Dueling Darlings – September

Hello, welcome to another Dueling Darlings post. This month’s kit was sent by Terry S. and the theme she and Terry A. selected was in honour of Milton Hershey’s birthday on September 13th. Chocolate!!

I had two images to work with and chose Stampabilities “Mouseful of Fudge”. I loved the purple papers in this kit and tried to get as many as I could into this card!

I can’t wait to see what October brings! See you a month from now.

Mystery Image & Craft Your Stash

Hey! I was hoping to make my Mystery Image post before the end of the month, but it did not happen. Therefore, I decided to post by my Mystery Image and my Craft Your Stash post at the same time, since my blog is going to be busy for the next week or so.

Mystery Image first…this month’ image came from the lovely lady Joanna. Joanna’s got great taste…a coffee themed image!! If I didn’t collect umbrella stamps, this would probably be my next choice. Perhaps one day, Joanna and I can stamp in the same room and happily combine coffee with umbrellas all day.

This image is from Art Impressions and it’s called “Hot Java Mama”. It was fun to color up, but took me awhile to find JUST the right layout. I finally used the MFT Card Sketch #348 for this post (though I’m not posting it, since it’s an Art Impressions image).

And, Craft Your Stash this month was chosen by Darlene. She challenged us not to use patterned paper and create our own. In the recent Dare to Get Dirty challenges, I kinda fell in love with the cling wrap technique, so I decided to use it for my card this month. Here is my background, paired with a Stampin’ Up set that I had yet to ink! Way to use your stash, Heather.

Well, here some September and some new challenge! I’ll see you towards the end of the month with the September image from Sonja and September challenge from Terry.

Later, gators.

TCCCB – For the Boys

Hello, welcome to the September 1st challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

Our challenge this fortnight is For the Boys. I’m working with the products over at Decosse’s Dynamite Doodles, which are fabulous for your digital projects, or to print and use for your “paper” projects.

Here is my creation for this challenge. I decided to go with the blues and forego an image on this one. The papers from Decosse’s printed wonderfully on my printer and were great to work with! The was fairly easy to cut out and then I layered the sentiment on the top.

This was a Try Stamping on Tuesday sketch. Though I didn’t get to enter it this time, I wanted to provide credit.

Come on and play in this great challenge! You can link up your entry over at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog from now through the middle of the month. Come and check us out!

Dueling Darlings – August

Time for another DDD challenge! My card is a few days late this month. Mail sometimes doesn’t work it’s way to me quite as speedy as we hope and I didn’t receive my kit in time. Then, there was this whole thing called vacation that left me, somehow, with even less time to craft than when I was working! But, much, MUCH more family fun time!!

Anyway, Carol sent this kit. She and her partner in crime came up with the theme of “Catch of the Day”.

My card uses the Whipper Snapper image “Fisherman”. Carol made these adorable bobber embellishments that I HAD to use!!

This sketch is from the August 15, 2017 Feeling Sketchy challenge (#175).

Thanks for swinging by and I’ll see you next month for the newest DDD kit!
