Birthday Double Challenge

Hello everyone. It was so lovely to get into my craft space, create some cards, and use up some papers that have been sitting on my desk for the longest time.

To make things go a little smoother I decided to look at what challenges were around that might work with the pieces that I had. Well, I found that Double Trouble and Try Stampin’ On Tuesday were teaming up this week. I usually enter both of these challenges when I am able so I was pleased to see this team-up.

I love using sketches so this was a great one to work with and then extra challenges with the Double Trouble I was able to comply with as well.

The paper that I had sitting on my desk was the nailed board, this was the only piece of this paper that I had left. So I decided that I needed to make a background paper so I used a leaf stencil and 2 Distress Inks – Fired Brick and Gathered Twigs – with stencil brushes.

The other products that I used were from Paper Rose Studios the happy birthday sentiment from the Black and White Sentiment Pack and the image which is called On The Road. I stamped this image on Kraft light-weight cardstock in Rich Cocca Memento Ink. I add a strip of gold light-weight cardstock, a black Pin-Stripe Sticker by Love From Lizi and Black Nuvo Drops to finish off the card.

Thanks for looking in at my card design using the 2 challenges from Double Trouble & Try Stampin’ On Tuesday. I hope that you have a wonderful day no matter what you find yourself doing.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

Birthday Penguin

Hello, everyone. As I mentioned in my previous post I made 2 cards using the same challenges but with this card, I decided that I would include the twist version from the Double Trouble Challenge. And just to remind us of the challenge they are …

So it is to use 3 different patterned papers but this time include a Penguin

So once I found out about the twist I went searching in my images to see if I had something that I could work with. And I found this cute but unfortunately no longer available digi image from Meljen Designs. I fussy cut around the ribbon part of the image before using a circle die to cut both the image and the black mat as well with my Gemini Jnr machine. Then I matted all the other papers with black paper before adhering them to my card base. I found this gold washi tape in my stash as I wanted to break up the very purple card that I had created. By adding this to some cardstock before adhering it to the card it helped to make sure it didn’t have any marks from the papers beneath.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my 2nd make using the challenges from Try Stampin On Tuesday and Double Trouble. Before you go I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.
