Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs‘  Alumni Team’s bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from the  blog of thevery talented Rosemary Dennis, then you’re in the right place. If not, you may want to go to the ODBD Blog  and start from the beginning. This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop for the For the Love of ODBD Backgrounds! 
For my card, I used two backgrounds: the Large Bird Background and the Wood Background.
The two backgrounds were stamped with the pigment ink and the edges sponged w/ the same ink and a little of the darker fluid chalk ink on the very edge.
On the sentiment/label, I placed a mask where the sentiment would be and inked the rest DTP (direct to paper) with the pixie dust ink at the top, papaya cream ink in the middle and rose coral ink at the bottom. After it dried,  I removed the mask and stamped the label and sentiment with black ink.  I really wanted to use gray ink, but it just looked too washed out. I used a white gel pen to add the tiny white dots around the flowers. It was die cut w/ the coordinating Spellbinders Labels 18 die.  I die cut a flourish out of some left over DTP c/s and added the two little punched birds and a double bow. The finished card is 6.25 x 4.50 (A6).


Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m also adding this to the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast (IC328).

For my card, I turned the sketch on its side to better fit the images. I used parts of the super cute Meow Collage. I used a DTP (direct to paper) technique with chalk inks on white card stock. The images were stamped on top of this background. The cat was stamped again on white and I paper pieced the cut out cat and stripes onto the white image. I also added some paper pieced eyes I colored green onto to the pink version cat. The kitty stripes, nose & ears were colored with a white gel pen.

For the yarn balls, I masked the first stamping and stamped it again.  On top of the panel behind it, I stamped the Triangle Stripes across it. The Posy and Posy Greeting Center were stamped and cut out and I added some pink sorbet twine behind it. The large background was also done DTP and I used a large corner rounder on the corners. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

And here’s a look at my note book.

Welcome the the Our Daily Bread designs June Release Blog Hop! If you got here from Lorelie’s incredible blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog and hop from there so you have a chance to win one of the FOUR fabulous prizes up for grabs this month!

j Aren’t the June Release images beautiful?  For my card I’m using the Dahlia and Crochet Border (from the Serve the Lord set) along with the Butterfly Single (& matching die) and a Birthday sentiment. The pink background and dahlia were done DTP (direct to paper) using pigment inks. After setting them w/ a heat tool, I went over it an Opalite ink pad then heat set again. I love the soft shimmer of the Opalite ink. The dahlia was stamped and black embossed several times, cut out and layered together for depth and color variation.

Julie Warner - justwritedesigns - The crochet border was stamped on the DTP background panel and the white panel w/ the green ink and I used the matching border die to carefully cut just the outside edge of the white panel (I used the Sizxix machine for this). Even though this is a fairly large card (5.5 square), I ran out of room for the sentiment. So I stamped it on the ribbon and attached it across the corner.

Tip: If you don’t have the right ribbon (color or width), either color white ribbon w/ markers or turn the ribbon over to see if the back side will work. For this card, I didn’t have the right width of plain ribbon, so I turned a stripe ribbon over and saw the back side was a very pale pink and would work.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
