Twofer Card Challenge #10 Winners!


It's time to announce our Winners and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #10! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and your sensational card designs! You all did a wonderful job with the HARVEST prompt! Once again, it was such fun seeing the ways you stretched your design skills and your stamps and dies!

Here are your winners!

Congratulations to our October "Conventional" Winner!
Izzy (Izzy Scrap) #21
Izzy made two charming designs with her harvest of pumpkins, mushrooms, and acorns! Her adorable hedgie standing on the tree stump on a glorious day surveying his bountiful harvest is beautifully colored and staged. The spotlight circle, sentiment, and leaf bling are all thoughtful elements to complete the design. For her second card, Izzy brilliantly whirled her bountiful harvest into a wreath for her unique thank you card filled with movement and joy!

Congratulations to our October "Unconventional" Winner!
Sonja (Visiting Oldpunks) #15
Sonja was our only unconventional entry this month! She made two wonderfully clean and simple designs. Her apple stamp is so sweet hanging from its branch on her first design and she very cleverly turned her apple into a pumpkin for her second design! Sonja's warm colors, blending, and framing are all stunning and well executed!

Well done, Izzy and Sonja! 
Here is your Winner's Badge to proudly display on your blogs!
I will be in touch with details about being our future Guest Designers!

Congratulations to our fabulous October Honorable Mentions!

Even though the idea of harvest and Thanksgiving are foreign to her, Kylie forged ahead to play in the challenge. The three pumpkins on her thank you card are beautifully masked and stamped to show depth.  For her Halloween card, Kylie did an amazing job of carving her pumpkin and best of all it lights up! The jagged border and choice of sentiment work so well with the lines of the carved pumpkin!

Sue created two outstanding and different CAS designs with her wheat silhouette stamp. For her sympathy card, she added a brightly colored sunset behind the wheat which really makes an impact and the subtle side border balances the design. Sue's thank you card design features tone-on-tone hues and subtle copper stamping. Her finishing touches in black really bring this card to life!

Marina chose a loaf of bread which is the ultimate result of a grain harvest! It's her first-ever Thanksgiving card, made for an American friend of her daughter. The square design and beautiful choice of patterned paper were inspired design choices with great colors and shimmer. Marina made a very amusing second design for her new baby card by featuring her loaf of bread as a "bun in the oven!" Her simple coloring to light up the oven and her fun sentiments work perfectly to complete the design!

Sue's first design shows the impact that can be achieved with great placement of her wheat image and some crisp black-on-white embossing. The deckle-edged card base adds extra interest to her simple and elegant one-layer sympathy card.  For her second design, Sue created a gently drifting field of wheat for her thank you card. She achieved a sense of depth by using different shades of soft yellow and her pair of playful Brusho butterflies and use of rustic twine add lovely dimension!  

Rosi put a tremendous amount of thought and work into her two inventive designs. Her duo of cards tells the story of Miss Gorjuss harvesting apples, then baking a pie with them! Rosi created and expertly colored a sweet fall scene on her first card and her second card front is a real recipe for apple pie! Her fun design with many hand-drawn elements is very impressive!

Congratulations to all you talented ladies!
Here is your Honorable Mention badge for you to display with pride!
We look forward to seeing your creative and awesome Twofer Card Challenge designs next month! The challenge will run from November 10 to November 24, 2018

Thank you again!! Mwah!

Twofer Card Challenge #10

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, dies, and design skills! This month our challenge prompt is:
Feel free to interpret the prompt however it inspires you to represent the fall season of bountiful crops, pumpkins, scarecrows, ripe grapes on the vine, hot apple cider ... . There are endless possibilities, but remember to use the same stamp or die on both your cards, making two different designs for two different occasions! 

You are welcome to make two conventional designs using your stamp or die or two unconventional designs or a combination. 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!
