ODBD - Love One Another - Wedding Blessings

Hurray! I finally figured out how to add a watermark image!!

I'm very excited to announce that I have the privilege of guest designing for Our Daily Bread Designs for the months of April and May!

I've never designed cards for a stamp company before and I'm feeling quite green! I hope I bring honor to God and to Kelley Holland, the owner of ODBD, as I represent Our Daily Bread Designs in my artwork.

Let me say a little about the stamps. They are made of high quality, deeply-etched rubber that is nicely trimmed and are mounted on Smart Cushion. And they're made right here in the United States! A rarity, these days! They come on an acrylic sheet and are easy to peel off, but cling strongly to your acrylic block. Very nice! They're a pleasure to stamp with! They're so nicely trimmed that I didn't even need my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up!

This first card uses the sweet image and one of the word sayings from one of the new April sets to be released tomorrow - April 1st, no foolin'! (lol Sorry, couldn't help myself.) The set is called Love One Another and has many lovely Scripture stamps that are very versatile for weddings, anniversaries, and just plain love stuff.

This card's base is Blush Blossom cs. I was going to go white, but the subtlety of the BB drew me in. It looks so lovely against the swirled vellum and the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch design, not to mention, the romantic intertwined hearts.

I used the Cuttlebug Script embossing folder on just the front panels. You can see it peeking out from the bottom. The swirl vellum (Stampin' Up!) goes almost all the way down, but is broken by the lovely Doily Lace. I very gingerly dotted the BB cs with bits of Mono Multi glue to keep the vellum in place.

The oval scallop is actually a sandwich of cream cs and 2 pieces of swirl vellum. It works well. I wish I had used white cs instead, but the cream doesn't seem so out of place, really. I wanted the underside of the scallop to look finished, which is why I went with the sandwich.

To make the hearts sparkle I stamped in ColorBox Frost White (a pigment ink) and sprinkled it with White embossing powder. I heat set it and let it cool. Then I brushed the image with an invisible glue pen and sprinkled Snow White Mist glitter over it. After it dried I carefully brushed off the excess with a soft brush.

I added a small number of pearls to the organdy ribbon to oomph it up. The look goes beautifully with the vellum and cs, I think.

For the saying I stamped in ColorBox Frost White and heat embossed it with White embossing powder.

FYI, I highly recommend using an embossing pillow (usually filled with baby powder or some such) to prepare the area to be embossed. It removes or reduces the static cling of the ep and makes for a cleaner look. You just pat it gently all over on the area you want to heat emboss and then stamp.

For the inside I used white cs and swirl vellum. I put the vellum over the white on the side panels and just below the saying from Love One Another. I glued a row of pearls to some narrow organdy ribbon as an accent. The inside stamp is stamped in Blush Blossom ink.

You might have noticed a white dot on the back of the scallop in that last picture. T'is Velcro. I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch out a small circle of Velcro to use as a closure for the card. It's semi-reliable. I need a bigger circle for this card.

If you need to make any wedding cards or gifts, I highly recommend this set! Any June brides you need to stamp for?

It's funny how for the last several springs I've brought this set out. If any set says "spring" I think SU Paris in the Spring does. Who can't imagine feeling the fresh spring air running through their hair while looking at this Parisian girl on her scooter? Even though this set is retired (harumph!) I hope to never part with it. It's fresh no matter how many times I've use it.

When you take pics of your work, you often only then notice its many flaws. And being a recovering perfectionist, I see them all loud and clear. It's what keeps me from selling my cards on eBay or sending them more often to magazines. So when looking at this card, please forgive the flaws if you are also a perfectionist, recovering or otherwise.

First let me say that this card fought me tooth and nail. It didn't want to come into this world, but I made it. It tried to thwart me in every way. Whether it was forgetting to put the ribbon on over a certain part and gluing it down wrong or getting the inside messed up so badly that I had to redo it completely (it was going to be white only on the main card, but now it is black).

One thing I learned while making this card is that zigzag stitching is a booger to do. Those corner turns are murder. Any tips out there on how it is done properly-like? I ruined 2 pieces of designer paper and black cs trying to zigzag stitch. I gave up and went with a straight stitch. Then my sewing machine went all wonky from me changing the settings! I have sew much to learn. heh heh

Isn't the border punch lovely? Its Fiskars "Diamond". Don't look at the left end. *sigh* See? imperfect. I had my troubles with that punch, too. It's a miracle this card exists, I tell ya!

In coloring the girl I stamped on white cs with Basic Black ink. Once it was dry I colored the majority of the parts of the image with SU markers. The exceptions are that I used a water brush and Pumpkin Pie ink pad for the scooter (which I later shaded a bit with the Summer Sun marker) and the pale gray outline around the whole image which I achieved using the Copic Cool Gray (C1) marker. I've wanted that thing for the longest time. Finally got it.

I stamped the "merci!" and the flowers before embossing over them, btw.

For embossing, I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Floral Screen folders. I also used the Cuttlebug to create the scalloped and regular circles using Nesties. I used a paper piercer to poke a hole in each "petal".

Dat's about it. Ask questions if I forgot something you'd like to know. TFL!

Floral Thank You


As I mentioned in my last post, this card is for Susan, the receptionist at my physical therapy place. Now that I am done with my therapy I want to thank the 2 ladies who made my therapy experience such a good one.

Once again, I loved playing with the Basic Grey Archaic papers. They are just my style. I love their aged look. It might seem a bit quirky to mix floral images with that top stony-looking paper, but I like it. Just don't ask questions about why, because I don't know why!. :-P

I used the Martha Stewart Embossed Zigzag punch on white cs. There is an easy way to get your punched area to line up properly. Cut the piece you want to punch. Then start in the center of your paper and work out to the right and then to the left (or vice-versa). I learned this the hard way. Martha probably mentioned it on the packaging, but that was in the trash so fast I hadn't enough time to read it. I just wanted to USE the punch! Lovely, it is. I added 2 different-sized pearl blingies as you can see. Just picked this pattern randomly. I also ran a line of the tiny ones along the brown ribbon above the punched piece. Unfortunately, it's a bit crooked, but I am letting it go to keep my perfectionism tamped down.

I stitched the 2 Archaic papers to the black cs by first putting a couple of short lines of mono adhesive on them to keep them still. Then I stitched. The same was done on the floral piece. You don't need to put adhesive around the edges. In fact, if you do you will have one sticky sewing machine needle. If that happens, just clean it with Goo Gone and it will be good as new.

Speaking of the floral piece, I stamped a flower from Stampin' Up! Petal Prints by coloring the stamp with markers, huffing on it and stamping. Then I stamped the shadow image for the flower with Basic Black ink using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to align the black image slightly to the left so the other colors would be visible underneath. I made a random pattern of the flowers.

I then spritzed the whole thing with water to soften the ink edges a bit. Then I let it dry thoroughly and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Tiny Bubbles folder. I really tortured that poor paper! THEN I spritzed it with my one and only (so far) Copic marker (Special Black) and THEN I touched up the flowers with some Twinkling H2Os which I hadn't touched in so long. I glued it down to some Always Artichoke cs and then black and stitched that sucker. Yes, it got quite a workout, as did I!

The 3 antique brass mini-brads were one of the first things I added. I hope they don't clash with the pearls, but you know what they say: "pearls go with everything", right? And I think it works. You could say this is my "outside-the-box" card thanks to my choice quirky combinations.

On the main Chocolate Chip cs I stamped the SU Canvas background stamp in Chocolate Chip ink. I think it adds a nice "texture". I love that stamp and can't believe it's already retired. Are they crazy?? I can think of some stamps that I wouldn't mind seeing go, but Canvas??

The inside is yadda yadda yadda, you know the directions if you saw my last few cards. Basic Grey Archaic paper, a stitched smaller piece, on and on. Oh yeah, I accidentally forgot and wrote in this card before I took pics. Let's just say the handwriting adds a "homey touch". ;)

Phew! Can't believe I got this up tonight! Thanks for looking! Tomorrow I need to get these cards mailed out. Blessings!

You're the Cat's

I am all finished with my shoulder therapy sessions (3 months' worth!) and wanted to thank the therapist and the receptionist for making my therapy experience such a positive one. Challenging, yes, but positive. May I say that if you have the kind of surgery that requires physical therapy and "homework" that you DO IT? I am so glad I obeyed my therapist's and doctor's orders. I am now pain-free where once was agonizing pain (I had a torn rotator cuff). Had I not done the therapy I would have a frozen shoulder now and the surgery would have been a waste. I love my therapist and doctor!

Anywho, one of the ways I wanted to show my appreciation was by making them cards. Susan, the receptionist, always had a smile and a kind word for me. She joked around with hubs and me nearly every time we went. Her laid-back manner really helped me overcome the fear I had of what therapy was going to be like. Such a sweetie.

Cindy was my therapist, and she was always challenging me. At times early on, I was not happy about this. But I listened to her and she listened to me. She allowed me to have a say when I was uncomfortable or feeling pushed too hard. I very much appreciate all she did for me. She checked up on me about my "homework", making sure I was doing what she had told me to do, and she corrected me when I was doing movements wrong so I wouldn't hurt myself. She's a treasure and worth her weight in gold.

So, this first card is for Cindy, my therapist. You can't spend months with a person and not get to know them at least a little. I found out she loves cats. So it felt right to use the Stampin' Up! Cool Cat set (retired) to make her card.

I started with the designer paper I love so much by Basic Grey. I don't go ga-ga for every paper they create, but some send me to the moon! One of those is Archaic. I love every single paper in that pad!

At first I wasn't going to cuttlebug anything on this card (I know, hard to fathom). But even with the fabulous Archaic papers and the added stitching it still wasn't quite right. It was too *blah*. So I used the D'Vine Swirls embossing folder on the top and the Distressed Stripes folder on the bottom. I ran into a slight dilemma using the Distressed Stripes the way I did. I wanted the stripes to be vertical, but my card was wider than the folder. Because I put the folder over most of the lower piece to emboss, by the time I went to do the rest it wouldn't fit in the Cuttlebug machine! And there was no way I could get it to fit. So I set the Cuttlebug plates on the floor and acted like *I* was the Cuttlebug machine and stepped with all of my weight on it. It helped. Not quite the deep impression I wanted, but good enough. Thinking about it now, I bet if I had gotten the paper slightly damp I maybe could've gotten a deeper impression. Oh well, too late. The area that was less "impressive" has the 2 flowers over it. I don't think anyone will notice.

Btw, I stamped the saying before doing the cuttlebugging, but you probably already knew that, huh? You can't stamp on the cuttlebugged part. It won't come out right a-tall. Remember that. You must think ahead like I don't always do. :-P

For the kitty I stamped it first in Pumpkin Pie ink, then very lightly in Chocolate Chip, and then rolled the edges a bit in Basic Black, huffed warm air on it and stamped on the white cs. It gave the kitty a Siamese look, don't you think? I love it because it's splotchy look goes along with the theme of the Basic Grey papers. I spritzed some Copic Special Black ink over the kitty scene using my Inkworx gun to add some interest.

Did you know that you can use Copics in your Inkworx Air Art gun? Just take out the tube inside the cylinder that the screw fits into. That enlarges the holding capacity. Lay the flat side of the marker down and tighten the screw. Voila! Return the tube (after taking out the screw first and then returning it) for regular markers.

I added tiny aqua and amber gems to the collar area to give the kitty a jeweled collar and used a punched-out flower with an aqua gem on the tail. I punched the flower out of the matching paper from the bottom of the card.

I did double stitching around the kitty scene using Bashful Blue cs and black, of course.

The ribbon situation was another area I had some trouble with. At first I was only going to use one ribbon to visually divide the papers. But I felt the upper part of the card still needed something. So I carried the ribbon idea up a little higher and added the black gingham for a little "wow"ness.

The inside was pretty self-explanatory. I used the "plain" Basic Grey papers from Archaic and carried the theme from the outside to the inside. I stitched around the small piece of dp. The inside sentiment is from Stampin' Up! Cheery Chat (retired).

Well, thanks for looking! I will get to the other card soon. Running out of time. May not get it posted tonight.

More Froggie Love

This was my original idea for a froggie card. I wanted the frogs to float around in the main piece. So today I played until I got what I wanted. Can you say lots of time wasted?? Really, I don't know how these card-a-day stampers can not only stamp a card, but blog about it every. single. day. without killing half the day. I can't! :-o

But I will be stamping up a storm soon as I have been invited to join a design team as a guest designer for April and May. I'm very excited and scared! Will share more later!

I think it's something like Murphy's Law at work when I decide to use a big piece of white cardstock as my main design piece or ANY design piece. Inevitably, I smear it or the ink doesn't take right, or I get something sticky on it or I get it perfect (or close) only to have something go wrong after everything is glued perfectly in place. Just must happen to me, I guess.

I actually started this card (or its predecessor) yesterday with lots of changes taking place because of goof-ups. I will call this my "Jane Eyre" card because I watched Jane Eyre (1983 version) on YouTube while working on it. I watched almost the whole series and STILL didn't have a finished card to show for it. Today I listened to Rush and Sean and worked on this one. Should I then call it my Rush/Sean card or my Conservative Talk Radio card?

Maybe it's because I do so many things to the card elements that I have so many mishaps. I don't just cut the paper, I punch it, pierce it, or emboss it or paint it or whatever. Glue is often my worst enemy. Ever since I found out that my cards were coming apart because the mono adhesive wasn't doing its job, I started using mono multi. Well, it's a white liquid glue. And no matter how hard I try, inevitably it squishes out the sides somewhere and puts the whole card at risk of being damaged and trashed. Wasn't card making supposed to relieve stress?? ;)

So please forgive me for not spending more time getting better pics of this card. I am too tired to worry about it, but may try harder later. If I do I'll switch out the old ones with the new ones.

Did you notice that there is no designer paper on this one? Yes, I'm doing things the "old-fashioned" way like I used to before discovering the wonderful world of designer paper.

For the main piece I stamped the flower from Stampin' Up! Unfrogettable in Basic Black ink on glossy white cs. Then I stamped the frog from Hero Arts Sending Happy Thoughts (CL305) around the flowers. I let that dry while I worked on the green area. I stamped the SU Canvas background stamp in Certainly Celery ink on Certainly Celery cs and set it aside.

Once the frog ink was dry I colored in the flowers with the Ruby Red and Rose Red markers and colored the green parts of the flowers with Certainly Celery and Old Olive. For the frogs I used a water brush and ink pads to give them a watercolored look. I started by applying More Mustard ink. Then went over that with Old Olive.

Once that was completely dry I ran the piece through the Cuttlebug using the Tiny Bubbles folder (my favorite). Wow, did that do the trick! I love it when something clicks for me.

I attached the frog piece to the Real Red and black cardstock using 3D-Dots and then ran a stitch around it to warm it up a bit. A big thanks to Barbara Latham (a reader of my blog) for her tip about tucking the strings to the back. I think it looks much nicer using your advice. Barbara says to pull the loose thread tail through to the back and secure it by tying it to the beginning thread tail. I glued mine down on the back rather than tie since I didn't leave a long enough tail to tie with. Her tip made my work look much more professional, don't you think? Thank you again, Barbara!

After putting the frog piece together, but not securing it just yet on the card, I figured out where the sentiment should go and stamped it in Basic Black ink using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to place it just right. The sentiment is also from SU Unfrogettable.

Once that was done I ran the Certainly Celery piece through the Cuttlebug using the Distressed Stripes folder sideways. I added the black polka dot ribbon, used the corner punch on the tips and attached it to the black background piece which I had already done the corners of with the punch.

Then I added the frog piece, the red gems and the bow. I also added gold gems to the flower centers on the frog piece to give it a finished look.

On the inside I used white cardstock and was a bit flummoxed about what to do since I had not used any designer paper I could repeat. So I figured I could use a more muted theme of the frog piece and just color part of it. I blocked it with Post-It notes so that it would have a nice clean ending place where the ribbon could go. I ran out of black polka dot ribbon (GASP) so I used solid black grosgrain to keep things at least in a similar vain. I added the bow (a scrap I scrounged up) to repeat the outside ribbon. I stamped another sentiment from Unfrogettable in a way that really pleased me. I hope you're pleased, too. Btw, that is not a smudge on the right side. Not sure why that showed up on my pic. Better check the camera lens!

Thanks for looking!

Unfrogettable Froggie

I had a fun time playing with my favorite froggie today. I know the word is spelled "froggy", but I like the "ie" ending better. And it seems that making up words and respelling is "the thing" these days, so please humor me.

I had a totally different idea about how I wanted this card to look. I was going to have the frog floating around in a white space, pointing in numerous directions. But I saw the designer paper and just took a totally different route.

This paper is really fun. I bought a big pack of it at Tuesday Morning for $5.99! (Regularly $19.99) It's made by American Crafts and comes in a 12" x 12" size with 60 sheets, 30 different patterns! This set is called "Celebration" (71003).

For the big piece I used a corner punch in the...corners and then ran the striped dp through the Cuttlebug using the Spots and Dots folder. It held up pretty well with only minor cracking in some spots.

I used another paper for the middle piece. It is flowers made with dots, the same paper as I used inside the card. I ran that through the CB using the Mesh folder.

For the main image I used Basic Black ink on glossy white cs (better for watercoloring). I stamped the frog first. Then I made a block of him out of a Post-It note and covered him while I stamped the mushrooms. Then I added the butterfly. For the word stamp (Stampin' Up! Unfrogettable) I stamped "Unfrogettable" and blocked "You're" with a Post-It note, and then stamped "You're" next to it using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement.

I colored the images with markers and a water brush and ink pads. Just kind of did a combination. Colors can be found in the recipe below.

I added googly eyes, tiny pearls and gold gems to enhance the scene. Also, I went a bit nuts with the Stickles. You see, I have yearned for Stickles for a long time. So when I saw them at my local Archiver's I bought a bunch and have been looking for a way to use them ever since. The urge will die down at some point, but for now I'm a little Stickles crazy. (Colors listed in recipe) Kind of like when I was paper piercing crazy. It's just got to run its course.

The inside of the card was fun to do. I get so much inspiration from other stampers out there. And I've seen some lovely ways to decorate the insides of cards. Bringing the theme to the inside is just amazing. It adds so much. It also allows you to use dark cs as your base, which would otherwise be difficult since you can't see writing on it very easily. As many of you know, I'm a big black cs fan. Making the insides of my cards more decorative has brought my black cs addiction to new heights!

I know I use black polka dot ribbon a LOT on my cards. I promise, I do try to use something else from my vast collection of ribbon, but nothing else looks as good. I can't help myself!

Thanks for looking! Have a lovely evening!

Cupcake Birthday

This card is going to be for my niece's 22nd birthday coming up next month. It all started with the gatefold idea. I wanted to play around with my Scor-Pal again and I wanted a gatefold card.

Btw, the green cs is SU Gable Green. I scored it (see next paragraph) and then applied Green Galore ink direct-to-paper. I let it dry thoroughly before proceeding.

To make the scored lines meet up pretty closely, I opened the card all the way out and scored the outside of the card from the top left corner to the bottom right corner in half-inch increments. Then I went from top right to bottom left the exact same way. It worked pretty well. The measurements of my card (the green part, anyway) are approximately 5" x 10" with the front panels scored at 2.5" and 7.5". It's not exact, but very close. The black cs behind it makes the width 5 & 1/4", which will still fit just fine in a 5.5" x 5.5" envelope.

I used a corner punch generously on the card. I stitched around the front panels and on the inside panels with white thread on my sewing machine. There's something satisfying about sewing on cardstock. To aid the stitching, I put a little glue down the back centers of the panels and stuck them together, and then ran them under the sewing machine. This kept the cs together while I stitched.

For the cupcake scene I stamped in SU Basic Black ink on 3 pieces of cs. I put one through the Cuttlebug using a circle Nestie and cut the cake out of one and the cupcake/ladder out of another and just the cupcake out of the third. I colored the topmost pieces with Prismacolor pencils and popped them out with 3D-Dots. Then I used several colors of Stickles on several parts (see recipe below). I also drew a horizon line behind the scene with a black pen.

I cuttlebugged two different elements on the card. I used the Mesh folder for the black scalloped circle and Script for the "front door panels". For the word sentiment I used Green Galore cs and ink. I dtp'd the ink onto the cs and cut it out and mounted it on the black.

I used the turquoise Stickles here and there on the front panels to connect the aqua gems I later added and the turquoise on the cupcake.

I used a 1/2" Velcro dot to keep the card closed, securing one part behind the scalloped circle and the other on the front left panel.

As you can see, I stitched inside the card by gluing the black and designer paper panels together and then running them under the sewing machine.

The designer papers I used are from the Pocket Full of Posies collection by DCWV.

Hope that covers it. If I've left anything important out please let me know. TFL!
