ODBDSLC137 and SCS Inspiration Challenges

Today I created a card for Our Daily Bread Design Challenge to use something new and something old. For me the stamp set is old and the embossing folders are both new.

This was a clean and simple card to create. I started with a white card base, added a layer of SU Bashful Blue card stock, then a layer of white card stock that was embossed with a flower embossing folder. On top of this is a layer of white that's embossed with a dots folder and layered on the Bashful Blue card stock. A sheer blue ribbon was added to the left side before attaching everything to the white card. The Bible Verse is from ODBD Scripture Collection 9. It is stamped in Memento Black on white and layered on a beaded oval nestie. A Cheery Lynn Flourish is added behind the Bible verse.

My second card for today was created for Split Coast Stampers Inspiration Challenge. The Layla Grayce site had so much to choose from, but I kept coming back to the rose tea pot. Maybe because DRS Designs just released a couple of new rose stamps that I love!!  :-)

This too was a clean and simple card to create, though for me, any time I color an image, it's kind of difficult. I really struggle with coloring images with my Copics. I'm keeping with it and one of these days, maybe it won't be so intimidating!!

The Heart Stem Rose was stamped in Memento black on white card stock, colored with copics and die cut. It's layered on the same beaded oval die as my first card. This is a new die for me. The rose image was attached to a white panel that was embossed with the same flower folder as above. I added some glitter on a roll from Recollections and red rhinestones to finish the look.

Hope you like today's creations. Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time,
