Hope Anchors The Soul

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Kelly Santi aka MiamiKel4....congrats, Kelly!!  I chose this awesome CAS card to recreate using the 'Anchor the Soul' set from Our Daily Bread designs.  This card only took 15 minutes to make.....yay!!!  The white panels were cut with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Circles Dies and ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Instead of sequins, I used two navy pearls in the corners.

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.

Ray of Sunshine!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from My Sweet Petunia.....I chose this super cute CAS card.  It was so fun to use the 'Hello Sunshine' set (from Our Daily Bread designs) again...it has been quite a while.  The white panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Squares Dies and the clouds are from the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.

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.

God's Neverending Love

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Hideko Lagan aka PapercraftBoutique....congrats, Hideko!  What an amazing gallery!  I fell in love with this gorgeous card!  Unfortunately, I do not have any watercolor paper, but I did my best to recreate her design using the 'Dahlia' stamp and sentiment from the 'Fragrance' set, both by Our Daily Bread designs.  The dahlia was white embossed on a white panel cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, sponged with two shades of pink, then adhered to the white card base.  Instead of a sequin, I added three tiny pink pearls.

My Light and Salvation

Hi, everyone! This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is a former design team sister of mine from Our Daily Bread designs, super talented DJ Rants.....congrats, DJ!!!!  I chose this awesome masculine card to case....I loved the offset panels and the large fish design element in the corner.  To conserve on paper, I don't make square cards often these days, so I changed her design to an A2.  To keep my card flat for mailing, I decided to leave off the ribbon.  This is a birthday card for one of my nephews.  The lighthouse image from 'Light of the World' was inked in navy, 'stamped off', then stamped onto a white panel cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The scripture verse was stamped in red over the image after the panel was sponged with kraft ink. The anchor from the 'You Anchor Me' Stamp/Die Duos set was die cut from kraft and stenciled in red.  The nautical designer paper is from the ODBD Nautical Paper Collection.

Tea Bag Art Inspiration

Happy Saturday!!!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Tea Bag Art board on Pinterest.  I thought that this tea bag with the white lilies was so cool and I loved the cocoa colored background.  I dug into my stash of Close to Cocoa cardstock (which has been retired for quite a few years) for my card base. The small sentiments from 'To My Favorite', from Our Daily Bread designs, were stamped directly to the card base. The 'Stargazer Lily' image from the 'Beauty' set (also from ODBD) was stamped with Versamark on the card and then stamped onto the white tag with Stazon Jet Black, highlighted with markers, then coated with a clear glaze pen (to act as a resist).  Cocoa, rust, and light tan inks were sponged around the image and on the edges of the tag, then water was spritzed over it to mottle the inks a bit.  Since I didn't have any fancy colored staples, I used Stazon Timber Brown ink to stain a regular staple stack before placing them back inside the stapler. I did not have white string to mimic the tea bag string, so I used linen thread instead. I will also be submitting this card to the Friday FreeAll Floral Challenge and the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge, which is 'Anything Goes with ODBD Stamps'.

ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies ODBD Custom Steampunk Gears Dies

Artistic Outpost Vagabond Treasures Paper Collection

First up is a birthday card for my Mom, who loves blended red and yellow tulips.  I knew I wanted to make a '29 again' card since it wouldn't be polite to advertise the real number! :)  The numbers from the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies were cut from white and stenciled with yellow to match the background panel which was cut with the ODBD Custom Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies, matted with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The image from 'Tulips' was stamped in black, cut out with the ODBD Custom Tulip Die, colored with markers, then popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment panel was cut with the smallest die from the ODBD Custom Circle Scalloped Rectangles, but was 're-sized' to make it shorter so that the 'again' sentiment from 'Celebration' would fit perfectly. (To resize this die, it was only cut half way the first round, then flipped around and re-positioned so that the scalloped matched, then cut half way on the other end.)

My next card was created for my hubby for our 25th anniversary coming up (good thing he doesn't read my blog!!)  I chose the new Artistic Outpost Vagabond Treasures Paper Collection for both the background and for the numbers, since it was "manly"!  The numbers were cut out of the designer paper with the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies, then matted with kraft cardstock.  To create the perfect mats for the numbers, I traced the outlines of the dies onto the cardstock and cut out with scissors.  Since there are no dramatic curves, this was very simple to do.  The sentiments from 'Celebration' were stamped onto panels cut from the ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies.  The gears were cut out of rust and kraft with the ODBD Custom Steampunk Gears Dies for embellishments and both rectangle panels were cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  I love how all of the piercing coordinates!
