But you're here to see my Twofer Challenge cards, aren't you? Well, I won't keep you any longer!
For some reason, I immediately thought of this older, and somewhat obscure Penny Black die set that I have when I saw this prompt. My brain wouldn't let go, and as hard as I tried to use something else, brain said, "Umm...excuse me, but there's no way anything you try will turn out decently. I'm in charge here and you will use those PB birds. Period." Understood. You only have to use that 2x4 upside my head once. Brain was right:
That baby card is really sweet irl, but in the photo it looks a bit flat, or something. The letters are from a Pebbles die cut set from my scrapbooking days, and they fit so nicely on a card. Not sure of the patterned paper, but I like it (naturally I like it...it's polka dotted,lol!!). And there's that PB bird, layered several times and winked up with some sparkly Stella. Our Pastor and his wife are expecting their first baby this Spring, so I'm all set with a card!
The second card is a birthday card. Boy, girl, adult, child; I think it works for just about anyone. The 'celebrate' is from a Studio Calico set, as is the teensy party hat. Lots of those PB birds (see, brain, I can follow directions, hahaha) in rainbow colors. All scraps, yay! And there you go. I hope you will pull out your bird stamps, dies, or stencils and join us in the gallery. Two cards, two different designs using the same stamps, dies, or stencils. If you haven't, do stop over at the Twofer Challenge and see what my teamies have created. Be sure to welcome our newest DT member, Leslie, and have a gander at our two GD's, Izzy and Sonja's cards! I promise you'll be delighted. And as always...
