Sparkle! Triple Challenge Combo

Hi, everyone!  I have used several challenges in the making of this card.  This week's 500th Color Challenge at Splitcoast is to use one of four color combos.....I chose the winter combo.  Also, the Clean and Simple Challenge is to use piercing, so I couldn't pass that up!!!  Also, the ODBD Shining the Light "Anything Goes with ODBD Stamps" Challenge is still underway, so I will be linking up to that as well.

I have combined the new "Christmas Pennant Row" set (sparkle pennant), cut out with the ODBD Custom "Pennant Row" Dies, along with the "Warm Wishes" set.  When I first saw the "sparkle" sentiment, I immediately thought of using it with a snow scene.  After stamping and coloring the scene, I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter glue and irridescent gemstones for some sparkle.

For my card sample below, I chose to use a pattern from the "Christmas Collection" Designer Paper pack, stamped the verse from "Scripture Collection 9" directly onto the the designer paper, sponged the edges, adhered to an ivory mat, then paper pierced the edges plus an oval around the verse (using a die as a template to freehand pierce.)  The "Glory" pennant from "Christmas Pennant Row" was stamped in dark brown onto ivory then cut out with the "ODBD Custom Pennant Row" Dies, matted in green, then popped up with foam tape.  Baker's twine and brown pearls were added as embellishments.

Nameframe Baby Gift

Happy Saturday!!! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the artwork at Fine Art America. Okay, I'm cheating since I won't be home to stamp today.....my nameframe below was already done, but when I saw this adorable blue elephant, I just had to submit for this challenge!!  This is a gift I made for my little sister, Rebecca, who is expecting her first child any day now.  The nursery colors are chocolate brown and mint green with zoo animals and sports.  I did not have sports stamps small enough to work, so I cut the different balls out of designer paper from Bo Bunny.  The animal stamps are Stampendous Baby Invite.

Here is a close-up:

This is my sister, Rebecca.....isn't she gorgeous?  I can't wait to meet little Zayne!!!

Birthday Balloons

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Mel Sharp aka stampinandstuff....congrats, Mel!!  I chose this fun card for inspiration in the making of this birthday card for a dear friend.  The balloons were cut from Prima designer paper, using two die sets from Our Daily Bread designs, the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies and the ODBD Custom Matting Circles Dies.  The sentiment is from Doily Blessings, also from ODBD.

Inspirational ODBD Keychain

Hello!!  I bought a handful of keychains at JoAnn's several years ago, but put them into my "to-be-altered" stash and forgot about them.  My little brother is away at college and wanted to remind him that he is not alone even though he is far from family.....God is always there and is "good all the time"!  This new set from Our Daily Bread designs, 'God's Timing' was perfect for this project!! 

I cut a piece of white cardstock to fit the insert, stamped the clock image and hands in Stazon Midnight Blue (stamped off), then stamped the sentiment in Stazon Jet Black.  The edges were sponged in caramel and speckles were made with a marker.  I used Stazon so that the image and message wouldn't "run" if the keychain were to get wet.  The paper in the background for the photo is from the 'Blooming Garden Collection' from Our Daily Bread designs.

I will be submitting this to the ODBD Shining the Light "Anything Goes" Challenge....use any stamps from Our Daily Bread designs for a chance to win a gift certificate for $15 toward ODBD stamps (in the stamp column)!!

Surprise!! It's a Birthday Blog Hop for Kelley!!

Hey, everyone!!!  It's Kelley's birthday tomorrow and we are surprising her a day early with a surprise blog hop!!  Happy Birthday, Kelley!!!  Thanks for being the bestest boss evah!!!  Mwaaah!!   My ODBD designer sisters and I have made special birthday cards for Kelley....below is a link list for you to follow and see them all.  Please make sure to stop by the Our Daily Bread designs Blog when you're finished and wish Kelley a Happy Birthday!

Angie....you are HERE!!

My birthday card for Kelley features the following items from the Our Daily Bread designs arsenal:

ODBD Ornate Borders Sentiments, ODBD Custom Asters and Leaves Dies, ODBD Custom Decorative Vase Die, ODBD Custom Antiqu Labels and Border Dies, ODBD Custom Quatrefoil Pattern Die, Card Designer Angie Crockett

I knew I wanted to make something "girly" and pink, so I began by cutting three sets of flowers from ivory cardstock using the ODBD Custom Asters and Leaves Dies, stenciled them with pink then sponged the edges with caramel and layered them over the ODBD Custom Decorative Vase Die which was cut from caramel cardstock and stenciled with caramel ink.  The sentiment from 'Ornate Borders Sentiments' was stamped on an ivory panel cut with the ODBD Custom Antique Labels and Border Dies, popped up over the ivory background panel which was dry-embossed using the ODBD Custom Quatrefoil Pattern Die.  Lots of pearls and 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist were added after the edges were paper pierced and sponged and the matching ribbon was added.

Thanks so much for helping us to celebrate Kelley's birthday!!  We are so very grateful that the Lord led her to start this amazing, God-centered business!  What a blessing to be a part of such a wonderful company!!!  We are grateful to all of YOU for supporting us......Mwaaah!!!

God bless!!

Hi, everyone!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is totally yummy!!!!  Choose a photo from Cotton and Crumbs website (gorgeous cakes, cupcakes, and cookies).....I fell in love with the colors and roses of this amazing cake (photo at the left), so I dug into my special stash and grabbed this designer paper by My Minds Eye, plus the following items from Our Daily Bread designs: 'Rose Bouquet' stamp set, 'Ornate Border Sentiments', ODBD Custom 'Beautiful Borders' Dies, ODBD 'Ornate Borders and Flowers Dies' (corner and sentiment panel).
