For the Inspiration Challenge (IC649), Angie chose Vineyard Marketplace & I chose THIS for my inspiration. I like the bright colors & floral theme.

This bg was made a while ago, using swirls made with plain old glue then using watercolors on top of it. I just really like the bright, happy colors & thought they’d go well behind these whimsical leaves. The leaves were put into my Misti, stamped, colored w/ Copics & a Prismacolor pencil overlay, then stamped again. I added the greeting & did my out of the box technique to die cut it. By the way, I first did that tutorial way back in Feb 2009 using another IO image set! It’s probably my most used technique. After matting, I used stickles in some areas, added a few sequins & some white dots for contrast. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.

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.
