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 Gladiolus – You Bless Me – ODBDSLC276

Gladiolus flowers are so beautiful, and they come in a large array of colors.  The Gladiolus flower was my Mom’s favorite flower.  When I saw the Gladiolus stamp from the ODBD Gladiolous – You Bless Me stamp set, I immediately thought of her.  So this card is in memory of her.

ODBD Gladious - You Bless Me

This card will be submitted to Our Daily Bread Designs for it’s July challenge, ODBDSLC276, Anything that Grows with ODBD.  The challenge requires the use of at least one stamp from either ODBD, North Coast Creations, or Artistic Outpost.  This card is created with two ODBD products; the frame die cut and the red Gladiolus stamp.

ODBD Gladious - You Bless MeI submitted this card to the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge.  The challenge was to create a card and “decorate all the way to the border. Add lace to the edge, color to the edge, stamp off the edge, die cut your card with a fancy die cut whatever you do go all the way to the border.”  Therefore, I used the largest die from the ODBD Vintage Border Dies to create my card in the form of the die.

I also submitted the card for two other Splitcoaststampers Challenges: 1) F4A334, “add some sort of frame (it can be diecut, punched, stamped, embossed, etc.) to your lovely creation” . Because my card is made in the form a frame die, I decided to submit the same card for this challenge.  2) IC554, Petals, which was to draw inspiration from a website full of gorgeous floral arrangements.

If interested, you may read all the wonderful Splitcoaststampers comments on this card HERE.  You will note that the card was selected as a Favorite For The Week Ending 7/17/16, as well as a CAS (Clean and Simple) favorite.

[Jesus said,] “But I tell you who hear me:  Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.  If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other cheek, turn to him the other also.  If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.”  Luke 6:27 – 29 (NIV)


ODBD Quilted With Love

Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest piece of artwork, which features Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Quilted With Love Stamp Set.  The sentiment on the card is from the Quilted With Love Stamp Set.

ODBD Quilted With Love

I made this card for two challenges on Splitcoaststampers –  TLC581, Fancy Piercing, and CAS372, Love the Chips.  Judy (StampingQueenJAR) hosted the TLC581 challenge which is to create fancy paper piercing.  Holly (hbrown) hosted the CAS372 challenge that involves using chipboard.  Both were great challenges!!

(UPDATE:   This card was selected as a Favorite for the week ending April 17 on Splitcoaststampers!)

For TLC581, I hand pierced around the flowers and vase. For CAS372, I made the vase from white chipboard that I cut three of and glued together as the chipboard was not a thick as I wanted.

I decided I would try for a second time to use Brushos.  For some odd reason, it was easier this time.  I used them to create the background behind the flowers.  I angled the application so the paper piercing would show on the bottom portion of the card.

Come back soon!
