Harvest Time at Twofer Challenge #10.....

Hello dear stamping friends: I have a couple of cards to share with you that I will enter in the TWOFER CARD CHALLENGE #10. Ever since this challenge started back in January of this year, I've been participating on each one of them and having a blast doing it, I even won challenge #4 with THESE 4 CARDS, this is a fun, fun challenge, hope you guys give it a try.
These are my Twofers.


I've been itching to ink up this awesome NBUS set from My Favorite Things called HARVEST MOUSE, I just love this sweet and adorable mice and, for those of you who don't know, I love mice, I  have a bunch of them in my craft room and I love to play with them, (wink, wink!!)
No worries, my friends, they all made of rubber and, in this case, acrylic, LOL!!  I know of one sweet friend that probably was going EEKKK!! as she was reading this post, hahaha!! 
Anywho, here are the individual pictures of these cards and the stuff I used to create them.


This first card was made using the same little mousey but replacing the bushel of blueberries with a pumpkin, this is a GRATEFUL card for the abundance of Nature and for the abundance of friends.
 I stamped the images with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed them, I colored them with SU markers, the pattern paper is from a sadly retired line from Lili of the Valley😢
The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set from the September kit that my dear friend Aileen Ryan from COLOUR AND SPARKLE gifted me with, love the images and I'm working on some cards using this set. I added a few Nuvo drops just because I love them😊

**************************************************************************
This is how the INSIDE of this card looks like.


I used a scrap piece of the pattern paper to adorn the top, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Sassy Succulents" which is totally on sale now, Woo Hoo!!
The little pumpkin is from the same Hero Arts set.

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

This is my Twofer card.


Ok, here's the same little mouse but this time I masked the bushel of Blueberries and substituted it with one of Apples.  The paper is also from Lili of the Valley, the ribbon is from my stash and the wooden piece from Stampin' Up! (retired).
The image is stamped with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed, colored with SU markers.

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


The border is stamped with a retired SU set called "Bordering Blooms", the sentiment is from the "Harvest Mouse" set, making this card a LOVE YOU card.

A Little Reminder.....



Hello everyone: It's time for a little reminder for THE FLOWER CHALLENGE "Add Sparkle" Challenge, so here is the card I made to inspire you to come along and play with us.
You can also go and check out the reminder post for even more inspiration from my teammates' amazing cards, I hope to see you in the gallery.


This card is made with a Power Poppy set called Orchids Rock which has two amazing images and a bunch of inspiring sentiments.  I picked the image of the Lady Slipper for my card, I just love the look of these beautiful flowers.
I stamped this image on a die cut piece of watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed it then I colored it with SU markers and an aqua painter. The pattern papers are from a retired line from Lili of the Valley, the gold glitter paper and the ribbon are from my stash.
Most of you know how hard it is to photograph Wink of Stella so here is a closeup of the image where you might be able to see the lovely shimmer.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The Sentiment and the little Orchid on the bottom corner are from the same set, the border is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Details", I love this beautiful, lacy images. 

So I hope you stop by THE FLOWER CHALLENGE reminder post for more awesome inspiration from my teammates.
