It's time for a TWOFER!

It's time for a new challenge at Twofer! I am thrilled to be the guest designer for this month at this fun and intriguing card challenge hosted by Darnelle
We are asked to create two different cards for two different occasions using the same stamps, stencils or dies. 

Our theme for this month's challenge is flowers! I chose to use the Bouquet Builder 6 stamps from Waffle Flower for my cards. 

Using flower images for two different occasions came easily. I chose a birthday and an encouragement greeting. A different way to use the images? I began with stamping on designer series paper. 

For the card above I stamped the floral spray directly onto the brick patterned paper and heat embossed in white. I added color with markers on the leaves. I wanted a bolder look for the flowers so they were embossed on colored card stock, cut out and adhered over the first stamping.

For the second card, I used patterned paper with a subtle design, and stamped the floral spray multiple times to create a background. I also added some distressing to the panel with a faint stripe.

The gold accent strip and trim on the die cut plus a few white gel pen highlights were the only embellishment needed. 

I sure hope that you will check out the Twofer Card Challenge and play along with us! It's really fun thinking of new ways to use your stamps, and inspiring to see what others create! 

 I am glad that you came by today. Happy Mother's Day greetings!
