Birthday Paints cu 08013
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs December release! Aren’t you over the moon with these beautiful images & fabulous dies? As a special treat, I’m including a little tutorial on how I did the double die cutting. The stitched circle around the horses is part of the white stitched frame. Tricky, huh? It’s actually a combination of out of the box & into the window. I will mention, I do both of these techniques on a regular basis so I don’t have a problem coloring my image first. If you’re trying this for the first time, you may want to color afterwards. That way if you have to try again, you won’t be out a lot of time & effort coloring it.
This is also for IC524 Inspiration Challenge & THIS was the button I was inspired by.

Birthday Paints 08015 After I stamped my image w/ Memento onto a 4.25 x 5.50 piece of X-Press It, I colored it w/ Copics. The horses were colored to resemble Indian Paints. I still had the image in my Misti, so I over stamped it w/ Versafine to really sharpen the details.  Now comes the Double Die Cutting how to…(click any picture to make it bigger.)

Birthday Paints cu 08013 To finish, I stamped the mill scene onto textured chocolate using the sepia ink twice then added the highlights w/ a white Prismacolor pencil. The leftover outer stitched circle frame was colored w/ a Copic & put back around the image. A punched fence was attached behind the image & the oval stitched greeting added on top. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Saddle Up cu 04374
ETA: Just found out this card was Published in Just Cards, Summer 2015, Vol 38!
The Ways to Use It Challenge (WT535), has us heading west & using a cowboy theme in honor of John Wayne. I have this cute little cowpoke & silhouette riders so this is my western theme card.
Saddle Up 04372
After stamping, coloring and fussy cutting the little cowboy, I added him to a white frame I stamped w/ just the rope portion of the image. For the inside area, I sponged on yellows, oranges & a bit of red at the top, then stamped the silhouette cowboys & the stars in a combination of sky blue and soft pool because I wanted them visible, but not so dark that the greeting wouldn’t show up well when I stamped it on top.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used to color the cute little cowboy.

Shamrock Lattice cu 05606

Shamrock Lattice 05605
After using two sizes of Labels 22 to make my frame, I also die cut a fancy lattice, used part of it behind the frame and the rest for the lower part of my card front. The Infinity Shamrock was stamped w/ green ink, then I added a light green shading to it before stamping the greeting on top with black. I attached it on top of the lattice and a green panel behind the lattice before attaching to my card. The shamrock swag was colored & fussy cut.
