ODBD Cathedral Window - Marble
ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders Cathedral Window and Border Dies

For my project today, I have used the Cathedral Window - Marble stamp and the ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders Cathedral Window And Border Dies set.  The window stamp was stamped multiple times in versamark on white cardstock, then embossed with clear embossing powder, then colored with a sponge dauber in pink and accented with a pink marker.  Four window frames total were cut out with the custom die set, two of which were hand trimmed for the side of the Center-step design, the other two make up the "door". (I had to cut two separate frames so that the swinging door had a frame top edge and the top arched piece also had a framed edge at the bottom.)    The sentiment at the bottom, plus the stamped frame are from the "Mini Tags 1' set.  For the finishing touches, Zva Creative pearls and roses were added, along with some Cheery Lynn Designs 'Fanciful Flourish' small and large and satin ribbon.  To learn how to create a center-step design, check out the tutorial HERE on the ODBD Blog.

(For those of you wondering, the photo is my own wedding photo from twenty-one years ago! Oh, to be so young and HOT again! lol!!!!)

On the back of my center-step card is the new "Butterfly Mini" stamp.....one of many new "Stamped By.." stamps.....yay!!!!  The Antique Labels and Border Die Set was perfect to show off my new stamp, but I forgot to leave room at the bottom for my name.....oops!!!!  :)

These cards are incredible, Angie! I am speechless. How did you come up with the ideas? You worked hard and I thank you for that. Thanks for inspiring us.

I would never have thought of splitting the window and expanding the actual window the finished work is beautiful. The ship card is breath taking. There are so many details that can be reinvented for future cards and stamps

Elizabeth said...

The ship card is fabulous. There are so many details that you used that can be used on other ODB stamps and dies.
The church window is unique. I would never have thought to slit to expand. The stair step does so much to this stamp. You're work inspires me.
