Welcome to the Mid- October ODBD Release!

 For my card above, I used the new Peaceful Deer set.  I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored with Copics.  After the image was colored I masked it and used my air brush to do the background.  I then cut that out with the ODBD Custom Layered Lacey Squares Die.  I embellished with some Stickles for snow and my white copic ink to paint white on the branches and the spots on the deer.

To create my card, I started with a blue base and die cut white card stock with the ODBD Custom Leafy Edged Borders, and then I embossed that panel with a Darice Snowflake embossing folder. I spritzed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist for a pretty shimmer.   I cut a strip of the same card stock as the card base with the Leafy Edged Borders to go over top of the white.  I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner, then placed my white panel over that.  I used foam tape to adhere and pop up the image panel.  Then I cut two sizes of the new Merry Mosaics die cut flowers from white, and two blue flowers cut with a previous release, Peaceful Poinsettias.  I layered these together along with some leaves from the Merry Mosaics set, and some greenery from the Fancy Foliage Dies set. I used the flower center from the Merry Mosaics die set, cut it from blue card stock then added perfect pearls for texture.  

For the card below, I used the new stamp set, Perfect Light.  I stamped it on white card stock and heat embossed in gold.  Then I cut it out with a die from a past release, the Recipe Card and Tags Die set.  I cut and embossed the Sunburst Background Die, then rubbed Brilliance Gold Ink over the raised areas, and heat embossed that with  kaleidoscope embossing powder.  I love this powder as it picks up the shades around it and radiates shimmer and gorgeousness.  I used the new Christmas Candle Die set to cut both my candles and my holly border.  I cut the candles three times: once from gold mirrored paper, once from green mirrored paper, and once from the ODBD Christmas Card Collection 2015.  I pulled out the parts I wanted to paper piece in from the gold die cut, added the green leaves and the swirled candles, and adhered them to the card with foam tape.  To create the border I just cut the leaf part of the die out twice, and trimmed off the unwanted parts.  I lined them up and created the border.  I cut 3 little poinsettias from the set from gold mirrored paper and adhered them.  I used a white base and green mirrored mat for this card and I really do love how this came out.  I hope you like it too!  

I can't read this sentiment without breaking in to song with Point of Grace's rendition.  I felt the sunburst background beautifully depicted the radiating light of our Savior.

You always create such beautiful cards. I especially like your second one with the glimmers of cold and candles. It speaks light which is what Christmas is all about.

I love the deer card, but the green and gold one is just amazing, and so beautiful. Great use of the dies, and the shining sun-ray background perfectly picks up on the sentiment.

Three beautiful cards. I especially like the first one.

Grace, gorgeous samples!! Love the deer scene in the light blue, great design too! Cute with the bits of snow on the deer. In winter I often find the llamas with snow on their heads and backs...so cute!
Your second card is shimmer-licious! Beautiful! And your peek is gorgeous!

Beautiful airbrushing on the first card. And using the Copic white gave me some inspiration. Truly lovely in blue. On the 2nd card, I love the sentiment. The green and gold mirror paper is so beautiful. Very nice cards. I'd certainly like to be the receiver.

Jaw dropping cards! They have that WOW factor!

Jerri Jimenez said...

They are all so beautiful Grace, I cannot pick a favorite. The deer card reminds me of the deer in my backyard, the blues are so soft and pretty; the candle card is positively glowing; and the poinsettia card is so vintage . . . reminds me of an old fashioned Christmas. Gorgeous cards sweet friend.

Grace, your cards are just something to behold - I am just blown away with how gorgeous they both are! I LOVE the expression you've captured on the beautiful deer, and so detailed with the coloring - I'm remembering our days being in a small cabin in Tennessee and looking out the window to see just this magnificent animal looking curiously back at us! Just a vision these are - wonderful work, as always! TFS and Blessings ♥
