Double D Sunflowers

Nothing reminds me of  summer more than sunflowers.  Look at all the beauriful sunflowers on the mood board. Can you guess what the challenge is at Double D Challenge Blog?

I love this Adriana die by Poppy Stamps. I cut the back from some Swiss dot yellow paper and then added the die that I cut in white, I Stamped the IO sentiment and then embossed it  in gold embossing powder and cut it out using a Spellbinders oval  and sponged with some distress ink.  The sun flower is also a Spellbinders die that I have had for years.  I added some color with copics and filled the center with fine black flower soft that I bought years ago for making sunflowers. Some greenery and my signature Sue Wilson white berriesfinished my project.  We hope to see your entries on the  Double D Challenge Blog.  One entry is selected randomly to win this fabulous prize.

Dies R Us Baby It's Hot Outside

Time for another fun challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog. We want you to think warm colors like oranges,yellows and reds.  I started by using water colors in shades of red, yellow and orange to create my background.  I also used some metalic gold  to give it some shimmer. I framed that with the Impression Obsession Woodgrained Frame and added the palm tree from Sue Wilson.   That panel went on a white card base.

Double D Butterflies

Our theme at Double D Challenge Blog this  month involves Butterflies. Look at the Mood board to see what inspires you.   


I tried my version of  a clean and simple approach for this card. I replaced my traditional flower with a butterfly cut from gold glitter paper.

The frame is from a Frantic Stamper all in one frame ,and the sentiment comes from Impression Obsession. Some greenry nd a  Memory Box Blushing  Flower Branch finis out the design.
You need to visit the Double D Challenge Blog and see the wonderful cards the team has created. They are all so different and so beautuful.  If you link up with with a project, you will have a chance to win this butterfly die set.

Dies R Us Just Desserts

The challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog this time is all about dessert.

My favorite dessert is ice cream in almost any flavor or just vanilla with fresh fruit.  I decided upon  chocolate ice cream with strawberries for my dessert.  I cut the glass from clear acetate which did not show up as well as I had hoped.

I just got this Impression Obsession Large Frame and I can tell it is going to be one of my go to dies.  I love how it framed my sundae.  Instead of my traditional flowers, I used a couple Impression Obsession strawberries that I colored with Copics.  A few prills on my ice cream added some texture and look like sprinkles. Instead of using the cherry that comes with the set I added a smaller strwberry from the IO strawberry basket.
