SU Botanical Builder Dies

Tomorrow is Tuesday, and that means another week has gone by since the last Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  My card for tomorrow’s color challenge features the SU Botanical Builder Dies.  I think the floral dies are so pretty and can be combined in so many ways to create gorgeous flowers.

Vicki Dutcher (vdutchr) is the hostess for this week’s Color Challenge, and she asked us to use Stampin’ Up! colors of Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, and Emerald Envy. These colors are beautiful together!  Here is my card featuring the colors.

SU Botanical Builder Dies

To create the card, I began by cutting a Solar White card stock panel with the ODBD Majestic Medallion Die (the largest die).  Laying the die over the die cut, I used a Black Copic Multiliner to mark the edges.  Then I used the Saharan Screen Card Panel Die to cut out a Solar White stencil.  I laid the stencil over the Majestic Medallion die cut and, using SU Tempting Turquoise and Emerald Envy classic ink, I alternated sponging the inks across the stencil onto the other die cut.

The above photo shows the sponging, as well as a white embossed bird and birdcage. Vicki’s challenge included for dessert (i.e., extra points) the addition of a bird.  I also added red cardinals onto the sentiment piece that I made with the ODBD Ornate Ovals Dies (smallest die).  I added the sentiment, One-of-a-Kind, onto this piece in red ink.  The sentiment is from the Altenew One Of A Kind Stamp Set.  The following photo is of the sentiment.

For the foliage around the flowers, I used the ODBD Lovely Leaves Dies to create the leaves and sponged on Emerald Envy ink with different intensity so they would vary in color.  You can see the variations in the photo below.

After adhering the flowers to the card, I embellished them by placing Tempting Turquoise and/or Real Red candy dots in the centers.

I hope you are inspired by my card!  Thanks for stopping in and leaving comments!

ODBD Ornamental Crosses Sympathy Card

I find it difficult to make sympathy cards as, typically, there are a lot of emotions involved. However, I created this ODBD Ornamental Crosses Sympathy Card for a dear friend who lost a very special person in her life.  My heart breaks for her, but I know our Lord will carry her through this very difficult time!

ODBD Ornamental Crosses Sympathy Card

I used the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) dies and sentiment stamp to create the card. The card base is a piece of White Linen Card Stock to which I adhered  two die cuts from the ODBD Layered Lacey Ovals.

ODBD Ornamental Crosses Sympathy Card

I die cut three crosses with the ODBD Ornamental Crosses dies and glued them together. I adhered the crosses to the purple die cut, and stamped the sentiment at the bottom.  The sentiment is from ODBD Faith Card Sentiments.

ODBD Old Mill

Hello, visitors!!  I have for you today a card featuring the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Old Mill Stamp.  I prepared this card for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge for today (see below).

ODBD Old Mill

I love the ODBD Old Mill stamp as it reminds me of my home town in West Virginia (WV) where an old mill is located.  Have you heard of Babcock State Park in WV?  The park has this old mill called, The Glade Creek Grist Mill.  These two pictures are of the mill in the summer and fall.

Babock State Park – Glade Creek Grist MillGlade Creek Grist Mill

The following is a picture of the mill that my niece gave me.  She is a professional photographer and she took the picture during the fall.  I keep it hanging in my craft room as it reminds me of home.

Babcock State Park Crist Mill_1The Glade Creek Grist Mill was completed in 1976.  Fully operational, the mill was built as a recreation of one that once ground grain on Glade Creek long before Babcock Park became a state park.  Known as Cooper’s Mill, it stood on the present location of the park’s administration building parking lot.

Of special interest, the mill was created by combining parts and pieces from three mills that once dotted the state of WV.  The basic structure of the mill came from the Stoney Creek Grist Mill which dates back to 1890.  It was dismantled and moved piece by piece to Babcock from a spot near Campbelltown in Pocahontas County, WV.  After an accidental fire destroyed the Spring Run Grist Mill near Petersburg, Grant County, WV, only the overshot water wheel could be salvaged.  Other parts for the mill came from the Onego Grist Mill near Seneca Rocks, Pendleton County, WV.

A living monument to the over 500 mills that thrived in WV at the turn of the century, the Glade Creek Grist Mill provides freshly ground cornmeal that park guests may purchase, depending on availability and stream conditions.  Visitors to the mill may journey back to the time when grinding grain by a rushing stream was a way of life, and the groaning mill wheel was music to the miller’s ear.

As a teenager, I spent a lot of time at the state park, sitting on rocks near the mill.  At adulthood, I spend a lot of time with relatives having family reunions at the park.  These memories swirled around in my head as I was coloring the image on my card!  Here are some additional photos of the card.
