Our Daily Bread Design, anything goes

Anything goes at Our Daily Bread Design this week.   I made a 5x7 landscape card and used the pretty Spellbinder label 11 and Exquisite labels 11.  The beautiful poinsettia and matching die are from ODBD and I colored it with copics. I popped it up on the front and finished the card with some bling and ribbon.

The Shabby Tea Room, The Splendor of Fall

I made this cute Crafty Secrets card for the challenge on The Shabby Tea Room.   I started with a 6x6 card, cut the soft beige layer 5.5 square and ran it through the cuttlebug 6 inch square dots folder. I used some brown satin ribbon on the corners. The Spellbinders label 17 was used for the image and back layer.  I edge those in gold also.  Cheery Lynn Victorian Romance Flourish was used on the corner with the Chrysanthemum strip for the dark red flower.  I added some Petaloo leaves and a gold gem to center of the flower.

Things with Wings for Cheery Lynn

Things with wings is the challenge on  Cheery Lynn this week.   This is a 6x6 card, I used the silver stackers circle for the gold base and then made a frame from the smaller ones.  I cut lots of the holly leaves border from glossy paper that I used the alcohol technique on the paper.  I added some wreath strip in between the leaves.  The pretty butterflies are from the small and medium exotic butterfly collections.  The bow is from wreath and bow set.

Make a Good Impression

Make a good impression is the challenge on Flourishes.  This is a 5x7 card, the gold mirror card was embossed with a holly folder, the pretty Gold Majesty Circles were used for the center dies and I embossed them and cut them out and then sponged some plum ink on them. The image poinsettia and pine stamp was embossed with gold and H2O's to color it.  I added some spellbinders corners which were embossed and cut out and sponged also.  I added a bow to finish the card.

The Sept prerelease challenge on Flourishes is a shaped card or 3-D object.  I chose the gorgeous Autumn Blossoms stamp set and colored it with copics in fall colors.  All of the dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs.  

Bouquet of Happy Wishes

I found this beautiful paper on Pinterest and hand cut it out. I backed it with Enchanted Labels 28 and used the Labels 28 for the saying.  I added lots of bling with pretty pre-made flowers, pearls and leaves from Michaels and Hobby Lobby.  The lace is from Flourishes.

One layer including dies

Well I'm not sure why anyone would want a one layer card but that is the challenge and it's hard!!!! Our Daily Bread Design challenged us to no extra layers this week.  We could do one layer on top of the card including any dies.  I chose their sweet Precious Boy stamp set and stamped it in Memento rich cocoa.  Tea Dye distressed ink for the edges and a 6x6 cuttlebug folder for the embossing. i just added a few gems to finish the card.   

Double the ribbon

I made this pretty Dahlia card for Flourishes Double the Ribbon challenge. I stamped the image on cryogen white paper with memento black ink and colored it with copics.   The card is 5x7 and the die cuts for the three layers are from Flourishes Enchanted Labels and Labels 28. The pretty little pink side pieces are Marianne dies,  The mini fanciful flourish is from Cheery Lynn, there are right and left in this die cut. The two ribbons are the bow and the light lavender piece around the center, silk ribbons from Flourishes.   I'm also entering this in the challenge on The Shabby Tea Room's Sweet Summertime challenge.
