Two or Three More...

Hi everyone!  Here are more Christmas cards that I have made recently but haven't posted!  I just got the Spellbinders Poinsettia and had to make a card with it!!!  Love this die along with the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares!!!  The bow was made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker.

This LaBlanche Santa stamp can be purchased through Our Daily Bread designs.  Just call them at  877-451-4909 and ask for the LaBlanche Santa being sold through their sister company, North Coast Creations.  He is peeking out from the ODBD/Spellbinders Windows Die!  I colored the pearls with a copic marker to match the paper!  The sentiment is from the ODBD set called Holiday Ornaments.

And last, but not least, this card is made with a November release stamp called Chickadee Ornament.
   I colored the image with copics and added a little stickles.

Don't forget to join us for the ODBD new release blog hop on Saturday the 1st!!!  Look forward to seeing you there!  And thanks so much for stopping by today!!!

Are You Ready For Some Turkey?

Two more days until Thanksgiving!  I love Thanksgiving, don't you?  I am blessed with a wonderful family and lots of friends and I am eternally thankful!  I hope you and yours have a blessed day too!  

I've got a couple of cards to share today.  
This first one is made with the gorgeous ODBD set called Chickadee Ornament.

The image is colored with copics and cut out with a Spellbinders Circle and framed with a Spellbinders Lacey Circle.  The sentiment is cut out with a Spellbinders Ornament set.  I made the bow with Becca's Peg Bow Maker and the pearls are colored with a copic marker to match! 

And this card is made with the Turtle Dove Ornament set!

Again I colored the image with copics, cut it out and framed it with Spellbinders dies.  And topped it off with a pretty seam binding bow made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker!

I am linking these to the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers and 
You should check it out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I love trying to find ways to use ODBD sets in ways other than they were intended.  I have used two of the new Christmas sets this month to make this 'Love You' card!   I followed the sketch challenge #411 today on SCS for my layout.  The papers are Prima.  I distressed all the layers with my fingernail and inked the edges.  I stamped the chickadee from the Chickadee Ornament set, cut him out and sponged ink on him.  He is popped up with foam tape and has a layer of Glossy Accents that has not quite dried as you can see in the photo!  I used a black SU! marker on the word Love from the same set and stamped it.  Then I did the same technique with the word You from The Babe set!  I made the seam binding (Hug Snug) bow with Becca's Peg Bow Maker gluing it down with Beacon 3-in-1 glue and then added the little Prima flower on top!  The pretty lace and the strip of pearls were a gift from a sweet friend!  I am also submitting this to Word Art Wednesday!

So glad you could stop by and I hope to see you again soon!!

I Just Had To...

Yep.  I just kinda had to make some more of those little trees!!!

So this is for the TLC today to make Folded Christmas Trees.  I posted a card earlier today too!  This time I made a little 3x3 gift card to go with the card.  I kept this monochromatic and CAS and I added pearls to the trees for a more elegant look.  The sentiment is from the ODBD Turtle Dove Ornament set and was added with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig. 

Thanks again for coming by!  See you again soon!

Happy Monday!

Hello there!!!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  It was quiet here.  I wanted to say Happy Marine Corp birthday (Saturday) to all the Marines out there!  My hubby is former Marine and we celebrate this occasion every year!  Also, I want to thank all the Veterans, former and current, for their service to our country!  Without you, where would we be?  So from the bottom of my heart, THANKS!

Today, I have two cards to share with you.  This first one is for the ODBDSLC129 challenge, Winter White.  I used the new ODBD set called Turtle Dove Ornament.  I love this set!  I colored the image with copics and cut it out with a Spellbinders Circle.  I framed it using Spellbinders Exquisite Circles and added lots of rhinestones!  I also added touches of White Paint pen dots and Stickles!

And this one is for the TLC403 on Splitcoast using the Folded Christmas Tree technique.  I used some SU! designer paper (retired I believe) to make the trees.  Here is a link to the tutorial from Beate.  The sentiment is from the Turtle Dove Ornament set too.  I cut the sentiment out with one of the Spellbinders Exquisite Circles and added a bow made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker.  Stickles are on the trees along with some buttons from my stash.

That's it for today!  Hope you enjoy your Monday and I will see you again soon! 
 So glad you stopped by!

The Babe

Good morning!  Hope you are having a great day so far! 

 In case you didn't know, 
there is a great blog hop going on today at ODBD!  For the Love of Family!  Go check it out!

I am playing in a few challenges with this card!

CCC12-Christmas Card Challenge 2012
WT399-No Fall Colors

I just love this new ODBD set called The Babe!

 Such a precious image!  I purposely kept this card CAS in order to focus on the baby Jesus.  I colored the image with copics and cut out a frame with Spellbinders Squares and Marvelous Squares.  I added a tiny double bow I made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker as my only embellishment!

 Thank you for coming by today!  God Bless You!

Welcome to the ODBD November Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs November Release Blog Hop!!!  We are so excited to have you with us today!!  I am your first stop on the hop this morning but if you just happened to stop by, you may want to start over at the ODBD Blog to get all the details of the hop!  If for some reason a link is broken along the way, there is also a complete list of all the designers sharing today to get you back on track so you don't miss anything!   There are prizes at stake here y'all!!!  :)

I've got lots of photos to share, so I hope you will bear with me!  The project I made was inspired by several projects shared on Pinterest.  This is the tutorial I followed most closely.  And it is really quite easy, just really glue-y and ink-y!  But seriously, what paper crafter doesn't like to get their fingers all glue-y and ink-y?!!!

Several months ago I purchased on old dictionary at a local Goodwill store.  I love shopping at the Goodwill, because you can find all sorts of reasonably priced goodies to re-purpose!  And I knew that the dictionary would come in handy!   I tore out three pages and cut little rectangles 2 1/2 by 2.  I inked the edges on both sides of each rectangle with Vintage Photo distress ink.  I had about 30 of those little rectangles!  I rolled them into little cones and glued the edges down and put them aside.  

Then I cut a several circles with a Spellbinders die.  One from a piece of chipboard from some packaging material and two more from some Christmas designer paper I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I glued these pieces together with Mod Podge which makes a sturdy back for the ornament.  Oh and I inked those edges too and punched a hole to thread the seam binding through!

Next, I used Beacon 3-in-1 glue to glue each of those little cones around the circle backing.  After they were in place to my liking, I colored the sweet little Baby Jesus image from the new set called The Babe using copic markers.  

I cut out the image with another Spellbinders circle and cut a Lacey Circle from the designer paper for the frame around the image.  Those edges were inked as well.   I used Glossy Accents over the whole image circle and let that dry overnight.  I also put some glue on the edges of each cone and added some Martha Stewart Glitter and let that dry overnight too!

I knew I needed to give the center of the image circle a little stability to attach it to the cone circle.  I found a round center piece from a spool of ribbon.  I guess that would be the spool!  hehe!  I glued that to the back of the image piece and then glued the whole thing down to the center of the cone circle!

I am linking this to the Word Art Wednesday Blog!!!

I have a card to share also using the new Turtle Dove Ornament set!

I colored this beautiful image with copics and cut it out with a Spellbinders Circle and framed it with Spellbinders Eyelet Circle dies.  

I added some pearls, stickles on the image and a pretty little lace bow I made with Becca's Peg Bow Maker!

Ok, that is it!  We really appreciate you hopping with us today!
Your next stop on the hop is the fabulously talented, lovely and sweet CHRIS

I know you will enjoy all the projects today, 
as we all have had a blast creating with these wonderful new images!!!

God Bless You!
