Happy Little Daisy


Hello there!  Hope you are having a great week!

Here is one for the Color Challenge at Split Coast this week.  These are not the exact colors listed but thank goodness they are only a guideline since I don't own those colors and these colors are fairly close!  I colored the happy little daisy from the ODBD Stamp/Die Duo set called Call to Me with copics and cut it out with the coordinating die. The pretty solid pastel green paper is from the new Romantic Roses Paper Collection and is cut with the Center Step A2 Layers and the base card is cut with the Center Step A2 Card die.  I also used Fence, Bitty Borders, Leaves and Branches, Oval Stitched Rows, and Vintage Borders.  I added some pearls and pretty seam binding to complete the card.  

Thanks so much for looking!

Just a Note


Happy Wednesday y'all!

Today I have a card for the Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast!  And I have to say, these little roses are so fun to color!  They are in the new ODBD Stamp/Die Duo called His Love Endures.  They are colored with copics to match the gorgeous new Romantic Roses Paper Collection.  I also used Pierced Rectangles and Filigree Frames.

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

You Make Me Happy


Hello!

Hope you are doing great this first week of 2018!  I have a card to share featuring pretty new daisies from Our Daily Bread Designs!  I used today's Sketch Challenge #678 at Split Coast for my design for this card.  This new stamp set is a Stamp/Die Duo and is called Call to Me.  I colored the daisies to match the new Romantic Roses  designer paper pack (although it is hard to tell in the photo) and cut them out with the coordinating die.  The daisies are popped up over a strip of the paper which is over another panel cut with the Daisy Chain Background die with the Deco Border across the bottom. A sweet and simple CAS card! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your day!

Welcome to the ODBD January 2018 New Release Blog Hop!


Good morning!

We are so happy you are with us today as we share projects made with the 
January 2018 New Releases from Our Daily Bread Designs!  The beautiful sets this month were designed by our very own Diana Nguyen!  Before we get started, let's get the particulars out of the way. We are changing things up a bit as blog traffic patterns have changed dramatically in recent years.  Beginning this month, all giveaways will be done through Social Media, so be sure to follow ODBD on Facebook and Instagram! You can find all of the information at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog.

Here is my first card again:


I did a Center Step Card using the new Center Step A2 Card Die and the Center Step Card A2 Layers.  The gorgeous roses and the scripture are part of the new Stamp/Die Duo called His Love Endures, colored with copics and cut out with the matching dies. The gorgeous papers are from the new Romantic Roses Collection.  I used Oval Stitched Rows for the scripture focal point with a mat made with the largest of the Layered Lacey Ovals dies.  I threaded matching ribbon through the oval and added the little bow on top.  The roses are tucked here and there and through the Fence on the front panel.

Here is my second project:


This one is very CAS!  The sweet little hydrangea from the new Stamp/Die Duo called In My Heart is colored with copics and cut out with the matching die.  I made a little frame with an Oval Stitched Rows die (the stitched part doesn't show), the largest Snowflake Sky die, and a Layered Lacey Oval die.  I tucked in a pretty solid colored pieces of the new Romantic Roses Paper behind the hydrangea.  Sweet and simple friendship card!

Don't forget to check out the inspiration at the ODBD Blog 
and then make sure you head over to the 
ODBD Facebook and Instagram pages for the giveaways!  

Thank you for all of your sweet comments and encouragement this last year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
I hope you all have a blessed 2018!

Warm Greetings!


Hello!
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:

Thank you so much for looking!  And have a very Merry Christmas!!!

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!
