Harvest Twofer

Greetings from Stamp Camp 2018.  All the Cardologists were here this weekend - lots of laughter, eating, and best of all, crafting.  More about that later.

Last night one of my dear friends asked if I was going to enter the Twofer Harvest challenge this month.  And when I gave the excuse that I didn’t bring any harvest stamps, all the Cardologists started digging.  Of all the stuff we brought, and I am talking about carloads, we had only one set with a basket of apples.  My friend had been joking, but I took it as a challenge.  Long after everyone else went to bed, I was stamping and coloring....even when I went to bed, I was dreaming about these cards.  I hope you enjoy the effects.

This first card was inspired by text messages one of the Cardologists was receiving from her husband.  He was signing off all his text messages with food little artichoke, my asparagus sauce, my seven layer chocolate was so cute.

No beautiful sunsets this weekend; in fact, it has been cold with snow flurries. Although most of the leaves are down, there is still a grouping of beautiful trees with reddish orange leaves outside our window.  This second card is only partially inspired by our fall weather. At least we have three kinds of farm grown apples on our shelf (not that we eat a lot of healthy snacks here).

I used: Inky Antics Apple Pie (basket of apples, slice of pie, sentiments), Loralie Art Stamps Jake the Baker (Jake).


  1. I love your competitive spirit, Dora! I am totally enjoying the results of your late-night labor with these gorgeous and different fall designs! Great coloring on your bushel baskets of apples and on the backgrounds! Loved the story of the sweet and inventive husband ... your sediment and inside image are just as adorable! And the bare branch with the fall leaves on the ground is perfect on your second design to reflect what's happening outside right now!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #10! Wish I could have been with you; sounds like it was a ton of fun!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Great cards Dora!! What great inspiration from your friend's hubby ... and how "sweet" for him to sign off with those words! :) I LOVE the background of your first card. Fabulous design, colours and patterns. Your bushel of apples pops with the white background on the small panel. And the inside is so fun!! What a great card!

    Your second card is beautiful with the wash of autumn sky colours and your sweet bushel of apples. The leaves following are the perfect compliment! Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge!

  3. Two perfect cards for the Twofer Challenge. I love your first card, with such a fun sentiment inside. Your second card is beautiful, such a lovely tranquil scene. xx

  4. I still can't believe that you took up the challenge and came up with these fantastic designs! Love the embossed and sponged background you made for the first card's front and the fun inside! The watercolored background on your second card is so pretty for your basket full of delicious looking apples!
    So happy to see you in the Twofer gallery!

  5. Two wonderful cards, I just love your colouring too. Great fun sentiment inside the first one.
