Two Cards to Share

 Hello friends.  I have two cards to share with you today.  I made the first one for The Flower Challenge - Shades of Purple.


I used my new Altenew Sweet Flowers set to stamp and die cut the image.  I colored the flowers with SU Highland Heather Blends and the stems with Old Olive Blends.  I used dark Highland Heather and flicked it against the lid to get the speckles on the white panel.  I mounted the flowers with foam tape.  The sentiment is from SU Magnolia Blooms stamped in Highland Heather and die cut with a stitched oval.  I mounted this with foam tape also.
I really like this stamp set and like coloring it so I made another card with it and cut the flowers apart after coloring them. I used the largest Stitched with Whimsey die to emboss the front of the pink card base (the die doesn't cut, it just embosses).  The sentiment is from Good Morning Magnolia set stamped on a die cut from the Floating & Fluttering Butterfly set.  I mounted the flowers and sentiment with foam tape.
I made both cards to share at The Twofer Card Challenge - Your Choice ( of course my choice was flowers).

And since this is my first time using this set I will link to the NBUS challenge #24.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit and if you take time to leave a comment, thank you.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,


  1. Two absolutely BEAUTIFUL cards JoAnn!! I am in such a Spring mode right now, so your flowers totally made me smile this morning!! And great way to get two different looks by cutting the flower layout apart and using different colors! Thanks so much for sharing both these beauties with us at The Twofer Challenge!! :0)

  2. JoAnn, these are two gorgeous cards. Love both of them.

  3. These are GORGEOUS! I am partial to the pink one, but they are both beautiful! TFS!

  4. It's always better to make two while the supplies are out, right? lol
    JoAnn, I've had my eye on those sweet Altenew blooms for some time now... love your purples! Thanks so much for sending them over to The Flower Challenge! btw they are equally sweet in pink!

  5. Beautiful flowers, JoAnn! Love the purple stems so beautifully colored with splatters! The pink flowers are just as beautiful and I love how you've cut them apart to frame the sentiment! Thanks for sharing with us at The Twofer Challenge!

  6. I love how you have showcased that new stamp with your two different designs, JoAnn! The image really does lend itself to be cut and arranged into different beautiful layouts. Your coloring is perfect, too! Thank you for playing in TCC #36 and for sharing with everyone at NBUS! I hope you are keeping well! Hugs, Darnell

  7. Both cards are lovely but my favorite is the one done in H. Heather.

  8. You have created fabulous flowers Twofer, JoAnn. This motive allows a lot of various designs by just cut it. Flowers are perfectly colored. The colors you used makes perfect spring feeling. Thank you for joining us at TCC #36. Hugs, Sonja

  9. This flower stamp is so pretty and you have done an outstanding job with the coloring and the different layouts. These cards are beautiful.
