Double D Colors of Summer


Time is moving so quickly this summer.  It is the second Wednesday of the month and time for a new challenge at Double D Challenge Blog Here is our colorful Mood Board for the challenge.


My approach to this challenge was different for this challenge.  I looked at the colors and then went through my papers.  I picked the blue and orange paper because of the colors of the beach balls and cool pops. It also reminded me of all the swirls in the string on shells. 

I used this fabulous balloon stamp and die from Stampin' Up.  It is one of my go to birthday sets.  It is so easy to create this wow factor.  Check our the colorful entries from the team at  Double D Challenge Blog the create your own Colors of Summer entry.  If you enter these Nuvo inks could be yours.

Dies R Us Noel

Today is the 15th so another Anything Goes Challenge begins at Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  I am trying to get a head start on Christmas cards this year so I decided to pull some of my favorite dies together for another holiday card. Nothing to difficult about this card.  I added a bit more texture with some embossing and some dimension with several layers.  The glimmer paper for the Noel adds some shine that is not noticeable in the picture. 

I used these dies for the card.

Double D Summer Gingham

     Gingham is always so fresh and pretty.  This Double D Challenge mood bord has so many fabulous colors of gingham and our challenge to you is to use gingham on your card. 


I made this little note book for my great niece's (Samantha) birthday. I decided to personalize it with her name and since her family loves gnomes,  I added these little gnomes all dressed in gingham.  The inside has a notebook and a pen is on the side.

Dies R Us Nature Seascape

A new challenge begins today at Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  the theme is Anything Goes using at least one die from a company that DRU sells.  I chose the Tutti Design Coral Reef for my card.  I cut it in white and from some water color paper that I sponged with distress ink and spritzed with water.  I saved the negative parts of the die cut and stamped a sentiment from Impression Obsession in the center. The white die cut was then inlaid between the negative parts.  All that was layered on a teal card base.  A few enamel dots finished the card.
