This Is The Day The Lord Has Made

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Becky aka bscovill....congrats, Becky!!  I really loved the framed layout of this beautiful card, so I followed the same layout with different papers and used a scripture verse instead of an image. The stamps I used are from the 'Celebration' set, plus I used the following ODBD Custom Dies: Bitty Butterflies, Double Stitched Pennant Flags, and Double Stitched Rectangles.  The designer paper is from the ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection.

You're Out of this World!!

Dichroic Glass Pendant from Southern Highland Craft Guild
Hi again!  I went back for a second round for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast.  When I saw this amazing glass pendant, it looked like a galaxy to me and inspired me to open a new set I bought more than six months ago and have not used, 'Rocket Man' and coordinating 'Space Man' custom dies from North Coast Creations.  Instead of trying a messy technique to create the galaxy, I sprayed pearl and turquoise Glimmer Mist on a black card base, then pressed it with a book to keep it from warping while it dried.  Meanwhile, I stamped, colored, and cut out the earth and Martian. The sentiment was cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies set. This was really quick and easy.....quick and easy = happiness!! :)

Dogwood Calendar Page

Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Southern Highland Craft Guild Online Store.....I chose this beautiful bluebird card with spring blossoms and blue sky background for inspiration for the April page of the birthday calendar I have been working on (forevah!).  I used the images and scripture verse from the ODBD stamps (what used to be the 'Sing to the Lord' set'Bird' single and 'Dogwood Mini' set.  After stamping the images, I used a clear glaze pen on the white dogwood flowers so that it would act as a resist when sponging the blue background.  It took a little while to do, but it made the sponging so easy!  (Click on the photo to enlarge.)

November Calendar Page

Hi, everyone!  Today I would like to share the next finished page of the birthday calendar I've been working on.  For November, I went with a Thanksgiving theme....I mean, who doesn't think of Thanksgiving for November?  The cornicopia in the corner plus the sentiment is from the 'Give Thanks' set by Our Daily Bread designs and the wheat border is from the 'Wheat' mini set, also from ODBD.  The images were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, colored with markers and the edges sponged for a more rustic feel.

Wishing You The Best!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Donna Rudy aka Krashscrapper....congrats, Donna!!  Wow, what an awesome, fun gallery to cruise through!!  I finally decided on this gorgeous card to case today.  I kept the blue/brown color combo, used brads instead of gumdrops, kept the 'wishing' theme, and used the curved shape with the sentiment at the bottom.  For my card, I used the following items from Our Daily Bread designs: 'Wishing Words' Stamp/Die Duo, ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Border Dies, ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, and the ODBD Shabby Pastels Paper Collection. Instead of ribbon, I used baker's twine.  This is for a co-worker who is leaving our company.....sniff, sniff!!

Let Me Sow Love

Calendar from Paperchase
Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Paperchase site.....I've been wanting to try the recent tutorial on tissue paper watercolor, so when I saw this gorgeous calendar front, I had my colors for the technique!!  I dabbed raspberry and peach inks on a craft mat then spritzed and let the colors blend.  A piece of white tissue paper soaked up the inks and then once dry, was adhered to a cardstock panel which I turned into a sticker with my Xyron. Once the tissue was adhered, the 'Prayer of St. Francis' and birds from 'Francis of Assisi' set were stamped in black; the panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, matted in white, then pearls were added in the corners.

Birthday Llama

Pillow from The Company Store
Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from 'The Company Store'......when I saw this colorful pillow, it reminded me of the 'Sweet Shoppe' Paper Collection from North Coast Creations.  The festive colors in the paper led me to the 'Llama Tell You' stamp set.  The llama was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, fussy cut, then watercolored slightly with blush on his face and ears. The following cutting dies from ODBD were also used: Double Stitched Rectangles, Double Stitched Ovals, and Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.

In Everything, Give Thanks

Hi, everyone!  This week's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to show a message of gratitude on your card.  I've been looking through my old Stampin Up sets this week and realized that some have not been used in ten or more years!  So, for my card today, I combined the turkey from 'Turkey Talk' and a scripture verse from 'Happy Harmony'.  Some punched leaves were added for a fun embellishment. I will also submit this to the Fan Club Central Theme of 'Holiday Happiness' for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Two Quick Cards for Featured Stamper

Hi, everyone! This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is one of my ODBD designer sisters, Helen Gullett aka HelenG.....congrats, my Sistah Stick!!!!! (Our team at Our Daily Bread designs lovingly call each other 'Breadsticks', hence the 'Sistah Stick'!) What an awesome gallery Helen has, full of Bible Journaling, Mixed Media, Clean and Simple, and more...I finally decided on this gorgeous card since I need to force myself to do more ink techniques.  I needed to make a thank you card for a friend at work who has been helping me with a difficult transition to a new position there, plus she is just plain awesome as a human being and I want her to know how much she is appreciated!!  For the background on my card, I used the Ink Spritzer technique (on a craft sheet since I didn't have a page protector) with Pink Passion and Blackberry Bliss inks.  The butterflies are from the 'Trois Jolies Papillons' set by Our Daily Bread designs, the sentiment is from 'Sentiments Collection' cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies set.  The image panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Since I forgot to add some ink splatters like on Helen's card, I added some sequins instead.

The second card I cased from Helen's gallery is this gorgeous card. I loved the layered trees and thought it would be perfect for a masculine birthday card! The trees were stamped with an un-named stamp from Inkadinkado in Certain Celery, Old Olive, and Mossy Meadow.  The sentiments from the Stampin Up set, 'Happy Everything' were stamped in Mossy Meadow and Certain Celery.  The panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  Some linen thread was added to match the Crumb Cake card base.

Frangipani Calendar Page

Agraria San Franciso Lemon Verbena AirEssence Diffuser
Hi again, everyone!  My first card today was pretty quick, so I'm going back for a second helping of the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast!  When I saw this Lemon Verbena diffuser, it reminded me of the frangipani (plumeria) flowers from the stamp set 'Sweet As Perfume' from ODBD.  I've been working on a birthday calendar for my mother-in-law and I'm so excited to use this stamp set for the July page. Backstory: Hubby and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon (over 25 years ago) and brought back some Plumeria starts (which looked like cigars).  My mother-in-law and I both planted the starts; mine only lived about a year but hers flourished and grew to be about six feet tall!  Once a year it would bloom and it was pure joy!!!!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Agraria San Franciso....I fell in love with the rich colors of this bath and body ensemble and used them to create a birthday card for a co-worker.  For my card, I used a sentiment from 'Rose' and the following dies, all from ODBD: Trees and Deer Dies, Curvy Slopes Dies, Sunburst Background Dies, Pierced Rectangles, Pierced Circles, and Double Stitched Rectangles.

Live In The Sunshine

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at splitcoast is Tapdancer....I chose this beautiful 'Bare Tree' card to case today.  It reminded me of the Artistic Outpost set, 'The Outpost', which has a giant tree image.  This will be a birthday card for one of my adult nephews. The image was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, then colored with sponges using masking; the sentiment was cut apart, sponged and adhered separately. The panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies and linen thread was added at the bottom as twine was added to Tapdancer's card.

January Calendar - Colorful Snowflakes

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from Balsam Hill....I loved the gorgeous colors of this ornament set and decided to stamp multi-colored snowflakes and sentiments on the January page of the birthday calendar I have been working on for the past month. For this calendar, I've been trying to use permanent ink whenever possible since it may be used for years to come, so I chose the closest Stazon ink colors I had on hand to match the inspiration piece.  The following stamps from ODBD were used: 'Snowflake Sentiments', 'Snowflake Mini' Set, 'Snowy Blessings', and 'Sparkling Snowflakes' (retired).
