Below are the products featured in my samples, both new and previously released:

ODBD Custom Pinecones Dies ODBD Lovely Leaves Dies

ODBD Sing For Joy ODBD Home Sweet Home

ODBD Custom Stitched Ovals ODBD Custom Ovals Dies

ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies ODBD Custom Gilded Gate Dies

ODBD Custom Welcoming Window Dies ODBD Custom Windows Dies

ODBD Custom Window Shutter and Awning Dies ODBD Custom Flower Box Fillers Dies

ODBD Chalkboard Vine Background ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013

For my first sample, I chose a pattern from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013, along with the 'Sing for Joy' set since they both coordinated with the new ODBD Custom Pinecones Dies and ODBD Custom Lovely Leaves Dies (pine branch).  The cardinal was popped up onto a matted panel cut from the ODBD Custom Stitched Ovals Dies and ODBD Custom Ovals Dies.  The designer paper was trimmed on each side with the ODBD Beautiful Borders Dies. (P.S.  If you decide to add this beautiful cardinal to your wish list, don't forget to add the ODBD Custom Cardinal Die as well.....silly me, I forgot that I had that die and spent fifteen minutes fussy cutting the image! lol!!)

ODBD Sing For Joy, ODBD Custom Pinecones Dies, ODBD Custom Lovely Leaves Dies, ODBD Custom Stitched Ovals Dies, ODBD Custom Ovals Dies, ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013, Card Designer Angie Crockett

My 2nd card is a birthday card custom made for my mother-in-law.  She shared an old tattered photo of her childhood home (shown below the card) and asked if I could design her birthday card around that.  She and her siblings would climb up on the porch awning and eat cherries from the cherry tree, so I added some branches and red rhinestones to mimic the tree.  The tree branches were cut from the ODBD Custom Lovely Leaves Dies; the 'branch' was colored with a brown marker.  I used the ODBD Custom Welcoming Windows Dies, ODBD Custom Window Shutter and Awning Dies, ODBD Custom Flower Box Fillers Dies, and the ODBD Custom Windows Dies set (for the inside curtains, which were stamped with the Chalkboard Vine Background stamp).  To match the porch railing in the photo, I cut two pieces of fencing from the ODBD Custom Gilded Gate Dies, then trimmed off the top curved portion.  The sentiment is from 'Home Sweet Home.'

ODBD Custom Lovely Leaves Dies, ODBD Custom Welcoming Window Dies, ODBD Custom Windows Dies, ODBD Custom Window Shutter and Awning Dies, ODBD Custom Flower Box Fillers Dies, ODBD Custom Gilded Gate Dies, ODBD Home Sweet Home, ODBD Chalkboard Vine Background, Card Designer Angie Crockett

Fabulous finish to an amazing hop! I love these cards and all the new release.

Bunny said...

Lovely cards. I like the cardinal with the pine cones and lovely leaves die. The red and white twine you added was nice. It did crack me up that you forgot that you had the die for the cardinal.

The 2nd card is special as you made it for a family member who has a nice memory of her childhood. Loved looking at the old picture. I still love a porch.

Berina RGA said...

Beautiful cards!! That cardinal is one of my favorite stamps! I used it in a recent card - you an see it here.

That cardinal card is the best! So bold and vibrant just like the bird! This is so realistic I can almost hear it make it's chirpy noise! The colors you paired with it go so well. My parents would have loved this card! The window card was fun with the tree outside also. Love all the fun details. One of the best window cards I have seen! Thanks for sharing!

Your card designs are both gorgeous, Angie, as well as your creativity! Love your cardinal card…and my husband would, too, as cardinals are his favorite bird. Your recreation of your MIL's home is amazing…from the cherry tree branches to the stamped curtains, to the porch railing, every detail finely reproduced…she will surely cherish this card and your thoughtfulness in creating it! Hugs, my sweet friend!
