Our Daily Bread Designs challenge for this week is “Holiday with a Twist”. Create your own holiday project or card (Christmas or Thanksgiving) but it must use an ODBD stamp. See all the details Saturday, October 15, 2011 on ODBD's Design Blog and use the keyword ODBDSLC80 so we can enjoy your creations too!
This week I chose a new release, Christmas Door and it was so much fun! I stamped two images in VersaMark, and used Silver Embossing Power. Cutting the door panels and steps from one image, I mounted them on foam tape before adding to the first image. I stamped a third image on dark green Bazzill, and cut out only the garland, adding Ivory colored Flower Soft, Twinklets Chunky Diamond Dust and Clear beads. In fact, I used an entire jar of glass beads between the wreath in the door and the garland around it! I used Crystal Effects to adhere it all so there would be a sheen it all all once dry.
The sentiment is also from the Christmas Door set, and is framed using Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3. This tag is mounted over a textured background, using the Cuttlebug's Holly Ribbons Embossing Plate. There is a small silver brad for the door knob, but it kinda got lost with everything else going on. I added a small red gingham bow for a splash of color. The inside sentiment comes from this set as well and reads "The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy" Psalm 126:3. What more could you ask for!
Thanks for looking!
P.S. Tonda, the silver paper is the best! Thanks so much! Hugs....

Wow, Sis, you blew me away with this one!! It looks like I just walked up to a door that just went through an ice storm! The raised panels give it so much dimension AND - its so SPARKLY with all the "snow" on the garland!! A WHOLE JAR of beads on one card! whew, you will have to load this one in a box - and INSURE it to mail it - I have to keep looking, just to take in all the detail on this piece of ART! On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this one a 100! LYMI - you are a genius!

Mmm, thinking I won't see any doors like this at Christmas here in Atlanta....makes me want put the milk on for some hot chocolate. I think its brilliant that you stamped the garland on green to give it such a real effect through the icy snow. All that chunky diamond dust and glass beads - over the top beautiful is all I can say!!!! Hugs to you.

Oh my gosh...this is stunning. I think this is one of the most beautiful Christmas cards I have ever seen. How you do it card after card I don't know. I love how you did the wreath and the garland. I like everything you did. An awesome card. What glory you give to our Heavenly Father through your art.
