ODBD Christmas Card Challenge

Good morning!  There is a new Stamping in Time with Betty posted on the ODBD blog this morning!  Betty's assignment is to make Christmas cards!  Well, that helped to get me going as I am committed to making Christmas cards all year long and had not met my commitment for June yet!  And today is the last day!!!  ARGH!!!  Anyway,  I kept it simple to make it go faster!  And I made ten!!   Wahoo!  Anyway, I used the Christmas Blessings set and stamped the sentiment in the blank area of the Cuttlebug embossing.  I added red rhinestones on some until I ran out, and did a few cards with silver rhinestones.  I made ten perfect bows with my Bow Easy and glued them on to complete the cards. 
The card bases are SU! Baja Breeze and the vanilla layers are by The Paper Studio.

  Thanks for stopping by today!  
We invite you to join us tomorrow for our monthly new release blog hop! 
See you there!!!

Sneak Peek!

Hi there!  I've got a quick sneak peek for you!  Our Daily Bread designs has some great sets coming out on the first!  This Sweet William is one of them and it coordinates beautifully with Spellbinders Blossom Three!  I cut the card base with the largest Blossom from SU! Blushing Bride card stock and cut one other to layer over the top of the base.  I ran this through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.  I stamped the flower onto some Basic Grey designer paper and detailed the flower with a SU! Pretty in Pink marker.  Recently, while making another card I used Martha's lace border punch to create a border of pretty circles from some scraps of SU! Blush Blossom card stock, but didn't use them.  I cut each circle out and added them to the larger blossom and to the center of the Sweet William.  The XOXO is from a new set perfect for scrap-bookers and card makers alike!  The set is called Large Scrapbook Words and will be available also on the first!  I cut this out with a Spellbinders tag and attached it to the flower along with some lace and those little things from the wedding section of Michael's (can't remember what they are called!) with a large pink brad from my stash.  The entire card is sprayed with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.  
That's it!  Glad you stopped by for a peek!  See you again soon!!

God's Blessings to You!

It's time for another 'summer-y' inspiration at the Passionately Artistic Blog!!!  
Good morning, so glad you are here!!
If you would like to share your summertime inspirations,
please visit the Passionately Artistic Blog to link up your project for us to see!!! 

Here how to make this card:

1. Cut and score card base using Core'dination card stock.  Save the end for the border.

2, Use Martha Stewart border punch, then emboss with Cuttlebug border above the punched out border.  Trim the top edge and punch out the Martha Stewart butterflies from that piece.

3. Stamp Our Daily Bread designs Mini Tags 3 sentiment and cut out with Spellbinders Oval.  
Use Scallop Spellbinders Oval for the mat.

4. Cut out designer paper (K&Co) for the background.

5. Adhere velvet ribbon, lace, butterflies and bow with Beacon 3-in-1 glue.  
Finally add the rhinestones. (Larger rhinestones are Want2Scrap)

Crochet and Bling

Good morning!  Hope you are having a great week!  

I played in The Shabby Tea Room challenge this week to use your favorite papers and embellishments!  I love K&Co designer papers and of course I love those pearls and bling swirls!  So this is what I came up with.  The designer paper is from K&Co Watercolor Bouquet pack.  It has touches of glitter on the design.  I decided to stamp the Crochet Background from Our Daily Bread designs on the entire background and I like how it turned out!  The little bits of flowers and glitter show through in an interesting way.  The sentiment is called Each Minute and is stamped in brown and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The pearl and bling swirls are by Recollections.  I usually cut these swirls down to a more manageable size and use the smaller pieces to accent on other cards.  What you see here was actually one long swirl that I cut into three pieces.  Well, really four, that long tail to the right was rearranged to make it look like it came from that same swirl!  The three larger clear rhinestones are from my stash that no longer has the original packaging.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy your week!

Midnight Madness, Doodling and Absolutely No White

Good morning to you, good morning to you, good morning dear friends, good morning to you!

I have met three challenges with my card today!  WooHoo!

I am still lovin' this new stamp from Our Daily Bread designs with the Jim Croce lyrics!  I stamped it on one side of designer paper (it was in my scrap pile so I can't remember if it is Anna Griffin or K&Co) and the other side is my background paper.  It is pink and cream, so I used a little scrap of Neenah cream for that one little swirl to the side.  The base card and little flowers are Blush Blossom.  I have only a few little scraps left of Blush Blossom and I am going to miss it terribly!  To comply with the great Midnight Madness sketch, I used strips of lace behind the ovals.  And for the Stampin' Sisters challenge, I doodled around the ovals with my Pretty in Pink marker.  And since I was in the doodling mood, I did some embellishment doodling too, with tons of pearls and Martha flowers and a Martha butterfly!  I also sprayed the final card with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist!  Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have a wonderful day!

A Blessing from God

Hope you are having a great week!  Here is my card for this week's Passionately Artistic Be Inspired Wednesday!  We are still using the theme of summer and what is more summery than a beautiful butterfly?  This card is kind of clean and simple for me huh?  The sentiment is a new stamp from Our Daily Bread designs called Each Minute.  The Oval and Lacey oval are Spellbinders dies and I used my Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut them out.  The butterfly is also from Our Daily Bread designs.  It is stamped onto Core'dinations and cut out with the coordinating die.  The Core'dinations card stock background is embossed with Cuttlebug's Kassie's Brocade embossing folder.  I added vintage lace and beautiful black rhinestones from Want2Scrap.  That's it!  Thanks for stopping by!  See you again soon!!!

Kind Words are the Flowers

Hi everyone!  Here is another card with a new stamp from Our Daily Bread designs called Kind Hearts!  Such a great sentiment to use for a special thank you!  The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug Victoria folder.  The lace is vintage (love my vintage lace, courtesy of Mom!).  I punched all those little flowers with a SU! punch and smooshed them into a piece of foam with a stylus to make them perk up!  LOL!  
These are all glued to a Spellbinders Lacey Rectangle surrounding the sentiment.  I added pink stickles to each flower center.  The bow was made with a Bow Easy and I added little Martha twigs behind the bow!  
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a great night!

For Eternity

Hi there!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  

I've got another card to share with one of the new stamps available this month from Our Daily Bread designs.  It is called Save Time and I love it!  I used to sing this song by Jim Croce over and over!  It is a classic!  A couple of things to note on this card, the swirls accents on either side of the frame are from the Spellbinders Floral Accents die set.  I hid the flower portion of the die cut under the lace and added the pink fuzzy brads over it.  The brads were 'smushed' into a Sahara Sand ink pad to dirty them up a little because they were a tad too pink!  I used pink pearls and white pearls.  And the whole card was spritzed with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist!  Thanks for looking and I hope you have a great week!

Here is my supply list:

Various Spellbinders Dies
SU! White, Blushing Bride, and Sahara Sand card stocks
SU! Sahara Sand Ink
 Vintage lace
Foam Tape and Beacon glue
Sizzix Embossing Folder
Glimmer Mist

Fit for a Princess

Hi there!  Hope you have enjoyed your Sunday!  I am trying to get some needed cards made up and I have one to show you!  A very special someone in my life is having a birthday this week and I made this for her!!!  I think she will like this, as it's a little bit grown up but has that young princess feel too.  I am entering this into the Shabby Tea Room challenge this week to use embossing.  I cut the card shape and centers with Spellbinders Blossom Three, Classic Circle and Scallop Circle dies and my Grand Calibur machine.  The main blossom is embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The birthday sentiment is from the Mini Tags Three set from Our Daily Bread designs.  I used an EKSuccess punch to create the strip behind the center and added SU! seam binding.  Then I added a Bow Easy bow, tons of pearls and three little Martha butterflies.  To finish it of I sprayed it with Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Mist!  Hope your week is blessed!  Thanks for stopping by!
