3 Amigos Blog Hop



Welcome to the Three Amigos December 2018  Blog Hop Challenge. We are three Friends with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different product or challenge and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. 


This Month Our Challenge is a simple one... Christmas Card.  So to make it a little more interesting, we are joining together with Double Trouble!  

Double Trouble Challenge #16 - Let the Troubles Begin!

THING 1 Trouble Maker
says you have one more chance to finish your winter holiday cards in time for mailing. Create something using at least one form of embossing... dry embossing, heat embossing, embossing paste, your choice. Or use them all! 

THING 3 Twisted Sister
says "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!" Include snow, snowflakes, a snowman, etc. on your project. 
Hint: If you include a coffee/tea/cocoa image or sentiment, you may  join in the fun at 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop,  Time is limited on the Coffee Blog Hop so read the details below.
Both of these are OPTIONAL twists but why not double the trouble and include both? You will be awarded an additional chance for each twist in Double Trouble's random prize draw.


So now for MY card...
Oh, and by the way, I am also entering MY Card in the Color My Heart Color Dare #321 TicTacToe using Color Palette for Tis The Season.  The colors I chose are right across the top, Candy Apple, New England Ivy and Charcoal.  I also added Gold and White Daisy from the Palette.  


The Paper is "Tis The Season" from Close to My Heart and the stamp set is the CTMH September Stamp of the Month. The sentiment is Heat Embossed.    


Thanks for stopping by.  Now hop on over to Susan's Blog and Lisa's Blog to see what they have created this month , then over to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge. We hope you play along!



There are great prizes and no limits to the number of entries. The more entries the better your chances for winning Coffee Lovers' random prizes from over 60 super sponsors!  
"Make it hot, make it now, put a little cream and sugar in, give me coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee" and create a Fall/Winter project to include some sort of coffee, tea or cocoa element. How simple is that?

For inspiration, sing along with Frank Sinatra's The Coffee Song. You'll be glad you did!

Coffee Blog Hop closes at 12:00 midnight Pacific time, Friday, December 7th.

Color My Heart Color Dare #319

I am doing this backwards.  I already entered Color My Heart Color Dare #320 and now I am doing Color My Heart Color Dare #319, but I just realized I still had time to enter this one.  So here it is, Monochromatic - You Choose your Blues.  My Blue is Close to My Hearts Sapphire.  I also used CTMH Stamp Sets D1619 "Woodland Wishes" and B1566 "Frosted Christmas"  and Embossed the background with my Cuttlebug and CTMH's Stars Embossing Folder.


A simple & quick card which I made several of to add to my Christmas Card Collection for 2018.

Color My Heart Color Dare #320

I am finally starting some Christmas Cards!  This one was made for the Color My Heart Color Dare using New England Ivy, Candy Apple Red and Kraft.  I used all Close to My Heart products for this card.  The Cardstock and Ink are the assigned colors for this Dare and I used Stamp Set & Thin Cuts "Oh What Fun" #Z4240.

That's one down, 49 more to go!

Three Amigos Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos MAY 2018  Blog Hop Challenge. We are three Friends with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different product or challenge and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through. 


This Month Our Challenge is "FLOWERS".  I needed a Wedding Card for a Good Friend's Daughter's wedding coming up this summer.  I wanted it to stand out so I did not use the normal colors for this type of card.  I chose the new Close to My Heart paper "Documented" with purples, greens, yellows and pinks.  


Other Close to My Heart Products I used are Stamp sets #C1719 and B1547, Ribbon and Pearls. I also added some other flowers that I had in my stash.
