Snowman Family

Welcome to North Coast Creations October release. A super fun set to show you today called Snowman Family. Yes another snowman for me, hee hee.. My first one is rather bold with all the red, and white. I do like smiles they all have as they go rushing down the hill of snow. They are stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. I have added sparkles to the snow and some sequins my new favorite embellishment.  :-)

My second card using Snowman Family is a classic "Stacy" with blue and white color scheme. You knew this was coming, right?  I have them stamped in blue ink and then used my aqua brush while the ink was still wet to bring some of the blue over the image. The beautiful silver background paper is from the new Winter Collection 2014 available November 1st layered on a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles frame. I added some blue sequin to this creation as well with added sparkles. Voila!

ODBD Christmas Greetings

Welcome to Our Daily Bread designs rewind of the October Release. For those of you that subscribe to my blog you got a treat and saw this last Friday. Big oops, hey life happens ya know.  ;-)   In case you missed them, no need to fret. You can see the new release HERE or on the ODBD Blog.

My first creation today is another poinsettia gift tag for my friends request. This one she asked for a longer ribbon handle almost like an ornament hanger I think, as well with a folded tab so she can write a few more words inside. This is the one I created using the new Poinsettia Ornament stamp that is stamped on white card stock and colored with Copics. After the image was colored I die cut using the new ODBD custom Matting Circles die and a silver foil topper from the die set. I did layer my poinsettia out and I have a tutorial here if you would like to see and create your own Poinsettia Tag. Added to the tied off silver cord a white new Peaceful Poinsettia Die with a pearl center. Voila! 

My second card is a favorite as the warm country feel is what I was going for and achieved I think. this is the beautiful new Wisemen Ornament that is stamped in caramel ink and die cut again using ODBD custom Matting Circle die. Layered onto a kraft ODBD custom Doily Die that is popped up on dimensionals. A layer of cream lace trim using the Lace Technique tutorial and a burgundy ribbon bow that has a crown etched button for the center. Perfect for the image don't you think? A bit of sparkle all over the ornament and voila!

Be Merry and simple

Good morning. I am working on a few clean Christmas cards that are easy to make large quantities of. This one is using the new Bottlebrush Holiday stamp set from Power Poppy. The splash of color against the white just makes me smile. My image panel is popped up on dimensionals with a hint of sparkle added to the tree.

Rounded my corners for fun since I have not done that forever. Scrap piece of designer paper with a spellbinders edge. Voila! See how easy this is. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Simple blank note

Sometimes you just need a note card without a sentiment, well I do. Not sure this turned out quite like I wanted yet it doesn't not seem like I planned if that makes any sense at all! Anyways... I stamped my Azaleas onto white card stock, colored with Copics and fussy cut around the blooms. Added dimensionals to the back as they will pop up off the Nobel Rectangles die cut in white card stock. The base layer is a textured Bazzill pink card stock you see through the die cut. A few of my shimmery Candi dots and voila!  Have a fabulous day.

I have them stamped on white card stock and colored with various Copic markers. A simple scored border for the matting and dimensionals to pop the panel up. This designer paper is from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day paper pack. Added a ribbon bow with some sequins (yes I am addicted to these things) and a sentiment circle. Voila! 

The football season is coming to an end for the kids. Sorta bummed as they only had 8 games. However we won't be bored for long as in just a week basketball starts. No rest for the weary they say!  ;-)  They are excited to play basketball this year and all the fun it will bring. Hope you are having a wonderful week!
