Hello … bonjour! It’s time to get excited all over again … our next Twofer Card Challenge starts right now! Thanks to your ingenuity and creativity, our first gallery was chock full of fabulous cards showcasing two different designs … for two different occasions … using the same stamps and/or dies. How about stretching those creative muscles again this month? This time round, our word prompt is … Here’s where I went with my Twofer …
The thing that these two CAS cards have in common is the Concord & 9th die cut heart … all the other elements are distinctly different. Here’s a closer look at each one …
Here, I made the hearts into delicate flowers … using just the outline cuts turned upside down and adhered along the centre line to a kraft card base. They’re folded up a little to add interest and dimension. The stems are made from very slender strips of cardstock, attached flat to the base. I white heat embossed a birthday sentiment from Winnie & Walter … and added a drift of enamel accent dots to mimic seed heads floating in a summer breeze.
My Twofer …
This time I used a series of whole hearts in my design. They were cut from a piece of card that had been rainbow watercoloured with Distress Inks … and were adhered flat to a panel of black cardstock in a graphic pattern. The Sending Hugs sentiment was made up of two dies from SSS and I added a Lucy’s Little Gem to each heart (to match the background colour). The panel was trimmed down and popped up on craft foam onto a white card base … the white border ties the white sentiment into the design.
Voilà … my two distinctly different designs … for two distinctly different occasions … using the same die!
So … will you let your creative imagination run wild with ‘Hearts’? We’d love to see your two distinctly different cards … for two distinctly different occasions … using the same stamps/dies … in our gallery! All the information you need, including timescales, guidelines, rules and FAQs, along with loads of fantastic inspiration from the wonderful DT … is over at the Twofer blog … it’s just a click away! Hope you can join us!
