Double D - Pink and White

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D we are playing with Pink and White. We can create anything, as long as we use pink and white.  Here is the Mood Board provided for our inspiration:


And here is my card:
 Such a pretty color combination, I had so much fun playing with this. I used a very old Sparkle and Sprinkle image from the Mon Ami stamp set. I have not thought about this set in years, don't know why it popped into my head. But I think it lends itself well to the color challenge. It is stamped and heat embossed in gold and then colored with Copics. The greeting from Stampin' Up is gold heat embossed on vellum. The background is dry embossed with a unique Sizzix embossing folder that is 3 dimensional.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Innocent Pink Card
GKD White Heavy Base Weight Card 
Stash Gold Foil
GKD Gold Embossing Powder
Sparkle and Sprinkle Mon Ami Stamp
SU Stitched All Around Stamp for Greeting
Sizzix Jumbled Triangles Embossing Folder
Wall Flower Lacy Layers Die for background
Copic Markers
Gold Thread

You really need to head over to the Double D Challenge Blog and check out what all the other designers have done. And if you play along you could win this adorable die set:

Mod Squad - Greet your Vellum

Dear Ones~

Happy February! Where DID January go? We went from the sub-zero Polar Vortex temps to an unseasonably warm 42 degrees in a week. Welcome to Northern Michigan.

This week it's my turn once again to host over at The Mod Squad Challenge. My challenge is to apply your greeting to vellum. You MUST use vellum for your greeting or your entry will be removed so as not to skew the numbers for the prize drawing.

Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs along with informative and creative crafting videos.Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs.
Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, their online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, social network for paper crafters and more! Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world.

Glad you stopped by, and don't forget to head on over to The Mod Squad Challenge and play along. You could win the prize! I can't wait to see your wonderful creations, and I adore your comments!


Double D - Hearts

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D we are playing with HEARTS. Easy, peasy, right? And just look at all the lovely hearts on this Mood Board for our inspiration:

Here's my card:
I decided I wanted to make a shaped card for a change, so I folded the card stock in two and placed the die so that the top slightly overhung the fold. After it's cut, the fold remains. Then I die cut another of the same shape and ran it through an embossing folder to give it a quilted look. That piece was adhered to the card front.

Here are the Ingredients:
HOTP Love & 5 Hearts Die for Shape
SU Tip Top Taupe Card Stock
SU Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder
SU So Detailed Thinlits
SU Balloon Pop Up Thinlits for Die Cut Bow
EK Success Flower Punch
Stash Pearls and  Cord

I hope you will hop on over to Double D Challenges and see what the other designers have created. And if you play along, you will have a chance to win this adorable little die.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week. And don't forget to swing by Double D and check us out.  I so appreciate your lovely comments!!! They mean a lot!
