Ice Cream Shoppe- Life is Better with Ice Cream!



Hi Friends! 

I hope you are having a great week so far!  I had fun designing this Mixed Media card for this week’s  Splitcoaststampers SC612 Sketch Challenge using the Ice Cream Shoppe along with the Bottle Caps Background from Artistic Outpost by Our Daily Bread Designs.

I decided to pull out my sewing machine and incorporated the TGIF #74 “Sewing & Stitching” Challenge into the design :-)

If you have not had a chance to visit the Artistic Outpost Blog or the SC612 and the #TGIF74 challenge galleries yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!


To create this card:

Lay the flourish 
stencil over a piece of white cardstock and lightly brush the pale pink distress stain over the stencil, lift and re-position the stencil a bit to the left and apply a pale gray distress ink with the stencil brush.

While the stencil is  still in place, use a clear glitter pen over the entire area.

Distress the edges of the panel as well as the wedge shaped piece of the pink swirl patterned paper from the ODBD Beautiful Boho 6x6 Paper Pad, use a zig-zag stitch to attach the background pieces to the black cardstock panel and mount onto the white card base.

Ink the Bottle Cap Background and the ice cream cones from Ice Cream Shoppe using black archival ink onto white cardstock.

Fussy-cut three bottle caps along with the ice cream cones and layer onto black cardstock (fussy cutting the images again).

Die cut three circles from black cardstock using the ODBD Double Stitched Circle Dies and mount the circles directly onto the card front.

Layer the fussy-cut bottle caps with dimensional foam over the circles, add the looped silver metallic thread and mount the fussy-cut ice cream cones with dimensional foam as well.

Heat emboss the sentiment from Ice Cream Shoppe with white embossing powder, hand trim and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the ice cream as well as the bottle caps to finish off the card.


Thanks again for stopping by- hugs and enjoy the rest of your week, my friends!

The Most Important Shot


Hi Friends! 

I hope you are having a great week so far!  

Today I am sharing a card that I designed using The Golf Club and Grunge Elements from Artistic Outpost by Our Daily Bread Designs on the Artistic Outpost Blog and wanted to share it here with you as well :-).

Since Fall has officially arrived this week,  I decided to use autumn colors along with the Mojo Monday Mojo466 Sketch Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to visit the Artistic Outpost Blog yet or the Mojo Monday Challenge site, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from AO Design Team Sisters as well as the Mojo Monday gallery!

To create this card:

Die cut a piece of the bright olive green paper from the ODBD Birthday Brights 6x6 Paper Pad with the largest die from the ODBD Pierced Rectangle Dies and stamp the texture images from AO Grunge Elements with black soot distress ink before mounting onto white cardstock, trimming and mounting onto the black card front.

Die cut three additional panels from white cardstock- two with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies and the one with the ODBD Pierced Square Dies before stamping the advertising images from  AO The Golf Club with archival black ink.

Use distress inks to water color each of the panels before mounting onto black cardstock, trimming close to the die cut edge and adhering to the card front.

Using the patterned paper from the ODBD Birthday Brights 6x6 Paper Pad, create the banners by hand and stamp the grid image from AO Grunge Elements with black soot distress ink before mounting each onto black cardstock.

Add the copper clip and adhere to the card front with dimensional foam.

Stamp the two golfer images from AO The Golf Club using archival black ink onto white cardstock, fussy cut each image and mount onto black cardstock (fussy-cutting each image again) before mounting onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- your visits are such an encouragement to me!  Hugs and have a wonderful week, my friends!

Rise and Shine- Give God the Glory


Hi Friends! 

Today I am sharing another Mixed Media card featuring the ODBD Rise and Shine Stamp Set with the new ODBD Beverage Cup Dies from the ODBD September 2016 Release along with the ODBD Chalkboard Word Collage stamp and other ODBD Dies from previous releases.

I love this sentiment from the ODBD Rise and Shine stamp set- "Rise and Shine and Give God the Glory!"!!  So perfect that He should receive the All of the Glory, not me... for without Christ, I can do nothing!

I have incorporated a few of my favorite online challenges in the design- the Word Art Wednesday #248-#249 “Anything Goes” Challenge, the Retro Rubber RTS47 “Anything Goes” Challenge (the ODBD Chalkboard Word Collage stamp is several years old) and the Alphabet Challenge “O for Oval” Challenge.

In addition to the gorgeous galleries at the challenge sites, if you have not had a chance to stop by the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from my Design Team “Sisters” (affectionately known as the “Breadbasket” or “Breadsticks”).

To create this card:

Die cut and emboss a piece of white along with a piece of denim cardstock with the ODBD Flourished Star Pattern Die, cut both pieces in half and stamp the ODBD Chalkboard Word Collage stamp with a soft gray ink onto the pieces.

Mount the two panels onto a piece of cherry red cardstock, trim and mount onto the denim card base.

Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the ODBD Trellis Die and adhere to the card front.

Add a strip of the red patterned paper from the ODBD Americana Quilt Collection 6x6 Paper Pad to cover the seam (I used a piece of scrap from my stash :-)).

Ink the sentiment from the ODBD Rise and Shine stamp set using the omitting technique (I used a cherry red and denim blue water-based marker), “huff” onto the stamp to re-moisten the ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock.

Die cut and emboss the sentiment panel with the ODBD Vintage Labels Dies and use the die to sponge light gray ink over the center area.

Die cut and emboss a piece of cherry red cardstock with the ODBD Vintage Border Dies, center and adhere the sentiment die cut and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Cut and emboss the coffee cup components with the ODBD Beverage Cup Dies- I used the ODBD Americana Quilt Collection 6x6 Paper Pad for the coffee cup, cherry red cardstock for the cup wrapper, lid, straw and cherry and white cardstock for the foam and heart.

Assemble the cup and sponge light gray ink over the edges.

Mount the assembled coffee cup die cut to the card front with dimensional foam and finish off the card by applying shimmer to the heart and foam with a clear glitter pen (it is so hard to photograph this but the shimmer looks great IRL) along with a pearl to the center of the ODBD Trellis Die.

I hope this card has inspired you to dig into Rise and Shine and Give God the Glory as well as create something with the talent He has given to you :-)  Thanks again for visiting- hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!
