Twofer Card Challenge #1 with Darnell

Everyone's good friend, Darnell has started a new challenge for all of us.

I thought this would be quite a challenge for me, but my mojo was working well and I think I did both of these cards in less than an hour and it only took me one time for each.  Love when that happens.  Of course, I sort of had an idea for the first one as I was laying awake at 3 in the morning thinking of it and a hint of how I wanted to do the second.  But to actually have them work is a MIRACLE...Lol

PTI's Feather Finery embossed in the first card and added some Nuvo Drops and then the second with CP inks and some Gina K. Foil Mates.  Doesn't show in the picture but the strip has blue marbled through it.  It's very pretty IRL.


Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Three a.m. is my favorite time to create..in my head! How fun that you actually remembered your beautiful 1st design and had part of your 2nd design too. They both turned out beautifully. TFS Linda. Hugs

  3. Two FANTASTIC cards Linda!! LOVE your designs and how you've used the feather and the bird with your sweet sentiment on the second card --- perfect --- love the colours too! And your sympathy card is so peaceful and elegant. Great job with the Twofer Challenge. So you design cards in your head in the middle of the night too ... we should start a support group. :) Thanks for playing along with us at the Twofer Card Challenge! xx

  4. Linda these are marvelous, and I love both of your designs! That feather is a fantastic stamp, and the embossing on the sympathy card is really lovely. The feathery wreath with its awesome sentiment is just sweet - made me smile! Two great cards. Thanks for joining in the inaugural challenge at the Twofer Card Challenge! Bev

  5. I'm so glad your mojo worked a miracle for you, Lin, and that this challenge didn't end up being TOO challenging! You sure achieved two awesome card designs. That feather is one of my favorites and it worked so well as both a sympathy card in a lovely plum color and a beautiful wreath for your bluebird! Thank you for the shoutout, support, and friendship, and thank you for playing in Twofer!! Hugs, Darnell

  6. Gosh these are so nice! I love the sentiment about birds and feathers. I love the little bird sitting on the circle of feathers. I love the colour you used for the feathers. Love the understated sympathy card too, what a beautiful colour way. There's a trend here then..love your cards!

  8. You did great on your two beautiful but very different cards using the same stamp set. That early morning creative thinking happens to me too. ;)
