 I used :

  • Distress oxide inks for the watercolor smooshed background on the first card
  • Versafine black ink

Card #2:

  • Geometric-menagerie stamp set by Altenew 
  • Promarkers to color the giraffe
  • "Enamel Dots" - self made by using a small circle punch, Promarkers and Glossy accents
  • Large Circle die to cut out the window
  • Versafine black ink

Challenges for first card :

The male room challenge ~ Anything goes -  Playing with the optional twist of a one layer card

Seize the birthday ~ Anything goes


Challenges for the second card :

CAS colours and sketches  ~ Colors : red blue and yellow

Time out challenges ~ Embellishments


Both cards going to the Twofer card challenge ~ Zoo animals

I made 2 different cards for 2 different occasions using the same giraffe stamp


Thanks for visiting me today !

Oh! Now there's a different sort of giraffe and I love it! Fabulous giraffe-colored background on your birthday card and lots of color on your "what's up?" card. Great sentiment for a giraffe! You aced the challenge, Hannelie. Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer!

Oh my goodness, Hannelie!!! Two fabulous cards! I love the geometric giraffe!!! Love the way you used the colors from the CAS colors and sketches in the second one for the giraffe and the embellishments. Wonderful design, as always. Thanks so much for playing with us at Time Out!

You managed to get just the right colors behind your majestic giraffes. I love your handmade enamel dots, too. I've done that a time or two myself, using single-hole punches.

You rocked all these challenges with your fabulous cards, Hannelie! I love the manly birthday card design with the inside-out giraffe coloring! Very cool idea, my friend! And your second design is so fun with the repeated sediment inside the circle and the giraffe colored in primary colors! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #15! Hugs, Darnell

These giraffes are so cool! I love the design and how you've used them on your cards, Hannelie! LOVE the masculine card with the splotches of shades of brown for the background. And your fun "What's Up" card is bright and happy with the primary colours. Two fantastic designs! Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge!

As usual, Hannelie - awesome cards! Love the inky background on the first card. Great use of the colors for the second. Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

I have to say that your first card has really blown me away. The idea to use giraffe colors abstractly, and then stamp over them with your giraffe stamps is really brilliant. I absolutely love this card. CAS, and wonderful. And how cool to use primary colors on your second card?!! Those three dots finish this off perfectly, too. We won't even talk about the sentiment...just right, though!! Great cards, my friend. Thanks so very much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge!! Bev
