Twofer Challenge

 Welcome!  There is an exciting new card challenge in Blogland!
Darnell has created a new Twofer Card Challenge - we are to make two different card designs for two different occasions using the same stamps and/or dies.  This looks to be a fun challenge. 

I have been anticipating the first challenge and Challenge #1 is Feathers.  I was excited by this theme since I have a new stamp set Wise Owl by Jane's Doodles which has some great Feather stamps which I was anxious to use.  My first card was a CAS design featuring a feather used as a quill to write the words Happy Birthday (Gina K stamp).  I used Memento Tuxedo Black, London Fog, Desert Sand and Love Letter inks for stamping and heat embossed with Clear EP.  Finished with Black card base.

For the next card, I stamped feathers with Versamark ink and heat embossed with White EP on White CS.  I sponged this with Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink and cut with an Oval die and placed on a Scalloped Oval of White CS. I attached to a panel of MME pattern paper from Chalk Studio pad and to a white card base.  Finished with Gina K sentiment heat embossed with White EP and some enamel dots.
Note: I received the Wise Owl set as part of a prize that I won from Jane's Doodles for the Caring Hearts Card Drive.

Other Challenges:
AAA Cards: Game #106 Be inspired by the Quote- Let today be the start of something new. Used new stamps and entered new challenge.
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says use Patterned Paper
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge: January About Anything with Patterned Paper
Use Your Stuff: #294 Use something new. Used new feather stamps.

Thanks to Darnell and her team for the new challenge!
Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Two fabulous cards, Theresa ... I love the crisp CASness of the single quill penning the elegant sentiment on the first ... and the softness of the inking on the second is so pretty with the delicate embossed feathers! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

How fun that you got to use your new gift from Jane's Doodles for the Twofer challenge! Your cards are wonderful! I love the simplicity of the quill pen with the birthday sentiment, and then such a change up to that beautiful white embossed duo blended in red! Thanks for joining in on the fun over at Twofer Card Challenge!

Love your two cards. They are so very different despite using the same stamp. This is such a great idea, having the one feather showcased and then having a very feminine card with the feather stamped twice.
