Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hello, and welcome to another Stamp TV Weekly Challenge. Thanks, Karen, for inviting me back!!!
Today's challenge is called Vamp Your Stamp. I want you to use a single stamped image and make that your only focal on your card.
Here's a couple of samples:
 This sweet little chickodee is from one of my favorite GKD stamp sets, Winter Wings. He was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Distress Markers.  I used Marvy Liquid Applique for the snow and white Enamel Accents for the background. Then I layered everything up on GKD Black Onyx and Ivory card stock. The patterned paper is Colorbok Neutrals. I popped up the focal on fun foam to make it really stand out.
 For this card, I used the flower stamp from Nature's Greetings. It was embossed with GKD gold embossing powder and colored with Distress Markers. The patterned paper is from the GKD patterned paper pack Grateful Heart. This card was constructed the same as the card above.

Be sure to upload your project to the Gallery by 8:00 PM CST Sunday, November 29th
with the tag STV15MON47.

Thank You so much Judy for hosting this week. Wonderful challenge too! I can't wait to see the gallery this next week! :) <3

Oh this is an amazing challenge and amazing examples.  Love the layout and what you did to make the focal image pop. Gonna try to get this one done. 

Your cards are phenomenal!!!!! I wanna play :D

Haha, Judy! Vamp your stamp sounds very intriguing and lots of fun. This challenge will rock, and I'm sure there will,be lots of entries. Get ready to make lots of comments.

I think I would have to say that it should be a stamp, since you need to use a stamp somewhere on the card. Unless you use the stamp to make a background, then I suppose the die cut could be the focal. The idea is to not have much on the card.

got to put on my thinking cap............question.......can the focal be a shaped die cut? Or just stamps?

Love, love, love your birdy card..

Gorgeous - and so glad you used patterned paper too!

What a fun challenge!  I love your examples, too.

Both cards are stunning! I really like the color combo on the bird card.

I love the idea of this challenge as I find myself with a multitude of occasion cards and no occasion they fit.  Now I can make the card and save it and create a tag that fits the situation when it arises.  I am sure most of you have over come this hurdle but I tend to catch on a little slowly to those things...LOL

What gorgeous creations!  Fun challenge!!

Oooh I am loving your little Chickadee card, the snow looks awesome, so wintery!  Great Challenge, I think this is going to be harder than it looks!  ha
