TLC and CAS and NCC! Got it? :)

Good morning!  
I played a little bit yesterday with one of my new stamps from North Coast Creations!  It's called Floral Sentiments and has this beautiful flower stamp in it along with some great sentiments. I wanted to try my hand at the TLC for this week to watercolor on Kraft card stock in and image that has been heat embossed in white.  Got it!  The CAS challenge this week was to use scallops.  Got it!  And I tried to follow the Color Challenge but that didn't really happen.  My colors ended up too dark.  I added a pretty bow and a flower center made with some goodies that my sweet friend sent to me!  Sparkly!

Here is the NCC stamp set:

Hope y'all have a wonderful Wednesday!  See ya again soon!

A Look Back at the ODBD January Release

 Good morning!  
Today we are looking back at the fabulous new releases from Our Daily Bread designs this month!  

I am absolutely loving the Apothecary Bottles set and the coordinating ODBD Custom Apothecary Bottles dies!  I decided to go a little shabby chic for this card.  The background papers are distressed with paint and actually have a canvas feel!  I used a Cherry Lynn Doily behind the bottle.  I cut out the image from the Lavender set with the ODBD Custom Antique Labels and Borders die.  I added a little copic color to the lavender image and on the bottle.  The little corner die cut is from the ODBD Custom Ornate Borders and Flowers dies.  I finished the card with a few pearls and several splashes of Glimmer Mist!

Here are the ODBD products I used today:

Welcome to the North Coast Creations January Releases!

 Welcome to the North Coast Creations January New Releases!  
 We thank you for joining nus today!

We will be choosing 2 winners who will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store for stamps just for commenting on our Design Team cards! You have until January 17, 2014 at 10:00PM EST to leave a comment on each of our designers blog posts.  Our 2 random winners will be announced on the North Coast Creations Blog on January 18, 2014, please be sure to check back there to see if you have won.

My first card features Floral Sentiments 3.  I colored the image with copic markers and cut it out with a Spellbinders Circle. I masked part of the sentiment and only stamped the one word with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I framed the image circle with Spellbinders Adorning Squares.  I added lots of foliage cut with the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage dies.  I also added clear rhinestones on the foliage and stickles on the image for sparkle.

Here is my second card:

I am always in need of Thinking of You cards so this set is a great addition to your collection.  The set is called Floral Sentiments 2.  I stamped the image three times and colored with copics.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the sentiment straight.  The image square is layered over a Spellbinders Lacey Square. A quick and easy card!

Here are the new sets I used today:

Proverbs 27:9 and an Exclusive Recipe Re-Take

Happy Friday!  It's the 10th already!  Can you believe it?!!

Well, I had a chance to play today!  This one is CAS with several layers.  The card stock is Neenah Cream.  I stamped the lovely new Lavender image from ODBD and colored it with copic markers.  I used the ODBD Custom Antique Labels and Borders dies to cut it out and layered this over the Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight die cut.  I added some pearls, a pretty bow and some stickles to complete the card!

Here are the ODBD supplies I used:

 And I just had to take another photo of the card I blogged the other day.  I left my camera at my Mom's and used my iPhone to take the photo.  Now I am borrowing my daughter's camera until I get mine back!  So here is a better photo! 

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

Bottle of Prayers

Hey there! 

Last week I spent a few days with my Mom.  
We had a great time and I can't wait to go back!  But I left my camera!  
Oh no!!!  Believe it or not this photo was taken with my phone!  Not too bad!
I spent all weekend packing up Christmas decorations and now they are all put away 
so had a little creative time today!  Yay!  

The new Apothecary Bottles and Joy in a Jar sets are so beautiful!  I am enjoying playing with them!  I cut out the bottles from designer paper with the new Custom Apothecary Bottles dies.  I used copic markers to add the vintage shading to the bottles and the background layer too. You can't see it in the photo but I 'painted' stickles over the whole thing.  Sort of a dry brush technique. I used the Custom Antique Labels and Borders dies to emboss one of the bottles and to cut out the label for the other. 

Here are the ODBD supplies I used: 

I am entering this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #113.

Thanks for stopping by!  Stay warm!

My first card features the new Lavender set.  I used several Spellbinders dies to create the base card and backgrounds all in white. The Lavender image was colored with copics and cut out with the Custom Antique Labels and Borders Dies. The twine I used for the bow was dyed with a copic marker to match the lavender.

This card features the Apothecary Bottles set and Joy in a Jar set along with the new Apothecary Bottles Dies and the coordinating Custom Antique Labels and Borders Dies.  The bottle is stamped and cut from vellum and I used a combination of copics markers and TH Vintage Photo ink to color up the back side.  I then layered it over a die cut from vanilla card stock. 

Here are the ODBD supplies I used for my cards today:

And that is it!  Thank you again for stopping by!
