Twofer Card Challenge #21 ~ Winners!


It's time to announce our Winners and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #21! 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 your two different design layouts for two different occasions!

Here are the winners!

Congratulations to our October Conventional Winner!
Jane (Onions and Paper) #13
Jane used yummy vanilla donuts as her SWEETS prompt. Both her pretty patterned trifold card design and her rainbow-enhanced CAS design showcase her donuts deliciously!

Congratulations to our October Unconventional Winner!
 Jacquie (What Did I Do Today?) #23
Jacquie used sugar cookie dies as her shared SWEETS prompt. She created a box and wrapped her cookies in tissue paper for her unique Christmas card design and she used the star cookie die as real stars to decorate her baby card design!

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

Congratulations to our fabulous October Honorable Mentions!

Linda used the cutest little gingerbread cookies as her SWEETS element on both her new baby card and her Christmas card. She meticulously colored, masked, and used patterned paper to make these distinctly different and adorable designs!

Rosi (Let's Take Time ...) #8
Rosi used teeny-tiny cupcakes as her SWEETS element on both cards. She cleverly made her cupcakes creepy by turning them into parts of an eyeball bouquet with a creative pumpkin sentiment for her Halloween card and she showcased them under glass in rainbow colors with a colorful Washi tape background for her birthday card!

Sharon B. (Sea View Scrapping) #10
Sharon also used cookies for her SWEETS element and chocolate chip cookies have never looked cuter! Each brilliant design is like a story book cover with sweet pink and brown colors on one and traditional red and green on the other. Every detail is darling on both fun cards!

Sonja (Visiting Oldpunks) #11
Sonja used an ancient NBUS tiered plate of delicious-looking and delicately-colored cakes for her SWEETS element on both her different designs. Her stitched and scalloped oval frame is perfect for the goodies on her holiday card and the cross-stitched background on her encouragement card (pink for BCA month) is reminiscent of high tea linens!

Kathy (My Asperations) #20
Kathy was very inventive with her use of donut icing for her SWEETS element on both her delightful designs! You have to check out the details of how she made that B in BOO for her Halloween card and the inside sentiment on her fabulous friendship card will make you laugh!

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 November 10 to November 24, 2019
