Guest Designing at Twofer

Hi There ~

I was lucky enough to have my Twofer entry for December to win, and then landed a Guest Design spot for this challenge, thanks to Darnell and her team at Twofer Card Challenge.


If you have never played at Twofer the challenge is all about stretching 
your supplies and your creativity.




I usually use stamps, this time I chose to use a die from 
Simon Says Stamp for my two cards.



I wracked my brain to create an alternate use for the star theme, 
but ended up with two traditional star cards.  
I have an encouragement card and a 
birthday card with a zodiac constellation.

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone creates.


Thanks for stopping by.

Congrats on your guest designer spot!

I really like that die and how you cut it up to create the constelllation! Very clever!

Hi Cat! I love that you chose this fabulous die for your 'Stars'...it's so versatile and fun! Great idea to make it the 'star of the show' on your encouragement card and I love the Zodiac constellation on your 2nd card...such a great way to personalize a birthday card!

Congrats on your guest designer spot for this challenge, which really is a challenge (in my book anyway, I always find it a struggle to come up with 2 different designs), you have produced 2 really great cards. I really like the way you have softened the black background in your second card. Very effective xx

Darnell said...

Thank you for being our Guest Designer this month, Cat! I love your Twofers and how you created two different designs using that starry die! The recipient of your encouragement card will definitely feel like a STAR and I'm crazy about how you blended your dark sky in your second design! It looks like velvet and really makes your partial galaxy of stars and your sediment POP!! Hugs, Darnell

Two great cards! I really love the constellation card with that sky. Congrats on being a guest designer. Well deserved in my book!

Wow, that's very clever what you did with your stars! I'm not sure how unconventional one can get with stars, but I'd say you came up with a brilliant idea and I'd never guess the two cards were created with the same die. Congratulations on your guest spot!

These are both spectacular cards, Cat! I love that SSS star die and how it can span across a card, but I love it even more the way you tilted it on an angle! Your constellation is so clever and beautiful in the night sky! Thanks so much for guest designing for the Twofer Card Challenge!

A splendid Twofer, Cat! That starry die is fabulous ... and pops so brilliantly against the rich red on your encouragement card ... such a great sentiment with it! What a brilliant idea to create a constellation ... those tiny bright stars almost twinkle against the soft night sky! It might have been a tough challenge for you, but you aced it with these delicious designs! Thanks so much for inspiring our players as our Guest Designer at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

Jean said...

Both are fantastic! Really like these colors!

Loll said...

What a wonderful star die you've used Cat! Love the red card with the full star die and perfect sentiment. The second card is so creative with using just a small portion of the star die to create a constellation. LOVE it! Excited to see you Guest Designing this month at Twofer! xx

Thanks so much, Cat, for guest designing for us this month at the Twofer Challenge. Your cards are fabulous!! LOVE that bright red base with those sweet white stars. The black one with its constellation is such a fabulous idea! That's a great font on the sentiment, too. Delightful cards!! Bev

Congrats on your guest designer spot. Woohoo! It's always nice to be showcased, so others can see your work. Loving the stars!

Greta said...

Congrats on being the GD, Cat! Both cards are fun ways to use the star dies!

I just posted my cards to the Twofer and find I used the same die! I had only seen the Stars prompt on Darnell's blog. Your cards are so pretty, especially the zodiac card. That is so clever. Congratulations on being a guest designer.
