He is Risen! - ODBD Anything Goes Challenge

Today is our last challenge of the month and it's Anything Goes with ODBD stamps! This month has been an amazing release month and everyone in the design team has showcased some gorgeous, inspiring cards and projects. It's been s joy seeing all of it!

Today I'm sharing a card with a bit of an eclectic take, in lime green, peach and gold, using vellum.


I used a technique called partial die cutting which consists basically on stamping an image and then die cutting on top of it without cutting the image. I die cut a label around the heat embossed roses and then I fussy cut the rest of the image. I colored the roses stamped on the vellum with a very light green alcohol marker.

I die cut a frame with a pretty polka dot pattern but added a peach cardstock on the back to create an unexpected contrast. I added the vellum label and then a piece of peach ribbon across it. Then on the center I used the smallest label from the Vintage Flourish Pattern set, die cutting it twice and layering around a clean label. I stamped a sentiment from the new Happy Resurrection Day set.

To finish the design I sponged the edges of the frame and label with green ink and added a few pearls.

  10. There are so many things I love about this card. Love that you diecut the patterned paper, love the gold embossing on the vellum, and love how you used the diecuts and gold beads around the center focus of the verse. And I can see this being a "mailable" card!

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 …
