Here's my card:

I used the newly retired Sweet Lullaby Collection for this sweet baby card for a friend's gender reveal. I had a feeling it was going to be a boy hence why I used a lot of blues-and I was right! it's a boy and he'll be born in February! :)


I stamped and colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and added over my pre-printed background. I layered a few flowers on the corner and some baby booties along with a congratulation sentiment. I added a few liquid pearls as well as plastic ones to finish my card off.

Thanks for visiting and taking your time to comment on my blog! Have a great week!

friday...ODBD December Release Reminder

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs December Release, here is the card I created using the new  Living WatersDouble Stitched Circles, and Double Stitched Rectangles! It is also a goodbye since this is my last month with ODBD. Thank you for all of your sweet comments while I've been on the DT! I'll be sure to keep in touch through blogs!

For more inspiration using the December Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.


ODBD Products: Living WatersDouble Stitched CirclesDouble Stitched RectanglesLovely Leaves DiesSmall Bow Dies

I wanted my card to focus on the gorgeous Living Waters mill so I opted to make this card simple with just a few details. I stamped and colored the mill on white cardstock and highlighted the water with stickles (see close up picture). I cut out a large circle from the new Double Stitched Circles on the brown and white cardstocks and layered them over a shimmery blue cardstock over the white background base. I added some pearl drops on the top corners and die cut a bunch of greenery and a blue bow to add right under the colored image.

Here's a close up of the card:


Here are the NEW Products that I used for this card:

ODBD Products: Elegant Embellishments SetElegant Embellishments DiesLovely Leaves DiesMerry Mosaics DiesDouble Stitched Circles

I had so much fun making this ornament and believe it or not, it's my first attempt EVER to making an ornament! Yes, it is that easy! I stamped and cut 20 ornaments from the Elegant Embellishments Set and glued 4 together to make each individual corner. I added them all over a circle to create a 'snowflake' with them. Right in the center I added another circle and started layering leaves and a dark blue poinsettia with a pearl center.

Here are a few close ups of the ornament:




Here it is on my Christmas Tree! :)

thursday...one ODBD stamp, two cards

Hi everyone! I have two cards to share with you today!

Here's the first:

ODBD Products: Safe TravelsDouble Stitched CirclesDouble Stitched RectanglesLovely Leaves DiesChristmas Paper Collection 2013

I wanted to make a snowy scene with this bridge stamp and came up with this card. I stamped and colored the image and die cut it with the new circle die. I also embossed the background pattern paper with the Double Stitched Rectangles to add some dimension and tie it all together. I added some swine to the left side of the card and then added the colored image and a sentiment to the left side. i finished it off with some leaves under the sentiment and some 'snow' all around the image. I just love how this card turned out!

Here's a close up of the card:


Here's my second card:

ODBD Products: Safe TravelsDouble Stitched CirclesDouble Stitched RectanglesLovely Leaves DiesVintage Ephemera Paper Pad

My second card using the same image is very different since I went with a Shabby Chic, monochromatic card. I colored and die cut the bridge image with the Double Stitched Rectangles and added it right over the center of the pattern paper background. I added my stamped and die cut sentiment over the left side of the card and finished it off with a lace bow and some greenery.

Here's a close up of the card:


Thank you for stopping by! Have a blessed weekend!
