Happy Winter!

Happy Monday! I think most of us are all experiencing some colder temperatures – is feeling like winter is on its way! My card today goes right along with it too

This card is for the new challenge up at Double Trouble

Thing 1 wants to see you mix it up! Add lots of patterns and texture! I did a couple different pattern papers as well as some dry embossing

The layout is inspired by the sketch created by our challenge partner Try Stampin On Tuesday.

I used Catherine Pooler stamps and dies for my design. I love the Christmas foliage along with the snowflakes!

With a few pearl embellishments, my card was finished

But I wasn’t done! Try Stampin on Tuesday also has a twist to do some paper piecing. So i made another card using the sketch again but included the twist!

Again it goes along with the mixed patterns that Thing 1 wants to see. I also used Catherine Pooler dies on this one

I loved making both! Thanks for stopping by to see them. We hope you’ll play along!

Happy Thanksgiving mum

Today I have a mini slimline card featuring some sweet products by Kat Scrappiness. My favorite is when all the mums come out in the Fall and add beautiful Autumn colors to my porch! I wanted to make a simple, yet pretty card that featured a mum

This stamp set by KS is not actually a mum though! This is the Oopsie Daisy set and is a beautiful layering daisy. But I used the pumpkin orange color to make it look like a mum!

And that darling quilted background die – isn’t it perfection as the backdrop? I love the Kat Scrappiness mini slimline products so much. With a few embellishments and a touch of pattern paper, this Thanksgiving mum card was complete

Thanks for stopping by today! See you again soon

Warm wishes

Hello! I’m here today to share a card that I made to play along with The Coffee Lover’s Blog hop!

I’m not a coffee drinker but my whole house loves hot chocolate! So I made a little cup for a warm wishes card

That darling little cocoa cup and those tiny holy leaves and berries are die cuts by Sizzix. I put glossy accents on the berries and on the heart to give them some fun, shiny dimension

At Double Trouble, we love supporting and playing along with other challenges blogs! So the Things are up to the fun with this one too! Be sure to head there and link up your cute coffee/cocoa creation for a fun chance at some blog candy as well!

Thing 1 wants to see your coffee and cocoa creations. Thing 3 wants to see a coffee pun. I didn’t really have pun so my “warm wishes” had to do for my sentiment

I did the ombre effect on the tag using alcohol markers. All the fun dies and embellishments pulled a fun card together revolving around that one tiny cocoa cup

Thanks for stopping by! Can’t wait to see what caffeinated creations show up in the gallery!

Boot full of sunflowers

Double Trouble is back again this week with another fun challenge. Let’s see all the orange, yellow, and green!

Thing 3 has a twist that goes perfectly with those colors – use sunflowers!

I used a set by Close to My Heart for this one, and I just love how the coordinating die for the boot cuts a little slit in the top so that you can tuck the sunflower bunch in!

I was about to put a sentiment under the green bow, but I decided I kind of liked it better without a sentiment! I really like having cards on hand like that so that it can be used for any kind of note

If you make a card using these twists, be sure to also enter your card in at our challenge partner’s blog! This time around, it’s Inspiration Station. Can’t wait to see the fun cards! Thanks for stopping to see mine.

Little bear Merry Christmas

Happy Halloween and a new Double Trouble Challenge! Today starts a Something Anything Everything week – which we know is a favorite!

The optional twist is to include a critter. My card features this cute little Christmas bear from My Favorite Things

I chose to do a crisp, clean, and simple look for this one. I am crazy about tags on cards so it was fun to do that here too!

The Double Dare optional twist is to partner with any of our previous challenge partners. I chose the Color Dare. I love tic-tac-toe type of challenges and that’s what this one is.

I went with the top row across

This is my first Christmas card of the year! I better get making more!

Sending Hope

Hello! One of my favorite stamp companies, My Favorite Things, has a really fun thing going on right now! The Card Design Super Star Contest

And while I think there are hundreds of stampers out there that have far greater skills than I do on these things, I sure have fun playing along and taking the challenge! I made today’s card for their coloring category

It’s not very often that I sit down and take the time needed to do a no-line coloring project. But since this is a coloring challenge, I wanted to do something that took more effort than my usual coloring. Something you can’t see in the picture is that I added Wink of Stella to everything and it gives the prettiest glimmer. Here it is at an angle in hopes that it can be seen just a tiny bit

I used the stamp “Floral Focus” by My Favorite Things. I went to the MFT store to find the set to include the link but it looks to be a retired set – bummer! It’s so pretty! I’m glad I pulled it out to give it some love

With a sentiment, some distressed edging, some flicked ink, and a few little sequins – my card was finished. I left the coloring to be the feature.

Thanks for stopping by to check it out! Have a wonderful week ahead!


2 Autumn cards

Happy Monday and happy new Double Trouble Challenge day! Today it’s all about Autumn – and there’s an extra crispness in the air this morning so these cards fall extra perfect

Thing 1 would like to see at least one circle. I’m really in a wreath mood so my circle is a Fall wreath

Thing 3 would like to see a Fall or Halloween theme and invites you to use this sketch by Atlantic Hearts

I used stamps and dies from Concord and 9th for this card

With a few sequins and a matching envelope, this “grateful” card is complete

Next up is another card using the same colors but different products. It’s a sneak peek for the sketch coming up over at Atlantic Hearts for next week!

This card features stamps and dies by Reverse Confetti. I was so sad to hear their doors were closing as I have loved their sweet products and even guest designed for them last year. This cute wreath goes perfect for the sketch you will see start up next week at Atlantic Hearts

Thank you for stopping by today and we hope you will go check out the details and play along at Double Trouble!

Happy Fall Ya’ll!

It’s a Double Trouble Challenge Blog Monday! This week has some Fall fun involved.

Thing 1 wants to see Fall/Halloween colors – particularly a few from the picture of leaves they have posted with the challenge. I chose all of them!

I used the Happy Fall Ya’ll stamp set by Kat Scrappiness as well as some of her fabulous mini slimline dies – Lattice frame as well as the Fancy Scalloped set

Thing 3 wants to see a pumpkin on your card. Easy enough since you will already be pulling out your Autumn colors, right?! I love these cute ones with the Fall foliage all around them

And finally, Thing 2 has us partnering up with Jan’s Digital Stamp Shop Challenge Blog! You don’t have to have one to play along (I don’t have any digital images as I don’t use them). But if you do, even better! Make a card using these fun twists from all the Things at Double Trouble and then be sure to head there to share with us!

Thanks for visiting today! See you again soon!


Autumn Congratulations

I haven’t done an ink blended background for a card in a long time. But I’ve been seeing so many pretty ones that I was in the mood to do a silhouette image over an Autumn ink blended background

The Wednesday challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is to make a matching envelope with your card! I always mean to do just that, but don’t do it as often as I should. They are also showcasing products by Altenew. I haven’t used these stamps by them in forever but they sure make for a pretty silhouette of a jar full of Wildflowers!

I did make Reel of this one coming together. You can head to my Instagram to check it out. (I just checked on it and I’m not sure what happened to the music I added! Oops!🤷‍♀️)

Nothing like beautiful Autumn colors.

Thanks for stopping by to see this one today! See you again soon

Sending paper hugs

Hello everyone! I’m here today with a card that uses only die cuts! Not a single stamp is on this one and it’s full of gorgeous products from Kat Scrappiness!

Another fun thing about this one is that it is an A7 size. I haven’t done one of these in forever!

I started with the 5 x 7 Wire and Woodgrain die as the base for my design. I then cut out two sets of those gorgeous foliage leaves! Those are from the Stitched Foliage die set. I then colored each one of them with alcohol markers. I used 3 different colors to achieve the look and color scheme that I wanted

I then slid my fingernail along the edges of the leaves to distress and lift them to give more texture. And onto the card they went!

After cutting the sentiment, I also colored it the same way I did the leaves. This Sending Paper Hugs is the cutest! It says what every card is – a paper hug!! I love that this one has the shadow die to give the words a nice frame! Now look at those delicious little drops. Those are from the Ice Ice Baby enamel drops. The fun thing about them is that you can color them with any alcohol markers you have! And you guessed it – I colored them with the same ones I colored the leaves and sentiment with. Voila! Perfectly matching little drops. I will never have enough of these in my stash!

I loved bringing this design together with all it’s beauty and fun dies. Head over to Kat Scrappiness to get your hands on them!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! See you back here soon!
