ODBD August New Release

 
Welcome to the ODBD August New Release!  
Today I'm sharing a couple of cards made with the new Pickles set.  I wanted to show that they can be both elegant, and comical. 
First, I colored the circular image with Copics and framed it with Spellbinders' Asian Motifs dies.  The middle square panel was embossed using a Cuttlebug folder.


I included the larger pickle image on the inside, along with the verse John 15:1.



For my second card, I stamped the smaller pickle 3 times onto Eclipse tape and cut them out for a mask to create this background.  

Two pretty simple, straight forward cards, but you get the idea of this set right?  :)

Here's a look at the whole set: 


Now, I bet you'd like to know how you can get your hands on this new release:  Well, here are the Prize Details:

Kelley will be choosing one random winner from one of the designers blog comments to receive a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store  to be used towards the purchase of stamps.  You have until August 3, 2013 at 9:00pm EST to leave your comments on the designers blogs.  The Winner will be posted on the ODBD Blog on August 4th, so be sure to check back there to see if you have won.

Love the cards! My garden is producing lots of pickles and cucumbers, so this set is just perfect!

Just this... Alice said...

The elegance of the first card lends so much to the lowly pickle. I have to say I would be in a pickle if I did all the work you did to make that card. Pure genius on your part.

Julia Aston said...

Super pickle cards Tosh!! (did I really say that?!!LOL!) Love the die cut framings on the first - and I cannot believe how much masking you did to get the 2nd card done!! beautiful!

Iris said...

Love all those pickles and the Asian motif dies are lovely.

Marisa said...

Fabulous use of the dies on the first card and the second one is just too fun :) Soooo jealous you and Stacy and Christine got to hook up! Sounds like great fun was had by all -- especially the white water rafting!!

Julie- justwritedesigns said...

Elegant and comical does describe your wonderful cards. Love them!

You proved that a pickle can be elegant, that's for sure. I love it.
I love your comical pickle also, it's too cute.

Lucy said...

Your first card is so lovely with all of the white layers. The second one is very cute and funny!

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

Wow Tosh!! Your cards are gorgeous!! I just love the first with your beautiful coloring and the frame you created with dies. Sheer elegance!! The second is so creative and cute. What a lot of masking!!!
hugs,
Chris

Christine said...

I love the lacy look of your first card, and you selected such a wonderful sentiment for inside! It is truly gorgeous. Your second card has a CAS look, but it must have been quite an endeavor to stamp all those pickles...very impressive!

Linda Carson said...

Whoa! Never knew pickles could look so elegant! Love how you created the pickle background too!

Donna Oates said...

I'd have to be "in a pickle" if I had to chose the best of the best for all of the DT samples. All of you do great work! Love the pickle card! It made me smile!

Audrey Ann said...

WOW Tosh - how amazing are these!!! I'm gasping over the first card, with all it's exquisite and delicate beauty, then I'm giggling over the second. How creative and how cute is that??!!!? You're awesome - thank you for sharing your talent and inspiration :)!

Fabulous use of the new Pickles stamp set! Beautiful shaped card and coloring, wonderful use of the masking technique!

Caryn S said...

Love the cucumber vine on the easel. I am not sure how you did the second card (I read masking and Eclipse tape but you'll have to excuse my ignorance - I don't know what Eclipse tape is!). I'd love to see a tutorial on how you did it!

Sue D said...

Michele (mitchygitchygoomy) said...

Tosha, Tosha, Tosha, I'm so pickled (scrap that and change to tickled!!:) about your unconventional pickle usage. First, the uber elegant " Pickles for Peace" card, and then the fabulous bg masking work that provided us with your "Pickles for Tickles" work of art. The next time I'm out in the garden picking the lowly cucumber, I will pause a moment, see it in a new light and let my imagination wander. Then, i'll take it inside and whip up a batch of relish cause I'm a practical farm wife after all:)

juneroses said...

Good ideas.

Candy Meyers said...

Very unique cards. Love the fold. Great job.
