Best of 2011

Terrific challenges for yesterday and today! Didn’t have a chance to do the Featured Stamper (FS244)  yesterday so I’m combining it w/ today’s Technique Challenge (TLC346). Congrats to Julie! Loved her gallery and I chose Lace Edges to case. I kept the layout and colors similar but used different images, added the ornaments and used some embossing down one side instead of the punched border.

All images are Our Daily Bread designs. My stacked background was done by first stamping the snowflake bg w/ the sky blue ink. I stamped portions of the lg snowflake w/ sky blue & true blue pigment inks. The star like ornament was stamped w/ silver and the edges were sponged.

The 2 ornaments & sentiment were stamped w/ the midnight ink and I added some color to the ornaments w/ markers & a silver gel pen. On the right side of the ultramarine layer, I embossed only the right side of a lg frame embossing folder.

Originally, the crochet lace under the sentiment tag was white and it was going to stay that way. But I had a little mishap w/ an ink pad so I just colored the whole piece dk blue. Oh well. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Very interesting sketch today (SC350 ) at Splitcoast! At first it seems simple, but those angles at the top and bottom got a little tricky when I wanted to add a narrow layer.

For my monochromatic card, I stamped the quote (Our Daily Bread designs), die cut it along w/ a ridged grey layer. They’re attached to a labels 17 die cut stamped w/ a fancy label image. I used some stripe dp for my bg panel and used a Scor-Buddy to add some scored diagonal lines on the right card front.

The dahlia is a new EK Success punch. You punch a long line then roll it up to create the flower. I made a Faux Brad  (I have another tutorial HERE) out of the grey for the flower center and added a few branches. The finished card is 5.5 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello everyone!!! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs September release blog hop! This month’s release is super fun!! I just love all these sets with a plant and seeds theme!!! Julie Warner - justwritedesigns -

For my card, I colored the wonderful image from The Good Seed and cut it out. It’s attached to a Scrolly Border which was also colored and die cut w/ a Spellbinders Long Rectangle that I resized to make shorter. The green card stock was embossed w/ a journal folder and added some raised dots w/ a black glaze pen. The very colorful dp is some I’ve had in my stash for a while. The paper bow was made from some Twistel (tightly wrapped paper) that I unwrapped before tying it in a bow. I used a 1/2″ circle for my faux brad made from the same dp. The finished card measures 5 x 6.5 (A7). [Note: to those who asked about lining up the sentiment w/ the embossing folder. I figured out where the image panel would go, then stamped the greeting on the green c/s. Then I placed the green c/s in the embossing folder and lined it up. It’s much easier to align the folder w/ the stamped image than vice versa. 🙂 ]
