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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
