Serenity Window


Hello again!  Hope you are having a great Wednesday!  

Here is another card I made using the new ODBD/Spellbinders Cathedral Window Die and The Waves on the Sea! The base card and yellow background was made with Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles.  I cut out the Cathedral window and then trimmed off part of it to make a narrower window.  This is popped up with foam tape.  I cut out four Cheery Lynn Designs Olive Branches and glued them down.  Then I punched out several Martha Stewart Hydrangea flowers and attached them.  I added pearls to their centers.  I cut the sentiment out with the little tag from the ODBD/Spellbinders Recipe Card and Tags Dies and attached it amongst the leaves and then added a little white bow that I made with Becca's Peg Bow maker!  

I am entering this card into two challenges:

I am always inspired by Kittie747's beautiful cards and I made this card with her in mind!

Here are the ODBD supplies I used for my card:

So happy you stopped by!  Have a great week!

Hi everyone!  Here is a quick card that I made with the new The Waves on the Sea set from Our Daily Bread designs.  It is made much like the one I shared a couple of weeks ago.  I painted a panel of white card stock with blue paint in a white wash fashion.  I stamped the image and sentiment and then cut it into three panels to pop up on the card base!  So easy and great for those men in your life!  

Here is the stamp set with link that I used:

Also, ODBD is retiring some sets and they are on sale!  Check it out!


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful evening!

On the Sea

  Hey y'all!
Hope you are having a great day!  It's beautiful here today but we are expecting storms this evening.  Nothing like what happened in Oklahoma though!  I feel so awful for all who were in the path of that massive tornado.  Please remember to keep them in your prayers.

I have a card to share for the ODBDSLC155 challenge-Sky or Water

and for the SCS Fan Club central theme of 'Vacation'.

Remember when brads were the newest hottest thing to hit the paper crafting world???  And now I rarely use them and still have tons!  They really work so well for masculine cards!  I stamped this new ODBD image from The Waves on the Sea onto designer paper and cut it out with the ODBD/Spellbinders Elegant Oval.  I sponged the edges and used a copic multiliner to outline some of the image to highlight the detail.  I stamped the Fishing Net Background onto coordinating paper for the base.  The banner is made with the border die from the ODBD/Spellbinders Cathedral Window and Border Die set

Here are the ODBD supplies I used:

That's it!  Hope your day is blessed!  See you again soon!

Our 2 random winners will be announced on the NCC blog on May 18, 2013.
Here is the list with links to each designer participating today:

Now on to my first card:

I colored the image with copics and used Glossy Accents and Stickles to create the shiny 'popsicle' look!  I used Spellbinders dies to create the frames and added a little blue bow to the popsicle stick!

And here is my second card!  This time I used What's the Scoop?.  

And I did the same 'popsicle' treatment as I did on the first card.  I used some old SU! designer paper, paper piecing the ice cream.  I am determined to make a dent in my paper supply before I buy any more!!!  LOL!!  Famous last words! 

That's it!  Thanks for hopping with us today!

Mix-Ability Challenge 15

Hey y'all!  I have two cards to share that I made for the Mix-Ability Challenge on SCS!  This first one is made with a scrap of old SU! paper that is adhered to card stock with Mod Podge.  I cut out the Spellbinders Dress Forms and Mod-Podged them into place over the  background.  I added a little paint, and sponged ink and did a little doodling too.  The banner is cut from the ODBD/Spellbinders Cathedral Window and Borders Die and the sentiment is from the ODBD set called Little Girls. I finished the card with black rhinestones!

Here is my second card:

For this one I tore strips of designer papers and mod-podged them down to card stock.  I globbed some brown paint here and there.  Then I used a die cut from the ODBD/Spellbinders Cathedral Windows and Borders to create a mask.  I held the mask down and dabbed white paint with my finger.  Then I mod-podged an unused Cheery Lynn Flourish and an unused Spellbinders Itty Bitty Blossom.  I stamped the ODBD Fishing Net Background here and there too.  Next I stamped the fishing boat and the sentiment from the set called The Waves on the Sea, cut them out and mod-podged them down too!  A few more little globs of paint finished it off!

Here are the ODBD supplies I used for these projects:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  See you again soon!

Hawg Rider

Good morning!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 
 And for all you moms out there, hope you were spoiled rotten! 

Here is a card I made using the new North Coast Creations set called King of the Road!  I stamped the motorcycle with versamark and heat embossed it in silver.  The silver card stock is embossed with a cuttlebug folder.  The sentiment is encased in some hardware and I added Glossy Accents over it to make a nice embellishment!  A quick and easy masculine card!!!

Here is a pic of the set:

So glad you stopped in to take a look!
Be sure to visit the NCC Blog on Wednesday the 15th to see the May releases!!  
You're gonna love 'em!

Friendship Rose

Hello there!  I played along in the Technique Lovers Challenge at SCS this morning!  The challenge is to surprise one of the TLC hostesses, Joan Ervin, by either making a card using one of the techniques she has presented or to case one of her cards!  How fun!  Happy birthday Joan!  
I chose this card to case.

I used a new set from North Coast Creations, called Roses!  I stamped the image and the sentiment in blue.  I inked up some card stock and punched out the butterfly so it would be a perfect match!  I created a frame by embossing with a Spellbinders Rectangle.  I added a pearl to complete the card!

Here is the new NCC set:

Thanks for coming by!  Have a wonderful day!

Fishers of Men

Good morning! 
I have a card to share that I made using the new ODBD set called The Waves on the Sea!  I wanted the card to have a CAS nautical feel.  I sort of dry brushed a piece of card stock with blue acrylic paint and after it dried I stamped the image.  I cut down the panel to a rectangle and rounded the corners. I also painted a chipboard embellishment with white and blue paints.  The button I used was VERY gold, so to tone it down I painted it white and rubbed off some of the paint with my fingers.  To give the card just a little extra, I embossed the border from the ODBD/Spellbinders Antique Labels and Border dies

I am entering this card into three challenges:

CT0413-Hope Floats (SCS Fan Club Challenge)

Here are the ODBD supplies I used:

 Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your weekend!

Welcome to the ODBD May Release Day Blog Hop!

Good morning!  
Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs May Release Blog Hop! 
We are so excited to have you with us today!  You are gonna love this month's release!

If you arrived here from the sweet and talented Cathy, then you are in the right place!  If not you may want to start at the ODBD Blog, so you won't miss anything! 

Here are the particulars:

The hop will run from May 1st 8:00am to May 2nd 8:00pm EDT.
Winners will be announced May 3rd.
There are THREE PRIZES of $20, $30 and $40 gift certificates for STAMPS in the ODBD Store. 
The gift certificates must be redeemed within the month of May!
 To qualify to win all you have to do is hop to each designer's blog, leave a comment, and return to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop, and if you had any difficulties along the way! 

Now onto my card:

I used the fabulous Cathedral Window-Marble for the front of my card.  I colored the glass with copics and then clear embossed the entire window.  I used the ODBD/Spellbinders Cathedral Window and Border die to cut the window out.  The background was made with the Vintage Border Embossing plate that is now retired.  Notice the hardware along the side of the window...

 So when you open the window, you see out onto the ocean scene!  This is The Waves on the Sea set!  I stamped the scripture on the inside of the window.  I trimmed a piece of card stock to the size of the window to secure all the front window pieces.  I made a little hinge and used Scor-Tape to adhere it.  In fact I used lots of Scor-Tape on this card to be sure the window would stay in place!  The ocean scene is embossed in black and sponged, using a circle for a mask to create the moon.  

After putting everything together, I thought to myself that the front of the card was a little plain and didn't highlight the beautiful cathedral window.  So I added the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and a few flowers and pearls.  Once I had that all glued down good, I realized...there probably aren't too many cathedrals with vines and flowers growing up the walls on the inside of the building!!!
Oh well, it is what it is!!!

Here is what's on the back of my card!
The new ODBD Logo Handmade by stamp with the lighthouse from the very first ODBD stamp set, Light of the World!
 Love it!

Here are all the ODBD supplies I used:
