Twofer Card Challenge #9 - September 2018 - Leaves

Hi there,
I made two more cards for the Twofer Card Challenge this month. I was lucky to have two different sized Hibiscus stamps in my individual stamp sets for my first card, which I love the colours of all the different greens and the yellow and red flowers.  The background was sponged through some plastering drywall tape, great stuff, tacky on the back so it gently sticks and stays in place until you finish sponging. The second card is fashioned on a Monstera plant on a Trellis with a Vertical Sentiment.  I stamped the leaves with Versamark and Gold embossed them.

  1. I love your cards you made with the leafy branch. Both are so well designed and gorgeous!

  2. Two beautiful leaf cards Sue! Love the hibiscus with the bright yellow flower ad bright green leaves. The soft stenciling in the background adds a special touch to the design.

    Your trellis of bright green and gold large leaves is really striking. The white-on-white of the trellis die-cut over the card base is subtle but adds some texture and dimension. And those leaves just flow down the trellis beautifully. Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge! xx

  3. Beautiful twofer cards! I love how you took this challenge and made to very different cards from those leaves. Hugs, Brenda

  4. The sunny hibiscus flower surrounded by the different leaves look fun and tropical! Also adore the fresh look of the white trellis with the monstera plant! Beautiful designs, Sue!
    Great to see you in the Twofer gallery!

  5. Thank you for making two more cards (Threefer and Fourfer!) to show just how we can stretch our design skills! Both of these are crisp and clean and stunning, Sue, outside and inside! Thanks for the tip on a cool way to use drywall tape as a stencil!! Hugs, Darnell

  6. Two beautiful cards here Susan! so different each one but love them both of course. Love the hibiscus flower and how you coloured it also. Thanks for sharing with us over at 'The Flower Challenge';) Viv DT xx

  7. Wow your so good at decorating the inside of your cards, something I never think about. The hibiscus stamp is stunning and so are the colours you used. And the die-cut leaves behind it give it such texture and dimension. Its a gorgeous card and I'm so glad you shared it with us at The Flower Challenge!!
