Hi everyone and welcome to another Double D Challenge!

It's August, and team Darlene is up with the second mood board challenge on the Double D Challenge Blog.  Our challenge to you is...create using "Neutral" colors!  Show us your project using the inspiration mood board posted below.  There are four different photos to inspire you.  Link it up at the bottom of  the "Neutrals" blog post in the Double D Challenge Blog by midnight, September 6th, for the chance to be a winner!

You could win this Amy Design Parrot Die Cut!


Here's our "Neutrals" Challenge mood board...


I love all of these neutral shades, but was most inspired by the black/gray/white photo.  So...

Here's my "Neutral" inspiration!

"Hello"

This 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card is created in shades of gray with white and black accents.  The cardstock base is black and layered with tiny dotted paper from Pink Paislee's new C'est La Vie Collection.  The colors in the different patterns were perfect for this challenge.  The floral patterned paper is  matted in shades of gray cardstock.


I misted the chipboard sentiment with Tattered Angels Pearl spray mist.  The flowers have a touch of gesso on the edges and are highlighted with a Wink of Stella pen for shimmer.   I had to add a touch of color and chose green stems and ribbon for contrast.

Crafft-Dee BowZ "Safari Adventure"!

I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog today with my August inspiration.  The Design Team is creating with an animal theme in colors of brown and green using feather embellishments.  It was a fun experience using the feathers on my project!
 
Here's my August inspiration...
 
"Safari Adventure"
 
I used the new G45 Safari papers for this 8 x 8 card.  What a great paper collection full of fun animal prints.  I fussy cut a lot of the pieces and added dimension for a 3-D look. 


I love the tiger, so he had to be front and center!


I made a pocket behind the "Safari Adventure" sign, added one of the tags from the set and included a charm that was most appropriate for this adventure.



The "piece de resistance", the fabulous bow and flower embellishment was so fun to create!  The bow was created using the Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  If you don't have one, add one to your stash today!  It helps make bows with ease.  I added some twine and a matching flower to the bow and tucked in some extra feathers for a finishing touch.

Here is my August challenge inspiration...

"WELCOME to our JUNGLE"

I created a gate fold card for this challenge.  The sign on top, "Welcome to our Jungle" called for a door of some type and I thought the gate would be most appropriate!  These patterned papers from the Graphic 45 Safari collection were perfect. 


I used a tropical leaf die cut to add detail and dimension to the card.


The gate opens to view the inside sentiment...
Life is a journey...and so the adventure begins.

Dies R Us August "Babies" Challenge!

It's August and time for the Dies R Us bi-monthly "BABIES" Challenge!
Yep, here at Dies R Us we offer you two challenges each month....one at the beginning and one mid month.  Lots of time to create, enter, and chances to be a winner!
For the first half of August, we are talking baby language.  There's nothing more adorable than babies, be it human or animal.  We want to see your creations using a "Babies" theme.   Link up your entry at the bottom of the "Babies" challenge post in the Dies R Us Challenge Blog and you could be the next winner of a $10 voucher to use in the Dies R Us Store.  This challenge ends at midnight, August 14th, so get your mojo on and play along!  You can find the challenge post HERE and our guidelines in the left side bar of the challenge blog. While you're there, grab our Dies R Us Challenge Blog widget for your personal blog.
And, most importantly, we want to see DIE CUTS on your project!
Our family is having a baby boom this year with the addition of four new members to the ever growing circle of love.  We welcomed a new handsome grandson in April and will be adding two sweet nephews and a little princess niece before the end of the year.  So, that being said, there is lots of opportunity to create with a "Babies" theme.  Since the princess baby shower is coming in August, it was perfect timing for this challenge.
Here's my "Babies" inspiration...
"Heaven Sent...Precious Baby" 

I created this shaker card using Prima's new Heaven Sent Collection.   What an amazing paper collection with beautiful colors!  This 6 x 6 card has lots of layers and details including matching sequins inside the shaker cover.  I fussy cut the hot air balloon from one of the patterned papers and gave it dimension using pop dots.  The surrounding clouds, honeycomb corner mat, scalloped circle trim and stems are also cut from patterned papers in the collection.  The sentiments are from the matching sticker collection.  I inked all of the edges to give the card a vintage feel.


I added lots of dimension to my fussy cut and die cut embellishements!


The little baby reminds me of the ones I played with when I was young.


I also fussy cut the baby hanging from the parachute and adhered it to the background inside the shaker box.

I'm really excited to give this card to my niece at her baby shower this month!  Then, on to the next baby card for October.
