Whew! A new challenge that has you make two different designs using the same stamp or die and different occasions. The Twofer Card Challenge should be a fun one. I played along with it as well with the CAS Watercolour Challenge and The Paper Players Challenge.
The card on the left is done using Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide inks to make a watercolored background for the heart. Actually the heart was cut out of my first attempt and I didn't like it but it did beautifully as a die cut. The stamps I used are both from Stampin' Up! The sentiments are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and the other is the Amazing You stamp set. They were stamped using Poppy Seed ink from Taylored Expressions.
For the card on the right, I used the colors from The Paper Players. I made my own background paper by stamping Real Red ink and Crumb Cake ink using the little heart from the Jar of Love stamp set by Stampin' Up! I stamped it off so the colors would be softer and stay in the background. The sentiment on the bottom right is from the retired Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent stamp set. It was stamped using Poppy Seed ink from Taylored Expressions.
The hearts were cut using the Sunshine Wishes Dies by Stampin' Up! For the labels I used the Modern Label Punch and the Word Window Punch both retired from Stampin' Up!. The finishing touches were adding some Nuvo Winter Blizzard Glitter Drops to the birthday card and Pearl Basic Jewels to the anniversary card.
Both of my cards have been entered in the Twofer Card Challenge. I've also entered the card on the left in the CAS Watercolour Challenge and the card on the right in The Paper Players Challenge. For all the challenge details and to share your projects, click the images below.
