Double D Silhouettes

Time for another fun challenge at Double D Challenge Blog.

Link up and one random winner can win this prize.This time it is all about silhouettes.

Use a silhouette as the focus of your project.


I don't think there is any question about what inspired me for this challenge.  I used a few layers but for me this is CAS.  I have friends that can make CAS look fabulous... but it is not my talent. I did some sponging and used the IO bird on a branch.

I am looking forward to inspiration from you.... The design team, as usual, has done a fabulous job. Go take a look  at Double D Challenge Blog.

Dies R Us pumpkins or apples

Pumpkins and/or Apples
I live in a small farm community and I am surrounded by roadside stands that sell their homegrown produce. Strawberries, blueberries, peaches, cherries,walnuts,pecans, almonds, prunes and plums, tomatoes, cucumbers to name a few  are available.  I even have a winery and home made candy company seven minutes of my home. I live next door to a walnut orchard so after the harvest, I have permission to glean the orchard and gather enough walnuts to last until next year. We have two major pumpkin festivals in my neighborhood ans we have two fun weekends for the entire county to enjoy.   So this truck full of pumpkins is something I will be seeing from now until Halloween.

I started with a Chepo truck and filled it with some IO pumpkins.  The tree is another IO die that actually comes with a bride and groom and another tree. I just used part of the die cut from kraft card stock.  I added a little orange to the leaves. A few IO clouds and birds and a frame finished my card.

Double D Orange and White

Orange and White..that's it!
This mood board is just full of texture, dimension and sweet patterns. I love the Mood Boards that Dar and Diane provide for us. I always come away with so many ideas and have to chose one for the challenge. 

 I love the stack of pretty material tied with a bow so I used the top piece of material with the orange background and white leaves for my inspiration.  I started with Canyon Clay PTI  card stock and  topped an IO leafy background die. Then I framed it with a Lawn Fawn frame. The Sue Wilson Just a Note die was left over from another project.  An Elizabeth Craft Shasta Daisy and some IO Wheat and a couple of white dies from Sue Wilson's Festive Garland finished off this card. 

If you play along with us at Double D Challenge Blog for our orange challenge, you could win this great Cottage Cutz die.

I bought all these Dies from the Dies R Us Store

Dies R Us Anything Goes

I love cards that have a WOW factor when you open them so the Karen Burniston  Pop and Twist die is perfect for me. I made this type of card from scratch before Karen released the die set.  I cannot believe how easy it is to create the card using the die especially if you watch her video HERE.

So we hope you will join us for our Any Thing Goes Challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog
