Week 19 - Two's Company

Hey people. Welcome to this weeks Glitter Geeks Challenge.


This week we will be showing off the work of our brand new design team. I'm so excited for you all to see.

For starters though, I'd like to announce the winners of last weeks FLOWER POWER challenge. 
Oh my there were SOOOOOO many beautiful creations to choose from. I really found it so hard to choose my own top three let alone wonder how my design team chose theirs. But eventually, after a grueling decision, we got there and after counting up the numbers, these fab ladies became top 3.

In order

1. #38 Diane
2. #8 Jayne
3. #7 Kavitha

Congratulations lovelies. Please email Steph on for your badges and prizes.


This challenge was jointly chosen by Josie and Jacqui H. And this week it is  
and is sponsored by the wonderfully talented

She is offering our winner a £10 Voucher to spend in her online store.
Two's Company is simply this, we want to see two of something on your project. 
Two images, two colours, two embellishments, etc.

"Huh???" I hear you say...  No worries, here are our Design Team projects to show you.

StephMy project was made using the new Forever Friends Christmas goodies I got from Hobbycraft on my travels last week. I used gold Mirror Card as backing and used the pearlescent papers that I bought. The main image, the tags and the robins are all die cut stickers from the same range. I used burgundy ribbon and gold pearls to finish.

Josie: This week I used the image from the Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD Rom and the backing papers are from the Pretty Sweet CD Rom. Glossy accents used for high lights and Cosmic shimmer glitter over the card candy.

Hi there!  This week I have kept it nice and simple.  I've stamped one of my favourite images by Margaret Sherry for Penny Black called 'Get together', and coloured it in with a mixture of Flexmarkers and Promarkers.  The image is cut out using a Spellbinders Labels Five die, and I've added a strip of DSP in Cajun Craze from the Regals Collection from Stampin' Up!, and punched this out using the brand new dotted scallop ribbon border punch.
I picked up the cute little felt toadstools from Hobbycraft on a visit there a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't resist adding them to the card!

For this weeks challenge I have used the utterly Adorable Pollycraft image Swings And Slides - Sweet Love Set. I teamed it with Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby Paper Stash, creating the border with a Martha Stewart Edge Punch. I used my trusty Promarkers and coloured pencils for this one.

For this weeks theme "two's company" I have chosen an image from my favourite stamp collection, two adorable Tilda's, stamped using dye based ink and coloured two different shades of pink with pro markers, it's an easel style card created by using Marianne circles die on cream card for the base and antique gold mirror for the layer, this die is so versatile as it can be used in so many different ways! some ribbon and flourish to accent the finished card and of course two pink and cream roses from my stash :) 

For this card I used a Sliekje image, which I absolutely love, and I colored it with my Copic markers.  I added some silver Martha Stewart glitter to the hat’s trimming and to the scarf.  The green cardstock comes from an old Mary Engelbreit kit that I’ve had for years.  The little paper wreath, if I remember correctly, is a Jolee sticker.  It was laying around in my stickers stash.  The gold foil is recycled from something, but I don’t remember what exactly.  I took a couple of red buttons, clipped off the back, and glued them to two plastic snowflakes.  The ribbon used to belong to my mother.  It’s a simple and traditional card, but I like it a lot.

SarahI had a lot of fun with this challenge trying to get two of everything in! The reindeer image is from Elzybells (now sadly closed down) and I also added another Christmas pudding from a Woodware set I just treated myself to. All coloured with Promarkers of course. The two papers are from First Edition 'Festive Treats' and the two ribbons just bits I had in my jar. If you care to look closely you'll also see there are two 3mm gems and two 2mm gems - I might have got slightly carried away with the two thing! Unfortunately I could only get the one greeting in though, it's from the Woodware set I treated myself to last year (are you seeing a theme here?) :)


For this weeks Two's Company Challenge i saw an idea in Craft Stamper magazine that i wanted to try, so i added my "two" into this.

I've used 2 Winnie Owls from Willow Designs.  I printed them out, then used my Cricut to cut the circles round them and also the scalloped shapes.  The owls were coloured with Copics and the edges inked.  The papers are from My Minds Eye.  They were then all stuck together with some brads.

DoreenFor my card I used the cute stamp "Musing Melinda" from Whiff of Joy. I love this stamp. I colored it with Distress Ink and for the wings I used stickles. The papers are from Creative Memories. Because of the theme of this week "Two's company" I used two colours (brown / blue), two soft blue flowers from Prima and two petals, which are made with the "owl" punch from Stampin Up.

Kelly For my card this week i have used this little cutie from Willow Designs, which is coloured with promarkers.  I have used 2 ribbons that i had in my stash.  2 backing papers from Wild Rose Studio Milton's Christmas. 2 poisionettas, 2 cream and 2 purple mini cherry blossoms from Crafty Emmas Store and 2 pink and 2 silver gemmed corners to finish it off.  I think i covered two's company, don't you?

For our Two's Company, I chose a beautiful Sylvia Zet digi called Fairy Girl. I went with two wings, two patterned papers (Prima's Fairy Flora), two ribbons (from Papertrey Ink) and two ticket sentiments (from Tim Holtz).  Of course she was colored up with copics and I put a bit of stardust stickles around the image for some shimmer and shine.

Wow 2nd week as a DT member already!!
For this Week I focused on images by our Sponsor Sharon Armstrong from Willow Design. I have used the Double Sprinkle of Kraft.The Cd Sharon made with Nikky Hall from PolkaDoodles.

I have used: 2 trees, 2 birds, 2 birdhouses, 2 flowers in birds beak....even used 2 different backing papers!!
The ribbon is from Cosmo Cricket and crystals from Swarovski.
