I decided to decorate a wooden box for my craft room and this is the result. I didn't add a lot of embellishments because this ODBD Soulful Stitches Paper Collection is too pretty to cover up!  On the front I used the Elizabeth Stamp, Spool and Tape Stamp, a few flowers, a buttom and some bling.

On the end I used the Victoria Stamp a pink vellum die cut Doily with the new die and a bit of bling.
On the lid of the box I kept it very simple. I added two buttons, four flowers, bling swirls and a homemade stick pin. Around the edge of the lid I used two different trims. The rose trim is vintage from my husband's grandmother.

This second project is a simple card using the Soulful Stitches paper, Quilts stamp set and the ODBD Doily die. I cut the doily out of pale pink vellum and added a few pearls. Then I colored the quilt image with alcohol markers and layered it with rose paper. Beneath that, I added green corrugated card. Next came the gray pearls along the bottom and the sentiment.

ODBD September Sneak Peek

I just finished today's challenge FS395 over on Splitcoaststampers and decided to use someof the new stamps that are being released from Our Daily Bread Designs. This little dress and the sentiments are just a sneak peek of what's in store for tomorrow's September release. For the challenge at hand, I took my cue from this Raindrops on Roses card by Kathy.  As you can see I did change more than two things on my project. The biggest changes are the colors, using the left instead of the right side for the tickets and placing something in the window. 
Join me tomorrow for the spectacular new release from Our Daily Bread Designs!
I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!

Shorebirds Swing Card

 Hey everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend! I have another card to share with you using SweetStamps stamps. This week, challenge 184-Masculine Birthday has me heading for nature and the beach! I decided to create a swing card for a little something different. Directions on how to create this type of card can be found here on Splitcoaststampers.
For the central image, I used Sweetstamps Shorebirds 3011 on glossy card stock. I think this is the best way to get a beautiful sky with minimal effort and it turns out different every time! I used a spellbinders die to cut out the image and I left the image in the die while I cut out the image with a utility knife going along the inside of the die with my knife. This made the image a bit smaller so that there would be a card stock border for an added detail.

On the inside, I used SweetStamps Special Day 9114 sentiment on the left side with the same die set and created a place to write a personal note on the right. It's a straight forward and fairly simple card so I'll just leave you with a materials list and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
I would like to thank SweetStamps for inviting me to be a guest designer this month! I had a blast creating challenge cards using some of their stamps and products. If you would like to read my blog post over at SweetStamps for this card, click here.

Flip Flop Flower Card

I have a fun and whimsical card today that should bring a smile and brighten someone's day! I'll have to add a roll of Lifesaver candies when I give the card! 
 I have been kicking around this flip flop flower idea in my head for a few weeks and thought is was an original idea until Grace mentioned that she had seen the idea on Pinterest. Oh well! I made this card for the SCS Free 4 All Challenge  F4A235. 
I used a lot of Our Daily Bread Designs product on this and you can click the links in the materials list to find these items. I began by constructing my flower first. I took the left flip flop from the ODBD Walk With Jesus Stamp set and stamped it on white card stock with pink ink eleven times. Then I cut them out using the small die from the flip flop die set. I sponged the toe of the flip flop, used a stylus on the toe to add dimension, added bling to each one and glued them together. While I waited on the glue to dry, I cut out two of the small and one large aster with the ODBD Asters and Leaves Die. I also sponged these pieces. I thought the small asters needed something more so I glued them together and took the heal of the flip flop stamp and stamped the fish pattern. I then glued all of my flower layers together and added bling to the center.

I used a pink A2 card base and added the textured ocean pattern as a layer. When I placed the flower on the card, it reminded me of a water lily so I added a few leaves and swirly vines. I added the words to my large flip flops, sponged, blinged and glittered. I used thin dimensional foam on the shoes and affixed them to the card. At the very bottom I added a strip of border and topped it with a pearl and lace trim.
Materials List
Stamps- ODBD Walk with Jesus, ODBD My Lifeguard
Ink- SU! Pretty in Pink along with the matching marker to color the flip flop straps
Card Stock- White, SU! Pretty in Pink, SU! Certainly Celery, SU! Green Galore

Taking A Look Back at the Our Daily Bread Designs August Release

Join me today as we take a look back at the Our Daily Bread Designs August release! I have had a blast working with these beautiful stamps for the last few weeks and have come to the conclusion that these are some of my very favorite stamps, in my stamp collection!
Today's project is a vintage style gate fold card! The card base is kraft card stock and then I cut five panels of teal designer paper to line the card. I inked my Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder with Soft Suede ink and ran a piece of vintage designer paper called marmalade through my die cutting machine. I cut this down to make the panels on the front of the card. next,I took some printed cork and cut the shape on the left from theODBD Onate Borders and Flower Die set. Then I stamped the sentiment from the ODBD Walk with Jesus stamp set and die cut it with the ODBD Pennants die. Before I removed it from the die, I sponged around the edge to add that vintage feel. On the right side, I stamped the Flip Flops from the ODBD Walk with Jesus stamp set onto printed cork and cut it out with the matching ODBD Flip Flop Dies. I added tiny peals to the center of the flip flop and larger pearls to each corner of the panel.
The center of the card features the lifeguard stand stamp which I cut with oval spellbinder dies and mounted onto an embossed Heritage Cuttlebug frame. I inked the embossing folder first to get this vintage look. Next, I added a few pearls and inked a few edges to finish everything off.  
If you haven't already been to the ODBD blog today, head on over and see what we have for you there about the release. Make sure you hop on over to the other design team member blogs and check out the details on what cool stuff they made too!
