"Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. "But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!

Here are my creations using the Howdy stamp set!!  I just love the silhouette!! It is so much fun to create scenes with!!

I used the Sunburst die and sponged it with different hues of orange and yellow to create my background.  The rectangular scene is created with the Howdy stamp set as is the circular panel.  The clouds in the scene are created with Clouds from the Clouds and Raindrops dies.  The star is also sponged and uses the Double Stitched Stars and Sparkling Stars dies layered.

ODBD Stamps: Howdy

 My second creation uses the same Howdy stamp set but with a different look.  I used a piece of dp from Authentique that reminds me of Southwest with the Houndstooth pattern.

The sentiment panel is cut out with the Squares and Double Stitched Squares dies and is distressed with Tim Holtz ink.

Hello Friends!! Two posts within one week seems like a record for me as of late!! Life has been very busy and while I have been creating, I have had to wait to share this particular card until ODBD's recent release.

Today's card is for the Shining the Light challenge which is to use flowers and at least one stamp die, or paper from ODBD.  The flowers can be die cut, stamped, embellished or on paper.

ODBD Stamps Used: Good DayCrocheted Circle Poppy

I am just loving the Majestic Medallion Background!! It is so elegant and makes such a beautiful background!! The soft blue in the background makes it pop.  While you are unable to see it well in the photo.  The blue background paper is embossed for some added texture.

The poppy was colored with copic markers and die cut using the Crocheted Circle die.

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.

Isaiah 61:11

Despite what happens around the world, God's name will be praised in the end.  Despite the arguments of government, the circus the primaries have become or all the terror in the world, God is still present .  Even if the world should perish, He alone with be praised and glorified!!

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Robin and Diana or the ODBD blog.

Thanks so much for your comments and views!! They mean so much to me.

Have a blessed day!!

My first creation uses the new Tea Time Stamp set and Coordinating Tea Pot and Roses Die to create a Tea Pouch Gift Card Holder.  The cover of the project has the tea pot colored with copics, cut out with the coordinating die and mounted on the Flourishy Frame die.



The Flourishy Frame is mounted on a rectangular panel using the Pierced Rectangles dies, Rectangles Dies, and the Cozy Comfort Quilt Collection dp.  The embossed peach background is framed with a silver metallic paper cut from the Flourished Star Pattern

The design of this tea pouch gift card holder is my own.  It is not using a tutorial or someone elses idea.  Again the dp is from the Cozy Quilt Paper Collection.  The sentiment is from the Tea Time stamp set and is cut out with the Pierced Rectangles dies.  It is then mounted on a rectangle cut from the Lavish Layer dies.

Hello, Friends!! It has been a while since I posted a card so I thought today I would share one of my latest creations.  It was made to send to a friend to let them know I was thinking and praying for them using the March Anniversary Release.  I just love the decorative dies that are so perfect for layering!!

For my card, I used the Lavish Layers dies, Filigree Frame Dies, Double Stitched Rectangles and Rectangle Dies.  The sentiment is from the Faith Card Sentiments.


The combo of papers is from the Old Glory Paper Collection.  The middle border is created with the Leafy Edged Borders dies.

Is there someone who needs encouragement?  Sending a kind word to someone regardless of whether they are going through a difficult time or just to let them know you care for no occasion what so ever can build someone up or add a smile to their day.

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.  Ephesians 4:29

Thanks for your visits and kind words!! May you have a blessed day!!


Blessings,
