Parisian Lady

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme “Silhouettes”. To play along just use a silhouette as the focus of your project. Please visit Double D Challenges and see more DD_Silhouetteswonderful 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.

For my card I used designer paper with a “French” theme as background. I layered a swirly die cut oval off centre on the card to accentuate the Eiffel Tower on the designer paper. I then added a elegant die cut lady, roses, leaves and wax cord bows. I finished off with pearls, a die cut sentiment and glitter on the roses. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

Falling Leaves

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog . Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme  “Orange and White only”. The team  created beautiful cards to DD_OrangeandWhiteinspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. And as always there is a prize for one lucky random winner!

I love to make cards with autumn colours and decided to use orange leaves on a white background. I used a swirly die cut for my background to give the idea of movement. I used my Prime watercolours to colour a piece of paper in light and dark tones of orange. The leaves are then die cut from the watercolour paper and adhered to the card with mirror tape for dimension. To finish off I added orange sequins and a sentiment. Hope you like my take on the challenge!

Forest Peekers …

Hello friends,

I hope you are all doing well. Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D hosted by Team Diane. The theme for this challenge is “Featured” and we want you to choose an DD_Featuredobject from the mood board and make it the ‘feature’ on your card. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog.

For my card I used deer as my featured object. This idea comes from the inspiration photo right top panel in the last row. They are so adorable and it was great fun to put all the die cut parts together to let them come to life.  I made a colourful background with distress oxide inks, added a few pretty flowers, leaves and a little bow for a boho feel. To finish off I added a die cut sentiment. Hope you like my take on the challenge.
