Double Trouble – #98

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.

This week the challenge is a Something, Anything, Everything challenge with Twisted Sisters unusual twist of choosing ANYTHING FROM MY CARD.

“This Twist is on you… choose at least one element from my card below and include it on your project!  You may repeat my colors, my images, my shapes, my layout, or my embellishments. Choose at least one element, i.e. dry embossing, snowflakes, twine, plaid, banner, cookies/sweets, dots, etc.  Don’t keep us guessing… tell us what element(s) you selected as YOUR TWIST and include in your post description! 
This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble’s random draw.   Additionally, I have some Blog Candy I want to give away… Leave a comment on my blog HERE and you will be eligible for another random draw prize.”  

I am in love with the Macaron stamp set…not such a big fan of the cookie themselves, but the fun colors that they come in led me to create a sweet Christmas themed card for a friend.

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 team up with one of our previous partners for an extra chance at our random draw.

Pumpkin Spice Macaron

I told you I was going to convince you that the Ooh La La Macaron stamp set belonged in your stamp collection. Here I paired with with a plaid from the Pumpkin Spice Paper Packet, stamped it and colored it with my Tri Blend Markers I envisioned a fall flavored extravaganza – Pumpkin, Mocha and Salted Caramel. My mouth is almost watering. What flavor would you choose?

I hope you’ve enjoyed my week of sweet treats. Make sure to let me know if you purchase the Macaron stamp set and I’ll get the Chick’s Picks Card Kit in the mail to you! Thanks for stopping by!

Sweeter with Friends

If anything can convince you to fall in love with the Chick’s Pick for September maybe it will be not one but two slim line cards featuring these fun Macarons. Both of these cards pack a punch with watercolored macarons. Don’t they look good enough to eat? The card on the left features a brand new slimline die – I just love those hearts in the background and the new Shortbread cardstock YES PLEASE! The second card exclaims that Life is Sweeter with Friends (and Macarons) how true!!! Both of these cards feature the brand new colors including the color of the year.

macaron (/ˌmækəˈrɒn/mak-ə-RON;[1][2]French: [ma.ka.ʁɔ̃]) or French macaroon (/ˌmækəˈruːn/mak-ə-ROON[3][4]) is a sweet meringue-based confection made with egg whiteicing sugargranulated sugaralmond meal, and food colouring. It wasn’t until recently that I had actually tried a Macaron. All the colors and flavors mesmerize me.

Thanks for stopping by…I hope you’ll consider adding the Ooh La La Macaron to your stamp collection and making some sweet friendship cards.
