~ Summertime ~

It's almost over!  Labor Day marks the official end of summer!  In most places, the kids go back to school and life returns to some sort of normalcy.  To mark the end of summer and revisit Our Daily Bread Designs' August release, I pulled out the Flip Flop Fun set and went to work.  I stamped flip flops in blue on cream and added a die cut fence and "sand" to complete the look.

Welcome!  So very thankful you stopped by for a minute.  Today, I have a card using one of Our Daily Bread Designs' past releases, Love Scriptures.
 
F456 - LOVE SCRIPTURES
 
This week, I stamped the sentiment on vellum (Versamark Embossing Ink) and used a white embossing powder to make it pop.  I used a die to frame/cut the sentiment and highlighted it with foliage from Fancy Foliage Die.

~ Wish You Were Here ~

Good morning!  I'm going through my scrap stack again and creating some quick and easy cards using Our Daily Bread Designs' August Release.  This time I used the Flip Flop Fun stamp set shown here...



I stamped a pair of flip flops and sentiment on a cream panel with black ink.  I matted it with a soft blue and nestled it on top of a blue bandana print DP lined with black card stock and a sliver of silver.  I placed the entire panel on a cream card stock base.  Super easy!  And a great way to use up paper I may have wasted. 
 

Additional Supplies

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs - Flip Flop Fun
Paper - Georgia Pacific, CTMH

~ Toes in the Sand ~

Welcome!  Thank you for stopping by!  Today, I have a card to share using Our Daily Bread Designs' Ocean Treasures set.  I found a sketch on Pinterest recently and decided to adapt it to this set using some paper scraps from Teresa Collins.

 

I matted everything with black card stock (Georgia Pacific) and placed it on a cream card stock base (Bazzill).  I stamped the sand dollar on Neenah Solar Crest and colored the image with Copics before hand cutting.  I stamped the sentiment from ODBD's Flip Flop Fun (Memento Tuxedo Black) and cut it with Our Daily Bread Designs' Pennant Dies.

I added a cream colored pearl spray after placing the sand dollar with dimensional foam.  So fun!  I can't wait to get my toes into some sand!  Until next time...
 
Blessings...

I printed my scripture on ecru card stock and cut to my desired size.  The card base measures 5.5 x 4.25 inches.  I chose a bright blue to coordinate with the DP I chose from Pebbles Family Ties paper collection.  For matting, I selected a bright yellow and deep green.  I added a few mulberry roses and paper punched leaves and branches for interest.  I love the bright colors!

~ Heaven and Earth ~

Good morning!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Today, I would like to share a card I created using paper scraps and a beautiful scripture stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs' Scripture Collection 12.  I am constantly reminded of the importance of reading God's word.  I equate it to not reading the owner's manual when you buy a new car.  I can't tell you how many times I have found a feature on a vehicle (often years later) that would have been incredibly useful if I had just known about it!  Can anyone else here relate????  I find it impossible to make sound decisions when I fail to have regular time in His word.  It's not only a matter of being obedient but a matter of survival.  We can't make sound decisions if we don't have all the facts!  It amazes me how the Lord can take a verse of scripture and speak to my heart.  It is so very personal and I love to find out each and every day what new insight He has for me!   
 
Today's card...

FENCE DIE
 
I pulled some scraps (bee themed) from my stash and matted them with brown card stock and placed the pieces on a white CS base.  My sentiment (stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black) was framed with a few wood accents pieces from my stash.  I added the fence at the bottom to give it a garden feel.  I love clearing out some of those well loved paper scraps, don't you?  Thanks for stopping in!

Until next time...

blessings...

This week we are visiting the New Testament...


This week, I decided to go with a white, gray and yellow color scheme.  I printed my scripture on white card stock and trimmed it to size, taking care to mat it with gold, white and gray card stock.  I chose gray for my card base (5.5 x 4.25) with white matting.  I pulled a chevron DP and yellow grid DP to give this more of a modern feel.  So what do you think?  It's very clean and simple...  and I LIKE it! 

Thanks for stopping by!
