Double D Saying Hello

What an amazing mood board from Dar at DOUBLE D CHALLENGE BLOG  I just got a new flower die from Dies R Us Store that was perfect for the lower left hand block.  I liked the grey wood toned background so I started the  pattern and created a wood toned background using my Score Pal. I dry embossed over the wood background with an embossing folder and added some darker ink. One of my older Cheery Lynn dies got some love and was added onto the  background. Next came the hyacinths from Elizabeth crafts. A Karen Burniston Hello die was added to the finished flower bouquet. 

We hope you will join us for this challenge,  If you do you could win  this fun Hello die. 
Go visit the DOUBLE D CHALLENGE BLOG and then link up your Hello Design.

Dies R Us Wild Thing

Time for another challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog  We are asking you to use some sort of animal on your project.  I decided to make another valentine using the Memory Box Squirrel Collage and and some Impression Obsession dies.  I cut the heart out in white and red.  I used the inside negative of the white heart and cut the squirrle collage from the center. I inlaid that into the center of the heart  the  backed it with some red card stock. Then I placed that inside the white card stock that I had cut the white heart from. I added a hugs sentiment and an XO border to complete my valentine.

Double D Hearts

A new month and a new challenge at Double D Challenge Blog. It is all about hearts. Diane has created this fabulous Mood board for us.  I don't know about you but I love gingham and Swiss Dots. 

I decided to make a side step card for this challenge. It has been awhile since I have done one of these. I used a Spellbinders die for the heart and key.  The rest of the dies are from Impression Obsession.  I had to smile because when I showed my husband some of the cards I made for Valentine's Day he asked me what XO meant. Is that a girl thing? 

If you play along with us for this challenge,  you can win this fun heart die. I love how the Dar and Diane always have a prize that is perfect for the challenge.

Impression Obsession Have a Heart Challenge

If this card looks familiar, it is because I made it and  posted it for the DRU Challenge,but it works for the Impression Obsession Have a Heart Challenge so I wanted to post it on their blog too.

These are the dies I used for the challenge.

Dies R Us Hearts, Love, Valentine


I was making a card for the IO challenge. Since I wanted to use the  IO heart flourish die, I cut it from  a piece of 51/2 by 41/4 white card stock. When I was cleaning up my desk, the negative part of the die was sitting on top of a piece of designer paper. While my IO dies were still on my desk, I decided to make another card which was perfect for the challenge at  Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  What a happy accident.  

Here are the dies I used.
