North Coast Creations September New Releases!

Hi, everyone!  I am super excited to be a guest designer again this month for North Coast Creations!   Check out all of the adorable new stamps and dies HERE.  My designer sisters created the most amazing, creative projects.....check them out here:

* Sandee * Julie * Dawn * Lisa * Chris * Angie (me!) * Maggie *

Here are the items used in my two samples for today:

NCC Llama Tell You NCC Sweet Shoppe Paper Collection

ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies

ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies

For my first card, a white panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, then the image from the new 'Llama Tell You' set was stamped three times.  The clouds were sponged over a template cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  For a colorful mat, a pattern from the NCC Sweet Shoppe Paper Collection was cut with the same rectangle set. After coloring each llama, a clear glaze pen was used to highlight their eyes.

For my second card, the image from 'Llama Tell You' was stamped on white, colored, then fussy cut. (An extra nose was stamped and colored to pop up for dimension.)  I used the 'Faux Wood' technique on a dark red card by swiping a brown ink pad from top to bottom to create the wood grain pattern.  The frame was cut using the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles. A clear glaze pen was added to the eyes to give them a realistic look.

Coffee Lovers Fall Coffee Blog Hop

Hi, everyone! Did you know that the Fall Coffee Lover's Blog Hop is going on right now?  Our Daily Bread designs is one of the Super Sponsors again this quarter and it was my turn to make a sample for the ODBD Blog post.  Check out the ODBD post here and the Coffee Hop here.

For my card, I used the following items:  ODBD Custom Beverage Cup Dies, 'Autumn Blessings' stamp set and coordinating ODBD Custom Fall Leaves and Acorn Dies, ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Borders Dies, and a pattern from the ODBD Cozy Quilt Paper Collection, along with some gold sequins and burlap ribbon.

Coffee Is Always A Good Idea!

Happy Saturday, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Audrie's 'My New House Ideas' Pinterest board.  When I saw this awesome coffee station, I was inspired by several aspects of it: coffee (need I say more?!), the gorgeous marble countertop, and the golden leaf handles for the canisters which match the gold tray! The countertop made me want to try the tissue paper technique which I first tried on this card. The coffee pot reminded me of my favorite stamp from the 'I Love Coffee' set by Our Daily Bread designs.....this is my motto!! :) The leaves from 'Autumn Blessings' were gold embossed on gold cardstock, then cut out with the ODBD Custom Fall Leaves and Acorn Dies.  To cut out the sentiment panels, I used the ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies and ODBD Custom Ovals Dies.  Once the tissue paper was adhered to a piece of white cardstock which was ran through a Xyron machine, the panel was cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  I will also be submitting this to the September Fan Club challenge since the tissue paper has wrinkles in it.  Plus, the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is going on....will submit there as well!

Patriotic Butterflies

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Rachel aka stampinrachel...congrats, Rachel!!  I chose this super fun card to recreate because of the awesome layout! Instead of fruit, my three objects are butterflies. The three butterflies were cut out with the ODBD Custom Bitty Butterflies Dies, the rectangle panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, the sentiment from 'Let Freedom Ring' was stamped on white then cut out with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies (the die was resized to fit the sentiment perfectly). The patriotic butterfly ribbon is some I found in the $1 bin at Michael's many years ago... I finally have the perfect chance to use it!

CAS Cowboy Silhouette

Hi, everyone!  This week's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to create a CAS card with a Western theme.  I chose the 'Howdy' set from Our Daily Bread designs to create a birthday card for my uncle.  I cut a piece of cratch paper A2 size, then die cut a rectangle out of it to create a mask.  The silhouette was stamped in Stazon Jet black, then eggplant, navy, and tangerine were sponged to create the background.  Once the mask was removed, some doodling was added for a frame.

Always Be There For You

Hi, everyone!  This week's Technique Lovers' Challenge is to create a quick, easy to duplicate, card for someone in need.  I have used the 'To My Friend' set by Our Daily Bread designs to create this quick, one layer card for a friend.  I chose royal blue and lime green so that I may also submit to the Less Is More color challenge.

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Chris Smith aka inkpad.....congrats, Chris!!  Wow, what an awesome gallery!!  I had a piece of Bo Bunny designer paper picked out for my niece's birthday (who loves Japanese designs) but needed help coming up with a card design.  This gorgeous card gave me the jump start I needed!  I changed the strip from right to left and used a die cut instead of strip of cardstock, but used the matted oval design for my sentiment.  I decided to cut some flowers to match the cherry blossoms in the paper. Here are the items from Our Daily Bread designs used in the making of my card: 'Beauty' stamp set, ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles and Pierced Ovals Dies, ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies, ODBD Custom Bitty Blossoms Dies, and the ODBD Custom Flower Lattice Die.

ODBD Let Freedom Ring ODBD Justice For All

ODBD Custom USA Flag Die ODBD Stars and Stripes Paper Collection

ODBD Custom Double Stitched Stars Dies ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars Dies

My first card features the awesome new ODBD Custom USA Flag Die, a sentiment from the 'Let Freedom Ring' stamp set, matted and framed with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Stars Dies and ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars Dies. The flag die was cut in silver, navy, red, and white, then the pieces were put together atop a piece of cardstock which I turned into a sticker with my Xyron machine. It was so easy to adhere them this way instead of gluing down one piece at a time!

My second card took about ten minutes to make....yay!  I cut a strip from one of the patterns in the new Stars and Stripes Paper Collection, stamped the Pledge of Allegiance from 'Justice for All', then glued on three tiny stars which were leftover from the ODBD Custom USA Flag Die from my first card!

My third card is a shaker card which I created with another design from the Stars and Stripes Paper Collection and the 'Let Freedom Ring' stamp set.  The designer paper was trimmed down to a 5x5 square; the shaker element was created by stamping the Star Spangled Banner onto a piece of acetate then cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Circles Dies set.  Foam tape created the wall for the silver micro-beads then another circle cut from cardstock sealed the beads in.  Some tiny silver stars leftover from the USA Flag card above were added as embellishments.

Daughter of the King!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Ways To Use It Challenge is all about the number 3: three panels, three folds, etc.  I chose three tiny silver hearts for this 1st birthday card for my niece, Molly!  This stamp set, 'Princess', from Our Daily Bread designs, is retired, unfortunately, but it's still one of my go-to sets for little girls in my family.  The crown was stamped in Stazon Jet Black onto silver metallic paper, then metallic pens were used to color the gems.  The tiny hearts were cut with the ODBD Custom 'Umbrellas' Dies set, the large hearts were cut with the ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Dies.  The crown was fussy cut and wrapped around the top heart panel before adhering to the scalloped mat.  The silver '1' was cut out with the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies; the polka dot panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The yummy polka dot and coordinating paper is from the ODBD Pastel Paper Pack.

A Mighty Warrior

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Christine Alexander aka calex....congrats, Christine!  I fell in love with this clever CAS balloon card.  I have been trying to come up with something clever for a birthday card for my nephew, so this balloon design along with the camo background technique from last week just seemed to be a perfect combo! Since the camouflage background technique calls for crumpling the paper, I was unable to copy exactly the masked and sponged balloon like Christine's card but kept the same layout with my die cut balloon. Once the camo background was finished, the balloon was cut out using the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies, the kraft panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, and the scripture from 'Not Forgotten' was stamped in the corner.

Play Ball!

Stacked Baseball Lamp from Christmas Tree Shops
Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Christmas Tree Shops site....I chose this adorable baseball lamp for my inspiration.  The red stitching on the lampshade gave me the idea to use some hand-stitching on my card. The stamps I used today are from the 'Baseball' Stamp/Die Duos set; the 'baseball' was cut from the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Circles Dies, matted with the ODBD Custom Circles Dies; a die from the ODBD Custom Stitched Ovals Dies set was used to trace the outline for the stitches; a small paper piercer was used to pierce the holes; some red embroidery thread was used to sew the stitches. I will also be submitting this to the 'Less Is More' challenge which is to use something on your CAS card which you would not normally use.....my unusual item is embroidery thread and hand-stitching.

#1 Steeler's Fan!

Hi, everyone!   This week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoast is Diane aka HappyInMarco....congrats, Diane!  I chose this beautiful card to case today because I loved the layered rectangular framing...clean layouts like this really speak to me!  I have used the All-Star Jersey set and ODBD Custom Sports Jerseys Dies from Our Daily Bread designs.   I absolutely love these jerseys, which make it so easy to customize your projects with whatever color themes or numbers you need!  This is a birthday card for my nephew, Caleb, who is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan and his favorite player is running back Le'Veon Bell. I added the stripes on the sleeves with a black marker and ruler, then colored them with yellow.  The sentiment panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies and matted with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies set.  The tiny stars are from the ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars Dies and the rectangles were cut with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  This was so quick and fun to make!!!

For The Glory of God

Fitbit Shooting Star Badge
Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Fitbit Blog.....I discovered this post which showed all of the different badges you can earn and this Shooting Star badge sent me straight to my craft room to make this card!  Once the card was finished, I realized by looking at the badge again that I should have used teal instead of turquoise, but too late now! :)  I have used the following items for this card:  'Teamwork' stamp set, ODBD Custom Double Stitched Stars, Circles, and Squares Dies, and the ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars Dies (tiny stars). (Shortcut tip:  the tiny stars were cut out of the center of the large stars to conserve cardstock!)

Clean and Simple Soccer Card

Hi, everyone!  This week's Clean and Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast is to create a monochromatic card with a pop of color in the image.  This is a perfect opportunity to ink up the 'Soccer' Stamp/Die Duos set from ODBD.  This was a super simple and quick design with basic stamping.  The tiny red heart was cut with the ODBD Custom Umbrellas Dies set.

North Coast Creations August New Releases!

Hi, everyone!  I'm so excited to be joining the design team from North Coast Creations this month for a super fun new release!  Though I am featuring just one set (and new awesome paper), there are several more sets to see.....check them all out HERE!  To see some gorgeous and fun samples with these new sets, please visit my designer sisters' blogs:

* Dawn * Julie * Sandee * Angie (that' me!) * Maggie*

North Coast Creations Sprinkled With Love Stamps and Dies North Coast Creations Sweet Shoppe Paper Collection

Our Daily Bread designs Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies

Both of my samples today feature the 'Sprinkled With Love' Stamps and Dies set, along with the NCC 'Sweet Shoppe' Paper Collection and ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  For this card, the scene was sponged using masking with scratch paper and the clouds were sponged over a template cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies set. Black hemp was used to tie the donut to the donut truck.  My inspiration for creating this fun scene comes from a movie (can't remember the name) in which a lady drags her prize-winning giant pumpkin behind her truck to the county fair but arrives with just a portion of the pumpkin left!

My next card is a shaker card with micro beads.  I chose two coordinating papers from the Sweet Shoppe Paper Collection for starters and used the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies to cut the panels.  Using the cupcake die, I cut out three openings from the ivory panel.  A piece of acetate was adhered to the back of the panel and then the cupcakes were carefully stamped through the cut-out openings onto the acetate.  On a piece of white cardstock, three cupcakes were stamped then cut out. The bottom portion of each stamped image was trimmed by hand, colored with markers, then adhered onto the acetate.  On the back side of the panel, foam tape walls were placed around the frosting areas, micro-beads were added, the backing removed from the foam tape and a panel was added to seal in the micro-beads. Red metallic dots and baker's twine was added for embellishments.

DTGD Get Well Wishes

Hi, everyone!  This card was one of the last posted for the Dare To Get Dirty challenges last week at Splitcoast Stampers for Fan Club members.  Next year I would love to take a few days off of work during the event since I would LOVE to be able to make one project per challenge and enter in the Queen prize drawings!  

For my card, the image from 'As You Graduate' was stamped in Stazon Jet Black then sponged with Melon Mambo, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Sahara Sand.  The cantaloupe card base was stamped in Versamark with the 'Trois Jolies Papillons' set, then the sentiment from 'Sending My Love' Stamp/Die Duos was stamped in black at the bottom.

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Sharon aka shendrian....congrats, Sharon!  I chose this beautiful card to case today, but turned it into a masculine card.  I loved how the designer paper was cut at an angle and the sentiment stamped at the bottom.  I first chose this striped pattern from the ODBD Patriotic Paper Collection; since it had a hint of light blue between the red stripes, I chose a baby blue card base.  The football and sentiments are from the 'Football' Stamp/Die Duos set; the stars are all from the ODBD Custom Sparkling Stars Dies set. Since my watercolor skills can get a bit sloppy, I used a clear glaze pen to protect the white sections on the football and border, then watercolored the rest of the ball.
