Twofer Card Challenge - Trees

I love entering the Twofer Card challenges.  They really make me stretch my creative thinking.  This round, I used the same stamp in very different ways. 

First up, the image is heat embossed in white glitter on navy pearl and paired with an elegant Merry Christmas:
CAS, but still has enough depth and texture to keep things interesting.

This is my third attempt at a spotlight card:
I have needed WAY too many sympathy cards recently.  Love how the lone tree in the center reflects how alone we feel in grief (no matter how many people are there to love and support), yet there are others nearby in love.

SU! Lovely Trees.  First sentiment from Creative Station, second from Gina Marie.  The latest Words 2 Craft By challenge runs from June 13 through July 4.  Come play along with us!!


  1. This Lovely as a Tree stamp is so versatile and your cards show that so well. The Christmas card is lovely and I love that spotlight card. I've never done one but yours is inspiring. Great job with it. Black and white are always beautiful.

  2. I was just telling Marcia how this was my very first stamp and how much I love it, Bobbi. In all these years, I don't remember ever white heat-embossing over a dark background for a Christmas card! Thank you for the inspiration! It is such a magnificent image that way, especially when you use glitter e/p on a pearly navy!

    I've also never created a spotlight design with it, which I also love. (This challenge really fills my to-CASE folder!) I love your thinking behind this design for a sympathy card. Very poignant and meaningful.

    Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #6! Hugs, Darnell (ps If you still have both your cards, could you delete your entry and replace it with one showing both cards to make it easier for the DT at the end of the challenge? If you don't have them, I hope you'll make a mental note for next time because we love having you join in! Mwah!)

  3. This is a fun challenge and it does stretch out minds doesn't it?! I love what you have done with this tree stamp, both cards are amazing. I love the crisp CAS of your first card, so stunning. Your second card really does work well as a sympathy card, I love how you explained that lone tree in the center, so true! Well done in using this stamp in two totally different ways. Sorry you have a need of so many sympathy card, just needed one myself. Hugs, Brenda

  4. Hi Bobbi, Saw your lovely cards in the Twofer gallery and just had to stop by and say hi. Love that white embossing on the dark background, as well as your spotlighted sympathy card. Well done, my friend!

  5. These cards are really effective, simple and elegant. Don't you just love trees? xx
