Dueling Darlings Celebrating Baby Safety Month

Hello stampers.  It’s the 15th of the month and time to celebrate the Dueling Darlings kit swap.  Donna and Judy are this month’s hosts.  My kit came from Donna and contained all the products, except for the stencil, in my kit (the Dazzlers).  Judy sent off a kit to the Divas.  It’s always fun to see what each other does with our kits.

I had my stencils out and was inspired to use my stencil to add a pattern to the onsie.

Thanks for stopping by.  Below is the list of products used:

Supplies:

DDD August Kit – Humor

It’s the 15th of the month and that means the Dueling Dazzlers and Divas post our cards that we made with the kit provided to us.  This month the Dazzlers received our kit from Jeanette and the Divas received their kits from Kelly.  As always, it is super fun to see what everyone did with their kit.

My image came to me on a white background and I added the clouds with my handmade cloud and SU Pacific Point.  I used a curvy die to show movement of the rollercoaster.  I cut my sentiment out in a circle and sponged colour around the edges.

What a fun image, eh?!

My kit includes the following:

Image and Sentiment:  Taylored Expressions Adventure Land stamp set

Designer Paper unknown source

Ribbon Celebrate it

Buttons and pearls unknown source

DDD Christmas in July

Hello folks!  For those who follow me, you know that on the 15th of the month I post a card that I made with a kit from the Dueling Darlings.  There are two teams:  the Divas, and the Darlings (me).  The two teams are sent different kits and it is a duel to see how each kit is used.  It is a lot of fun that’s for sure.  Being part of this group certainly pushes me to the max to see what I can come up with.

This month I did paper tole.  Remember how it used to be the rage?

If you look very close, you will see the top layer of my card has been cut out and using pop dots, I adhered the top to the background.

Another fun challenge!

DDD June Kit Challenge

Hello there.  Thanks for popping in today.

Today’s card was inspired by a kit from Terry L. from the Dueling Darlings group in which I am a member.  Tami (Divas) and Terry L (Dazzlers) decided to use “what we have” to create a kit with “Halloween” being the theme.

By now you know I love to make 3-D cards, and this kit lends itself to doing just that.  This is called the Bendi card, and everything, except the tree die, was in the kit.

For a tutorial on the Bendi card, please see here.

Images were coloured with copic markers.  Background was sponged with black and Pumpkin Pie.

The following are the products I used from the kit sent to me:

Images and sentiment:  My Favorite Things “Witch Way is the Candy?”

Papers:  The Paper Studio

Enamel dots:  The Paper Studio

Die cuts:  A Muse fence, spider web and bats.

Dueling Darlings May Kit Challenge

This month it was Shelly’s turn to send the Dazzler’s a kit and she chose the theme Masculine/Motorcycles.  I am so pleased with how nice the papers all coordinate so well.  As someone who uses bright colours most of the time, these colours are a welcome change.  I am in love with plaid and used the plaid side rather than the backside.  It is always fun to see what the Dazzler’s and Diva’s do with their kits.  It’s amazing how different each card looks.

Card Supplies:

  • Motorcycle stamp, Artistic Outpost
  • Sentiment, unknown source
  • Ribbon, SU
  • Dew Drops
  • Designer paper – gray, Kaiserkraft
  • Designer paper – wood grain, Moxie
  • Designer paper – plaid, Reminince
  • Matt backing – SU Early Espresso (this is from my stash)

Thanks, Shelly, for the great kit!

Dueling Darlings

Hello fellow stampers!  I’m so very excited to shout out that I’m now part of the Dueling Darlings team on Splitcoaststampers, and this is my very first post with them.

This group consists of Dueling Dazzlers (me) and Dueling Divas.  Each team is mailed a kit with the same theme.  The Dazzlers have one kit, and the Divas have another.  I was so thrilled with this month’s theme of Outer Space.  Here, we used MFT Space Explorer and coordinating dies.  Our posts go live on the 15th of each month.

Thank you Terry for such a wonderful kit.

Rather than making a flat card, I made a Pop Up Box card.  I made this style of card because I wanted to create the feeling of outer space.

The following was used in in the kit:

  • MFT Space Explorer and dies
  • DSP, MME Blastoff, Echo Park Lost in Space, Photoplay Infinity & Beyond, Photoplay Intergalactic
  • Embellishments:  Hampton art action wobble, Recollections star brads, Recollections bling, Darice baker’s twine

The most fun of belonging to this wonderful team is that we get to hop along to see how other’s used their kit.

Thanks for stopping by!
