Precious Baby

Hello Everyone!  Here we are - Day FIVE of the Power Poppy Creative and Curious Release!  Finally ALL the sets are available to purchase RIGHT NOW!!  Before you run off to buy your favourite - today the Bloomies have two new clear sets to showcase!!  I'm using this super cute and totally fab new BABY set called Precious Baby!  It comes with three smaller images and sentiments for the latest edition to the family!  I thought this was rather apt considering today is my son's birthday and I'm remembering that little bundle of boy that arrived 13yrs ago!


I've used a base of blue, topped with cream and white and more blue cut with A2 Filigree Delight.  Around this are pieces of white and blue ribbons.  I've stamped this cut pea pod image from Precious Baby in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've cut this with the oval die from A2 Filigree Delight, matted with green cut with Elegant Ovals and matted again with cream cut with Labels 25.  I've popped this panel up on X-press It Foam Tape.  The sentiment is also from Precious Baby, die cut with Large Circles and airbrushed with YG23 Copic and also popped up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a blue bow!

Cheerful Columbine


Hello Everyone!!  It's Day Four of the fabulous new Power Poppy Release!!  Today we have three new sets to sneak peek and I'm using a new clear set called Cheerful Columbine!  This big, bold image is a lot of fun to colour and of course you don't have to use the whole image - it's perfect for cropping too!

I've used an aqua base and topped it with brown spotty paper matted with dark purple card.  Around this I've added hessian ribbon and green satin ribbon.  The image and sentiment from Cheerful Columbine has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with a whole range of Copics!  :)  I've cut this out with a stitched rectangle die and matted with more of the dark purple card and popped the whole thing up on X-press It Foam Tape.  To finish I've add a few drops of silver crystal drops.

Always Here


Hello Everyone!  It's sneak peek week at Power Poppy and there are an AMAZING ELEVEN brand new sets!!  Today I'm using Always Here and I've decided to take the large image and cut it up into three small squares to create a different look! 



I've gone with a light and fresh feel using a base of white and layering with aqua card and topping with embossed white.  Next I've stamped the large image from Always Here in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and then cut three squares of it to showcase various parts.  I've coloured each of these with Copics and then die cut the trio square strip of white card and matted it with aqua card.  The sentiment is also from Always Here, stamped in black and then die cut with a stitched tag die and put under the long panel.  To finish I've added three rhinestones to the corner.

For the Coffee Lovers!


Hello Everyone!  Today the Bread Basket are playing with the latest release stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs!  This month, I've been playing with all things COFFEE!!  There's a new fun Stamp and Die Duo Set called Hug in a Mug!  Full of super cute coffee themed sentiments and two awesome coffee cup images with MATCHING DIES all included!!  I'm loving the duo sets!

My first card has a cream base, a light brown layer, more cream and then a panel of dark paper from Latte Love paper pad.......yeppers, ODBD has coffee themed paper as well!!!  I've then added a patterned paper layer using Latte Love, a panel of dark brown and then another panel of the patterned paper.  The two rectangular panels have been cut using Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  The sentiment and coffee cup from Hug in a Mug have been stamped in black, I've coloured the cup with Copics and cut the sentiment out with Double Stitched Circles Dies.  To finish I've added a couple of buttons.

Stamps - Hug in a Mug Stamp/Die Duo
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - ODBD Latte Love Paper Pad, Cream, Brown
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Double Stitched Rectangles, Double Stitched Circles, Hug in a Mug Stamp/Die Duo, Copics, Hessian Ribbon, Buttons, X-press It Foam Tape



My second project is actually a Gift Bag without the handles!  I really wanted a box rather than bag and this was perfect!  I've used Card Caddy and Gift Bag Dies to cut panels of cream.  I've added a horizontal strip of burnt orange from Latte Love.  Next I've die cut the patterned paper with Double Stitched Rectangles and matted with dark brown.  Around this I've added some hessian (burlap) ribbon.  The sentiment and coffee cup from Hug in a Mug have been stamped in Rich Cocoa and I've used some Latte Love paper on the coffee cup instead of colouring it this time for a different look than the one above.  The sentiment has been cut out with Double Stitched Circles Die and then popped up on foam tape.

Tag Trio!


Hello Everyone! This month ODBD released a cute die set called Mini Cups and Mugs and it is so much fun!!  These tiny little dies are perfect for little accents or tags and have so many mix and match bits that I decided to make a set of tags with them!

For all three tags I've used the same die sets - Mini Cups and Mugs, Rounded Rectangles, Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles, Pierced Circles and Pennant Flags - and then used different paper for each one.  I've kept the circles blank so I can write the name on them when required!


The first one is a bit more masculine with a coffee theme, matching it up with Latte Love Paper Pad.


The second one, I've gone more girly/ teen with pinks and teals and created a thickshake/milkshake diecut accent.  You can't really see in this picture, but the top of the cup I've used the ice-cream/cream top and then cut the cup lid out of vellum to make the clear cup lid.  The paper on this tag is from Beautiful Blooms!


The last one, I've gone with a Teacup Theme with a more elegant feel.  I was thinking of my mother who gathers with her friends each week for morning tea and they get out their lovely china cups and saucers.  Mum has some beautiful cup, plate and saucer sets so I've used some pretty Shabby Rose paper to create the cup and saucer and silver paper for the spoon.

Stamps - NONE
Ink - NONE
Paper - Latte Love, Beautiful Blooms, Shabby Rose, Cream, Pink, Green, Brown, White
Accessories - Rounded Rectangles, Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles, Pierced Circles, Pennant Flags, Mini Cups and Mugs

To The World....



Hello Everyone!  As you know Mother's Day is fast approaching so it's time to get cracking on those cards!  Today I've been playing with a new set by ODBD called The Greatest Gift which is full of sentiments perfect for mothers!  It also has these sweet decorative butterfly stamps and matching dies (included in the set) in three sizes (the ones I used are the smallest.  :)

I really love this sentiment because it is SO TRUE!!  When you are a small child, of course your mother really is your world (sigh, I remember when my kids used to look at me like that!),  then you grow up and realise that the world is a big place, but the older you get the more you realise how much your Mum (or Mom) really is your world forever.  Can you tell I really love my Mum?!  :)

I've matched The Greatest Gift Stamp/Die Duo with some cream and dusty pink card and two pieces of this lovely paper called Romantic Roses Paper Pad, some pinkish ink and sparkle in the form of Glitter Deco Tape and some rhinestones!  The sentiment is diecut with Double Stitched Squares also from ODBD!

Stamps - The Greatest Gift (ODBD)
Paper - ODBD Romantic Roses Paper Pad, Cream, Sweet Sugarplum
Ink - Purple Wine
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Double Stitched Squares, The Greatest Gift Dies (Butterflies), X-press It Glitter Deco Tape (mermaid tones), Rhinestones, X-press It Foam Tape

Beachy Tote and Pocketbook


Hello Everyone!  If you've been following my blog you'll know that ODBD have released some gabby new dies this month - Timeless Tote, Timeless Tote Layers and Petite Pocketbook.  Well I'd been playing around in my craft room and even though it's *supposed* to be Autumn here in Australia, we had such a hot week that it felt like Summer, which made me think that I could make the Timeless Tote into a Beach Bag!  I went digging into my paper and found ODBD's By The Shore Collection and used the surfboard paper with it's bold, bright colours and cut that with the Timeless Tote Layers.  The sentiment is from Aloha stamp set and for those of us not familiar with Hawaiian language, this means Happy Birthday - how fun is that!  To accent and add even more POP, I created a flower with Hibiscus Die and Tropical Leaves Die.


Due to the size of the surfboards on the paper, I couldn't really make a matching Petite Pocketbook without chopping them into tiny pieces.  I've used the 'sand' paper that was at the bottom of the surfboard paper and matched it with this super cute palm tree paper from By The Shore Collection.  I've finished it with a decorative brad.



Both the Tote and the Pocketbook have been created from Kraft Cardstock to give a nice natural/beachy feel.  :)

Stamps - Aloha (ODBD)
Ink - Versafine Black
Paper - ODBD By The Shore, Kraft, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Timeless Tote, Tote Layers, Petite Pocketbook, Hibiscus, Tropical Leaves; Decorative Brad, X-press It High Tack Tape, X-press It Clear Gel Glue

Rosy Tote!


Hello Everyone!  Today I'm playing with the new Timeless Tote and Timeless Tote Layers Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs!  I seriously love these dies and I love the finished results!

I decided to go with a pretty rose theme using ODBD's Shabby Rose Collection and matched it up with cream card and a bit of Blushing Bride. I've used the cream card to cut the base pieces and some silver card for the buckle pieces using Timeless Tote.  I've used the Timeless Tote Layers Dies to cut all the Shabby Rose pieces and the Blushing Bride pieces for the handles.

For those who've asked the measurements are 5 inches across and 6 inches high to the top of the handles so it's such a great size and I'm sure I'll have another one of these made very soon!!

You can check out more inspiration at the ODBD BlogFacebook and Instagram!

Happy 10th Birthday!


Hello Everyone! My daughter had a birthday party recently and imagine my shock when I realised I had NO BOY CARDS in my stash!  Seriously, how did I let that happen?  Anyway, thank goodness for these Large Number Dies by ODBD because they make it really easy to make a super quick card. They also make it sooooo easy to create the dreaded Man Card!!  :)

I've used a white base and layered with Marina Mist and topped with some fabby Maja Designs Denim and Friends paper.  I've added a piece of grosgrain ribbon down the middle.  I've added another strip of Marina Mist across the top and then cut a piece of River Rock with a stitched flag die and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape.  I've then used some Star Spellbinders dies to create the white and yellow stars.  Finally I've used Large Number Dies to cut the '10' and airbrushed it with some B95 Copic while still in the die.

Black and White Wedding



Hello Everyone!  A friend of mine recently asked if I could make her a card for a wedding she was attending using a black and white theme.  This is the finished result using a mixture of products from different companies.  I'm really happy with the final result and she loved it too!  I have another one to make for her soon with a completely different style, so I might have another one for you in a couple of weeks.  :)

The base is white and I've layered with a piece of black cut with Romantic Rectangles.  I've layered this with silver (it's actually quite shiny but didn't photograph well) and some Wedding Wishes paper.  Around these layers I've added some white ribbon topped with ruffled silver ribbon and some silver cord.  I've stamped the peony and leaves from Peony Muse in Grey Flannel ink onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copies - N0, N1, N3, N5 - and then die cut with the matching Peony Muse Co-ordinating Dies.  I've popped these up on X-press It Foam Tape.  To finish I've cut some black card with Leaves and Branches Die and Mr and Mrs Die.

Bunny and Notebook!



Hello Everyone!!  I've got a couple of new creations using the latest products from Our Daily Bread Designs for you today!!

My first is a fun birthday card using the Hoppy Birthday stamp set - I've stamped the bunny image and sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, R00, G40, G43, G46, G28, Y11, Y15, BV17, B0000, B000, B00).  I've cut this out with Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I've then used the two biggest dies from the same set to create a frame of white for the edge.  The patterned paper and soft green paper underneath come from Romantic Roses Collection Paper.

Paper - ODBD Romantic Roses Collection Paper, X-press It Blending Card, White

My next project is a fun notebook just for ME!!  I've used two pieces of paper from Beautiful Blooms to make the paper big enough to go around this Spirax Notebook and across the join I've added a piece of pink ribbon.  I've used the Letter K and the Letter J Dies to die cut some Blushing Bride card and while still in the die I've airbrushed R83 Copic.  I've then cut some cream card using Double Stitched Rectangles and Lavish Layers.  While the Double Stitched Rectangle die was still on the piece of card, I've airbrushed some E84 Copic onto it and then glued to the other die cut.  Then I've added the letters on the top and affixed to the front of the notebook.  Finally I've added some big rhinestones to the top corner for a bit of bling!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sixteen!


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

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!  :)

Grateful


Hello Everyone!  Today we are having a peek back at the latest release by ODBD!  I just love this stamp and die combo called Hello Friend with it's variety of useful sentiments for all occasions!!  I also love this awesome Card Caddy and Gift Bag Die released last month and just can't stop using it!  :)

I've used cream card to create the bag and handles using Card Caddy and Gift Bag Dies.  I've then cut two rectangles using the pretty new Romantic Roses Paper Pad.  I've then used Gift Bag Handles and Topper Dies to cut the solid paper to create the topper on the bag.  I've stamped the flowers, buds, leaves and sentiment from Hello Friend onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured the images with Copics (RV000, RV91, RV93, RV95, Y21, G40, G43, G46).  I've die cut these with the matching dies from Hello Friend and attached as shown.  I've die cut the sentiment (which is two separate sentiments that match together) with Double Stitched Circles Dies and popped it up on foam tape.
