I have two projects to share with you today, using the new Life is a Gift and Miss You stamp sets along with some previously released ODBD stamps and dies and a"sneak peek" at the beautiful ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Pad Collection that will be releasing soon!

My first card uses the ODBD Life is a Gift and Mini Tag Sentiments stamp sets.


All stamps are stamped in Coffee Archival.  I colored the stamped image with STAEDTLER Karat Watercolor Markers, sponge Soft Sky clouds in the background and die cut the panel using the Circle Ornament Dies and layered the panel on a Kraft panel that was die cut using the Matting Circles Dies.  The word "celebrate" is layered on a Kraft panel that was die cut using the Mini Tags Dies. To embellish I added a Kraft panel that was die cut using the border from the Antique Labels and Border DiesZva Creative Crystal Gems, twine and Soft Sky Seam Binding.

My next card uses the Miss You, Life is a Gift and Mini Tag Sentiments stamp sets.


I used the Spotlighting technique to spotlight the wildflowers.  All stamps are stamped in Coffee Archival. After stamping the wildflowers on my white card stock panel, I die cut the circle using the Circle Ornament Dies, coloring only the die cut panel and layered the panel on a Kraft panel that was die cut using the Matting Circles Dies. The word "with sympathy" is layered on a Kraft panel that was die cut using the Mini Tags Dies.  I used Soft Sky ink to sponge clouds in the background.  To embellish I added a Kraft panel that was die cut using the border from the Beautiful Border Dies, Seam Binding and Twine.
