NCC Set Sail 06436
For my seafaring card, after stamping & coloring the sailboat, I used the two sizes of ODBD circle dies to cut it and my out of the box technique to keep from cutting off the mast. After edging the sailboat circle w/ a black marker, I cut a white circle to put behind it and a larger circle out of the same dp I used for the largest pennant. The background panels came about because I had less than a full sheet of the two large strips so I added a narrow piece of the starry dp between the two and attached them to a large white panel I die cut using the largest die of the Flourished Star Pattern set. A smaller pennant, some die cut stars & the compass rose were added to finish.

Here’s a look at the inside using some leftover pieces. NCC Set Sail inside 06442
The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

NCC Deer & Eagle cu 06461
My second card takes us to the mountains & forest. For this card, I got out my trusty little brayer and a rainbow ink pad and brayered over a large white panel. 
NCC Deer & Eagle 06456
I had the top white panel left after I die cut the white circle to back the sailboat card above, so I die cut it using the same Flourished Star Pattern die & used a slightly larger circle to make it a bit bigger and after determining the opening on the brayered panel, I stamped the mountain scene, did a little masking and stamped parts of it again to fill in. On the top white panel, I used a torn diagonal mask & brayered the same colors across it. I did even it up a tad using sponging. A reverse circle mask was used to sponge in the sun then I stamped the sun/eagle on top and the deer & tree at the bottom. The ground image was also stamped using the dark blue of the rainbow pad. I like how it just adds the hint of solid ground. The greeting was also stamped just under the circle opening.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and here’s a look at the inside using a leftover frame I had sitting around. I brayered it, stamped the tree, deer and the eagle.

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs  Alumni Team’s bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.   You may want to start at the ODBD Blog so you won’t miss a thing! This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of ODBD  embossing plates! 
Embossing plates are a little different from embossing folders, but there are a number of techniques to really show them off. I love distressing the embossed card stock with a sanding block to bring out the little embossed fish. I made sure to use a white core card stock so that when embossed and sanded, the embossed fish would really show up. Before I embossed it, I also added a little ink to the c/s and afterwards, I really roughed up the edges.
I paired the embossed fish panel with this wonderful new ship from Surging Sea and sentiment from Smooth Sailing. Water colors were used on thin water color paper (think kid’s w/c pad), then the image was stamped and bleached. Since I was into distressing, I continued on w/ roughing up the edges and even tore a bit off one corner. The sentiment was die cut w/ a little pennant die and also distressed. The white x’s on the orange dp were added w/ a white gel pen. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Friday! For today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A124), we are to use something ‘wood”, image or actual…whatever! So I’m using a “wooden ship” image. It’s new from Our Daily Bread designs and my new fave image.

Julie Warner-justwritedesigns-The Write Stuff
The ship scene was stamped on white, water colored w/ markers, trimmed closely and attached to a piece of vanilla c/s that I die cut and resized to fit the image. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of the dp w/ the indigo ink and the compass was stamped w/ the tea dye ink.

The rest is all dp from a big 12×12 pad but the only name I can see on it is ATD but I liked the colors and textured papers and thought they went well w/ my vintage looking image. On the green section, I stamped the compass repeatedly with the bamboo ink then cut it in half so I could have the bands of color across the top and bottom. I hid the seam behind a striped band of dp, layered on the cranberry and a piece of gold (it’s the reverse side of the green).  The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
