These are the items I chose to work with this month:

Our Daily Bread designs Chris The Lord Background Our Daily Bread designs St. Patrick's Day

Our Daily Bread designs Shabby Rose Paper Collection Our Daily Bread designs Custom Beautiful Borders Dies


My first sample for today features the St. Patrick's Day set.  The celtic-style frame was stamped in black, fussy cut inside and outside, then popped up over the prayer which was stamped directly onto the designer paper from the ODBD 'Shabby Rose Paper Collection'.  The border was cut with the ODBD Custom 'Beautiful Borders' Dies set, then layered with matching ribbon and linen thread. The designer paper is so beautiful that I didn't want to cover it up, so I just added paper piercing and some pearls to finish it out.

My next sample features the 'Christ the Lord Background', which combines the beautiful hymn plus some design elements from various stamps and designer papers from ODBD.  The background was stamped in Stazon Jet Black directly onto a pattern from the ODBD 'Shabby Rose Paper Collection', and again on white cardstock (so that I could fussy cut the flowers in the corner and pop them up.)  I kept the design as simple as possible so that the powerful hymn would not be covered up.  The edges were sponged and highlighted with markers before matting.  Paper piercing, pearls, and baker's twine were added for finishing touches.

Roses, Tea, and Music!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose a photo from the Hora-del-te Pinterest board....all about tea...I chose this gorgeous photo for inspiration, plus I saw some other tea cups with a gold rim, so I added some 'Gold Lame' Smooch paint!  I just had to dig out my SB Nested Tea Cups dies to cut out a tea cup from this gorgeous new designer paper from Our Daily Bread designs, called 'Shabby Rose Collection'.  The background was stamped with the 'Christ the Lord' Background onto another pattern from the 'Shabby Rose Collection', then lined in gold Smooch paint to match the lining on the tea cup.  The sentiment is from 'Just A Note' and the border die was cut with the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders dies.

The Love of God Guides Every Good

Hi, everyone!  Today's Ways To Use It Challenge is to use any shades of green for a monochromatic card.  What a perfect opportunity to give you all a sneak peek of the upcoming 'St. Patrick's Day' set by Our Daily Bread designs on March 1st.  I don't celebrate St. Paddies Day per se, but I couldn't resist this set because of the beautiful celtic frame and I love the sentiments which are included in the set as well.  The frame image was stamped in a dark green, cut out by hand, then colored in with a lime green marker.  The shamrock image was stamped in a line down the panel then I paper pierced the edges and used my Scor-buddy to create score lines for a little interest.

Silhouette Inchie Art

Happy Saturday, everyone! It's a snowy day here in Indiana, so I'll be stamping the day away!!! Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is all about 'inchies'.....I chose this beautiful stitched art from the Pinterest board provided. The card design is based on this lovely card from this week's Queen For the Day......big congrats to Kecia aka LittleSeaOtter!!! To match my inspiration piece, I stamped the 'Wildflower Silhouette Background' in green, punched out the flowers I wanted to showcase with a square punch, sponged in banana then kraft on the edges, matted in white and green, then added liquid pearls. The background was stamped in Versamark with the 'Honeycomb Background' and the sentiment is from 'Life is a Gift'.....all of the stamps I used are from Our Daily Bread designs.

Sing and Make Music

Hi again!  I was up early this morning and had a chance to play along with the Color Challenge over at Splitcoast.....I chose three of the five colors provided:  Hello Honey, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Brown Sugar to color and sponge the chickadee image from the Our Daily Bread designs set, 'You Will Find Refuge'.  The card base was stamped with the ODBD 'Wood Background' and the chickadee was cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Chickadee' Die.  This card needed to be flat for mailing, so I added a strip of cotton ribbon with no bow, plus three metallic dots.   

I will also be submitting this to the Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light 'Inspiration' Challenge.....the inspiration photo had little red berries and reminded me that I had not used this little chickadee in a long time.

Joy To The Heart

Hi, everyone!  This week's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use numbers on your CAS card...my numbers are in the scripture verse.  I used the 'Lavender' set by Our Daily Bread designs for my card today.  An oval die was used to cut an aperature from the top panel; the scripture and one lavender image were stamped onto the card base and another lavender image was stamped on the top panel, using the marker to stamp technique. The top panel was popped up with foam tape.

Wildflower Blessings

**For the North Coast Creations February New Release, please scroll down one post or click HERE.

Hi again, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Cathy aka corysnana1....congrats, Cathy!!  I loved the layout of this beautiful card.....instead of using an embossing folder, I used the 'Wildflower Silhouette Background' stamp for the card base and also for the colored panel which was stamped on white then colored with sponge daubers.  The sentiment is from 'Life is a Gift'.  To coordinate with the black stamping, I added black metal brads to the corners.
