Coneflower Thanks!

Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge SC599
Hi, everyone!  For this week's Sketch Challenge at Splitcoast, I am using an awesome new stamp set from Our Daily Bread designs, called 'Forever Friends'...I LOVE coneflowers!!!   The image was stamped with Stazon Jet Black, colored with markers, fussy cut, then popped up with foam tape over the cloud background which was sponged using a template cut from the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  The banner was cut with the ODBD Custom Pennants Dies, cut in half, then sponged to match the background.  The pink frame was cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Squares Dies; the ODBD Custom Fence Die was cut out then stamped with the 'Wood Background' stamp, also by ODBD.  Pink Baker's Twine is my only embellishment.

Featured Stamper Times Two!

Hi, everyone!  Today's post covers this week's and last week's Featured Stamper Challenges from Splitcoast.  This week's Featured Stamper is Kendra Sand aka jksand...congrats, Kendra!  I fell in love with this beautiful card and decided to change the design from birthday to sympathy since I need to mail out a card this week, unfortunately. Instead of a straight edge, I used two dies from the ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Borders Dies along with a polka dot design from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2014 pack.  The lily and sentiment stamps are from 'Loving Memories'.

Last week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast was Lisa Somerville, one of my Sistah Sticks (design team sister from Our Daily Bread designs)!  Lisa not only designs for Our Daily Bread designs, North Coast Creations, and Artistic Outpost, but she is "the machine behind the scene" of all three companies!  Thanks, Lisa, for all you do!!!!   After cruising through Lisa's IMMENSE gallery, I chose this beautiful card to case.  Instead of a heart, I cut a birthday cake from the ODBD Custom Cakes and Candle Dies set, stenciled in turquoise, then adhered over some silver cord and a panel which was sprayed with turquoise Glimmer Mist.  The sentiment was cut out with the ODBD Custom Celebrate and Wish Dies. Three clear gemstones were added for some sparkle to go along with the Glimmer Mist, silver cord and silver card base.

Butterfly Sunburst Hello!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Tim Holtz Mania Pinterest Board.....I chose this amazing card for my inspiration today. I couldn't find the stencil I wanted to use for this card, so instead I dry embossed and stenciled the ODBD Custom Sunburst Background Die.  The butterfly and its mat were cut out with the ODBD Custom Fancy Fritillary Dies set.  Ranger Antique Linen distress ink was used for both the butterfly and sunburst, then a little blackberry ink was added to the edges to match the ODBD Custom Hello Die and blackberry mat layer.  Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist was heavily sprayed onto the background and butterfly and a gold metallic card base and gold sequins were used to coordinate with the shimmer.  Unfortunately, the photo did not turn out great, even after multiple shots.  It's very golden and shimmery in real life! I will also be submitting this to the "Less is More" (Use a Stencil) Challenge and the June Fan Club Central Theme at SCS (all about angles).

The Garden of Life

Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 598
Hi, everyone!  This week I have combined Splitcoast's Sketch Challenge #598 with the Color Challenge 588 which is Perfect Plum, Smoky Slate, and Pink Pirouette (I did not choose the dessert option of creating my own background, however).  I have used the following items from Our Daily Bread designs for my card:  Zinnia Set (flower and sentiment), ODBD Custom Zinnia and Leaves Dies, ODBD Custom Pierced Ovals Dies, ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, ODBD Custom Majestic Medallion Dies, and the ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Borders Dies. The zinnia flower was stamped in Stazon Stone Gray, then colored with sponge daubers; I did use a touch of yellow in the center, so the challenge police may come calling! :)

Happy Father's Day

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Vermont Country Store....I chose these herringbone blankets....LOVE blues and browns together!!  Earlier this week, I came across this awesome Father's Day card by gosh2fly and decided to case the layout and tool idea for the three Father's Day cards I needed to make before Sunday.  Today's Inspiration Challenge helped with the missing pieces needed in order to get started on them! I was grateful to have enough herringbone paper in my misc. paper stash to make three cards...whew! First off, I had to dig into my "retired colors file" and get a couple of pieces of SU Brilliant Blue, plus some silver metallic for the saw blade. The designer paper was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, the DAD letters were cut out with the ODBD Custom Alphabet Dies, the saw was cut out with the ODBD Custom Workshop Tools Dies, the father's day sentiment from 'Ride 'Em Cowboy' was heat embossed with silver embossing powder, and the curved border was cut with the ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Borders Dies.

Have a very blessed weekend!

Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 597
Hi, everyone!  This week's Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast can be interpreted so many different ways, for layered cards or clean and simple.  My sample today is a bit in between.  I used a heart instead of a circle plus the number 2 and 3 panels I chose to use the same designer paper separated by turquoise ribbon.  For my card, I have used the following items by Our Daily Bread designs: ODBD Custom Happy Birthday Dies, ODBD Custom Numbers Dies, ODBD Custom Cakes and Candles Dies, ODBD Custom Mini Stitched Hearts Dies, ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Dies, and the ODBD Birthday Bash Paper Collection.  The designer paper had a rainbow of colors, but I focused on the pink and turquoise since my niece love pink.
