Sneak Peek, Midnight Madness, and A Big Announcement!

You all are going to love the new sets being released on July 1st by Our Daily Bread designs! Gorgeous I tell ya! This sneak peek focuses on the Amazing Grace collection! For my card today, I used the Midnight Madness sketch for this week. The base card is Old Olive. Then, I used a Spellbinder Square Nestabilities die to emboss my frame in the center of the white layer. I masked off the center of the square with sticky notes, so that I could create the 'designer paper'. To create the 'designer paper', I stamped the Hymn and the dogwood flowers in black. Then I sponged three colors of ink trying to use mostly pink. Then, I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist Pearl! I removed the mask, cut slits with my ex-acto knife to attach some pink organdy from my ever-growing stash and added the cuttlebug die cut vines over the ribbon. Then, I stamped, sponged, cut and glimmered the flowers. Whew! That took forever! I attached extra flowers to give dimension and then added brown flower soft to the flower centers! I used an Ornare piercing template to pierce the border of the card! I love, love, love this collection of stamps! Within the next few days, I'll be posting another sneak peek using one or both of the new releases, so stay tuned!

I am thrilled, honored, and so excited to announce that I have been asked to stay on with Our Daily Bread designs as a member of their Design Team for the next 6 months!!!!! The last few months as a guest designer for this wonderful company have been such a blessing to me! Kelley, the owner, and all the other ladies on the team, have become such dear friends! Three other ladies are joining me in this great journey. They are......





WOW! I have to pinch myself all the time! I told someone not too long ago, that I am in awe to be working with all of these famous stampers! I am just tickled to death!
