Did you hear the news? Trouble Maker’s husband opened the door and found that the REAL Trouble Maker had come for a visit…you can read the rest of the story over on the Double Trouble Challenge Blog! The best part is he brought his two friends.
Once in a while there are 5 Mondays in a month…this throws a real kink in our schedule so we’ve opted for a one week SPECIAL challenge! We’ve titled it SOMETHING, ANYTHING & EVERYTHING! You can find all the details here!
Trouble Maker challenged us to have a little fun this week, Some “Thing”, Any “Thing” and Every “Thing” is welcome in this special ONE WEEK only challenge.
Twisted Sister (that’s me) is challenging you to decorate the inside of your card.
Double Trouble is giving permission to link up with any of our previous challenge partners to earn an extra entry into our prize draw.
My card is a pop-up window card which I saw on Jenifer McGuire Ink. So cool and so simple, too! I’m also sharing at Heart To Heart and their Anything Goes Challenge.
Although I’m head over heals in love with Close to My Heart I also like to find things at other companies that we don’t offer so every once in a while I browse the “shelves” online at My Favorite Things. That’s where the Too-Cute Turtles stamps and die cuts came from.
This is my first go at a video so I hope you’ll leave me a comment and tell me if you’d like to see more.
Thanks so much for stopping by…I hope you’ll come get into some Double Trouble…it really is Double the Fun!!!
Today I have a little treat for you made with the Cats & Bats paper packet. This folding pop up card packs a lot of wow factor – no tricks!
I have to be honest, I’ve had the instructions for this card for about a year, but I was worried that there was too much measuring and I’d not be happy with the results. Sunday afternoon I cut all the pieces and sat down to watch the video one more time through each step I paused the video and followed the instructions. I was feeling some major intimidation, but once I got the mechanism to open and close properly on my first attempt I was a happy girl.
I decorated the front of my card by stamping the cob web from the cats & bats stamp set and adding a creepy spider from the Cricut Artbooking collection I popped it up with a little 3D foam tape and used my gold shimmer brush to give him a little sparkle. I kept the inside simple just lining the panels with B&T paper and adding pieces from the complements pack. On the last panel I cut down a PML card for the sentiment. One more use for those Picture My Life Cards!
