Splendorous Stars Collection - Our Daily Bread Designs

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs November Release. As you may know already I've been invited to join ODBD this month as a guest designer. I've been delighted with all your kind and encouraging comments, and of course I'll have a wonderful time designing with ODBD's Splendorous Stars Christmas Collection.

Here is a card and gift box set I made for today:


I wanted to create a delicate card, so I die cut the card base using the Flourished Star Pattern frame. I added a piece of lilac ribbon around the front of the card and adhered a double bow embellished with a couple of stars. I added a large sentiment, which I stamped and heat embossed in silver on a label die cut. To add contrast, I sponged the label with Memento Lulu Lavender ink.


I heat embossed in silver the largest star with a large patterned star stamp. This star stamp didn't precisely coordinate with the size of the star die, but it covered the die cut completely, and made it look great! The smaller star was die cut from lilac metallic cardstock and adorned with a small silver rhinestone.



To make the box I die cut two Flourished Star Pattern frames for it's cover and folded roughly a rectangular box with a zig zag accordion fold, as I call it. The cover was reinforced with a piece of lilac ribbon and a double bow which I decorated as the card, but I did use larger stars for it.

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 you HERE . 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 h

Video Tutorial: Quick New Year's Card with Simple Stories & Deco Foil

I'm back with a fun and really easy to make card for the Holidays or the New Year and I have a video tutorial with Therm O Web today. I'm sure we all are rushing at the very last minute looking for tags and cards and wrapping gifts... I know I always am. That is why my latest Holiday projects have been on the quick and easy side so you can try them out if you need to! The usual theme for New Year's cards is usually monochromatic, metallic... But, what if we used colorful Holiday colors instead? Why not? Well, this time you'll see me use papers from Simple Stories Very Merry Collection. Video Tutorial This is short and sweet video tutorial where I show you how I put together this card. Really with card designing the hard part is figuring out what you want your card to look like in the end but once you have figured out what elements you'll be adding and where you will be placing them the card comes together pretty fast. So the behind the scenes may not ha
