Full Speed Ahead to Christmas!!!

 Hi everyone!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 
I was able to get a tone of stuff accomplished so am feeling better about things!  

I have a few more cards to share using the new sets from Our Daily Bread designs.  The one above is all in white.  I used the Christmas Door set and the Snowflake die that coordinates with the Peace and Joy set.  The background is embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I added the Spellbinders/ODBD custom die Elegant Oval for the frame and Spellbinders Lace die that I can't remember the name of and can't find it on the website!  Anyway, I added some gorgeous white ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I made the bow with my Bow Easy tool.  I added touches of Polar White Flower Soft and then sprayed the card with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.

These two are pretty much the same except for colors and ornament.  I used the new Holiday Ornaments set which coordinates with Spellbinders Holiday Tags dies.  The ribbon is dyed to match the card stock.  The backgrounds are embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig for the placement of the sentiment.  And I used a square Spellbinders die to emboss the frame.  A little bit of bling and a spritz of Glimmer Mist and that is it!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Will see you again soon!!!

Terra Cotta Christmas

Hi there!  Here is a card I made for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge to make a holiday card using an ODBD stamp and for the Midnight Madness sketch #126!  This image is a new one from Our Daily Bread designs called Christmas Tree Collage.  I stamped it with ODBD Terra Cotta ink and cut it into a square from the larger image.  I used a versa-mark pad to ink up the whole square and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I layered the square over a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die cut.  I attached this to a sheet that is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (can't remember which one at the moment!), and then to SU! Ruby Red and then the card base.  

 I added lace and ribbon that is dyed with Terra Cotta ink.  I made the bow with my Bow Easy.  And have I mentioned lately how much I love my Scotch ATG Tape Glider!!!  This is really the best adhesive I have ever used!  I found the star in some things I forgot I had and it matches perfectly!  LOL!!  I added stickles to the star and snowballs to the tree.  Thank you for looking and I'll be back again soon!!!

Rosy Red Christmas

Hi there!  A quick post to show you this card I made a few weeks ago!  I colored the rose from the Our Daily Bread set called Christmas Rose, with copics and cut it out, then glued it down to the ODBD custom die, Elegant Ovals, from Spellbinders.  The background paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and inked to highlight the embossing.  

Gotta run!  Will post again soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

Sneaking in Creating Time

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts and kind words as I transition into this next phase of my life. 
I feel so blessed to be able to spend time with you all through blog land!  If you missed out on what is going on, here is a link to the post explaining things.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you!  

I snuck in a little time this morning to make this card!  Packing up to move is not so much fun.  I may be procrastinating, I'm not sure!  LOL!!  This beautiful new ODBD set, Christmas Door,  has been calling my name for weeks now and I couldn't put it off a minute longer!  I have a black door on my house now and I wanted to color this image to match!  I colored it with copics and added Stickles for a little sparkle on the garland and wreath.  I cut out the sentiment with a Spellbinders Labels 7 die and distressed the corners.  The SU! designer paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and inked with SU! Riding Hood Red to highlight the raised areas.  I added lace and ribbon, a Bow Easy bow, and some snowballs.  Then I sprayed the whole card with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.  The card stocks are white and SU! Gray.  I followed the Dirty Dozen sketch on SCS for this month for my design!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago.  This new ODBD set, Christmas Ornaments, was created to coordinate with Spellbinders Holiday Tags dies!  I heat embossed the image in silver and colored in the design with Soft Sky ink.  The blue paper is from Archiver's and matches nicely with Soft Sky.  The embossing is done with a Sizzix folder and I used Stickles on the swirls and along the edges of the ornament.  The silver cord is tucked between the layers.  The sentiment is heat embossed too and I sprayed the whole card with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist!

Lots to Tell You!!!

Hi there!  Please forgive me for being missing in action lately.  I have had tons of things going on lately!  My sweet father in law passed away Monday, after a very long 6 weeks in the hospital.  He is now in the arms of Jesus and the pain is all gone!  In the last 6 weeks or so, we have been going back and forth from our house to my in laws house, taking turns with our daughter staying with my mother in law.  I have now retired from my job and my hubby and I will be moving in with her!  She is a blessing to me and I look forward to spending time with her and caring for her.  She has Alzheimer's and battles diabetes as well.  I know this will be a tough journey in so many ways but God will see us through!   I had made a few cards a few weeks ago in preparation for not having time to create the next few weeks.  
(I hope to sneak in a little creating time though!  LOL!) 

 This card features a gorgeous new ODBD set called Christmas Tree Collage.  After stamping with brown Memento ink, I colored in areas with copic markers.  I sponged with Antique Linen ink, added Stickles for a little sparkle and then sprayed it with Suede Glimmer Mist.  I added lace and then seam binding that I dyed with Suede Glimmer Mist.  The bow was made with my Bow Easy and I added a pretty matching blue button and silver cording.  The card stocks are White, Creamy Caramel and one of the SU! blues, not sure which one.  The Creamy Caramel layer is distressed along the edges too!

Thanks so much for visiting with me!  I will be back as soon as I can!

Here are my card details:

I have used the gorgeous new Christmas Rose set!  While searching for color inspiration for my rose, I found one in a beautiful white.  I really wanted to get a more white shade but I am afraid it turned a little more yellow than I intended!  I am going with Antique White!  LOL!!!  I used copic markers to color the image and the background.  I cut out the Spellbinders Oval and then the Spellbinders Lacey Oval for a frame.  This is layered over a piece of Memory Box designer paper that is embossed with the Cuttlebug folder from the Preserves collection.  I inked up the embossing with distress ink.  I added SU! seam binding, the little sparkly snowballs and the Christmas Rose Spellbinders Tag.  I made the bow with my Bow Easy and I sprayed the whole card with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.  I used white and Kraft card stocks.  
That completes my card!  Thank you so much for spending time with us today!
