Wanna Hang Out?

Happy Monday and happy new Double Trouble challenge! We’ve got a fun one for the girls this week

I’ve got 4 daughters and we are girlie girls! So the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the request for “a girly girl theme” from Thing 1 – the first thing that came to mind was how much my daughters love clothes! So I did this card with these 2 cute dresses

I was inspired by the challenge over at Inspired By. The colors on their graphic gave me the idea for the colors I’d use

I used an older set by Simon Says Stamp called “I like your style” and with the request by Thing 3, I made sure to really add the embellishments! And what could be better to describe girls than diamonds and pearls?!

And of course the dresses needed to be sparkly! Wink of Stella on that job

We’re partnering with Stinkin Inkers for this challenge and their theme is “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!” so if you play along with us, be sure to go share there as well!

Grab your girlie images and look through all those fun embellishments you’ve been accumulating – it’s time to make a fun card to play along! Remember to head over to Double Trouble for details and for the link to enter.

Have a happy week!

Wishing you buckets of Happiness!

Happy May and Happy Monday!!! I love both!

It’s time to get creative with how you make the folds of your card this time around with Double Trouble

I chose to do a gate fold. I haven’t done one in forever!

Thing 3 wants to see frogs! These 2 cute frogs in this wishing well set by Your Next Stamp are just perfect!

I used an old impression plate to make subtle flowers on the white of the card. I wanted to go along with the current YNS challenge which is “Burst of Color”. So I kept everything white and this center circle has this cute wishing well as the burst!

The circle lifts to open the card. I attached it on the left side with only some mono glue that had dried. Makes it pop open easy without tearing

I added sequins and glitter to give some sparkle

And my card was finished! Thing 2 said that you can go enter at Crafting Happiness if you used a frog so head on over there to share if you did 🙂

And before I go – I am such a big fan of stamping challenges, I want to share a new one with you! And if you did something with a fun fold, you can head there to share your card with that challenge too! It’s the Creative Creases challenge by the Secret Stamper

Have an amazing week!

Spring gnomes

I am crazy about the new “Club Sursee” by Catherine Pooler this month! I’ve been seeing gnomes everywhere and at first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about them. But lately, I’ve been falling in love with them! So to my delight, there were gnomes in the Sursee stamp set this month!

Aren’t they adorable?!

That cute grass border die came in the Sursee as well and it’s going to come in handy for lots of cards!

The sentiment is inside and says “Spring Greetings” and will be perfect to give to a friend at this gorgeous Spring time of year!

Thanks for stopping by to see it!

I hope you are having a happy week!

Home Sweet Home color challenge

Hello! Today Double Trouble Challenge Blog is out with a new challenge and it’s to use these colors

These colors were tricky for me! But I came up with a simple one layer card that will be sweet for someone with a new home

Thing 1 wants to see flowers on our cards – so I put a fun little bouquet in the corner of this home image

And of course a little sprinkling of sequins around the flowers! I love sequins so much, I can hardly make a card without them!

The stamps and dies I used on my card are from Simon Says Stamp except the flowers, which are from Reverse Confetti

We’re partnering with Make the Card challenge this time around, so be sure to head over there to submit your card too! If you played with the requirements for Thing 1 and Thing 3, you automatically qualify to enter their challenge too 🙂 Head to Double Trouble for all the details!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful week 🙂

Thanks – You’re the Best!

Hi friends! I’m back to share another cute card using the “Free as a Bird” set by Jane’s Doodles

This cute little dancing bird is just so cute!!

I colored the little guy with Zig Clean Color markers and placed him on this “Thanks” die by Reverse Confetti that I cut and layered 3 times

These perfectly coordinating sequins are also from Jane’s Doodles as well and go so cute with the pattern paper I used

I haven’t done a square card in a long time and I quite love how it turned out! I might need to make some more that are this shape and size

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!

Happy “Bird-day!”

Hi everyone! I’m excited to be sharing a card that features some adorable stamps from Jane’s Doodles!

I was inspired by the new challenge over at Color Throwdown

This adorable set is called “Free as a Bird” and has the cutest bird images with some sweet sentiments to coordinate

I loved this cute “Bird-day” play on words!

I colored these happy birds with my Zig Clean Color brush pens

That cute background die is by Reverse Confetti. And the stitched square is by Pink and Main. I softly ink blended a slight indication of grass and sky to go behind the little birds. Then with a sprinkling of my favorite embellishment – sequins – this card was finished!

Thank you for visiting today! I noticed that Jane’s Doodles is even having a sale right now. Head on over there and pick this set up at a discount to add to your stash! But hurry because her sale ends Sunday.

Have a wonderful weekend!

You are so sweet

The new challenge at Double Trouble is a fun one! Pair with any previous partner. If you play along with us often, you know that we love to support other challenge blogs – which I love! This time around you can pick from a great list of them

The optional twist by Thing 3 is to include an image that you have colored yourself. So break out your favorite coloring medium, or maybe one that you haven’t used in awhile!

My card uses the cute set by Concord and 9th called “Here’s the Scoop”

The previous partner that I chose to play along with for this one is Color My Heart Color Dare.

I chose the top row across. Isn’t that perfect for an ice cream birthday card?!

I colored with alcohol markers and did an overlay of Wink of Stella for some glimmer effect. I also added glossy accents to the cherry for some shiny dimension as well as an abundance of sprinkles!

The wonky stitched rectangles I used for the background layers are dies by Avery Elle. And with a coordinating envelope, this color dare card is complete!

I hope you will head on over to Double Trouble and play along with this challenge! So many fun ideas come when you look at a challenge and stretch yourself to do something new by taking that challenge.

Thanks for visiting today!

Magical Friendship

Happy Monday everyone! Mondays are my favorite day of the week! I have a daughter on a church mission and Monday is the one day each week that I get to talk to her!! I get so very excited. This is her and I ❤. There’s nothing like having a missionary out to make Monday the favorite day of the week!

Another reason to love Mondays is when there’s a new Double Trouble Challenge!

It’s time to pull out all the “magical” themed stamps! I chose dragons for my card

This cute set is from MFT. The slimline dies I used for all 3 panels are from Pinkfresh Studio and are so versatile! And if you use dies on your card this time around, you meet the requirement by Thing 3

I had my cute little flying dragon trail diamonds behind as they took flight in this little scene

We are partnering with Dies R Us for this challenge so if there’s a die on your card, share it there too!

Thanks for stopping by today! We hope you’ll play along with us!

Have a fabulous week! I have a couple of fun cards ahead and can’t wait to see you again

Ocean Happy Birthday

I’ve got a fun card today, featuring Lawn Fawn products! Their current challenge is to make a birthday card

Retro Rubber challenge blog also has one of my favorite challenges going – Tic Tac Toe

I chose the middle column going up and down – Ocean theme, texture, and pattern paper

I used 3 older sets from Lawn Fawn to play along with Retro. I also used their coordinating dies. “Life is Good”, “A Birdie Told Me”, and the sentiment is from “Village Shops”

For my Tic Tac Toe column to be complete, I used real sand for the texture! Isn’t that so fun? It’s actually from my favorite beach in Florida 🙂

The pattern paper is placed behind the panel as a column for interest. And the whole thing is colored with alcohol markers.

With a coordinating envelope, this Lawn Fawn birthday card is ready to send!

Thanks for stopping by to see my card today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

3 challenges, one main image

Happy Saturday everyone! I did something really fun this weekend and I know I’ll be doing it again with my stamping. I took 1 main image and used it for 3 different challenges. I focused on one main technique – Emboss Resist. Each challenge gave me a different idea of what to do with the main stamp I wanted to use. The stamp is the “In My Heart” image from the February Club Sursee by Catherine Pooler

I started out by playing with it using the Emboss resist technique and some of my favorite colors by CP – All that Jazz, In the Park, and Cummerbund

I ink blended over the white embossed image – so pretty! I actually made an Instagram Reel of this one coming together. Head over there to see it!

I wanted to play with this cute image a couple more times. I took inspiration from the Color Throwdown color challenge, which looked very “Citrus” to me and I loved it!

I was also inspired by the idea to use watercolor when I saw that Happy Little Stampers had a “watercolor Anything Goes” challenge up

I grabbed the colors inspired by Color Throwdown and did watercolor over the image

I love those fun colors together!! The background is from the die that came in the Feb Club Sursee too called “Along the Arbor”. I cut it 3 times across my card panel

Finally, with my last embossed heart, I used Zig Clean Color pens. I scribbled a few complimentary colors in the pink/purple category and then sprayed it to blend them together

I used the sketch challenge over at Try Stampin’ On Tuesday as my idea for a layout for this final card

That cute background is the “Quilted Cover” background die by CP too

So as you can see, I used all Catherine Pooler products and focused on the one main image. It was so fun to do!! I frequently feel like I get stamps and they get put away with getting love. This was so fun to make these 3 cards and give my February Club Sursee some use!

Can you give this a try? Grab a stamp set or 2, a couple of dies, and look through some challenges! They are so fun to play along with and great ideas come from them!

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at these. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
