Vintage Hatstand cu2 09091
Weekly-Favorite   best-of-2016-scs-smaller
Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs May Release Blog Hop! We have some beautiful images & fabulous dies for you this month, so get comfy & prepare to be amazed!

Vintage Hatstand 09092
After stamping, coloring & over stamping this lovely Hatstand image, I die cut it using the new Pierced Ovals dies & matted it w/ pink polka dot paper (from the Shabby Rose paper collection) die cut w/ the largest Oval die. Behind them I added a slightly altered Doily die cut. Normally it is round, but I split it in two & spread it apart then added an extra, separate piece of one section of another doily die cut on top & bottom to fill in. On the background, I stamped the birdcage w/ the gray flannel ink & die cut it w/ the matching die. After I cut down this piece, I added a smaller piece of the blue paper on top & a die cut border covering the join. The die cut birdcage was put back into the same opening where I cut it out & I added the frame left from die cutting the largest Lavish Layer on top. This frame was also cut w/ the largest Pierced Rectangle die. The greeting was die cut using one of the Mini Tags…I just cut it once, then turned the die around & cut again to remove the hole part. A small bow was added underneath and a trio of Bitty Blossoms added in the lower right corner. A little stickles was added to the flowers on the hat & I used a pearl pen to add the centers to the flowers & on the doily.

Here are the Copics I used.

Just For You cu 09053
On my second card, I’m featuring the fabulous Majestic Medallion die & Medallion Sentiments set. I started by stamping the frame w/ the pink ink & die cutting it using the inside die of the coordinating Flourishy Frame die. The flourishy part of this die was used on a piece of dk navy card stock & layered underneath the stamped pink section. I added a white layer die cut w/ the Quatrefoil Design die (it fits around the Flourishy Frame perfectly!) The large pastel pink layer was cut using the outside frame die of the Majestic Medallion dies & I used the flourishy part of the die to cut the navy topper. This navy layer was added on top of the Flourishy Frame layers then both attached to the pink layer. I had also cut this Majestic Medallion out of white & I added just a few of the inside pieces into the matching areas inside the navy layer.
Just for You 09051
The greeting was die cut w/ a pierced circle & inserted into the center of the navy frame. All the Bitty Blossoms & Pretty Posies were shaped a little before adding in the left corner. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the Medallion Bg to stamp over the inside in pink, then masked off the center & stamped the edges in denim. A navy Micron pen was used to define the line between the two colors.

Antique Dress Form cu 04477

Weekly-Favorite Weekly-Favorite
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs September release! The images and doily dies are well…to die for! Vintage is not a style I use very often, but these lovely antique dress form images just scream vintage. 

Antique Dress Form 04480
After stamping and coloring the Victoria dress form, I die cut it using the Antique Labels die, left the die in place and sponged on some antique linen ink. The Doily die was cut out of black and added behind the dress form. On the ivory panel underneath it on the left, I stamped the Birthday Doily image using the spun sugar ink.  The designer paper on right was much paler to begin with, but I added more color to the flowers and also stamped the Elizabeth dress form with the tattered rose ink randomly all over it. 

I finished w/ some half pearls in different sizes and a seam ribbon bow I also colored with Copics to match. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Julie Warner –
Congrats to Jenn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS369) on Splitcoast! After much browsing, I chose THIS card of Jenn’s to case. I kept the layout and used a girl for the main image, but I used different image, different colors and turned my bow sideways. This is also for the Sweet Stamps Challenge…Favorite Color! My fave color is green and I love it paired w/ these peachy/pink colors.

After coloring Margery with Copics, I die cut her with a mega oval then embossed her with the oval from the Radiant Rectangles set then added her to the green die cut from the same set. The designer paper is from Prima and I used it because the vintage style seemed to go with my vintage lady. But…the paper didn’t have quite enough of the peachy pink colors so I used a Copic to add more of these colors to the paper. I also used the bisque & sardonyx Copics to color the seam binding I used for the wrinkled bow. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used. And in case you’re wondering, the blue violet was used for the shadows on Margery’s skin.

Julie Warner –
