Blackberry Anniversary

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper is Beverly Sue Wilson...congrats, Beverly!!!  I chose this gorgeous anniversary card to recreate using the following items from Our Daily Bread designs: ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, ODBD Custom Umbrellas Dies (tiny hearts), the 'Chalkboard Fan Background' stamp, and the 'Hugs and Kisses' stamp set. I love how this design was so quick and easy....I will use this layout again for sure!

For My Niece

Happy Saturday, everyone!  My card today combines two challenges from this week over at Splitcoast, the Featured Stamper and Inspiration Challenges. The Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from one of the photos on the Details, Ribbons, and Bows Pinterest board.....I loved the pink ribbon and soft rose design in this photo.  The layout for my card was cased from this beautiful card created by Joyce Ann aka AnniePanda who is this week's Featured Stamper.....congrats, Joyce Ann!  The white panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, then the bottom portion was cut at an angle with the ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Borders Dies. The banner strip was cut out of a rose design from the ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection then a heart cut out with the ODBD Custom Heavenly Hearts Dies and ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies was adhered over the strip.  The sentiment is from the 'To My Favorite' stamp set.  I used pink satin ribbon to coordinate with the inspiration photo. Pink pearls were added instead of sequins as in Joyce Ann's card.

Heavenly Hearts Treat Basket

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose a baby item from the Spearmintlove site....I fell in love with this pink teether!  I have used the ODBD Custom Heavenly Hearts Dies to create a treat basket.  These dies are meant to cut out inset patterns in the sides of the new ODBD Custom Glorious Gable Boxes but I used them separately for this fun project.  I cut out four panels for the sides, a square for the bottom, and the handle was created by cutting three of the rectangle patterns on a strip, then trimmed down to size.  (Please click here to see the die inserts used and modified for this project.)  The sides were held together with temporary tape while the inside corners and bottom were reinforced with tiny strips of cardstock.  (I may have to do a tutorial later!) The sentiment from 'Let Love Grow' was stamped onto a panel cut with the ODBD Custom Mini Labels Dies.  The little heart is from the ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies.  I will also submit this to the Friday Free4All Challenge, the theme of which was 'In The Pink'.

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Anita Bakker aka snietje....congrats, Anita!!  I chose Anita's gorgeous 'Romantic' card to case today.....loved the layout and pretty floral design.  Instead of a square, I changed it to an A2 for easier mailing.  The following items from Our Daily Bread designs were used to create my card:  ODBD Custom Tulip Heart Die, ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies, ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, ODBD You Bless Me So Stamp/Die Duo, ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, and the ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection.  This card is for a co-worker whose birthday is on Valentine's Day.

Violet Hearts Inspiration

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Pandora jewelry site.....I was drawn to this white enamel charm with the purple hearts.  I've been wanting to try a negative die cut card with the new ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies and this is a perfect opportunity!  The polka dot paper from the ODBD Plum Pizazz Paper Collection was cut with the ODBD Custom Rectangles Dies, the white panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, various sized hearts were used for the cut outs, a sentiment from 'Hugs and Kisses' was stamped, then the white panel was popped up on foam tape over the purple panel.  Instead of using ribbon, some tiny purple hearts cut with the ODBD Custom Umbrellas Dies set were added in the corners.

Grungy Heart

Hi, everyone!  Today's Friday Free4All Challenge over at Splitcoast is to make a Valentine card.  I combined the new ODBD Custom Tulip Heart Die and ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies with the ODBD Custom Angel Wings Dies and ODBD Custom Steampunk Gears Dies to create a grungy valentine.  (Yep, this is about as grungy as I can go without freaking out! lol! )  The copper die cuts were all sponged with Stazon Timber Brown (since regular ink would wipe off).  The copper embossed sentiment is from 'Hugs and Kisses'; the designer paper background, from the Heart and Soul Paper Collection was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies and was matted with the ODBD Custom Lavish Layers Dies.  The tiny 'faux brads' in the corner were cut outs from the gear dies.

ODBD Custom Glorious Gable Box Dies ODBD Custom Heavenly Hearts Dies

ODBD Custom Tulip Heart Die ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies

ODBD Let Love Grow ODBD To My Favorite

ODBD Custom Mini Labels Dies ODBD Custom Bitty Blossoms Dies

ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Dies

ODBD Custom Glorious Gable Box Dies, ODBD Custom Heavenly Hearts Dies, ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies, ODBD Custom Tulip Heart Die, ODBD Custom Mini Labels Dies, ODBD To My Favorite, ODBD Let Love Grow, ODBD Custom Bitty Blossoms Dies, ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Dies, Projects Designed by Angie Crockett

Instead of creating a treat box, I used the new ODBD Custom Glorious Gable Box Dies to make a paper lantern, which why I chose gray cardstock.  After cutting out the two halves of the box, the ODBD Custom Heavenly Hearts Dies were used to cut out the pretty flourishes, then the ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies were used to cut out the heart openings and small white heart.  Before assembling the box, I used vellum to line all of the die cut panels except for the front, so that the tea light would be visible.


The white heart on the front was stenciled in gray and the sentiment from 'To My Favorite' was stamped in black.  The accent flower was cut with the ODBD Custom Bitty Blossoms Dies and ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Dies.


The matching card was cut out with the ODBD Custom Tulip Heart Die.  The shaped card was cut out with white; a gray heart was cut out with the ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies for the back of the card and the flourished top panel was cut with the ODBD Custom Tulip Heart Die.  When gluing the top heart to the white card, I intentionally offset them so that some of the white would show through.  The sentiment panel was cut with the ODBD Custom Mini Labels Dies and was stamped with a sentiment from 'Let Love Grow'.


Thanks for hanging out with me and my Sistah Sticks today!

Blessings,
