Twofer Challenge #33 // CAS Colors & Sketches #397 // As You See It #239 // Mojo Monday #550 //Just Us Girls #563

 Twofer Challenge...Stars



The Twofer Challenge asks us to create two different designs for two occasions using the same stamps, stencils and/or dies...and follow the given theme.  The theme for the current challenge is STARS.
I used the same star stamp on each card and I also used the same die.  The die cuts out 5 stars...I used two on the one card as stars and on the second card I used the other two stars and cut off the tips for trees.  Now a have a forest of gingham Christmas trees!!


This first card was create not only by the Twofer challenge but also for three other challenges.  First, the Just Us Girls color challenge called for Green, Blue, and Purple.  Which was perfect for the second challenge...the As You See It challenge which asked the question..."The color I avoid using most is_____."  Well for me that is purple!!  The third challenge that inspired this card was the Mojo Monday Sketch challenge #mojomonday550.



The second card for the Twofer challenge was also inspired by the color challenge from CAS Colours and Sketches.  Their color combo for the current challenge is Purple Posey, Basic Gray and Blackberry Bliss.  I sponged Blackberry Bliss ink onto each of my Purple Posey gingham tree/star tips, stamped a Blackberry Bliss night sky, and finished it off with some Basic Gray card stock and stamped stars.

I am really getting interested in this 2fer challenge, I'm starting to see it quite a bit lately, I will have to take a closer look. Great job combining all those challenges on your second card, it is super sweet. Great idea using the larger stars as trees. Very creative. Thanks so much for joining us this week at CC&S

These are just great, Deb! I love your sweet new baby card with the texture and gingham and adorable sentiment! And how clever of you to use the star points as gingham mountains under a starry sky on your Christmas card! Thank you for playing in TCC #33! Keep safe and well! Hugs, Darnell

Purple seems to be the nemesis of many crafters! I like the use you've made of the star dies and making them trees - very clever. Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenge.

That's a clever way of making trees, dj, by using the star tips. I like the way you've sponged the edges to give them definition. Thanks for playing along with our Not My Jam challenge at As You See It Challenges.

Bravo DJ - not one but two cards using your dreaded purple! This seems to be a colour disliked by many crafters! Creative use of your stars too which really demonstrates their versatility. Thanks for sharing with us over at As You See It this week!

LeAnne said...

Wow, this is very clever..and I am with you on the purple! Pale purple is not too bad, I can handle that! I love how you used the points of the stars to create your trees! Thanks for playing with us at As You See It with your beautiful creation!
