Twofer - Pets

The Twofer Challenge this month is 'Pets', making two completely different card designs for two different occasions, using the same stamp or die.


The die I used on both cards is Frantic Stamper 'Love Cats'. 



For my first card I used a Presscut 'Centre Stepper Card' die to make the base card.  The embossing was done with an Xcut 'Small Polka Hearts'  e/f.   The cats are on a Tonic 'Mixed Edge Diamond' die cut, which is attached to the card with foam tape.  I added some tiny hearts which were the waste from a MB 'Heart of Hearts' die cut.  The sentiment is layered on a strip of red card and attached with foam pads.  Two brads finished off my card........and I now have two less brads in my brad mountain!!

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:


For my second card, the cats are layered on MB 'Stitched Ovals'.  The patterned background paper is by Anna Marie Designs.  I had intended to make the paw prints with my paw print border punch, but I couldn't find it anywhere.  I know where it should have been, in the box marked border punches, but it wasn't there!  I really need to have a blitz in my craft room, but I get easily distracted every time I try! 😉  So, I used a Woodware paw punch and punched it five times along a strip of white card, before backing it on black card.

I am joining on the following challenges with this card:

  3. Hello Liz: I came here from the Twofer Challenge to tell you how much I like your sweet cards, those kitties are just adorable.
    And I've been in your situation when you go to get something at the drawer or box or shelf where you keep it and it's NOT THERE!!!!! Ohh!! that is so darn frustrating.
    Did you find your punch? I hope so because it sounds like it's a really nice one.
    Anyway, thank you for sharing your Twofer cards.
    Hugs.
    Maria Rodriguez.

  4. Two fantastic cards using that adorable cat die, Liz! I had thought about getting one similar and didn't ... now I'm kicking myself! :) Need to add it to a wish list. Great way to create two different designs as well. Love the sweet anniversary card with the polka dots. And the happy birthday card is awesome with the perfect patterned paper backing and your row of paw prints --- so cute! Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge! xx

  13. That's such a sweet die, Liz ... those canoodling kitties are adorable, whether appearing as sweethearts on your bright, texture-y stepper anniversary card, or as friends on your text backed paw print birthday card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

  14. Aw, aren't those just the most romantic love cats ever?! These are sensational, Liz! I love the stepper card design and I hear you about Brad Mountain!! Why couldn't we have Brad Pitt instead?? Those are super brads though and they work perfectly with your lovey-dovey design! And what cool pp on your birthday card! What a great way to have an interesting background and take care of the sediment all in one shot! And I love how you used the matted oval to frame them! Sorry you couldn't find the border punch you were after, but the one you used is dynamite for the job! Another detailed and awesome design! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #4! Hugs, Darnell

  16. I love that image of kitties and how you used them on your cards. And, I know how cleaning and organizing can be distracting especially if you run across something you laid aside or have not used yet. Perhaps that is why it takes me so long. And, then after I do organize I still can't find everything. Oh, such is life!

  28. Wonderful cards, Liz, with such a fantastic cat duo! I love how they fit so well on the diamond shape, and their red color really conveys the love theme. I think I have those brads in my pile! The cats are equally as adorable on your birthday card with your wonderful paw border. Way to improvise (although, for your sanity, I do hope you find your border punch)! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

  30. Both of these heart kitties are just adorable, but that red one really sparkles. Love the red & white stepper shape with the diamond focus. The print back ground and black oval set off the black pair of kitties just nicely. Well done! TFS & Hugs
