Twofer Card Challenge #15 ~ Winners!


It's time to announce our Winners and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #15! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and your sensational card designs! You all did a wonderful job with the ZOO ANIMALS prompt and you rocked the concept of two different designs for two different occasions! 

Once again, it was such fun seeing the ways you stretched your design skills and used the same stamp, stencil, or die in creative ways on both your designs! And all 45 of you made conventional designs this month!

Congratulations to our April Winner!
Coni brought so much fun to the gallery with her designs! She very cleverly gave her giraffe a girlfriend and a car in her amusing friends design and her coloring is perfect. For her belated birthday card, it must have taken her an incredible amount of time to mask her giraffe and make an entire gang of them ~ and give them eyeballs! That's commitment!

Well done, Coni! 
Here is your Winner's Badge to proudly display on your blog!
I will be in touch with details about being our future Guest Designer.

Congratulations to our fabulous April Honorable Mentions!

Sonja created two very distinctly different and well-executed designs! Her baby card is cute and colorful with a pretty watercolored background and sweet cross-stitch border. For her second card, Sonja turned her die-cut giraffe into an unexpected and clever feature element on her marvelous steampunk design! For even more interest, she added a fun clipped note paper sentiment!

Hannelie was very creative in her use of geometric giraffes for her two designs! Her first card is very masculine with the splashes of brown and gold giraffe colors. And her second CAS design is very fun with the whimsical black and white background made from repeatedly stamping the sentiment. She added more interest by coloring her giraffe in primary colors and adding yellow, red, and blue punctuation!

Jeanne made two very creative and amusing designs. She had no traditional zoo animals in her stash so she cleverly used a leaping lamb ~ which one could find in a petting zoo ~ as her featured animal! Her CAS Christmas card features the lamb as an applique on a soft and warm winter sweater. And for her second design, Jeanne created a wonderful scene on her spring birthday card featuring her little lamb "springing" over a white picket fence!

Ishani also brought us a couple of creative and amusing designs with her happy hippo as her featured animal! She made a unique border and used a funny sentiment and great background on her CAS birthday card. For her second design, she did a brilliant job of masking a mob of adorable hippos for her thank you card. Then she went the extra mile by adding fun tiny bows and tiny hats to her huge hippos!

Jill's designs were stand-outs! She used animals from the entire African section of the zoo and they look amazing in silhouette on her spectacularly blended Savannah sunset card and as the background in sweet pastels on her new baby card. Adding the fun interactive shaker element and bold sparkly sentiment to her baby card design will make this a family keepsake!

Congratulations to all you talented ladies!
Here is your Honorable Mention badge for you to display with pride!
