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.


Thanks for stopping by today!

For my first card, I have used the following items:  'White as Snow' Stamp/Die Duos (sentiment, snowman image and coordinating die), ODBD Custom Snowflake Sky Dies (popped up snowflake panel and polka dot frame panel), ODBD Custom Oval Stitched Rows Dies (sentiment panel), and ODBD Custom Ovals Dies (sentiment mat).  The light blue polka dot paper is from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2014. This was a very simple card to make....the only time consuming part was placing tiny pieces of foam tape on the back of the snowflake panel. The ribbon is white with silver threads woven through.
