Hello friends!! Tuesday is here and that means time for a brand new Shining the Light challenge! This week the challenge team is asking you to use silver or gold on your project. And we continue to welcome the uber talented Barbara as our guest designer!!!
ODBD has so many beautiful Christmas stamps and one of them is the set called His Gift. This set features a beautiful collage like image of a poinsettia. I love poinsettias and just had to add this set to my ODBD collection. This was the set I chose to use for my card today. I stamped the image using VersaMagic watermark ink, applied ultrafine silver embossing powder and then heat set the image. Once that was done I die cut the image using a Spellbinders plain rectangle die. I pulled aqua and kraft papers from the My Mind's Eye All is Bright 6x6 pad to coordinate with the silver embossed image. Some of the paper was die cut using a Spellbinders Scalloped rectangle die to use as a mat for the image. The sentiment is from the ODBD set Poinsettia Tag. The card was finished off with some lace and kraft colored ribbon.
As always, we will be giving out a prize, a $15.00 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday, November 18th at 8:00 pm EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced on Tuesday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Design images and sentiments on your projects, we would definitely love to see them if you have them!! As a way of recognizing those who do use ODBD stamps we will be choosing three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, you must use ODBD stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, November 18th at 8:00 pm EST. If you upload to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword: ODBDSLC130. When creating your post on your blog, please include a direct link to the challenge.
