Double D September Challenge...Show us your "Trees"!

It's time for September's second DOUBLE D CHALLENGE...."Trees"
September is here and summer is almost over.  The foliage on the trees is changing color from shades of green to bright colors of red, orange and gold.   What could be more inspiring than the colors Mother Nature provides us with?  Hence, our challenge topic, "Trees". 

We will be choosing a Creative Winner and Top 3 to receive our Double D Badge to share on your blogs.  In addition, when a prize is available, we will be using a random draw to select the winner.  Today is one of those days and EVERYONE has a chance to win.  International entries are welcome as well!  Enter your project HERE.  

This Impression Obsession Evergreen Tree Die will be just in time for your holiday projects!


Play along with our September "Tree" Challenge and you could be our random winner!

We offer four spectacular photos to inspire you while creating your project.  Choose from one of the four or combine them altogether!



Here is my tree inspiration...

I love the stark contrast of the tree silhouette against the different backgrounds.  Since Autumn is just around the corner and my favorite time of year, I chose the warm reds and oranges from the mood board inspiration.

 

The background of this card was created using several distress inks  After adding the black felt tree die cut, I embellished the tree with leaves and gems.   The sentiment is a wood chip that I bought at the Lancaster CK event in July.  I sprayed iridescent glitter dust over the entire card to add some shimmer.  The front of the card is matted with black cardstock.


The angle view allows for a better look at the shimmer.

Bazzill Cardstock - Black, White
Gems - Queen & Co.
Glitter Dust - Thermoweb
Inks - Tim Holtz/Abandoned Coral, Broken China, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade

Craft-Dee BowZ Apple Picking Time!

It's my Tuesday to post on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog sharing my September DT inspiration. 

 With harvest season upon us, we are creating with an "Apple Picking Time" theme using the colors of red, blue and green. 

Here's my "Apple" inspiration...

"Wish you lots of blessings"

The green patterned paper is layered over a 5 x 7 blue cardstock base.  I used a few of my favorite die cuts for the  background of this 3-D apple.  There's lots of dimension among the layers.


The blue, sheer bow was created with the help of my Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  I added a couple of leaves, flowers and stick pins as a finishing touch.

From my stash...
Die Cuts - Annay Griffin, Spellbinders
Gems - Queen & Co.
Flowers- Petaloo
Patterned Paper - Authentique
Other: Leaves, ribbon, stick pins

"Grow where you are planted"

This fun checked ribbon was part of our DT product for September.  I couldn't wait to use it!  The color is amazing and I love wire edged ribbon as it holds it's shape so well.  Creating a bow was easy with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.  If you don't have one,  you need one in your crafty stash!

My "Summer Vacation" inspiration...


"TRAVEL"

Traveling is a favorite of most people at vacation time.  We have had the opportunity to travel to many places throughout our lives.  One of the memorable times was taking an afternoon ride on a train pulled by an old steam engine.  You could hear the wheels and gears whining and grinding as we moved slowly along the tracks.  It is amazing that technology has taken us so far with train travel.  Years ago, it took weeks, even months to travel across country.  Today, it is merely days.
