Two-fer Card Challenge: Leaves

It's time again for a Two-fer Challenge: Leaves!

Honestly, what's better than one card for a challenge? 2, of course!
Love playing along with Darnell and the talented crew at the Two-fer blog!

2 cards, 2 different occasions, 1 image used 2 ways.

Concord and 9th's Thankful Leaves dies provided the window for my shaker.
Lindy's Stamp Gang Autumn Mix powders
Thankful Leaves Turnabout: Sentiment (C9)
That's copper embossing powder embossed onto heat resistant acetate.

And my 2nd card is a birthday card.

The 2nd card also used the leaf die from C9, but this time with the veins in place.
Glittered by adding packing tape to the back of the die and pressing glitter onto the top of 
the die. 
The pattern paper was a leftover piece made with C9's Turnabout, with some added
copic coloring. I embossed the tips of the leaves, and the stamped panel with 
copper embossing powder. Also copper embossed the sentiment (PTI's Initial Thoughts)

You have until Sept. 24 to play along, and there's lots on inspiration
from the team.

Have a wonderful week of crafty goodness!


  1. What a lovely pair of cards Nancy! I like the metallics and the wonderful autumn colors!

  2. What a wonderful big leaf Nancy! and two beautiful ways to use it! love the shaker leaf cut out with the pretty green sequins inside - and the lovely purples of the veined leaf!

  3. You have captured the essence of fall glory with these two spectacular designs, Nancy! I'm in awe! I didn't think anyone could top Mother Nature when it comes to leaf coloring, but you did it with your coloring, your pretty shaker, and the glitter and copper enhancements!
