WooHoo, a couple of my new embossing folders came in yesterday…they were ordered more than a month ago…grrrrr.   It was great to get to play with them, and again I resorted to the foil paper – this is a precious shade of light blue.  This card is a big one…I think I got carried away because with the snow dots you can do endless embossing, you just keep adding on to the start and it all meshes due to how they laid out the folder.


Stamps:  Stampendous – Angel, Printworks – Sentiment
Paper:  Fabriano Acquarello Watercolor, Foil Paper – Walmart
Ink – Black Brilliance
Accessories: Cuttlebug Snow Dots Embossing Folder, Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder, Nestabilities, Quickutz Swirl,  Martha Stewart Scallop Border Punch, Fiskars Border Punch, Snowflake Punch

I’ll hopefully have time today to play some more!!  Life is good!

    Another beautiful and inspiring card! I check in to your blog every few days and I am always in awe of how much detail you put in your cards. You truly have a gift! Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • BarbAugust 26, 2008 - 6:48 am

    Wow!! Picture me sitting here in my jammies this morning and checking in to see if you had added anything new yet- now do you see me picking my chin up off the floor :D ? This is hands down the most gorgeous Christmas card I have ever seen! That little angel stamp is so adorable and I love the snowflake punched out of the side. Love the colors too…. well, love everything about it! AWESOME and AMAZING are two words that just don’t do this card justice :D. Have a blessed day Becca!

  • MrsHAugust 26, 2008 - 1:25 pm

    Another outstanding card, Becca – beautiful – and I just love that you’re going BIG. I think you Americans always make such small cards. In UK my standard card would be A5 size- in your terms that’s 8.3 inches by 11.7 inches folded in half. I am ordering this folder myself and now I have some inspiration to go by, thank you so much.ReplyCancel

  • maggieAugust 26, 2008 - 2:25 pm

    Congrats on the DT, off course they asked you stay on with those amazing cards.
    How do you have the embossing line from the folder on the cb?
    Mine always come out with the line in it’s entirety..
    Where do you purchase your folders?

I will be visiting again often, thanks soooo much for the inspiration!ReplyCancel

  • NancyJanuary 11, 2009 - 9:19 pm

    Hi Becca,
    I love the Stampendous angel that you used on the Good Wishes and the new Cuttlebug Snow dots embossing folder. You posted this card on Tuesday, August 26, 2008. I have looked everywhere for this little angel. I even looked on the Stampendous site and also in a catalog that a scrapbooking store had of the Stampendous stamps to see if they could order it for me. No luck, so I am wondering if you can let me know if it was in a set or where I can find it. Thank you so much.ReplyCancel

  • VickiOctober 29, 2009 - 10:25 am

    Becca, I love the card that you used with the blue foil paper. I like working with the foil paper and the cuttlebug embossing folders. I went last night to WalMart to look for the light blue foil paper that you used on this card but was unable to find it. Do you know of any place else that might carry the light blue foil paper? I had the green, bright blue and red from years back and just recently ordered some more JoAnn’s Fabric. But I am looking for purple and the light blue. Any help that you give would be great.



Oops…stop…hold on!  There has been a change of plans. 




Do you remember not so long ago I told you I was going to be the guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs from August 15 to September 15?   Well, that plan was scrapped.  Sigh….my first Guest Designer gig and I was primed to go the distance…sigh.  Oh, the cards that I was gonna make…all the stamping I was gonna do…packing a lifetime into a month, and then a change of plans. 




 Oh well, I guess I’ll have to make those cards as a . . .


. . .Member of the Our Daily Bread Design Team!!!!  He…he…had ya goin’!  Yep, I’ll be staying on as a part of the Design Team and I am so blessed by this opportunity – read all about it HERE!!  I truly love ODBD stamps!  It’s an amazing feeling to be able to spend  time doing what I love and at the same time creating a piece that gives glory to God, it is a labor of love.

Stay tuned….there’s lots of exciting stuff to come to Our Daily Bread Designs – new releases, extraordinary Guest Designers and more!  I’m just so thankful that I can be a part of it all.  If you haven’t been there yet, click on over and check it out!!

I had another project I had not shared featuring paper from the Hope Packs available at Our Daily Bread Designs.  This project is a picture carousel with a removable lid for storing items.  I used two of the verses from the Hope set that made their debut with Our Daily Bread Designs  this month.  The carousel can be used as it is now, or the inserts can be removed as pictures are added.  This was an alterable that I had on hand that I wanted to use, the right occasion or project had not come along.  When I saw the paper in the Hope Pack, I knew I had enough to get the carousel covered and it would be perfect along with the other pink accessories I showed earlier.

Getting the carousel covered was an easy adventure.  First I painted on two coats of gesso then I cut all the papers to size (lucky me, the inside of the frames could be cut with a square nestie).  The papers were all glued down and topcoated with Art Quest Perfect Paper Adhesive (Matte) which I purchased at Michaels, it is very similar to Modge Podge.   Using nesties I cut the two verses and finished up with flowers, brads and ribbon. 

This is the first month that I’ve really ever delved into alterables.  It’s always at the bottom of the list because there’s always seems to be something else I need that is not in my stash.   No so with these recent projects…I’ll be more apt to do similar things in the future because it was sure easier than I thought.

Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper:  Available in Our Daily Bread Design – Hope Pack
Ink:  Colorbox Chalk – Rouge
Accessories:  Gesso, Ribbon, Fflowers, Brads, Nesties, Perfect Paper Adhesive (Matte) or Modge Podge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
