Cabbage and Kale


Hello Everyone!  It's Day 4 and RELEASE DAY for the latest Power Poppy release!!  Yippee!!  Today our last set takes us on a trip to the garden to pick some Cabbage and Kale!


These beautiful ornamental veges can be coloured in a variety of colours - check out this inspiration piece!

I've gone with traditional yellow/green cabbages - although for some reason I couldn't get Peter Rabbit out of my head!  LOL!!

I've used a green base, layered with yellow and then some fun peapod paper that I found in my stash!  On top of that I've cut a piece of green card using Scribble Circle Large die.  I've stamped three cabbages from Cabbage and Kale in a row onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics, cut into a strip and matted with kraft card.  Tucked under this is the sentiment, also from Cabbage and Kale and cut with Labels 40 die.  To finish I've added a few brown buttons.

Musical September!

Hello Everyone!  ODBD has been musical through the month of September and today I have a couple of projects made with the latest goodies that have been released!  Now I'm not particulary musical myself, although my 11yr old daughter is involved with all things music at school.  Through the years she's been learning viola with Mr Hoey and involved in (firstly) Junior Choir and (now) Senior Choir as well as in the school musical (with Mrs Hooper) which is being presented tonight!!  So with all that said, I'm sure the names on the projects today make a little more sense!!  :)

So what ODBD products have I used today??  For the card I've used the fantastic Notable Notes Paper Pad (for the music paper and that pop of purple) and paired it up with Alphabet Flags (eeeep - how COOL are they!!) and Musical Notes dies.  To get that sparkly bunting was really easy - I've stuck some Glitter Deco Tape to some white card and then die cut the flags as normal.  Glue the glitter panels to some plain white flags and you're done! This was actually a pretty easy card to make!

Stamps - None!
Ink - None!
Paper - ODBD Notable Notes Paper Pad, Black, White
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Alphabet Flags, Musical Notes; X-press It Glitter Deco Tape Gold 25mm, Glue


There's bit more involved in the Gift Bag and many more products used but I liked the finished project!  :)

I started with the Card Caddy and Gift Bag die set to create the bag.  The the Gift Bag Handles and Topper dies for the scalloped topper (which I then layered because I can't help myself!).  I've used Pierced Rectangles for the front panel and topped it and the topper with Notable Notes Paper Pad.  Next I created the name using Alphabet Flags adding a little bakers twine.  Next I stamped the instrument and sentiment from Marvelous Things in Delicata sparkly black ink, fussy cutting the instrument and creating an pennant for the sentiment.  I've added these to a Pierced Circles layer.  Finally I've added a music note to the top using Musical Notes dies.

Stamps - Marvelous Things (ODBD)
Ink - Delicata Black
Paper - ODBD Notable Notes Paper Pad, Blue, White, Black
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Card Caddy and Gift Bag, Gift Bag Handles and Topper, Pierced Rectangles, Pierced Circles, Alphabet Flags, Musical Notes; Baker's Twine, X-press It Foam Tape, Glue

O Hoppy Day!


Hello Everyone!!  It's Day 2 of the Power Poppy Release and this time it's all about Hops and Beer!!  Meet O Hoppy Day and it's perfect for the all those dreaded Man Cards!!  :)

I've used a base of River Rock and layered with So Saffron and topped with some Maja Designs DP.  Next I've added a strip of So Saffron and topped with more Maja Designs DP.  I've stamped this awesome beer glass and hops image from O Hoppy Day in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers.  I've cut this with circle nestabilities and matted with River Rock cut with a larger circle die.  I've also cut some pennants with Pennant Flags Dies to pop underneath the circle panel.  Finally I've stamped the sentiment onto white card, die cut with Ribbon Banners and airbrushed a little Y32 while it was still in the die.

Stamps - O Hoppy Day (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, So Saffron, River Rock, Maja Designs Denim Friends DP

Chrysanthemum XL



Hello Everyone!!  Guess what?!  It's time for a brand new Power Poppy Release!!  WOOHOO!!  Today the Bloom Brigade are previewing a new HUGE flower called Chrysanthemum XL!  This beautiful big bloom is just begging to be coloured up!

I decided to step out of the box and colour this up in purples instead of Fall colours - probably because we are going into Spring here in Australia (Yippeee!!) and enjoying the warmer Spring weather.  :)

I've stamped Chrysanthemum XL onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it up with Copics.  I've cut it to size and matted with some cream card then attached some neutral glitter tape across the bottom and attached it to a purple base card.  I've stamped the sentiment and petal accent onto the blending card, coloured with Copics and die cut with Labels 33 and airbrushed a little E42 while it was still in the die.  I've popped this up on X-press It Foam Tape and finished with a few Chocolate Pearls.

Stamps - Chrysanthemum XL (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Cream, Purple
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Labels 33, X-press It Deco Glitter Tape, X-press It Foam Tape, Kaisercraft Chocolate Pearls

Then Sings My Soul



Hello Everyone!  It's the beginning of the month and that means it's time for a brand new release from Our Daily Bread Designs and this month it's all about MUSIC!!  Music is one thing that can really touch the soul, make you smile, make you cry, make you reminisce!  I was never particularly musical, but it seems my primary school aged daughter has been blessed with this talent, singing in choir and learning to play the viola (the bigger version of a violin).  It's been wonderful to see her progress!

This month, be inspired by music with new stamps and dies from ODBD!!  I've used Marvelous Things stamp set, Musical Notes Dies and Notable Notes Paper Pad!

I've used a base of white card layered with the solid paper from Notable Notes Paper Pad cut with Pierced Rectangles dies.  This is topped with more Notable Notes Paper Pad paper.  I've stamped the saxophone image from Marvelous Things in gold ink onto white card and cut into a notched tag and cut another tag out of more Notable Notes paper.  I've added these two pieces to the top and then added some glitter deco tape across the top.  The sentiment is also from Marvelous Things, stamped in black, trimmed and matted with more Notable Notes paper.  Finally I've cut some black cut using the Musical Notes Dies and attached as shown!

The Breadsticks have some wonderful projects to share with you today and you can find them on the ODBD Blog, web pages, ODBD Gallery, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you enjoy all the creations using the new release and are inspired to stamp!  :)

Found Mushrooms


Hello Everyone!  It's Good Vibe Friday over at Power Poppy and today I've been using one of the newest Power Poppy clear stamps called Wild Mushrooms!  There was something about these Pinwheel Mushrooms that got me - they are just so pretty and delicate and I can just imagine some fairies hanging out underneath!

I've used a base of brown card (trying to keep with an earthy theme) and layered with some River Rock and topped with a piece of Graphic 45 DP.  Down one side I've added a piece of cream card topped with hessian ribbon (burlap).  I've stamped the mushrooms from Wild Mushrooms in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've cut them out with Small Ovals dies and layered with River Rock cut with Large Ovals dies and popped it up on foam tape.  I've stamped the sentiment onto a leftover piece of blending card and cut into a notched tag.  To finish I've added a couple of rustic-y type buttons.

Stamps - Wild Mushrooms (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Cream, Graphic 45 DP
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Large and Small Oval Nestabilities, X-press It Foam Tape, Hessian Ribbon, Scissors, Buttons

Deep Breath


Hello Everyone!!  It's Power Poppy Friday and I'm kicking off the weekend with a peaceful card for you using a new digi stamp by Power Poppy called Take A Deep Breath.  I love this serene image and that sentiment is just perfect with it!

I've printed the image and sentiment from Take A Deep Breath on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've die cut this with Pierced Rectangles and then added a little sparkle across the bottom with some Glitter Deco Tape.  The card base is made of purple card layered with white, some soft pretty paper and another layer of white punched with Threading Water border punch (rather apt I thought).

Stamps - Take A Deep Breath (Power Poppy)
Ink - Printer
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Wisteria Wonder, White, MFT Watercolor Wash DP
Accessories - Copics, ODBD Pierced Rectangles Die, Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch, X-press It Glitter Deco Tape

Get Well Soon!


Hello Everyone!  Having a little look back at the August release by Our Daily Bread Designs with some fabulous stamps and dies perfect for Get Well Cards!  I was particularly intrigued by this Crutch Die - as someone who ended up on crutches less than 2yrs ago, I totally relate to how it feels to receive a little kindness in the mail.

For my first card I used the Side Step Card Die to cut some cream card and then the Side Step Layers to cut pieces of Shabby Pastels Paper Pad.  To create the accent pieces, I've used the Crutch Die and Bandages Dies.  The sentiments have been stamped using the new Get Well Wishes stamp set and die cut with Pennant Flags die.

Stamps - Get Well Wishes (ODBD)
Ink - Sugared Lavender, Antique Linen
Paper - ODBD Shabby Pastels Paper Pad, Cream, Silver
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Side Step Card, Side Step Layers, Crutch, Bandages, Pennant Flags


My second project I've used a base of blue, die cut some cream with Lavish Layers, added another layer of blue card, more cream cut with Lavish Layers and topped with a piece of Old Glory Paper.  I've stamped the sentiment from Get Well Wishes onto cream card and die cut with Pennant Flags die.  I've die cut cream and silver card using the Crutch Die to make a pair of crutches, using the cream pieces for the armrests, handles and stopped bottoms.  To finish I've accented with some enamel dots.

Stamps - Get Well Wishes (ODBD)
Ink - Daydream
Paper - ODBD Old Glory Paper; cream, blue
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Lavish Layers, Pennant Flags, Crutch; enamel dots

The Breadsticks have some wonderful projects to share with you today and you can find them on the ODBD blog, web pages, ODBD Gallery, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.
