Challenge #7 - The Dog Days of Summer

This card is for our Double Trouble Challenge #7 - using the Twisted Sister's optional twist to include on your project food or beverage for a summer day and pairing up with HeARTful Stamping Challenge "Dog Days of Summer".  

The Ice Cream truck was stamped, fussy-cut and pieced with some of the other design papers, layered and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.  Doggie was colored and adhered with 3D thin foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped on black, heat embossed with white powder, framed with red and scattered and adhered to background paper.   



 

Please hop by at Double Trouble and HeARTful Stamping to see the inspiration from the DT members and  join in creating something, anything and everything for a summer project.

The inside of the card was decorated with design paper from the same packet and a couple of frames for the sentiment.

You Lift Me Up - H2H - Aug Week 2

This week Heart2Heart is challenging you to show us your layers...whether that be layered paper, stamps, embellishments...the FUN thing about challenges is that YOU get to call the shots so show us what you got!

Using some of the zip strips and design papers, cut in 1/2" and 1" strips were adhered on Gypsy cardstock and then adhered to the white card base.  This must have been one of my favorite paper packs at the time because I only have scraps left over...but still enough to do a similar card.  The adorable bunny was another of my copic class images which was colored, fussy-cut and adhered with thin foam sheet to a frame of gypsy.  The second cloud on image was fussy-cut and adhered with thin foam tape.  

The sentiment was hand-printed on one of the tags from the Kaleidoscope Complements.  



Just added a border of one of the design papers to the inside of the card. 


Hop on by for this week's Heart2Heart theme to see inspirations from the Design Team. We invite you to showcase your favorite project...you have until the end of the month to create and submit. Earn a Perfect Attendance Badge if you create a card for each weekly theme during that month...to view these challenges they are listed on the sidebar at the top of the Blog.

Party - Color Dare #304

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #304 using My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #396.  First went to my stash to see what MFT dies I had for this sketch...perfect balloons and sentiment.  Followed pretty much the cuts of the sketch, but instead of the banner I chose to use the sentiment "Party".  The balloons were cut using design papers, distressed the edges to give it dimension, added the nail tape to the back of the balloon and wrapped it around the tag, rounded the balloons and adhered with 3D foam tape.

If I Had a Flower - Double Trouble Challenge #6

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #6 "Some Thing, Any Thing and Every Thing" and using the Little Acres Stamp Set "Lots of Poppies", which was a random draw prize from Little Acres Challenge back three months ago.  Each month for six months I get Happy Mail (current stamp set for that month) from Little Acres, and I still have three more months...the stamp is always a pleasant surprise.  

Double Dare's Challenge #6 is for one week only, our 5th Monday in any given month is an "Anything Goes".  Please join us at Double Trouble to see the other DT member inspirations.  And Pair and Share with our previous partnering with Color Dare, Heart2Heart, Three Amigos and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and win additional chances for our random draw prize.  






Decided to make this card with very few layers because I didn't want to fussy-cut all the stems...so I stamped the field of poppies on the bottom edge of my white cardstock and colored them with a variety of Copic pens.  

Wasn't happy with them just being on the white cardstock and guess what, I fussy-cut another stamped item and used it to mask over the flowers.  Selecting a couple foliage stamps proceeded stamping lots of foliage in Pear, Sweet Leaf and Fern...very please with it.  On top sponged some blue and mink inks, stamped and colored the large poppy, stamped the sentiment in green leaf and added Momento London Fog because it was too light (closest to Mink).  


Popped up the large poppy and then stamped the same poppy field on the side border of the inside in Momento London Fog

Love Ya - Color Dare #303

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #303 using one of the images colored in my Copic Class.  I did change a couple of the colors for better matching with the Color Dare TicTacToe graphic.  Have a pretty good stack of images that have been colored in class and they usually don't fit in with the color challenges, but this time it worked out for me  and I was more than satisfied with the result.  What do you think?
