Christian Paper Crafts Praise & Paper Crafts Challenges!

Hi everyone! Christian Paper Crafts had their quarterly Praise And Paper Craft Night on Friday, with four fun challenges! It was a blast hanging out with everyone last to get my cards uploaded! You have until Sunday noon EDT to upload your projects to qualify for a Gift Certificate from Our Daily Bread designs, who is the sponsor of the PPN this time around...thanks, Kelley!!

For the 1st PPN Challenge, there were two color combos to choose from (photo samples above). I loved them both, so I made one project for each! This card (which I can't believe I made in under an hour!), was in my mind yesterday as soon as my DH told me I had happy mail, which included these adorable jingle bells! The bells led me to the new ODBD set, 'Holiday Ornaments', plus Jonia's colors and voila!

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Holiday Ornaments';
Cardstock: SU Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White;
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, SU Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Going Gray;
Accessories: SEI twine, SU silver bells, Nestabling pearls, CB Damask EF, 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist;
Techniques: Clean and Simple, Dry Embossing;
Size: A2.


Since the theme of the PPN is "Gifts From Above", the second challenge was all about gift-wrapping. Create a gift box or package, stamp your own wrapping paper, or decorate a gift bag, etc. I chose to decorate a Kraft gift bag by using several stamps from the Our Daily Bread designs set, Randi's Song, while following the colors in the color challenge above.

I have also used the ODBD Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge, which is to use Fall Colors along with your ODBD stamps...done...and done!!!

This is the full view (above), which shows the bag, plus the tissue paper which was spritzed with 'Mimosa' Glimmer Mist so that it would match the fall colors of the bag. The close-up below shows more of the stamping detail. For a closer look at each view, click on the photos.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Randi's Song';
Cardstock: SU More Mustard (tag);
Ink: SU Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizazz, and More Mustard;
Accessories: Kraft Gift Bag, Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaf Die, SU Buttons and Linen Thread.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed weekend!!
