Happy Birthday, Cowboy!

Hi, everyone!! I've combined this week's Sketch Challenge 594 with Color Challenge 584, which is curry, pumpkin, watermelon, plus your choice of green for dessert (I hope adding a neutral brown is okay).  Instead of circles, I changed the shaped elements to stars since they went with the cowboy theme.  This is a birthday card for one of my nephews.  I have used the following items from Our Daily Bread designs in the making of my card:  Ride 'Em Cowboy, Wood Background, ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars Dies, and ODBD Custom Double Stitched Stars.  The medium sized die-cut star was turned into a button with a hole punch and strip of leather.

Boho Hello!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Sarah J Moerman....congrats, Sarah!!!  I chose this amazing card to case today since this is normally not a layout that I would think to use. I used the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies to cut out the designer paper (from the ODBD Beautiful Boho Paper Collection) and eggplant mat, adhered the layers to the card then trimmed the edges.  The ODBD Custom Hello Die was also cut from the eggplant cardstock.  It was hard to keep from adding embellishments, but it will be great to mail a card with only one stamp for once! :)

You Light Up My Life!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I'm loving this week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast, which is all about decorative light switches and outlet covers....I chose this embossed line outlet cover as my inspiration piece.  I will save this card for my hubby's birthday (since he does a bit of electrical work as a hobby).....good thing he doesn't read my blog! :) I thought that this was going to be a simple card to make, however, the trial and error on the two outlets took over an hour...eek!!!!  I used several punches, a corner rounder, and my Scor-buddy to complete the outlet cover and plug-ins.  The following products from Our Daily Bread designs were also used: sentiment from 'The Light of Life' (retired), stars cut with the ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars and ODBD Custom Double Stitched Stars Dies, and designer paper from the ODBD Patriotic Paper Collection.

Coral Birthday Wishes

Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 593
Hi, everyone!  This week's Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast should have been an easy one, but I have to admit that I struggled quite a bit.  My first card was a total failure, so I ended up creating a clean and simple version of the layout instead.  The designer paper is from the ODBD Cozy Quilt Paper Collection and the sentiment is from 'Medallion Sentiments' (cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Ovals Dies), all from Our Daily Bread designs.  The matching coral ribbon, paper piercing and pearls were added for embellishments.

Our Daily Bread designs Howdy Our Daily Bread designs Ride 'Em Cowboy

Our Daily Bread designs Wood Background Our Daily Bread designs Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies

Our Daily Bread designs Custom Pierced Ovals Dies Our Daily Bread designs Custom Ovals Dies

Our Daily Bread designs Custom Fence Die Our Daily Bread designs Circles Dies

My first card is a CAS and OLC design (Clean and Simple) and (One Layer Card), featuring the new "Howdy" set.  No one said that this silhouette has to be a guy, so I made this birthday card for my niece who is a horse lover and 100% country girl.  I made a mask by tearing a piece of scratch paper, temporarily adhered both sides to my white card base, sponged purple and pink, removed the masks and stamped the silhouette and sentiment in black.  Baker's twine and three pink pearls were added for embellishments.

My second card features both the "Howdy" set and "Ride 'Em Cowboy" set, along with the Wood Background stamp, ODBD Custom Fence Die, ODBD Custom Pierced Ovals Dies, ODBD Custom Ovals Dies, ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies and the ODBD Custom Circles Dies (to cut a mask to sponge the sun).  The large cactus from "Howdy" was stamped in green then fussy cut.  The scripture verse and half of the image from "Ride 'Em Cowboy" was stamped in green, cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Ovals Dies and matted with the ODBD Custom Ovals Dies set.  Using a die from the ODBD Custom Circles Dies set, a mask was created in order to sponge the orange sun.  The background panel (cut out and "re-sized" into a square with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies set) and green fence (cut with the ODBD Custom Fence Die) were stamped in green with the Wood Background stamp. Linen thread was sewn into the top corner (after piercing with a paper piercer) to coordinate with the thread woven around the fence.

Ombre Blue Thanks

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose a color combination from the given Pinterest board and design your project around it.  I'm a sucker for blue tones so I chose this Blue Tile combination for inspiration.  I started with a white rectangle, sponged the different shades of blue all over from light to dark, then used the ODBD Custom Majestic Medallion Dies set to cut out the pattern.  Lots of tiny pieces of foam tape were added to the back of the die cut piece to pop it up over the panel which was stamped with the Medallion Background stamp (after stamping off for a lighter color).  The sentiment panel was stamped with the Medallion Sentiments set, cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, then matted with the ODBD Custom Filigree Frames dies.  I didn't want to cover up the die cut or gradient colors, so only pearls were added as embellishments.
