You Are Too Cool - Double Trouble Challenge #73 with Bitten by the Bug 2

Here is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #73 "A Die-lirious Holiday Season" and partnering with Bitten By a Bug 2.  Thing 1 Trouble Maker (Me) asks you to select a favorite tool to create a Holiday project. My selection was the Cuttlebug for which I selected my new CTMH Waterfall Thin Cut... sooooo much easier than cutting and scoring a written tutorial for your waterfall.  

Then the fun began... selection of stamps for the waterfall. In my stash there were a couple penguins previously colored last year in a Copic class and never completed as a card.  These were perfect for a Holiday waterfall card, along with a cute walrus and a sentiment with snowflakes.  

One of the penguin stamps had snow already drawn in the image so to carry down the snow on the waterfall I used a Copic black multi-liner pen, drew the circles in each of the panels and added a touch of glacier ink in each. The abundance of snow falling created a couple of snowmen and sentiment sending snowman kisses on the tag.   Thing 3 Twisted Sister had an optional twist to "Tie it Up" or "Wrap It Up".  I chose to Tie It Up and put a polka-dot bow in the hole of the tab... which bows are quite a task for me, not in my comfort zone.     


I was happy with my Bow and whimsical card... hope you were too.  

Please go to Double Trouble for the detail of the challenge and enjoy the Things and Sneetches inspiration for this fun Challenge.  

Choose your favorite die or cutting tool and create a project for the Holidays.  Additional challenge use Twisted Sister's optional twist "Tie It Up" or "Wrap It Up".

I haven't done a waterfall card in years-and I forget how fun they are!!!! This is just adorable and love how you found a way to use the penguins that you had previously made as some of the waterfall images! Thanks for joining us over at BBTB2 for the challenge!

Oh my gosh, this is so CUTE! I love the color scheme you chose and those images are great. I agree...a die cut of this waterfall card is so much easier than cutting everything by hand. Thank you for joining the challenge at the Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge site. Dorlene DT BBTB2

fantastic critter card. I have not heard of a waterfall die cut, but I bet it saves time. and I have only seen waterfalls used in albums, so you gave me two surprises today. It's like getting 4 cards in one. Very nice work, happy holidays and thanks for joining our challenge at Bitten by the Bug2 - Wrap it Up.
