The Clean & Simple Challenge on Splitcoast (CAS477), was to use Poppies in honor of Anzac Remembrance Day. It’s a day in Australia & New Zealand similar to our Memorial or Armistice Days. 

I love poppies & my card is made up of a lot of leftovers so it went pretty fast. The poppies were die cut out of leftover watercolor bg, the Smile & brick bg were die cut out of leftover strips. I think the only new piece was the white linen bg. I used a semi-circle die (Blueprints 21) to cut out the frame around the poppy & added a few stamped & die cut sequin images.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today I’m sharing a couple of cards I made for Our Daily Bread designs’ 10th Anniversary celebration. I was one of the past ODBD designers they asked to participate in the reunion!


My first card uses the God Quotes 2 set along w/ one of my faves, Beauty. The quote was stamped & die cut w/ the largest of the Tag Trio dies. I used part of the Fancy Circles dies to make a little tag topper & the matching Lily die to cut out the part of the lily that tag would have covered up. The lily was stamped on a larger white panel & I did a little out of the box on the right side when I die cut it w/ the pierced rectangles. The largest panel was die cut w/ the largest pierced rectangle & I die cut the center out of it using one of the Lavish Layers dies. I liked the pattern it left by using the negative space w/ a rose colored layer behind it.
Here’s the inside & the Copics I used.

Supplies:

Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs – God Quotes 2, Beauty
Paper: X-Press It white, Staples 110# white, Bazzill deep rose
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Accessories:  ODBD Pierced Rectangles, Lavish Layers, Fancy Circles, Tag Trio, Lily dies, Copic markers, Misti, sheer ribbon


My second card uses the same God Quotes 2 & Fancy Circles dies along w/ the beautiful Romantic Roses paper. I thought it really made it stand out by using basically a 2 color scheme & gave it an almost iced cake look w/ all the fancy layers.

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS580) so a big congrats to Carlene! Carlene not only has a beautiful gallery, she also volunteers her time to notify people each week in the favorites thread & also leaves the warmest, sweetest comments for everyone. It’s truly my pleasure to feature her this week.

After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I love the sun ray embossing so I kept that, but I used different colors, different die cut bg & made mine an Easter card.

For my Easter card, I first die cut & embossed the sunburst bg. For the Lily Cross Blessings circle, I stamped it w/ Versacolor indigo pigment ink then heat embossed it w/ pastel embossing powder. The embossing powder lightens the ink color &  gives it a slight metallic sheen. For the lilies,  I put the image into my Misti, stamped it w/ sky blue ink, lightly colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ the same indigo ink & embossed w/ the same powder. Then I did quite a bit of fussy cutting on them. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
