Double Trouble #3

Happy Monday are you ready for some trouble?  Double Trouble that is!  I hope you’ve enjoyed our first two challenges and are ready to play again.

Thing 1 and Thing 2 convinced me that we should take a trip to the Beauty Parlor, “trust us” they said.  We each got a new hair-do and challenge you to make a project using the hues.  I’m adding a twist challenging you to use a “string thing” – ribbon, hemp, twine, etc.

 

Thing 2 is daring you to link up to the Color My Heart Color Dare #297, using Glacier, Sorbet & Nutmeg.  Please let us know if you’ve linked up to all three challenges.  We’re looking forward to seeing what you create.

My card started using my wood-grain embossing folder inked with Nutmeg ink on a piece of Glacier cardstock – then layering the elk which was stamped in Nutmeg onto a piece of Sorbet Cardstock.  I tied a piece of burlap ribbon and added a couple of bronze sequins to finish it off.  A masculine birthday card all ready to go in the mail!

I hope you’ll take some time to come play along with us at Double Trouble – remember our Twist and Thing 2 challenges are always optional.  Thanks for taking some time out of your day to visit my blog.  Let me know what you think of the new challenges, by leaving a comment on this post.

Color Dare # 263

 

Happy Friday and welcome to another week of the Color My Heart Color Dare.  This week we are featuring  the colors:  Espresso, Fern, Pomegranate, Saffron, Toffee, White Daisy and Optional Gold.

No automatic alt text available.

Great rich fall colors just in time for a masculine card.

I kind of chuckled when I linked up my card, because apparently DT member Debi Gardner had the same idea…great minds think a like!  I spent an entire Saturday morning playing in the Craft Coop designing cards for my October Just the Basics Card Class.

I love my Just the Basics class.  It really features some fundamentals of stamping focusing on some techniques and how to use different tools, etc.   We also focus on using the Paper Fundamentals line instead of a seasonal paper packet…such fun!  It’s usually the first Thursday of each month – you can find my card class schedule over on my Papercrafting Princess Facebook Page.

OK, now it’s YOUR turn!  The full details on how to join the fun is in the sidebar of our homepage.  Each color dare is open for two weeks until 9:00 CDT on Thursday, October 12!

Visit our homepage to check out what the other design team members have created and leave them a little love (comments make our day)!

Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite Fundamentals paper pack is.  Thanks for stopping by…I really hope you’ll link up!

Another Three Amigos

As you know I was asked to be a guest designer for the month of September over at the Three Amigo’s Blog Hop.  When I found out I was to be creating with the Falling for You papers I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to create.  I had a whole gamut of Halloween ideas, but I hadn’t quite wrapped my head around fall.

Once I opened the paper pack I knew there were some masculine cards in my future.  I love the neutral colors and how they blend with the new basics line.  My picture is not the best for showing the details of the B&T papers that I chose to use with the Hunting for Words Stamp set.  I also decided to make this a top fold card so I could add rounded corners to the bottom of the card for a little detail.  I kept my embellishments to a minimum using a piece of burlap ribbon and just two of the sequins from the Falling for You set.

I hope you’ll take a minute and link up with the Three Amigo’s Blog Hop.  It’s a month long swap so you still have plenty of time to join.

Thanks for stopping by…leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite fall holiday to make cards for.
