Twofer Challenge - Rain

Hi Everyone,

I have not been playing with the Twofer challenge in a while, but I got some time today and went to work....

I got that beautiful raindrop background from Local King Rubber Stamps recently and thought it's perfect for the theme. I made a sympathy card - unfortunately due to COVID-19 I needed to make several of those and a lighthearted card to balance it out.

I used those fun little Cats on Appletrees animals. The sentiment is by  Your Next Stamp.

For this card I used distress oxide inks to color in the background. The sentiment is by Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

Linking up with:
NBUS#13 - new background stamp (second card)
Craft Rocket Challenge - furry friends (first card)

I love your feisty animals on your first dew drop card. Is there a place in the US we can buy them? I love your sentiment on your sympathy card and did bookmark that one. hugs from across the email.

Awesome cards Cornelia and love that background stamp...looks so realistic! Love the cute critters on the one card too! Thanks so much for sharing with us at The Twofer Challenge!! :0)

Wonderful cards and I love the background stamp used on it.

Carol L said...

What a great twofer you've created! The paper is fantastic and looks like real raindrops! I love all the critters on the first card, especially the little doggie lifting his leg! LOL

That background had to be made for this Twofer...it's wonderful and you used it perfectly. Love the simplicity of the sympathy card...classy. Your critter card had me snorting coffee out of my nose...hilarious.

It's always a treat to see you and your designs at Twofer, Cornelia. I'm sorry to hear you've needed several sympathy cards due to Covid and I hope things have leveled off or tapered off where you are. Your sympathy card with this new raindrop background is heartfelt and beautiful. It will bring comfort.

And your lighthearted second design is also great because we need laughter in our lives, now more than ever. I certainly appreciated the guffaw that burst forth when I saw it! Nellie, not so much. I woke her from her pleasant doggie nap!!

Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #26 and for sharing at NBUS! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell

How awful to know people that have been affected by this awful virus, I'm so very sorry. We are very lucky to have only lost 11 people so far in our little country but I can't imagine how it must be to have lost thousands. Its just devastating. However, if there is one little good thing to come out of this, it would be your sympathy cards and my now learning about the Local King Rubber Stamp company. I've never heard of them before but I'm blown away by this stamp you used. Have just spent ages on their website looking at videos on their other background stamps.....they are stunning!! Now I can't wait to get back to gardening so I can buy some of their stamps in the future. Please stay safe and I have a feeling it might be your birthday too....so have a brilliant day!! xxxx

Den Effekt der Regentropfen hast Du mega super hinbekommen, bin schwer begeistert und kann mich gar nicht satt sehen.

Those are fabulous raindrops puddled, such a cool stamp. You certainly gave them different looks. The sympathy card is beautiful and I am sure will bring comfort. Your lighthearted card made me laugh. So irreverent. Thanks for playing along at Twofer Card Challenge.

Your blending is beautiful, Cornelia ... the addition of the simple vellum strip sentiment is perfect for your sympathy card. Those COATs critters are just downright fun ... even though that pooch has no shame!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)
