This is my first post of 2018. Life just got in the way of my posting until now, so I'm wishing everyone a belated Happy New Year. We are having bouts of extreme cold here in the South as are other regions. Just keeping warm has practically turned into a job. But at least today the sun is out and temperatures are reasonable for our area. We'll see what happens tomorrow.
If you haven't already seen it, my blog buddy Darnell has put together an amazing team for a new blog challenge: Twofer Card Challenge. The concept is to create two separate cards using the same stamps or dies. It's a lesson in stretching your supplies and adding to your stash all at the same time. I decided to join in and here's what I came up with:
I created a Valentine card and an anniversary card, which puts me ahead of the game since Valentine's Day is next month and our anniversary is in October. I heat embossed the Valentine and stamped the anniversary card.
Card Stock: Michael's Recollections 60 lb and 110 lb
Stamps: Fresh Squeezed Stamps Tickle My Fancy (company now closed)
Valentine Card: Sizzix Embossing Folder, Stampendous white embossing powder
Anniversary Card: Hero Arts Tide Pool ink; enamel hearts, my stash
Twofer Card Challenge - January - Feathers
Valentine Card only: CAS on Sunday#124 - Love or Valentine's Day
Anniversary Card only: Word Art Wednesday #316-317 - Anything Goes
It now occurs to me that I perhaps should have posted separate pictures of the cards in addition to the picture of them together as required by the Twofer Challenge. I will next time.
Thanks for visiting!
