It's a Two-fer

Yep, I'm combining challenges on this post. I made two separate cards with the same fabulous set (mentioned first here earlier today) and so I wanted to share the versatility of it with this post!

BUT FIRST, here are the fabulous challenges I will be submitting my creations to!

1) Just Us Girls~Ghosting Technique

2)Less is More~One Layer Leaves

Both challenges are just PERFECT for making creations with my new favorite stamp set!!!

So, without further ado, here is card #1 for JUGS (I call it Ghostly Cornucopia)~

And some details for ya~

Yeah, so I'm relatively new to baker's twine, but I have to say that I AM IN LOVE with it! So versatile and it's the perfect addition to literally any project. FAB!

Now onto card #2 for Less is More (Mustard Thoughts)~

And some details~

I created the shadowing on these images by using my Versamark pen (fine point side) and I LOVE the effect! It makes those acorns and leaves look so life-like! I decided to use a More Mustard card base because it looked so very autumnal! :)

Thanks for stopping by--glad you came on over! Hope you have fun with your next paper craft--hopefully to submit to either JUGS or LIM! :) Happy stamping!!!
