Trees cards 3 and 4

Using 1 stamp in 2 different ways for 2 different occasions:

Cards 3 and 4 are 2 more different ways I used the same little pine Christmas tree stamp for a posting a few days ago. These two new cards missed the deadline for the Twofer Card Challenge no 6 Trees theme but I will link to A Inky Mess challenge blog's new month of mixed media that starts today, 25 June 2018.

Card 3 Tree stamp; layered; brads to simulate pine cones; colored pencil outlining of tree and muted marker ink soaking through from bottom layer; 2 different Thanksgiving theme sentiment messages stamped and an adorable felt hedgehog stick-on to complete this Thanksgiving card.

Card 4 Tree stamp used repeatedly with silver glitter and some blue and purple colored pencil accents on trees; white paint pen for sentiment; blue and lavender ink swirled for cloud; 3-D butterfly sticker to complete this sympathy card.

These are cards 1 and 2 from a post a few days ago. O Holy Night Christmas card has torn paper and white paint pen snowy accents on trees and snow ridges. Thinking of You card has pine tree stamp made into blueberry bushes! Blue and purple markers to make the blueberries, black ink for the birdie stamp, blue ink for the thinking of you stamp, 2 shades of green for grass details and brown for dirt (colored pencils).

A total of 4 different occasions for 1 stamp of a tree. Yes, all 4 were stamped but each has been highlighted uniquely and/or put on different papers (white cardstock, blue cardstock/pre-folded blank card, and 2 were on minty green paper). The intended goal of Twofer Card Challenge is that 1 stamp or die (tree theme for June) is used 2 different ways on 2 occasions/cards.

For A Inky Mess challenge blog (AIM), it is a mixed media monthly challenge. Check what the design team has created for the June/July inspiration:
