Julie Warner –

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT430), we are to feature music and/or instruments. I went w/ the music as these are words from “America the Beautiful”. I’m still hearing the song every time I look at my card.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I love Patriotic cards and images and there’s nothing finer than the old red, white & blue. This card was fairly quick and easy. I cut a section of designer paper that included the flag and attached it on a navy blue layer. The eagle and musical sentiment were stamped w/ denim ink and colored w/ Copics. I die cut it using my Out of the Box Nestie technique using a Spellbinders deckled rectangle. With the die in place, I sponged a little antique linen ink on it. This was a left over piece of vanilla c/s and I think it must have been around a long time because when I removed the die, I noticed some fine cracking when I bent it. I kind of liked it and to me, it went w/ the distressed look so I used it. I added a few stamped & punched out stars next to it. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For today’s Technique Challenge (TLC426), the theme is Scrappy & Loopy…use scraps & show some loops that aren’t bows. So my card is made mostly w/ scraps…the deckled vanilla panel I stamped the image on is a leftover and was barely big enough. The layer behind it is a paint chip which I guess counts as a scrap. The other vanilla layer and the dk red layer were both the size  you see so technically, they are not much more than scraps. For the loops, I put a couple of loose loops in this piece of leftover twine. The image was colored w/ Copics. I pierced two of the layers and distressed the edges of the dk red layer. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and the images are all from DRS Designs.

Hello my friends! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs Nov. Release
Blog Hop!  You might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don’t miss anything!

For my card, I used the fabulous new Chickadee Ornament!

I also used the lovely O Christmas Tree Carol from last month’s release. the pine branch/pinecone from Sing for Joy and the sweet little Chickadee w/ matching die.

Julie Warner -
After stamping the ornament and chickadee, I die cut the ornament w/ a circle die and the backing gold layer w/ a larger circle. I used the matching die for the chickadee (such a fabulous time saver!) and added a little color w/ copics. The pine branches were fussy cut. Originally, I had a separate background using the music background, but it just didn’t work so instead I stamped it w/ gold ink directly on the white card front. I thought I still needed a little separation between the main images and background, so I die cut a pine green frame and added a little texture. I just happened to have the red ring (from another project) and it was the right size so I added it inside the frame edge. Instead of adding another layer, I sponged the gold ink around the edges of the card front. A little gold bow w/ some added pine branch cut outs on top finished my 4.25 x 5.50 card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
