We appreciate our sponsor's generosity so very much!  Please take a few moments to thank those who provided our prizes this week!  
This week we are visiting the book of James...  a powerful reminder of where our blessings come from...

This week, I decided to use die cuts to create a turkey image.  I printed our scripture on Kraft paper and used a circle die to cut it and a smaller circle for the head.  I split a leaf paper punch (red CS) to create the gobbler.  The beak is also a die cut.  I chose a variety of Thanksgiving/Fall themed papers and used an oval die to create feathers.  A few bits of dimensional foam, help him jump off the page! 

Thanks for taking a few moments to stop by!  And have a wonderful Thanksgiv…

WAW159 ~ Psalm 100:4 ~ Thanksgiving

This week we are visiting the book of Psalms and receiving words of Thanksgiving...

This is an amazing scripture!  Thanksgiving should be every day and not just one day each year.  This challenges my heart on so many levels.  When I pray, do I have the right attitude...  gratitude and thankfulness?  Do my actions show my gratitude and bless others?  Am I truly thankful for each and every blessing?  Do I recognize everything is a blessing from above and not because of something I have done?  AND I don't deserve any of those things?  WOW! 
What a wonderful way to celebrate the middle o…

~ Let Us Adore Him ~

Image
Good morning!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Today, I am using several products from Our Daily Bread Designs' November Release including a new paper collection, dies and stamps!  I even pulled out some old photo corners from my scrapbooking days... (And yes, I had to knock the dust off of them...)   ;-)
Here's a close up of the poinsettia...  I used a gold ink to emboss the leaves after die cutting...

I started with a blue card stock base (5.5 x 4.25 inches) and added a pink mat.  I used the largest rectangular die from the Flourished Star Pattern Die and cut my DP base with the new Christmas Paper Collection 2014.  I picked a coordinating pattern from the DP set and nested the largest patterned die from Flourished Star Pattern Die and the Splendorous Stars Die to create the "window" for my sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment (Come Let Us Adore Him ) on the DP before adding the top layer with dimensional foam.  I positioned gold photo corners on each corner of the b…

A Look Back at Our Daily Bread Designs' November Release

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs'  November Release,  Here is the card I created using Come Let Us Adore Him, His Birth and the new Flourished Star Pattern Die. I stamped the stars from His Birth  on Kraft paper using a white pigment ink.  I then used a thinned white craft paint and old tooth brush to create "speckles" on the background.  I stamped the star image (Come Let Us Adore Him) with black ink before adding a Kraft die cut layer with jet bead embellies.  Here are the new items you see today... 

and a few older ones I used to create the poinsettia and greens... For more inspiration using the November Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog. Don't forget to visit all of the "Bread Sticks" and see what they have created for you!  Blessings...

Good morning and thank you for stopping by!  Today I have a fun project incorporating plaid and some fun new dies/stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs. This time I started with a 5.25 x 5.25 black card stock base, adding a mat of red, green and a dash of plaid. 

I stamped the sentiment on white card stock with black ink.
And added a star accent using layers from the following dies... Plaid layer...  White Card Stock Layer 

and the final gold layer  Fun and so easy to put together!  Next time you put a card together, try using a large white space!  I love how it opens this card up and really accents the plaid.  Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time, blessings...

Happy Friday!  Today, I have a simple card using a few items from Our Daily Bread Designs. The colors are a trendy gray, black and white palette.
I started with a gray 5.5 x 4.25 card base and added a white CS mat.  I selected some beautiful star themed silver/gray and white paper from the Winter Paper Collection and used the largest rectangular die base (Flourished Star Pattern Die) to cut my decorative panel. I stamped the sentiment from Reach for the Starson white paper and custom cut a banner and black mat. I nestled a gray die cut on top (under the sentiment panel)  using an earlier release Quatrefoil Pattern Die. The seam binding bow is a custom dyed bow.  I used a black distress ink and some sparkling Angel Glimmer Mist to make my own...  I love the gray distressed look!  Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time, Blessings...
