Teal and Red

Hello friends,

I hope you are all well. Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D Challenges with the theme “Teal and Red” – yes, this time it is a color challenge. You can create a card or project inspired by the photo and we want to see teal and red colors and added neutrals are also okay. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your card!

My shabby card is really simple to make. For interest I used a decorative die with circles as one of three layers on my card. I love the texture the die cut brings to the floral background of the card. I don’t want to cover too much of the die cut layer so I just added a fishtail banner for the sentiment and a few roses layered on wax cord bows. I finish off with red gemstone hearts. I hope you like my take on the challenge.

Challenges I entered:

The sentiment on a fishtail banner

The roses with a little bit of bling

Little red hearts in the circles for detail

A peep at the inside

Three Bunnies

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “When Skies are Gray”. Just look at the pretty mood board – use some gray and also add
patterns, textures and objects from board. The Design 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.

This card was a challenge for me as I struggled to get gray colored paper between my heaps of papers.At the end of a long search I found a few leftovers from previous projects to layered my background. For the pattern component I added a Spellbinders flower die cut and polka dot paper. A strip of lace for texture forms the basis for the happy bunnies. I finished off with white roses, waxed cord bows, pearls, white hearts and a “Best wishes” sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The bunnies on a lace strip

The sentiment, pearls and some hearts

Looking at the mood board it is all about feeling sentimental. Please visit the Double D challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from Double “D”s talented designers and join in the fun!

I was inspired by the white, black and grayish colors in the photo. I used Prima “Stationer’s Desk” designer paper for the background. I layered a black fishing net die cut on the background paper to accentuate my sentiment and flowers. I finished off with a wax cord bow, some silver gemstones, glitter on the flowers and a swallow.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Neutrals and Texture

Hello friends,

Today is the start of our new challenge at Double D Challenges. The challenge this fortnight is really easy with the theme “Tan neutrals with texture”.  The neutrals can be kraft, tan, cream, beige, etc and texture can be anything. The inspiration board is so beautiful – I just love all the colors and texture! Please visit the Double D Challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from our talented designers and join in the fun! We have a prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org. and a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team.

I was inspired by the cream colors in the photo and the beautiful textured ribbon. I layered the elements on tan designer paper and a die cut daisy background. The butterfly on the die cut tag is lifted from the base card with mirror tape for a bit of dimension. I kept the card simple, but still shabby, by adding some gem stones, paper roses and hessian and wax cord bows. The sentiment was cut with a Penny Black sentiment die.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

The butterfly and tag

The flowers and bow

The sentiment

A close-up of the inside
