Deck the Halls - ODBD October Release

Welcome to the New Release post showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs September Release!  You can see all of the October Releases here.  Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of three $15 Gift Certificates to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.

Today, I'm sharing two Christmas cards created with the new Noel Ornament stamp set, ODBD Custom Peaceful Poinsettias Dies and ODBD Custom Matting Circles Dies along with some additional ODBD Custom Dies, stamps and paper!

My first card is a TriFold Card, when folded it's A2 in size


I love to add layers to my projects and this card had plenty of them!  The base is Hunter, to embellish the panels I added pattern paper from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013 to Vanilla card stock.  I also added borders to the side panel using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies.  I embossed the Noel Ornament in Gold Detail on a scrap piece from this paper paper collection, die cutting the image with the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Die, layering a Vanilla die cut using the ODBD Custom Matting Circles Dies, then a Hunter panel that was die cut using the ODBD Custom Doily Dies.  To embellish the ornament I die cut/embossed and stenciled the ODBD Custom Peaceful Poinsettias Die from the paper collection, scruched the flower for a 3D look, then added die cut leaves using the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies, Seam Binding and Zva Creative Crystal Gems.  The ornament can easily be removed by the card recipient so they can hang it on their tree.

Here's another view of the card

To create the poinsettia, I Silver embossed the Noel Ornament on pattern paper, then die cut the ODBD Custom Peaceful Poinsettias Dies, die cutting two of the largest die for a fuller poinsettia.  The poinsettia is layered on two circle panels die cut using the ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies and ODBD Custom Matting Circles Dies.  The sentiment is stamped in Burgundy using the Christmas Door stamp set.  To embellish I added Silver die cuts using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies and Ornate Borders and Flower Dies, along with Silver Gems.

Autumn is a Second Spring when every Leaf is a Flower

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team April Blog Hop! Each month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost showcase projects created with various Artistic Outpost stamp sets/themes, this month the DT Blog Hop theme is Fall.  

I love the fall weather, a few of our trees are already starting to turn colors at the very top.  Inspired by the theme this month, I used the Artistic Outpost Old Grist Mill and Hayride stamp sets to create my card.


I stamped the image from Old Grist Mill in Ranger Coffee Archival Ink on a scrap of Bo Bunny pattern, coloring the image with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, then die cut the stamped panel using one of label dies from the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Die set, layering the panel on an Espresso panel that was die cut using the ODBD Custom Vintage Labels Dies. To embellish my card, I added a stamped tag using a sentiment from the Hayride stamp set, stamping on a scrap of pattern paper, die cutting the panel using the smallest tag from the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die set.  To further embellish I added Vintage Brown Seam Binding, a button tied with twine, leaves die cut from pattern paper using the ODBD Custom Fall Leaves and Acorn Dies and a border cut from Espresso card stock using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Hayride, Old Grist Mill
Card Stock - Ruby Red, Espresso

Joyeux Noel


My card today uses one of my favorite sets from Artistic Outpost, Snowy Woods!  I stamped the the image in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, and sponged the edges with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Red Ink and I have a "love/hate" relationship, so I stamped the sentiment in Red on vanilla card stock, clear embossed and die cut the panel using the smallest tag from the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die, then sponged the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I used the ODBD Custom Pennants Die, to die cut the "fishtail" from pattern paper, then trimmed the die cuts to fit onto the Black die cut panel.  To further embellish, I added a poinsettia flower, die cutting the leaves from the pattern paper using the smallest leaf die from the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods

Card Stock - Vanilla, Black
Ink - Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink, Ranger Black Archival, Red
Other - Authentique pattern paper, Twine, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Ink Blending Tool, Big Shot, Poinsettia Flower, Clear Embossing Powder, ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Dies/Custom Recipe Card and Tags Dies/ODBD Custom Pennants Die
