Flutter & Fly - Our Daily Bread Designs

This week the challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is Fluttering and Flying with ODBD stamps and here is the card I made inspired in this theme!



ODBD Stamps used: Belle Vignes / ODBD Dies used: Fancy Fritillary, Fancy Foliage / ODBD Paper used: Soulful Stitches

I really enjoyed using the new background stamp together with the new butterfly die cuts. I went for a fuscia color to contrast with the neutral background. Love how well the flourishes look also! This was such a nice card to create. I folded one of the butterflies to create a different look for this gorgeous die cut... It´s a really simple trick that I like to use with butterflies sometimes. I skipped adding a sentiment to the front of the card this time but I will be adding something nice inside! I finished this clean and layered design with gross grain ribbon, pearls and rhinestones.

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 …
