Double Trouble #39

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

It’s a special week at Double Trouble (9-30 thru 10-6) is our Something, Anything, Everything Challenge with the fun twist of making PINK your prominent color to help us celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you can also get extra points in our prize draw by linking to one of our previous challenge partners.

My card is a fancy fold card with my favorite combination of Ballerina & Black. The big bold flower flips open from a fancy fold card to display the first sentiment and then an additional sentiment is inside the card with room to write a message and sign your name.

I hope you’ll come play along with our short week, but extremely fun challenge. Don’t forget to link up and join the fun…everyone needs a little Double Trouble in their life!

Color Dare #360

Happy Friday I’m excited to be back on the Design Team for the  Color My Heart Color Dare.   This week our challenge is to pick a row and play Tic Tac Toe!

I chose the Top Row Pansy, Heather and Sugarplum – although these three colors retired from the CTMH lineup on August 31 – I couldn’t resist playing with them one last time.

I used the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and chose to have some seeds floating across the light side of the Sugarplum cardstock. I loved blowing dandelions as a kid, but not so much as an adult when there is a field of yellow in my grass.

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.

There is just one more week for you to purchase items from the Seasonal Expressions 2. This catalog was packed full of fun items including the One Year Older Stamp Set.

One Year Older

This stamp set coordinates with the Thin Cuts – Shaker Window & Confetti and was how I used it for my first card – a birthday card for a special friend turning 74!

Since the stamp set was on my desk I decided to use it to put together a few additional cards for my upcoming Card Palooza.

All the cards were made with the retired I Heart Us paper packet yet they all seem so different. Each of the cards features the color Lagoon, but combined with other colors it can go from masculine to feminine or even a neutral.

I challenge you to look at the SE2 one more time and make sure that you haven’t missed something that you really need to have. Thanks for stopping by.

Charming Borders

Today I’m sharing some bright sunny cards using the Charming Borders stamp set.

Borders don’t just have to be borders…as you can see on my cards I’ve stamped the border stamp all over to get a custom B&T paper.

Have you added the Charming Borders to your shopping cart? What do you plan on using them for?

Double Trouble #35

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 (8/5 -8/18 ) is a 3-2-1 Recipe with the fun twist of adding something nautical, you can also get extra points in our prize draw by linking to our Challenge Partner Try Stamping At Tuesday . You can find all the details and link up your creations by visiting our challenge blog.

My card was made using the retired Tommy Paper Packet and the Epic Birthday stamp set. I have been going through my older paper packets and trying to use them up. I’m also trying to restore my birthday card stash for the 2nd half of the year. I really love the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday and hope that you will play along too.

Double Trouble #34

Happy Monday!!! It’s Free For All Monday on Double Trouble so grab your your stuff and create whatever your heart desires! This is a one week special challenge so you have to be quick, won’t you join the fun?

Thing 1 says this is easier than folding a fitted sheet and I have to agree. Twisted Sister has a fun twist to include sunshine or a sunburst on your card. Double Dare is asking us to link up with a previous challenge partner.

My card started with equal sized rectangles cut in half corner to opposite corner and then laid down to create a fun sunburst shape. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the white CS and then layered everything on a Sweet Leaf panel that was cut with the Charming Borders die cut, tied up with some Sweet Leaf Ribbon and layered on a white card base.

I hope you’ll choose to come play along – Double Trouble is such a fun way to fill your day!
