Double Trouble – #46

There is no better way to start a Monday than with a little trouble – A Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge that is!

It’s time once again for my favorite Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge – a one week anything goes challenge that only happens when there are five Mondays! You can find all the details and link up your creations by visiting our challenge blog

I recently purchased the Paper Pal Girl Set from Close to My Heart…they’ve been in the catalog for quite a while, but it wasn’t until recently that I decided I needed to add them to my stamp collection and after playing with them today, I might be hooked. I think I want the Paper Pal Sports Collection next!

My birthday girl is celebrating with a new dress stamped and cut using the Every Little Thing Paper Packet, she even found Wisteria shoes! I cut the girl using the new French Vanilla paper and gave her a bit more color using the Fair Skin TriBlend marker. I didn’t realize that paper dolls could be this much fun.

I’m linking up with our previous partner The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog for the letter “C” – cute, clothing, card!

Dog Days of Winter

My Close to My Heart order was delivered yesterday and it contained the Best Friends Furever Paper Packet & Eat Love Play Stamp Set. I couldn’t wait to get to playing.

I headed over to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to see what the challenge was this week. Image my delight when it looked exactly like a Polaroid.

My card is a tribute to my dog Scuttlebutt. He’s a Border Collie-Aussie mix that although he lives on a farm is not much of a working dog 🙂

Thanks for stopping by.

Color Dare #370

Happy Friday I’m back with another Design Team card for  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is Browns & only 1 Splash of Color

After some clarification on the browns in the Close to My Heart Color Palette, I made a fall card featuring the colors, Toffee, Espresso & Glacier. I’ve seen so many of the plaid pumpkins and decided that a pretty plaid of Glacier & Toffee reminded me of a flannel shirt that I would buy for my dad.

I first stamped the Build a Plaid on a piece of white c/s then stamped and die cut the pumpkin. I layered it on a circle that I stamped with the Thankful, Grateful, Blessed Sentiment repeatedly in Espresso Ink. I added a few retired embellishments in Espresso and Glacier to finish off the card.

You can visit the Color My Heart Color Dare blog for all the information on how to play along as well as finding additional inspiration from the other Design Team members.

Double Trouble #43

There is no better way to start a Monday than with a little trouble – A Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge that is!

Our challenge for the next two weeks (11/18-12/1) is Bring On the Glitz with the fun twist of adding a snow person, you can also get extra points in our prize draw by linking to our Challenge Partner Cupcake Inspirations. You can find all the details and link up your creations by visiting our challenge blog.

My card is actually a fun treat holding a packet of Hot Chocolate, because afterall if you’re gonna play with snowmen you need to warm up when you’re finished. I embossed my background with the Snowflakes embossing folder – it’s got all sizes and shapes of snowflakes and might be my favorite embossing folder ever! I didn’t want to cover up all the snowflake B&T from the Holly Jolly paper packet so I kept my sentiment simple and to the right of the snowman instead of all the way across the band. It’s difficult to see, but delightful in person, I used the shimmer brush on the snowman and then lots of silver glitter gems to keep my card glistening.
