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.

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.
