Peace on Earth Challenge 10

Time for another challenge at Peace on Earth Challenge Blog. I  love the snowy Mood Board

I chose the window on the bottom left as my inspiration.  

I used an Altenew wood panel embossing folder and sponged some weatherd wood distress ink on it.  I adheared that to a black card base.  The window is a Poppy Stamp die that I bought years ago and have not used for ages.  It was fun to pull it out again. a small candle from Joy craft and some bitty flowers and greenery from my stash finishes this design.  We hope you will join us for this  Peace on Earth Challenge

Double D Shades of Pink


The Mood Board at  Double D Challenge Blog says it all...think pink. 

I decided to use an Altenew layering stencil for this PINK design.  I chose a pink card base with a lighter pink panel.  I used a Poppy Stamp oval frame to cut a center  aperture and backed it with some PTI paper from my stash.  I stenciled the flower in shades of pink and green from Altenew.  I stacked the Cheery Lynn Hugs die three times for the sentiment. The centers of the flowers should have been a darker shade to get the full effect of the dimension of the layered flower.  I'll remember that next time. 

One lucky participant will win this cute Impression Obsession Die.  We hope you will join us at  Double D Challenge Blog

Dies R Us Valentine Love

February is the month that we think about loved ones and send our Valentine wishes.  Dies R Us is sponsoring another Valentine/Love Challenge.  We would love to see some of your Valentine creations. 

I started with a pink card base and the Lawn Fawn Scalloped rectangles.  I used some PTI paper that has been in my stash for sometime to create the background  I love how it looks like the bear is sitting in a field of flowers. I used some dies from Impression Obsession Love Words to finish the card.

Peace on Earth Challenge #9


The Design Team at  Peace on Earth Challenge Blog has done a fabulous job, as always with this Mood Board.  I love the pale pinks in the board paired with the white so I took inspiration from that along with the trees in the top right and bottom left. 

This is one of the dies that does the work for you. It is the Studio Light  Christmas Shape Tree Essentials.  I bought it from the Dies R Us Store when they offered a special promotion on European Dies.  The DP is from PTI.  I used it along with pink glitter paper that I have had for years. 

We hope you will join us at  Peace on Earth Challenge Blog for this challenge.  You inspire us.!!

Double D Hearts

This cheery mood board for the Double D Challenge Blog makes me happy. I love the gingham, the hearts,  and the red and white details.    

I  decided to keep this simple with a gingham background  and Impression Obsession heart and  Impression Obsession Love Words.  I have so many dies and some of them I have only used once, but this scalloped frame from Lawn Fawn makes it onto several cards each month.  After framing my panel,  I put it on a white card base. 

PLEASE  come join us at Double D Challenge Blog where one lucky winner will get this pretty heart die.

Dies R Us Valentine Love

The challenge at Dies R Us Challenge Blog this time is called Valentine Love.  I took a piece of Red Gingham and cut out the words from Impression Obsession Love Words.  When I got the set, I did not cut them apart so I  cut all the words in one pass through my big shot. I knew I wanted to inlay the the words so I cut the die again in red and inlaid the letters in the gingham paper.  I put that on a white card base then added the Impression Obsession Heart Loops.  I ended up making three different cards by using this technique. 

Here is one of the other cards.  

We hope you will join us for this fun challenge and a chance to win a gift certificate at the Dies R Us Store
