Basketball Fever!

Hello Everyone!!  Grab your bats, get ready to tee off, jump, spike and run.....we've got sports fever at Our Daily Bread Designs this month and we are cheering!  Whether you are into Golf, Soccer, Football, Baseball, Softball, Volleyball or Basketball, we've got you covered!  Today I'm showcasing two stamp sets and an extra die - Basketball (that comes with a matching die included in the set!), All- Star Jersey clear set and the fabulous matching die set, Sport Jerseys Dies.

I chose Basketball this month because that's what sport my 10yr old daughter plays!  Unlike her very undersized mother, she's the tallest girl in her team.....she obviously didn't get her height from me!  :) 

For my first card I've created a fun side step card using ODBD's Side Step Card Die to cut a piece of black card.  For the solid and spotted red panels I've used some Old Glory Paper Pad.  The lattice panel is created by cutting some white card using the Lattice Background Die and trimming it to size.  Next I stamped the basketball singlet and numbers from All-Star Jersey and the basketball and sentiments from the Basketball stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  The basketball has been die cut with the included die in Basketball set and the jersey and numbers die cut using the matching die in the Sport Jerseys Die Set.  The 'Love' sentiment has simply been trimmed to size and the word 'Basketball' cut with Pennant Flags Dies.  I've then either glued or popped up on foam tape the various elements as shown.

Stamps - Basketball, All-Star Jersey (ODBD)
Paper - ODBD Old Glory Paper Pad X-press It Blending Card, Black
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Sport Jerseys, Side Step Card, Lattice Background, Pennant Flags, Copics, X-press It Foam Tape

So why stop at one card when you can make TWO!

So I decided when I saw the piece of lattice left from my first card that it kind of looked like a net....a basketball net!!  Then I thought surely making a basketball net for the front of the card wouldn't be too hard....and what do you know, it wasn't!  :)

I've used a brown card base and layered with some solid red paper from Old Glory Paper Pad.  Around this I've attached two pieces of wide black ribbon.  Then I've used Double Stitched Rectangles for the backboard.  I've created the ring out of brown card and die cut it with two Stitched Ovals dies.  I've then taken the scrap of white cut with Lattice Background die from the previous card and trimmed it to a net shape.  I've then stamped the basketball from the Basketball Stamp and Die set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics and die cut it with the matching die also in the Basketball set.  Once I had the basketball, ring and net pieces I've put it all into place on the backboard and then drew in the black square with a black Copic Multiliner.  To finish I've stamped the sentiment from Basketball stamp and die set and cut into a notched flag.
