Christmas Poinsettia Quilt cu 08908
Today’s Sketch Challenge (SC590) on Splitcoast is an easy one w/ lots of possibilities. I thought I’d use this fabulous Dresden Quilt die along w/ the poinsettias dies to get an early start on some Christmas cards.

I die cut the quilt 3 in white, one in pine green & one in a sheet of the Cozy Quilt paper. After piecing them all together, I attached to a white base die cut w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles, then a larger pine green layer.

The poinsettia was die cut using the Peaceful Poinsettias & Merry Mosaics dies & I used a stylus to add a little shape to them before attaching in the center of my quilt. The die cut Merry was added underneath w/ the Christmas attached to a large bow & added below.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Ever fi nd yourself not using stamps you recently purchased? Ever wonder where has your Mojo gone? Sometimes experimenting with a different medium or even a card layout, takes your creativity to another level. All of us at ISC  hope these projects will inspire you to dust off those stamps you haven’t used in a while and try any of these Projects and let us know your thoughts!



Today, we used a sketch for our inspiration. I used a number of ocean and map images for my Ocean Mosaic. After stamping, the colors were sponged on then the various images were assembled on a black background then attached to a 5.5 x 4.25 (A2) gold ochre card. I cut out the sentiment and two anchors and attached them on top with a piece of raffia.

Welcome to day 4 of our special Second Anniversary Celebration at Our Daily Bread designs!

Today, as we continue our Anniversary celebration, we are challenging you to use your all time favorite Our Daily Bread designs Set! As with all the challenges this week… this challenge was announced on Mar. 7th on the ODBD Blog so you could get a head start, and we hope you have had the chance to play along with us, but if not, you have until 8:00 pm EST tonight to link your creation to Mr Linky on the ODBD blog! The winner will be chosen by random and will receive ONE FREE SET of their choice from the Our Daily Bread designs store! We will announce the winner tomorrow here on the Blog when we issue you the instructions for the big reveal of the Very Special Edition Anniversary Release Sets and Blog Hop! You do not want to miss it!!!

For my favorite, I chose the You Will Find Refuge set.  I love this little chickadee and the Psalm is so wonderful and uplifting. I combined them with the Nest set. After all, my favorite thing is to combine images.   I stamped and masked the chickadee then stamped the nest next to him. On a separate piece, I stamped the chickadee twice more and the nest once more. Then I used Spellbinders rectangles to cut the pieces and make my mosaic. For the largest rectangle, I used my Out of the Box Nestie technique. After coloring the images with markers, I sponged on blue and pink inks around the images.  I cut backing layers out of brilliant blue, added a little foam tape and put the pieces back together.  I stamped only the branches from the nest image for the area underneath the sentiment. For the little blue accents, I used the small dies from the Fleur de lis nestie set.

Please be sure to visit all the blogs linked below, and leave a comment for each designer, because there is hidden candy on some of the blogs!
