Happy Dance

Hello friends,

Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D Challenges with the theme “White with one other colour only” (you can use neutrals with your one colour or you can use a neutral as your one colour)”. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your creation!

I decided to create a clean and simple slimline card for this challenge. I used a bright lime green cardstock as background for the white dancing stick figures. I added some gemstones and filled some of the figures with negative die cuts for more interest. I finished off with a die cut sentiment. Hope you like my really simply take on this challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Hope Your Day Is Wonderful

Hello friends,

Time for a new challenge at Double D Challenges. I am joining Team Darlene for this fortnight’s challenge with the theme “Buildings”. Please visit the Double D Challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from the talented designers and join in the fun! We also have a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

My inspiration from the picture was the garden hut which I changed to a row of colourful beach huts.. I decided to create a clean and simple card so that the colourful huts stand out on the white background. First I stamped a layer of “sand” on the background. I coloured the huts with watercolour pencils and markers and then layered two of them with mirror tape on the background for dimension. The background layer was framed with yellow cardstock and then glued to the base card. I finished off with a beach ball, a pair of flip-flops and a sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Sweet Talk

Hello friends,

Time for a new challenge at Double D Challenges. I am joining Team Darlene for this fortnight’s challenge with the theme “Handles”(Something that has a handle). Please visit the Double D challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from the talented designers and join in the fun!

I decided on an old Penny Black stamp with an adorable rabbit, bird and a shovel (spade) to represent the “handle” theme for this card. I stamped and coloured the image with watercolour pencils. I then layered the image on  striped designer paper and add an arch lattice punched strip on the one side for interest. I finished off with a few pink gemstones.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

String of Hearts

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Hearts”. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

My inspiration from the picture was the hearts and red and white colours. I decided to make an “easy-to-create” card although the card have several layers. I framed the white layer with red cardstock and then added my heart border die cut. The heart border was cut from metallic red cardstock that gives a beautiful shine on the card. I have this die for several years but this is the first time I used it  because of its length – now it fits perfectly on a trendy slimline card! I cut a sentiment from black glitter paper, layered it on a piece of white cardstock, which was then adhere on the card with mirror tape for dimension. This was really an easy card to make, with just two dies, and I love the outcome.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The sentiment

A peep at the inside

Project details

Red and white cardstock — Red metallic cardstock — Black glitter cardstock — Memory Box die “Delightful Heart Border” (Style no 98767) — Cottage Cutz sentiment die “Love you Mum Phrase” (CC-456)

Lots of White

Hello friends,

Another Christmas card for the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme for this challenge is “Lots of White”. The team has created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile and as always there is a lovely prize to win!

As this is my last post before Christmas I am wishing all my followers and blog friends a wonderful holiday season, have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!.

I used the white and green colours in the tile as inspiration for my card. For my card I decided to add texture by using an embossing folder with small speckles for one layer. I then layered the wreath on the embossed background, the embellished the wreath with a silver bow and lots of silver gemstones – I love the glittery effect. For a dash of colour I added 2 small red birds. The die cut sentiment is made of several layers glued together for dimension.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Sunny Wishes

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme “Colors of DD_ColoursOfSummer_July21Summer”. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

Now onto the details of my summer card for the new challenge. I decided to make a slimline, clean and simple card, for this challenge. I don’t have any dies or stamps with sea shells or beach balls, so my choice was to go with a bunch of lovely flowers. I used a long neglected stamp which was a perfect fit for the slimline design. The image was coloured with my Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils and then the top layer (with the stamped image) layered with mirror tape on the base layer for a bit of dimension. I added a sentiment, a few light green gemstones and a bow to finish off.  Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

A snapshot of the flowers and butterflies

Project details

White and green cardstock — Penny Black clear stamp set “Sunny Wishes” (30-344) — Aall & Create sentiment stamp “Garden Cuttings” (#178) — Green gemstones — Green wax cord for bow — Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils
