Twofer Challenge #6

Hi Everyone,

you knew this was coming, right? My entry for Twofer Card Challenge #6.
The theme is tree.
This was actually kind of easy for me, but I just needed to eek out some crafting time and decide on which tree to use....



I settled on a graphic one from the Scandinavian Print set by Neat&Tangled. And of course, one of my cards turned into a Christmas card. I never have too many of those.....


The cute deer are from Cats on Appletrees, the sentiment is from the same N&T set. I used my Catherine Pooler inks. They give you good coverage with one time stamping - perfect for those silhouette stamps. Only the black needs repeated stamping, unfortunately.


I couldn't resist to put a little red gem onto one of the deer.....


My second card is a more graphic card - used the same tree and turned it upside down for every other stamp. Again, I used my Catherine Pooler inks. the die cut is from STAMPlorations, as is the little happy. Added Washi tape and an enamel dot.


Glad i made it. Wouldn't want to miss a Twofer challenge! Too much fun!


Happy Stamping!

Great twofer cards, Cornelia! The layers of green shades of trees are pretty and interesting, The deer are so cute, especially the one with the red gem. Thanks so much for sharing this card with us at CAS Christmas!

And how clever to use the same tree stamp for a graphic design-ish pattern of the second card! The rainbow colors and the black/white stripe washi tape have a great impact. Love the hidden sentiment and the wonderful design. Hideko xx

Robyn Oliver said...

Cath Wilson said...

Great graphic design here - they look great and stamping the tree upside down is genius!

Deine bunten Weihnachtskarten sind mal was gaaaaanz Anderes!!!

Liebe Wochenendgrüße

Kathy Klersy said...

I really love your unique ways of using the tree as a background stamp! Thanks for joining us at Happy Little Stampers this month!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the graphic vibe on both these cards. It doesn't hurt that you've used those darling reindeer (I'm sure it cried out for the red nose). And hiding the sentiment amongst the cool design you made with your trees is really clever.

Verna Angerhofer said...

These are so wonderful the way you used the same trees two different ways. I think they are both amazing designs.

HilaryJane said...

Thanks for visiting me and leaving a lovely comment. The thing that stands out for me on your lovely cards are the colours, then I saw you have used Catherine Pooler inks - say no more. I think I shall be buying more of these. I just love the colours. xx

Darnell said...

Ah, thank you for the support, Cornelia! We love having you play and appreciate that you joined in challenge #6! Your tree designs are sensational! I am really impressed by how well the image worked as an every-other-one graphic image on your rainbow birthday card! Very unique thinking, which I've come to expect from you! Your Christmas card really made me laugh and I immediately started thinking of all the conversation bubbles that would work over their heads! Rudolph is like, "Whoa, dudes, I think you forgot something! You know, like the sleigh maybe? And the old fat dude?! And, um, me at the front?" Bwahaha! Hugs, Darnell

Bonnie said...

Very clever use of these trees, Cornelia! I love Rudolph and his friends playing reindeer games! So playful and fun! And the staggered trees make a beautiful border for a birthday wish! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!

Loll said...

I LOVE your style Cornelia! Two amazing cards using the tree stamp. LOVE the layered stamping to create a beautiful forest of trees. Those reindeer are adorable and look so happy jumping over the trees. Rudolph look happy just watching the others being crazy! :)

And your birthday card is awesome! LOVE the rainbow of trees. Alternating the position of the trees for stamping is genius! The black and white striped washi tape looks perfect on both cards. Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge and CAS Christmas! xx

Christine Alexander said...

such a beautiful effect with the trees, I love the simple over stamping of the trees and the reindeer and the trees. thanks for joining us at CAS Christmas

Anita in France said...

Those layered Christmas trees have so much delicious depth to them, Cornelia ... just the perfect spot for those fun frolicking reindeer ... love that red gem nose for Rudolph ... so pleased you couldn't resist doing that!! Rainbow colours, graphic style, camouflaged die cut, black and white stripes ... goodness, what's not to love on your cool, vibrant birthday card ... brilliant! Thanks so much for playing along with us this time (and every month!) at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)
