ODBD 9th Anniversary!

Hello Everyone!  Today ODBD is celebrating it's 9th Anniversary and what better way to celebrate than with a special Anniversary Die Set and Stamp Set!  I have wanted a large number die set for a while and what do you know, ODBD have brought out just the die set for me!!  Not only is Large Numbers BIG, it's pierced as well!!!  *HAPPY SIGH*  This will be used over and over for sure.  Let's not forget the new Celebration clear stamp set filled with sentiments for all sorts of occasions!

Of course it wouldn't be a true celebration without prizes and you have your chance to WIN!!

Prize Information: 
Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 Gift Code to the ODBD Website  just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until March 18, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 19th, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Now I had plans to make my first card a little more simple than it ended up, but I just couldn't seem to stop!!  :)  I've used a lot of dies as well as the new Celebration Stamp Set!  To create the card base, I've cut a piece of pink card with Side Step Card Die and then created the feature panel with Circle Scallop Rectangles Dies, Pierced Circle Dies and Large Number Dies.  The panels for the 'steps' have been made out of purple card and Plum Pizzazz Collection paper.  Next came the balloons using Balloons and Streamers Dies to cut pink, purple, white card and Whimsical Wildflowers Collection paper.  Finally I've stamped the sentiment from Celebration stamp set in Versafine Black and cut it with Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.

Stamps - Celebration (ODBD)
Ink - Versafine Black
Paper - ODBD Plum Pizzazz Collection, ODBD Whimsical Wildflowers Collection, Pink, Darker Pink, White, Purple 
Accessories - ODBD Side Step Card Die, Circle Scallop Die, Pierced Circles Dies, Large Number Dies, Balloons and Streamers Dies, Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies, X-press It Foam Tape



It seems I couldn't stop at just one and decided to make a masculine card while I was at it.  The fantastic thing about the Large Number Dies is that they are PERFECT for the dreaded MAN CARD.  You all know what I'm talking about!!  By the time you put the number in question on the front, there really isn't a lot more you need to do and the male recipient is sure to love it.  :)

For this card I've used a base of Marina Mist and layered with white and more Marina Mist cut with Circle Scallop Rectangles Dies.  Next I've stamped the Happy Birthday from Celebration in Versafine Black and then cut the panel out with Double Stitched Rectangles Dies and placed a hessian (burlap) ribbon around the bottom.  Cut circles with Circles Dies and Pierced Circles Dies and then die cut blue card with the Large Numbers Dies and pop it up on foam tape and you're done!

Stamps - Celebration (ODBD)
Ink - Versafine Black
Paper - White, Marina Mist, Light Blue
Accessories -  Circle Scallop Dies, Large Number Dies, Circles and Pierced Circles Dies, Double Stitched Rectangles Dies

Easter Daffodils


Hello Everyone!!  Today the Breadsticks are having a look back at the ODBD March Release!  I'm using this super sweet Daffodils and the fabby new Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies for my card and I just can't go past a blue/white yellow colour combo!  :)

I've used a base of Marina Mist and layered with Very Vanilla and white.  The next layer is white cut with Circle Scalloped Rectangles Dies with the middle cut out with Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.  In the centre I've added a piece of By The Shore Paper Collection, attached some blue ribbon around it and adhered to the card front.  I've stamped the Daffodils image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers (Y11, Y15, Y17, Y21, YR12, YR16, YG11, YG13, YG17, YG67).  This has been cut out with the matching Daffodil Die and then popped up on foam tape as shown.  The sentiment from Daffodils has been stamped in black, cut out with Pierced Circle Dies and also popped up.

I've used a base of Wisteria Wonder and layered with brown and white cut with Double Stitched Rectangles Die.  I've then added layers of Apple Bloom DP and a piece of purple ribbon.  I've stamped (and masked) the succulents and sentiment from Succulent Singles in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G40, G43, BG99, C5, V20, V22, V25, V04, V09).  I've cut this out with the stitched rectangle die and while still in the die, sponged a little Antique Linen ink around the edges and popped it up on foam tape.  I've added a swirl clip with the piece of ribbon and finished with a few dew drops. 

HEADS UP!!  The Succulent Singles has co-ordinating dies!!!  Pre-order now and they'll be shipping out on March 20th!!!

Peony Muse


Hello Everyone!!  It's Day Four of the Spring Fling Power Poppy Release!!  The Bloom Brigade is excited to bring you ANOTHER TWO new release set sneak peeks today!!!  Can you believe it??!!  I have chosen to use Peony Muse today.....seriously, how could I resist this gorgeous set?!!  :)

I've started with a base of brown card and added a strip of Maja Designs DP across it.  Next I've taken the largest peony from Peony Muse and stamped it three times onto X-press It Blending Card and then coloured with Copics and cut it out in three sections.  I've added X-press It Foam Tape to each layer to create a 3D effect.





I've die cut a stitched rectangle piece of card and then used many of the pieces from Peony Muse and the MISTI to stamp all the other parts of the card front onto the die cut piece.  I've coloured all the rest of the panel and then attached the 3D peony as shown, layered with Sweet Sugarplum card and adhered to the prepared piece of card.  To finish I've added a couple of brown epoxy dots.

To finish I've added a few yellow pearls to the bottom corner.
