Twofer Challenge #2 - Hearts!!

This month's Twofer Card Challenge includes my favorite icon - the heart!! For the challenge you create two cards, each for a different occasion using the same stamp or die. The cards should also differ in design.


Busy week for me but I finally had a chance to play along this morning. I need a bunch of thank you cards for birthday gifts so I started there some using Valentine papers & heart dies. Then I used one of the heart dies to create a flower for a friendship card.

Supplies: Paper - Poptone, Stampin' Up, BoBunny, Paper Studio, Pebbles
Dies - Hero Arts DI334 Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies, Spring Branch (retired),  
My Favorite Things Blueprints 20 (retired); Poppystamps Spectacular Thank You
Stamps - Hero Arts January 2018 My Monthly Hero (sentiment on left)
Other - Nuvo drops

Just loved this challenge - I had such fun creating with hearts!! Thanks to Darnell for offering the Twofer Card Challenge and thanks to you for stopping by!

That's such a fabulous background for that delicate and oh so lovely blue heart bloom, Linda ... and what a delicious colour combo on your second card ... crisp, fresh and so very pretty! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

Two beautiful and very different cards! I love the flower petals created out of the hearts, and the background is gorgeous! Your thank you note filled with music notes is such a cheerful, happy card! Thanks for joining in on the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

First of all, Linda, if you need thank you cards for birthday gifts, then let me wish you a Belated Happy Birthday!!

Your two designs are sensational! Whoever receives this thank you card will know your thanks is truly heartfelt!!! And the little flower for the birthday card is perfect against that stunning background!! I had to squint to make out that the petals were made from hearts! Well done ~ I love the colors on both! Thank you so much for playing along in Twofer Card Challenge #2!! Hugs, Darnell
