Mr and Mrs

Hello! Today I’m sharing a card full of extra layery goodness! It is for the new challenge starting today at Double Trouble

I used stamps and dies by Stampin Up! I have definitely not used them enough!

I went with a mixed media style and did lots of distressing. Thing 1 says to give your card some “smore” layers and details! I added pockets and different pieces that can be pulled out as well as dimension

Thing 2 wants to see a fun fold. With all my pockets and layering on the front, I decided to do a simple tri fold so it wouldn’t be too much. But it’s still a fun fold as it’s not the usual opening

We partnered up with “Creative Creases” for this one and their challenge is Anything Goes! So dig in to your supplies and make a fun card with a different kind of fold. We’re excited to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by to see mine today!

You are the Pearl

Hi everyone! I have a fun card today that I made to join the current Cut it Up challenge. Their theme is “Summer Lovin” and I filled my card with Summer fun!

I haven’t made a flip-slider (or waterfall, some call it) in forever! I thought it would be fun to add all these cute ocean pieces in that way

So fun for the recipient to pull that little tab and get kind of a “storybook” as the little tabs flip!

The sentiment reminds me so much of the H2o series that my daughters used to love watching!

All the stamps and dies used on my card today are by Mama Elephant

Thank you for stopping by to see my card! If you head to my Instagram, there’s a fun quick video of it coming together!

Big hugs!


Deck the halls

Hello and happy Friday!! A new Double Trouble challenge starts now even though it’s not a Monday. Jump in and play!

Thing 1 wants to see more Christmas in July with this one! But Thing 3 is adding a different twist – BLING!

So I started my card panel with a background stamp that looks “blingy”. I embossed it to be shiny and then I added all my other elements over that

All the pretty Christmas foliage around the sentiment gives a fun “floral arrangement” feel and then of course I added more bling with the diamonds all around the foliage

If you make a Christmas card and add bling on it, then you qualify for Thing 2’s challenge partner – Jingle Belles Rock “Bling it on”! Be sure to visit Double Trouble’s blog for all the details and to play along!

Christmas Hello

We are playing “Christmas in July” over at Double Trouble!

There’s a fun optional twist to use the Color Dare Crazy 8 square – which I love! Choose 4 of the blocks on the chart to make your card. I used the bottom row plus “snowflakes”

Aren’t those little trees cute? They come from Close to my Heart. I added the snowflakes by stenciling them softly behind the tree. I also added little glitter dots for a sparkly snowy feel

I’m excited to see what 4 blocks each entrant chooses to create a Christmas card! It’s full of so many possibilities. I love these alternate Christmas colors so much and it was also fun to make a clean and simple card again. Haven’t been making those much but they build the stash fast!

The color block is from Color My Heart Color dare challenge, which Thing 2 has us partnering with. Be sure to enter you card there too!

Thanks for stopping by to see my card! I hope you are inspired and will play along with us at Double Trouble.


Thinking of you Friend

Hi everyone! I’m back with another card for the Double Trouble challenge #114! We’re playing with Atlantic Hearts second card sketch and it’s a fun one!

Thing 1 wants to see a unique background on this one too! I had fun with an embossing folder this time around

After dry embossing my kraft cardstock, I gently brushed white ink over the design to make it pop

I used soft ink colors to do simple water coloring on the flowers and then I fussy cut them to place all around the 3 circles that were the focus of this sketch. Those are also water colored with a soft blue ink

We hope to see you play along with this sketch too! It’s fun to look at a sketch and see how you can interpret it to be completely unique.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit the Double Trouble challenge blog for more details and to enter your card!


Masculine Unique background

Hey everyone! Check out the new challenge over at Double Trouble!

We’re making unique backgrounds for this one! Create a background using one of these techniques: dry embossing, stenciling, stamping or inked. No patterned paper unless you make it yourself!

So for my card, I stenciled the background of the main panel and on the center banner strip, I stamped images and flicked ink

Thing 3 would like to see you use this sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge

I switched it up just a little to make the center vertical piece a banner with the fishing hooks on them to go along with the fishing theme of my card. I didn’t use a sentiment because I liked how it looked better without it. But this one went to my sweet hubby for Father’s Day

Thanks for stopping by to see my card today! Be sure to visit the other Design team’s blogs to see their fabulous inspiration and then play along with us! After your card is entered on Double Trouble, go enter it in to Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge blog as well.

Have a happy day!


You make my world a better place!

Time to pull out the masculine stamps and create! There’s a new challenge up at Double Trouble and Thing 1 wants to see cards for guys!

I never have enough masculine cards so it’s always good to jump in on these kinds of challenges!

I grabbed an old Stampin Up! Set and used just 2 colors for my card

Thing 3 is adding the twist to have stripes or plaid on your card. I chose this dotted stripes pattern paper that has been in my stash forever! Went perfect for the style of my card

Thing 2 says to partner up with Try Stampin on Tuesday by using their sketch to create your card!

It’s the perfect time to make a card for that special dad in your life with Father’s day coming up. And we can’t wait to see what you share with us!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. See you again really soon!

Summer fun!

Happy Summer! School is out and I’m so looking forward to getting to stamp more. A new challenge at Double Trouble is the perfect way to kick it off!

Thing 1 says Anything Goes! I chose a Summery theme with cute little ocean creatures

Thing 3 wants to see repeats. Use one image over and over or use companion images in your sets! I chose to do 3 ocean creatures

These are by Catherine Pooler and are just so cute! I colored them with Zig Clean Color markers and put them on ac piece of vellum. The background is ombre colored using Distress Inks

I added water droplets to give an extra oceany feel, as well as sparkly sequins in blue to add to the underwater fun

Thing 2 wants you to partner up with a previous challenge partner! I chose Color Dare. They are saying to use shades of green, blue, and purple. These were perfect for what I was going for! I usually don’t reach for purple so it was extra fun to challenge myself for this

I left the card without a sentiment on purpose. This is so it can be used any time for anything! I seem to need those a lot lately so I’m planning on making more!

Thank you for stopping by to see my card today and we hope you will visit Double Trouble to play along!

So sweet of you

A new challenge is up over at Double Trouble!

This time, it’s time to get “krafty”! Thing 1 is telling us to pull out some of that kraft paper to make your card!

And Thing 3 wants to see dots or stripes. I chose to go with diagonal stripes

My slimline card is made with stamps and dies by PinkFresh Studio. I just love the sweet strawberries!

Our challenge partner this time around is Crafter’s Cafe. So, Thing 2 says that if you included dots or stripes, be sure to share you card over there too!

Thanks for stopping by to see my card and we hope you will head to Double Trouble and share with us there!


Celebrating your special day

Hi everyone! Challenge 109 with Double Trouble has started and here’s the run down of what fun twists the Things have for us

It’s all kind of a fantasy land feel! Thing 1 says to use Rainbow colors or predominately pink. I did both. Pink Dragon here with us for this card!

Thing 3 wants to see a fantasy or make believe item. Castles and dragons for the win with that! My images come from My Favorite Things

The rainbow pattern paper that my panel is mounted on adds to the fantasy feel and the sequins give some good sparkle that completes it

Our challenge partner is “Colorful Options”. If you chose to add a rainbow or predominately pink, go there and share with their challenge too!

Thanks for visiting today. My stamping time is very limited these days so every little bit brings me joy
