hb2u...from the Dynamic Duos!

Happy Saturday morning!
If you are a follower of the Dynamic Duos Two-Color challenge blog, you will notice something right off the bat here, in the photo above: MORE THAN TWO COLOURS!
That's right Dynamic Duos has a new feature this week, the TRIPLE THREAT.
Yummy colours, huh?
So this week, I've been thinking about diagonals, stripes and text-speak, thanks to these cards:
Carmen Mitchell
Karen Day
Jen Shults
Gotta love the INTERWEBZ for unlimited inspiration.
Here's what I came up with:

I stamped a panel with the awesome One-way Borders stamp set in BUBBLEGUM and RUBY, cut it at an angle, added a border in PEAR embossed with chevrons, then layered on some die-cut letters and other goodies.
It's hard to take a good picture; all those stripes trick the eye and make it look crooked!
I'm thinking this would be fun to do in more masculine colours, for a guy B-day card.

Anyway, the Dynamic Duos design team went to town with this one!
Check the blog for some great examples.

 Here's the deets for joining in the fun:
  1. Any project is welcome...paper crafts, scrapbooking, digital, or crafts...
  2. Please ONLY use the THREE colours listed for your project. Neutrals are welcome.
  3. Combine us with as many other challenges as you would like, except other colour challenges.
  4. Please add our graphic to your blog with a link back to us.
  5. Any offensive or inappropriate posts will be deleted respectively.
I'd love to see what you do with the Dynamic Trio this week!

Happy crafting, and Happy Thanksgiving, my American friends!

  1. Beautiful birthday card. Love the diagonal panels and the row of pink pom poms. Great job with the colors.

  2. How fun! Love the competing angles from the stamped pattern and the cut of the papers. Adds a great dynamic (no pun intended) twist to the card!

  3. So fabulous and funky, Caroline! Love your perfectly stamped borders!

  4. Ha! Caroline - I just saw your card on the Dynamic Duos blog... and came over here to check out your post, only to see my card as one of your inspiration pieces - too funny! Really love what you've done with the chevrons, and especially love the pom pom trim!

  5. This is definitely hip and chick! Love the slant Look. I may have to try that myself!

  6. Great card!! Love all of the details- the pom poms, the diagonal design and the alphabet die cuts- wonderful job for our Triple Threat color challenge!!

  7. This is such a great color combo! With the use of chevron and arrow patterns you've crated a card that I feel is suitable for both men and women - I like that about card.

  8. Such a fun card & great use of the color combo!

  9. Fab triple threat card Caroline - LOVE the diagonals :)
