Noel!

Noel

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD49)! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge this rotation is the same as last  rotation.  We are in crunch time for mailings and gift giving.  So, we are creating MORE Christmas cards, gift packaging, gift ideas or anything festive you can think of to share with a Christmas theme!     Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win! We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!


I have used Our Daily Bread designs Holiday Ornaments 2 (designed by Dawn Lusk) for the ornament and also the "Noel" and the Spellbinder's Holiday Tags to cut it,  and Peace and Joy, along with the matching custom die for the snowflake. I stamped the ornament with Versafine and sponged with THoltz distress ink.  I stamped the snowflake, die cut it, then glittered it with a glue pen.  I popped the snowflake up and added a little snowflake bling for a pop.  I "hung" my ornament with some twine.  I used this week's sketch from SCS with a Papertrey base, SU! Kraft, and Memory Box scraps.  I used an MS Holly edge punch for my border.

I love these ornament stamps!  I have made literally a TON of tags up with them in a real quick order!  There are wonderful sentiments that go inside the oval or on the inside of a tag.  Here are some ornaments I made to use for packages:

Now... I hope you will play along with us... let's see all those Christmas cards and projects that you need to get finished up!!!  You might win some ODBD stamps for playing along!

Please stop by the rest of the designers who created samples for today!

Morning Grace! Miss you this week... just wanted to pop over and say hello. Your card is gorgeous! I had been eyeing those ornament sets and SPellbinders dies for a couple of months but didn't get them. Now as we're trying to scrounge for those freebie label stickers that come in the mail for identifying Christmas packages, I am wishing I had gotten them ;P But we can't fulfill our every heart's desire now can we? Not in this economy anyways. As I've shared with some others, we don't have our tree up yet, or decorations out of storage, but I've felt more peace and joy this year that I haven't had in years. The Lord is faithful to those who set their hearts on Him! Wishing you a very BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!

Hi Grace~

This card just had such a peaceful effect on me! I loved your ornament, that blue is beautiful! And, the snowflake with all of the bling is just fabulous! I love the holly border and that one sweet word...NOEL.

I tell you what, I think those tags would make fabulous gifts to people! I would like to win the die cut for those! They are beautiful!

I could sit and look at Dawn's art and craft work all day long! Who couldn't?

Dawn, I am blessed to know more about who you are...on the inside. I know how fabulous your coloring and projects are on the outside.

This card is precious, and is the perfect match for this beautiful Scripture. I'd love to know what colors you use to color red-hair! I don't have that down yet, and have almost all red heads in my family! LOL

Thank you for serving here at SSIC!
