Cake and Ice Cream - Color Dare #458 "6-Pack" and Double Trouble Challenge #91

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #91 "Scrappers Trail Mix" partnering with ColorMyHeart Color Dare #458 choosing at least three colors from the 6-pack Color Board.  Scrappers Trail Mix can be a combination of patterns (polka dots, plaids, checkers, stripes, etc.) or just use one, it's your choice.  

My choice of colors were all except Blue Belle.  Strips were cut from a black and white variety packet of design papers from Paper Smooches, adhered with tape on white cardstock, angular, for the background. The images were all stand-alone dies and were cut using a variety of colors.  Sentiments were stamped on the clouds and then the images were all adhered to the background using regular and thin foam tape for dimension.  


Double Trouble Our Things 1, 2 and 3 sure bring on some wierd combinations but I like to challenge them all; however, you have the flexibility of doing just Thing 1 to create a Holiday card "Christmas in July" to be eligible for our random draw. 

For those that really like more of a challenge may want to include Twisted Sister's optional twist to "Use Color Board from ColorMyHeart Color Dare #458" and enter our partner's challenge... and you will be rewarded addtional chances at Double Trouble's random draw.

Hugs - Color Dare #456 "Color Wheel - 2 Colors on Opposite Sides"

Here is my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #456, using 2 Colors on the opposite sides of the Color Wheel (Yellow "Lemon" and Purple "Pansy").  I've seen many beautiful CTMH Butterfly background cards on Facebook so decided to do something with sponging the colors on both the die cut and also the background cardstock using Lemon and Pansy ink pads.  

Sponge, Sponge, Sponge and more Sponge. Adhered the Sponged Butterfly Background die cut to my sponged background and then did a little more sponging on the edges.  On the inside... some more sponging on the inside corner and border with Lemon and Pansy and used a Butterfly Ribbon die for a stencil. Added 3D thin foam tape to the underside near body of each butterfly, bone curled the wings and added liquid glass to the bodies.  Cut Hugs sentiment in both yellow and pansy for shadowing and adhered direct to Butterfly background die cut.

You're Purrr-fect - Double Trouble Challenge #90 "Are You Kitten Me"

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #90 "Are You Kitten Me" using a kitty image and Twisted Sister's optional twist of using a pun sentiment.  Our partner for this challenge is 2CraftyCritterCrazies so if your project includes a Critter simply pop on over to their challenge and enter there too.  

Had the purrr-fect image from one of the Copic Classes held at a local paper crafting store back in 12/2/2017... think it's time to create a card?  

Fussy-cut the Gorjuss Girl Image (which had been colored in class) printed a copy of colored image and fussy-cut the hat and the kitty and adhered with 3D thin foam tape on original colored image for dimension.  The full image was then adhered with 3D thin foam tape to the striped design paper.  Stamped sentiment on word tag and adhered direct to striped paper.  

Still needed something more on the right-hand side... stamped, colored, fussy-cut and added small loose strings on each yarn ball which also appeared to be balloons.  

On the inside of the card... a paw print was stamped on the right-hand border and also stamped another pun sentiment at bottom "Happy Purr-Day".  

"Mew and Your Paw-some Pet" Special Random Draw

CLEO's Not Kitten Around... Special Random Draw - $50 CTMH (Close to My Heart) Products of Your Choice. Cleo wants to celebrate International Cat Day with her fur-ends (kittens and puppies) for this Special Random Draw. (See our Guidelines for prize eligibility.)  

We need to have at least 25 paw-ticipants.   You must be a paw-ticipant in Thing 1 "Trouble Maker's" Challenge #90 If you have multiple fur-babies you may enter either a group photo or a photo of each but you will be counted as one paw-ticipant for the special draw.  

To enter... All you need to do is take a photo of mew (you) and your paw-some pet.  Put this photo in your personal blog along with your Challenge #90 post. We would love to know a little bit about your furbaby... so in your post use at least five words or more in describing your furbaby's purr-sonality.  Then enter your photo under the heading, "Mew and Your Paw-some Pet" below with direct link to your post and include your name and pet's name on title of entry.

Cleo's Purr-sonality:  Mind of her own (what cat doesn't), adorable, playful (loves her toys), sleeps a lot, skiddish, loves snacks from Chewy, needy (wants lots of attention), plays hide and seek when I say "I'm going to get you", loves playing soccer ball toss and catch with me, curious and loves my scrapbook supplies, has her own glass of water on my desk, doesn't sit on my lap but will sit on back of couch by my head or on the arm, purrs a lot. And most of all she loves her Mom and Dad as much as we love her.  

and Mischeivous... This is what I woke up to this morning... Cleo looking down 
at me from one of the pedestals on our headboard. She ignored me when I asked
 her to get down and she said "Are You Kitten Me?"
