It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD48)! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps. The challenge this rotation is to create 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!

For today's card I am using ODBD Blessed Christmas and Ornaments stamp sets.  I used ODBD custom poinsettia die for the focal image.  I colored with copics added some sparkle and topped it off with a muted hue Prima flower to add more dimension and a vintage feel.   I added a sentiment from and used the Quickie glue pen to add some sparkle.  I finished with some pearls dyed to match using a copic marker.  I have been creating many Christmas cards lately that use non-traditional Christmas colors.  When I saw the CRE84FN colors, I  just knew they would make a wonderful Vintage inspired Christmas card.  I am using the colors from CRE84FN42 and Sketchbook 37.

Check out some more Christmas creations by ODBD designers. 



As always thanks so much for stopping by!

  9. Goodness, Betty, this is amazing - there is so much to look at - the poinsettia topped with the Prima flower on the musical paper looks wonderful and to mount that on the striped and polka dot DP - just makes it stand out so well! The soft sponging everywhere gives this an aged look - love it!
