Twofer Challenge #3

I am entering my two cards today into the 'Twofer Card Challenge #3'
created by Darnell of DjKardkreations 
All the details for this challenge can be found HERE

As you can see from the logo, the aim is to make two different cards for two 
different occasions, using the same stamps and/or dies.
The theme for this month is 'BLOSSOMS'

My first card is Lots of Love
 I have randomly stamped the agapanthus stamp
using Perfect Medium over a piece of black card, then added the Perfect Pearls
and brushed over each bloom very gently.
Next I added a banner for the sentiment and some sequins.

The products I have used are:-
Stampendous Woodblock Stamp - Agapanthus Bloom
Ranger Perfect Pearls
Banner Die - Purchased from eBay
Challenges entered:-
Aud Sentiments - Bingo + A Sentiment (3D item/Stamp/Markers)
Craftaholics R Us - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Cards in Envy No Patterned Paper

My second card - Thank You
I embossed the base card with the Tied Together
 folder. I then stamped one blossom, added some colour with Promarkers,
then cut out using the circle dies. 

The products I have used are:-
Stampendous Woodblock Stamp - Agapanthus Bloom
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles
Stampin' Up - Word Window Punch

Challenges entered:-
DL.ART - Flowers/Thank You Card

  3. Hi Janice both of your cards are stunning I do love that stamp. Have a great weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. Two lovely cards here Janice! I can just imagine how shimmery the card with the perfect pearls is in real life. So pretty on dark colored card stock like that! The flower really pops on the second card too!

  5. I never think to use dark cardstock like this! The black base really highlights the shimmery goodness of the perfect pearls. Really lovely card. And your second card, with its embossed base and single blossom looks amazing. Thank you for playing along at The Twofer Challenge. Bev

  9. They are two lovely and very different cards Janice. What a lovely stamp that is. I've not used the technique on your first card for such a long time then strangely did it at a workshop this morning. I shall be getting my perfect pearls out again to do some more. Barbxx

  10. Oh, well done, Janice! Bring back Perfect Pearls! I forget I even have mine, but you sure inspire me to find them! I love the shimmer and think the agapanthus looks amazing against the black on your Love card! It also looks amazing IN black on your pretty pink Thank You card with the fabulous embossing! Thank you so much for playing along at Twofer Card Challenge #3! Hugs, Darnell

  11. These are both so pretty and so different from one another, you did a great job on this challenge, the perfect pearls on the black background looks great!

  12. A wonderful blossom stamp you used for your cards. The first one is so very lovely using the blossom against the black background with the Perfect Pearls. And, the other one is so gorgeous as the focal image of your card. Awesome colors on both. Thanks for joining the Twofer Challenge #3.
