Darnell's Twofer Challenge

Good morning friends ~  I'm playing along with Darnell's Twofer Card Challenge using the prompt "Leaves"


I used a die from Gina Marie Designs that my dear friend Marcia gave me to make a birthday card and a Thanksgiving card.  

It has a wonderful stained glass pattern.  I did some distress ink blending on the background, spritzed it with water and splatted it with ink.  The Give Thanks die is from Impression Obsession and it's cut from shiny gold cardstock.

I went CAS with the next card.  I used a piece of watercolor paper with brushos pigment powders for the background of the leaf and heat embossed the sentiment using copper embossing powder.

You can find all the details of the challenge and join in on the fun here.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Your colors and design details make these simple CAS cards come alive, Birgit! That is a really cool leaf die! It looks fabulous against your pretty blended background with that scalloped frame and it looks lit on fire in your second Brusho design! Love the polka dot kraft, border, and rich copper sediment!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #9! Hugs, Darnell

  2. What a fabulous leaf die, Birgit! And you've made them look totally different on each card. Love the stained glass window with fall colours in the background. And the popped up leaf with the deep red is gorgeous. Two wonderfully designed cards. Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge! xx
