Re-use, recycle, or in this case.... Finally, use it!

Casing-Patter

Hello my blogging friends! 

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD39)!  The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps.  The challenge this rotation is to use something recycled on your cards or projects!   As far as recycling goes, it can be a part or piece of another card you made, but never quite liked, recycled papers, or whatever you can think to use or reuse again.  Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!   

My recycled item is my image.  Actually... I had made it for another project, then had taken it off to use something different.   It has been sitting on my desk for several months.  I decided this was the time!
 I made this card to honor Patter, who was chosen Featured Stamper on Splitcoast Stampers this week.  Patter is such an inspiration to so many not only for her talent but also she is one who lets her light shine for the Lord in so many ways.  She is my DT sister on the Our Daily Bread designs Scrapbook team and I'm thrilled to honor her in my small attempt at casing her lovely piece of artwork HERE.  I love this layout and it is so similar to what I call "my go to" sketch, I just knew it would be a perfect fit!    My image is Our Daily Bread designs Bird and Butterfly Labels and  Mini Tags 3 .   I airbrushed it with the Copics Airbrush system.  My card stock is Pear Pizazz and the designer paper is BasicGrey Kioshi. I used bits and pieces from my flower box and put together a little spray of flowers.  I used May Arts Silk ribbon and a Cheery Lane Fanciful Flourish behind it, and the CL Exotic Butterfly Mini die for the little butterfly.  I also used Spellbinders Labels 18 and Floral Doily Accents to make a frame for my main panel.

So how about you?  Do you have something you tore off another project, something you've been wanting to alter or use in a new way?  Let's see what you can recycle! 

 Here are the guidelines!

  • You must use ODBD Stamps! Other stamps allowed, but ODBD images need to be the focus!
  • Use keyword codes SNTODBD39 and ODBD when linking to SCS or public gallery.
  • Be sure to use the LINK to be eligible for the gift certificate drawing!
  • If you use either your blog link or online gallery, please give a link back to the challenge post.

The challenge runs from Thursday 9 am EST (June 30th) til Wednesday (July13th) at 6 pm EST. You have two weeks to enter. You can enter as many times as you like!

Hi Grace~

This is a wonderful tribute to Patter! I wish I had known she was the Featured Stamper,that's great!

I love the different papers, and the piece focal point that you stamped is colored so beautifully. I love the bouquet of flowers...so colorful and adds so much dimension. I really want to know what die-cut that is with the vine and leaves--gorgeous. That beautiful big pink bow---Patter's favorite color is lovely, as is the butterfly!

Great card, Grace!
