Hi there ~ I always enjoy playing along with Darnell's Twofer Challenge, and as soon as I saw the September prompt, I ransacked my stash for my leaves...I decided to use a die from the MFT Fab Foliage set.
The rules are: We can interpret the prompt however it inspires us, but we must use the same leaf or leaves stamp or die on both cards for two different occasions ~
Here is my first card ~
I started by embossing the top panel with PTI Linen/Canvas Impression Plate, die cut the border, then the rose and leaves using PTI felt. I added a sentiment, a large pearl, and a few gems, and that was it!
For my 2nd card, I decided to create a wreath with the leaves ~
For this card, I die cut the leaves with Bristol cardstock, then sponged them with distress inks. I also spritzed the leaves with Shimmer Spray, then embossed the sentiment and added a few red gems from my stash. Here is a close-up of the sparkly leaves:
So pretty in person...
And, here is a photo of both cards for the Twofer Challenge Blog
Darnell and her team have provided lots of beautiful inspiration on the Challenge Blog, so be sure to check it out...I also have a badge on my sidebar with the rules of the challenge, if you would like to play along!
Have a great weekend, everyone...Thanks so much for stopping by,
