Twofer Card Challenge #9

 Hi Everyone,

its time to play along with the current Twofer challenge. I almost didn't make it. I am going on vacation in two days and had to make a load of DT cards, but I had to squeeze this one in...

The theme is LEAVES.

My first card:

Made a birthday card with a Brusho background and that pretty leave die facing outwards. The sentiment is by Avery Elle. No idea by whom the die is.

  My second card:
Went with Halloween, what else would be a good option right now?

Had the leaves facing inward. Used rainbow paper as background  - a real time saver. Added some stamps (Teresa Collins, We R Memory Keepers) and a rat punch border (Martha Stewart)

This challenge just makes me happy!

Happy Twofing!

Such creativity and wonderful use of the fabulous die cut in two very different ways and two very different occasions x. The paper looks great too on the second one x.

If you don't win this challenge, I, most certainly, will want to know why. Both these cards are simply fabulous. That die looks equally as well on the Brusho background as it does on that amazingly detailed Halloween card. My jaw currently resides on the floor. Not to worry, I'll pick it up later.

Happy Twofing! I love that, Cornelia! Mind if I use it? We love that you love this challenge and we love the very creative ways you make two distinctly different designs with the same prompt! Here that cool leafy die works perfectly flanking the happy birthday sediment! I love it in white so it really pops off that warm autumn Brusho background! And it works equally well as a border for your beautifully colored and bewitching Halloween card! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #9! Safe travels and have a wonderful holiday!! Hugs, Darnell

Aha ... soso ... Du hast also bei mir abgeschaut!! ... *kicher* Aber das hat man nun davon, wenn man seine Karten öffentlich zeigt.
Aber wenn ich ganz ehrlich bin, so auf den ersten Blick erkennt man gar nicht, das es sich um die gleiche Stanze handelt, denn Du hast sie ganz anders ein gesetzt und schon ist ihre Wirkung eine ganz andere. Zeigt auch, wie vielfältig die Stanze ist!!

Wow! Two fantastic ways of using that leaf stamp. I really like how you made it look so spooky and fantastic on that Halloween design.

Great sponged background on your Halloween card and love how the pumkin's smile is glowing. Thanks for joining in the fun at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Tristan DT

Wow Cornelia, what an amazing Hallowe'en card! I love the way you've used those leaves and all those other wonderful die-cuts. Great stamped images, too. The wonderful background colours really add to the theme. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Susanne Vargas said...

I guess dies have a good side and a dark, spooky side as you showed us with your fabulous Twofer! You have created fabulous backgrounds for both the birthday card, as well as the Halloween card!
Great to see you in the Twofer Gallery!

Simply splendid, Cornelia ... what a spectacular twofer! The warm, rich tones of the brusho background show those crisp white leaves off to perfection ... and what a beautifully detailed, atmospheric and spooky halloween scene ... such a brilliant contrast to the first card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer ... we're delighted you love it! Hope your holiday is turning out to be wonderful! Hugs, Anita :)

Kara Lynne said...

Two brilliant cards, Cornelia! Your designs are so totally different from one another and each design is amazing! Your birthday card has a wonderful warm glow, and I love the "mood" you created with your black silhouettes and slivers of white highlight. Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!
