Here are the new and previously released items featured in my two cards today:
My first card features the Volleyball Stamp/Die Duos set, with an Olympics twist! I absolutely LOVE beach volleyball when the Olympics roll around, so I colored the volleyball with yellow and blue plus made some sandy hills by tearing and sponging kraft cardstock. The kraft and white panels were cut with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. The clouds were sponged over a template cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies. The "net" was created by cutting a strip from a recycled onion bag (this proves to my hubby that I am a pack-rat for a reason! lol!!) I used yellow baker's twine to mimic the top and bottom of the net. The Volleyball word was stamped on a white panel cut out with the ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies (sponged to match the sky) and matted with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.
My second card features the Softball Stamp/Die Duos set. I played softball in my early twenties and absolutely loved it, so I was excited to see this new set! I was extra excited knowing that I had one piece of florescent yellow cardstock in my stash...yay!! The polka dot paper is from the ODBD Old Glory Paper Collection and matched the red stitching really well. The "home plate" was created by cutting a rectangle with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, then carefully cutting diagonally with a die from the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Squares Dies. (I practiced with scratch paper to get the measurements just right.) The Eat, Sleep, Play sentiment was stamped one word at a time onto small rectangles cut out with the ODBD Custom Log Cabin Quilt Die. (Tip: I LOVE using this quilt die since it has so many different sized rectangles for small sentiments!) The Softball word was stamped then cut out with the ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies; the mat was cut with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.
Thanks for hanging out with us!
