Two Wreaths for Twofer Challenge #11.....

Hello everyone: Well, I'm coming in a bit late but still with 3 days to go to share my cards at the TWOFER CHALLENGE #11, this time, the theme is WREATHS, so we need to create two different cards for two different occasions using the same stamp, die or stencil.
Here are my Twofer Cards, first together and then, I'll share a picture of them, explaining how I created them.


***********************************************************


For this wreath I used this very old W Plus 9 stamp and die set called Woodland Wreaths, it has a coordinating die that you can find HERE, I heat embossed this wreath in gold.  The Jingle Bells I think are from Memory Box, but I'm not to sure about that, they are also very old.

************************************************************

This is how the INSIDE of this card looks like.


The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Poinsettia" and the flower from "Merry Littles".

***********************************************************


For my Twofer card I created a baby wreath, I saw this awesome baby wreaths for baby showers where people put all of the baby stuff on them, they look super cute so I decided to create one.
The wreath is heat embossed with SU Crushed Curry embossing powder and all of the baby items are from a 2010-2011 SU set called "Baby Bundle", they were the perfect size for this wreath.  
I stamped them, colored them and then, fussy cut them, cute eh?
The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Baby Love".

***********************************************************

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


Both the sentiment and the baby rattle are from the "Baby Love" set.

So there you have them, my twofer cards for the awesome Twofer Challenge #11 "WREATHS"

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

These are going to be very well received by the lucky recipients, Maria! Your festive jingle bell wreath on musical paper is a delight and the tag and bow wrap it up beautifully! Your baby card wreath could not be more adorable with everything baby added to the wreath! Again, lovely use of pp and I love the sweet rows of ribbon! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #11! Hugs, Darnell

Adorable cards, Maria! Sure wish the holiday card had a hand colored image, though. It's one of our challenge requirements at Aurora Wings as stated in the rules. Although its just gorgeous, I'm afraid I'll have to remove it in fairness to all. I'm so sorry. Hope you understand. xxD

So clever to create these beautiful wreaths!

Donna, this was my fault for not paying attention to the Aurora Wings rules.
I apologize and totally understand you removing my card from the gallery.
I'll make another card to participate in this challenge soon.

What a jolly wreath with all the shiny bells and the pretty bow! Love the background paper! And how fun and unique to create a baby wreath! So sweet!
Thank you so much for joining us at the Twofer!

You've once again come up with the most clever ideas for this challenge! I love the jingle bells all cut from the colorful, shiny paper, and then turn around and make a baby wreath! Those little images are adorable and what a fun idea! I have some of that very same ribbon I've been saving for a baby card, but the design has never been quite right for it. I need to start designing around the ribbon so I can use some of my hoard. Happy Thanksgiving, Maria!

I love those baubles on the wreath - the colours are so rich and I especially like that music paper you've used in the background. Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.
