Double D Sentiment

Happy third Wednesday of the month.  The third Wednesday means a new challenge at  Double D Challenge Blog.
A sentiment must be the FOCUS of your project

I love this sentiment from Impression Obsession so that was my starting point. Since the sentiment refers to birds, I wanted to use some birds on my card.   I just got these two sweet bird dies from the Dies R Us Store  so I decided I would use them.

 I cut an aperture with a Sue Wilson die from blue card stock so I could place the gold embossed sentiment behind the aperture.  I sponged a little bit of distress ink around the sentiment. I backed the birds with some blue card stock to make the lacy parts show up better.  A few Heartfelt flowers from my stash finished my card.

                  Precious Marieke Spring Birds

We would love to see how you would make the  sentiment the STAR of your card.  We hope you will join us at   Double D Challenge Blog.

Double D Featured

A new challenge starts at Double D Challenge Blog today. And with the challenge comes another fun Mood Board.

Choose an object from the mood board and make it the 'feature' on your card.


I chose the butterfly and tulip quilt. I just got the tulip die from Penny Black and was anxious to use it.  I added some color with markers and then did a little shaping. 

I sponged the butterfly frame from Memory Box with distress ink while it was still in the die to get some color on some of the butterflies. I added a little twine around the tulips to tie it together. The DD team has some fabulous inspiration for you on the blog. We hope you will join us for this challenge at  Double D Challenge Blog.

Dies R Us Nature

It is the first of September and time for  a new challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog. The challenge this time is nature which includes so many different aspects. 
I have had this Frantic Stamper die for about five years and still love it.  I usually make two or three cards with it every year because it  creates a beautiful scene.  Trees, rabbits, birds are all included in the die for the natire challemge.   I added a moon and some snowfall to complete the winter scene  and nature challenge. 

These are the dies I used to create this nature scene. 

We hope you will join us with a nature inspired creation of your own. The DRU team is always inspired by you.
