Do Something Creative

Today is the 15th and that means the Dueling Darlings are back to post their fun cards!  This group was founded 10 years ago and there are a few of us that are the original members.  Kelly and Jeanette are still our team leaders and they try so hard to keep us all in line and going strong!  On team Kelly are Terry, Carol and me.  Team Jeanette consists of Lorraine, Darlene and Tracie.  And, we are all Dueling Darlings!  

This month the kits were sent by Lorraine and me!  The theme is Crafting!  Yes, something each and every one of the members in the group LOVE!  All different types are crafting are enjoyed by our group--stamping, journaling, scrapbooking, sewing and quilting to name a few.  I sent out a kit with fun images from Taylored Expressions Do Something Creative Stamp and Die Set.  I stamped and die cut some of the images as well as many of the sentiments in the set.  There are many options for my team to choose from!  I also sent some crafty patterned paper from the Carta Bella Craft & Create line.  I included some ribbons and fun embellishments--more choices.............................

I colored the images I picked with my Copic Sketch Markers.  I decided to use a MFT Blueprints 27 die that makes a frame with 3 squares and a long rectangle. I used my Gina K Designs Master Layouts 2 to die cut one of the patterned papers along with a gray backer. I layered the yellow frame over the scissors crafty paper and used foam tape for some depth.  I then added some of the fun craft images in the stitched frame and a few on the frame too.  I punched out one of the sentiments and a backer from some older Stampin' Up punches.  The final touch was adding some clear enamel dots around some of the images.  This was fun card to make!

Here is the inside of my card, with the patterned paper and another one of the sentiments:

I hope all of the Dueling Darlings enjoy my card this month and our crafty theme!  Please be sure to stop in to see what fun crafty cards are posted,    All of the blogs can be found on my left sidebar.  Our teammate and my partner Lorraine does not have a blogs, so please check out her card in her SCS gallery.   I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!   September has Terry and Darlene up as hostesses, so be sure to check back on the 15th to see all of our creations.
