Fear Not



Our Daily Bread Designs is sponsoring this week's sketch challenge at Card Positioning Systems. The CPS designers have done fantastic things with this month's ODBD sets, both the pottery set I showed earlier in the month, and the new Scripture Collections #1 and #2 that debuted during Tuesday's blog hop.

Here's my take on the sketch (CPS #107). I used some designer paper I got from the ODBD Store - Sweetbay by Memory Box. I love, love, love the fresh, spring-like colors and patterns. You can find this and quite a few other Memory Box paper collections HERE. The verse, Isaiah 41:10 is part of the Scripture Collection #1 set. I added some other fun, new-to-me things, too -- brown corduroy brads from Stampin' Up (YUM!), blue/green trim by Making Memories, and a punched border using the Fiskars A-Fleur border punch.

I've had a lot of questions about the BossKut dies that I use (the brown flourish on this card is one of them) and whether they work with the Cuttlebug, and I keep forgetting to answer - sorry!! Yes, the BossKut dies work with the Cuttlebug. I'm usually just fine running the same sandwich that I use for my Spellbinders dies (A plate, C plate, die with cutting side up, card stock, B plate). Sometimes, for more intricate shapes, I'll add a piece of heavy cardstock between the die and the B plate as a shim.

Thanks for visiting!
