Twofer Card Challenge #28 ~ Winners

Hello! 

We hope you are all keeping well and staying sane. It's time to announce our Winners and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #28 ~ Circles/ Bubbles! It was fun and inspiring to see the ways you stretched your design skills and used the same stamp, stencil, or die in creative ways on your two different cards for two different occasions. Well done, everyone!

Here are the winners!

Congratulations to our Conventional Winner:
Mac (The Sweetest of Peas)
Mac gives new meaning to the word texture with her two designs bringing these underworld scenes to life! Her bubbles made a wonderful backdrop for her dimensional seahorse and jellyfish! You will be doing yourself a favor by clicking over for a closer look!

Congratulations to our Unconventional Winner:
What if you have a Christmas tree stamp or die, but no baubles or ribbon to decorate it? No problem! With her joyous Christmas card, Linda cleverly showed us how our undersea bubble and seaweed stamps can be used to decorate our Christmas trees! And her goldfish blowing 3D bubbles makes a fantastic encouragement card!

Well done, Mac and Linda!
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!

Twofer Card Challenge #26 ~ Winners!

Hello! 

It's time to announce our Winners and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #26 ~ Rain/Umbrella! It was fun and inspiring to see the ways you stretched your design skills and used the same stamp, stencil, or die in creative ways on your two different cards for two different occasions! 

Here are the winners!

Congratulations to our Conventional Winner:
Both of our winners showed the concept of Twofer brilliantly. Jenny was able to create two completely different design layouts without altering her darling umbrella-toting hippo. For her encouragement card, Jenny has her hippo hanging in there on a cloudy day in the city, while her sweet hippo friends remain grounded. And on her second design, her hippo is celebrating by making a splash in a fun shaker card design! 

Congratulations to our Unconventional Winner:
Linda gave us excellent inspiration for how to make unconventional Twofer cards. She made a conventional get well design on the left with a cheery and colorful umbrella card. And then the fun begins when it takes a minute to find the umbrella in Linda's unconventional birthday design! She made the cutest umbrella turtle holding colorful balloons by its little tail and then she drew on a head checking you out and adorable fat turtle toes!

Well done, Jenny and Linda! 
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!
