Our Daily Bread Designs, Tulips, Tulip die, Lavish Layers, Circle Scalloped Rectangles, Pierced Rectangles, designed by Chris Olsen

Good Morning Friends!!  I hope this day finds you well and your are enjoying spring air and sun wherever you live as it is now officially spring...at least in the USA!!

The first thing I think of in spring is Sunshine, flowers, birds, green grass, Easter, and the signs of new life!!!

With this in mind, I enjoyed creating a card with ODBD's Tulips and Coordinating Tulip Die for this month's ODBD Anything Goes with ODBD Stamps challenge reminder post!!  I embossed my flower in white and then sponged the flower to give it color.

ODBD Stamps Used: Tulips

The flowers were sponged rather than colored and then die cut.
It was a lot of fun and used a bit less more ink then using copics.  

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Julie, Robin, and Diana.
If you would like to join us, you may add your creation until April 2 on the ODBD blog linky here.

Thanks for visiting and for your comments!!

Hello Friends!! I hope this post finds you all well!!  I can't believe it is March already.  Spring is just around the corner.  Of course, all the warm weather in February has been a real tease and many were wondering if it would go cold once again.

With spring right around the corner so are the spring flowers and green grass!!  I just love the fresh feel and look of spring!!  Today I am sharing a card I created for the Anything Goes with ODBD stamps using the new coloring pages.  These coloring pages are so fun and beautiful to color and include so many awesome scriptures.  For mine today, I chose my favorite scripture verse!
The God's Blessing Coloring page is colored with copics and then framed with the Circle Scalloped Rectangles and Pierced Rectangles Dies.

I just love all the flowers and butterflies!  I decided to color it with several bright and cheery colors.  The frame is created with 2 sizes of the Pierced Rectangles dies.  The inside frame is created with pieces of the Circle Scalloped Rectangles peeking out.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Diana, Robin, and Julie.  To link your creation using at least one ODBD, Artistic Outpost or Northcoast Creations stamps (or coloring pages), click here and add them here until April 2.

Thanks for stopping by and for your encouraging words.  They are so appreciated!!

Today I have two projects to share with you.  The first creation uses the new Tulips stamp set, coordinating Tulip die, and Circle Scalloped Rectangle die as well as the previously released Pierced Rectangles dies.  The Tulip image was colored with copics and then die cut with the coordinating tulip die. The Circle Scalloped rectangle peeks from behind a frame created with the pierced rectangles.  The Circle Scalloped rectangle is so versatile!



My second creation uses the new God's Blessings Coloring Pages!!!  Yes, ODBD has coloring pages with scripture!! It includes 40 coloring pages sized perfectly for an A2 card (it includes 4 pages each of 10 designs). The larger rectangle dies at ODBD make the perfect frames.  This particular coloring sheet was colored with copics and then framed with die cut Pierced Rectangles.


Here are the photos of the new stamps and dies used on the creations above.

Hello Friends!! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend!!  It was a warm and beautiful Saturday and then a bitter cold and windy Saturday.  This a.m. we woke up to a deep freeze at 26 degrees.  So much for our budding trees and flowers.  So sad as everything began to bloom so early. The tulips I share today may be the only tulips I will actually see.

This card uses a sneak peek of the Tulips stamp set and coordinating Tulip die to be released on Wednesday.  It also uses the Deco Border Die, Pierced Ovals, Pierced Rectangles, and Boho Bolds paper pack.


O Lord, how manifold are your works!  In wisdom have you made them all: the earth is full of your creatures.
Psalm 104:24

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a blessed day!  Thanks so much for your views and comments!

blessings,
