Sewing Mends the Soul

Hi, everyone!!  Today's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is the incredibly talented Kathy Roney aka rosekathleenr....congrats, Kathy!!!  I chose this gorgeous card from her gallery to case, using the image from the  'Hand Knit' set (plus ODBD Custom Knitting Basket and Yarn Dies), sentiment from 'Sewing', embossed the background with the 'ODBD Custom Quatrefoil Pattern Die' and framed the basket with the 'ODBD Custom Doily Dies' from Our Daily Bread designs.

Emboss Resist Doily Blessings

Happy Saturday!!!!!  Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find a photo from Audrie's Inspiration Pinterest board......I loved the colors of this photo and incorporated them in my card.  The doily and sentiment I used are from 'Doily Blessings' from Our Daily Bread designs (available Sept 1st).  The doily was clear embossed onto white cardstock, then using the embossing resist technique, I sponged green, yellow, peach, and pink inks onto the white cardstock.  After matting the panel, the edges were paper pierced with a template and the piercing around the doily stamp was freehand.  The paper button in the center was cut with the ODBD Custom Doily Dies set (also available Sept 1st).  Pearls and baker's twine were added for embellishments.  I will also be submitting this to the Friday Free4All Challenge, which was to use one little button on your project.

Doily Blessings / ODBD Sneak Peek!

Hi, everyone!!  Today is the first day for sneak peeks of the September 1st new releases from Our Daily Bread designs.....woo hoo!!!!  My shaped card and popped up doily were both cut out with the upcoming ODBD Custom Doily Die Set.  The scripture is from 'Doily Blessings', the designer paper is from the ODBD 'Blushing Rose Collection', and the ivory seam binding bow was tied with a Bow Easy.  The general card design was based on this shaped card by Jenn Cochran, who is this week's Queen for the Day, along with our new QFTD hostess......congrats on both accounts!!!

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.
