Mother and Child



     Hello again!  We're continuing on with our biweekly challenge at Shining the Light with Our Daily Bread Designs.  It's Anything Goes using only ODBD images. 
ODBD, Mother and Child, Midnight Clear, Matting Circles die, Fancy Foliage die, designer Linda Carson
 
     Again I chose to use the background stamp A Midnight Clear.  It's a beautiful image, versatile and looks good stamped on patterned paper. I paired the background with the Mother and Child ornament.
     The ornament was cut using the new Matting Circles dies.  I then used embossing powder to enhance the image.  The ornament is hanging from a sprig using Fancy Foliage die.
     Please visit the other designers on the Challenge Team for more inspiration.

Pumpkin


 
     Welcome!  We're continuing the biweekly challenge at Shining the Light with Our Daily Bread Designs with a photo challenge.  Here again are the photos you can chose from.
 

This week I went with the pumpkin photo.
ODBD, Pumpkin, Pumpkin die, Doily die, designer Linda Carson
     As you can see I chose the Pumpkin image with the Pumpkin die.  I really love this pumpkin with its huge leaves.  I added dimension by coloring a second set of leaves and popped them up using 3-D Silicone.  It's also called Scrap Dots and comes in a tube.  Using this product you can adjust the height to your preference instead of pop dots.  It's great for smaller items.    
     I embossed the Doily die behind the pumpkin.  The rest are embellishments of stitching, burlap ribbon, twine and a button.  It's a hard/soft take on the photo
     Now it's time for you to visit the rest of the Challenge Team for more inspiration:

     I've always wanted to make one of these flower pot cards.  ODBD sells pre-cut, pre-fold Fun and Fancy Fold cards.  This flower pot card is one of those Fancy Folds available.  I used 3 different ODBD die cuts, Aster and Leaves, Beautiful Borders and Fancy Foliage.   The papers are Teresa Collins.

Happy Birthday

Linda Carson, Verve

     Hello!  Today I took some Cosmo Cricket papers and made a card using this week's Deconstructing Jen's sketch with a Verve sentiment.
     The embellishment came with the papers.  I normally don't use those but this one worked just fine especially since I didn't like what I originally had in mind.
     I have a little tip of something I do.  When I use a sketch that I like from a challenge I'll sketch it out in a notebook.  After making the card I'll go back and measure the length and width of each element, square, etc. and jot those on the sketch in the notebook.  This way the next time I make a card using the sketch it's a breeze to come together.  I hope all that made sense and may be something you might try.
     Thanks for dropping by!  Enjoy your day!
