Tasty sip is all

Happy Tuesday! A fun little creation for you today using Bistro! This is from a previous secret kit, however available in Digi now. Mine is stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers.

Used some scrap kraft card stock for the strips layered onto some dry embossed maroon card stock. Wrapped some twine around and tied off my Cutterly Die Light and a button center. Easy Peasy!

We had a scare last night as the contractor called to say that he wanted to know if we could push back one week the install. GASP!!!  We talked it over and we just couldn't move it a week. Thankfully! I was about ready to scream if we moved it a week. We already moved it a week to help him out and then he wants another. No way! It all works out in the end I guess but I just want this done and over with already! I have pictures to share tomorrow of the "before" house for you so stop back in if you like.  I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Little Drummer Boy so sweet

Good morning.  Spent most of the weekend getting everything created that needed to be done before the house renovations start. We are packing up the stamping room/office today. I will have pictures of the "before" on Wednesday, then when its all done I will share the "after" photos with you. This is a rather long and tiresome ordeal but it will be well worth it in the end, or so I keep telling myself. hee hee Onto my card today...

This darling little guy is called Little Drummer Boy that I Stamped onto white card stock using creamy caramel ink and colored with Copics. He is then die cut using ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern then layered onto some dark chocolate card stock die cut in ODBD Vintage Label die. Added some flourishes using ODBD Fancy Foliage Die with a few prima's from my sweet friend Pat. Voila!  Another Christmas card down!

ODBD July Rewind

Welcome to Our Daily Bread designs rewind of our July release. Check out the ODBD Blog for all the creations in one post. These pennants are fun and the dies to match are fabulous! My first creation is using the Window Card technique with the Happy banner on the outside. When it lays flat the banner on the front and the Birthday banner on the inside line up together. The Sentiments are using Pennant Swag 2 from our July release. They front banner is cut using ODBD Custom Die Pennant Swag.
Here is the inside with the birthday stamped onto the card insert along with the beautiful Rose stamp colored with Copic markers. Added some pearls to the inside banner as well as the front.

My second creation, I thought it would be fun to have the Pennant Swag Die in some polka dotted designer paper. Added fancy pearls to the corners and my Foxglove Bloom stamped from the side angle. The textured background is using another ODBD custom die called Quatrefoil Pattern. I did cut a few of the blooms and pop them up on dimensionals for fun. Voila!

Dahlia Easel fold

Good morning! Well we have several of the bookcases packed up, some toys and stuffed animals gone through. We are making progress! Decided a break was in need so I played with Dynamic Duos today and created an A2 Easel Fold creation. I have a tutorial on how I created this as well HERE if you are interested.

 The blooms are colored with Copics and cut around with dimensionals added to the back. Created a curved fancy edge using Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders one die. Added a few pearls and a ribbon bow to finish it off. Here is the card opened into the easel fold. Voila!

If you want to create your own Dynamic Duos easel fold, check out my A2 Easel fold tutorial. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Angel tag

This is a little tag I created that didn't quite turn out like I pictures. I thin my yellow card stock is too dark, a lighter shade would of been better. But its glued down now, what do you do? ha!  This sweet guy is called Angel Henry. I added the pretty Angel Wings Di-Light with a few pearls to the edge as it matches his wings. Wrapped some lace trim and ribbon around the designer paper. Voila!

Pink Gladiolies

Happy Monday! Did you have a nice hot weekend like we did? We have a record week coming for us apparently this week, suppose to be 115. ACK!!! Means indoors for us this week! I have a flower creation to share today.

Was in a pink mood when I created this card using Gladioli. My first one was in a rather teal blueish color so I went with pink this time. Die cut them with a Spellbinders classic circle, that I then layered onto a kraft cut Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty Two. Wrapped some lace trim and ribbon around the center. Tied off  a button and twine to my ribbon bow. Finished it off with a few pearls. Voila!

I mentioned last week that we are getting new carpet in the house and tile installed here at the end of the month. Did you know that when you do this, you are basically packing up your entire house as if you are moving? Oh my word!  We have broke the install up into two parts. The first will be the kitchen and dining room as that will have tile installed. The stuff in these rooms are rather large and fairly easy to move. The carpet is a whole new ball of wax. We have to pack up everything to move it out. Beds, dressers, toys, bookcases, decorations etc....  Do you know how much stuff you gather over the years? Gasp!!! Needless to say this week is going to be as I said record breaking high temps, so we will stay inside and start packing up the house. Not fun, but we might have enough stuff for a yard sale which would help move stuff out and give us a little cash. ha ha!!! I did sell some of our furniture last weekend from the front living room. We are doing a whole move around of rooms that I will share later and will make more sense. Well for those that are interested.  :-)  Enough of my babbling... Hope you have a wonderful day!
