Amaryllis Bliss

Hello Everyone!!  It's the final day of the Power Poppy sneak peeks and that means that it's RELEASE DAY and you can grab them in the store right now!  Today the Bloomies are showcasing the last set in the release and isn't it a beauty ---- Amaryllis Bliss!!  With three beautiful blooms with mix and match greenery and sentiments, its a showstopper for sure!

I've let these flowers do all the talking by stamping the blooms and greenery from Amaryllis Bliss onto X-press It Blending Card and colouring with Copics then carefully stamping the sentiment at the bottom.  I've cut the edge with a curved scallop die and matted with some striped paper, vanilla card and a cherry cobbler base.  To finish I've added a little sparkly bling!

Woods and Snuggle

Hello Everyone!  It's the third day of the Power Poppy Sneak Peeks for the Happiest Holidays 2018 Collection!!  Today the Bloomies are showcasing TWO new stamp sets - Through the Woods and Snuggle Down!  As you would imagine, Through the Woods is full of earthy and wood themed images, elements and sentiments.  Snuggle Down on the other hand is all warm and cozy with blankets, thermoses and elements to make your own plaid!  You will see that I've combined both sets to create my card today.  :)

The base is made of old olive and layered with vanilla and then some Wonderland paper.  Next I have a piece of green border punched with Woodland Branch.  I've topped this with kraft and a piece of vanilla that I've made into a plaid print using three of the elements from Snuggle Down.  I've stamped the wood frame from Through the Woods stamped with Memento Black.  It the middle I've stamped the sentiment from Through the Woods in Spruce Ink.  I've coloured the image with Copics and die cut with Double Stitched Squares, then matted with Old Olive and Kraft card.  To finish I've added a few pewter pearls to the top corner.

Heart be Light

Hello Everyone!  Today I'm thrilled to sneak peek another of Power Poppy's new Happiest Holiday 2018 release and this gorgeous set is called Let Your Heart Be Light!  This set is so versatile!  Use the top border only, or the bottom border only, add a glow (or not) or put a sentiment in between....the choice is yours!!  The floral images are 4.5 inches wide so will fill the front of a standard sized card if you desire!

I've used the top and bottom borders, one of the sentiments in between as well as the top and bottom 'glow' stamps from Let Your Heart Be Light!  I just love this set.....soooooooo pretty!!  I've stamped the borders in grey, the sentiment in black and the glows in yellow - all on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've then cut this with Labels 25.  I've created the base (6.5 x 4.5 inches) of plain white card and then cut a piece of pink the same size - then used the largest Majestic Labels 25 die to cut the pink panel.  I've glued this to the top and then attached the feature panel into the middle of the card.  To finish I've accented with clear rhinestones as shown.

Stamps - Let Your Heart Be Light (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Pink

Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Labels 25, Majestic Labels 25; Clear Rhinestones

Christmas Corgis

Hello Everyone!  Hope you are already for lots of fun because today is Day 1 of the brand new Power Poppy Happiest Holidays 2018 Release!!!  Get ready to squeal, because the first cab off the rank is CHRISTMAS CORGIS!!!!  It's puppy fever and Christmas all rolled into one with this super cute set inspired by Ms Marc's very own Mr Tibbs!

Now I just couldn't go past the 'Merry Corgmas' (I totally laughed out loud when I saw it) and stamped in with the reindeer antlered corgi jumping over the top onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (I used a mix of E11, E13, YR23, YR27 and C5 to create the coat and some W1 for some shading on the paws).  I've cut this out with Large Circles and sponged some green and blue inks while it was still in the die.  This has been matted with vanilla card cut with Stately Circles.  The base has been made with kraft card topped with vanilla and two pieces of Kaisercraft Wonderland paper and I've added some wide ivory ribbon across the join.  I've popped my Christmas Corgi image up on foam tape and finished with some rhinestones for some seasonal sparkle!

Stamps - Christmas Corgis (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Kraft, Vanilla, Kaisercraft Wonderland DP

Diorama Delights!

Hello Everyone!  Today the Breadsticks are having a play with all the latest release goodies from Our Daily Bread Designs and wasn't it a fun month with the new Diorama Dies!!  This set came with the base and layers all in one set so the card was made in a snap!!  Add to that a selection of border dies to create scenes in the diorama and you have a bunch of fun!

For my first card I used the Diorama With Layers Dies and matching Neighborhood Border die and Cloud Borders dies to create my scene.  I cut many of the Neighborhood Borders out of different colours and then cut and patched together to make a charming cottage theme.  Now I could have made it in a Snowy Christmas theme, but it's Summer and HOT here in Australia at this time of year, so green I left it!  I've paired this with some funky plaid paper from the Christmas Collection 2017 paper, a poinsettia created with Peaceful Poinsettias dies and the sentiment from Great Joy stamped onto a die cut made with Pennant Flags!

Stamps - Great Joy - sentiment (ODBD)
Paper - ODBD Christmas Collection 2017, Cream, White, Red, Green, Kraft, Yellow
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - ODBD Dies: Diorama and Layers, Neighborhood Border, Cloud Borders, Peaceful Poinsettias, Pennant Flags; Glue

For my second Diorama With Layers card, I let the diorama inside stay more subtle by using the silhouette image from Holy Night in black and only let the star glow in silver.  I've kept the card a deep blue, adding white "stars" to the background and some beautiful silver paper from Winter Collection for the front.  I've left my Wisemen from Great Joy to shine in this card by stamping in Memento Black onto X-press It Blending Card and colouring with Copic Markers and diecutting with the matching die from Great Joy.  I've actually also used the die to cut a plain piece of card to adhere behind the Wisemen to make them nice and sturdy.  Finally I've used the sentiment from the same set and die cut with Pennant Flags and adhered that to the top.

Stamps - Great Joy (ODBD)
Paper - ODBD Winter Collection, Blue, Black, X-press It Blending Card

ODBD Sneaky Peek Pre-Order!

Hello Everyone!!  Can you  believe it's the middle of October already??  That means it's time to start cranking out those Christmas cards and gifts so you aren't madly making them the week before Christmas!  To get you in the spirit of the season, Our Daily Bread Designs are having a November Release Pre-Order Special.  You can read all about it on the ODBD Blog and there you'll find links to all the wonderful creations the Bread Basket have made to inspire you!

I'm using the Poinsettia Bundle for my project today, in particular the Joyful Christmas Stamp/Die Duo and the lovely new Christmas Collection 2018 paper!  I've paired this up with the Luminous Lantern Die and Fancy Circles Die to create a festive luminary lantern.  I've die cut some mint green card with Luminous Lantern Die and adhered together.  I've then created a band around the bottom using the new Christmas Collection 2018 paper. Next I've stamped the Poinsettia image from Joyful Christmas Stamp/Die Duo in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics and then die cut with the matching die.  I've stamped the sentiment from Joyful Christmas in black and die cut with Fancy Circles Die and adhered as shown.  (A fun tip - the paper I've used is a perfect match for Copic R20 which I've used to airbrush the sentiment!)  To finish I've added a red checked ribbon to close the top of the lantern.

Because this is a Pre-Order special, the stamps, dies and papers can only be ordered in bundles at this time.  You can read all about it and see many more beautiful projects to inspire on the ODBD Blog, Web Pages, the ODBD GalleryFacebookPinterest and Instagram.

Thanks for popping by and hope you enjoy the sneak peek, getting a little festive and inspired to stamp!

ODBD October Release

Hello Everyone!  It's the beginning of a new month and that means it's time for a brand new release from Our Daily Bread Designs.  This month I have a few fabulous projects to play with..... Diorama With Layers Dies, Neighborhood Border Die, Cloud Borders Dies and Great Joy Stamp/Die Duo!!  How much fun are they!!  The Diorama cards are soooooooo fun to make and they fold down to a US size A6 envelope (which are also available at ODBD!).  Imagine all the scenes you could create with that!!

I've made the Diorama base out of green card and then layered with Christmas Collection 2017 paper.  I've cut white card with the Fence die and Cloud Borders dies.  I've cut several colours of card using the Neighborhood Border die and then cut and pieced the pieces together to create the scene inside.

Dies - Diorama with Layers, Cloud Borders, Neighborhood Border, Fence
Paper - Christmas Collection 2017, White, Green

For my second project I reached for The Giving Gift Box dies and cut some cream card to construct the box.  Next I've stamped the Wisemen from Great Joy Stamp/Die Duo in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card, coloured with Copics and then die cut with the matching die.  I've stamped the sentiment, also from Great Joy onto white card and die cut with Pennant Flags die.  Finally I had to have the Wisemen follow a star, so I've die cut one using the star from Holy Night Dies.

Stamps - Great Joy (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Cream, Gold
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - ODBD Dies: The Giving Gift Box, Holy Night, Pennant Flags Die; Copics, X-press It Foam Tape
