DRU Challenge #191/Double Trouble Joint Challenge

 


IT'S TIME FOR A NEW CHALLENGE!
Thanks to all you participated in our last challenge.  Please scroll down to see the Winner's post.


The DRU challenge theme today is:

The theme for the month of April, 2022 is Flowers/Spring

(remember, you MUST use at least one metal die to qualify for the prize... and please tell us the die company you have used in your project.)

We are partnering with the Double Trouble Challenge Blog again this year and having a joint challenge collaboration.  It's fun and easy and you have a chance to win prizes both here on the DRU Challenge as well as the Double Trouble Challenge #108! The Double Trouble Challenge runs from April 18 - May 1 and their theme is "Frame It" - use a basic metal die in your project.


Here are the options to include if you want to join the Double Trouble challenge. You can enter the Double Trouble "Frame It" challenge #108 here.

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker (Double Trouble Challenge)
says, "How many of us have a Cricut or similar machine that sits idle?  Since the world of metal dies has emerged how often do you pull out your Cricut to cut a basic shape?  It seems most of us have accumulated some dies and now use a die cutter (Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Gemini).  I'm challenging you to select a basic-shaped metal die from your stash and use it on your project, e.g. frame, square, rectangle, triangle for your image and/or sentiment...  you get the idea.  

You can stop here... 
OR  
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance in the Double Trouble random draw.  


Thing 3:  Twisted Sister  (Double Trouble Challenge)
says, "It isn't difficult for me to pick out a shaped metal die for a frame and/or sentiment but I have accumulated so many other pretty metal dies.  

"Mother's Day is around the corner... this is a good time to honor your Mom or someone special who has had an impact on your life.  My optional twist is to include flower(s) and/or butterfly(s) on your project. I'm going to use some of my pretty dies, however, if you don't have floral or butterfly dies, just use patterned paper, stenciling, or embossing.   

Optional Twist:  If you have included flowers and/or butterflies on your project you will earn another chance in the Double Trouble Random Draw. 


Thing 2: Double Dare (DRU Challenge)
says, "If you have included at least one metal die on your project you are eligible to enter at Dies R Us #191 HERE. There is a limit of three entries and make sure you post your entry on or before April 28th and you will be eligible for an extra Double Trouble random draw chance. The theme is Flowers/Spring.
      
AND... 
If you have used any brand of dies that Dies R Us sells in their store, you will be eligible for an extra Double Trouble random draw chance as well as a chance to win the DRU $10 gift code prize.  Your die may already qualify. Click HERE to view the dies on their left-hand sidebar. Be sure to mention in your post if you used a die that is sold at DRU's store for a chance the DRU random draw. 


SO basically the options for winning prizes are: 
  Thing 1: Use a basic shaped metal frame die to enter the Double Trouble challenge. 
  Thing 2: Use a metal die that DRU sells and include the theme Spring/Flowers to enter the DRU challenge and the random draw from Double Trouble. 
  Thing 3: Use a metal frame die and add a flower or butterfly to project for another entry to the Double Trouble challenge.




If you used a metal die to join our DRU Challenge and it's a basic frame shape, you have already completed all the requirements for both challenges.  If you've only used a die (but not a basic shape), you are still eligible for our DRU Challenge, but it won't qualify for the Double Trouble Challenge. 

(remember, you MUST use at least one metal die to qualify for the DRU prize... and please tell us the die company you have used in your project.)
