BIC29 Thank You and Joy to the World Sneak Peek


Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

WOW - isn't this a gorgeous Bedroom Beate has chosen for today's BIC29???

It is so bright and the colors are soooo pretty!!! Wouldn't mind waking up in this room every morning - LOL!!!

Love all the different textures too - the Seagrass Sleigh Bed is totally up my alley!!!

One day - when my girls are all grown up and won't destroy everything....I might buy one - LOL!!!

Here is my take on the room.........

I took my inspiration from the gorgeous colors of the room - I used Whisper White, Kraft, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point and Basic Black.

I embossed the Kraft CS with the *Argyle* CB folder and tore it on top and side. I stamped the image from the *Eastern Blooms* in Kiwi Kiss. I repeated stamping the same image with Pacific Point and Pink Pirouette on a separate CS. Next I cut some of the flowers out and layered them randomly on top of my first stamped image. I actually found this idea in the new Catalog on page 9. Isn't it pretty???

The sentiment is from the *All Holidays* Set and I stamped it in Basic Black plus I pierced right below it. The image was layered onto Basic Black CS and I distressed around the edges. This panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

At the end I added some *Black Staples* from Making Memories, some small Silver Brads (Michaels) and the Pacific Point Ribbon.


Here is a *Sneak Peek* from the brand new Set *Joy to the World* from *Our Daily Bread Designs* - this Set and two other Set's will be available November, 1st - isn't this a beautiful nativity image???

I used the same color theme from the BIC29 on this card - Whisper White, Kraft, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette, Pacific Point and Basic Black.

The layout is from Jen del Muro's SFYTT Sketch this past Saturday.

The panel on the left side was pierced with a brand new template that will be available at *OBDB*!!! The design I used is called *Marianne*. More details about this and other templates can be found on the ODBD site starting November!!!

Don't worry - I'll show off the other two Set's thru out this week!!!

Hope you will have a chance to play along???

Please don't forget to check out all the other ladies from Beate's DT -

LOVE both cards, Silke!! The torn argyle card stock on your first card is so cool as a backdrop for those precious and sweet little flowers. And the beautiful image and coloring on the nativity is wonderful. Love that sentiment, too.

These are beautiful! That flower card is stunning - amazing how you captured all the details of that room!! Love how you used the same colors for the ODBD card!!

Kristin said...

Ooh, that textured and torn paper in the background is striking! Makes me think of a hint of an exposed brick wall. Then you soften it all up with the gorgeous flowers and lots of white space. Gorgeous!

Bev said...
