Hi - Color Dare #382 Purple Monochromatic Shaker Card

Here is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #382.  CTMH has so many pretty purples so I knew this color challenge would be based on some of the old Paper Fundamental design sheets.  In the Whimsy Paper Fundamentals there was a real pretty floral design sheet and a striped sheet which complemented the floral.  The striped design sheet was die cut with a corner die.  What a fantastic shaker card this would make...so lined the edge of the die cut with 3D regular foam tape, added the sequins and then adhered the purple background.  

The floral was so pretty, and rather than stamping and coloring, decided to fussy-cut a couple of the flowers and layer them with 3D foam tape for dimension.  Sequins were randomly placed with Bitty Sparkles in the middle and a die cut sentiment was added using another purple. 







Please pop over to ColorMyHeart Color Dare and see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered this challenge. Please join us in this fun color challenge. Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks so if you didn't share your project the first week you still have another week to enter that challenge...current challenges are on the side bar of the blog.

Double Trouble Challenge #50 - It's a Tall Order partnering with Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #50 "It's a Tall Order" using the optional twist "Stack It Up" and partnering with Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #445.  The paperpack used had complements and PML cards that dies that could be used for my stack of cups and long banner, and the circle in sketch was replaced by my floral.  Selected coordinating papers for the background panels and even the scallop edge was in the complements.  So my card went together pretty fast until I decided I wanted a shadow behind my cups so it added some fussy-cutting.  And the sentiment was picked because during a cold nothing better than a cup of tea and flowers to lift you up.   





Please visit us at Double Trouble for this fun challenge, 
view the projects from other Design Team members and entrants

Looking forward to seeing you there

Double Trouble #49 "Again and Again" Hogs & Kisses It's Your Day

Here is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #49 "Again and Again" wherein you have to at least repeat one item on your project (my repeats were clouds and critters)... and using the optional twist of "Critters" and using an old item from your stash.  If you used Double Troubles optional twist... you are also able to submit your project to Use Your Stuff "Critters".  

This card was made with the inspiration of Jennifer McGuire's tutorial on "Pop-Up Shadow Box" and I had just purchased these farm animal dies and wanted to use them.  The Double Trouble Challenge and Use Your Stuff was perfect.  

Working with creating this little Shadow Box was easy and a lot of fun, but placement of the pieces took some time in my juggling them around to get the scene and movement of images I wanted.  This card folds to an A2 card... when the card is pulled out of envelope,  the sides are pulled to make the cloud and lamb move across the shadow box.  



When sides are pullled you can see the sun come out from behind the big cloud bringing the recipient some sunshine.

Sending Smiles

This is my DT Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #379, a Valentine Inspiration Board and an Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #352 that has already closed. Cut the bottle from a clear soft plastic bag and in cardstock, penciled in where bottle would be, placed some of the candy hearts and then pieced together the bottle and placed over the hearts.  Again, outlined where I would place the flowing hearts and adhered them with glue in layers.  Added a sentiment.    
  






My oldest son comes over quite frequently and I put aside any of the cards I made from the previous week and have him critique them.  He then puts them in order of his favorite to least favorite.  This one failed... why? "Mom, candies do not fall out of a jar like that" and I told him "My jars do".  But since it didn't make it to the AHSC challenge, I decided to fill it in as candies would fall from a jar.    Twisted Sister from Double Trouble was here visiting this past weekend and she suggested to mail this card to him with the change.  So off it went in the mail as a Valentine Day card... I know it will go in his collection of homemade cards and maybe it will then become a favorite.

Taco 'Bout Awesome - Double Trouble #48 with AHSC #503

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #48 "Say Cheese," something that makes you smile" using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #353, our partner for this sketch challenge, and including Twisted Sister's optional twist "cheese comfort foods".  This is a Sneak Peek for the 2nd week of our Challenge using AHSC #353, so if you chose this sketch it cannot be posted until January 27th.   


Oh my, I had so much fun with this challenge.  "Say Cheese" makes me think of cameras,  phones and selfies... which all make you smile.  I chose an iPhone's camera and created a selfie... an adorable little girl standing in front a Taco Bell fast-food diner.  The Taco Bell was clipart found on the computer which was resized, printed and adhered to the screen of the iPhone.  The little girl was stamped, colored and adhered under the Taco Bell.  





My daughter mentioned she has a stamp set that had taco sentiments so I borrowed it and not only was there a sentiment but an adorable Chihuahua dressed up with a taco.  So I stamped two Chihuahuas, colored and pieced one of them in the selfie and the other was in full carrying the taco sentiment.  As far as the wave in the sketch what better then to stamp bones in the wave; but it needed some depth.  So stamped and cut with my Brother Scan and Cut and adhered them with 3D thin foam tape over the stamped image to give it dimension.  

Well, I can't stop smiling and I hope that you all find this makes you smile too.  


Join us in this fun challenge. Our theme is "Say Cheese" and second week of this Challenge, Sketch #353 optional, begins Monday, January 27th, and closes on Sunday, February 2nd.

Capture the Moment - Heart2Heart and MoJo Monday

This card was made for Heart2Heart theme challenge "All Spruced Up" using the MoJo Monday Sketch Challenge #529. Mojo Monday have all the measurements of the panels on their sketch so it makes it easy, no guessing.  And then all you have to do is get your inspiration from the papers you use and add some embellishments.  Chose to use the bird design paper in CTMH "Spruced Up" paperpack for my focal point, cut the panels in other design papers from the same packet, for the coordinating colors, and layered all with sangria cardstock.  Dies were used for my embellishment of fern and branches and berries added with Nuvo drops.  Also used Nuvo drops on the branch in the focal point and added a sentiment above it.

Get Well Soon - Color Dare #378 "Love of Color"

This is my design card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #378 - Love of Color using Freshly Made Sketches #419. Cut the background paper and cardstock as in the sketch and then layered with sage cardstock.  Wanted something to take up the large panel and chose a poppy flower die.  Cut two of the large flower in saffron cardstock, light and dark side, pieced the stem and adhered with 3D thin foam tape between the layers.  Cut the smaller bud, pieced the stem and then adhered both of the poppies on the blue panel.  Added the ribbon across the bottom along with a sentiment.
