Twofer Card Challenge #31 ~ Trees

Hello and welcome!

I hope this finds you doing well! I'm pretty sure I'd be in a padded room somewhere by now if it weren't for our crafting community and this wonderful hobby. We make a difference by continuing to send love and cheer with our cards and I hope our challenge will inspire you to play along, have some fun, and make two cards for two special someones!
This month our challenge prompt is:
You know what September means in our little corner of Blogland? Time to get busy with those Christmas cards if you've been putting it off, refusing to make them during summer. So this month's prompt might see a lot of evergreen🌲 or🎄 on Christmas cards as one of your occasions! And then there are 🌳 and 🌴. . .
  1. Feel free to interpret the prompt however it inspires you to make two distinctly different design layouts for two different occasions. (If both occasions are not clear on the card fronts, please state the specific occasions in your post.)
  2. Please remember that you must use the same stamp (as opposed to the same set of stamps) and you may use digis for any elements of your Twofer designs, except for the prompt element.
  3. You're welcome to make two conventional designs or a combination of one conventional and one unconventional design. 
We appreciate your enthusiasm and support and can't wait to see you stretch your stamps, stencils, dies, and design skills! Please see the above tabs for more detailed rules, examples, and frequently asked questions.

Twofer Card Challenge #30 ~ Sun / Moon

Hello and Welcome!

We are so fortunate to have our crafting community to keep us feeling creative during the pandemic. We make a difference by sending our little works of art to spread love and cheer and we hope our challenge will inspire you to play along, have some fun, and make two cards for two special someones!
This month our challenge prompt is:
This means the common stamp, die, or stencil you use
 on your two cards can be either the sun🌞 or the moon🌝.

And how fun that there are several beach-themed challenges
in Blogland at the moment which you can combine with ours!

~~~

There were entries last month using two similar designs, rather than two different designs. To help you understand, please take a moment to read the Definitions/Examples tab above. The Winners tab will also be a great resource for examples of two very different designs.
We love your enthusiasm and support and can't wait to see how you stretch one of your stamps, stencils, or dies, and your design skills! You are welcome to make two conventional designs or a combo of one conventional and one unconventional design.

Guest Designers:

Please welcome Mac Mable (The Sweetest of Peas) with her Twofer designs using the Sun / Moon prompt! Thank you, Mac!
And please welcome Linda W. (Scrappin', Stampin' & Singin') with her Twofer designs using the Sun / Moon prompt! Thank you, Linda!

Twofer Card Challenge #29 ~ Winners!

Hello! 

We hope you are all keeping well and staying safe and sane. It's time to announce our Winners and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #29 ~ Butterflies! We had a wonderful turnout and 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:
Helen used her ingenuity to create these two stunning cards using a very large and gorgeous butterfly! It is a challenge trying to come up with two distinctly different designs when using such a large image. She let the single sparkly butterfly be the star of the card in bold blues on her splattered and distressed thinking of you card and then she over-stamped the butterfly several times in rainbow colors to create a visual feast on her birthday card!

Congratulations to our Unconventional Winner:
Lisa (My Paper Tales)
Lisa was just as clever and inventive when designing her two brilliant cards! One of Lisa's talents lies in her ability to apply subtle layers to her cards. If you don't click to enlarge and take the time to look closely, you might miss some of the understated details of her seamlessly layered designs. Like using a butterfly as wings on an angel, with two other butterflies tucked into the background!

Well done, Helen and Lisa!
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.
