TSOT w/ Double Trouble =FUN


Try Stampin' On Tuesday's new sketch with some really fun options! AND We will be partnering with Double Trouble again for this one. Here are their challenge details:

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, " Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Wow! We missed National Trail Mix Day. Trail Mix, aka GORP (a mix of certain cereals, nuts, pretzels, raisins, dried fruits, M&Ms, etc.).  Sounds yummy, but we have a yummy trail mix for Scrapper's GORP.   

"Do you remember way back years ago when you didn't mix plaids, stripes, checks, flowers and polka dots. Not true today... This is our recipe for Scrapper's GORP.  Look through your stash for stamps, stencils, patterned papers, washi tape, etc., to find at least two or more of the ingredients in our Scrapper's Gorp and include them on your project... it's your choice of ingredients."

You may OPT to use Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch to the right - or not, but this is a perfect sketch for our Scrapper's GORP and if you use this sketch you will earn two chances in our random draw. 

You can stop here... 
Play with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance in our random draw. 

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "I love mixing patterns.  You'll find me in a polka dot striped Shirt, floral pants and a plaid hat.  There are so many things that I have to mix and piece together.  

"Have you ever tried paper piecing technique? It can be a lot of fun!  Here is a YouTube tutorial that may help you with this technique MFT Tips & Tricks - Paper  Piecing.  Include an image(s) and show us your piecing skills.  

Optional Twist:  If you have included paper piecing in your project you will earn another chance in our Random Draw.

Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement 'Scrapper's Gorp, and used the TSOT's sketch, with or without piecing, you are eligible to enter your project HERE  at Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #584 for an additional chance at our random draw.  

Well, I had a very fun time. Though, instead of stamping an image and paper piecing, I cut shapes of scraps to create a house using the vertical shape on the sketch. I adhered the cut scraps to an piece of card stock cut to that shape, then added free-hand cut chimney, door and windows. I colored in the white trees on the scraps for each side, and stamped a holly leaf and berries on the door. It was all popped up with foam tape on a front panel embossed with the Falling Dots folder. (hard to see in the photo) Snow on the chimney was added with a white gel pen and on the window 'shutters.'
A Christmas sentiment is on the inside.

                              Hope to see your creations linked up at TSOT and Double Trouble!  

                                                                   Happy Crafting!

  2. Well, you accomplished the GORP for sure and even though you didn't have a stamp I like your piecing to a cut panel for a house and add ons with piecing windows and doors... What a clever way of using the sketch. Thanks for sharing your DT creativeness with us at Double Trouble... it certainly looked like you had fun. Please come to some of our future fun challenges, a lot of times with your sketch challenge it may give you an idea of a theme or technique... hope to see you for future challenges.

  3. Nicely done cutting all those shapes for this house.

  4. Dena, what a fun card you made using both the TSOT sketch and the Double Trouble "GORP" challenge!! The house you designed is such a creative way to use multiple styles of pattern paper!!! -Donna
