Amber Waves of Grain

Hi, everyone!!  Today's Ways To Use It Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use marble, granite, stone, etc. on your project.  I chose this paper (SU Naturals White) since it's speckled like concrete, plus I thought that 'amber waves of grain' would fit in with today's memorial of 9-11.  Using two pieces of scratch paper for masking, the orange and mustard sky was sponged (the 'clouds' were sponged over a torn piece of paper), then the wheat image from 'Our Daily Bread' (retired) was stamped.  The sentiment is from 'Serve the Lord'; both sets are from Our Daily Bread designs. Instead of using ribbon, I chose to paper pierce two rows in order for it to be flat.

Inspired Birthday Doily

Hi, everyone!!  It's the weekend.....woo hoo!!!  Today I would like to share a birthday card created for my niece, using two challenges from Splitcoast.  Today's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from one of the photos from the {more} Sprinkled Joy Etsy store,  ......I loved the fresh colors of these straws.  The card design was inspired from this week's Queen for the Day, TrishG.....I fell in love with this gorgeous card and had to try my hand at recreating it! I used the Birthday Doily set (inked the stamp with markers, then spritzed before stamping) and Gingham Background, both from Our Daily Bread designs.

Below are the stamps and dies I am featuring in my post today, either in my two new creations or sneak peeks from the past few days:

ODBD Quilts ODBD Sewing

ODBD Hand Knit ODBD Custom Knitting Basket and Yarn Dies

ODBD Custom Doily Dies ODBD Doily Blessings

ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies ODBD Ornate Hearts Dies

My first sample for today features the "Quilts" stamp set, ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, and the ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Dies.  The quilt image was stamped in black, colored with purple/yellow/green/peach/pink markers, then the center was cut out with the 2nd smallest die in the ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Dies set.  The heart was made into a five-layer button (see tutorial here).  The first two words of the sentiment were stamped on white, then cut out by hand and popped up with foam tape; the 'sew' word was stamped onto the card base through the heart opening (using scratch paper to mask each side).  The border frame was created by mitering four borders cut out with the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, then sewing embroidery thread through the openings.

My next sample features the image and a sentiment from the "Sewing" set, along with the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies and ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Dies once again.  The stitched border image and sentiment were stamped in black onto ivory cardstock, then matted with some aida cloth which was stitched with blue embroidery thread.  The plaid strip is from some scrap fabric which has been in my stash for many years. The heart die cut through the fabric easily; after adhering it to cardstock and cutting out the holes with a Cropodile, Glossy Accents was added.  The same thread used for the stitching was used in the button and also threaded through the border die cut.

Emboss Resist Doily Blessings

Happy Saturday!!!!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find a photo from Audrie's Inspiration Pinterest board......I loved the colors of this photo and incorporated them in my card.  The doily and sentiment I used are from 'Doily Blessings' from Our Daily Bread designs (available Sept 1st).  The doily was clear embossed onto white cardstock, then using the embossing resist technique, I sponged green, yellow, peach, and pink inks onto the white cardstock.  After matting the panel, the edges were paper pierced with a template and the piercing around the doily stamp was freehand.  The paper button in the center was cut with the ODBD Custom Doily Dies set (also available Sept 1st).  Pearls and baker's twine were added for embellishments.  I will also be submitting this to the Friday Free4All Challenge, which was to use one little button on your project.

Doily Blessings / ODBD Sneak Peek!

Hi, everyone!!  Today is the first day for sneak peeks of the September 1st new releases from Our Daily Bread designs.....woo hoo!!!!  My shaped card and popped up doily were both cut out with the upcoming ODBD Custom Doily Dies Set.  The scripture is from 'Doily Blessings', the designer paper is from the ODBD 'Blushing Rose Collection', and the ivory seam binding bow was tied with a Bow Easy.  The general card design was based on this shaped card by Jenn Cochran, who is this week's Queen for the Day, along with our new QFTD hostess......congrats on both accounts!!!
