Twofer Challenge #1

Hi Everyone,

my blogging friends started a new challenge and of course I have to play along!!!!
I am sure you all know about the TWOFER challenge - the master mind behind it is the beloved Darnell from djcardcreations.

So the idea is to take one stamp of die and make two different cards. The current theme is FEATHER.




The feather I used is from an ancient Hero Arts set. For the black card I heat embossed it in gold, added a large feather as well and colored it with Fine Tec mica water colors. The sentiment is by Papertrey. Added gold splatters and Washi tape at the bottom.

The white card is super simple as you can see. The same feather. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations and the cute little bird is another ancient stamp from a company I believe no longer exists. And to get Darnell excited it was an NBUS stamp! I did add some subtle grey shading to to feather.


Here are a bit bigger pictures.


What a FUN challenge! I am sure I'll be a regular there!

Happy Stamping!

Cornelia, these are just fantastic!!! Using a black base, with the rich, rich gold embossing and splatters was a fabulous idea. Such an elegant card. And that fun little bird floating on a feather was another great idea. Such a sweet and CAS card. Two delightful cards. Hope to see you in the gallery again. Thank you for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev

Your twofer is a real treat, Cornelia! Those feathers are practically glowing off the black cs! Mica, and splatters, and washi - oh my! That little bird with his orange beak and fantastic expression is adorable, and so perfect with the sentiment! He was NBUS well worth waiting for. I love that you placed him on the feather. Thanks for joining in on the fun at Twofer Card Challenge!

Such a clever and creative take on the fun and new challenge. Very classy first card and such a fun second card with a great sentiment x

Carol H. said...

Both of your cards are awesome! Love the two totally different looks, one elegant and the other so cute and fun---so pretty!!

This twofer was so worth waiting for...because both cards are absolutely fabulous. The elegant gold on black...so sophisticated and Audrey Hepburn-ish. And the bird (my current obsession) is completely charming with that sentiment. Brilliant on both counts...you win, hands down.

Oh my goodness, Cornelia ... those glowing gold feathers against the black ... elegant, chic, stylish and stunning! That little bird on his feather bed (hahaha!) is just the sweetest ... crisp, CAS, cute ... I so agree with the sentiment you chose! Thanks so much for playing along with us at our inaugural Twofer Card Challenge! Hugs, Anita :)

Betty Keefe said...

two fantastic cards, Cornelia - the gold and black is just gorgeous and the second card couldn't be cuter with the great sentiment and that little crow!!

Verna Angerhofer said...

The first is so elegant looking with the gold on the dark background. And the other one is so cute with just part of the feather being the source of transportation for that cutie.

Love that super-stylish black card with the gold feathers and splattering, and that little bird is fabulous!

Bożena Adamusińska said...

Two great cards, Cornela !! The white card is fun, but black simply receives speech! I love it, the gold on the black looks stunning, and the small golden dots, focused only around the pen, is an amazing complement to the picture.
Hugs,
BozenA

Fantastic feather cards, Cornelia! Love the first card with the two gold feathers on black. Very elegant and classy. The second CAS design is just plain fun!! It made me laugh when I read the sentiment --- just perfect!! Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge!

Ina Grehan said...

WOW! How clever you are Cornelia to have made 2 completely different cards with just those feathers. I adore the feathers on the black card and what a fun second card - so cool. Brilliant work.

Your cards are a perfect example of how to use the same stamp in very different ways. I Love your gorgeous, elegant 1st feather card and your sweet and silly 2nd card. TFS Cornelia. Hugs..

Susanne Vargas said...

Das ist aber schön, dass du auch bei der allerersten Twofer Card Challenge mitgespielt hast! Deine Karten sind natürlich wieder unglaublich spitze! Die schwarz-goldene schaut so edel aus und die andere so witzig - typisch Cornelia! Übrigens habe ich diese Federn auch - danke für die Inspiration!

Darnell said...

Haha, you funny, Cornelia! And you're right, I'm super becited! Not only did you use NBUS (yippie!!), but you rocked the Twofer concept with these outstanding card designs! The black with the gold feathers and the splatters and the strip of Washi tape ... it's all so super elegant and fabulous! And the "ruffled feathers" crow card is CASlicious to the MAX! I love everything about it, including the single enamel dot punctuation! Mwah! Thank you for wonderful shoutout and for playing in my first Twofer challenge! I already can't wait to see what you do next month!! Hugs, Darnell

Cathy said...

Fantastic cards Cornelia, the black one is very glamorous! those gold paints look stunning on black. I love the little bird on the feather, great sentiment too, Cathy x

Bobby said...

Those gold feathers are gorgeous, Cornelia, and that little crow propped up on the other feather goes well with that sentiment. I love them both.

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

Wow! I am amazed at how different these two cards are! This is definitely a tribute to your versatility as an artist. The first one is magical and elegant and breathtaking and the second is so wonderfully whimsical! I love how you showcased the same stamp in two amazing different ways. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Gorgeous CASilicious cards, Cornelia. Your cards are very different but equally impactful. Love how this new challenge is making us look at our supplies (loved, underused or NBUS) with fresh eyes. A worthy follow-up to Darnell's NBUS challenges. I had fun creating my Twofers as well.
