Twofer Challenge #3

We've got another great challenge for you this month at the Twofer Challenge. It's rather fun and very appropriate for those of us anticipating Spring. This month's prompt is:


Oh so many things come to mind with this! Click the link to pop over there, and check out the amazing cards by the rest of the Design Team!


I'm soooo looking forward to the early Springtime blossoms in my flowerbeds. Until they start peeking through the ground, these will have to do! 


This card uses a green base with an MFT die cut frame, first stamped with a Brutus Monroe coverplate flower stamp, then colored with Copics. I added some fun sequins, and a Spring-like sentiment from MFT. To me, this is a very "happy" card!


Using the same BM stamp, only this time with ME Smoke Ink, I covered the whole front of the card. Then I grabbed that fun MFT die, and knocked out a panel, which I colored in soft blues and greens and popped back into place. The sentiment is from Gina K., and I placed it on a popped up scrap of SU Parisian Breeze cardstock.

I wonder where "blossoms" will take you all this month?! Looking forward to seeing what you've made! See you over at the Twofer Challenge. As always...

So wonderfully whimsical and so very pretty, Bev ... both of them! The bright colours and those delicious sequin flowers are so celebratory ... perfect for a spring time birthday! What a calm and lovely way to send get well wishes ... love how you softly coloured the blossoms inside the frame while leaving the outer ones as line art ... dreamy and delightful! Miss you, my friend! Big hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Your colorful frame and the sweet little flowers with sequins in the center makes me happy, too! Love how you colored just the inside of the frame in your get well card! I'll have to remember those ideas, thanks for the inspiration!
Hugs, Susanne

What a beautiful floral design and I love it as a colorful frame. And, using it for a spotlight card was gorgeous too!

Nora N. said...

I like how you created that colorful frame and used it over the green. The three flower embellishments draws the eye to the sentiment. The second card is with a technique I say I am going to try and never do. It is oh so lovely!! You rocked this challenge!!

A tremendous Twofer for blossoms, Bevie! That is such a pretty, happy, springtime stamp and it works so well both ways! Those blossom sequints are divine and that bold sediment reminds me that TIME OUT is still having their BOLD challenge! And I love the spotlight stamping on your second design in the soft colors. It is bound to make the recipient feel tons better!! Hugs, Darnell xxoo

This is such a fabulous challenge idea, love, love seeing two cards made with the same goodies and just how different they can look!

Loll said...

Your first card shouts "SPRING", Bev! It's so pretty with the flowery frame and gorgeous green card base. What a lovely birthday card!

And your second card is very creative and artsy. Love the images in the smoky gray colour. Die-cutting the center panel, colouring and popping it up adds so many design techniques and elements. Love it!! xx

Okay...I really need to play along this month. I made two cards last month and never posted them! You know how much I love your florals. They are fabulous!

This challenge is bringing out the very best of you, Bev ... beautifully!
I particularly love the second card - have that little die, and it is perfect for this technique of coloring! Now you know I'm not much of a blue fan - but these shades, with Spring-like green? beautimous!
Now about that BM stamp...

Bobby said...

Your green card really screams Spring with its brightly colored flower frame, Bev. The spotlight coloring on the other card is so soft and pretty - perfect for a get well card. Great twofer job. I love them both. Now I have to go look through my blossoms.

Kelly Griglione said...

Hi Bev! Oh, love how you used that stamp as a frame and as a background! Two great looks on two beautiful cards. I’m looking forward to spring too ... my oldest has his first baseball game this coming weekend! Then it will be official for sure. Hugs, kelly

Kara Lynne said...

I love that you cut a frame out of a background stamp. I don't know that I would think to do that, and it's wonderful! Your birthday card is definitely spring-time fresh! Your soft greens and aquas really change up the look of the stamp and create a soothing feeling which is perfect for your get well card. Two wonderful cards, Bev!

Julia Aston said...

What clever and different designs you created with your stem stampings - the frame and overall stamped background are both lovely!

Izzy Scrap said...

Fabulous, Bev ! I'm also waiting for the Spring to come, we had lately two sunny days and suddenly the daffodils bloomed ! Love the whimsical spring spirit on your first card with all these little coloured flowers over this soft green background ! Even the calligraphy of the sentiment has a spring spirit ! Superb !
Your second card is also beautiful with this soft grey stamping all over the panel and just these little touches of colours within the little frame. Love the sentiment strip with the same colour as the flowers. Your rock ! Thanks for the great inspiration. x

Patti said...

I love looking at your happy cards Bev. You have a way of taking paper and ink and demonstrating the joy of the Lord! I know who ever receives your cards is as blessed as those of us who get to see them here!!

BIG (((Hugs)))

Wow, Bev, this is two completely different looks with one stamp. I love the idea of the frame and it is so bright and cheerful. The get well card is a lovely use of the stamp too. I like how you colored the flowers inside the frame.

Desperatehousewife Craft said...

Two wonderful cards! Thanks for the inspiration!

Craftychris said...

Both of these are so gorgeous and look so totally different! Love the bright boldness of the first one and the muted subtlety of the second. Beautiful flowers! xxx

TK said...

Great cards, Bev -- I love how you downplayed the bright colors on the first, yet added a subtle pop of soft colors on the second! Awesome...
