The First Ever 'Twofer Card Challenge #1


I'm excited to be playing along at the Very First Ever 'Twofer Card Challenge', 
which just happens to be the brainchild of Darnell Krauss of djkardcreations.com.


Our challenge is to create 2 cards using one stamp, with a 'feather' theme.

Here's my 'twofer'


With the feathers and sentiment from Clearly Besotted: Fancy Feathers,
my 1st card could be for a special announcement.
My pink inks are the closest to happy brights as I could get, with
Tim Holtz' Distress Oxides: Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry,
Abandoned Coral & Candied Apple.
PTI Cardstock, Tag Sale #8 & Vellum.

Card 2
Same feathers from the Fancy Feathers set, this time a sympathy card.
White embossed and watercolored 
Banner: PTI's Stemmed Statements
Cardstock: PTI
Watercolor paper:Arches Coldpress


2 cards, same stampset. Brilliant challenge!
Check out this new card challenge, and all the inspiration from
the fabulous designers here:


and don't forget to play along. The winner gets to be a guest on a future 'twofer'.
Happy Crafting!

  2. My word those are gorgeous feathers! LOVE the 'tickled pink' card, with its pretty glittery frame and the fun spatters and sequins. Your blue and purple watercolored card makes a gentle sympathy card, which will offer comfort to the recipient. Two great designs! Thanks so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev

  11. These are both divine and different designs, Nancy! I love the sharp crispness of your candy apple and raspberry tickled pink card and the soft and dreamy - yet colorful - sympathy card! Very well done! Thank you so much for the shoutout and for playing, my friend! I appreciate your enthusiasm!! Hugs, Darnell

  13. I was amazed when I saw these on instagram, but only now had the chance to come over to tell you how beautiful they both are! Your color combinations really draw my eye, but the spattering of gold and pink on your tickled pink card, and the wash of color on your sympathy card bring out the wow factor! Thanks for joining in on the fun over at Twofer Card Challenge, Nancy!

  15. Fab cards. You have really taken the fun of pink on one card and the peace and solemnity of the blue on the sympathy card to fabulous designs.
