wednesday...April ODBD and OWH

Quick post to share with you my take on April's Our Daily Bread Design Challenge by Operation Write Home. This month's theme is masculine card and I just got a new (to me!) Our Daily Bread Designs stamp that is perfect for masculine cards!

Here's what I came up with:

I stamped and lightly colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended them with OMS. I used a bunch of layers and inked the edges for a distressed, masculine look. I finally added some twine and two small brown circles as embellies to the bottom right corner and called it finished!

I love how it turned out and I'm so loving this new stamp! Here's one last look at my card:

Thanks for stopping by today and come back soon! Have a great day!

tuesday...ODBD Challenge card

Happy Monday! I got another card made, this time for Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC232, a color challenge!

Here are the colors:

and here's my take on the challenge using their gorgeous Butterfly Branch Stamp and matching die.

I love the soft color sin the palette and knew that it would go wonderfully with this stamps! I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and blended them with OMS. I stamped two images and fuzzy cut the butterflies from the second to layer over the first image to give it extra dimension.

Here's a close up of the card.

Thanks for stopping by again and have a great week!

saturday...masculine anchor card

Hi everyone, welcome back! I have a masculine card to share with you.

I recently received my order from Our Daily Bread Designs and I had to use this awesome anchor stamp that I got from them! I love it already as it's awesome for masculine cards, which I know most people struggle with (I'm one of those!).

I colored the image with Prismacolors and blended them with OMS. I distressed and layered the papers to make it look 'rugged'.

I used a variety of Heartfelt Creations dies to embellish the card. I used the gears and the chain dies as well as leaves to add a bit of green into this card. I added an anchor charm at the end of the paper die cutter chain (this was so easy to do!).

I'm entering this card to these challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed rest of the weekend!

I have a bright and cheery monochromatic card to share with you today:

I used the bunny stamp (now discontinued-HCPC 3524) and colored the flowers yellow with my Prismacolors. I used a bright yellow sunshine background and machine stitched around the rays to give it some extra dimension. I die cut some leaves out of felt for extra dimension and added them to my yellow flower clusters. I finished the card off with a lace trim and some stickles and liquid pears on the flowers' centers.

Here's a close up of the flower cluster.
