ODBDSLC248 Anything goes with ODBD stamps



For me, this anything goes challenge means Christmas in July and I have made gift tags! I like to color coordinate some of my Christmas trees and the gift wrap that lies beneath. My parlor tree is full of pinks and white. I think these pretty pink tags will be perfect for the gifts under that tree!

I hope you will play along with the Our Daily Bread Designs challenge. Here are the details.

ODBDSLC247 Floral Inspiration

It's challenge time again and the pics for this floral inspiration are truly awesome!!! They transport me back to vacation spots like Cape May, NJ and Martha's Vinyard, MA. I guess that's why I like this challenge so much. I can almost smell the homemade fudge and seafood!!!  WOW, I could really use a vacation with a fresh seafood meal!
Here are the challenge details and I hope you play along!

You have already seen me use the new window dies on this card. So, I thought I would do something a little different instead of the standard window for this challenge. I incorporated the window into this welcoming front door scene. it was easy to make by combining different die cuts!
If you have enjoyed looking at my project, I know you are going to love the other projects that my design team sisters have made!!! Stop by and leave them some love! I think they have some very creative projects!!

ODBDSLC246 With Sympathy

Hey crafty friends! It's time for the July sketch challenge at Our Daily Bread Design and I hope that you will come along and play with us! I'm sad to say that I have been having some technical challenges with one of the web sites at Our Daily Bread Designs over the last few weeks. That means that  I don't have all of the challenge and design team info for you here yet. Hopefully I will have that info for you by this afternoon.  For now, you can get to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog by clicking the hot link above. Get the low down on the challenge and visit the design team members too! Be sure and check out their blogs since they always have other great tidbits of information for you!!!
My card measures 4 1/2 x 6 inches and it's very shiny in real life! I had to tone down the picture to keep the glare down and it looks very gray and white here. It's actually silver and white with a little gray mixed in! This beautiful sympathy stamp set was perfect to use with silver embossing powder and then I added a sheer silver bow, with just a touch of bling, to finish things off. Most of you will be able to figure out the layers on this one easily so I won't bore you with details. Just check out the materials list below.  Sould have any questions, feel free to ask! If you need an elegant and easy sympathy card, this is just the ticket!!!

As promised, here are the design team links and the challenge info!!!

Add foam tape to the back of the large posts and in the center of the fence.
Glue down the card front to the card base and clip the top two corners of the card base so it does not protrude above the roof of the house. Leave about 1/8 inch white border along the bottom.
Adhere the fence to the card front.

Directions
1. Color the main image and shade with alcohol markers. (I usually do my coloring the day before I assemble my card.)
2. Color the teacup handle with the silver paint pen.
3. Apply Glossy Accents to the teacup and saucer portions only. Not on the flowers except for the band on the cup itself.  Allow to dry completely.
4. Using the Memento ink, stamp the teacup image on smooth white card stock. Stamp the happy birthday and enjoy your day! on smooth Aloe card stock.
5.  Cut the card base out of Bristol paper. The measurements are 4 1/4  x 8 1/2 inches and I scored at        2 1/4 and again at 4 1/4 inches.
6. Cut a piece of white card stock 4 1/4 x 6 1/2 and emboss it. Cut a 4 1/4 square from this.
7. Line the back edges with extra sticky 1/4 inch double sided tape and add 1/4 inche gathered lace. Pleat each corner of the lace on a 45 degree angle to make the corners.
8. Cut another piece of white card 4 1/4 square and attach to the back so that it looks finished.
9. Line the front edge of this piece with a strip of  half back pearls that measure about 4 mm around.
10. Die cut a doily with Pink Pirouetts paper.
11. Die cut the outside doily shape  and the in Aloe. Die cut the sentiments using the Mini Tags Dies and the Recipe and Tags Dies.
12. Die cut the flower shapes and leaves in white card stock.
13. Sponge Aqua ink on the base flower, Outside doily shape, mini tag and recipe tag. I use the small round sponging tool by Tim Holtz.
14. Cut out the teacup image.
15. Glue the two doily pieces together and mount the main image on this with dimensional foam.
16. Apply dimensional foam to the back of the doily and center this on the embossed square.
17. Apply this square to the card front. (For an Easel card, you add glue to your card base on the first section from 0 to the first score line at 2 1/4 inches.)
18. Cut the remaining embossed card stock to 4 x 2 3/8 inches and apply to the bottom of the inside           (of the card).
19. Assemble the flower and leaf pieces with dots of glue. Add a thick dot of glitter glue to the center       of the flower.  Set aside to dry.
20. Make a small bow out of two strands of silver cording and glue to the top of the small sentiment         tag.
21. Add tag with bow to the front right lower corner of the card.
22. Add the flower to the larger tag.
23. Add dimensional foam to the back of this tag and center it to the embossed card on the inside.
24. Fluff the paper flower for added dimension and set the card up.
25. Enjoy!
