Christmas Cardinals and a Christmas Chickadee

Hello there!  It's Thanksgiving week here in my neck of the woods!  Yay!

Today I am sharing three cards I have made recently, using the new Winter Cardinal and Winter Chickadee sets from Our Daily Bread Designs.  My friend's mother passed away recently.  Her family loves cardinals and even though this is a Christmas-y stamp, I think it works fine for a sympathy card at this time of year.  I colored the image with copics and used a Pierced Circle to cut it out.  The frame is made with Pierced Rectangles. The background is embossed with the Lattice Background.  The word 'with' and the word sympathy die are part of the stamp/die duo called With Sympathy.  I added the bow from the Ice Skate die die set to complete the card.

Here is my next card with the Winter Cardinal:

This card, has lots of layers, yet it is still somewhat clean and simple.  I colored the image with copics to match the paper from the Christmas Collection 2017 and then cut it out with a Pierced Circle.  I also used Pierced Squares and Pierced Rectangles.  I used a matching copic marker to dye the seam binding to match!

And here is my third card:

This card features the Winter Chickadee set.  Again, I colored with copics and used a Pierced Circle to cut it out.  A smaller Pierced Circle was used for the sentiment.  The papers are from the Christmas Collection 2017 and is cut out with a Pierced Rectangle.  Then I added a Bitty Border. This ribbon is dyed with a copic marker also.

And that's it!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Looking Back at the ODBD November Release!

Good morning!

Today we are taking a look back at the Our Daily Bread Designs November Release!  

My first card features the Snowman Family set!  I colored the image with copics and cut it out with a Double Stitched Rounded Rectangle die.  I have added Snow Crystals and a Doily as well as a Beautiful Border.  The bottom panel is a piece of paper from the Snowflake Season Collection and is cut with a Pierced Rectangle.  

Here is my second card:

All dies, no stamps for this one!  I used the following dies:  Welcoming Door, Christmas Door Greenery, Curvy Slopes, Trees and Deer, Rectangles and the Fence.  The background designer paper is from the Christmas Collection 2014.  Each of the colored die cuts were tapped onto and dragged through ink pads to get the splotchy coloring I was going for.  The 'house' panel behind the door was cut with a Rectangles die and then I used my Scor-Buddy to create the bricks.

Christmas Blessings

Good morning!

This card is for today's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast!  
The Inspiration focuses on the Balsam Hill website.
I chose to use the Snow Globes found HERE.

This beautiful cardinal and the sentiment are from the new ODBD set called Winter Cardinal.  I colored the cardinal with copics and cut out with the ODBD Snow Globe die.  the sentiment is cut out with a Pierced Oval.  The papers are from the Christmas Collection 2017 Paper Pad.  I used the Medium Bow die to create the bow at the bottom.  I did the shaped card with Rounded Rectangles and then the main panel is cut out with a Double Stitched Rounded Rectangle.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful Saturday!

SC670, Merry Christmas

I made this for the Sketch Challenge today at SCS!  

I used the inner Snowflake Sky die to emboss and then cut that piece into three rectangles.  Then I cut one of the Curvy Slopes, cut it into three rectangles and glued them onto the snowflake rectangles.  Then cut out the Trees and Deer to add to the scene.  The bottom layer is stamped with Merry Christmas from the Card Greetings set.  I added pearls and white ribbon and then added shimmer to the scene with clear Wink of Stella.

Thanks so much for looking!
Have a wonderful day!

CAS 454, Peace on Earth

Good morning!

The CAS454 challenge at SCS today is Into the Forest.  My card has several layers but I still think it qualifies as CAS.  Especially for me! haha!  I could not resist using the new Trees and Deer and Curvy Slopes dies from Our Daily Bread Designs!  The background was done by flicking masking fluid onto the card stock and then air brushing with a blue copic marker.  After removing the masking fluid spots it looks like snow falling!  I made a frame for my winter scene with a Double Stitched Rounded Rectangle.  The sentiment is from Winter Chickadee and is cut out with an Ornate Oval die.  I added touches of sparkle with Wink of Stella.  The bow is cut from a piece of red in the Christmas Collection 2017 paper pad with the bow die from Circle Ornaments.  

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

I just love this sweet little Winter Chickadee!  I stamped him and colored him with copics in coordinating colors to match the pretty Christmas Collection 2017 designer paper.  I used a Pierced Circle to cut the bird out and popped it up over a panel cut with a Pierced Rectangle.  I added a Beautiful Border and some Snow Crystals too.  The pearls and the seam binding were dyed with a copic marker to match!
