Color Challenge ODBDSLC282


     Thanks for stopping in. Today, I have a card for the monthly challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. This month ODBD gave us a color scheme to work with.
     I decided this would be a great time to start on my Easter cards. I heat-embossed the eggs in a very light purple. Then, I die cut and adhered some with foam tape to give some dimension and interest. I also heat-embossed and die cut the basket. I attached foam tape in the middle of the basket and adhered the center of the handle and the bottom of the basket directly to the front panel with blue gel glue.

     There is still plenty of time to play along with us. Here's a link to the rules.

Paper Dress Card - DCWV Stack-a-holic, Jan 2017


     I'm wondering what happens if you cut an angel in half?!?
     It feels so so good to be back to my card making! I spent a lot of time browsing Pinterest and other web sites while my broken leg was healing these past five months. I saw a lot of paper dresses and wanted to try making one. I think the sketch from DCWV's challenge this month is the perfect forum for me to create my own paper dress.
     I used DCWV's The Painted Petals Stack, pre-embossed A2 cards and the clear Adhesive Jeweled Sheet to create my card. I began by die cutting two angels. Then, I cut the dark top-half off. I used the chad from the lighter purple to create an inlaid skirt. I used a heart for the bodice and diamonds for the waistband. Then, in a nod to my grannie who always made sure I had a nice and noisy cancan when I was growing up, I used a yellow flower die to create a cancan of sorts for my dress.
     There is still plenty of time to join in on the fun this month. Here's a link to the rules and a copy of the sketch we had to work with.
    And, so far, nothing bad has happened from my cutting an angel in half, so grab your scissors or paper trimmer and cut away.
     Other products used:

     Spellbinders Holiday and So Sweet dies
     Stampabilities Wire Dress Form stamp
     Fiskars That's Amore medium punch
     Our Daily Bread Designs Asters & Leaves die

     Thanks so much for stopping in. May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,

     So nice of you to stop in today. Since all my art supplies are still in storage after our move and while my broken leg heals, I wanted to share this black and silver Christmas card from a prior year. That post was the most popular among all my blog followers.
     I hope this card inspires you to create one of your own. I would love to see what you create. You can share it in the comments of today's post.
     I'll be back in a couple of weeks with more brand new posts and cards.

A Break -- I Mean a Real Break

     Looks like I'll be down awhile. The good news is that we sold our house. The bad news, when we were moving the furniture out, a big heavy piece fell, and I didn't get out of the way quite quick enough. Broke both bones in my lower leg. The best news is that the doc was able to fix everything!
     It was a very bad break and the doc has me on strict bed rest for a few weeks. Our new house is not ready yet, so we are staying with relatives. They are very gracious to me.
     When I find my papers and inks probably in late September, I'll be making cards again. Until then, I'll enjoy seeing what you guys make for your blogs.
     This is the day the Lord has made and I WILL rejoice and be glad in it!
     Thanks for stopping in, Pamela
