Fabulous Friend

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a card that I made for my BFF's Birthday this month.  I've used Graceful Still Life Digital Stamp for the image and Pure Prairie Bouquet Digital Stamp for the sentiment.

I've edited the two images together using Photoshop and printed it out onto X-press It Blending Card and then coloured with Copics.  I've die cut the pink layer using Blushing Bride and Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor Die.  I've then cut the image to fit and cropped the corners with a punch.  I've matted this with Pool Party card and attached to the front of a piece of folded Kraft card. To finish I sprinkled a few sequins around the image.

Stamps - Digital: Graceful Still Life, Pure Prairie Bouquet (Power Poppy)
Ink - Printer
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Kraft
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders A2 Valiant HonorDie, Sequins

Birthday Cake!

Hello Everyone!  It's Power Poppy Friday and I've been playing with Layer Cake Digi Stamp.  I've actually modified this image by removing the sentiment on the banner and replaced it with one done on the computer.

I was asked to make a birthday card for a female, so I tried to make this pink and fun! :)  I've cut the base card and used a border punch across the bottom, then layered with white card, green checked paper and a piece of white embossed card.  I've printed the cake and created sentiment from Layer Cake onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copies.  I've cut this with Oval Nestabilities and matted with pink card cut with Lacy Oval Nestabilities.  To finish I've added a little bit of bunting using Pennant Row Dies and some sparkly sequins for a bit of fun!

Stamps - Layer Cake (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Pink, Graphic 45 DP
Ink - Printer
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders: Oval and Lacy Oval Nestabilities; ODBD Pennant Row Dies, Sequins, Embossing Folder, Border Punch

Bunnies and Letters!

Hello Everyone!  It's the start of a new month, and that means another new release by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I actually have THREE cards for you today using a new stamp set - Hoppy Birthday, and new dies......are you ready........A LARGE ALPHABET!!!  I know.... SWOOON!!  The alphabet can be bought as individual letters or as a bundle!

My first card has used Hoppy Birthday stamp set, some older ODBD Dies - Rounded Rectangles and Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles to cut out and mat the cute bunny image (which is coloured with Copies).  Down one side I've used the Trellis Strip die and topped with a yellow gingham ribbon.  The  sentiment is also from Hoppy Birthday, cut with Circles die and matted with yellow card cut using Asters and Leaves Die.  Of course I can't forget that beautiful paper - a new paper pad called Beautiful Blooms!

Stamps - Hoppy Birthday (ODBD)
Paper - ODBD Beautiful Blooms Paper Pad, White, Blushing Bride
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Rounded Double Stitched Rectangles, Rounded Rectangles, Asters and Leaves, Trellis; Copics, Yellow Gingham Ribbon, Bow Easy

My second card is showcasing the Letter H Die!  I was thinking of my lovely niece Heidi who likes pink and aqua!  I've used a base of Pool Party, topped with a strip of Beautiful Blooms paper.  Then I've used Lavish Layers to cut some Blushing Bride card and topped it with more Beautiful Blooms paper.  I've used Beautiful Blooms paper and Bitty Blossoms dies to create the flowers and leaves (plus a little white card).  I've used Circle and Pierced Circles to create another panel.  I've used the Letter H Die to cut three pieces of white card and one piece using Beautiful Blooms.  I've used some Triple Tac to brush each die cut and layer them on top of each other and added the patterned paper die cut to the top and then brushed more Triple Tac over the top to create a thick letter - sort of like a Thicker!  I've glued this to the circle and accented with clear rhinestones.

Stamps - None
Ink - None
Paper - ODBD Beautiful Blooms Paper Pad, Pool Party, White, Blushing Bride
Accessories - ODBD Custom Dies: Letter H, Bitty Blossoms, Pierced Circles, Circles, Lavish Layers, Xpress It Triple Tac, Clear Rhinestones

My final card features the Letter A Die!  I've used a base of Chocolate Chip and layered with Blushing Bride and some Beautiful Blooms paper.  I've then added a piece of vellum and then I''ve added some hessian ribbon (burlap) around it.  To this I've added a rhinestone flourish. I've used Vintage Label to die cut some Blushing Bride, then used the Letter A Die to cut a piece of Chocolate Chip and glued it to the front.  Finally I've used Bitty Blossoms to cut the flower and finished with a rhinestone.

Stamps - None
Ink - None
Paper - ODBD Beautiful Blooms Paper Pad, Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride, Vellum
Accessories - ODBD Custom Dies: Letter A, Bitty Blossoms, Vintage Label, Clear Rhinestones Flourish, Clear Rhinestones

Birthday Fun!

Hello Everyone!!  Today we are having a peek at the February releases by ODBD and I've used The Giving Gift Box Die, All God's Blessings Stamp/Die Duo and A Gift For You die set!

For my first project, I'm using The Giving Gift Box Die to create the box and top panel along with some Birthday Bash Collection paper.  The fabby sentiment die is from A Gift For You and cut out of red card to make it pop!  The image is from All God's Blessings Stamp/Die Duo, so I've stamped the image in black onto blending card and coloured with Copics, die cut with the matching die and then added some dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops and popped it all up on foam tape.

Stamps - All God's Blessings Stamp/Die Duo
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - Birthday Bash Collection Paper, Cream, Red
Accessories - ODBD Dies: The Giving Gift Box, A Gift For You, All God's Blessings Stamp/Die Duo; Copics, Adhesives, Nuvo Crystal Drops - Buttermilk

Next I've made this fun party bag!  I've cut the bag base using the Card Caddy and Gift Bag Die Set and some cream card.  The topper has been cut using Birthday Bash Collection paper and the Gift Bag Handles and Topper Dies.  I've added a strip of blue topped with some Glitter Deco Tape for a bit of sparkle across the bottom.  Next I've stamped a couple of cupcakes from All God's Blessings and coloured with Copics - then stamped the bases onto some Birthday Bash paper, fussy cut and glued over the top and then adhered these to the bag front.  Finally, I've stamped the sentiment from the same set, die cut with Layered Lacy Ovals and then airbrushed with a bit of B41 Copic.

Stamps - All God's Blessings Stamp/Die Duo
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - ODBD Birthday Bash Collection, Cream, Marina Mist, X-press It Blending Card

Hello Everyone!  It's Birthday week in the Jones House with 4 close family birthdays in 5 days!  As you can imagine, there's a lot going on right now!  The first cab off the rank is my son Zac, who turned 16 this week!  16!  I can't believe he's getting so big (in fact he's 6 feet 1 inch now!) and now looking to get his learner driver permit!  EEEEEP!!!!  Of course that means that I was faced with the dreaded MAN CARD so I decided to make the 16 the feature of the card along with some fun sneaker and star paper.

I've used a base of Marina Mist, layered with River Rock and topped with Maja Designs Denim and Friends paper.  I've added another strip of Marina Mist across it and then created another panel of Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist and more Maja Designs paper.  Under this I've tucked a couple of notched tags in So Saffron and River Rock.  I've cut the star of So Saffron using a large star die and made the 16 out of River Rock using Large Number Dies - airbrushing a little Copic E84 while in the die for some shading.  I've cut the name using an old Spellbinders alphabet that would fit the space.

Stamps - NONE!
Ink - NONE
Paper - Maja Designs Denim and Friends, Marina Mist, River Rock, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Accessories - ODBD Large Number Dies, Spellbinders Star, Upper Case Font Alphabet

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp.....or die cut!  :)

It's Back To School Time

Hello Everyone!  It's that time again - the very first day of the new school year here in Australia!  My daughter is in Grade 5 this year and had to have a notebook for her classes ---- so we decided to decorate it a little bit so it won't get confused with anyone elses!!  (I think we achieved the aim!) LOL!

For this project, we've taken a Spirax notebook, covered it with some green spotty paper from my stash and stuck it down with some X-press It High Tack Double Sided Tape.  Then I've adhered some schoolish type paper also from my stash and put that in the middle.  We've added a little shine with some Gold Foil Deco Tape top and bottom of the middle panel.  Next I've taken some X-press It Adhesive Sheets, peeled off one side and stuck it to some Blending Card and die cut it with a Spellbinders Alphabet for the name.  Then I peeled off the other side of the Adhesive sheet and covered the letters with Scarlet Microfine Glitter and glued the letters to the top of the notebook.  Finally I die cut the Apple and A+ using ODBD's A+ Apples Dies.
I surprised Ally with a little extra decorating inside using Power Poppy's Small But Mighty Affirmations - I thought this sentiment was perfect!

Stamps - Small But Mighty Affirmations (Power Poppy)
Ink - Rhubarb Stalk, Dandelion
Paper - Random paper from my stash
Accessories - X-press It: Adhesive Sheets, Scarlet Microfine Glitter, Foil Deco Tape, High Take Double Sided Tape, 2in1 Glue, Clear Gel Glue, Blending Card; ODBD A+ Apples Dies, Spellbinders Alphabet Die

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)
