ODBD Color Challenge + Video

A new month of challenges and wonderful releases is here! Have you seen Our Daily Bread Designs new release? It's just gorgeous and full of many, many new stamps and dies that I know you'll love. So today I am sharing a card I made with some of the new products for our Color Inspiration challenge.




I decided to use yellow, blue and green from the color board. I didn't know how my design would turn out because this are not my usual colors, but I am really happy with the result. I used two paper collections from ODBD: Rustic Beauty and Blushing Rose.

The handmade flowers were made with the new Birds and Nest dies set, that includes two different flower dies. I will be sharing a video tutorial on how to make flowers with this set tomorrow, so stay tuned. I finished the flower bouquet with flourishes and leaves die cut with the Fancy Foliage set.

I used the beautiful Quatrefoil Pattern die, cutting it roughly to give the card a mixed media feel. I colored the patterned die cut with Yellow Gold Inka Gold and then with Antique Linen paint. I also used the coordinating Quatrefoil Design die as a label for the sentiment. This beautiful sentiment is also from another new stamp set called Belle Vignes.

I finished the card with many little stamped and die cut butterflies that I created with the new Butterfly & Bugs stamp set and Butterflies & Bugs dies.

I have a video for you below where I share a close-up to Our Daily Bread Designs May release and a sneak peek of a card I made with more new stamps and dies. I invite you to check it out:

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 …
