Twofer Card Challenge #19 ~ Nautical


Hi there blog friends! Darnell's Twofer Challenge is one of my all-time faves, and this month's theme is 'Nautical'...Yes! First things first...the rules ~



I grabbed my new SSS Anchor die and created my first card ~


I thought a shaker card would be fun for my sister. We recently had a good laugh about our summers at the beach, spending hours in the ocean with a truck tube :) I also think sending love is always a nice thing to do! The background panel was created with alcohol inks and the sequins are a variety from my stash. 

My 2md card is a thank you to my sweet hubby...he truly is my 'Anchor' ~


I started with ink blending with DOX inks and die cut the waves with a new MFT die. I stenciled soft clouds behind the anchor and added water droplets with Glossy Accents (a few too many). Lastly, I framed the scene with an antique frame die and embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder.

Here is the photo for Darnell's Challenge Blog ~


- Two different designs
- Two different occasions
- Using the same die on both cards

Darnell's challenge is open until the 24th, so there is still time to play along...go and check it out!

Hey Barb!! Wanted to thank you for the kind comment on my video.

These cards are delightful!! I love the shaker. That anchor is perfect for using on a shaker card. Makes me want it now!! I am liking the fun way you did the frame with that FUN die and the water. Such fabulous cards!!

I remember the truck tubes, but ours were spent on rivers, lakes and swimming pools, we didn't live by the sea. What a fond memory and such fun card designs too!

Love the shaker, Barb! What a fun memory! I remember floating on the lake in a big tube! So relaxing! Your second anchor card is awesome floating on the waves!

great twofer Barb, I love that die cut. It's perfect for your shaker card, and I love your gold anchor floating along in the sea :)

Darnell said...

You're always so good to me and Twofer, Barb! It's appreciated! That anchor really makes a statement on a card and I love it as a shaker in that deep ocean blue card for your sis, and gold-glad and rocking in the waves on your thank you card for your hubby! Love the ombre coloring, water drops, and that cool wavy frame, too! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #19! Hugs, Darnell

Drop the anchor, sister... or should I say 'anchors a WAY too cool!!'?
I'm home and so happy to find this waiting for me!

Barb, both of your cards are fantastic! I love the shaker anchor with what looks like the sea with its sea foam as you shake it! I always love to hear of good strong marriages - so glad he is your anchor! It really looks like metal, and those waves and droplets are wonderful! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

Anita in France said...

Love the drama of your first card, Barb ... seems that the anchor, with it's delicious shimmery sequin shaker, is positively glowing against the navy! Your sister will love it! How fabulous is that rich gold anchor ... it really does look as though it will withstand all those wonderful waves swirling around it ... perfect with the sentiment! So happy to have you playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

Hi,i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called MR ANTHONY. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for only money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions.. Four days later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, to my greatest surprise It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000 daily. ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address anthonbradley646@gmail.com
