Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing my Twofer cards for challenge #9 where the prompt is "leaves." You are to make 2 cards using the same stamps/die for 2 different occasions.
I made a get-well card along with a birthday card using a leaf stamp from Hero Arts.
The flowers and leaves are both from Hero Arts, and I stamped and fussy-cut all of them, placing them on a GMD stitched die-cut oval which was placed on an embossed background done with a Cuttlebug Geometric Rings ef. The leaves were stamped on green dsp that has wood grain printed on it, and I curled them around a pencil and popped them up on mini foam squares for dimension. I colored the flowers with Zig markers and dotted the centers with markers and glaze pens in green, brown, yellow, and black. The sentiment is by SU! and I added 3 Nuvo black dots before placing it on a rose red cardbase. I also dotted the centers of each design on the embossed piece with Nuvo glitter drops just to fancy it up a little more :)
The birthday card is on a Hello Honey card base, and I used an EK punch to create the lower border; inlaying the punched negatives back into the border with assorted autumn colors of cardstock. I used the Hero Arts leaf to stamp the black panel with Versamark and heat-embossed it with gold ep. I stamped several more images again with Versamark ink and this time I embossed with a cadmium colored ep which gave the leaves a copper and gold two-toned look.
Here's a close-up and if you click on it, you can really see the two-toned effect. It looks better IRL but it's hard to photograph.
So there is my Twofer #9 for September 2018. I hope you liked the cards, and thanks as always for stopping by. Make it a great week ahead while you're at it!
