One stamp two cards

This Stubby Stamper's stamp spoke to me in two ways - one as a birthday card and one as a Christmas card.
 Here the candles are a birthday card and colored with copics. The red background is done with Stubby Stampers stamp as are the words. The border around the words was done by leaving the paper in the die and tracing around it on the inside. The flames have star dust stickles. And then there are some Queen & Co. sequins around.

Now on to the Christmas card.
Once again the candle is colored with copics. I put a jar around the flame and put a row of dots around the jar and then added some more rows of lighter dots around the first. The flame has stickles star dust on it. The holly around the base of the candle are a holly border die cut from Memory Box. I cut the border into smaller pieces and glued them around the base of the candle. For the berries I used red stickles. The ribbon is from a florist shop in town. They asked if I was going to make a bunch of bows - no it is for cards, of course. lol. 
Have fun thinking of more than one way to use a stamp.
