Seed Packet Shaker Card ~ Stamping in Time

Faith-as-mustard-seed-shake

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a great week!

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge(SNTODBD44)! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge this rotation is all about distressing!  You can ink distress, paper distress, or a combination of the two!  Have fun!  Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!

So I made a shaker card I made using Our Daily Bread designs Seed Packet and yellow mustard seeds.  I stamped with Memento Ink, colored with Copics, sponged each layer with TH Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy.  The base is Bazzill and the mat is an old Making Memories Harvest Pad.  The DP is 7 Gypsies Conservatory.  I used tan seam binding and spritzed it with Mustard Seed Glimmer Mist, wrinkled it up and dried it, then tied the bow.  I added some little Primas and MS Bough punch outs.  I sewed around the card and added the faith brad to the bow.  I am so loving the versatility of this seed packet!

Be sure to stop and see the other samples some of the DT made!

I am also entering this to the following challenges:
Anything Goes Challenge -  Anything Goes, Cheerful Stamp Pad - 2 "Be Transparent" (acetate on shaker), Incy Wincy Designs - Distressing (distress inks around all layers), Kaboodle Doodles - Lots of Layers (6 with the mats), Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, Paper Creations Ink -  Buttons or Bows, Stamp with Fun - Anything Goes, Addicted to Stamps  Stitching, Card Cupids - Anything Goes, Gingerloft -Vintage or Distressed, The Squirrel & the Fox - Anything Goes, Digistamps 4 Joy - #28 anything goes, Paper Shelter Challenge -  anything goes

Be sure to stop by the Our Daily Bread designs Blog and check out all the details of the challenge!  You have 2 weeks to play to win an ODBD gift certificate! I can't wait to see your distressed creations!

Thanks so much for taking a peek!  Have a wonderful remainder of the week!

Grace, this is stunning and so beautifully done! Love the warm colors and scrumptious details! I am most impressed with the actual mustard seeds. This reminds me of a bracelet I had when I was young of a single mustard seed in a clear heart charm. This scripture came with it. Beautiful!
