    For my card, I stamped the sunflowers, colored them with markers and used the out of  the box Nestie technique and a labels 8 to cut it out. It’s matted on a larger black layer. For the next layer, I used some fancy edge scissors, called sunflower, to trim around the rectangle, then sponged ink on the edges.

    The grid background was done by covering the white c/s with some drywall mesh then sponging yellow and orangey inks over it. After removing the mesh, you get this wonderful grid pattern. I added a narrow black border (also trimmed w/ the scissors) near the edge of my 5.5 x 4.25 white card. A checkered bow and Happy Fall tag finished the card.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my project today. From here, hop over to Connie McCotter’s blog to be inspired and blessed!

  • Another Twofer!

    And Dare to Get Dirty week continues! You can view a Master List of all the Challenges Here, but you’ll need to be a Fan Club Member.



    This first card was made for the following DTGD challenges: DTGD10JeanneS, DTGD10DeborahLynneS, DTGD10cindy_haffner, DTGD10flowergal36 and DTGD10justwritedesigns01. That’s a lot of challenges! I worked on this off an on over a couple of days and putting all the pieces together was really a challenge in itself.

    All images are Sparkle N Sprinkle. Actually there are only 2 stamped images; the lawn chair and the sentiment. Everything else was done with punches and scissors.

    The flower/sun and umbrella were both created using Quickutz scalloped flower dies and a chrysanthemum punch. The two bands of grass were cut with pinking shears then slits cut all along the tops. Greenery and flowers were also added. The sentiment was stamped on a leftover brayered piece and hand trimmed. A little butterfly was punched and a trail drawn with a black pen. Finished card measures 4.5 x 6.25 (A6).

    This second card was done for the sketch challenge, SC290. Since Roxie based the sketch on this card I did last year, I couldn’t pass up making a card for the challenge. I was pretty excited when I saw the challenge.

    All images are Our Daily Bread designs. I started with what I thought was a quick and easy idea: split the image over the three panels. Even with the SAMJ (stamp a ma jig), it’s harder than it sounds. But I finally got it to work.

    The left and right squares were punched in opposite corners and each square was matted with black, then attached them to a larger ivory panel. I stamped the wheat image below them and added a larger black mat. The sentiment oval and black oval were cut with Spellbinders petite ovals. The finished ivory card measures 6.25 x 4.50 (A6).

  • ODBD July Release Blog Hop!

    Welcome to the ODBD July Release Blog Hop! We have been having fun playing with these sets and I know you will too! If you arrived here from Sandee’s blog, then you’re in the right place. If not, you may want to jump over to the ODBD Blog and start from there.

    Since it’s the Independence Day holiday weekend here in the USA,  we’re going to keep the hop real simple! There are no secret words to collect, no email to send to me… just a fun blog hop!

    Here’s the fun part! There are THREE prizes of WINNER’S CHOICE ONE FREE SET, but they are hidden on three different designer’s blogs! You won’t know who has the prizes!

    For my card, I’m using two of the new sets, Our Daily Bread and The Living Bread. This is one of those cards that hardly resembles the idea I started with this morning. I woke up with a clear picture of the card I wanted. Maybe I’ll get to that one another day since this definitely isn’t it, lol.

    The wheat cross was stamped with a combination of lt brown and palm leaf inks then the verse was stamped with evergreen pigment ink. It’s attached to a slightly larger green panel and both have the edges rounded. The punched tan layer has the edges sponged.  Remember those hand held ribbon punches? I remembered I have one but it took me a while to find it. When I did,  I used it on a leftover strip of the dp and inserted a narrow chocolate satin ribbon through the slits. Just for fun, I twisted the ribbon before attaching it. The final card measures 4.25 x 5.5 (A2).

    The Blog Hop will run from 8am Eastern on Thursday, July 1 through 8pm Eastern Friday July 2. At that time the three designers with the prizes will randomly select their winner from their commenters. They will check this post to be sure the person they draw has left their comment here, stating that they have completed the hop…. and then they will give me the name and the winners will be announced on Sat. the 3rd on the ODBD Blog!

    The next stop is Randi’s Blog. I know she’ll have something fabulous to share!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck!
