Hugs to You and a Cardstock Trick!

PennantFlgVerDecoPenFlgs-sd

Taking a break from the hustle and bustle of “Christmas card making” to share this card and send a hug!

PennantFlgVerDecoPenFlgs-WM

The new ODBD Pennant Flags and Double Stitched Pennant Flags are so versatile and can be used in so many combinations!

On this card I used, Pennant Flag Verses, Deco Border, Small Bow, Doily, Double Stitched Rectangles and Shabby Rose Collection.

I didn’t have cardstock to match the dp, so I used a marker to go around the edges of the pennants. A quick trick!

Did you know Josh, the one who keeps things running smoothly at the ODBD shop….taking orders, packing, shipping, stocking, printing… the list goes on and on… had a birthday last week?!

I made this quick birthday day card for him, again, using the versatile pennants!

DBL-ST-PennFreeIncentWM

Double Stitched Pennant Flags and Pennant Flags from Birthday Brights and stamped with one of the greetings from the free Incentive Gift Set! (the cute set comes with the cupcake die too!)
For some background texture, I embossed the pegboard from Pegboard and Hooks, stickles added to the candle and icing for fun.

Happy Thanksgiving Week…and A Die Cut Gate Fold

To all my American friends…
Enjoy your time preparing for Thursday and time spent with family and friends. It’s a busy week!

This post is a card made from the featured tutorial on Splitcoast last week, Die Cut Gate Fold, found here. And another added to my Christmas pile! I’m shooting for next week to have all my cards done!!

Gatefold-WM

I started by cutting a piece from the Snowflake Season Collection and a shimmery piece of cardstock with Snowflake Sky, then following the tutorial, I used the skinny die from Leafy Edged Borders to cut the “gate”.

Having the Snowflake Sky snowflakes inside when cutting the gate also embossed the inside!

The card was finished off with sentiments from Merry and Bright, and Double Stitched Squares. I used my stamp positioner and masking to stamp the different color inks.

Give this fun fold a try!

Thanksgiving Blessings!

For this card I used, ODBD’s Merry and Bright, Joys of the Season, Snowflake Season Collection, Christmas Lights, and Pierced Rectangles. I coated the bulbs with red liquid pearls. I used my stamp positioner to stamp the greeting in jet black and fired brick.

MerryBrightLightsSFSky-WM

My first card uses Merry & Bright, Snowflake Sky die (part as a stencil, Christmas Lights dies from this release, plus Pierced Rectangles and Rectangles.

I cut a piece of cardstock with Snowflake Sky, then air brushed over it, using it as a stencil for my background. The red border is the largest die in that set, I love it!

The Christmas lights from Merry & Bright are colored with a marker and clear embossed for some added “sparkle”, cut with Christmas Lights and popped up.

I stamped the greeting using a stamp positioner.

My next card uses Jingle Bell Time, Snowflake Season Collection, Snowflake Sky from this release and also, Christmas Candles (holly), Fancy Foliage (pine cone), Lovely Leaves and Lavish Layers.

The beautiful Snowflake Sky makes a wonderful background on its own or layered as I did here! Just a beautiful die!
