Twofer Hearts

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm also glad that I got to do some crafting.

This month's Twofer Challenge is celebrating 
their 2 year Blogaversary.
Congratulations Twofer!

This month's challenge is

My first card went with an non-traditional design from a heart die.

I've die cut the heart twice from coordinating decorative paper and trimmed
with scissors for the bathing suit shape.

For my twofer, I've gone more traditional that can be used
as a valentine, wedding or anniversary card.
The smaller heart is from the same die as the bathing suit.
This time I used my griddle and lots of clear, white and gold embossing powder
to do a faux enamel technique.

The larger heart and love were cut from a piece of packaging or envelope lining
that I had saved and the background is a bit of paper with gold sparkle.

The Krafty Chicks Challenge is asking for CAS cards this week.
So I'll stop by there too.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

I love your take on this challenge. The swim suit is the cutest not only for the challenge, but if I wore swim suits this would be my pick. The heart is so pretty and I love using the griddle for faux enamel.This is beautiful. That is a new challenge blog to me so thank you for the introduction.

Beautiful cards, Bonnie! Love how you made a swim suit out of a heart! A gret idea!
Hugs, Liv

Two wonderful cards Bonnie and your thinking outside the box on the first to make the pretty bikini and then the faux enamel look so beautiful on the second. Great designs and colour. x

HilaryJane said...

What a clever use for your heart die, the swimming costume is just great, it has a lovely summery feel. The heat embossing on your second card is wonderful xx

Marcia Hill said... creative are these two cards Bonnie?! Your bathing suit card from a heart is FABULOUS and I love the design with the embossed wavy lines behind the bikini! Your 2nd card is SOOOOO pretty with the faux enamel heart...such a simple design but so STUNNING! Thanks so much for sharing both these beauties with us at The Twofer Challenge!! :0)

Mac Mable said...

Such a creative and fun bikini card and love how you cut it from the heart x. Amazing mixed media second card, with an eye catching technique. Clearly two very different designs from the same die cut.....You are one very talented lady Bonnie x.

Carole said...

Ingenious clever how you have used the heart on your first card...and very classy with the traditional way on the second. I am seeing such talent out in blogland..must be the new century.xx

A great interpretation of the challenge Bonnie! 2 lovely cards!x

This is just so clever Bonnie - a bathing suit! How did you even think of it?!! It's so pretty too :)
I love your elegant faux enamel heart too - perfect on the gold flecked paper. Vicky x

Great twofer, Bonnie - never would've dreamed to make a two-piece bathing suit out of a heart shape. So clever and fun!! What an elegant faux metal heart on card two - love, love, love it!!

JD/ Jill said...

How clever! I love both of your cards! Very nicely done!

BożenA said...

It is very creative what you have created from one heart! Two beautiful cards and such an amazing look at one heart!

Robyn Oliver said...

You are just brilliant Bonnie, I would never have seen a bikini in a heart before - bought a great smile to my face, and your conventional heart card is gorgeous - loving all those metallic swirls - glad to see someone else collects all sorts of lovely paper/card.... two wonderful heart card, hugs Robyn

Christine Alexander said...

too funny and so clever, great way to use a heart die, who would have thought of making a bikini out of it :) love both cards.

Sandy said...

That's a twofer alright! What - about a 40D?
You brought the smiles. Beautiful heart card - you would know, I got rid of my electric griddle cause I never use it and thought I wouldn't. Now you use yours to make this beautiful card!
Sandy xx

Loll said...

Great Twofer cards Bonnie! I took me a while to figure out where the heart was in card one (this is before I read your post). It's so clever and creative! Your second card is elegant and beautiful. LOVE the enamel heart! xx

Brenda said...

Well aren't you the clever gal with your twofers Bonnie! I love the little bathing suit you have created with your heart, reminds me of when we would take a heart and make a butt with underwear. lol You have the whole suit though and I love it. I love your second twofer too, done in a traditional way. The enameled looking white and gold heart is just gorgeous. You hit this challenge out the park! Hugs, Brenda

Nstiz said...

These have to be the most innovative cards I’ve seen in a long time. Who would have thought to make a bikini out of a heart! That was genius! Love the gold mixed media look on the heart card too. Both of these are so fun!

Susan said...

Very clever idea to make a bikini from a heart die! And the second card is gorgeous - love the faux enamel heart layered over the solid gold one.

kiwimeskreations said...

Whoo-eee - you really are strutting your stuff with that bikini Bonnie!! - that is stunning, as is the other more conventional use of the die

Kath said...

Fabulous cards - I love the traditional heart card and you've been very imaginative to use the heart to make that lovely bathing suit.

Jane Willis said...

Oh WOW, love the arty elegance of the second card but I'm absolutely blown away by the first one. What a great idea to turn the heart into a bikini!

TK said...

Genius! Man I don't know how you do it, but the bikini idea is fabulous from a heart! Two great cards, Bonnie

Darnell said...

Hysterical, Bon! Whatever possessed you to think of making a two-piece swimsuit, especially in the thick of winter?! It is brilliant ~ looks like it might even fit my 44 xlongs, lol! Your brilliance continues with the wave embossed circle background and the wavy flow of the happy sentiment! To show your range, you went completely opposite with your second design and made a stunning elegant rich-looking double heart with a marble design! WOWZA!!! Love the elegant background paper, too! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer's 2nd Blogaversary challenge! Hugs, Darnell

Trina P. said...

OMG! Your bikini is so FUN and BRILLIANT! Love it. Your twofer is elegant and classy.

Jo said...

Your imagination is brilliant. The bikini against the wavy dry embossing is so very special, so very creative.
The second is so classy with all that gold. Definitely a high end card and beautifully executed. Nice work and so unique.

The faux metal heart is simply gorgeous! Love the shiny gold here and there. Amazing twofers!
