A Stitch in Time - Our Daily Bread Designs September Release

Welcome to the New Release post showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs September Release!  You can see all of the September 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 cards with you using the Stitches, Sewing, ODBD Custom Doily Die and  ODBD Soulful Stitches Paper Collection from the September Release along with some additional ODBD Custom Dies.

My first card features Faux Iris Folding using the new ODBD Soulful Stitches Paper Collection.



Traditional Iris Folding has you folding your papers in thin strips, I simply die cut my shape using the ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts Die from Espresso card stock, embossing the panel, and working from the backside adhered strips of paper from the Soulful Stitches Paper Collection that were 1/2" wide to create my pattern. To finish my card, I die cut the two largest hearts from the Ornate Hearts Die from Vanilla card stock to create the trim panel, and adhered in place with glue dots.  To embellish my card, I added a die cut doily behind my ribbon embellishment using the ODBD Custom Doily Die.  The scissors are die cut from Espresso card stock using the ODBD Custom Apron and Tools Die, then applying Metallic Rub Ons for an aged look.  The sentiment is from the Stitches stamp set, stamped in Espresso on a Vanilla panel then die cut using the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die.  The cute little "snaps" in the corner are cut using the smallest die from the ODBD Custom Doily Die, with a small pearl added to the center.

I wanted a warm quilt like feel to my next card, and I was able to achieve that using the ODBD Custom Pennants Die (smallest pennant).



I die cut the pennant shapes from the Soulful Stitches Paper Collection, sponged the edges then adhered them to my card stock panel, and embossing just the pennant shapes.  The sentiment is from the Sewing stamp set, stamped in Espresso on Vanilla card stock, then die cut using the ODBD Custom Vintage Labels Die.  The stamped panel is adhered to an Espresso panel that was die cut using the ODBD Custom Antique Labels and Border Dies.  To embellish my card, I die cut the ODBD Custom Doily Die three times from Espresso card stock, stacking the dies for a scallop look, then added buttons, Zva Creative Crystal Gems and die cut scissors using the ODBD Custom Apron and Tools Die.

The die cuts from the ODBD Custom Doily Die look wonderful on Mixed Media projects using the Gelli Arts Plate, or with Sprays, Modeling Paste or Gesso.  Use the Spellbinders Tool-N-One to easily remove the paper die cuts from your die!

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Back to School Challenge!  The challenge this week is Buttons.

My card features products from Our Daily Bread Designs, and includes a sneak peek of a few of the NEW products being released on Monday, September 1st.


The quote is from the NEW Stitches stamp set (to be released on Monday), stamped in Espresso on Vanilla card stock and die cut using one of the dies from the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Die. The stamped panel is layered on an Espresso panel that was die cut using the ODBD Custom Vintage Labels Die. The beautiful papers are from the ODBD Soulful Stitches Collection, and the doily is from the ODBD Custom Doily Dies, these two products are also part of the September Release!  I've also added an Espresso Border die cut using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, and the scissors under my Button are die cut from Espresso card stock using the scissor die in the ODBD Custom Apron and Tools Die. After the scissors were die cut and embossed, I rubbed on some Metallic Rub Ons to give an aged metal look. To further embellish I added the Button, Vintage Brown Seam Binding and Zva Creative Crystal Pearls.

Friends Forever - Artistic Outpost DT August Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team August 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 Designers Choice.

I created a Mixed Media card using the Artistic Outpost Paperboy, Generation Redux and Chalk It Up stamp sets.



To create my background panel, I used the Gelli Plate, stencils from Just A Trace and The Crafters Workshop along with DecoArt Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Coastal Waters, Flamingo, Cotton Ball and Orange Sherbet to print on top of a piece of My Mind's Eye pattern paper.  Once the background was dry, I stamped images from the Generation Redux stamp set in Black Archival, and added circles to the background using Gesso.

The trio of girls is from the Paperboy stamp set, stamped in Black Archival on White card stock, and masked with Eclipse Tape, then stamped with one of the images from the Generation Redux set. To add color to the image, I used STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils. The words are from the Chalk It Up set, stamped in Black Archival on scraps of the printed background.  The fishtail was cut from scraps of the printed panel and Black card stock using Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Pennants Die.
