Beautiful

Happy Saturday, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast has me aching for spring! We are to find inspiration from Schreiner's Iris Gardens.....I fell in love with these gorgeous 'Strikingly Dramatic' lilies. For my card, I have used the 'Beauty' set along with the following ODBD Custom Dies: Flower Lattice Border Die, Pierced Ovals, and Ornate Ovals. The lilies were stamped with Stazon Jet Black and water-colored.  After the card was finished, I realized that my colors were not as deep as the inspiration photo....too late! :)

Happy Bird-Day To You!

Hi, everyone!  This weeks Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to incorporate any type of bird on your CAS card....I dusted off one of my older Stampin Up sets, Love Ya Bunches, for today's card.  I have hundreds of SU sets which haven't seen ink in years, so it made my heart happy to use this one today!  The birdies and sentiment were stamped onto a white card base, the grass was sponged over a piece of scratch paper, then the clouds were sponged over a punched scallop circle.  I didn't have any SU red baker's twine, so I used Lucky Limeade to match the grass.

Celebrating You

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Michele Reynolds aka Michelerey....congrats, Michele!!!  Wow, Michele has over 4000 photos in her gallery....there were so many that I fell in love with!  I was looking for inspiration to help me create a birthday card for my Step-Dad.....this gorgeous card was perfect!  I used the ink, spray and smash technique with navy blue and turquoise inks......somehow the panel came out looking purple, so I dug out some Vintage Violet cardstock (retired) for the card base.  Once the inked panel was dry, it was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles.  The sentiment is from 'Celebrating You'.  There was a piercing template on my desk, so I decided to use piercing under the 'Dragonfly Single' instead of twine.  Turquoise enamel dots and ink splatters were added to match the water-colored dragonfly.

Gift Box / Gift Card Holder Set

Spoonflower Soft Yellow Lace Fabric
Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Spoonflower site......I fell in love with this yellow lace pattern and was inspired to create a matching gift box and gift card holder.  For the box, I used the ODBD Custom 'The Giving Gift Box' Dies, along with the ODBD Custom 'Happy Birthday Caps' Die.  The matching gift card holder was cut from the ODBD Custom 'Gift Card Holder' Dies set with tags from the ODBD Custom 'A Gift for You' Dies set, along with a sentiment from All God's Blessings Stamp/Die Duo.  The tiny hearts were cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  When I started out, I did not intend to use black, however, the word die was not very visible, so I added the black shadow to it then coordinated the box and gift card holder with the little black hearts.

Happy Retirement!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper is Amy Marshall aka Kalla Walla.....congrats, Amy!  I am a huge fan of Amy's work and have featured her several times in the past few years for ODBD Customer Card of the Day.  I am super excited that she was chosen for this honor!  After cruising every page of her gallery, I chose this fun card to case today.  I loved the tropical theme, twine, and the message written in the sand, so I incorporated those elements in this retirement card for my Step-Dad who will be retiring this month after being at the same job for 47 years!  The image and sentiment are from the 'Happy Retirement' set and the background panel was stamped with the 'Rope Background'.  The scene was colored with sponges/ink and markers.  The following ODBD Custom Dies were used: Pierced Squares (resized), Pierced Rectangles, and Circles Dies (reverse mask for sponging the sun).  Metal brads and linen thread were added as finishing touches.  I will also be submitting this to the Fan Club Central Theme since I used a die technique (there is no tutorial on SCS yet, but I used the die-resizing technique to separate the sentiment from the image panel using the same square die.)

Here is a matching gift card holder I made with the following ODBD Custom Dies: Gift Card Holder, A Gift For You, Sparkling Stars, and on the inside: Pierced Rectangles Dies and a sentiment from 'Today and Everyday'.
