Our Daily Bread Designs December Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to the New Release post and Blog Hop showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs December Release! You can see all of the December Releases here. Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of three $25 Gift Codes to the ODBD Website! 

My card uses the new Pennant Flag Verses stamp set along with the coordinating Pennant Flags and Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies, along with the new Deco Border Die and a few previously released ODBD Dies and the Shabby Rose Paper Collection (see the full supply list below).



The new Pennant Flag Verses stamp set has a variety of sentiments, some contain a solid background like the one I used on my card, where the background is the color of the ink you used, and the sentiment is the color of the card stock/paper you are stamping on.  There are also a few verses where when the stamp is inked the verse is stamped in the color ink you used, while the background remains the color of the card stock/paper you stamped on.

The verse was stamped in Chocolate ink, then die cut using one of the Pennant Flags dies, layering the stamped panel on  piece of Chocolate paper that was die cut using the Double Stitched Pennant Flags die.  To further embellish my card, I added additional pennant die cuts and the beautiful flowers are created using the Bitty Blossoms die set.

Snowflake Crystals - Our Daily Bread Designs November Release and Blog Hop

Welcome to the New Release post and Blog Hop showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs November Release! You can see all of the November Releases here. Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of three $25 Gift Codes to the ODBD Website! 

Today I'm sharing two cards using the new Merry & Bright stamp set, Snow Crystals, Snowflake Sky and Christmas Lights die sets along with the Snowflake Season paper collection from the November Release along with some additional ODBD Stamps, Die Sets and Paper Collections (see supply list below).

My first card is a Fancy Fold using the Double Display Card Kit.  These card kits take the guess work out of cutting and scoring, as the bases are cut and scored, there are 6 in a package, 3 White and 3 Ivory.


The sentiment and lights are from the Merry & Bright stamp set.  The lights from this set are die cut using the Christmas Lights die set.  Because clear stamps tend to get wonky when adhering to the clear blocks, here's a tip to help you to ensure the die aligns with the stamp.  Place the stamp face down into the die, then adhere the clear block to the stamps.  Stamp and die cut according to the sandwich stamp for your particular die cutting machine.

To embellish my card, I used the new Snowflake Season Paper Collection, cutting the panels to fit, adding the die cut lights, stamped sentiment panel and beautiful Snowfake Crystals cut from White, Silver and Ruby card stock.

My next card features a window scene, using the tree from the Joys of the Season stamp set, and sentiment and lights from Merry & Bright stamp set, along with quite a few ODBD layering die sets (see supply list below).  The card is embellished with the Snow Crystals die set.  



I did alter two of the dies from the Mini Tags die set, as I wanted to omit the loop on the dies.  Here's the dies I used, and what the panels looked like after I altered my die cutting.

Always Right - Mixed Media Framed Art

Thanks for stopping by today!  This week, it's my day to share a tutorial on the Joggles Blog, I created a Mixed Media Art Piece using Joggles Stamps, Stencils and Sticky Snippets along with Dylusions Paints/Sprays and the GelPress Plate.  



If you look closely as this weeks tutorial, you'll notice my naked nails this week, lol! After the past few Mixed Media Tutorials, I opted for no nail polish this week, as the paints/stains and Gesso were taking a toll on my hands!

I also want to mention that because I'm working with Sprays this week, you'll not only want to be sure to fully cover your work station, but you might want to be sure to wear an apron or old clothes (ask me how I know, lol)!  And because I tend to use my fingers a lot rather than a brush, you might opt for gloves, as my hands get inky!

You can see my step by step tutorial on the Joggles Blog, I've also posted a photo video on YouTube.

Miracle of Christmas - Our Daily Bread Designs November Pre-Order Special


Thanks for stopping by!  Today is a special blog post, as myself and some of the other ODBD Design Team Members are sharing projects created with the products available in the November 2016 Pre-Order Bundles!

The Pre-Order Bundles can be ordered from Our Daily Bread Designs website through October 31, 2016 , and will begin shipping November 1st or sooner! Please note that the individual products from the November 2016 Release will not be available for purchase until November 1st! 

There are THREE ODBD Pre-Order Bundles for the November Release and each money saving pre-order bundle also includes a FREE Gift!  You can see all the Pre-Order Bundles HERE on the ODBD Blog.  

Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven, and my card features the new beautiful Snow Crystals and Snowflake Sky die sets, Christmas Lights stamp set and pretty Pink/White snowflake paper from the Snowflake Season Paper Collection.  All of these products can be purchased in the Special November 2016 Bread Basket Pre-Order.  My card also uses additional ODBD Custom Dies and the Joys of Season stamp set (see the full supply list below).



The beautiful snowflake dies and background die will make a wonderful addition to your Holiday or Winter themed cards!

I used markers to ink the tree from Joys of the Season, stamping it on White card stock.  I placed the Stitched Oval die over the rubber, so I knew how far down to color so that the bottom of the tree wouldn't end up in the embossed area of the die cut panel, then die cut and embossed using the Stitched Ovals die, layering onto an Oval and Ornate Oval panel.

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Joys of the Season, Merry & Bright
