Double D Winter Blues

The new theme at Double D Challenge Blog is called Winter Blues.  I know it is called Blues because of the shades of  blue but to me all these pictures convey a feeling of peace and we all need a good solid dose of peace. The pictures are a good jumping off point, but my inspiration was the snow and trees. 

This is a really simple card to do because the die does all the work. I sponged the background with distress oxide inks and spritzed with water.  The die cut does all the rest of the work.  I added some yellow stars to the night sky.  

Join us for this fun challenge at Double D Challenge Blog for a chance to win this fun die set.

Double D Pine Branches and Pine Cones

Dine has creaed a fabulous Mood board for us at Double D Challenge Blog.  Dig out your pine cone, pine tree, and pine branch stamps and dies and play along with us. 

I  started  with some wood grained designer paper from Elizabeth Crafts and stamped snowflakes with Versamak ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  The pine branches are from Tutti Designs and the pine cones from Gina Marie.  Tutti Designs pine branches come with pine cones too but I had these in my stash already made so I used them.  The white berries and poinsettia come from Sue Wilson's Garland die. 


Here is a chance to get another Christmas card done and a chance to win this Cottage Cutz die. The team has some fabulous inspiration for you on the Double D Challenge Blog
