ODBDSLC284 "I Am the Resurrection and the Life"

Hi Friends! 

It’s not too late to join us for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light ODBDSLC284 “Anything Goes with ODBD” Challenge!  This month we want to see your creations using at least one Our Daily Bread Designs products (stamps, dies, paper from ODBD, Northcoast Creations or Artistic Outpost).

I decided to create another card showcasing the March 2017 ODBD Release stamp set Daffodils, coordinating Daffodil Die and the new Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies along with the previously released Pierced Rectangles Dies.

If you have not visited the rest of my ODBD Design Team Sisters’ blogs and checked out their fabulous projects yet, I hope you will find time to do so:


To create this card:

1). Using the Pierced Rectangles Dies, die cut and emboss a piece of bright green cardstock, mount onto the white card base.

2). Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the largest die from the Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies, mount onto the card front.

3). Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock using the medium die from the Pierced Rectangles Dies, ink and stamp the sentiment from Daffodils using archival black ink and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

4). Ink the Daffodils floral image with archival black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and watercolor with water based markers.  Die cut with the coordinating Daffodils Die and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

5). Add a few pearls to finish off the card.

Don’t forget- you have until April 2, 2017 to join us for a chance to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light award or to win a $15 ODBD gift certificate (one random participant will be chosen).  

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!  We hope you will be able to join us for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light ODBDSLC284 “Anything Goes with ODBD ” Challenge!

Pretty Potted Florals Birthday



Hi Friends!


This card was so much fun to design and create! I will be linking this card to the Seize the Birthday Challenge as well as the Flower Challenge #6 "Anything Goes" Challenge

 If you have not had a chance to visit the challenge sites yet, I hope you will find time to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!


To create this card:

1). Ink the Pretty Potted Florals image using archival black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, heat set with a heat tool before coloring with alcohol and water based markers.  Die cut the panel with a stitched die and mount onto black cardstock.

2). Use a stencil brush to apply tumbled glass distress ink with a flourish stencil to a piece of white cardstock, layer onto black cardstock and add the designer paper layer.

3). Heat emboss the sentiment from Long Stem Silhouettes with white embossing powder onto black cardstock, layer the floral image along with the sentiment using dimensional foam.

4). Use a Sharpie Extra Fine White Paint Pen to add highlights to the flower center and finish off the card by adding shimmer to the petals with a clear glitter pen.


Thanks again for taking the time to visit, I hope I have inspired you and that you will stop by again soon- hugs and have a blessed week, sweet friends!




Ez 34:26 I will Send Down Showers




Hi Friends!  


I had fun this past weekend creating another card using the Our Daily Bread Designs God’s Blessings Coloring Pages from March 2017 Release along with the Pierced Rectangles Dies.

I decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers' CC626 Color Challenge into the designs coloring the image with watercolor pencils, water soluble graphic pencils, water based markers, an extra fine white paint pen and finished off with a bit of shimmer using a clear glitter pen.

I used the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies to create the mat and finished off the card by layering onto black and white cardstock.

Don't you just love how versatile the God’s Blessings Coloring Pages are for card making, Bible Art Journaling, Home Décor Projects and more?  So relaxing to color and fun!!

If you have any questions, please let me know- this was a quick and easy project for sure :-)


Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and I hope you have a blessed week, sweet friends!

Paris in the Spring


Hi Friends!   

I had a chance to create another card using images from the Eiffel Collage and Grunge Elements stamps sets at Artistic Outpost along with ODBD Custom Dies -Circles and Pierced Circles  (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).



If you have not had a chance to visit The Artistic Outpost Blog or the Just Add Ink site  yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from the Artistic Outpost Design Team on the AO Blog as well as the JAI Challenge galleries!

To create this card:

1). Ink the Eiffel Collage background stamp with archival black ink and stamp onto two pieces of white cardstock.

2). Fussy cut around the jagged edge of one of the stamped Eiffel Collage images and watercolor both images with water based markers.

 3). Split the fussy-cut Eiffel Collage panel into three sections, distress the outside edges with a distressing tool, mount onto black cardstock , trimming close to the edge.  ***FYI** Here is a little secret- originally I had planned on using just this panel but the girl’s face was split and it did not look “right” to me so the next few steps were what I took to fix the card...Now you know- lol!!

4). Use the Circle Dies to die cut out the image of the girl with the doves on the ledge, mount onto a piece of black cardstock that was die cut and embossed with the Pierced Circle Dies.

5). Use a sponge to apply vintage photo distress ink over the split panel and die cut image to “age” the paper.  To add additional distressing, splash a bit of water with your fingers onto the background panel and heat set with a heat tool.

6). On a white card base, sponge vintage photo distress ink over the edges and stamp the large splatter stamp from Grunge Elements using black soot distress ink.  Mount the background panel directly to the card front.

7). Add the die cut girl image to the card front with dimensional foam.

8). To finish off the card,  use a clear glitter pen to apply shimmer to the Eiffel Tower and flowers and an extra fine white paint pen to add highlights to the flowers.

I had fun experimenting with this card and I hope I have inspired you as well.  

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

Tulips Side Step Card


Hi Friends!  

I hope all of you are having a great week so far! I had another chance to create a card this week using the Our Daily Bread Designs March 2017 Release stamp set, Tulips along with the Tulip Die, Side Step Die and previously released Custom Dies- Small Bow and Pierced Rectangles.

I love to play along with online challenges and incorporated the Splitcoaststampers CC624 Color Challenge as well as the {PIN}spirational #186 Inspiration Challenge and #thedailymarker30day challenge into the design.

If you have not had a chance to visit the ODBD Blog yet or the other challenge sites yet, I would encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all! 

To create this card:

1). Die cut a piece of green cardstock using the Side Step Die, score and fold the card base.

2). Ink the sentiment from Tulips stamp set with archival black ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock.  Heat set the ink before die cutting and embossing the panel with the Pierced Rectangles Die.


3). Die cut and emboss two rectangles from black cardstock using the next largest die in the Pierced Rectangles Dies, mount the sentiment onto one panel and set aside.  Split the other panel in half and adhere to the large side step of the Side Step card base (overlapping a bit to allow the green cardstock to show evenly).

4). Ink the floral image from the Tulips stamp set with archival black ink, stamp four images onto white cardstock, heat set the ink and die cut with the Tulip Die.

5). Watercolor the floral images with yellow, blackberry and green dye based inks and markers, using a water brush to blend the ink. Add a bit of shimmer to the flower petals using a clear shimmer pen.

6). Adhere the flowers to the small steps of the Side Step card base, add one tulip to the larger side step on the left, mount the sentiment on top of the flower and adhere the last tulip to the card front (making sure that the cut edge of the rectangle is covered).

7). Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock using the Small Bow Dies, assemble the bow and mount onto the card front.  Add a few pearls to finish off the card.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and visit- hugs and I hope I have inspired you to create something this weekend!

Our Daily Bread Designs March 2017 Release Reminder

Hi Friends! 

Today we are taking a look back at the March 2017 Our Daily Bread Designs Release!  We are celebrating with a Design Team Blog Hop and I know that you will not want to miss out on the fabulous inspiration from the rest of my ODBD sister “Bread Sticks” - we would love to have you hop along with us:

Dawn * Cathy * Lisa * Helen * Kathy * Sandee
Sabrina * Robin * Diana Lori * Julie (you are here)


My card features the Daffodils stamp set along with the coordinating Daffodil Die, Side Step Die, Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies (all from the March release) as well as the previously released Pierced Square Dies and BeautifulBorders Dies.


To create this card:

1). Ink the Daffodils floral image with archival black ink and stamp three of the images onto white cardstock.  Die cut each with the Daffodil Die and watercolor with watercolor pencils (in case you have never seen purple daffodils, I "googled" purple daffodils for my color combination :-)).

2). Die cut the card base using the Side Step Die from plum cardstock, fold along the score lines.

3). Die cut and emboss two pieces of white cardstock with the medium size die from the Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies, split one in half and mount onto the “steps” of the Side Step Card.

4). Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the Beautiful Borders Dies, adhere to the front “step” of the card base.

5). Add the Circle Scalloped Rectangle die cut to the side panel and  add the die cut Daffodils image.

6). Stamp the sentiment from the Daffodils stamp set using black archival ink onto white cardstock, set the ink with a heat tool before die cutting and embossing the sentiment with the Pierced Square Dies.  Mount the sentiment onto a piece of plum cardstock, trim close to the edge.  Mount the sentiment to the side panel and add a few pearls to the corners.

7). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flowers to finish off the card.


Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and have a great week, my friends!
