Anything Goes with Scripture - ODBDSLC252

     So nice of you to stop in today. It means a lot to me.
     Today, my card is for the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. The challenge was to create a card of any design using scripture. This is one of my favorite scriptures when I am strong enough to give things to the Lord and stop 'helping' Him fix things. LOL
     The sentiment stamp is from ODBD's Phil #C142 collection. I also used my very favorite die of all time - Fancy Foliage, also from ODBD. It's the swirly vine. I did cut it in half to get it just how I wanted it to be in my design.
     I heat embossed the sentiment using violet pigment and clear embossing powder. Next, I die cut the label. I like stamping first before cutting because if I get the sentiment crocked, I can adjust the placement of the die. I adhered it with foam tape to fit over the diamonds. Aren't those gorgeous diamonds!?!
     The other products I used on my card are: Spellbinders dies - Labels Eighteen #S4-310, and Gilded Life trim #GLLD-001. The beautiful purple cardstock is from Recollections Cool Waters #221136, and the adhesive jeweled sheet #EM-035-00043 is from DCWV.
     Thanks again for stopping in. May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, Pamela


Magazine Monday 115 With a Twist

     Thanks so much for stopping in today. Hope you day is off to a great start.
     This week's Magazine Monday 115 challenge at PaperCrafter's Corner is a take on the fun, adult coloring books that are so popular right now.
     There are lots of free coloring pages online which is what I have used for my card. The page was an 8.5x11 sheet of these gorgeous fish to color. As you can see I only colored one fish and let the others serve as a background. I got my page from the list of free pages on PaperCrafter's Corner blog.
     I colored my image with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers - TB3, IB1, CT1, CT3, PP3, and PP5. I also tried colored pencils and Crayola markers. I liked the Spectrum Noir markers best, but they all looked good.
     And since I really love sparkles, I had to add a big diamond flourish to my card. I trimmed my coloring page and matted it with matching colors of cardstock. My sticker letters came from a big box of scrapbooking supplies I bought at a garage sale for $10!!! Got the diamonds from the box too.
     Here's the link if you want to play along with us. Be sure to check out all the free coloring pages while you are there.
     May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands, Pamela


DCWV Stack-a-holic Card Sketch Challenge - August 2015

     Thanks for stopping in. Hope your day is off to a good start.
     Today, I have a card for the Stack-a-holic challenge over at DCWV. I used The Good Wood Stack from DCWV to make my card. Some great masculine papers in the stack. I made this card for my stepdad's birthday coming up soon.
     I made the swags with stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs. The 'cherish you' sentiment is from the I Blank You collection from Paper Smooches.
     There is still plenty of time if you want to send a card to the challenge. Here's a copy of the sketch we had to work with and a link to all the rules.


Magazine Monday #111 Challenge

     I created this card for the Magazine Monday #111 challenge at PaperCrafter's Corner.
     When I saw this week's magazine cover with its bold, graphic stripes on the swim suit and sun hat, I immediately thought of this sheet of cardstock from DCWV's Chick Chat Stack. I matted the front panel and the tags with a dark navy blue and added some epoxy dots.

Color Challenge ODBDSLC249

     So happy to have you stop by. Today, I have a card for the color challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

     The colors in this week's challenge are my favorite colors to work with. You can find the colors and a link to all the fun below.
     I used the No Words (G515) stamp collection from ODBD for this card. ODBD has some of the best sentiment stamps on the market.
     To make my heart chain, I first ran some cardstock through a crimper. I punched some small hearts from the crimped cardstock. I set the hearts aside for another project. Next, I punched a larger heart right over the negative space of the first heart. After deciding how I wanted my hearts to interlock, I made a cut in each heart and slipped it through the next heart. I hid the cut behind the overlapped heart.
     I used a border punch on the edge of my matting panels and rounded the corners of my purple card base.
     There is still time if you want to come play with us. Details here: http://www.ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.com/2015/08/odbdslc249-color-challenge.html
