Warm Greetings!

Christmas Day is almost here and I have been busy, busy, busy!
 My card today features the fun new Stamp/Die Duo from Our Daily Bread Designs called White as Snow.  I love coloring snowmen!  And I had fun trying to match copic markers to both of the ODBD paper collections shown here: Holly Jolly and Christmas 2017.  I cut the background out with a Pierced Rectangle and then the oval is the largest of the Oval Stitched Rows dies.  I cut the sentiment out with the Layering Hearts dies. I added Snow Crystals with rhinestone centers and a tiny bow to the hearts to complete the card.

I am sharing this in two challenges at Splitcoast:

Looking Back at the ODBD December Release

Good morning!

Today, the ODBD team is taking a look back at the December Release!  I decided to do a gift bag with a matching gift card.  I used the Poinsettia Inset to cut out the front of the bag.  I did the direct to paper technique on the raised areas of the embossed panel and then glued it to the front of the bag. I created the gift bag with the new Card Caddy and Gift Bag dies and the Gift Bag Handles and Topper dies.  

Then I cut out several of the Peaceful Poinsettias, did the direct to paper again and glued all the pieces of the flower together.  I attached one poinsettia to the gift bag and the other onto the front of the 3x3 gift card with two of the Layered Lacey Squares adhered to the front.

 I made a tag with Ovals and Oval Stitched Rows.  The sentiment is from the new set Stamp/Die Duo White as Snow

Here is a card I made recently, that I have not shared yet:

This card is made with several new releases.  The Noel Ornaments image is colored with copics and cut out with an Oval Stitched Rows die.  The oval is popped up over a panel I made with the Poinsettia Inset and a Pierced Rectangle.  I was trying to do a technique with watercolor and the die as a stencil.  It really didn't work very well (failed) but I saved it because I liked the color.  You can slightly see some parts of the poinsettia though.  haha!  Well, maybe not, but I promise it's there!  I used the scalloped die from the new Gift Bag Handles and Topper dies as a border across the card and added a pretty gold bow to complete the card!

Sending Warm Greetings

Good morning!

I have another Christmas card made with a new set from Our Daily Bread Designs!  This adorable White as Snow is so much fun to color!  And there is a coordinating die to cut the snowman out!  Love that!  I colored the image with copics and then cut it out.  I used the Curvy Slopes dies to cut out the snow hills.  I cut out the Lattice Background and used it as a stencil to get the 'blue sky' background on the panel cut out with a Snowflake Sky die.  I added Snow Crystals and then I cut out a piece with the Grass Lawn die to create the icicles!  I added clear Wink of Stella here and there for the winter sparkle!

Thanks for looking!  Have a wonderful week!

Welcome to the ODBD December Release Blog Hop!

Good morning!

 I am your first stop for the hop today!  We are so happy to have you with us!
As always, you have a chance to win!  

Here's how:

Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 Gift Code to the ODBD Website  just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until December 2, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on December 3rd so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

My first project features the new Card Caddy and Gift Bag dies and the Gift Bag Handles and Topper dies along with the Holly Leaves stamp set.  Oh and there is a new Double Stitched Oval on there too!  I created the bag first without the insert but used the insert on a separate piece of card stock to attach to the front and another to the back of the bag.  This makes it a more solid, sturdy bag to hold a collection of cards. I stamped the image and colored it with copics.  I fussy cut the image to place on the oval and added several Snow Crystals

I created four coordinating cards to go inside:

All four cards are alike except each has a different patterned paper from the Snowflake Season Paper Collection.  The patterned paper panels are cut with a Pierced Rectangle.  On the cards and the bag are tiny little white bows, clear rhinestones 
and touches of Wink of Stella.

Here is my second project:

This card features the Noel Ornaments stamp.  I colored it with copics to match the Holly Jolly Paper.  I also dyed the seam binding with a copic to match.  The panels are cut with a Pierced Rectangle, Snowflake Sky and Pierced Squares.  I added the Noel Border cutting off all but the NOEL.  Wink of Stella here and there completes the card.
