Our challenge consists of three parts: Trouble Makers main challenge, Double Dares challenge to link with another blog which you may or may not decided to participate in and Twisted Sisters surprise challenge! You can find all the details on the rules page of the challenge blog.

This week the challenge is Let’s Brighten the Day with the Color My Heart Color Dare as our challenge partner.

My card started with one of my favorite patterns from the Make it From Your Heart and I chose a color palette of Charcoal, Glacier & Thistle from Love of Color. If you ever need a good color combination that is the place to go!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and will consider joining our challenge. If you’d like more inspiration visit my team members at Double Trouble and our partner team Color My Heart Color Dare.

It’s time for more trouble…Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge that is.

Our challenge consists of three parts: Trouble Makers main challenge, Double Dares challenge to link with another blog which you may or may not decided to participate in and Twisted Sisters surprise challenge! You can find all the details on the rules page of the challenge blog.

Challenge #63 is celebrating the Dog Days of Summer requiring the use of embossing on your card. If you include a Critter (Twisted Sister is specifically asking for a DOG) you’ll also be able to link with our challenge blog partner. All the details are right here on the blog post!

Our granddaughter just talked her mom into a new puppy…after just telling my husband that we weren’t getting any more dogs after ours was gone I have to admit that “Lola” has my heart! I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest and used two different embossing folders. I grabbed a stamp set in my MFT Stash and colored in just like the picture her mom sent me.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and will consider joining our challenge. If you’d like more inspiration visit my team members at Double Trouble and our partner team 2 Craft Critter Crazies.

Double Trouble #62

I’m late, I’m late for a very important date…

I was on the road home from Arizona for 8 days and although the top priority on my list was getting into my Craft Coop, my husband thought unloading the trailer and doing some chores trumped that. I didn’t think I better pull the “whatever card” so I did a little laundry, canned some peaches and hung out with friends that we hadn’t seen in 6 weeks!

When I was leaving Arizona, I ran across this cute little gnome that told me he was celebrating Christmas in July in the Grand Canyon State and he needed some cool treats to cool him down.

Double Dare teamed us up with Heart2Heart who’s having a favorite tool challenge. Since I’ve been stamping for a very long time I have many favorite tools, but my BIG SHOT is probably my favorite because I HATE fussy cutting!

I hope you’ll come play along with us at Double Trouble and link with our partner Heart2Heart Challenges.

Double Trouble #61

I decided I couldn’t let Stephanie have all the fun so I’m back with a little help from my friends, LOL!

This week Trouble Maker is providing a great Tic Tac Toe board, there’s just one problem that I can find…she left off the bling! Double Dare teamed us up with Cupcake Inspirations so if you choose to go through the middle with Flowers and add some sequins or pearls as your bling you are all set to earn those bonus points.

My challenge was just that…a real challenge. I’m still playing from Arizona with one block, a black ink pad, scissors and a couple of stamp sets that I recently ordered. I did make a run to Michael’s yesterday and picked up a paper trimmer. I was talking with Trouble Maker and told her if she’d send me some paper and embellishments I’d make my card.

My card follows the middle row, insect, flower & woodgrain. Trouble Maker sent me, Lemonade CS, Stitched Together B&T, Woodgrain B&T and I asked for some die cut tea cups in Candy Apple. When I got the pieces I went in search of a sketch and found one from My Favorite Things that I had pinned for future use. I used the July SOTM to stamp a sentiment on the teacup and popped it up with some foam dots.

I hope you’ll come and play along at Double Trouble. You can find all the details on how to link up at our blog.

Double Trouble – #52

There is no better way to start a Monday than with a little trouble – A Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge that is…it’s a pretty good way to wrap up a Thursday of crafting too!

I’ve been missing in Double Trouble Land for quite some time…decided that I wanted to give up my seat on the DT and turn things over to my twin…I’m sure she’ll do a good job, I will hopefully find time along my journeys to play along.

The challenge this week is to include at least one spring item on your card, a twist of adding a bee and to link up with Bitten By the Bug. I grabbed a retired paper packet (I’m trying to bust my stash while I’m in Stay Healthy, Stay Home mode) and the multi-square die from Close to My Heart and the Share the Joy stamp set. I quickly colored all my images with the tri-blend markers and then layered on my banners. I decided to give things a light touch of clear Shimmer Pen, but it’s so hard to see in a picture.

My card was made in Trouble Makers Craft Room which I messed up pretty good. I know this because I heard it again & again what a mess I’d made. I found a cute stitched rectangle window die in her stuff and grabbed this adorable Paper Smooches stamp set.

Speaking of Paper Smooches, I had the good luck to meet Kim in her adorable store while I was in Arizona.

She is just as sweet as she is adorable. I can hardly wait to go back.

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!
