Woodland Nameframe and Card

Vikings Metal Print from Society6
Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Society6 store.  I was looking for some help to make a nameframe and card with a woodland theme and this hilarious Vikings Metal Print was just the ticket! I was planning to use realistic animal stamps, but then went with 'Under the Stars' from Stampin Up.  The bear and raccoons were colored with sponges using masking then popped up with foam tape. The trees were stamped with an un-named Inkadinkado stamp.  The following items from Our Daily Bread designs were also used: ODBD Custom Grass Hill Die, ODBD Custom Alphabet Dies, ODBD Custom Pennants Dies (retired), and ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies (template for sponging the clouds).  Generally I do not like to mix stamp companies, but with personalized gifts, I have to use what I have on hand.

Here is a closeup of the frame scene:

This is the matching card.  I used all of the same items as the frame, but added a sentiment from the 'Noah's Ark' set by Our Daily Bread designs and the panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.

Let's Roll!

Hi, everyone!  Today I would like to share a birthday card for one of my nephews...his fave toy is a red truck so I chose the 'Special Boy' set from Our Daily Bread designs.  For the embossed background, I ran a cardstock panel through my Xyron, adhered a piece of aluminum foil to it, used a diamond-plate embossing folder on it, then cut it out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies set. The image panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Squares Dies.  The image was colored with SU markers and the sky was sponged over a template cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  Silver brads and black gingham ribbon were used for finishing touches. I will be submitting this to the Falliday Fest Forest Ranger 'recycling' challenge and for the October Fan Club theme since I used my Xyron machine.

Pink Birthday Chicken

Hi, everyone!  This week's Ways To Use It Challenge over at Splitcoast is to feature a pink animal on your card.  Since I needed a birthday card for one of my nieces, I chose the Stampin Up set, 'Hey Chick!' and colored her tail and top feathers with pink.  The white panel was dry embossed with a bubble folder then cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, matted with the ODBD Custom Rectangles Dies.  The image panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Stitched Ovals Dies and matted with the ODBD Custom Ovals Dies.  I finished it off with some pink sequins and pink baker's twine which I just bought at JoAnn's yesterday...talk about perfect timing!!  I will also be submitting this to the Falliday Fest LMcAree 'Birds of a Feather' Challenge.

Butterfly Blessings

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Tracie Clary aka taclary....congrats, Tracie!!  I chose this amazing card to case today due to the striking colors and clean layout. I used the same layout and color scheme, but instead of a stamp for the background, I used the ODBD Custom Flower Lattice Die.  The middle sized butterfly from the 'Trois Jolies Papillons' set was stamped in black, colored in aqua and yellow, then cut out with the ODBD Custom Tres Papillons' Dies and popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment is from the 'Sunday School Teacher' set and the white panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies

October Blessings Calendar Page

Hi, everyone!  Here is the next finished page of the birthday calendar I am working on.  The new ODBD Custom Stitched Leaves Dies were perfect to complete this page!  The leaves were cut out with various polka dot patterns from the ODBD Fall Favorites Paper Collection and the ODBD Christmas Coordinating 2015 Paper Collection.  Instead of stamping a sentiment, I used the ODBD Custom Blessings Border Die since it was the perfect size for the bottom of the calendar page! The tiny little accent leaves were cut from the same paper collections using the ODBD Custom Lovely Leaves Dies.

Upsy Daisy Thank You

Hi, everyone! This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Rochelle aka beechwood....congrats, Rochelle!!  Her gallery is full of amazing fancy folds, punch art, and super creative projects!  I have not used the Stampin Up 'Upsy Daisy' set in many years, so I chose this gorgeous card as inspiration today. Though my card is CAS, I used the same colors to sponge the background. The sentiment was masked so that only half of the sentiment stamped (the other half says 'for your friendship'). The panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies and matted with olive.  This will be mailed to my in-laws since they bought us a new pc when they heard that my 'dinosaur' was crashing. :)

Wild Rose Calendar Page

Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Victoria Trading Company....I chose this gorgeous lawn chair to help decorate the May page of a birthday calendar I am working on for a gift.  The wild roses from 'Fragrance' were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, then colored with sponges and markers.  Using masking, Ranger Antique Linen ink was sponged around the flowers as in the lawn chair. The sponging in the photo is not flattering but it looks okay in the real.

My last card is on the Clean and Simple side.  I started by cutting a shaped card with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles Dies.  The sunflower pattern paper from the ODBD Follow the Son Paper Collection was cut with the same die as the card base, but was 're-sized' to adjust the width.  The image from 'Be A Sunflower' was stamped, cut out with the ODBD Custom Sunflower Die, and popped up with foam tape.  An extra flower was stamped in order to cut out the center section and pop up for dimension.

You Are My Sunshine

Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from Beau-Coup....I chose this Fall Leaf Candy Dish photo. I chose a pattern from the ODBD 'Follow The Son' Paper Collection to match the (table top?) in the inspiration photo, along with the 'Be a Sunflower' set which fit perfect with the colors of the dishes.  The image was cut out with the ODBD Custom Sunflower Die.  The card base and designer paper were both cut out with the ODBD Custom Rounded Rectangles Dies (the designer paper was cut using the Die Re-sizing Technique to alter the width.) Due to the wrinkles in the leaves, I will also submit this to the 'Wrinkle In Time' Fan Club Central Theme this month. (Please note: the stamps, dies, and paper for this card will be available October 1st at Our Daily Bread designs.)

This Land Was Made For You and Me!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Beverly aka ruby-heartedmom...congrats, Beverly!!  Wow, what an awesome gallery!!  I chose this cool card to recreate....instead of using color blocking, I used four star panels cut out with the ODBD Custom USA Flag Die.  The star frame was cut out using two dies from the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Stars Dies and the inset star was cut with the ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars Dies set.  The tiny silver stars and red strip borders were leftovers from another card made with the flag die.  The sentiment is from the 'Let Freedom Ring' set.  The red strips were mitered at the corners to create the frame.

Spirit of the Lord - Bookmark

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Kirkland's.... I loved the message of God and Country in this framed piece and it reminded me of the scripture in the 'Justice for All' set by ODBD.  I cut out each line of the scripture separately, sponged the edges, then adhered them to a bookmark cut with the ODBD Custom Bookmarks Dies from a flag pattern from the ODBD Stars and Stripes Paper Collection.

North Coast Creations September New Releases!

Hi, everyone!  I am super excited to be a guest designer again this month for North Coast Creations!   Check out all of the adorable new stamps and dies HERE.  My designer sisters created the most amazing, creative projects.....check them out here:

* Sandee * Julie * Dawn * Lisa * Chris * Angie (me!) * Maggie *

Here are the items used in my two samples for today:

NCC Llama Tell You NCC Sweet Shoppe Paper Collection

ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies

ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies

For my first card, a white panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, then the image from the new 'Llama Tell You' set was stamped three times.  The clouds were sponged over a template cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  For a colorful mat, a pattern from the NCC Sweet Shoppe Paper Collection was cut with the same rectangle set. After coloring each llama, a clear glaze pen was used to highlight their eyes.

For my second card, the image from 'Llama Tell You' was stamped on white, colored, then fussy cut. (An extra nose was stamped and colored to pop up for dimension.)  I used the 'Faux Wood' technique on a dark red card by swiping a brown ink pad from top to bottom to create the wood grain pattern.  The frame was cut using the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles. A clear glaze pen was added to the eyes to give them a realistic look.

Coffee Is Always A Good Idea!

Happy Saturday, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Audrie's 'My New House Ideas' Pinterest board.  When I saw this awesome coffee station, I was inspired by several aspects of it: coffee (need I say more?!), the gorgeous marble countertop, and the golden leaf handles for the canisters which match the gold tray! The countertop made me want to try the tissue paper technique which I first tried on this card. The coffee pot reminded me of my favorite stamp from the 'I Love Coffee' set by Our Daily Bread designs.....this is my motto!! :) The leaves from 'Autumn Blessings' were gold embossed on gold cardstock, then cut out with the ODBD Custom Fall Leaves and Acorn Dies.  To cut out the sentiment panels, I used the ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies and ODBD Custom Ovals Dies.  Once the tissue paper was adhered to a piece of white cardstock which was ran through a Xyron machine, the panel was cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  I will also be submitting this to the September Fan Club challenge since the tissue paper has wrinkles in it.  Plus, the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is going on....will submit there as well!

Patriotic Butterflies

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Rachel aka stampinrachel...congrats, Rachel!!  I chose this super fun card to recreate because of the awesome layout! Instead of fruit, my three objects are butterflies. The three butterflies were cut out with the ODBD Custom Bitty Butterflies Dies, the rectangle panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, the sentiment from 'Let Freedom Ring' was stamped on white then cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies (the die was resized to fit the sentiment perfectly). The patriotic butterfly ribbon is some I found in the $1 bin at Michael's many years ago... I finally have the perfect chance to use it!

CAS Cowboy Silhouette

Hi, everyone!  This week's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to create a CAS card with a Western theme.  I chose the 'Howdy' set from Our Daily Bread designs to create a birthday card for my uncle.  I cut a piece of cratch paper A2 size, then die cut a rectangle out of it to create a mask.  The silhouette was stamped in Stazon Jet black, then eggplant, navy, and tangerine were sponged to create the background.  Once the mask was removed, some doodling was added for a frame.
