Celebrating ODBD Scripture Blog Hop!

We are celebrating Our Daily Bread Designs 7th year anniversary this week! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY ODBD! Today we start off with our first blog hop! The design team has created beautiful samples inspired in ODBD's Scripture Collection stamp sets! I created a folding screen (accordion) card using a verse from Scripture Collection 11.

I used ODBD stamps, dies and papers to create this shabby chic card. I made some flowers inked softly with sprays, added pretty die cuts and a few delicate pearls and rhinestones. This card measures 5 1/2" by 3 1/2" closed and 5 1/2" by 10 1/2" opened. It fits an A2 envelope perfectly but once opened it stands on it's own and looks very delicate and elegant.

I chose this verse because I find that it contains a very important truth for the modern church and the global society. More and more people are being overwhelmed with information and situations that defy their faith in God. It's important to remember that the truths written in the Bible are universal truths that will never fail to those who follow them. He is God and there is no other.

Our Daily Bread Designs lets us share the word of God through encouraging Christian stamp sets. This company has blessed us with it's products for 7 years now! Wow! I hope you can join me and my DT sisters as we celebrate this anniversary!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:

I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

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 …
