Peace on Earth Christmas Jar


Time for a new challenge #6 at Peace on Earth Challenge BlogOnce again we have an amazing Mood Board for your inspiration.  Use it if you like, but as long as your project is Christmas themed you can enter it into the challenge. By now, many of you have completed most, if not all, of the cards you will send this year, but if you play along with us every week, you can complete 24 cards for next year's cards.  


My card was inspired by the mason jar picture on the bottom right.  I chose a Poppy Stamp frame and backed it with some wood grained paper. The mason jar is filled with some greenery from Elizabeth Crafts and I used some red Nuvo drops, a gift from Darlene and Diane, for the berries. A little twine around the jar and a snowflake completed the design.  If you can see little white dots on the jar,  they came from the die cut oval. 

We hope you join us for this challenge at  Peace on Earth Challenge Blog.

Double D Lots of White

The  has a new challenge and a new Mood Board for your inspiration at DOUBLE D CHALLENGE BLOG . 


Your challenge is to use Lots of White on your card.  It is a perfect challenge to try a CAS card, white on white card, or mostly white with a pop of color. I chose white on white with a hint of green. I loved all the pretty white flowers on the board so I used that for inspiration too. 

I started my card with a 51/2 inch square card base and a 51/4  inch square layer.  I used Poppy Stamp pierced oval frames and cut the top layer then ran it through a Spellbinders embossing folder. Some Memory Box flowers were tucked behind the oval and backed with vellum. The Just for You sentiment is a Sue Wilson die and the butterfly is from Memory box.  A few pearls and some flowers from my stash and the card was complete. We hope you will join us at DOUBLE D CHALLENGE BLOG   for this last challenge of 2021.  

Here is the prize for this challenge.  

Dies R Us Snowy Night

Welcome to the last challenge of 2021 at Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  Our theme is Anything Goes. This is another example of the die doing all the work.  I backed the Amy Design oval with some black designer paper and used a Lawn Fawn frame around it and topped that with the Poppy Stamps Tall curved border.  This card would be easy to mass produce and can be either a winter or Christmas Card.  A Sponged background would be pretty behind the oval and you could add some woodland creatures.

Peace on Earth Red Gingham

The first Sunday in December means that there is another challenge at Peace on Earth Challenge Blog

I love this fabulous Mood Board. 


I took my inspiration from the red and white gingham pillow. When the card is folded it looks like a gatefold card that lets you peek at the inside. 

I used the the Poppy Stamp Oval frame fold for the base.  I have included a link to a video sharing many ways to use this frame here  at Poppy Stamps Oval Fold Frame.  I also used Poppy Stamp Scallop Tall Curve Border.  The JOY greeting is from Spellbinders and the scalloped frame in the center is from Lawn Fawn.  Here is another video using this die to make a FLIP CARD using the same die. We hope you will join us for this challenge at Peace on Earth Challenge Blog

We hope you will join us for this challenge at Peace on Earth Challenge Blog. We get so many beautiful entries.

Double D Joy


Thanksgiving is over, the turkey is gone and now the Christmas Season can get into full swing. Our Challenge at Double D Challenge Blog is Christmas JOY(the word JOY MUST be on your creation.  We have a wonderful Mood Board for your inspiration. 


When I made my entry, I was not looking at the Mood board and just remembered we had to use the word joy.  I have this wonderful Spellbinders Joy die so I chose that and made my card.  When I came back to post it, I noticed all the colors and patterns on the mood board.  Alas, my card had none of the pretty patterns or colors.  I am officially claiming my Oldtimers disease for this pale version of the Mood Board.    

If you join us for this challenge you have a chance to win this Joy stamp and Joe die. 

The team has some wonderful inspiration for you so go on over to Double D Challenge Blog and be inspired.
