Hello … bonjour! It’s the 10th of the month … and that means we have a delicious new challenge for you at Twofer! This month we’re inviting you to enjoy …
… I chose a pie from Waltzingmouse Stamps (no longer in business) as my common sweets image. On my CAS one layer autumn greetings card, it’s a pumpkin pie, set on a gingham table cloth, all ready to slice and share. For my birthday card, I went unconventional this time around … and turned the pie into autumn blooming flowers. Here’s a closer look at each card … Here, my simple design puts the pumpkin pie centre stage. Although it’s one single stamp, I used three different ink colours for it (bit tricky!) … one for the base, another for the crust and the third for the creamy filling (which was covered in Wink of Stella to mimic powdered sugar!). The pie was masked, I stamped the table cloth (from Clearly Besotted) over it … and added the Pretty Pink Posh sentiment to finish it off.
My unconventional card was a little more involved …
… with the image taking up the lower left corner of my design. The blooms are made up of Papertrey stems, with the pie flower heads ombré stamped in four colours. I added the happy birthday sentiment (also Papertrey) and cut the panel with a Winnie & Walter scalloped, pierced die. The base card was blended around the edges with Distress Ink and the panel was adhered over the top. I added gems to the flower centres and finished off with a scattering of shimmery sequins topped with bronze Nuvo drops.
How would you like to join us with your two distinctly different takes on sweets … we’d love to see what you create in our gallery!
