Twofer Card Challenge #5

Yay! It's time for a new Twofer Challenge! I loved seeing all your adorable pet cards in the gallery. This month we are wondering what you can do with your butterfly stamps or dies.









Stamps: PTI (sentiment), flowers unknown
Dies: PTI (butterfly)




Dies: PTI (butterfly), Gina Marie (stitched oval), My Favorite Things (scalloped rectangle)

The vellum was actually part of the packaging of fancy chocolates or something. Loved the textured pattern on it. Here i a close up so you can see it better:







Remember to use the same butterfly stamp or die to make two different cards for two different occasions. Then upload a picture featuring both cards in the same photo. Find more details and all the rules over at the Twofer Card Challenge blog. Can't wait to be blown away by all your creations!

I am going to enter the first card in the

Time Out Challenge #109
ETA: It won Honors, yay!





Be well and keep in touch!

Gorgeous, Susanne ... both of them! I recognise that first one (thank you once again!) ... the background embossing is simply beautiful with those bright, vibrant blooms and delicate ribbon ... close up in my hands it's even more lovely than on screen! Your single, showcase butterfly is so elegant ... puts me in mind of a stylish summer cocktail dress with the soft, shimmery colours, textured vellum and those lustrous pearls ... wonderful! Hugs, Anita :)

Brenda said...

Both of your cards are just beautiful Susanne! I love the embossing using the die and I love the butterfly on your second card, so soft and beautiful. Hugs, Brenda

At first I was looking for the second butterfly...then I saw the beautifully dry embossed background! Both cards are gorgeous!

Your butterfly twofers are so pretty. Fabulous job upcycling the textured vellum. Looks so cool! Love embossing with dies and you created a wonderful embossed butterfly background with that technique. x

Both of your cards are gorgeous, beautiful and stunning! x

Gorgeous cards, Susanne! Your dry embossing looks amazing with the cheerful flowers and spring green elements! I love the texture of your gorgeous up-cycled vellum, and the beautiful blend of colors that lie underneath! Such wonderful inspiration!

Two beautiful butterfly cards Susanne!! Love the debossed butterfly design for the background of your first card. Very creative way to use this die-cut and really adds a special touch to your sweet spring flowers. LOVE the colours of orange, yellow and bright green. Such a happy card. And great design element with the sentiment strip along the side of the card.

Your second card is so pretty with the pink and purple design. Your layered butterfly is gorgeous with that vellum printed later. Great upcycling!! xx

Darnell said...

Gorgeous, Susanne! I never think to emboss with my dies so thank you for the reminder! Your butterfly looks so perfect as added dimention to your pretty floral bouquet! And, oh my, doesn't she look stunning with that fancy textured vellum over top the pretty blended inks?! I love the purple and pink color palette of your matting!! Hugs, Darnell

It's so clever to use use the butterfly die for impression for the first card, Susanne! Love the textured vellum (a great way of recyling the packaging paper!). With the ombre backing and the pearls, the butterly (of the second card) looks so elegant and beautiful! Great twofers!! Hideko xx

Well how creative is the way you used the butterfly on the first card? I had to look at the close up to see!! The second card with the soft colors and the vellum is amazing!! BEAUTIFUL take on the challenge!

Brenda in IN said...

Oh my, I love the sentiment on the left side of the card. That gives it a classic look and the embossing is perfect with the flowers. That is so clever how you did the embossing. The purple card is just stunning with the variegated colors behind the vellum.

Liebe Susanne... jetzt habe ich doch glatt fast deinen Beitrag verpennt. Dabei finde ich die Technik mit Dies zu prägen sehr bemerkenswert und schön. Stretch your dies... echt toll!
Außerdem bin ich sehr beruhigt zu hören, das noch mehr Menschen schöne Papiere, egal welchen Ursprungs, aufheben *lach*
Das gibt dem Schmetterling echt den perfekten letzten Schliff, wunderschön!
Ganz lieben Gruß über den großen Teich
Katrin

Ein toller Effekt, die Stanzschablone als Prägeschablone zu benutzen, schaut großartig aus!!!

What a gorgeous Twofer. I love how you've used the die to create the background, and what a fab bit of recycling using the vellum paper ..... looks so pretty and delicate xx

Verna Angerhofer said...

Wow! Gorgeous embossed butterflies on your panel. That is a fantastic card design. And, I love how you used the chocolate wrapper vellum as well on your second card. It is such a lovely delicate design. Both cards are wonderful!

Greta said...

Great embossing with the die & oh wow--that butterfly is stunning! Wonderful cards, Susanne!

Pat said...

Really pretty twofers Susanne and love that embossed butterfly die background with the lovely watercoloured flowers, and then the bold mix of colours and layering on the second topped with that wonderfully coloured butterfly which brings all the colours together with a splash of turquoise which pops beautifully. x

Gerrina said...

Great how you used the butterfly to embos the background; fits so good!And your flowers are coloured beuatifully! Thank you for joining us at TIME OUT!

Joyce said...

Stunning cards, both of them. And, so very different--what a creative mind at work. I have to say that my fave of the two is the beauty you entered at Time Out. Really love the embossed background. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

Anita in France said...

You already know how gorgeous I think your embossed floral card is, Susanne (or rather my embossed, floral card!!) ... I'm delighted to see it in our gallery at Time Out ... thanks so much for playing along with us! Hugs, Anita :)

Two eye-catching cards, Susanne ! I'm totally in love with your embossed butterfly card. So delicate and stylish. You were the one who inspired me and I tried to make an embossed butterfly on my card too. But I was not happy with it so I finally changed my mind. I love the beautiful background it makes for your lovely and fresh flowers. And your second card is so elegant with your Vellum butterfly (so clever to use Vellum from recycling !). It blended background is just stunning ! Another fabulous twofer. Thanks so much for sharing and for inspiring, and sorry for being so late in my comment !

Jacquie Southas said...

Oh, dear, now I'm going to be buying up chocolates looking for that wonderful patterned vellum! Both cards are stunners, Susanne!

Gwendolyn said...

First of all, thanks you so much for your encouraging comment on my blog. As for your cards, they amazingly gorgeous! I love your idea of using dies as an embossed background, I'm always so afraid of cutting through the card. And using vellum as a top layer on your 2nd card is just brilliant, I might just copy this idea if its ok with you. Thanks so much for the wonderful inspirations! Hugs, Gwendolyn

Robyn Oliver said...

OH WOW Susanne, two fabulous cards, great use of your die to make the background on the first and then a lovely two layer pretty butterfly on a mauve card

sandie said...

Congrats for getting honours at Time Out

Einfach klasse wie du deinen Schmetterling verwendet hast! Als geprägter Hintergrund sieht er echt fantastisch aus aber auch Solo, aus dem wunderschönen Pergamentpapier gestanzt, macht er eine tolle Figur! - wunderschön dieser Glanz auf seinen Flügeln!

What a gorgeous pair of card Susanne - so creative and pretty.
