Double D Challenge Things That Fly

Time for another fun challenge at DOUBLE D CHALLENGE BLOG.  It is all about things that fly. Here is the fun, colorful mood board. I took my inspiration from the black and white balloons. Looks like a party to me.

Here is my card. This is a clean and simple card for me. Look at all that white space. I used the Balloon Adventure Pop Up stamp and die set from Stamping Up and a Memory Box die cut for the sides.

Look at the wonderful Memory Box die that one random participant in the challenge will receive. I know you will want to see all the inspiration from the design team DOUBLE D CHALLENGE BLOG.   Be sure to link up something that flies in the gallery. We are always inspired by YOU.


Dies R Us Borders / Edges

We have been getting so many gorgeous designs from all of you at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog so we are excited to see what you will do with this challenge. I posted two cards today and they are so different. The one at Double D is clean and simple and this is anything but that.

I started with white card stock and embossed it with a Swiss dot embossing folder. I took another piece of white card and die cut it with Sue Wilson's Centarus border on both ends. I topped that with another  design from Sue Wilson,Toranto popping up the center a bit from the largest die cut. Then I used the sentiment from Sue Wilson's Ornate Ovals. Various already cut greenery furnishes the background for the homemade Susan's Garden dogwood flowers and a Memory Box butterfly. You can find these fabulous dies at the Dies R Us  STORE

Dies R Us Something New

The Challenge at DIES R US is Something New. I have so many new things that I got for Christmas that I have not used yet so this was a fun challenge.

I started with some PTI paper that I got on sale and added the beautiful Tutti rose frame (a brand new purchase). The daisy is a Spellbinders' die that I have had forever.  All these dies are available at the Dies R US store. 

So grab a new purchase and create something fabulous and link it up at DIES R US  Challenge Blog. We love seeing what you create.

Double D Think Spring


Isn't this the happiest MOOD BOARD. I smile every time I see it. I liked all the frames but settled in on the pail of tulips.


I have been practicing with my tulip layering stamp from PTI so I grabbed a few that were better than others and added them to my IO pail. A Tim Holtz brick embossing folder to give it a bit or the rustic look and a PTI trellis, a gift from a special friend, and a PTI Happy sentiment finished the card. This is a birthday card whose favorite flower is tulips so I bought this stamp and die set just for her.

Here is the prize for one lucky random draw. 

As usual the DD Design Team has some wonderful inspiration for you. We are looking forward to seeing what you create for this beautiful board.
