2nd Birthday Card using ODBD

The challenge at ODBD's is a two week Birthday challenge.  This is my second card made for it.
I used ODBD die cuts Asters and Leaves to cut out my flowers and leaves.
I used ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection to cut out a flower pot, and with the same paper I fussy cut out the shovel and tools/pot and added it to the one side of the flower pot.  I also cut out a tag and stamped on the Happy Birthday using ODBD Ornate Border Sentiments.

Happy Birthday

The challenge at ODBD this week (actually this challenge runs for 2 weeks this time) is Birthdays - and it's to use only ODBD stamps.
Birthday cards are always good to have on hand.  Probably will make another one for this challenge :-)     
To make my card I used one of the floral designs paper from the ODBD Blooming Garden Paper Collection for the base of my card.  I then layered a yellow scalloped cardstock over it.  I used ODBD stamp called Cupcake Plate, colored in with Promarkers.  I used Dimensional Magic on the cake plate to give it some dimension.  I then cut it out and attached it to my card.  I then stamped on the Happy Birthday using ODBD stamp set Ornate Border Sentiments.   I also added white ribbon down the left side and a white bow.

Bridal Shower Card

I went to a bridal shower yesterday for my niece.
This is the card that I made for her.  
I got the inspiration for this from a card I saw on Pinterest.
I embossed the background with a cloud pattern embossing folder.  The dress and umbrella are cut out using the Cricut cartridge Everyday Pop Up Cards.  The hearts were cut out with a punch, using the same patterned paper that I cut the umbrella out with.  I also put a white flower with a pearl in the center of it on the dress.

John 8:32

Made this card using this week's Scripture word art from
 Word Art Wednesday
I also used a Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss stamp that I purchased from Santoro London.
I spilled coffee on the insert card that has the name of the stamp, so I don't know the actual name of this stamp.   I do know the picture tube of this is called Pale Pink.   I colored the images in with Memento markers.  The Scripture is framed using a Spellbinders die cut, and I sponged pink ink around the edges of it.   I also sponged the same pink ink around all of the edges of the card.  I then added black flourishes.

Have A Good Day

I made this card using this color inspiration photo from Peachy Keen:

What inspired me was the window.  I cut the window frame out using the cricut Spring Cottage Cartridge. I made my own window shutters.  I colored in the background of my card with a blue Promarker...and also a green Promarker for the grass.
 I added flower brads to the flower box, added a fence and a flower shape sentiment that I wrote Have A Good Day and then stamped on this cute face using Peachy Keen Everyday Character Faces.

Happy Wedding Day

I made this wedding card for my niece who is getting married using a Darice Embossing Folder for the background.
Turns out the pattern matches this Spellbinders Die Cut called Fantastic Flourish One.  I cut it out and embossed it on pink cardstock.  I also used Spellbinders Blossom Tags and Accents for the sentiment, which I also embossed after cutting it out.   I stamped on Happy Wedding Day in black ink, and added two little white brads on each side.   I then added a pink sheer bow and a silver metal heart which has Love engraved in it.

I discovered a new challenge blog (new to me) called Die Cut Diva's and their June's challenge is called Is It Yours, Mine or Our's?    I chose the "Ours" theme which is to create a Wedding or Anniversary card.   So I am entering this card into it (my first post on this challenge blog.)

Mixed Media Journal

I had a nice writing tablet that the front cover was messed up on...so I decided to cover it and use it for a journal.  I started out by putting a white cardstock over it.  Then I embossed two smaller white cardstocks, one with a button pattern & one with a gears pattern.  After I attached those I put a thin layer of gesso over it all and then sprayed painted it with a lavender color.   I then added several different things to it - lace, a Flag sticker, a printed heart chipboard, 2 green glitter gems, a covered button, a cat, 2 different flower designs, heart clouds (the cat, 2 flower patterns & the cloud are all cut out from magazines), a silver metal flower, foam letters & a handmade red flower I made out of used dryer sheets, red spray paint, glitter glue, and a brad.

my "alter something" is the handmade red flower

White on White

I made this card for this weeks challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs...which is White on White.
I embossed my card with a Quatrefoil embossing folder.   I used ODBD Ornamental Crosses Die Cuts...cutting four different crosses out and then I layered them.  I also used ODBD Canning Jar Die Cuts (the small jar) and stamped on four of the word stamps from ODBD Sweet Williams small stamp set. I added white lace to the top of the two jars.   I then used ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern Die Cut to cut out the frame for the main wording, which is from ODBD The Cross stamp set.  I then added white pearls to the top of my card, and also on each side of the frame.

June Scrapbooking Challenge at Heart 2 Heart

It's time for a new monthly challenge at Heart 2 Heart Scrapbooking!

                                                           Everyday Journeys in June

         * 12" x 12" layout(s) all about an everyday life moment or personal journey you can share. We always scrapbook the special events and about everyone else. Now it's time to have a page or two about you. Make this a fun project for the scrapbook for future generations to see that you're not just a parent, grandparent, family member, or professional scrapbooker. Show us your inner diva, or that fun flying-by-your-pants person you know you are, or the journey you walk daily to make life better for yourself.
            * Incorporate (at least one) CTMH Flip Flaps.
            * At least 1 photo required.

Here is the layout that I made:
 My layout is showing the important things in my life that make my everyday life journey better.
My faith, family, friends, flowers and sewing.
I started out using CTMH blush pink cardstock for the basis of my layout.
I used the CTMH Artiste Cartridge to cut out my little scripture booklet, and also the rose flowers.
I added CTMH Flip Flaps to add pictures of flowers from our garden (there is one more flip flap underneath that also holds a picture of flowers.)   I used one of the chipboard Friend saying from the CTMH Skylark Complements, and the chipboard flower on the top left hand corner is from the CTMH Chantilly Complements.  Added some CTMH Clear Flourishes, the Celebrate sentiment from the CTMH Stella Complements, and a little dress cut out of vellum that I attached some silver washi tape to & pink dots.   I used CTMH stamp sets "Look To The Light" & "Family Love"

Hope you come on over and play along with us for our June's Heart 2 Heart Scrapbooking Challenge!
