Looking Back at the ODBD November Release!

 Good morning!  

Today we are taking a look back at the fabulous November release!  I have two cards to share featuring some of the new stamps and dies and papers!  

My first card uses a verse from His Birth.  I cut it out with a Vintage Flourish Pattern die and added three tiny stars cut with one of the dies in the Sparkling Stars set.  I popped it up over the beautiful papers from the Christmas Collection 2014.  Then I cut out stars with Splendorous Stars set.  (I tucked in the little Custom Shining Star die also, that is a bonus free die while supplies last, when you purchase the Star Die Bundle!)

Here is my next card:

A little shabbiness for you!  Again using the His Birth set and the same Christmas Paper 2014 Collection.  I distressed the edges of the background panels.  The stars are cut with the Sparkling Stars dies.  I also added pennant banners cut with the Pennant Row dies.  I added the sentiment and some pink rhinestones to complete the card.  Oh and a little pink button threaded with silver cord!  

Here are links to the products I used:

Gold Stars and Stripes X Two

Hi there!  Hope you all have a had a great week!  Can't believe we are already into November and the holidays are about to be in full swing!!!  Yikes!  I managed to play in this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast.  And I am loving this new stamp set (His Birth) and matching dies (Sparkling Stars) and new paper (Winter Collection) from Our Daily Bread designs!  I used versamark and gold embossing powder to match the pretty papers.  I added stickles to the stars for just a little extra sparkle.

And since I had cut the paper to fit the sketch challenge, I had the opposite pieces ready to make another card!

This time I added the gold cording and added stickles and glitter for the sparkle on the stars!

I am entering one or both of these to 
the ODBDSLC217 to make a Holiday Card!  
Two more Christmas cards done y'all!!

Here are the ODBD products I used today:

A Look Back at the NCC October Release!

We are so glad to have you with us today as we take another look at the newest release from North Coast Creations!  I have two cards to share!  

Here's Tommy!  I tried my hand at paper tole again using this cute Tommy Turkey stamp!  I made a couple of mistakes but all in all I like how he came out!  He is cut out with the ODBD Circle Ornament die and matted with the ODBD Matting Circles dies.  The background paper is from ODBD Rustic Beauty.

Here is my second card:

This is the Snowman Family!  I cut the sentiment out (and cut a 'mat')  with ODBD Recipe Card and Tags die.  The bow is from ODBD Circle Ornament dies and the stars are from ODBD Sparkling Stars dies.  Also the designer paper is from the ODBD Christmas 2014 paper collection.  I added stickles here and there for sparkle!

Here are the two new sets that I used in the cards above:

And now, back to my first card:

This card features a sentiment from the Reach for the Stars Mini set along with the little star stamp from His Birth.   The sentiment is cut out with a Vintage Flourish Pattern die.  The paper is from the from the Blushing Rose Collection.   I did lots of distressing to get that shabby look.  I made a banner with one of the Sparkling Stars dies.  I cut out some of the tiny stars and placed them here and there.  I finished the card with pearls and a pretty seam binding bow.

Here is my second card:

I went a little shabby (well, a lot!) on this card too!  I made a shaped card with Spellbinders Labels 29.  I glued white tulle onto the first layer and then added a distressed and glittered panel from the new Christmas 2014 Paper Collection.  Then I glued more tulle down.  I cut out the sentiment from the new Silk Stars set with the Vintage Flourish Pattern die, and glued it over the tulle.  More tiny stars from the Sparkling Stars dies and a Silk Star cut out with the Splendorous Stars dies along with even more tulle!  The row of pearls and the seam binding bow were the finishing touches.  

Here is another angle which shows more of the sparkle:

My first card features the Snowman Family set!  So cute!  I love snowman images!  I colored the image with copic markers and then used Spellbinders A-2 dies to create a frame around it.  Then I added stickles for snow sparkle.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with a ODBD Recipe Card and Tags die and added a cute little bow to the tag and then a die cut bow from the ODBD Circle Ornament dies at the top.  Here is a look at the inside:

 I made a pocket to hold a gift card!  I made the strip of white eyelet with the ODBD Beautiful Borders die and added another cute little bow like on the front.

Here is my next card:

 Tommy Turkey is adorable!!!  I colored him with copics and cut him out.  I used a Spellbinders Square to create a frame with the ODBD Fence and ODBD Rustic Beauty Paper behind it.  I added Tommy, an ODBD Pennant and some little wooden leaves from my stash!

Looking Back at the ODBD October Release!

 Good morning!  
Thanks for joining us today as we take a look back at the October Releases from ODBD
I have two cards to share today!  The first one uses the Mother and Child Ornament.  This card is similar to THIS one I made before but this time I used the Paper Tole technique.  I love how it turned out!  I stamped the image several times and colored in key areas.  Then lots of fussy cutting and layering it up to create lots of dimension.  Here is another view:

And here is another:

I've tried this technique before but really didn't know what I was doing and it definitely didn't turn out the way it was supposed to!  This time I followed this video instruction HERE, but it didn't come together quite as easily as it did for this talented lady!  I am still pleased with the results though and will be doing this more in the future!

Here is my next card:

A little bit shabby, a little bit sparkly! This card features God's Timing and Christmas Pennant Swag along with Sparkling Snowflakes from a former release.  The background is from the 2013 Christmas Paper Collection.

Here are all the ODBD products I used to create both cards:
