Twofer Card Challenge #9

Hello and Welcome!

THANK YOU for your amazing entries in last month's challenge! We appreciate your enthusiasm and support and love to see how you interpret the prompt and stretch your stamps and dies and your design skills! This month our challenge prompt is:
Feel free to interpret the prompt however it inspires you, but remember to use the same leaf or leaves stamp or die on both your cards for two different occasions! 

Remember, too, that you are welcome to make two conventional designs using leaves as leaves! Every month we will have a "conventional" challenge winner from those who use their prompt stamp or die traditionally and, if there are any "unconventional" designs, we will also have an unconventional winner from those who use their prompt stamp or die in a nontraditional way!

Guest Designers

This month we are delighted to have both a conventional winner and an unconventional winner from our July challenge as our Guest Designers! 

Please welcome our conventional winner Linda W. (Scrappin', Stampin', and Singin') and her beautiful Twofer card designs!
Thank you, Linda!

Please welcome our unconventional winner Susan Joyce (Cat's Inkcorporated) and her two beautiful Twofer designs:
Thank you, Sue!

Design Team

We hope you will be inspired by the example creations from your Design Team! You can find the details on all these inspirational Twofers on the designer's individual blogs. We hope you'll take a closer look!

The challenge is open until 11:55 PM (PST) September 24th.
The winner and the Honorable Mentions will be posted 
at 12:05 AM (PST) September 30th.

The Winner(s) will have the opportunity to be a future Guest Designer!

  10. Wonderful prompt! Looking forward to playing along. Fabulous cards by the DT.

  11. Yes, yes, I KNOW Sue has used the same stamp! That's because it's such a blooming lovely stamp. I had it out on the table, all ready to use, when I saw Sue's post, and thought about changing it, but it's so perfect for what I wanted to do that I decided to stick to the plan.

  12. What a perfect inspiration for the season! Love playing along on the two-fer challenge. Hugs all!
