ODBD Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge

Wow, it's Thursday again already!!! This week Betty has a fun challenge planned for the Our Daily Bread designs' Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge. The assignment: use your stamps by Our Daily Bread designs.....the challenge: use embossing powder on your card, layout, or altered item. Embossing powders have come a long way...there are many different cool styles to choose from, though I stayed on the conservative side of the fence for this one by clear embossing over chalk ink. I'm looking forward to seeing the varieties of embossing powders used for this challenge!

Check out these gorgeous challenge samples from the girls:

Aren't they awesome?! We can't wait to see what you come up with!! If you'd like to play along, and be entered for a chance to win $ towards ODBD stamps, break out your ODBD stamps and embossing powder of your choosing.....then upload your project with the linky tool on the ODBD blog post HERE. Have fun and good luck!!

Card Deets: I stamped the scripture from "Sing To The Lord", onto a Flower Soft Card Topper, with SEI chalk ink and then embossed with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder, added paper piercing, sponged the edges, then added "Sweet Pea" Flower Soft. The background is SEI textured paper, which was embossed with the Damask Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, then sanded with a sanding block to show the white core of the paper. Paper piercing, sponging, May Arts crocheted ribbon, Zva Creative Pearls, a Prima Gallery Rose, and lots of "Dazzling Diamonds" Glimmer Mist were used to finish the card.

Along with the Stamping In Time Challenge, I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Christian Paper Crafts Wednesday Case Artist: I have combined two weeks of this challenge together....this week's WCA73 challenge is to either case a pink creation from the CPC gallery OR case anyone from the gallery and make your creation pink. Last week's WCA72 challenge was to case (copy and share everything) a stamper from another online gallery or blog, then invite them to become a member at Christian Paper Crafts......I chose to case this gorgeous card by Mary Rager, known as #1volunteer at Splitcoast.

C.R.A.F.T. challenge: colors of pink, green, blue, cream, and white;
Color Create: pink, green, cream;
ABC Challenge: F = Flowers;
Crafty Creations: Show a number anywhere on your project;
Fab 'n Funky: Yummy, yummy, yummy ( I don't know about you, but I use the word "yummy" when it comes to cards with pearls, lace, Glimmer Mist, and lots of beautiful, I'm describing my card as "yummy"!);
Gingersnap Creations: Versamark;
Little Red Wagon: Something old (stamp set and Flower Soft) and something new (SEI paper);
Sisterhood of Crafters: Bling;
Artful Inkables: Embossing, flowers, and lace;

Oh, Angie~

This is FABULOUS!!!! I love this piece! I just love lilacs. Even is my Mother's FAVORITE flower of all flowers. I love how you used the teeny pearls on each square. I bet you put almost as much time into this quilt, as you would in a fabric life-size one!

Just Beautiful!

Thanks for sharing this!
