Welcome back to the last week of guest designing at Our Daily Bread Designs! I've had great fun playing with their wonderful stamps, dies and papers! I have several more ideas sketched out for other ODBD projects and I hope to implement those in the near future. I have more ideas than time at the moment! My new puppy takes up a lot of my time as I teach and train him how to be a great addition to the family.
My design today has been kicking around in my head for the last several months. It came to me after I did the Pop Up Garden Card back in March. I have just expounded on the idea of being able the change out the scene according to the season or my particular mood. I have used the window die and made a box that attaches to the back of the die cut. This box houses all of the stamped scenes.
I then added flowers to dress things up a bit and added the sentiment from the Scripture Collection 3 stamp set. You can see that I cut apart the smallest die cut from the Vintage Flourish Pattern die set as a decorative element to the sentiment. The center rose is one I made from ribbon and the white flowers are all made of clay. I found them in the bridal section of my craft store. The smaller ribbon roses came from a craft store and have been in my stash for many years. Some of the leaves are silk and came with the clay flowers and some of them are paper. I made these with the Fancy Foliage Dies.
Christian Faith Collection to decorate the box. The lavender paper has some yellow in it and pairs nicely with the yellow flowers and yellow in each stamped image. These pictures don't really pick that up but in real life, it goes well together.
Keep My Lamp Burning
The Mighty Sea
Adding an image of Garden Path would be a great addition to this trio.
I can see giving this as part of a house warming gift, to someone in a nursing home/hospital or just to decorate a bookcase. I think a beach themed Pop Up card would be nice. It could be decorated with tiny shells and sea glass instead of flowers. Stamped images from the Pond, Keep Climbing and Quiet Waters would look great decorated with twigs, moss and woodland flowers. How about using Garden Path, Bicycle and Butterfly Path for a garden themed card? There are all sorts of things you could do with this idea and change the theme around.
I hope this sparks your creativity! If you make one of these, let me know. I would love to see what you come up with! I know that you may have questions about how this was made so I will add a video and explain a few things in my next post. Until then, have a great day!
