Twofer Card Challenge #1

Hello and Welcome!
Feel free to interpret the prompt however it inspires you,
but remember to use the same feather stamp or die on both cards!
And, yes, your feathers may be attached to birds 
or dreamcatchers or ...?

Twofer Card Challenge Rules:
  • Make two different card designs for two different occasions using the same stamps and/or dies.
  • This is a card-only challenge, but any style is welcome.
  • Follow the monthly prompt and follow this blog.
  • To help the DT visit you, link only ONE photo showing both cards.
  • Link to this challenge in your blog post. No backlinks, which means your post date and time must be after the challenge date.
  • Leave an encouraging comment below for the Design Team.
  • Leave encouraging comments on three (3) other gallery entries.
  • You may enter up to three (3) times.
  • You may enter five (5) additional challenges.
      The goal is to stretch your creativity as well as your stamps and dies by making two distinctly different designs using the same prompt stamp or die! 

      In order to stretch your design skills, try a different style with your second card! In order to stretch your schtuff, try using the prompt stamp or die in an unexpected way on your second card!

      Please read the very specific information about design layout and using stamp-and-die pairings, negative/positive dies, other stamp sets, etc. under the tab "FAQ" (frequently asked questions) above. The use of NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) is encouraged, but not a requirement.

      We hope you will be inspired by the example creations from your Design Team! 




      I'm delighted to have Carol Mayne as our Social Media Coordinator! You can follow us on Facebook and on Instagram.  In addition to linking below, if you post your cards to the Twofer Card Challenge pages on Instagram and Facebook, please use #twofercardchallenge so Carol can find you!

      The challenge is open until 10:00 AM (PST) January 24th.
      Winner and Honorable Mentions will be posted at 10:00 AM (PST) January 30th.

      The Winner will have the opportunity to be a future Guest Designer!
