Twofer Card Challenge #11

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 make two different designs for two different occasions! Making a Christmas card is the obvious choice, but it will be a challenge to think of a non-Christmas occasion for your second wreath design. Not to worry, we think you are up to the challenge!

Remember, you are welcome to make two conventional designs or a combination of one conventional and one unconventional design. Every month we will have a "conventional" challenge winner and, if there are any "unconventional" designs, we will also have an unconventional winner!

Our challenge has always been a card-only challenge where participants use only stamps or dies for the prompt element on their cards and the badge has reflected that. In the past few months, however, some participants have used stencils for their prompt element which has disqualified them from winning. 
Because of the growing popularity of stencils and the fact that many of us are now making our own stencils from dies (which sort of gets around the rule), we have decided to allow the use of stencils for the prompt element on all future challenges! Of course, you will still need to create two different designs using your stencil.
The badge has been changed as a result. If you have kindly placed it on your side bar, please replace the old badge with this new one:
Guest Designers

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

Please welcome our conventional winner, Carol (Our Little Inspirations) and her two beautiful WREATH card designs!
Thank you, Carol!

Please also welcome our unconventional winner, Sybrina (Chapter Three) and her two beautiful WREATH card designs!
Thank you, Sybrina!

  1. Congrats to the new GD of the month, and especially to my friend Carol!! :D
    Well done to all for the great inspirations!

  2. Thank you so much for including stencils in the challenge, I have been close to being caught out by this on previous challenges. It will definitely give more options. I have loads of stencils but don't use them as much as I should x

  3. What!??? Now you allow stencils? Geez..... did I make you change your mind? I like to think I did...A welcome rule change, so glad you allow them now. After all they are one of my favorite things to use! Not sure, if I can incorporate one into this theme...perhaps an extra level of difficulty...... ;)

  4. I love wreaths, I have one in mind and, by George, I'm going to play along this time. Fabulous samples, team! Welcome to your inspiring guest designers, too!

  5. Great challenge - can't wait to play along after missing last month! Just love all the inspiration cards - so clever!!

  6. Huge thanks to Darnell and the fabulous Twofer DT for the invitation to be a guest designer this month! It's an honor to be included with such crazy-talented card makers, and I can't wait to see what everyone does with this month's prompt. :)

  7. Fabulous cards by the design team and the guest designers. Looking forward to this one.

  8. Fun challenge and wonderful inspiration. Great you can include stencils now too X

  9. Another great prompt and stunning inspiration. Unfortunately I can't take part, again, this month, but hope to soon when life settles down xoxo

  10. What wonderful inspirations from the design team. [I did just notice that the other entries have wreaths on both of their cards. Am thinking that I messed up in my interpretation when my second card uses the die from my wreath but in a totally different way. Di, if both cards need to include a wreath, please let me know and I'll make a second wreath card. Thanks so much.]

  11. Glad you are allowing stencils now, even though I haven't used one this time. Now, shall I organise a sit-in for fans of embossing folders?

  12. Congratulations to Carol and Sybrina ! Another fabulous theme for us to play with and even more possibilities now with the stencils ! And amazing inspirational cards from you all ! x
