The card above is made using the Rose Bouquet set, and the Iris set (for the sentiment). It also uses a new ODBD Custom Decorative Vase Die. Back quite a while ago I had designed a vase and used it when the Hydrangea set was released. Kelley asked me for a template of the vase and then Michelle added the fancy detail to the vase, and this die was the result. It fits perfectly with this month's Rose Bouquet, but it also fits several other of the ODBD Florals! I'm so pleased to finally see it as a die! I hope you all like it!
To create this card I started with a 5x7" side open base, added an embossed layer which I created by rubbing a Darice embossing folder with Broken China Distress Ink and then ran through my Grand Caliber. I then cut a Spellbinders Card Creator Heirloom Legacy die cut for my mat from white card and I stamped the Rose Bouquet image twice on white card with Memento ink. I colored with Copics and then cut out select roses to pop up for dimension. I cut one Rose Bouquet image with an oval die from the same Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy die set, sponged with Broken China, and added the popped up roses. The decorative vase was cut from white card, sponged with Broken China while still in the die, then lightly sponged around the edges to create dimension. I added some tiny pealrs and adhered the vase to the oval panel. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Iris set and cut with a Spellbinders Tag die. I added a seam binding bow and done.
For my next card I really had fun! I have been wanting to create one of these card designs, and I thought this month's GORGEOUS designer paper, the Blushing Rose Collection was perfect for it! This card is bigger than I normally make, but it measures 6x6". For the front I used the new Galilee Rose stamp designed by Michelle Laycock. I stamped with Old Olive and then colored with Distress inks and sponged daubers! I went back with my distress markers and just highlighted some parts of the image for contrast, but in reality, coloring this couldn't have been quicker than using the sponge daubers! I used various papers from the Blushing Rose Collection, added a mat of the ODBD Custom Quatrefoil Pattern Die, and some seam binding.
For the inside of the card, I used the basic instructions found HERE. I did reverse my opening of the card, wanting the card to open from right to left, where as hers opened the other way. I used more of the awesome Blusing Rose Collection design paper, stamped the Scripture from the Cherry Blossom Set , cut the panel with Spellbinders Labels 34, matted with Decorative Labels 34 and I decorated the message panel and "steps" with the ODBD Custom Beautiful Border die. A little sponging around the edges to distress and I was done.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects and are in some small way inspired to give these a try!
Here are the new sets and dies I used today:
