I have a secret...

Everyone knows how much I love Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps. Take a sneaky peeky at my labels and you will see I have used them in at least 41 posts! So I was thrilled to be asked to join their challenge team as a guest during March and April. March will be a big month! Look for some fabulous new sets and some special treats as the company celebrates it's 3rd anniversary.

March is a big month for me as well! I will celebrate the big 40! Alright, I admitted it.... So in honor of ODBD and the fact I am celebrating a BIG milestone I decided to revisit one of my ODBD cards. I promise I will be back soon with some fun new stuff. Could I be repeating things because of my age? lol... Check out the announcement HERE.

Be sure to play along each Saturday with us!

This week's challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs involves creating something bright and white! The idea is to make a card with minimal coloring. This is something that is particularly challenging for me. (I guess that's why it is called a challenge, right?) I love color! It just seems strange to not pulled out the bright designer paper and card stock.

I have created this type of card one time before and surprisingly I REALLY liked the results. Naturally, I thought it was all a coincidence and that I really could not make this type of card. So with that thought in the back of my head, I set about to work on the ODBD challenge. And did I surprise myself! I really LOVE the results this time and I hope you do to! Take a look and take the challenge yourself! Freedom from color rocks! Have a wonderful Sabbath day!


Card Recipe

5 x 6 inch designs

Card stock - Georgia Pacific - card, Neenah - Image
Ink - Image - Memento - Tuxedo Black, Copic
Ink - Sentiment - Memento - Grape Jelly
Ink - Background - Memento - Summer Sky
Image - Stamp and Sentiment - Our Daily Bread Designs - The Lord Has Risen
Punch - Martha Stewart
Embossing - Provocraft - Swiss Dots Folder
Smooch Spritz - Vanilla Shimmer
Scor Buddy
Die Cuts - Spellbinders - Fleur De Lis Pendant, Labels One
Corner Rounder - 1/4 in - Crop A Dile
Pearls - Scrappers Must Haves
Adhesive - Scotch Brand Foam Tape


1. The body of the card was cut to 10 x 6 inches and scored at the 5 inch point with my
Scor Buddy.

2. The second layer was cut to 5 X 6 inches and edged on two sides with MS punch.
Adhere to base with adhesive foam.

3. The third layer was cut to 5 x 6 inches, embossed with the Swiss dots folder leaving
approximately 3/4 in outside of the embossing folder. I then highlighted the non
embossed areas by scoring those in my Scor Buddy.

4. I cut my pendant and smaller pendant out of card stock. These components along
with the embossed layer were covered with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch and allowed to dry.

5. I colored my image and then cut/embossed it with the Labels One die. Once this was
done, I lightly sponged around the edges with the Summer Sky ink BEFORE removing
the die.

6. Once the Swiss Dot base was dry, I adhered it to the punched layer. I then layered
the pendant fleur de lis and the smaller pendant (which I cut in two and placed on
each side as a second layer).

7. After layering and adhering to the card, I stamped my verse on card stock, cut it down
and used my corner rounder to soften the edges. I adhered it with foam dots and
embellished with pearls!
