Here's Betsy Veldman's example:

Can you believe that all of these medallions are made from a single stamp each?  I'm excited to make some tags with these same stamps, but I didn't want to do that for my MIM entry since I felt I would just be copying Betsy.  So...I went hunting for another stamp that might work for this technique.  I have been dying to use my Irresistibly Ikat set and thought I would try it out here.  Here's what I came up with:
I just love this large focal image and I wanted to try a color combo that may be a little unexpected.  Here I've used Royal Velvet, Orange Zest and Hawaiian Shores.  The color combo is fantastic in person! 
Another thing I have started doing lately is making at least two cards each time I start creating.  My card stash has been thinning lately and I wanted to bulk it up a little. :)  So, here's my second card:

 Same but different...right? 

Well, thanks for stopping by and checking my creations out.  I've missed you!
