I made this simple but pretty card for my friend's birthday. She loves purple so the flowers had to be purple! I added three chubby brown birds over a decorative background die and stamped the sentiment right in the center. I hope that she likes it!

saturday...Merry Christmas card and a flower tutorial

Good morning friends! Today I want to share yet another Christmas Card with you! I made this one with the new ODBD November Release!

ODBD Products: Merry Christmas DiesPinecones DiesLovely Leaves DiesLayered Lacy Squares DieChristmas Collection 2015 Paper Pad

I matted my background paper with gold cardstock and added it over a cream colored cardbase. I then layered different die cut layers of the  Layered Lacy Squares Die in the center and added the die cut sentiment in the center. I embellished this card with a handmade red flower and some greenery.

Here's a close up of this card:

Here's the tutorial on how to make the flower:

Step 1. Die cut 5 pine cones from the NEW Pinecones Dies and ink their edges.

Step 2. Shape them according to my diagram to give each one a bowl shape.

Step 3. Start adhering them on their wider side on a 1" punched/die cut circle. Make sure that you overlap them as you adhere them.

Step 4. This is your finished bloom. You can use it as-is or you can make another one and layer them to get a bigger bloom. You can use whatever you want for their center.

Here's my finished version.

Hope that you enjoyed this quick tutorial! If you try it, let me know so I can see it!
Have a blessed day!

friday...ODBD November Release Reminder

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs November Release, here is the card I created using the new Born This Day and Lovely Leaves Dies!

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

ODBD Products: Born This DayLovely Leaves DiesDoily DieVintage Labels DieChristmas Paper Collection 2014

I wanted to create a white/blue Christmas card  since it's my fav color combo (our tree is white/blue/silver!) and I came up with this one! I stamped the sentiment from the new Born This Day, fussy cut around it and matted it over the silver Vintage Labels Die. I adhered the blue pattern paper over my white cardstock and added a while die cut doily. I then added the matted sentiment right in the center of the card. To embellish it, I added a lace bow and some white pine leaves and a few white pearls around the sentiment to finish it off.

monday...snowflake Christmas cards

Good morning bloggers! I've been on vacation for the past week and a half for my hubby and I's birthdays but today I'm back to share with you two new cards that i made with the new Snowflake Border Background and Flourished Merry Christmas by ODBD!

Here's my first card:

ODBD Products: Flourished Merry ChristmasSnowflake Border Background, Small Bow DiesLovely Leaves DiesPinecones Dies

I went with an outdoorsy feel to this card. I inked the background stamp with green, brown, and blue and stamped on a cream colored cardstock. I stamped the sentiment right in the center and added some pine cones and greenery on the top left corner. To finish it off, I added a blue bow and added some Stickles tot he background snowflakes.

Here's a close up of the card:

Here's my second card:

ODBD Products: Flourished Merry ChristmasSnowflake Border BackgroundLovely Leaves DiesMerry Mosaics DiesElegant Ovals Die

For the second card, I stamped the snowflake background and the sentiment in blue. I die cut the sentiment and inked the edges blue as well. I matted the snowflake background with a dark blue cardstock and added it over a white cardbase. I adhered the sentiment with pop dots to raise it a bit and give it some dimension. I added some leaves in grey and a white poinsettia flower that looks like a snowflake to the bottom right corner. I finished this card off by adding Stickles tot he edges of the sentiment and on the poinsettia and some liquid pearls over the background.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and have a great week!
