A Rustic Christmas



Yes, this card is a little darker than my usual fare. Honestly though if you took a peek in my home you would see a very different story from the pinks, blues and "frilly" things I prefer in card making. I guess that means I am a well rounded individual and my inner girly girl is trying to get out!!!!! So I wanted to share a little peek at some of the little touches in my home this season. And maybe you can see why I picked the dark colors I did....



The scale belonged to my Dad. He used it on our farm for various things. After my Dad passed away, my Mom remained on the farm for eleven more years. Finally after 42 years of living in the same place it came time to move Mom closer to me. We sorted, packed and pitched countless items. Many things went to auction. But for some reason I could not part with this. It seemed such a real reminder of who my Dad was... ever practical and attentive to detail. So I salted it away for another 4 years before finally pulling it out. And where did it land? It has a place of prominence on my bathroom counter with a lovely sprig of faux cedar and a distressed timepiece in the center. And you know what? I love it there... So now you can see why frilly things are so different for me. I like rust, prim, black and country...

Thanks for visiting and maybe I will share some other "snapshots" of life here...

Don't forget to stop by Saturday as we will have another Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge!

Blessings...

The Shabby Tea Room #90 - Winter Picnic


Well it's time for another fabbo challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. This week I am truly honored to be submitting a card as a guest designer. I'm a little nervous about the whole thing! Have you seen some of the amazing things those ladies come up with? Wow! So while I shake my head in wonderment you can check my humble submission below. The inspiration photo for this challenge is above. The crew is looking for creations with

White or Cream, Silver and Glitter

And here's mine...



The base is simple white card stock. I then cut a slightly smaller layer and paper punched the edges with an eyelet punch. I then lightly covered the eyelet ends with glitter glue and poured on the crystal coarse glitter glue. After letting it set, I shook off the excess and added it to the base with dimensional foam. The next layer is a shiny piece of silver card stock. I added a ribbon trim along the bottom that has silver and crystal hanging beads. The final base layer is a 5 x 5 piece of white card stock. I attached woven bias tape, securing it on the back with simple scotch tape. I bought a package of the Wright's Bias Tape Single Fold for this project. After placing it with dimensional foam I pulled out my dies. The silver base for the sentiment is from Spellbinders Holly Motifs. I stamped the sentiment in black and cut it with Spellbinders Standard Circles Large. The white rose is a cut from Cricut Flower Shoppe. I added a pearl in the center and a few paper punched branches (white) and silver leaves (Spellbinders Foliage). The stick pin is one I made with a pearl topped pin and some beads I had on hand. This lovely sentiment is from an upcoming release at Our Daily Bread Designs called aptly, Simple Things. It will be available on December 1st! Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Ingredients

Paper - American Craft, Colorbok; Stamp - Our Daily Bread Designs - Simple Things (available December 1st); Ink - Versafine Onyx Black; Dies - Spellbinders Holly Motifs, Standard Circles Large, Cricut - Flower Shoppe; Paper Punches - EK Success; Pearls, Ribbon Trim; Crystal Coarse Glitter; Custom Stick Pin; Bias Tape - Wrights Single Fold

The Shabby Tea Room #89 - Colors of Nature



This week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room is called the Colors of Nature. Participants have been asked to use the above photo for inspiration! Wow! Aren't the colors amazing? And I just love flowering cabbage! I sure wish I could figure out how to do this arrangement for my front door!

And here is my very humble interpretation...



The base is kraft paper and I have added a layer of distressed Basic Grey paper. Underneath I added a little ecru trim from a set I purchased at Hobby Lobby. I then added a rich red bow. The beauty of this? It came off of a soap and lotion set I bought for my bathroom! I snagged that and added it to my stash immediately! I then added some artificial leaves I found in a huge bag at my local dollar store for you guessed it... $1! The button is a wooden one I stained with a Copic marker (V04) taking pains to make it look rough. I pulled gold wire through it and wrapped it around a small pencil for added interest. The final touches include one of my favorite ODBD sets (Harvest Blessings) stamped on kraft with a dark orange ink! Thanks so much for stopping by and come back tomorrow to see my post for the coming Shabby Tea Room Challenge! I am so honored and excited to be this week's guest designer! Blessings...

ODBDSLC86 Recipe Challenge - Ribbon, Lace & Glitter



I love a good recipe! And today the challenge team is working with three essential card ingredients (especially at Christmas time).... Ribbon, Lace and Glitter...

And let me just tell ya alot of glitter managed to make it on my floor for this one...

For the snowflake I used 3 layers of the SB Create a Flake One plus a tiny negative star piece I had left from one of the original cuts. I applied glitter glue to each layer and dusted them with crystal coarse glitter. After letting them cure I adhered the layers together with dimensional glue dots. The final snowflake was placed on a Picot Edge Circle cut. I also used a paper crimper on the bottom layer of white card stock for some added interest! Thanks so much for reading and I pray you have a wonderful week!

Here's how to play...

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!!

Giving Thanks



For all my friends in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving! I will be spending this one with my step-son's family. We are looking forward to turkey and all the trimmings, parades and maybe a football game or two! After the mess is gone many people will pull out the paper and start making their Friday shopping list. Of course many have already scoped out the online ads weeks ago!

There are so many things to be thankful for at the Ulrich home this year. And most certainly one of mine is the chance to spend time today with family and friends. We are all healthy and happy! What a blessing that is these times! I am thankful to live in a country where I can do what I love and say what I wish. There is no fear of persecution or retaliation for being a Christian. And most importantly, I am so thankful for my Lord who gave his life on Calvary for me.

What a blessing it is to work with such fine folks at Our Daily Bread Designs. Kelley and crew have such wonderful hearts! And in celebration of what we as a team are thankful for Kelley is starting a Giving Thanks sale at ODBD today! We are thankful for our customers who make this such a special place and in appreciation of that you can take advantage of 10% off and FREE Shipping.

Exploring Cricut - Let's Talk Turkey!

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only a few days away? Yikes! This year has flown by (no pun intended...) There are so many things I am thankful for this year. I am thankful for my family, wonderful career and I am thankful for you! I have met some wonderful folks while blogging the last few years. Your wonderful comments, support and prayers mean so much! Thank you for being you! I pray this Thanksgiving will find you surrounded by loved ones sharing and creating family memories!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Exploring Cricut has issued a challenge for us to talk turkey! The design team was asked to create a project using our favorite Cricut turkey. I started out creating "Tom" for a floral arrangement but decided he would serve my purposes better on a scrapbook page. After all, I plan on taking some Thanksgiving photos this year! Enjoy and don't forget to hop over to Exploring Cricut to link your creations! You just might win! Blessings...

Stamping In Time (SNTODBD48)

It's time to grab your adhesive, favorite designer papers and your trusty Our Daily Bread Design stamps! This week Betty has a wonderful challenge for us!

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD48)! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge this rotation is to create Christmas cards, gift packaging, gift ideas or anything festive you can think of to share with a Christmas theme!

Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!

And now here is my creation for the week...



Ingredients

Papers - American Craft, Colorbok, Echo Park Season's Greetings by Lori Whitlock; Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs - Christmas Blessings; Ink - Versafine Onyx Black; Dies - Spellbinders - 2011 Heirloom Ornaments, Holly Motifs; Pearls


This card was really pretty easy to do. First I selected two nesting dies from the Heirloom Ornaments set. I centered the smallest one on my plaid layer and cut. I then nested the two together on the green DP and cut my ornament "frame." I placed the frame on the plaid layer and after placing this on top of the red layer, centered and stamped my sentiment. I sprinkled a few pearls at the bottom to highlight the plaid pattern along with one simple pearl at the top. Easy peasy....

Now for some more inspiration be sure to check out the other designers and their work! Leave the ladies some love! Thanks so much for stopping in! Blessings...

Every Lady Needs Some Pearls

Thanks so much for stopping by! It has been a wonderful week! In just a few, I will be enjoying an entire week of vacation. Usually, I spend the week of Thanksgiving in a dead run. And last year was no exception! Yet, when it was all said and done my beloved Christmas decorating had gone to the wayside. This year I will do better! And hopefully a week off will help me accomplish that goal!

There are so many things to do this time of year. Our home includes some special touches around the holidays. I always enjoy taking the items out of storage and reliving the memories that go with each one. Many of the ornaments for our tree were purchased on special vacations. It is so nice to relive being at the top of the Empire State Building, exploring the French Quarter of New Orleans or walking the beaches of Amelia Island, Florida. There are also ornaments that are special to John's sons including wooden ornaments they made as children and items that were on their family tree before their Mother's untimely passing... These are the special items that make our place a HOME.

So with today's card I wanted to do something feminine and even nostalgic. I wanted something that screamed elegance, grace and beauty. Naturally it had to have pearls! Nothing dresses up an outfit like pearls! And this beauty is no exception... Over the last few months I have been working with a new blog called Exploring Cricut. And it really has challenged me to use those cartridges I already have! For this card I utilized Forever Young and Storybook. Both are very chic and girly-girl!!! So perfect for those feminine cards we all need to whip up!

So when you are dressing up your home this season don't forget to give yourself a little attention too! Pamper yourself just a little...

Blessings...

What about some MOJO???

I find myself asking this more lately... Where is it??? So I decided the best place to find my mojo would be playing along at Mojo Monday. After all they have some awesome sketches and I figured that would be a fun way to stretch my creativity! And it certainly helps to have some great products in your craft stash...



Kinda bold colors for me! But when you have coordinating paper pads... they take all the work out of it! The designer paper I selected is by My Mind's Eye (Rosy). I did use one sliver of Webster's Pages (hounds tooth) which came from the Hollywood Vogue & WonderFALL combo pack. I created the circle using my Cricut George Cartridge (4.75 inch circle cut).

So hopefully this will be the start of a surge in mojo...

Blessings...
