I Love You A Latte!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Wanda aka Wendy2512....congrats, Wanda!!  Wanda's gallery is IMMENSE and it was tough to choose just one card from many years of beautiful creations....I kept coming back to this super cute card!  I started by cutting the large panel with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies from a striped pattern from the ODBD Fall Favorites Paper Collection and the small rectangle was cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies from the ODBD Latte Love Paper Collection.  The coffee cups and sentiment are from the 'Hug in a Mug' Stamp/Die Duos set. The same striped pattern was used to paper piece the right cup and small heart was cut with the ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies set.  I added a 2nd sentiment below on a panel cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.  Instead of enamel dots, I used five eyelets which have been in my stash for about 15 years!  This card will go to a co-worker who is taking a leave of absence in order to care for her ailing parents.

First up is a card I made for my hubby with the 'Turtle Love' Stamp/Die Duos set for our 26th anniversary this week.  Instead of coloring the turtle, I chose a monochromatic look which matched the chevron pattern from the 'By The Shore' Paper Collection.  Linen thread and the tiny hearts cut from the ODBD Custom Umbrellas Dies set were used for simple embellishments.  ODBD Custom Rectangles Dies and ODBD Custom Circles Dies were also used in this design.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi, everyone!  Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there!!!  Today I would like to share two different Mother's Day cards created with the same set from Our Daily Bread designs, 'The Greatest Gift' Stamp/Die Duo.  For the first card I am using the Splitcoast April Fan Club sketch with a 'Perfect Blend' of purple and yellow to match the floral designer paper from the Whimsical Wildflowers Paper Collection. The designer paper was shaped with the ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Borders Dies and ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The butterflies were stamped on white with Stazon Jet black, cut out with the custom dies, then sponged with yellow and purple using a reverse mask.

The second version uses the same stamps, designer paper and border die, but the sentiment was stamped onto a panel cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Circles Dies set.  Baker's twine and sequins were used as a contrast to the lavender card base.

As You Graduate

Hi, everyone!   This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Connie aka Conniecrafter.....congrats, Connie!!  I became a huge fan of Connie's work many years ago while scouting for cards to feature on the ODBD Blog for Customer Card of the Day.  I searched this morning for an ODBD creation to case from Connie's gallery and found this beautiful card.  Though I was unable to stamp yesterday, I did pick out this butterfly artwork from Grandinroad for the Inspiration Challenge, so I am combining both challenges together....the layout from Connie's card and the colors of the butterfly piece.  This will be a graduation card for my niece, Chloe, for next weekend.  For my card, I have used the 'As You Graduate' set by ODBD and the tiny butterfly from 'Butterfly and Bugs' which was stamped in Versamark onto the card base. The image was stamped in Stazon Jet Black; the butterflies and sky were sponged in yellow; a clear glaze pen was used to create a resist effect for the butterflies, then turquoise was sponged over the rest of the image.  Since the ombre/gradient technique was used on my image panel, I will also be submitting this to the Fan Club Central Theme Challenge for April.

Spring Butterfly

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Beth aka lizzier....congrats, Beth!  Though I fell in love with her amazing scrapbook layouts, I chose this gorgeous card to case!  I loved the curved edge with the designer paper underneath and plenty of room for the image and sentiment at the top. (Though Beth was inspired by another stamper to color on colored cardstock, this layout design is hers, so it's the card design which I am case-ing today.)  For my card, I am using the medium sized butterfly from 'The Greatest Gift' Stamp/Die Duos set, along with one of the dies from the ODBD Custom 'Celebrate and Wish' Dies set.  The curved border was cut with the ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Borders Dies and the designer paper is from the ODBD 'Easter Card Collection 2016'.  The butterfly was colored with sponges in mauve and plum using a reverse mask.  Glimmer Mist and clear sequins were added for finishing touches. Since I used pastels and since the butterfly has spring blooms and birds, I will also be submitting this to the March Fan Club 'Spring Fever' Central Theme Challenge.

Let Your Dreams Set Sail

Glazed Jars from Carlyle Avenue
Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Carlyle Avenue....I fell in love with the colors of these glazed jars.....the link only shows the single jar, but my true inspiration was the photo with the jars and sailboat on that page. I used gray and navy blue ink with the Ink Spray and Smash technique with white cardstock.  Once the cardstock was dry, the panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Large Banners Dies and the image and quote from the NCC set, 'Sail Away' were stamped in Stazon Jet Black. A white chalk marker was used to highlight parts of the image.  Gray baker's twine was knotted and adhered across the top.

Our Daily Bread designs April New Releases!

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs April new release party!!  This month's release is full of spring-y goodness!!!  To see the entire release, view all of the designer samples, plus learn how to win some ODBD goodies, please visit this post.

For my samples today, I have used the following ODBD items:

ODBD The Greatest Gift Stamp/Die Duos ODBD Great Catch Stamp/Die Duos

ODBD Custom Fancy Circles Dies ODBD Custom Circles Dies

ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies ODBD Custom Pierced Circles Dies

ODBD Custom Lattice Background Die ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies

ODBD Cozy Quilt Paper Collection

My first card features the 'The Greatest Gift' Stamp/Die Duos set, ODBD Custom Lattice Background Die, ODBD Custom Pierced Circles Dies, ODBD Custom Circles Dies, and a pretty floral pattern from the ODBD Cozy Quilt Paper Collection.  The butterflies were stamped in black, cut out with the custom dies.  I wanted to keep the edges white, more than what the dies would cover, so I cut out three reverse masks by hand and sponged three different shades of orange.  (I use the "old school" technique of masking and sponging for a blended look since I don't own Copics or any blendable markers.) Though this set is perfect for Mother's Day, I made this card for my Mom's birthday.

My next card is more Clean and Simple, but it was fun to make.  The bluegill and fishing lure from the 'Great Catch' Stamp/Die Duos set were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, cut out with the custom dies, watercolored, then popped up with foam tape.  The background was created with three different shades of blue ink, using the Ink Spray and Smash technique (on a craft sheet or page protector, smear your inks, spray with water, then mop up the inks with your cardstock.) Once the panel was dry, it was cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, the sentiments were stamped (on the wrong end of the panel....I meant for the lightest shade to be at the top...duh!), the circle was cut from the panel, then layered onto mats cut with the ODBD Custom Fancy Circles Dies and ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies. (NOTE: between the ODBD Custom Circles Dies and the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies sets, you will find perfect sizes of circle layers to coordinate with the ODBD Custom Pierced Circles Dies and ODBD Custom Double Stitched Circles Dies,)  Once everything was assembled, I used a clear glaze pen on the fish's eye and on the fishing lure.
