Usually I like to post first thing in the a.m. but not today. My daughter and I are sick with the stomach flu so this will be brief. I wanted to share the Lift up our Hands set from Our Daily Bread Designs . Be sure to visit the blogs of some of the design team members to see their cards using this set. Everyone has a unique take on how to use the set. The cards are amazing!
The image on this card was inked and embossed in not quite navy and clear embossing powder (several times). The image actually is cracked using the cracked glass technique although it is cracked better under the dimensionalized praying hands. Around the praying hand image I put several little pearls to highlight it. The card is sewn in gold thread. The ribbon was white wheer with gold trim and I dyed it in Not Quite Navy.
I love this set! It is so versatile! It could not have come to me at a better time since I have several sympathy cards to make. Our family has had 4 funerals of a family member and parents or spouses of close friends in the last 3 1/2 weeks.
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Lift up our Hands
Paper: K&Co. that I have hoarded, Navy Bazill, and Gold Glitter Paper
Accessories: pearls, gold metallic thread, Martha Stewart Punch, Sheer Ribbon, Not Quite Navy Re-inker, gold plate
I want to wish everyone a Happy Healthy New Year!
Today I would like to share my first card made as a designer of Our Daily Bread designs (ODBD). This card is a preview of the set "He is Risen" that will be available on January 1st. I love this set. It is so versatile and comes with many different verses. This card measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2. I chose to stamp the cross in a verigation of gray, pink. and purple to make it look like nails. The verse "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have Eternal Life! John 3:16." was embossed in gold. "Alleluia" is also embossed in gold. I love this verse, it is so appropriate as we marvel at Christmas time about the abundant blessing God has bestowed upon us. The background of the verse is embossed with a Swiss Dot cuttlebug folder. Some of the dp is dry embossed with the floral folder. All of the edges are sewn with metallic gold thread. A gold cross charm was added to the ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. I will be completing another feature presentation today that I hope to share with you tomorrow. Please be sure to check out the blogs of Sita and Jane, two other ODBd design team members, who have also completed previews of Our Daily Bread design stamps to be released on January 1. Have a great day!
Stamps: Whiff of Joy - Charlotte with cat Inkadinkado- tree
Paper- Creative Imag. Poinsettia dp, glitter paper from K&Co.
Accessories- Liquid applique, glitter, embossing powder, gold baubles, gold thread, nestabilities
I used the snow swirled bird from Inkadinkado. First I stamped the image in silver and embossed it. Then I reinked the image with my Baja Breese Craft Ink and embossed it in clear. Before I cut out the image, I dry embossed the background silver image using my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder. The background white you see behind the third layer, the thin baja breeze strip behind the image, and the three round circles are embossed using the snowflake folder. It is hard to see the dry embossing clearly in this picture. After sewing the card in blue and putting it together, I added the snowflakes and a blue bow.
Paper: Stampin Up Ski Slope, Stampin up Baja Breeze, Bazill, Stampin up white, and Silver Glitter Paper

Ink: Silver (Encore), Baja Breeze
Accessories: Nestabilities, pearls, sheer glitter blue ribbon, Swiss Dot and Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder, Me & My Big Ideas snowflake die-cut embellishments, blue thread, silver and clear embossing powder
I really enjoyed this layout challenge. It was a lot of fun. The card looks a little like a Christmas card but my mother in laws birthday is right before Christmas. Hope she likes it.
Here it is the day before Christmas and I am still creating Christmas cards. This is actually a shaker card that I made for my hubby, Scott. I hope he doesn't mind me sharing this card before he even sees it. I was planning on making a very simple card since I have soooo much to do today but decided that a cardinal makes the perfect shaker card. (Scott loves watching the birds in the winter and so do I. This stamp was just begging to be inked up.) Anyone who has done a shaker card knows that shakers are not easy cards to make but I really love how it turned out and hope Scott does too.
As you can see from the photo, there are tons of gold baubles on this card (small, medium and large). I think the gold balls make it look more festive. It is hard to see from the picture, but the red is all glitter paper. I sewed the car with metallic gold. This card has a lot of shimmer!!
paper: Scarlet Letter from Basic Grey, Black Bazill (glossy), red glitter paper from K&Co.
Ink: Copic markers and black ink
Acessories: small, medium and large baubles, red and gold ric rac type trim, metallic gold thread, acetate, mounting tape, 8mm clear beads, Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Folder, and nestabilities
If you are interested in making a shaker card and have not made one, Splitcoaststampers does have a step by step tutorial.
I hope you enjoyed my cardinal. I hope to share another shaker card, I made, with you (that is not Christmas) later today.

paper:designer paper (Floral Stamp Embossed Paper) and gold glitter paper- K&Co., purple bazzill
Acessories: pearls, glittered ribbon from Holiday Ribbon Bowtique, American crafts purple glitter ribbon, gold metallic thread, nestabilities, cuttlebug embossing template, and glitter. I enjoyed the challenge. I would like to try it again with another image.
Have a great day! I can't believe in two days it is Christmas! Well I better go make my birthday card for my mother in law now.
To keep with the snow and Christmas theme, I decided to share a card I made with a stamp from Spiral Whisper . The stamp is called Milly on Yule Log. I had so much fun using liquid applique to creat the snow on this card. I used the gamsol method of coloring with my Prisma Color pencils. It is had to see from the picture, but the image is embossed and layered with dimensionals. The card is sewn with dark green thread.
stamps: Milly on Yule Log
paper: Bazill, Silver Glitter Paper from K&Co., and Bo Bunny Holiday Cheer Frost
accessories: Nestabilities, Stampin Up Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, amd sheer white ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed my first post. I hope to post one more card today. This, too, will be staying with the Christmas theme.
