Twofer Card Challenge #8

Another month went by and it's time for a new Twofer Challenge! Visiting the gallery last month really made me thirsty! Thanks to all who played along!

This month we would like to see you using geometric shapes. As always you have to use the same die or stamp to make two different cards for two different occasions.




I chose to play with my new (to me) Altenew triangle stamps and dies. I made a birthday card for my younger son who just turned 15! He loved the cool geometric design.

The second card is an encouragement card. I used the same tiny triangle die for the sun that I used for the silver accents on the birthday card. I also used some of the same stamps to make clouds. What do you say? There are no triangle shaped clouds in your neck of the woods? That's strange...





Stamps: Altenew (triangles), PTI (sentiment)
Dies: Altenew (triangles)




Stamps: Altenew (triangles), Hero Arts (sentiment), PSX (swirl in the sun)
Dies: Altenew (triangles)


If you haven't checked out what the amazing Design Team has come up with and our Guest Designers, Cheryl from Paper Panacea and Brenda from Inkspired to Stamp please click here and then get creative and play along! Hope to see you in the gallery!





Be well and keep in touch!

Ein interessantes Thema und Deine Umsetzungen sind Klasse. Die erste Karte ist für mich sogar Männertauglich. Mal schauen, ob der Meisterdieb mir soviel Zeit gibt, das ich auch passende Karten schaffe, denn es reizt mich schon sehr!!

Hahaha, Susanne ... yes, of course we have triangular clouds ... you mean some people don't?? What a fun, bright, happy, sunshiny card ... and a fabulous, unexpected design, really clever! Your son's birthday card is so cool ... graphic and stylish ... love the monochrome with the pop of bold colour! No wonder he loved it! Hugs, Anita :)

What a fantastic geometric card for a 15 year old or any guy. Happy birthday to your son. Cute idea to use triangles for clouds and I love the different designs on them. I don't recall seeing clouds like that here but that doesn't mean they won't pop up!

Two fun twofers, especially with those triangular clouds... you’ve captured their realistic characteristics so well! *lol*😂😉 Wonderful masculine colours on the birthday card... I can see why your son loves it. Your sun / sky scene card is creative and delightful. xx

What a cool monochromatic birthday card for your son, Susanne! (Happy birthday to him!) The encouragement card is bright and cheerful. The triangular clouds look like they’re dancing. I love that you added dimensional interest. Great twofers! Hideko xx

Oh wow--these are just wonderful, Susanne! Your creativity blows me away with these 2 modern, beautiful cards!

What a kick, Susanne! Triangle clouds! The way the weather is acting all over lately, I'm sure we have triangle clouds in our future and everyone will call you prescient! I also love the patterns within the clouds and the sun and the sediment could not be more perfect! It's a truly happy card! Your birthday card is awesome for any age and any gender! I love the every-which-way path you created with the cool purple pyramid in the center!! Hugs, Darnell

Fabulous cards, Susanne! I love the geometric vibe of your son's birthday card - perfect masculine teen card! Your triangle clouds have movement like visual laughter, so cool!

Brenda said...

What cool cards and a great take on the challenge! I love the birthday card, so cool looking and artsy! The sun card just makes me smile and I am loving the triangular clouds-they made me laugh and I'm sad that I don't have any of those clouds in my neck of the woods. lol Hugs, Brenda
