Harvesting Sympathy

I'm joining in again this month with Darnell's Twofer Challenge!  This month the word is HARVEST.  You use the same stamps on two different designs for two different occasions.
I used the same stamp set for both cards -  First Fruits from PTI (no longer available).
For the first card I used traditional fall colors and a harvest sentiment from the set.  I die cut the frame using Pierced Feature Frames from PTI.  The outside frame is popped up on foam tape.  I inked the top of the stamp with Canyon Clay and the stems with Simply Chartreuse.  I added a tiny twinkle to the top of each sheaf of wheat.
For my Twofer -  I used the same wheat sheaves image but embossed it in blue and added a sympathy sentiment stamped on a blue strip, layered over the stamping with foam dots.  On this card I used  Scallop Stackers Large die for the framing and Mix & Mat Herringbone Die to make the stitched edge gray panel.

Pretty harvest image and great use of the the DP for the frame with the fall colours. Love the simplicity of your blue sympathy card.

Two very different cards using the same lovely stamp, Julia! Love that patterned frame! And the blue frame adds such a different look to the wheat! You've rocked this challenge, my friend!

These are both lovely. Your first card is truly autumnal, beautiful colors, but I also love how this image came out in blue. Very fitting for a with sympathy design. It’s so inspiring to see how the same stamp can be used for such different occasions.
Thanks for sharing your works with us over at Inkspirational! Hugs, Pia

A beautiful set of cards, Julia! Love the frame, the warm colors, and the sparkles! And look how well this bouquet works on a sympathy card!
Wonderful to see you in the Twofer gallery!

Those PTI sheaves of wheat are classic, elegant, and perfect for this month's challenge. Love the little twinkle you've added to your first card, and that you've done the second sheaf in blues, which works so well for a sympathy card. Two wonderful cards. Thank you so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge. Bev

Your greens and oranges are so gorgeous on your first card, especially in your stamping of the wheat! The serene blue makes for a perfect sympathy card, and I love the large scallop bg die cut to frame your wheat. Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

Two wonderful cards, I love the designs. xx

Gorgeous image to start, Julia!! LOVE the first card done in the Autumn colours. The patterned paper frame is so beautiful and works brilliantly with the image. Your second card is a lovely sympathy card. More subdued colours and beautiful design. Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge! xx

What a great choice for the HARVEST prompt, Julia! You have really made it the star of your designs! I love the coloring, sweet gems, and frame on your first design and how beautiful the wheat looks embossed in blue with that loopy scallop frame on your sympathy card! Sensational, sis!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #10! Hugs, Darnell

What a gorgeous wheat image, Julia ... the tiny gold dots on your first card add so much to it's delicate feel ... and I love the art deco style pattern on the frame! The blues and greys make for such a calm and serene sympathy card, so perfect for the occasion! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)
