Twofer Card Challenge #10

 Hi Everyone,

its Twofer Time.
The theme is HARVEST.

Now that is tricky. Harvesting what? I thought of mice (they love it) and apples and then I checked to see what other people do for this and they are harvesting leaves (why not....) pumpkins and grains.....so I figured I can harvest Chinese Lanterns. I always loved those plants and their pretty seedpods brighten up any fall garden. 

This is a stamp by Lavinia - NBUS, but dearly loved and it finally got its debut.

For the first card I did generational stamping, colored the first one with Inktense and added Finetec gold splatters. The lovely sentiment is a die cut mailed to me by the lovely Aileen Ryan a while back, no idea about the company.

Love those gold splatters. Finetec is just one wonderful product!

For card number 2 I stamped the Chinese Lantern upside down and added white gel pen accents. Also added generous Wink of Stella, but you can't really see that. an another die cut sentiment from my friend Aileen.

A challenging challenge, but I would not want to miss participating!

Happy Twofing!

You really made your NBUS image feel special with its debut inking, Cornelia! It's a stunning stamp and I love how you have used it to design your cards! The intense bold red is so striking with the shadow background and all the gold touches and turning them upside and enhancing them with white was just plain inspired! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #10! I appreciate your playing and enthusiasm every month! Hugs, Darnell

Yes, Harvest can mean anything that come from the ground and I love Chinese Lanterns, too. Such a happy plant and yours certainly reflect that. Love the red ones with the touch of gold...and the kraft card just makes me tingle. Wish I could see the sparkly bits.

Great interpretation of the challenging, challenge theme. Great stamp and love what you've done with it on both of your fabulous cards x.

You really brought those Chinese lanterns to life, Cornelia. I love the uncolored ones tucked behind the bright red ones. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.

Oooohhh wie schööööön!!!
Beide Karten sind großartig, wobei mir die rot/goldene besser gefällt, aber das liegt wohl daran, dass ich ein absoluter Rotfan bin.
Liebe Sonntagsgrüße

There's just something special about balloon flowers, isn't there?! This is an incredible stamp, and you've made two wonderful cards with it. The rich gold added to the orange, along with those spatters really makes the images pop. Beautiful. And I do love the images on kraft paper too. That's a clever idea, and one I must remember, lol!! Two very nice cards. Thanks so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev

Really wonderful Twofers. I love how you made two different types of cards with the flowers.

Anita in France said...

Beautiful designs, Cornelia ... you've made that NBUS chinese lantern image shine on both cards! The first, with the bold colour and shimmery gold splattering is so eye catching and gorgeous ... and I love how you've made your second take soft and subtle ... white, black and kraft ... delicious! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

Cathy said...

Great take on the theme Cornelia, love your use of the lantern stamp, Cathy x

Kara Lynne said...

I had to smile when you were saying, "harvesting what?". Well, why not Chinese Lanterns - ha! They look like autumn to me, anyway. Such a gorgeous image, especially the way you work your magic, Cornelia! I love the brightness of the white gel pen against the neutrals, and also your combination of deep orange and gold. Gorgeous cards! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

Gorgeous Twofers Cornelia, love the first one with all that golden goodness, WOW!! the Chinese Lanterns really glow!!!
Your second card is awesome too, love the Kraft paper and how these Chinese Lanterns pop off the page beautifully. I can see the Wink of Stella too.
Fabulous cards, my dear.
Thank you for sharing.
Maria Rodriguez.

PS. I'm going to take a look at that Finetec gold, looks amazing.

Liz said...

These Chinese Lantern images are beautiful and you've created two very different beautiful cards. xx

Izzy Scrap said...

Wow ! These two cards are gorgeous. I really love these flowers, my mum used to have some in her garden. In France their name is “Amour en cage”, a name as beautiful as the flowers! Love the vivid orange/red colour with the black stamping behind. The gold splatters add such beautiful dimension. These Chinese lanterns are also gorgeous in black and white over the craft card. Two stunners, Cornelia ! Thanks so much for inspiring.

I also love Chinese lanterns. Tried to grow them in my front yard but some bugs kept eating the leaves... That stamp is beautiful and I love how you used it in different ways! The gold splatters and grey shadow looks fantastic and the black and white version paired with kraft gives it a completely different look!
Great to see you in the Twofer gallery!
