Here's my first card:

ODBD Products:  Blossom, Flower Box Filler DieDoily DieFancy Foliage DieShabby Rose Paper Collection

I used the pretty rose bud and sentiment from the Blossom set to make this card. I colored the rose bud with Prismacolors and blended the colors with OMS. I the fussy cut the rose bud and adhered it over the stamped cream doily. I machine stitched all around the card for a simple and chic feel. Finally, I added some tiny cream flowers from the Flower Box Filler Die to finish it off.

Here's a close up of the card:


Here's my second card:

ODBD Products:  FragranceTrois Jolies PapillonsTrois Papillons DieVintage Labels Die, Layered Lacy Squares DieVintage Labels Die, Rustic Beauty Paper Collection

I had a lot of fun with this card! I stamped the flower twice, colored it, fussy cut it and then layered them to give it dimension. I added the flowers to the top side of my die cut sentiment. I then stamped, colored and cut two butterflies and added them to my card over the square doily die. i finished it all off with some Stickles to add some bling!

Here are a few close ups of the card:




Here are the NEW Products that I used for these two cards:

I recently received the new Cascading Fuchsia flowers and of course I had to make a card with them for one of my best friend's wedding!

She loves purple and flowers so this is what I came up with:

These flowers are simply gorgeous and so detailed! I only made 3 for this card since I wanted a lot of greenery as well (her wedding is outdoors) but a pop of color is all you need with these beauties! I made a window card (the base measures 5"x7"). I also added some purple butterflies and a pretty lace bow, topped with an antique button.

Here's another picture of the full card:


Here's a close up of these gorgeous blooms!


and one more close up of the card. I love how the oval window looks!


This is the inside:

You can see the sentiment on the inside as well and I added two tiny butterflies to cheer the inside of the card up. Finally, I added a few liquid pearl drops to make a marker of what can be seen from the outside so that I don't write in there!

List of Heartfelt Creations products used:

NOTE: The butterflies stamps (HCPC 3480) and dies (HCD 723) have been discontinued.

monday...ODBD Sunshine cards

Happy Monday! To cheer you up today I thought I'd share with you a Sunshine card and some Project Life cards and embellies I made!


ODBD Products: Sunburst Background Die, Layered Lacey Square Die, Hello Sunshine

I wanted to create a cream monochromatic card and this is what I came up with! I love this new gorgeous Sunburst Background Die and it's perfect for monochromatic cards! I added a bit of ribbon under the popped up sentiment and sun (which I added Stickles) and called it done! It was one of my fastest cards up to date but one of my favorite as well!

Here's a close up of it:



I also made some Project Life cards and embellies for my son's album:

These were quick and simple but so happy and cheery! I can't wait to add them to his baby album!

tuesday...ODBDSLC243 Father's Day Card

Come and join us for an Inspiration Challenge #243 over at Our Daily Bread Designs this week and get your Father's day cards done by this weekend!

Here's what I came up with:

I kept it simple and sweet, perfect for masculine cards. I used the Sunburst die inked with brown distress ink for the background and dusted off a piece of vellum (remember these!?) and used it to stamp my sentiment on it. i then placed it over the sunset and added a masculine -looking button from my stash.

and here's a close up of my card:

Here's the inspiration picture:

Hope you have a blessed rest of the week!

friday...ODBD June Release Reminder

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs June Release, here is the card I created using Good Man sentiment. For more inspiration using the June Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.


ODBD Products: Good Man, Doily Die, Birds and Nest Die, Vintage Flourish Pattern Die, Fancy Foliage Die, Vintage Ephemera Collection

Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favorite Bible verses and I knew I wanted to make a card with is as soon as I saw it! I used a neutral color paper from the new Vintage Ephemera Collection for the background, added a white embossed doily and stamped and cut the verse our of white cardstock and added it over the doily. I made two tiny, layered roses using the dies from last month's release (Birds and Nest Die) and added some greenery and blig to finish it off.

Here are some close ups of the card:
