Inspired Tropical Birthday

Photo from Cuaros Pinterest Board
Happy Saturday, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from the Cuaros Pinterest Board.....I just about fell outta my chair when I saw this amazing piece!!  I was hoping to find some inspiration to help me with my brother in law's birthday card and this was absolutely perfect!  The silhouettes and sentiment from 'Bon Voyage' were stamped in Stazon Jet Black (plus extra sponging in black at the bottom), a die from the ODBD Custom Circles Dies set was used for the mask and reverse mask for sponging the scene, then the panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  I did not add any embellishments so that it would look like framed art.  I will also be submitting this to the July 'Time To Relax' Fan Club challenge....what's more relaxing than a tropical sunset?!

Sure and Steadfast

Hi, everyone! This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Cindy Weeks aka Weekend Warrior....congrats, Cindy!!  I chose this amazing card to recreate today using the 'Anchor' set and 'Nautical Paper Collection', both from Our Daily Bread designs. Since I used speckled cardstock, I did not add any splatters like Cindy's card. I chose not to add any gems so that it's not lumpy for mailing.

Happy Retirement, Mom!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from the Jennifer McGuire Ink Blog....wow, what an awesome new discovery...no shortage of inspiration there!  I love all of her ink blending techniques and was drawn to this gorgeous card since it reminded me of a sunset.  My mom is retiring and I thought that a sunset paradise would be just right.  We have worked together for 26-1/2 years and I will sure will miss seeing her every day! (Pass the tissues!)  For her card, I stamped the silhouette and sentiment from the 'Bon Voyage' set with Stazon Jet Black; the sun was sponged using a cut-out from a circle die, then the sun was masked before sponging the background.  Since Mom loves Hawaii, I added a tropical flower cut with the ODBD Custom Frangipani Dies set. The frames were cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. I will also be squeezing this in at the last minute to the Sunrise/Sunset Fan Club challenge.

Birds of Paradise

Photo from Pinterest Board: Dessert Bites: Macarons and Meringues
Hi, everyone!  This is my second card for today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast.....for this card I chose this delish photo.....I love the yellow and green color combo, plus the pattern, green trim and blue handle on the cup reeled me in!  For my card, I stamped the ODBD 'Chalkboard Fan Background' in yellow, cut out the panel with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies, then cut out the aperature with the ODBD Custom Ovals Dies.  The white panel was sponged using a piece of scratch paper for the water and the clouds were sponged over a template cut with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  The image and sentiment are from the 'Aloha' set.  Two of the flowers were stamped on the bottom panel and one was stamped then cut out with the ODBD Custom Bird of Paradise Die to pop up over the frame. Some baker's twine and green gems were added for embellishments.

Stand Firm In The Faith

Happy Saturday, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is not only fun but super delicious!  We are to find inspiration from the Dessert Bites: Macarons and Meringues Pinterest Board......there are so many creative desserts there, but I fell in love with these adorable flamingos!! I just discovered a few days ago that I had purchased some 'Flirty Flamingo' cardstock so this is a perfect opportunity to use it! (I know I'm not the only stamper who buys things and forgets about them!)  Anyhoo.....I have used the 'Tickled Pink' set for the flamingos and scripture verse, cut the images out with the ODBD Custom Flamingos Dies, then popped them up with foam tape over a panel cut with the ODBD Custom Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies.  The scripture panel was cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Ovals Dies, matted with the ODBD Custom Ovals Dies. The scalloped panel needed a little somethin' somethin', so I added a black panel underneath and added a black pennant cut with the ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies to help balance out the colors. I didn't add any embellishments so that this would be easy to mail.

Cruisin' - Enjoy Every Moment!

Hi, everyone!  Today's Friday Free4All Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from any card playing idioms.....when I looked at the list, I saw 'Show Your Hand' and I knew what I wanted to do!  I love this photo of my hubby (who is 'showing his hand') from our recent cruise with our favorite bartender, Michael, in the background.  He made the best Bahama Mama's and Pina Coladas.....yeah, we're party animals alright! :)  I have used a mixture of new and previously released goodies from Our Daily Bread designs for this 6x6 layout:  sentiment and bird of paradise from 'Aloha', the ODBD Custom Bird of Paradise Die, ODBD Custom Ferns Dies, ODBD Custom Tropical Leaves Dies, ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies, ODBD Custom Bitty Borders Dies, Pennant Swag Alphabet, ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, and the ODBD Boho Bolds Paper Collection.

Everything Beautiful

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Beverly aka kraftyaunt.....congrats, Beverly!  I chose this gorgeous card because of the stunning colors, stitched dies and cool layout. For my card, I kept the green and yellow theme and layout, but chose to use the 'Chalkboard Vine Background' stamp instead of designer paper.  All of the panels were cut with the ODBD Custom Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, the scripture verse is from the 'Aloha' set, and the tropical flower was cut with the ODBD Custom Frangipani Dies set.

Flourish Like A Palm Tree

If you are looking for the July New Release party for Our Daily Bread designs, scroll down one post or click HERE.

***************************************************************************************************

Happy Saturday, everyone!!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is all about designer paper.  I chose a turquoise polka dot pattern from the ODBD Boho Bolds Paper Collection, cut it to 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 (same size as my card base), then centered and nested two dies from the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The outside (leftover) rectangle was adhered to the inside of my card (you can see it peeking out). The silhouette and scripture verse from 'Bon Voyage' were stamped in Stazon Jet Black, the sky was sponged with blue, magenta, and tangerine. The polka dot frame was popped up with foam tape; the flower cut from the ODBD Custom Hibiscus Dies and ODBD Custom Ferns Dies was popped up in the corner. Two blue gems were added for a simple embellishment.  I will also be submitting this to the Sunrise/Sunset Fan Club Theme Challenge.

The flamingos and sentiment are from the 'Tickled Pink' set; the flamingos were cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Flamingos' Dies. The number one was cut out with the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies.  The sentiment was stamped once in black and again in hot pink then fussy cut and popped up over the sponged scene.  The polka dot frame was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies out of the ODBD Boho Bolds Paper Collection.  A white satin bow was added in the corner.
