Double D Challenge: Frames

Hello, friends!  It's Double D challenge time again and, as you may have guessed from the title, we're doing "Frames" this time around.  I hope you can play along!

I love working with frames.  Mostly I like to make my own, adding die cut embellishments to the corners and framing up a stamped and colored image, but today I made something very simple so I could use a new-to-me Poppystamps die.  It's the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil.  It comes with some small birds and vines, but I left those off today and instead added a cheerful flower from the Poppystamps Sending Scribbles set.




Here's our mood board for your inspiration:




The team has the very difficult task of voting on creative favorites, and a random winner will receive this prize:




I also used a new Poppystamps sentiment set -- Birthday Blowout.  All the clean white is not exactly what I had initially envisioned for this die, but I saw these colors in the mood board and thought I'd go with it.  Funny thing is, I like it!  Maybe it's that funky yellow flower.




Come see the team samples at Double D.  No two alike and all a delight!

There are more card details in the recipe below.  Thank you so much and I'll see you again soon!


Stamps:  Poppystamps Birthday Blowout, Sending Scribbles  Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest Super Smooth Solar White, SU Cool Caribbean  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Cool Caribbean (sponged thru stencil onto white panel under frame, creating a halo around pots)  Accessories:  Signo Uniball white gel pen, white embossing powder, Scotch brand foam mounting tape  Dies:  Poppystamps Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil, Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle Stacklets (inside)

The pop of yellow from that flower is a super sweet little detail.

Wow! This die is just so different and I really adore it. I have a soft spot for Poppy stamps and dies. But unfortunately, don't have many. I love how you did this challenge.

I am so far behind again! A week in Hillsboro and I can't get into any kind of "groove" again, particularly in card-making. This card of yours is one of those clean, neat, beautiful creations that you do so well, Leslie! I love the soft color palette and the "frames" you have chosen. Beautiful job.

Pam Sparks said...

OH! I LOVE it! What a fabulous take with this die! Awesome Leslie!

What a great die - I love what you did with it! Nothing is prettier than soft blue and yellow. Thanks so much for your lovely comments. The past month has been so overwhelming. I will be MIA next week as we decided to run away for awhile. We need some down time. Thanks again, I so appreciate you visiting my blog.
