Seasons Change, God Remains!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Ways To Use It Challenge is to incorporate apples into your project since Johnny Appleseed's birthday was this week.  I was super excited when I discovered that Our Daily Bread designs new 'Seasons Change' image was the same scale as the 'Autumn Tree' set....woo hoo!!!  The tree was stamped onto a panel cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, then the grass was sponged over a scratch paper mask.  The clouds were sponged over a die cut cloud, cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies set.  The wheelbarrow from 'Seasons Change' was stamped on a different piece of cardstock, then cut out with the ODBD Custom Wheelbarrow Die and popped up with foam tape over the rest of the scene, which was partially water-colored and partially colored with markers.

Golden Fall

Hi, everyone!  My card today was super quick and easy to make....with no coloring!  I used gold embossing powder on white for the image and sentiment from the 'A-Maize-ing' set by Our Daily Bread designs.  Here are the dies from Our Daily Bread designs which I used: ODBD Custom Indian Corn Die, ODBD Custom Pierced Ovals Dies, and ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The background panel was dry embossed with a fall-themed embossing folder then cut out with the rectangle die. Before adding the top layers, some Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist was sprayed.  Gold cording and gold brads were added for embellishments.

Grande Birthday!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Penni aka razldazl...congrats, Penni!!!  I chose this beautiful card to case today because I love the curved border and layout.  For my card, I started by choosing a pattern from the ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection, cut the fancy border with the ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Border Dies, then placed the cut piece into a die from the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies set.  The sentiment is from 'I Love Coffee' and the coffee cup was cut from the ODBD Custom Beverage Cup Dies set.  The tiny hearts were cut with the ODBD Custom Umbrellas Dies set.  Some paper piercing was added to the curve since it looked a bit plain.  I will also be submitting this card to the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Fly Like A......Turtle?!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the 'Digital Pencil Too' site....so many fun digi images there!  I bought this cute turtle stamp from Hobby Lobby to make my nephew's birthday card (since he requested a turtle theme), but had no idea what I was going to do with it, UNTIL I saw this adorable digi set from the inspiration site!  Making this card actually made me giddy!!!  Three balloons were cut from the ODBD Custom Balloons and Streamers Dies set; the clouds were sponged over a template cut from the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies set; the sentiment is from an ODBD set, Keep Climbing, and was cut out with the ODBD Custom Ovals Dies set, matted with the ODBD Custom Pierced Ovals Dies.  The olive frame was dry embossed then cut out with two dies from the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. A clear glaze pen was used for the eyes and sections of the shell to make them shiny.

Sorry, I Frogot!

Hi, everyone! Today's Ways To Use It Challenge is to incorporate feet or toes into your project since it is National Hobbit day. Do froggie toes count?! :)

This is a card for my nephew.....when I mailed his birthday card a few weeks ago, I forgot to include birthday money.....oops!!!! I love this oldie but goodie set by Stampin Up, 'Unfrogettable'....I have used it sooooo many times over the years!  As a matter of fact, you can see all of my creations with this set by clicking HERE!  For the background of the scene, I used a scratch paper mask for sponging the ground and the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies to cut a template for sponging the clouds.  The main panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  I also used masking to place the frog on the toadstool and to place the crown on his head.

Coffee Is Always A Good Idea!

Hi, everyone!  I'm sure by now that ya'all have seen the gorgeous samples by my Sistah Sticks (ODBD Design Team Sisters), featuring the new ODBD Custom Surprise Box Die?  If not, you can see them in the ODBD Gallery HERE!  Anyhoo.....you know me, I'm always trying to "think outside of the box" (pun intended!) when it comes to new and different ways to use ODBD's dies and stamp sets.  This is one of those times.  If you look at the large die which cuts out the box and flaps, picture the box upside down with the flaps (trimmed down and) folded in to make an enclosed box.  I used cardboard so that it would be sturdy for the coffee station at work.

Once the box was glued together, it was decorated with a pattern from the ODBD Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection, along with the ODBD Custom Bitty Borders Dies, ODBD Custom Circles and Pierced Circles Dies.  The fun sentiment is from 'I Love Coffee'.

This little box, while a bit short for the stir sticks, will be sturdy enough not to get knocked over, unlike the paper cup which is being used presently.

Here is a close-up view of the sentiment panel......I agree with this statement 100%!!!!!!

Next time I play with the Surprise Box Die, I'm going to create some bookmarks with the two long sections.  One day I will make an actual Surprise Box, but I'm not sure yet when that will be....hopefully soon since I haven't tried it yet!

Thanks for visiting!

God bless!

Favor From The Lord

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Gail aka mamaxsix....congrats, Gail!!!!  Wow, what an immense and awesome gallery...nearly 2000 projects!!!  It was very difficult to choose from so many wonderful cards, but when I saw this cool faux wood card, I knew it was the one!  I usually stay away from messy techniques but I just had to give this a try...it was so much easier than I thought!  My card is for a co-worker who loves hunting, so I used the Father's Day set by Our Daily Bread designs, along with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles, Pierced Squares Dies, and Pierced Ovals Dies. The 'faux wood' look was created by swiping two different brown ink pads across a piece of mustard cardstock, then the panel was die cut and the edges inked.
