Same stamp different cards

Ooops didn't realise it was so long since I blogged. 

Anyway to make up for it 2 cards in the same post, hopefully they show how the same stamp can be versatile and used for different ages.
This is the one I made for my husband's birthday earlier in the week.
It's a large card - 8 inch square with scalloped edges and has been covered with a brown and gold chevron type paper that i've had for ages. the cars and sentiments have all been stamped on cream cardstock using the same ink. It's a colorbox queue ink but i'm not sure of the colour. The stamps are from the one sheet and are made by Kanban.
This second one was made for our neighbour's son who celebrated his 2nd birthday on the same day.
I've used the same stamp, inked in a brighter colour then layered up onto a colourful number and vehicle backing paper.

I hope to get back into blogging again but knitting seems to be taking more of my time and cardmaking has taken a backseat for a while.
