SU Papillon Potpourri

Today’s card share features the SU Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set, along with the SU Creative Elements Stamp Set and ODBD Many Thanks Stamp Set.  However, the main feature is the five beautiful butterflies stamped, using the old Rock ‘n’ Roll Technique.  If you’e not familiar with this technique, there is a great tutorial on Splitcoastampers (SCS).

ODBD Dresden Quilt Die

Happy Friday, my friends!!!  My project for you today features Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Dresden Quilt Die.  The ODBD Dresden Quilt Die was released, among other wonderful products, on April 1.  The ODBD’s product release focused on quilts through dies, stamps, and designer paper.  Below is a picture of the ODBD Dresden Quilt Die. If interested, you can purchase the die by clicking on the above link.

Here is the card I made using the die.  If you look closely at the die and card, you’ll notice that I made a modification to the die cuts.

(MAY 1, 2016 UPDATE:  This card was in the favorites for the week on Splitcoaststampers.com)

(MAY 3 , 2016 UPDATE:  As noted below, I entered this card into Our Daily Bread Designs’ Shining The Light Challenge.  I just learned that this card is the winner for the challenge!!  I am so surprised and grateful to ODBD!  Thank you so much to the team that made the decision.  You can see the related information HERE!)


I think the colors of the ODBD designer papers really look great on the card.  I made the card yesterday in response to a “Ways To Use It” Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  The Challenge, WT581, Playing Safe, was hosted by Toni (aka ravengirl) and was in recognition of National Playground Safety Week. The challenge was to “break out some of your favorite toy images” and feature one in a project.

When I read the challenge, I started reminiscing about my children as youngsters and how they loved sitting at the table with Mom, putting together puzzles, one of their favorite “toys”!  Well, the word, puzzle, was the trigger for me and my project.

I immediately thought of ODBD’s April Release related to quilts.  Why?  To me, crafting with the ODBD released quilt dies requires putting together a “puzzle”, and it takes time, or at least for me.  Therefore, the quilt represents the puzzles my children loved.  And they were in a safe environment, as they were sitting with me playing with puzzles and not playing on the playground!  Of course they had other favorite “toys” and certainly played on a playground!


I am also entering this card for the Our Daily Bread Designs, ODBDSLC273 O-D-B-D Recipe Challenge.  The recipe challenge is to use 4 items, materials or techniques beginning with each letter in ODBD.  The following is my response:

O – Old Glory Paper Pack

D – Dresden Quilt Die

B – Buttons

D – Double Stitched Rectangles Dies


I hope you enjoyed my card, and thanks for leaving comments!

SU Birthday Blooms

Hello and thanks for stopping by!!  My card share today features the SU Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.

(UPDATE:  The WONDERFUL news about this card is that it was selected as the favorite card for the week of those submitted to Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (see below) last Tuesday).

Birthday Blooms_1

As alluded to above, I created this card to submit to a Splitcoaststampers (SCS) Color Challenge, CC580 – Daffodil Island Garden.  The colors for the challenge are Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, and Garden Green, which are Stampin’ Up! colors.  Vicki Dutcher (vdutcher), SCS member, was the wonderful host who selected these colors for the challenge.  I love blues and yellows together, so I enjoyed this challenge; it was a great color combination.

Vicki offered “dessert” if leaves were included in participants’ submission.  As you can see, they are part of the floral image on my card.

I stamped the floral image in VersaMark, added white embossing powder, and heat set it. I used the ZIG pens to watercolor the floral image, using colors as close as possible to those for the challenge. I got a little heavy-handed with the blue color at first, as this was the first time I’ve used the ZIG pens. After completion, I fussy cut the image and adhered it to a double-stitched Whisper White circle that is framed with a Garden Green double-stitched frame.

I used Daffodil Delight card stock for my card base.  I added a piece of designed acetate for the first layer, and it is from an old SU designer series paper (don’t recall the name). Then I used a old and wide piece of blue SU ribbon, stamping on my “Thank You” greeting.

I hope you enjoy the card!
