where you are required to use the same stamp or die on two different cards for two different ocassions.
Now I wasn't going to enter cos I was so sure I didn't have a feather stamp or die in my stash but during the course of my massive clear out/up of my Craft room I came across a NBUS feather stamp which had been a freebie in The Craft Stamper magazine yrs ago lurking in the bottom of a box.
Ok. So now I had the stamp but no idea of how to use it on one card let alone two! I left it on my desk for several days/weeks until an inkling for the first card emerged and then very quickly followed by a second idea which I discounted as being too off the wall but like all ideas once the seed/feather had been sown it just couldn't let go.
Here is card No1. A Notelet.
The sentiment pretty much says what the card occasion is for anyway. During my rummage in my craft room I came across a set of patterned card blanks which I have put to use here as the background sort of looks vaguely feathery. The sentiment is a stamp by Tonic (another NBUS) which comes in a set of six. I drew the ink pot freehand onto black cut stock and fussy cut then edged in gold gel pen to match for border on the card.
Card No2 Humourous.
It just wouldn't go away so in the end I went with the
feather/flow. Hope you get my sense of humour. (The card sort of follows on from the purpose the feather was used for on the first card.) I used a digi image by Digi Stamps 4Joy called 'Whoose looking at you' which I resized to fit my card base. The sentiment I printed off in word and used my SU Extra-large curly label punch.
The two together as required for the challenge.
