I found a new challenge! Anyone who visits my blog or Instagram, knows how much I LOVE card challenges! I just love how they get my mind thinking of different things and stretching me to use the challenge in my card making. This one is called the Double Trouble challenge. It not only gives one challenge – it gives 2 and 3! It really gets me thinking of different things to make at least 2 of the challenges work with whatever card I’m on.
Thing 1 says to use at least 3 colors, 2 pattern papers and 1 sentiment or image
2 pattern papers is the thing that stretched me the most here! I have pattern paper, I like pattern paper, but I don’t tend to use it very often on my cards! But I did it for this. Here is my card
I used the “Baker” stamp set from Pink and Main and the layout was inspired by Thing 2 of the challenge! Which comes from another card challenge site – which I had never heard of – Try Stampin’ on Tuesday
And of course those cute little ingredients and whisk have to make something…So when the recipient opens the card – there’s a cupcake! Sprinkles and all
It was a very fun challenge to take and I look forward to getting in on “Double Trouble” again
Also – I’ve made a new goal for myself. Every time I stamp a card, I need to either stamp 2 of the same card or else stamp another card with that same set before I put it away. So here is my second card with this cute “Baker” stamp set
My sister owns her own bakery and it is amazing how fast she goes through mixing bowls, cookie sheets, mixing spoons and whisks and ingredients!
They definitely stack up like this and more in that fabulous kitchen of hers. And everything that comes out of it is positively delicious! So I thought of her the entire time I created these cards
So I think I’ll be giving them to her!
Have a wonderful Sunday tomorrow 🙂
