Twofer Trees

Hi there. I’ve been trying some new techniques in my craft room, but have also had time to create a couple of CAS cards for the current challenge at Twofer Card Challenge. These are my cards:

The aim of the game at Twofer is to create two different designs for two different occasions using the same stamps/dies and/or stencils. The current challenge prompt is ‘TREES’.

I used one of the trees from Altenew ‘Moments In Time‘ stamp set. The first is stamping with tree to create and edge or border, and adding a stamped and die cut ‘awesome‘ from Altenew ‘Super Script‘ in the same colour card stock.

The second card is using the same tree with a sentiment added – clean and simple and one layer.

The tree images on both cards were stamped using Concord & 9th ink, and the banner for the turquoise card is also Concord & 9th card stock.

Even though these now look quite simple – it took me ages to actually plan what colours to use, and where to stamp the images – absolutely ages. It takes me longer for these kinds of cards than ones with more images and layers……………..

So – these two cards for the current challenge at Twofer.

Enjoy this moment….

A quick post to share the card I have made for the photo inspiration from (Pin)spirational:

I have been thinking about the photo inspiration for quite a few days now, and was going along the sparkles and the word ‘love’ – but then I saw how beautiful the tree was in the corner of the photo – and remembered this stamp from Altenew – ‘Moments in Time‘.

I began by cutting a circle out of some masking paper, and using the cut-out to ink blend two distress oxide colours. I used the circle shape to kinda represent the ‘o’ in the word love…..

Once dry, I then stamped the tree, then the sentiment, in Altenew Obsidian ink. I didn’t smudge anything! I am so pleased with myself!

I shall be entering the following challenges:
