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
