Forever in my Heart - ODBD September New Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to the New Release post and Blog Hop showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs September Release!  You can see all of the September Releases here.   Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of three $25 Gift Certificates to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.

Today, I'm sharing two projects using the new Pet Sympathy set, Never Forgotten from the September Release along with some additional ODBD products (see product list below).


My first project is a 6" x 6" Scrapbook Page of our sweet Yellow Lab.  It's been just over a 1-1/2 since our sweet boy went over the Rainbow Bridge, not a day goes by that we don't think about him.  I still can't bear the thought of cleaning his nose prints off my car windows!



Pet Sympathy cards are just as hard for me to make as those for people.  Pets are family too, and it's so hard for us to lose them.  They provide so much joy and unconditional love!

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Never Forgotten, Pennant Swag Alphabet
Card Stock - Black, Vanilla
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Other - Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Dies: Cats and Dogs, Pennants, Mini Tags, Beautiful Borders, Ornate Hearts, Clouds and Raindrops, Boho Background, Ink Blending Tool, Twine, Glue Dots, SAMJ, Graphic 45 Pattern Paper

My next card uses the stamps from Never Forgotten along with the Cats and Dogs Dies, I just love these new pet dies!  The larger ones allow room for sentiments, the smaller ones make adorable charms!

Don't Worry - Mixed Media Card and Tutorial

Today I'm sharing a Mixed Media Card Tutorial using using the eBrush, along with products from Bella BLVD, Sharpie Markers and a Julie Nutting Doll Stamp.






Supplies: (some supplies not shown above)
eBrush with SP-01 Adapter 
Sharpie Markers - Colors of your choice, I used Pink, Yellow and Purple
Non Stick Craft Mat 
Silhouette Mat
Stamps - Prima Marketing (Julie Nutting Doll Stamp)
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - White, Black
Other - Ink Blending Tool, White Emobssing Powder, Heat Gun, Gesso, Decou-Page
Bella BLVD - Just Add Color product line




Using scissors, cut the flowers from the Just Add Color paper collection that you would like to add color to.  Place the flowers onto a Silhouette Mat so that they don't move when you add the color.  Then using the eBrush, SP-01 Adapter and Sharpie Markers add color to the flowers.  Repeat with additional colors until you have all your flowers colored.


Using your fingers, apply Gesso to flowers to tone down the colors.  Lay onto pattern paper to find placement.


Once you are happy with placement of your flowers, adhere with Decou-Page.


Trim excess flower petals from edges, layer onto card panel, use as desired.


To finish my card, I stamped the Julie Nutting Doll image onto White card stock, then paper pieced her dress with Bella BLVD Just Add Color Daily Details pattern paper.  As you can see, I used the eBrush to add color to the pattern paper. The shoes and bow were paper pieced from the flower scraps.  The sentiments are from the Bella BLVD Just Add Color Trinkets Black and White Stickers Collection.

Best of Friends - Artistic Outpost Monthly Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team August Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost stamp sets.  This month, it's "Designers Choice", as the Designers are sharing projects they created using the AO stamp sets of their choice.

I went with a Back to School theme using the Springtime, Chalkboard Wisdom and Whimsical Melange stamp sets.



I stamped the grouping of children on pattern paper, then die cut the panel using Our Daily Bread Designs Stitched Ovals Dies, layering on a Black panel that was die cut using the Ovals Dies.  The image is colored with STAEDTLER Watercolor Pencils, blended with Gamsol.

For the larger background panel, I randomly stamped the circle collage from Whimsical Melange in Black Archival.  The word friends is from the Chalkboard Wisdom stamp set, stamped in Black Archival on a scrap piece of the pattern paper, die cut with the Stitched Ovals Die and layered on a Black panel that was die cut using the Ovals Dies.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Chalkboard Wisdom, Springtime, Whimsical Melange
Card Stock - Black, Kraft
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Other - Black Seam Binding, Twine, Button, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Big Shot, ODBD Custom Ovals Dies, ODBD Custom Stitched Ovals Dies, Graphic 45 pattern paper, Ink Blending Tool
