Cute as a Button - Color Dare #349

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #349 with choice of three colors "Lilac, Peach and Raspberry" and using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #322.  Chose the softer colors for a baby card and the button dies were perfect for this sketch.  Months previous found the baby feet die at a garage sale and was just waiting for the right time to use along with the Buttons and it was just the right size for the element in the corner The sentiment was from Cricut Design Space which I had purchased previously.

You're Turtley Awesome - Color Dare #348

This is my ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #348 TicTacToe "Into the Wild" color palette (Column 1: Sapphire, New England, Fern + Linen and Mink) using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #321.  These turtles were a pre-printed image on specialty paper for Copic coloring...perfect for the image on the sketch.  Used Copic Sketch alcohol-based brush pens in a variety of colors to come closest to match Column 1 colors, fussy-cut image and adhered with 3D thin foam tape on a Sapphire background design paper.  The sentiment was printed on Vellum using Cricut Design Space text.

Beach - Double Trouble Challenge #31

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #31 "Dry/Heat Embossing" and partnering with Pile it On Challenge #  "Transportation/Vacation/Holiday" theme, using the Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #412.  Decided to use my Cricut Design Space program to put together a beach theme for Vacation/Holiday, Dry Embossing and Twisted Sister's optional twist of a road sign.  A lot of piecing together but pleased with the result. 

Wasn't quite sure how I was going to work in the embossing; but looked through my folders and found one with long grass that reminded me of the beaches in the Outerbanks, and of course the fences separating properties.    






THING 1: Double Trouble
says, "It's time to hit the road."
It's a "dry heat" here in Arizona so include dry and/or heat embossing using the bonus theme at Pile It On "Transportation and/or Vacation" themed project. You can stop here and you have already met this challenge so Pile It On.

Or, if you included Twisted Sister's optional twist below you will receive another chance at our random draw.



THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "From Easy Street to Broadway I usually take the scenic route. I always have my GPS so I don't take the wrong road." Include a “sign” on your card that you’d see in your holiday/vacation travels.

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random prize draw if you include a sign.







THING 2: Double Dare
says, "Pile It On's theory is to create a project using More than One Challenge." So, if you have created a project for our challenge you will have already reached their requirement by entering your project in Pile It On Challenge #155 "Transportation and/or Vacation" theme.

Check out the Design Team blogs and entrants at Double Trouble and Pile It On to see what other challenges may meet your project and then Pile It On your post too.

Thank You For All You Do - Color Dare #347

This is my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #347 using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #320.  Decided to do a CAS card and follow the sketch without too many changes.   Needed a couple practice runs on using Waffle Flower's multi-layered stamps for the butterfly...my practice runs paid off and final was much better than my first attempts.  Anxious to use this with a variety of colors.

Love - Color Dare #346

This is my DT project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #346 Love of Color (Using all the Colors on the Board) and combined it with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #319.  When I looked at this color palette along with the sketch it shouted out all the colors needed for a beautiful floral wreath.  

Selected a stitched tag for my floral wreath, chose a scribble circle for my wreath base, stamped the sentiment inside the circle, die cut/layered many small florals, leaves and butteflies which were adhered randomly on the wreath base.  Adhered tag on the Smoothie colored design paper, die cut a bow, adhered at the top of the tag along with a butterfly and then adhered this panel to a Sapphire design paper background.  Added Wink of Stella to the flowers and tiny sparkles to each of the flowers.

Oh Joy It's Your Birthday - Double Trouble Challenge #30 "Background Technique"

This card is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #30 "Stencil/Emboss Techniques for background" and if you include Twisted Sister's optional twist "include a farm animal" you would then be eligible to enter your project in our partner's blog challenge 2 Crafty Critter Crazies "Critters".  

This was such a fun card to put together.  The barn is a cricut cut that appealed to me because it had pockets for a gift card.  The cricut die cut tags were modified using a piggy stamp from MFT and added several of their sentiments on the tags.  


Decided to use stencils for my background which were ordered some time ago and though the small cloud and rolling hills stencils were just what I needed.  Colors were sponged on and then adhered the barn and animals using 3D thin foam tape between each layer.  The most time-consuming was putting the barn together, but I'm so happy with it.  








THING 1:  Touble Maker 
Use a stencil technique in your project using spritz, paint, sponge, etc. OR if you don't have a stencil use an embossing folder. You can make a stencil using a die or cutting machine. In other words, no design paper for your background.
THING 3: Twisted Sister
Sing along with Old McDonald (song) and include a farm critter on your project. Even if your farm critter is not in the song, we can always add another verse!

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random prize draw if you include a "farm critter".


THING 2: Double Dare
If you have included a farm critter you can enter your project into 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #27.
