Two for One Tuesday - Word Play

On Tuesdays, I share two projects that are linked in some way... stamp set, design, colours, etc.

Today I'm sharing two cards that look very different, but they are connected in several ways. They both use Word Play for the sentiment, they both use the Designer Label punch, and both have a similar design. This first card is one we'll be making it in my Technique Class this month - let me know if you'd like to come and join us. It uses the Faux Tile or Grid technique and French Foliage stamp set.

On the second card, I used a much different colour pallette. I used several shades of blue and just a bit of Very Vanilla. I used my Big Shot to cut the cupcake, and added some Basic Rhinestones and Smooch Topcoat for some bling.

Love both cards. It's amazing how using the same tools that the cards could look so different. I particularly like the faux tile technique. Must give that a try.

Hi Liz! I absolutely LOVE that both your cards are so stunning, yet so very different in style and mood! Way to go!
