Double D Anything with Hearts

Anything with Hearts is our new challenge at Double D Challenge Blog.  This mood board by Dar is a perfect inspiration piece. I was drawn to all for pictures, but decided upon the tree with the heart notch.  


 I started with some Mintay designer paper and  added the Impression Obsession tree ring and shaded with distress inks. I have this cute heart die with some squirrels from Tutti designs that I thought was a perfect addition to my design. Some dogwood flowers left from another project  completed the design.  Sometimes you have a vision of a card in your mind that does not turn out to be what you wanted and other times it turns out better.  This card is one of those better times for me and I needed that boost to my mojo. 

We hope you will link up with us at  Double D Challenge Blog =. The team is always inspired by what YOU create.

Dies R Us Dogwood Birthday

The Dies R Us Challenge Blog has a new challenge starting today.  It is an Anything Goes Challenge so you can have some fun creating your favorite type of card for any occasion.  Just remember to use a die from one of the many companies that is sold at the Dies R Us Store

For some reason, I tend to think of hearts as just For Valentine's Day, but it is really just another geometrical shape like a circle, square, rectangle, or triangle so I decided to make a birthday card from a pretty heart die from Impression Obsession. 

I started with a Lawn Fawn scalloped frame and backed it with some pretty foiled paper from Honey Bee Stamps.  The floral heart from Impression Obsession came next with the happy birthday, which is a combination from Sue Wilson and Karen Burniston added on top.  A few Elizabeth Craft Dogwoods completed the card. We hope you will join us for this challenge at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog

Double D Valentine Love

             Today at Double D we are celebrating

               Valentine Love and we would LOVE to see

                                                                your Valentine Love creations.

Valentine Love is a perfect challenge with Valentine day only 11 days away.  Diane created this Fabulous Mood Board for us this time.  I took my inspiration from the wreath and the pink drinks.


I uses different shades  of green distress ink on water color paper.  I cut the Adriana wreath by Poppy Stamps three times then applied some Nuvo Drops on each of the berries.  While they dried I layered up the front of the card with a layer of black and some decorative paper, I cut the rest of my pieces for the card and went through my flower stash for my pink daisy.  The Bird House is from IO and so are the small hearts.  The Hugs is an old die from Cheery Lynn. I played with the arrangement a bit until I got one I liked and then glued the pieces together.

We hope you will take some inspiration from the board and join us for the Double D Challenge Valentine Love and a chance to win this Poppy Stamp die.

Dies R Us Butterfly Friend

A new Anything Goes Challenge starts today at Dies R Us Challenge Blog .  Just remember to use a die from any of the many of the companies they sell at the store.

The butterfly, the sentiment and the frame all from Impression Obsession. I have not used the butterfly in a long time.  I  don't know why because I think it is beautiful.  I decided to keep the card simple and let the butterfly steal the show. I was not planning to use the purple sequin but it was on my desk so  I put it on the butterfly and liked it so it stayed. 

We hope you will join us for this fun challenge and a chance to win a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Store.  As usual the team has done some wonderful inspiration pieces for you at Dies R Us Challenge Blog .
