Double D Don't Fence Me In

 What a fun idea for a challenge and great inspiration board Dar created for us this time. I took my inspiration from several of the photos. The trellis,  picket fence, and stone pathway from  the first photo, the fall colors on the second and the trees in all of them.  

I have not done much stamping lately, but I bought these trees and stone pathway  from The Greetery and thought they would look great with some IO Dies I have had for awhile.  I made a mistake in the placement of my walkway and it looks more like a pathway to the stars, but I am sure I will learn from my mistake.  It turned out to be a colorful fall card and I have some friends that will not notice my misplaced path.  We hope you will join us for this challenge at Double D.  The team has some wonderful and original  inspiration for you so visit us Double D Challenge Blog

One randomly chosen person will win this die that is the perfect prize for this challenge.

Dies R Us One for the Boys

The challenge at the  Dies R Us Challenge Blog this time is One for the Boys.  This card was fun for me because one of my bestie guy pals has the nickname of Bear.  I am always looking for fun Bears for cards for him.  I love this IO die and it is perfect for him because he is a sweetheart of a guy. 

Nothing difficut about putting the card together, but I think it came out cute.

Double D Colorful

 If you love lots of color, this is the challenge for you.  Diane created a fabulous mood board for this colorful challenge at Double D Challenge Blog


I decided to go with a flower theme for this challenge,  A friend found four flower dies incuding the die for this iris at a garage sale and bought it for me.  I have not used any of them before but thought they would work for this challenge.  I started with a water colored background and framed it with one of the die cuts from a Frantic Stamper  frame die the cuts several frames in different patterns.  This is the second largest frame in the set. I but that on a white card base and then pit the Irises in the frame.  I finished with an old Cheery Lynn Hugs die cut that I layered several times to give it dimension. 

We hope you play along for this challenge at Double D Challenge Blog.  We all need some color in our life these days  so we hope our colorful cards will brighten your day. Play along and you might win this cute dolor die.

Dies R Us Back to School

We hope you will join us at  Dies R Us Challenge Blog  for  our back to school challenge. School will look  different in most communities this year. Some students will continue with online school while others may attend school that seems unusual. When I thought about all these changes, I decided I wanted to do a retro card. I framed a piece of black card with the IO wood grained frame to look like an old fashioned blackboard.  Then I stamped and die cut  Lawn Fawn crayons.  This was a simple card to make but I love all the elements.
