Serenity Prayer

Hi, everyone!! Today's Color Challenge at Splitcoast is to use Old Olive, Calypso Coral, and Lost Lagoon, with a 'dessert' option of using something recycled. I used a stencil to blend the three colors together onto a one layer white card, then stamped the 'Serenity Prayer' from Our Daily Bread designs over it. I did not choose the 'dessert' option since I only had a few minutes to create the card before leaving for work.

College Encouragement

Hi, everyone! Today's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to do some coloring on your CAS card. I made this card for a friend's grand-daughter who just went away for college. She is anxiously awaiting for her first piece of mail at her dorm, so a group of us are sending cards and letters to her this week to wish her well. I have used the 'Walk with Jesus' set by Our Daily Bread designs, colored with Pink Pirouette and Mauve Mist.

Sunset Beach

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Christyne aka Coconutmuffn....congrats, Christyne!!!  I chose this beautiful card to case because I loved the Kraft card base and the cool layout with the curved panel.  I used the 'My Lifeguard' set by Our Daily Bread designs.  The image was stamped, cut out with paper snips and a craft knife, then popped up over a scene which was sponged over scratch paper.  Instead of using a border die along the side, I used burlap ribbon since this is a masculine card. The sentiment is from 'Flip Flop Fun', also from ODBD.

Relax!

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the watercolor paintings of this Etsy store.  I loved the soft yellow and brown tones of this seashell....though I did not have a shell stamp, I did use the sand dollar image from 'Ocean Treasures' and incorporated the same colors into it.  After watercoloring the image, I also painted on some 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist for some sparkle.  The sentiment is from the 'Flip Flop Fun' set.  I will also submit this for the Friday Free4All Challenge which is to use one or two words.

Rustic Mountains Birthday Card

Happy Friday!! Woo hoo!!! I'm excited about the weekend because I have some new goodies from Our Daily Bread designs for the September release....haha, yes, I'm a tease...you have to wait until next Friday when Sneak Peeks begin!!!

But meanwhile, I have made this card for two challenges over at Splitcoast.....today's Friday Free4All Challenge is to use one or two words only, no more. The card design is based on this gorgeous card by Diane Cramer aka fionna51 who is this week's Featured Stamper....congrats, Diane!!! The image I used is from 'Keep Climbing' and the sentiment is from 'Ornate Border Sentiments', both from Our Daily Bread designs. Instead of doodling, I used paper piercing.  After seeing the photo, I wish I would have sponged it more, but too late now!! :)

Stenciled Ferns CAS Style

Hi, everyone!! This week's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use stencils on your project. Two weekends ago, I picked up some stencils at the Cincinnati stamp show and I'm super excited to use one of them today!! The ferns were sponged in green and yellow against a white panel, then a sentiment from 'Anchor the Soul' by Our Daily Bread designs was stamped, paper pierced the edges, and added some cotton ribbon and three pearls.

You Are So Cool!

Happy Saturday, everyone!!!  Today I have made a card....just because!  After the Dare To Get Dirty card-making marathon, my birthday card stash is in pretty good shape, so I'm stamping today just for fun!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to pick a color combo from the Designs Seeds Blog as inspiration......when I saw this delicious photo and color combo, I knew that I had to break out the "You're the Bomb" set from North Coast Creations (sister company to Our Daily Bread designs).  Growing up, my siblings and I would LOVE when mom would buy Melon Pops....so refreshing and so yummy!!!  The image was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, colored with celery and caramel, then coated with Versamark, covered in clear embossing powder, then heat embossed.  The sentiment was stamped in celery and clear embossed as well.  The background was created by sponging celery over a new stencil (LOVE!), then dry embossing on either side with a stars embossing folder, then scored two lines with my Scor-buddy to separate the sections.
