Wildflower Shadow Stamping

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Audrie's Favorite Candles Board from Pinterest......I loved these beautiful candles with the simple, monochromatic design.  I couldn't tell what the exact colors were, but I used two gray tones for my card. There are actually two different images here (from Our Daily Bread designs)....the wildflower silhouette, stamped in light gray, is from 'Miss You' and the detailed stamp (and sentiment) in dark gray are from 'Life Is a Gift'....what I love is that the stamps do not match exactly, but I love how the shadow stamping technique looks with them.  The sentiment panel and corner piece were cut out using the ODBD Custom 'Ornate Borders and Flower' Dies and the card base was embossed using the ODBD Faithful Fish Pattern Die and Debossing Plate....though the Jesus fish images were covered, I thought it would make a cool border.  The gray embroidery thread was twirled and twisted a bit before adhering....just trying something different than straight! :)

Wildflower Silhouette Hello!

Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge SC525
Hi, everyone!! Today's Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast was a PERFECT opportunity to share a sneak peek of some upcoming goodies from Our Daily Bread designs....yay!! The background was stamped in dark brown onto aqua cardstock with the new 'Wildflower Silhouette Background'; the same stamp was used with aqua ink on white cardstock for the top panel and the image was lined up with the bottom image.  The ODBD Custom 'Hello' Die was cut out of dark brown and popped up with foam tape. The background image and Hello sentiment were both highlighted with a glitter pen for a little glitz.  I will also be submitting this to the Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light Challenge, which is 'anything goes with ODBD stamps'!

Nautical Get Well Card

Hi, everyone!  Today's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Tracy Valure aka Scrapgirl1210....congrats, Tracy!!!  I chose this awesome card from her gallery.....loved the layout and nautical theme!  I needed a card to send to a long-time friend and mentor who is having some health issues, so I chose the ODBD 'Faithful Fish Pattern Die and Debossing Plate' for the background, plus the 'Anchor to Soul' set for the image and sentiment and 'Fishing Net Background' to go with the nautical theme.  The image panel was cut with the ODBD Custom 'Elegant Ovals' die set and the sentiment banner was cut by hand.  The straight lines were pierced using a template, but the image panel was pierced freehand.

That's How I Roll!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Angela Maine's blog, From The Tool Shed......no problem finding inspiration there....Angela is AMAZING!!!  After drooling over her creations for quite some time, I chose this beautiful card because of the angled layout.....definitely pushes me out of my "squared and straight" comfort zone!! I used Stazon Fuschia Ink for the Grunge Piano Background and sentiments from 'Rock Star' and 'Sing Thy Grace', all by Our Daily Bread designs.  The leaves were cut from the leftover background using the ODBD Custom 'Fancy Foliage' Dies and the little flower is actually two layered crosses cut from the ODBD Custom 'Ornamental Crosses' Dies set, with three little pink pearls in the center.

Inspired Candy Pail

Hi, everyone! Today's Friday Free4All Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from this heart cake photo. I created a tag to decorate this yummy tin of candies (the tin came from the $1 Spot at Target....score!!!) The heart was cut from a Spellbinders die, the first half of the sentiment is from 'Poinsettia Tag Set' (retired) by Our Daily Bread designs, and the 'Angie' stamp is something I found at a flea market years ago. The cellophane bags and ties came from Michael's and the tag was tied onto the tin with silver cord.

Rock Star Thank You!

Hi, everyone! Today's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Claudia aka cjzim.....congrats, Claudia!!  Check out this cool star-shaped chipboard ornament from her gallery....love it!  Instead of an ornament, I made a shaped card with the ODBD Custom 'Sparkling Stars' Dies, then puched a hole and made a tag for this plate of  'Thank You Cookies' for a friend.  The image from 'Rock Star' was stamped in navy onto kraft, cut out with the same die set, then popped up over the designer paper from the ODBD 'Patriotic Paper Collection'

Shout For Joy!

Hi, everyone!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the MOD Wedding Cake Board from Pinterest.....I fell in love with the peach and pink roses in this gorgeous photo, which took me straight to this Boho Chic designer paper.  The birdie and scripture verse are from 'Music Speaks', framed with circles dies and a doily from the ODBD Custom 'Doily Dies' set, popped up over a die from the ODBD Custom 'Beautiful Borders' Dies with peach ribbon threaded through.
