Bohemian Butterfly

Hi, everyone!  I'm back!  Squeezed in another challenge for Dare to get Dirty week at Splitcoast....this card was made for the DTGD15rainy challenge using the following product from Our Daily Bread designs: ODBD 'Beautiful Boho' Paper Collection and the 'Boho Blessings' stamp set.  The butterfly was stamped in green, colored with mustard and poppy, then cut out with the largest die in the ODBD Custom 'Fancy Fritillary' Dies set.

Have a Sweet Day!

Hi again!  Since this is Dare To Get Dirty week at Splitcoast for Fan Club members, you will see quite a few blog posts from me as I try to do as many challenges as possible.  This card was made for Dina's first challenge (diniA).  I used a new set from North Coast Creations, called 'Ice Cream'.  For DTGD week, I want to make as many CAS cards as possible and this fun stamp set was perfect for a one layer card.  Once it was colored (with sponges and markers), I added some stickles to the ice cream and whipped cream layers and some matching baker's twine.

Count Your Blessings

Hi, everyone!  This is Dare To Get Dirty week over at Splicoast....a week full of special challenges for Fan Club members only.  I can share the details of each card, but not the details of the challenges....if you are a Fan Club member, you will know by the keyword.

This card is for Lydia's first challenge (DTGD15UnderstandblueA).  This card took me waaaaaaay out of my comfort zone!  I rarely use any 'messy' techniques, but for this I swiped four different stamp pads directly to the cardstock, then flicked water drops all over, then flicked some Glimmer Mist droplets as well.  The butterfly image and sentiment are from 'Boho Blessings' by Our Daily Bread designs.

Below are the new (and previously released) items used in my samples for today:

Our Daily Bread designs Boho Faith Our Daily Bread designs Boho Love

Our Daily Bread designs Boho Cross Our Daily Bread designs Boho Paisley Background

Our Daily Bread designs Boho Background Dies Our Daily Bread designs Custom Faith Hope & Love Dies

Our Daily Bread designs Custom Stitched Ovals Dies Our Daily Bread designs Custom Ovals Dies

Our Daily Bread designs Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies Our Daily Bread designs Custom Vintage Labels Dies

My first sample is a bit on the "Clean and Layered" side, but I wanted each beautiful element to stand apart.  The 'Boho Cross' was stamped twice in espresso brown, then sponged and colored with light pink; the center flower was cut out and popped up with foam tape.  The top ivory panel was embossed only with the new ODBD Custom Boho Background Dies, then I used both the ODBD Custom Stitched Ovals Dies and ODBD Custom Ovals Dies to cut the aperature and pink frame, showing the 'Boho Paisley Background' and sentiment from 'Boho Faith' which was also stamped in espresso brown.

My second sample features the ODBD Custom Boho Background Dies set, the 'Boho Faith' image (embossed in pewter then colored with purple and green), cut out with a die from the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies set, framed with the ODBD Custom Vintage Labels Dies set.  The corner flowers are from the 'Boho Love' set (fussy cut and glued to the edge of the Boho Background die cut.  The 'Faith' word from the ODBD Custom 'Faith, Hope, and Love' Dies was cut out of purple and green then layered together. Clear gemstones were added to the flower centers for a little zing.

Happy Camper Birthday

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Karli Miranda aka maestra....congrats, Karli!!!  What a super fun and creative gallery with so many projects other than cards....wow!!  I chose this fun card as inspiration to create this birthday card for my brother-in-law who enjoys camping on the weekends.  Karli used silver buttons as wheels, so I used silver mirror paper for the camper, just like the old-style Air-stream campers.  I used the 'Happy Camper' set by North Coast Creations and a small tag from the ODBD Custom 'Mini Tags' Dies set for the sentiment.  The background scene was sponged over scratch paper masking.  The camper was paper-pieced out of silver and red mirror paper; the windows were sponged yellow onto white cardstock as if the lights were on in the camper.

Inspired Beach House

Happy Saturday, everyone!!!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from this Beach House Pinterest board.....I loved this window shutter which was transformed into a chalkboard and magazine holder....very cool!  So, I decided to create a card with a beach house theme, with the colors of this photo.  To mimic the siding on the house in the photo, I used an embossing folder with thick lines, but they did not show up well in my photo...should have sponged them I guess.  The anchor, seagull, and shells are from the 'Anchor to the Soul' set, the sentiment is from 'Home Sweet Home', cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Mini Tags' Dies.  The window was created with the ODBD Custom 'Welcoming Window' Dies, ODBD Custom 'Window Shutter and Awning' Dies, and the inside 'wallpaper' was stamped with the ODBD 'Chalkboard Fan Background'.  The stripes on the awning were sponged using masking.
