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.

Shock Top Cheers!!!!!

SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: There is a new challenge over at SHOPPING OUR STASH and this time we want to see cards that are inspired by a food or beverage label so you can take your inspiration from the colors, the images, the food or beverage itself, etc. 
So here is my card that was created using one of the labels of these delicious beers.



Isn't this illustration just super cool?  I love the colors, the image and all the awesome details of it, like the hair made of wheat straws and the face made with an orange segment and those sunglasses, WOW!! But anyway, since I don't have a beer mug stamp, I decided to sketch this mug from one of ours, LOL!!  The other time I made a card with a beer mug in it was THIS ONE in which I traced the mug on a SU catalog. 
The pattern paper is from my stash, the sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Happy Hour" from the 2012-2013 catalog.
This card is for one of my hubby's friends from work who's celebrating his 63rd. Birthday next week.
I'm sure he'll get a kick out of this card, tee hee!!

Here is a peek at the collection where this label came from.

A simple sentiment from Hero Arts for the inside, guys don't like to much fuss.

So I hope you come and play along with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we can't wait to see what you create.

Hello everyone:  The new RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE is a celebration of our 100th. Challenge and for that, we have our first ever BLOG HOP, with prizes for everyone who leaves a comment on the Designer Team's blogs.  Each one of us has a prize which is a brand new but older than a year stamp plus a little something extra so, we all hope you come along and play.

These balloons were cut out of glitter paper with the retired SU die set called "Balloon Pop Up", the confetti embossing folder is also from SU and the cupcakes are from a Penny Black 2013 stamp set called "Cupcakes", colored them with Prismacolor pencils and glitter pens. 
The sentiment is from a retired 2010-2011 SU set called "Curly Cute".
