O Christmas Tree - ODBD October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs October Release Blog Hop!

For my 8" x 8" page, I used an old photo of my mom at Christmastime, along with these beautiful new Christmas sets from Our Daily Bread Designs: Christmas Tree Collage, Christmas Rose and Christmas Door

The Christmas Tree Collage is stamped in Coffee Archival on a piece of Cosmo Cricket pattern paper, I added a bit of Spica Pen to the ornaments and candles and sponged all edges of pattern paper with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The Christmas Rose is stamped on a scrap of pattern paper in Coffee Archival, and cut with Spellbinders Holiday Tags Die.  I stamped the flower again on Cherry Cobbler and paper pieced it over the pattern paper image, adding a bit of Spica Pen to the berries and leaves, and a brad center.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Door Set.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas Door, Christmas Tree Collage, Christmas Rose
Ink - Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Ranger Coffee Archival
Card Stock - Black, Cherry Cobbler

This is so pretty. I am interested in making cards like these myself. I found you on Our Daily Bread Blog. I am now following you. I have found some other blogs with these creative ideas and have asked if they would be willing to advise me what is involved. I haven't heard back from anyone yet. I also have a blog http://talesfrommyjournal.blogspot.com so you could check me out. My blog is about my hair jewelry. I hope you will get back to me and stop by my little window on the internet.
