Glory to God

Back again today with a card I made for the 
I have never actually done the chalkboard technique!  
Can you believe it?   And I really like how this turned out!

I used this great stamp from ODBD called In The Highest.  I stamped it in white ink onto black card stock and then heat embossed it in white.  I trimmed around the image and distressed the edges.  I used white ink to lightly sponge around the image to mimic chalk.  I also used white ink on the edges of the bottom black layer and on the ODBD Small Bow die cut.  The red panel is cut and embossed with ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles. I added a red button to the bow to complete the card.

Enjoy your evening!

Sweet Little Lamb!

 Hello!  Hope you are having a beautiful day!

Today's Ways to Use It Challenge is things that hop, skip, leap or jump!  My card features the little lamb from the ODBD set called The Shepherd.  This month's release included a die to cut out this sweet little lamb!  I colored with copics before cutting him out.  The sentiment is cut out with a Stitched Oval and the whole panel is cut with a Double Stitched Rectangle.  The blue paper is from the new Pastel Paper Collection.

Here are the ODBD products I used for this card:

I Always

Hello there!
I made this card for the WT569-Tape It Up!  
This card was quick and easy and could be used for many occasions,
but I think it would make a great Valentine's Day card! 

The sentiment and the little heart scrolly image is from the new ODBD set called Many Thanks.  I used the ODBD Ornate Hearts dies to cut out the sentiment.  The heart is mounted over pink washi tape that is taped to a panel cut out with the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles dies.  I added a pretty pink bow and sequins to complete the card!
In real life the sequins are more pink and match nicely.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your evening!

Merry Monday Santa-A Day Late!

I have two cards for the Merry Monday Challenge#190 this week, 
to create a card with a Santa theme.
This Santa image is from Jolly Old St Nick by StampinUp!  
I colored him with copics to match the designer paper and added stickles for a little sparkle.  
Here is my second card:

Editing to add:  I tried to link up both cards to the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge but was unsuccessful.  I also wanted to mention that the tag on my second card was made for the SCSCCFEB16 challenge this month but since I rarely use tags at Christmas I used it as the focal point.  Here is a pic of the card and tag together before making the second card:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  
Have a wonderful day!

Enjoy your Cupcake!

Hello again!  
Not really sure why this card looks bent in two places at the top but it doesn't in real life!  
Must be shadows?  Weird!

This is for the CAS challenge this week-Sweet Treats.  The ODBD image is called Cupcake Plate and is on sale now!  The sentiment is from a retired set called Admit One.  I colored the image with copics and cut it out to pop up over the layer that is embossed with and ODBD Oval and ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle.  I cute the sentiment with an ODBD Mini Tags die.  I added stickles and a tiny bow to complete the card!

Thanks for stopping by again!  Have a wonderful day!

Merry Monday Challenge-One Layer Card

 Hey there! 

 I made this card for this week's  

One layer cards are one of THE hardest cards for me to do!  Probably because I never have paper substantial enough (in my opinion) to not appear flimsy when I am done!  Y'all know me!  I am a layer kinda girl!  LOL!  But since I am determined to actually meet my quota of Christmas cards this year, I decided to try this challenge.  I did remember getting some very sturdy card stock last year, so I searched the world over and finally found it hiding in my stash of paper! This card stock is very thick but it is great for copics and it is very sturdy paper.  The only problem I had was folding it in half.  I ended up sanding it a little to smooth the paper breaks.  Anyway, I like the finished result and I did make a second card just like this!  Woohoo!  Two more down!

This stamp set, Worship the Lord, is one of my all time favorite sets from Our Daily Bread designs!  I framed it by embossing around the image with an ODBD Rectangle die.  I colored with copics and then added stickles to give sparkle to the snowy/icy areas!

I am also entering this to:
