Frangipani Calendar Page

Agraria San Franciso Lemon Verbena AirEssence Diffuser
Hi again, everyone!  My first card today was pretty quick, so I'm going back for a second helping of the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast!  When I saw this Lemon Verbena diffuser, it reminded me of the frangipani (plumeria) flowers from the stamp set 'Sweet As Perfume' from ODBD.  I've been working on a birthday calendar for my mother-in-law and I'm so excited to use this stamp set for the July page. Backstory: Hubby and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon (over 25 years ago) and brought back some Plumeria starts (which looked like cigars).  My mother-in-law and I both planted the starts; mine only lived about a year but hers flourished and grew to be about six feet tall!  Once a year it would bloom and it was pure joy!!!!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Agraria San Franciso....I fell in love with the rich colors of this bath and body ensemble and used them to create a birthday card for a co-worker.  For my card, I used a sentiment from 'Rose' and the following dies, all from ODBD: Trees and Deer Dies, Curvy Slopes Dies, Sunburst Background Dies, Pierced Rectangles, Pierced Circles, and Double Stitched Rectangles.

Live In The Sunshine

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at splitcoast is Tapdancer....I chose this beautiful 'Bare Tree' card to case today.  It reminded me of the Artistic Outpost set, 'The Outpost', which has a giant tree image.  This will be a birthday card for one of my adult nephews. The image was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, then colored with sponges using masking; the sentiment was cut apart, sponged and adhered separately. The panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies and linen thread was added at the bottom as twine was added to Tapdancer's card.

January Calendar - Colorful Snowflakes

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from Balsam Hill....I loved the gorgeous colors of this ornament set and decided to stamp multi-colored snowflakes and sentiments on the January page of the birthday calendar I have been working on for the past month. For this calendar, I've been trying to use permanent ink whenever possible since it may be used for years to come, so I chose the closest Stazon ink colors I had on hand to match the inspiration piece.  The following stamps from ODBD were used: 'Snowflake Sentiments', 'Snowflake Mini' Set, 'Snowy Blessings', and 'Sparkling Snowflakes' (retired).

Birthday Calendar Continued

Hi, everyone!  Today I would like to share two more pages of the birthday calendar I've been working on for the last month.  The August page features the 'Butterfly and Bugs' set, a sentiment from 'Little Things', and the vine from the 'Belles Vignes' set.  This page will be submitted to the Falliday Fest Kellijo 'Coat of Many Colors' challenge.

For the June calendar page, I used the Our Daily Bread designs 'Strawberries' set, along with the 'Strawberries and Pickles' set.  The berries were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, the seeds were colored with a yellow marker then coated with a clear glaze pen to act as a resist.  Using reverse stamping, the strawberries were colored quickly using sponging.  The image at the bottom was colored with markers.  This page will be submitted to the Falliday Fest StampMommaB challenge.....my inspiration from the Christmas Story movie was the color red.
