Twofer Card Challenge #20 ~ Winners!


It's time to announce our Winners and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #20! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and your sensational card designs! You all did a wonderful job with the CRITTERS 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 design layouts!

Here are the winners!

Congratulations to Nancy (Scrapper at Heart)
Nancy has created two very distinct designs using her fabulous fat hen! She was very adept with her masking on her first encouragement card for a friend. She offset her mat panel in order to show the great texture and she tied on her sentiment with a cute button. For her birthday card, she let a solo hen be the star of the show ~ with a little help from the wee egg! Her composition lets the eye flow from top to bottom with lots of interest, texture, and dimension!

Well done, Nancy! 
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 September Honorable Mentions!

#5 Jenny (My Paper Epiphany)
Jenny's NBUS mice are as sweet as can be! Her birthday card is all stitched up, both faux and die cut, and framed with the embroidery hoop. For her card filled with love and hugs, a wee friend has come along to share the feast with her. Jenny created two adorable clean and simple and distinctly different designs for two different occasions.

#26 Bonnie (Stamping With Klass)
Bonnie's ostriches flat out made the Team laugh! The two designs are different, and each is very appropriate for the occasion sentiment. Bonnie angled the ostriches on her birthday card to give just the right amount of ostrich attitude and the embossing and torn softly-inked edges add lots of interest. Bonnie's Halloween card with her ostrich dressed as a witch is hilarious and enclosing her within the half-circle with a vibrant background draws the eye right to her. 

Barb's creations are always boldly colored and delightful and these designs reflect that. With her coloring skills, Barb has managed to make these squirrels look completely different as the focal points of both beautifully constructed designs. They seem chilly against the icy blue sky and snowy Christmas landscape and warm and cozy in the cloudy, acorn-embellished autumn landscape.

#34 Marcia (Marcia's Stampin' Pad)
Marcia's light-hearted and distinctly designs showcase her mummy-bunny perfectly! Her Halloween design is just right for a child because the beautiful composition is more adorable than scary. Marcia's get well design using the bunny's mummy wrap as bandages and having him lie on a "bed" is just plain genius!

#39 Clara ([Clark] My Favourite Day)
Both of Clara's vastly different designs are creative and fun! In spite of the sweet panda being black and white, Clara added bright colors with her embellishments. Using kraft and texture with her fun elements for both occasions added even more interest.

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 Twofer Card Challenge designs next month! The next challenge will run from October 10 to October 24, 2019
