A Look Back to ODBD's December Release!

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs December Release! This is such a versatile and beautiful release. I've had so much fun using the stamps and the gorgeous dies. In this occasion I made a card with a delicate vintage look and lots of dimension


Supplies 
GILDED GATE DIES
MINI TAG DIES
VINTAGE FLOURISH PATTERN DIES
THE GATE Stamp Set
ADMIT THREE (Clear Stamps)
CHRISTMAS COLLECTION 2014 6x6 PAPER PAD

To make my card I started off by die cutting my card base using the Vintage Flourish Pattern die. Then I adhered two labels on the center, from the same set, a polka dot patterned label and a smaller label where I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from The Gate stamp set. I stenciled the sentiment label with two different inks too.

I stamped and heat embossed in white three tickets from Admit Three and the gate from The Gate stamp set and then die cut all the stamped images with their coordinating dies from the Mini Tags and the Gilded Gate die sets. Next I sponged the elements the same way I stenciled the middle label.

I added a piece aquamarine ribbon on the bottom of the card and mounted the three stamped and die cut tickets below it, creating a border. Then I also mounted the gate die cut to frame the main sentiment label. To finish the design I added a pretty bow and a couple of crystal stickers.

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…
