Pottery Inspired Fishing Creel

Created by Rick McKinney MKM Pottery Tools
Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose a piece of pottery from the Bowls Pinterest Board for your inspiration.  Not only did I swoon over the colors of this awesome piece, but the woven basket on top and the beads on the front reminded me of this fishing creel image and fishing lures in this 'Fishing Basket' stamp from Our Daily Bread designs.  The scripture verse is from 'The Waves on the Sea'; the card base was stamped with the 'Fishing Net Background' and the panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. Some linen thread was knotted and strung across the top of the image panel.

Life Is Better With Sisters!

Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 602
Hi, everyone!  Thanks to an awesome Color Challenge (cantaloupe, coral, and saffron) plus a fabulous Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast this week, I was able to easily put together this birthday card for my sister.  The saffron and cantaloupe led me right to the 'Sweet As Perfume' set from Our Daily Bread designs since most of the Plumeria (or Frangipani) blossoms I saw in Hawaii looked just like this (and smelled like heaven!!)  The white panels (cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles and ODBD Custom Pierced Squares Dies) were sponged in saffron and cantaloupe, plus the rectangle background was stamped with the image in saffron.  The sentiment is also from 'Sweet As Perfume' but I cut it apart to remove the word 'friends' and add the banner instead. The letters were stamped with the 'Pennant Swag Alphabet'; the pennant frame was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pennant Swag Die.  Since this card makes me long for another trip to Hawaii, I will submit it to this month's Fan Club Central Theme Challenge (This Land Is My Land). I will also be adding this to the link up for the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge which is 'Anything That Grows...with ODBD'.

Buford Smiles For A Selfie!

Hi, everyone!  I love vacation days because I get to play along with the challenges at Splitcoast!!  Today's Clean and Simple Challenge theme is 'Hey, Sunshine!' and the Technique Lover's Challenge is to create a Stamp Selfie card.  In order to combine the two challenges, I used the 'Pool Time Buford' image from North Coast Creations along with these items from sister company Our Daily Bread designs: ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, ODBD Custom Pierced Squares Dies, 'You Bless Me So' Stamp/Die Duo, and the ODBD Birthday Brights Paper Collection. Buford was stamped onto the die cut square, covered with a mask, then the scene was sponged behind him. I will also be submitting this to the Fan Club Central Theme Challenge 'This Land is My Land' (road trip / vacation) and the Word Play Challenge: H=hot weather; O=ocean; M=masking; E=embossed die cuts.

Fishers Of Men

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Vickie Y.....congrats, Vickie!!!  I chose this awesome CAS (clean and simple) card as inspiration for this birthday card for my nephew.  The 'Fishing Basket' image, scripture verse from 'The Waves On The Sea', 'Fishing Net Background'  and ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies are all from Our Daily Bread designs.  The image was stamped in Stazon Black, water-colored and highlighted with markers, then aqua and brown inks were sponged around the image.

Thank You Daisies

Happy Saturday!!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is for all of us flower lovers out there!  Choose an arrangement from the Petals website for inspiration for your card or project.  I needed to make a thank you card for my sister for organizing a party for my 50th birthday last weekend.  She loves anything yellow and summer-y so I chose the Shasta Daisies for inspiration.  I started out by stamping the 'Daisy' image from Our Daily Bread designs, die-cutting the frame/image panel around it with the ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies, sponged the oval edges with green and kraft (like the photo) while still inside the die (the daisies were masked), then removed the mask and colored the image with markers.  Since the flowers in my inspiration photo were on a wooden counter, I used the 'Wood Background' stamp with Versamark on a Kraft card base, stamped the sentiment from 'Forever Friends' and popped up the image panel with foam tape.  I could have added ribbon and bling, but I liked it simple and plain, especially so that I could mail it with one stamp.  :)

Crocheted Poppies

Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 601
Hi, everyone!  This week's Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast was challenging for me at first since it had quite a few different elements, but once I decided on the Crocheted Circle Poppy (and ODBD Custom Crocheted Circle Die), it went together pretty easily.  The Crocheted Border was stamped in black, cut out with the ODBD Custom Crocheted Border Die, then was trimmed into sections by hand and placed around the bottom edge.  The yellow panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies set; a rectangle was cut first, then the angled edge was cut with the same die, using the "out of the box" technique.  The squares were cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Squares Dies (to match the rectangle).  Both the card base and yellow panel were stamped in Versamark with the matching Crocheted Background stamp for a little texture.  The sentiment is from 'Doily Blessings'.

To Thoughtful You, From Thankful Me

Hi, everyone!  For my card today, I have combined the Featured Stamper and Inspiration Challenges over at Splitcoast.  The Inspiration Challenge was to choose a photo from the Black and White Pinterest Board....I loved this photo and thought that I could find a frilly die cut to mimic the awesome cuff on the shirt. Today's Featured Stamper is Rita aka Scootsv....congrats, Rita!  Once I saw this beautiful card, I knew that it was perfect to go with the Inspiration photo I had chosen.  For my card, I used the ODBD Custom Decorative Corners Dies, ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies (resized to make a corner), the ODBD Custom Fancy Fritillary Dies, along with a sentiment from 'Thank You Sentiments'.
