Negative and Positive

Hi stampers! While I was looking at challenges last week at Splitcoaststampers, I found this interesting idea! Sooooo.....I gave it a a shot and had a lot of fun! The result was this masculine birthday card. I used the new Happy Birthday Die from Our Daily Bread Designs and highlighted using a white gel pen. I used three balloon die cuts and scored them down the center and folded. I glued them together and did this three times  to give this card some dimension. The great thing about it is that it folds flat for mailing! I purchased an 11 x 14 inch pad of 96#Bristol paper so that I can easily get two 5 x 7 cards out of one sheet. I used a new spellbinder edge die to cut the bottom and added two bows and some champange colored pearl bling. That skinny strip across the top was scrap and I decided not to waste it!

Materials List

Dies- ODBD Happy Birthday, Spellbinders Borderabilities A2 scalloped borders two
Misc.- Ribbon, pearl bling, twine

I'm using this for the splitcoast challenge TLC521~Negative & Positive~{2-16-15}

Please do not post on Flicker as many of us do not have the ability to comment on your cards nor can we spotlight your cards on the blog.”
For this project I chose a nice aqua paper and heat embossed the doily stamp with white embossing powder. I just added the pattern in a random fashion on the card stock. I added the lace and the ribbon. Then I pulled out the ODBD Aster Dies. I cut three of the large flowers, three of the medium flowers and two of the small flowers. Taking my scissors, I used one blade to curl the petals by gently pulling the blade against the petals. Just like you would do if curling ribbon with scissors. I glued the layers together starting with the largest and working my way to the center. Each layer was added by offsetting the layers of petals each time. I added a large piece of bling to the center, added it to the card I mounted the front to the white card base. I took the ODBD Ornate Border Sentiments stamp set and stamped a greeting. I cut it out using the ODBD Mini Tag Dies and sponged the edge of the sentiment. Next came the bow and placing the sentiment on the card. I hope you like it! It's so simple!!!

Head on over and see what the other breadsticks have created for you! You won't be disappointed!

 I have several cards for today's ODBD Shining the Light Challenge 226!!! I have used a new stamp set called life is a gift.

Look close because I don't make A2 size cards often or cards which can easily be mailed with a single postage stamp! I have been trying to make at least one "regular card" a month for those of you who don't make the chunky cards.
These were so easy to make with a bit of sponging that anyone can duplicate these!

Today we have a color challenge and were required to use at least three colors from this grouping.
197487056
I chose the peachy tones and green. My green is a bit different because I went searching for a designer paper to use and I kept coming back to this one. It was calling my name for this project so I just had to use it!!!
This card is big!!!  I think it's the largest card that I have ever made and it's a whopping 5.5 x 8.5 inches! I have extra envelopes left over from my daughter's graduation and thought I should try and use some of them up. You already know that I love to make 5x7 inch cards because of all of the real estate. Now I just might be hooked on this larger size!!!
This is what I used to make this project:
ODBD Dies Used:  Beautiful Borders Dies, Decorative Corners Dies, Antique Labels and Borders Dies, Canning Jars Dies, Mini Tag Dies
Spectrum Noir Markers- Blender, BT1, BT3, CT1, GB1, GB4, FS1, FS4, LG1, LG3, LY1, LY2, CR2, CR3.
Ink- Memento Tux Black, Memento London Fog, Su! Certainly Celery, Distress Victorian Velvet.
Card Stock- Su! Certainly Celery, Textured Peach
Misc.- Ribbon, Brad, Half back pearls, Bakers' Twine

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you play along!

Dancing Music

 I played along with the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge525 today! When I first saw the sketch I thought ho hum and once I started creating, I loved the way it turned out. It's simple but eye catching. Here is the sketch.

I'm really lovin' the new ODBD Faithful Fish Die and I used it here as an organic element with the bird! I used white detailed embossing powder on the main image and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tux Black. The eye of the bird was dotted with a fine tip black sharpie marker.

Stamps used- ODBD Music Speaks
Ink- Versamark watermark
Misc.- 3/8 inch white organza ribbon, pearl and lace trim, pearl bling, dimensional foam

Thanks for stopping by!
