May I be willing

Today is Our Daily Bread designs rewind of the latest release. Some beautiful creations with the newest goodies you surely do not want to miss from everyone. Check out the ODBD Blog for more details.

I went with a blue and white creation (imagine that) with stamp set The Cross. First is a base layer of white card stock, with some of the beautiful patterned paper Christian Faith Collection  layered next. I didn't want to cover up all that beautiful paper so I die cut the awesome Vintage Flourish Pattern ODBD Custom die with white card stock. Before I added that to the front of the card, I pulled through my ribbon so I could tie a bow in the center. Then added dimensionals to the die and layered onto the designer paper. Die cut the sentiment using Elegant Ovals ODBD Custom die and added a tiny cross from the new Ornamental Crosses ODBD Custom die. Accented with a few white pearls and voila! I adore how this turned out.

Be sure to check out all the creations from the DT today:

I have him stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with various Copic markers. A simple layer onto some kraft card stock. The twine is tied off with a cute Button Die light with a few jewels for accent.

Added down the one side a heart border using Hearts Lace Border Die light. The sentiment is from I heart You in the Simply Maya collection. Voila! More sneaks to come and be sure to check out the WOJ Blog for more details and challenges.

Miss Anya Journal

I altered this $1 journal/notebook that I found at our local craft store. The vibrant pink binding is what drew me to it originally and then for $1 it makes a great gift for the kids. I donated a few like this to the boys school class auction this week. Needless to say they went for a pretty penny (not actual money) but money they earned for the quarter. The girls really liked them so I guess I need to create some more. I have a Altered Notebook Tutorial if you find you want to create your own. See you tomorrow with this weeks Featured Stamper creation. Have a wonderful evening!

Cup of joy

Happy Friday! I a ready for the weekend and sleeping in, how about you? If its nice weather I might be up early trying to plant some fresh flowers but we will see how it goes. Today is a simple lavendar cup of joy for you using the beautiful Marcella's Mixtape stamp set at Power Poppy. I stamped the cup onto white card stock and colored with Copic markers.
Wanted to play with my square shapes so I grabbed some for fun. This paper is from an Authentique pack that I bought a few weeks ago and I am about out. Fresh and springy feeling don't you think? Added some more of my Candi dots and a ribbon bow. Inside is a birthday sentiment. Voila!  Have a wonderful weekend!
