Happy Holidays - Double Trouble Challenge #43

This is my DT project for Double Trouble #43 "Bring on the Glitz" and including Twisted Sister's optional Twist to "include a snow person" and then share it with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge # 483 "Snowmen's theme challenge", starting November 18th through December 1st.  







The whole card was made with Glitz and Glitter paper and embellishments except for the sentiment and card base. The photo doesn't do it justice but the sun shining through my office window gives it quite a sparkle.  

Please join us at Double Trouble Challenge #43 and have fun while singing along with Frosty the Snowman.

Retirement - Color Dare #369

This is my DT card for the ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #369 using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #342.  


This Board gave me many choices...however finally decided TicTacToe Column 3 "Toffee, Glacier, Espresso" for an excellent combination for a masculine retirement card.  Chose a focal point of a sea vessel and how cool would that be for retirement...sailing out to sea.  I've had the wood grain embossing dies for awhile, thought this would be a good background for my focal point, brushed on some glacier to bring out the woodgrain, layered and adhered some with 3D thin foam tape.  The ship was added to a stitched die using expresso cardstock, added another scalloped frame in glacier and both adhered with 3D foam tape.  Die cut the sentiment and glued in bottom right-hand corner.  






Please visit each of these challenges to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges and maybe you can combine challenges too. Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks, so please join us and also check out our previous Challenge #368 Inspiration Board.

Hello Pumpkin - Color Dare #368 and Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Day 8 - A.M. - 2019 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
(CLBH #1095)

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #368 "Inspirational Board".  Cut three die cuts of the pumpkin and vine (Chocolate, New England Ivy and Orange), cut and pieced the green leaves in between the orange and chocolate pumpkins.  Tried several design papers for the background and the purple just struck me as being an excellent contrast and brought in the grape color from the inspirational board.  And what goes with Pumpkin, you said it, Pumpkin Spice Latte or Coffee To Go please.  Sentiment was stamped with chocolate ink on Kraft paper and layered with the same design paper as the pumpkins.

Told
you I would be back with the To Go Cup with a Christmas design...stamped on white cardstock, colored with Copic Sketch brush pens in variable colors.  Found a green glittery paper that had the silver zip strip on top for the background and cut a snowflake border in white.  The sentiment and coffee steam was stamped with versa mark and then heat embossed with silver powder.  Cup was adhered beneath it with 3D thin foam tape.

(CLBH #825)


The background is made with Washi Tape that I've had for a couple years and never used.  So, now I have used half of the roll and love it as my background.  The hedgehog was stamped on Kraft paper, colored with Copic pens and fussy-cut. The blue looked so nice against the brown I decided to color the latte cup with the same colors.  Both the hedgehog and cup were adhered to the background with 3D thin foam tape for dimension.  Sentiment stamped with Chocolate and layered with blue trim.  I was super happy on how this card turned out.
