Fun with the Divinity Designs Release

Hello Everyone!!  Today the Divinity Divas are playing with the latest release by Divinity Designs!

I've used the Festive Favors Dies to cut the red base and then cut a piece of Birthday Bash Collection Paper to cover the front.  Once the paper is attached, I've used the circle die in the Festive Favors Die set to cut the circle opening.  I've cut a piece of cream card to layer the top flap and then attached some blue ribbon.  I've cut the tag (using Festive Favors again) out of white card and stamped the sentiment from Festive Favors Tag Sentiments and secured it with a blue button.  The balloons have also been cut using the dies from Festive Favors and glued to the front as shown.

Stamps - Festive Favors Tag Sentiments (DD)
Ink - Black
Paper - Divinity Designs Birthday Bash Collection, Red, White, Cream, Yellow, Blue, Kraft
Accessories - Divinity Designs Festive Favors Dies, Blue Ribbon, Blue Button, Twine

For my second project, I've been playing with Lemon Branch, one of the new stamp sets released this month.  I really wanted the image to take center stage, so the card itself is very clean and simple.  I've used a base of Kraft card and added a strip of green across the middle and topped that with some spotted Shabby Pastels paper.  I've stamped the image and sentiment from Lemon Branch onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've cut this out with Pierced Circles Dies and matted with yellow card cut with Large Banner Dies.

Stamps - Lemon Branch (DD)
Ink - Black
Paper - DD Shabby Pastels Paper Pad, X-press It Blending Card, Yellow, Green
Accessories - DD Dies: Pierced Circles, Large Banner; Glue

Thanks Mr Lindsay!

Hello Everyone!  This is a crazy time of year here in Australia, especially if you have children at school!  Not only are we preparing for Christmas, but it is also the end of the school year!  My daughter has just completed Year 5 (AND has been announced Strings Captain for 2019 - that is Captain of the Strings Orchestra at her school) and as a thank you, I made a card for her teacher that was big enough to fit a long gift voucher inside.

I've used a royal blue card, layered with white and topped with some blue and white striped paper.  The next layer is more blue topped with the reverse of the paper in blue stars.  To create the front, I've used Wavy Words for the top banner, Alphabet Flags Dies for the name banner and All-Star Jersey for, well, the Jersey!

I'm happy to say Mr Lindsay loved his card - particularly because he favourite football team is the AFL Kangaroos which are Blue and White colours and the jersey is striped!  :)  He was also very happy with the gift voucher!

Stamps - Wavy Words, All-Star Jersey (ODBD)
Paper - Blue, White, Maja Designs DP
Ink - Black
Accessories - ODBD Wavy Words Stamp/Die Duo, All-Star Jersey Stamp/Die Duo, Alphabet Flags Dies; Copics, X-press It Foam Tape

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

Christmas Greenery

Hello Everyone!  I've been playing with the latest goodies released by ODBD for December and it's all about Evergreens!  I started with one card, didn't like the direction it took and then ended up with two!!  I still can't decide which ones I prefer!  :)

I've used the Center Step Card Die to cut the blue base and the Center Step Layers to cut some Christmas Collection 2017 paper.  I've stamped the image from Peaceful Wishes in black ink, coloured with green Copics and then added a blue sky using Daydream ink and Sugared Lavender.  I've cut a gold star using Holy Night Die and cut the image out withe Pierced Ovals.  I've matted this with Layered Lacey Ovals, attached it to the front, stamped the sentiment at the bottom and added some sparkle to the trees.

Stamps: Peaceful Wishes
Paper : ODBD Christmas Collection 2017, blue, white, gold
Ink: Black, Daydream, Sugared Lavender
Accessories: ODBD Dies: Center Step Card, Center Step Layers, Holy Night, Pierced Ovals, Layered Lacey Ovals; glue, Kindyglitz

Next card I've used the Vintage Label Flip Fold Card Die to cut a piece of blue card and the Layers to cut some Winter Collection Paper.  For the front, I've used the larger Label dies to cut a piece of glitter paper and also some soft blue.  I've used Trees and Deer Dies to cut some trees out of green card.  The image from Peaceful Wishes has been stamped in black and I've added a watercolour effect using green ink and a watercolour brush.  I've used some Daydream ink to create the sky.  I've cut this with Double Pierced Vintage Labels and attached it to the front.  The inside panels have been cut out of green and white - also using Peaceful Wishes for the inside.  To finish I've added some clear rhinestones to the corners.

Stamps: Peaceful Wishes
Paper: ODBD Winter Collection, Blue, White, Glitter, Green
Ink: Black, Green, Daydream
Accessories: ODBD Dies: Vintage Label Flip Fold Card and Layers, Double Pierced Vintage Labels, Trees and Deer; Watercolour Brush, Clear Rhinestones

Peace on Earth

Hello Everyone!  It's December and that means another fun and fabulous release by Our Daily Bread Designs!!  Today I've been playing with a new rubber stamp set called Peaceful Wishes as well as two die sets - Double Pierced Vintage Labels and Vintage Label Flip Fold Card and Layers.  The Double Pierced Vintage Labels work perfectly with the Vintage Label Flip Fold Card (I've used the largest Pierced Label to go with the two larger Labels provided with the Vintage Label Flip Fold Die Set).  Not just that, but the Pierced version also perfectly matches up with Vintage Labels, Vintage Borders and Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies.  Happy Sigh!  I love matching things!!

I also love that ODBD are bringing out card dies that come with the matching layers all included in the ONE SET!!  Brilliant!

This card is really very easy to make!  Die cut the base of green card with the Vintage Label Flip Fold Card and Layers then use the layers dies to cut the panels with Christmas Collection 2018.  The Vintage Label Flip Fold Card and Layers comes with the two larger Vintage Labels for your 'Flip' panel and I've used those to cut a piece of Silver (it's actually quite shiny, see below picture) and some soft pink to match the patterned paper.  Next I've cut a piece of white using Double Pierced Vintage Labels, stamping the sentiment in Pigment White ink and embossing with silver embossing powder.  The image is from Peaceful Wishes (as is the sentiment) and I've stamped that in Bamboo Leaves, adding little touches of G43 Copic just to darken parts for a little extra contrast.  Finally I've airbrushed some BG000 Copic to the top for the sky.

The reverse side of the 'Flip', I've used the largest Vintage Label in the Vintage Label Flip Fold Card and Layers set to cut a piece of white and I've simply stamped the edge of the same image in a softer green (New Sprout), leaving the rest of the space for writing a Christmas message.

Stamps - Peaceful Wishes (ODBD)
Ink - Memento Bamboo Leaves, New Sprout, Unicorn White
Paper - ODBD Christmas Collection 2018, Green, White, Silver, Pink
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Vintage Label Flip Fold Card and Layers, Double Pierced Vintage Labels; Silver Embossing Power, Heat Gun, Airbrush and BG000 Copic, G43 Copic

You can find all sorts of inspiration at any of these locations -  the ODBD Blog, web pages, the ODBDGalleryFacebookPinterest and Instagram.

Frangipani Box

Hello Everyone!  Today I have a cute, quick giftbox to show you!  I work for a small family owned business and whenever anyone celebrates a birthday (there's only 10!), I make a little giftbox and fill it with a bag of chocolates to mark the occasion.  This month belongs to one of the girls who happens to love the colour purple......thus the deep purple Glorious Gable Box!  I thought it needed a little lift, so I've paired this up with a white Frangipani, leaves and some Ferns!  While the Frangipani was still in the die, I've airbrushed it with a light yellow Copic.  To finish I've added a yellow pearl for a touch of bling!

She loved it and loved the Raspberry and Dark Chocolate balls that went inside too!  :)

Stamps - NONE
Ink - NONE
Paper - Purple, White, Dark Green, Light Green
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Glorious Gable Box, Frangipani, Ferns; Airbrush, Y13 Copic, glue.

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

Thankful Poppies

Hello Everyone, today at 11am, we mark the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day.  A day to reflect on the sacrifice of so many called to fight for their countries.  The Great War, the War to End All Wars - sadly that is not the case and still the world continues it's battles and the men and women are still on the frontline, if not in the same manner of those from that time.  I think it is hard for most of us to imagine what life was like 100yrs ago, every family and community affected in some way and the wait for news - often months or years of waiting to hear what had happened to loved ones on the other side of the world.  We think of old portraits, faces of a different time and forget they they were once just young people who had dreams, played sport, had friends, sweethearts and a bright future.  In a small nation like Australia of roughly 5 million people, 62,000 were lost in WW1 here alone.  Our country and the world were never the same after WW1 and I pray that the we remember the saying..... Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.  Let's pray that we never see the world thrown into that sort of destructive turmoil again.


Today I finally have a card made with an image I coloured up a while ago.  This beautiful  image is called Perfect Poppies and is a digi image by Power Poppy.  I'd made the poppy image and sentiment from Perfect Poppies the size I wanted, printed it off and coloured it up with Copics. I had finished colouring it up and was carefully sponging the edges with some Antique Linen ink, when it turns out I was not so careful and managed to get a bit of ink on my hand and promptly transferred it to the edge of my finished piece.  GAH!!  So I covered it up with some Tea Bag ink and a stencil!  I finished it off with a fancy black frame and die cut a matching piece in white to create the card.  :)

This card is also suitable for this month's Power and Spark Challenge over at Power Poppy to make a Thank-You or Thanksgiving card - you can check all the details HERE!

Stamps - Perfect Poppies (Power Poppy)
Ink - Printer, Antique Linen, Tea Bag
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Black
Accessories - Copics, Stencil, Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two

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