Hello Sunshine!

 Hello there!  Hope you are having a great day!  
I have a couple of cards to share today using some
 of the new ODBD June Releases!

The  card above is clean and simple but with several layers.  I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.  The bottom layer is cut with one of the dies from ODBD Flourished Star Pattern.  The middle rectangle layer is a Spellbinders A2 die. I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Sunshine set to this smaller rectangle and popped it up with foam tape.  The little sun is part of the ODBD Sunburst Background die.  And I added some clouds from the ODBD Clouds and Raindrops die set.  The tiny yellow bow completes the card!

This card was heavily influenced by a card that my DT sis, Julie, shared recently.  Both the sun image and the sentiment are from Sunshine Blessings.  The lacy die cut frame is an ODBD Layered Lacy Squares die.  
Another quick and easy card!

Both cards are for the ODBDSLC244 and for WAW189!

Here are the ODBD products I used today:

My first card features Floral Sentiments 8.  I used copic markers to color the image.  I cut it out with ODBD Vintage Label Die and popped it up over a panel from the ODBD Patriotic Paper Collection.  The white layer is cut with ODBD Flourished Star Pattern die. And under that is a panel from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013!  The sentiment is cut with and ODBD Pennants die.  I added some tulle and a pretty seam binding bow.

Here is my second card:

I colored the image from Floral Sentiments 7 with copic markers in sepia tones.  And then I went over it with and olive green and a pale blue for a tinted look like you sometimes see in old photos!  I also used the ODBD Vintage Label die and the ODBD Flourished Star Pattern die again.  I added the tiny little bow and then stickles to the flowers!

Two More Cards with May NCC Stamps!

 Hi there!  
I have a couple of more cards I made with the great new masculine sets from North Coast Creations!  This first card features the Deer Silhouette set!  I did the reflection technique with the tree in the set.  I also used the ODBD Layered Lacy Squares die.

The Sail Away set is a fun one!  Especially with the ODBD Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection!  I did the Cracked Glass technique on this one!

Here are the new sets:

Thank so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Sunday!

Looking Back at the ODBD June Releases!

Today, we are taking a look back at the June releases from ODBD!  

I focused on the Hello Sunshine stamp set and the Sunburst Background die.  I cut the scripture out with a Vintage Flourish Pattern die.  I layered this over a panel cut and embossed with the Cathedral Window die.  I tucked in some pieces of tulle behind this layer over the sunburst.  Then I added some Fancy Foliage and some flowers and leaves cut with the Birds and Nest dies.  The sunburst, the scripture panel and the flowers and leaves and foliage are all colored with Pan Pastels! 

Here is another card:

For this card, I used Hello Sunshine again.  I masked off the Hello portion of the sentiment and cut it out with a Mini Tag die.  I stamped the fun face and cut it out with the circle from Recipe Card and Tags dies.  I cut and embossed the Sunburst Background die but this time I trimmed parts of it out, layering it over a sheet from the Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection. I framed it with a Spellbinders A2 frame to hide the edges of the sunburst.  I also cut out strips of the same paper to apply to the sun rays.  I added clouds from the Clouds and Raindrops dies and a pretty little bow to complete the card!  I almost forgot to mention that I put a little foam tape under the sunburst to pop it up a little from the paper underneath.

Here are all the ODBD supplies I used:

A Sparkly Wedding Program-DIY

 Hello! Hope you are having a great day!

I designed a very simple DIY wedding program to share with you today using gorgeous papers from Paper and More!  I used MS Word to create the program.  I started by adding three text boxes into a landscape orientation to get the most from one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Solid Bright White Card Stock #80.  I typed in all of the information into the first box and played with different fonts to get the look I wanted.  Then I just copied and pasted it into the other two text boxes.  It looks something like this in your word program:

 I didn't measure the text boxes.  I just eye-balled it and got it close enough.  It would be quite easy to print lots of these for your wedding.  

I cut out one to use for my project today, leaving a tiny border all the way around.  I adhered this layer to a layer of Rose Pink Metallic Paper #81 which was cut a little bit larger than the printed program.  And then this was adhered to a layer of Glitter Card Stock Silver!  I love that glitter paper!  

 Another look:

 Well, that is it!  Thanks so much for visiting with me today!

I decided to try to do a feminine card with the traditional masculine tools!  Girls like tools, right?!  I am in love with the new Pegboard and Hooks dies!  I used the ODBD Layered Lacy Square along with Spellbinders Squares to frame the pegboard.  I cut out the the Workshop Tools and gave the tools pink handles!  I added a little cross from the Mini Tag Dies.  The background paper is from the Shabby Rose Paper Collection.  Two Beautiful Borders are behind the squares.  I stamped the XOXO from World's Greatest and cut it out with another Mini Tag die.  I sponged ink on the tools and on the designer paper to give it a shabby look!
Here is my second card:
This time I used the fun new Father's Day Tools stamp!  I colored it with copics and cut it out with a Spellbinders A2 die.  I layered it over the Pegboard die cut.  And this is layered over the cool new Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection.  I added a cool orange bow to complete the card!
