A Friend Loves At All Times

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Shirley N aka snn....congrats, Shirley!  I chose this awesome CAS card from Shirley's gallery to recreate.  I used the 'To My Friend' set and the 'Birthday Brights' Paper Collection, both by Our Daily Bread designs.  The dandelion images were first inked in yellow and mustard using the 'rock and roll' technique, then with light and dark gray. A small strip of designer paper was adhered to the card base, then the top panel was popped up with foam tape.

Anchor of My Soul

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from Autumn's Sew Paper Paint Blog.....wow, I'm an instant Fan Girl....her work is amazing!!!!! I was super inspired by her vintage creations and awesome techniques and will go back to do some studying, but for today's challenge, I chose this awesome card for my inspiration.   I chose to use the 'You Anchor Me' Stamp/Die Duos set from Our Daily Bread designs to match the same layout features.  Since I need two masculine birthday cards, I decided to make two of the same card but different colors. Instead of watercoloring the background, I used sponges to blend the colors, then spritzed with water and flicked larger droplets with a paintbrush.  Once dry, the scripture was stamped and the panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, then matted with black.

Mother's Day Blessings

Hi, everyone!  This week's Friday Free4All Challenge over at Splitcoast is to make a normal card for you, but with less layers....a more simple version.  I went very CAS with my Mother's Day cards this year, but I really like how they turned out.  The kraft card base was stamped in Versamark with the Pussy-Willow Background; the buds were painted with Pearl Glimmer Mist.  I cut three strips of white cardstock, sponged kraft and aqua ink over them, then created the borders by cutting them with the ODBD Custom Flower Lattice Die (since the die cuts' edges are a bit delicate, I sponged the colors before cutting so I wouldn't bend the edges.) The die was adhered to aqua cardstock then the edges were trimmed with paper snips. The sentiment is from 'Mother's Day'.  (All stamps and die are from Our Daily Bread designs.) Three brown pearls were added for a simple embellishment.

ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies ODBD Custom Deco Border Dies

ODBD Custom Pierced Squares Dies ODBD Custom Squares Dies

Artistic Outpost Vagabond Treasures Paper Collection ODBD Americana Quilt Paper Collection

For my first card, I used the fun new 'School Bus Driver' set, but transformed the 'School Bus' into a 'Church Bus' by stamping individual letters with the 'Pennant Swag Alphabet' set.  After the letters were stamped, the rectangle was cut out then the edges were lined with a black marker.  The bus was stamped on red cardstock and again on white so that the various pieces could be cut out and paper-pieced together.  The stop sign was white embossed on white, then colored with a red marker, cut out and adhered. Red and yellow gemstones were added for the lights at the top.  The fun designer paper is from the ODBD Americana Quilt Paper Collection; the panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Squares Dies and ODBD Custom Squares Dies.

I fell in love with this designer paper from the Artistic Outpost 'Vagabond Treasures' Paper Collection, so I based my color scheme around it.  The cross and sentiment from 'Sunday School Teacher' were heat embossed with espresso powder onto ivory cardstock.  The cross was cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Crosses' Dies; the sentiment panel was cut from the ODBD Custom 'Ornate Ovals Dies'; both were popped up with foam tape. Dark brown embroidery thread was braided for both the card and bookmark.  The ODBD Custom Deco Border Die was cut from ivory and sponged with rust and brown.

For the bookmark, the same piece of designer paper was used with the ODBD Custom Bookmarks Dies; the mat was trimmed by hand.  As with the card, the scripture and cross were heat embossed. Instead of using a brad for the center of this cross, I used a metallic cut out from a previous project so that the bookmark would be flat inside the Bible or whichever book the recipient chooses to read.

Rockin' Out With Elvis!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Kandie aka Kemernow....congrats, Kandie!!!  I fell in love with this beautiful silhouette card, with the turquoise background and simple layout.  I followed the same general design and colors, but went very CAS with my card.  I am an Elvis nut and love when I have the opportunity to use these fun stamps (from Crackerbox Palace) which I picked up at a stamp show a couple of years ago.  Instead of coloring the full background, I used a star stencil around the edges of the image which was inked in Stazon Jet Black and stamped three times in a row for the shadow effect. This is a birthday card for one of my nephews who I was tickled to hear also loves Elvis!!!!  I will also be submitting this card to the 'Less Is More' shadow challenge.

Grow In God's Love

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to create a card out of inspiration from our sentiment stamps, plus bonus points for using the 'Sentiment Backdrop' Technique.  This was a perfect opportunity to use a brand new set from Our Daily Bread designs, called 'Sunday School Teacher'.  The cross image and sentiment were stamped on Confetti Cream cardstock in black; a mask for the cross was cut out with the ODBD Custom Crosses Dies set then temporarily adhered over the stamped cross; the sentiment was stamped over the mask in Marina Mist (to match the flecks in the cardstock). Once the mask was removed, the scratch paper from which the mask was cut was placed over the image so that I could sponge the matching ink inside the cutout. One tiny blue gem was added to the center of the cross. This card will be given to one of the elders in my study group. Because of the unique background technique, I will also be submitting this card for the Fan Club monthly theme of  'Background Check'.

Let Faith Be The Bridge

Hi, everyone!  This week's Ways To Use It Challenge over at Splitcoast is 'Two For Tea'...use anything tea related or use the letter 'T'....I chose to use the letter, which is part of the ODBD Custom 'Faith Border' Die.  The stamp set used is 'Safe Travels' and the panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, ODBD Custom Double Stitched Circles Dies, and ODBD Custom Circles Dies. This was a very quick card since there was no coloring involved.

Blessings of the Lord

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Scor-pal Scoring Ideas Pinterest Board......I fell in love with this awesome card and tried my own version with the 'On Eagles's Wings' set by Our Daily Bread designs.  The eagle was stamped on a white panel which was cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, colored with sponges and ink (using masking) and a marker (beak and talons), then the entire eagle was masked so that the aqua ink could be sponged around it.  The scripture verse from 'Doily Blessings' was stamped, then the score lines were added around the image and scripture. Two 'faux brads' were added as an accent.

Hot Pink Dandelions

Hi, everyone!  My card today was so quick and so fun to make!  This is my newest fave set from Our Daily Bread designs, called 'To My Friend'......I LOVE versatile sets like this.....I have soooooo many ideas for this set that you all will probably get sick of seeing them!! :)  The framing was cut with the ODBD Custom Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies and the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  Just simple stamping with minimal layers and the only embellishment is a satin bow tied with my Bow Easy.

Happy Camper

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Sue Drees aka NEEDMORESPACE.....congrats, Sue!  I really loved this beautiful cabin scene which helped me with a theme in order to create this birthday card for my father-in-law, who loves camping.  I have used the North Coast Creations set, 'Happy Camper', along with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. The background scene was sponged over scratch paper, stamped with the trees, and the clouds were sponged over a template cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  The camper was stamped on white, fussy cut, colored with grays, aqua, and yellow, then popped up with foam tape.  An extra tree was stamped so that I could create a stump for the trailer tongue to sit on.

Happy 4th Birthday

Floral Arrangement Pinterest Board
Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from this amazing Floral Arrangements Pinterest Board.  I fell in love with the color combination of these beautiful flowers.  For my card, I chose a pattern from the ODBD Whimsical Wildflowers Paper Collection and a piece of Barely Banana cardstock (from my treasured retired stash).  The rectangle panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies; the number 4 was cut out with the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies; the butterflies from 'Butterfly and Bugs' were stamped then cut out with the ODBD Custom Butterfly and Bugs Dies; the sentiments are from the 'Celebration' set.  Since I do not own blending markers, I used a clear glaze pen on the outlines of the butterflies to act as a resist, then sponged the yellow and purple. I love to color with sponges for a smooth, subtle look.  This is a birthday card for my great-niece who I swear was just a baby yesterday!!! :)

Take Me Home Country Roads

Hi, everyone!  This week's Friday Free4All Challenge theme over at Splitcoast is 'The Wheels Go Round and Round'.  My 'wheels' are on this vintage truck from the Artistic Outpost set, 'Home'.  I picked up this awesome stamp set at the Our Daily Bread designs booth at the Indy stamp show last month.  'Vintage' is not my normal style, but there were a couple of AO sets on my wish list for a while.  I started out by cutting the ivory panel with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies set before stamping.  The sentiment is part of the truck stamp, so I used masking to stamp the truck alone and to stamp the sentiment on a separate piece in order to cut the words apart.  Using masking on the truck, the trees were stamped in the background.  The card base was swiped with rust and brown ink pads to create the 'faux wood' look.  Antique copper brads were used as accents.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Get ready for extra posts from me this weekend so that I may do some catching up on cards I've created recently!

To My Friend

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Donna aka pink_lady....congrats, Donna!!!  I was drawn to this gorgeous card because the white embossing looks so cool on the kraft cardstock!  For my card, a kraft panel was cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Squares Dies, the images and sentiment from the ODBD set, 'To My Friend', were embossed in white, the edges were sponged, then the panel was matted with white.  Three white sequins and linen thread were added for embellishments.

God Is Good All The Time!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper is Anita Kerjiwal aka anitak160.....congrats, Anita!!!  Anita was a guest designer for ODBD last year and it was so great to get to know her!!  I chose this awesome CAS card to recreate today for a co-worker's birthday.  Instead of adding an extra embossed panel, I chose to mask, sponge, and stamp directly onto the card base. The clock and sentiment are from 'God's Timing' and the dies used are from the ODBD Custom Matting Circles Dies.

Fluevog Shoes
Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from the Fluevog Shoes site.....I chose these awesome shoes to help with a birthday card for my nephew.  The gray/blue combination was so striking!  For my card, I used two different grays but chose a more subtle shade of blue.  The knight from 'Armor of God' was stamped, cut out with the ODBD Custom Suit of Armor Dies, colored with sponges and markers, then popped up with foam tape over panels cut with the ODBD Custom Lavish Layers Dies and ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  The sentiments were stamped with the 'Pennant Flag Verses' set, then cut out with the ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies, matted with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.

ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies

For my first card, the ODBD Custom Lattice Background Die was cut from baby blue cardstock, then the center was cut out and framed in black with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. The lattice panel was popped up with foam tape over a white panel which was stamped with black and light blue with the 'To My Friend' stamp set (LOVE this set!!!)  This was such a simple card to make....even the foam tape didn't take long...yay!!

My second card was just as quick!  The ODBD Custom Lattice Background Die was cut from white, then the opening was cut out with scissors (you could also use a craft knife).  The panel was popped up with foam tape over a cantaloupe colored card base which was stamped with the 'To My Friend' set in espresso brown ink.  Some baker's twine and pearls were added for embellishments. (Note: the edges of the card were protected by scratch paper while stamping the brown flowers.)
