WELCOME to Challenge #31 - Let the Troubles Begin

"Hit the Road" 

"Holiday/Vacation Theme with Embossing" 

THING 1: Double Trouble 
says, "It's time to hit the road."  

It's a "dry heat" here in Arizona so include dry and/or heat embossing using the bonus theme at Pile It On "Transportation and/or Vacation" themed project. You can stop here and you have already met this challenge so Pile It On. 

Or, if you included Twisted Sister's optional twist below you will receive another chance at our random draw.   


THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "From Easy Street to Broadway I usually take the scenic route. I always have my GPS so I don't take the wrong road."  Include a “sign” on your card that you’d see in your holiday/vacation travels. 

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random prize draw if you include a sign.   

THING 2: Double Dare 
says, "Pile It On's theory is to create a project using More than One Challenge."  So, if you have created a project for our challenge you will have already reached their requirement by entering your project in Pile It On Challenge #155 "Transportation and/or Vacation" theme.  

Check out the Design Team blogs to see what other challenges may meet your project and Pile It On.

WELCOME to Challenge #30 -
Let the Troubles Begin

"Stencil/Embossing Techniques"






THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "My mind has gone blank... don't let your backgrounds go there!"

When creating a background, use a stencil technique in your project using spritz, paint, sponge, etc. OR if you don't have a stencil use an embossing folder. You can make a stencil using a die or cutting machine. In other words, no design paper for your background.

Have you "herd"? These techniques can create a great scene for Thing 3's Optional Twist.


THING 3: Twisted Sister
Have you "herd" the news? Twisted Sister lives on a farm, Eee-I-Eee-I-Oh. And on this farm she has some cows, Eee-I-Eee-I-Oh.

Sing along with Old McDonald (song) and include a farm critter on your project. Even if your farm critter is not in the song, we can always add another verse!

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random prize draw if you include a "farm critter".


THING 2: Double Dare
If you have included a farm critter you can enter your project into 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #27.

The Crafty Crazies say, "All you need is a critter. BTW we define critter as anything with 4 legs, or fins, or wings, whether animal, bird, fish, even insects, and it can be mythical, fictional, imaginary, etc., as long as it's not human."

WELCOME to Challenge #29 - Let the Troubles Begin

"Brown Bag-It Day" 


THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "In celebration of National Brown Bag-It Day, I've asked the Unknown Comic from the late Gong Show to inspire our challenge. Use Kraft paper, even a paper bag for your project."

Don't get the Gong, come play aLong!

Don't stop here...for more fun check out the optional Sketch challenge below.


THING 2: Double Dare
says, "What a great sketch to use for Kraft as an accent in your design, so many choices of what panel(s) to use." 

It's Optional...if you use this sketch you can also submit to Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge 409 between the dates of May 20th - June 2nd. Link your project HERE and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw. 


Use the DT cards below for ideas or use your own interpretation of the sketch. Feel free to change the orientation... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. You may also modify shapes as long as we can see the basic sketch in your project. 


THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "In my opinion I've been berry, berry good. Celebrate National Pick Strawberry Day with me and include strawberry(s) in your project and you can earn an additional chance at our random draw." 

This is an optional twist; however, this sketch offers a perfect opportunity to use strawberry(s) as an embellishment or focal point.
