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 Certificates to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.

Today, I'm sharing two cards using the Safe Travels stamp set, RectanglesDouble Stitched Rectangles and Double Stitched Circles Die sets from the December Release, along with a few previously released ODBD Custom Dies and the ODBD Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection and Christmas 2013 Paper Collection. (see supply list below).

The image is stamped in Black Archival, then colored with Watercolor Pencils and die cut.   I used the Double Stitched Rectangles die set to "emboss" the larger pattern paper panel.

Holiday Gift Box

Today I'm sharing a quick and easy Holiday Box Tutorial using using the eBrush, along with Sharpie Markers, SVG File from Dreaming Tree, the Dottie Stencil from Just a Trace and the Silhouette Cameo.

Supplies: (some supplies not shown above)
eBrush with Sharpie Adapters
Markers: Sharpie
Silhouette Sheet
Silhouette Die Cutting Machine
Other - Kraft Card Stock, Scor-Pal,  Dreaming Tree Take Out Box, Tulle, Non Stick Craft Sheet, Dottie Stencil from Just a Trace

Using the Silhouette Cameo, cut box from Kraft card stock. Place cut box onto Silhouette sheet so it doesn't move.  Place stencil over card stock, place the Dottie Stencil over the card stock.  Use the eBrush and Sharpie Marker (Bronze) to add color over the stencil.  

 Remove Stencil

Place stencil back over card stock, add additional colors using Sharpie Markers and the eBrush, if desired.  I added Red circles over the Bronze.

Remove Stencil

If you want to add a bit of sparkle to the Tulle to tie around your gift box, simple place the Tulle on the Non Stick Craft Sheet, and use the eBrush and Bronze Sharpie Marker.

I like to score my boxes by hand, so I used the Scor-Pal.

Assemble Box, add Tulle.

Dream It....Do It - Bloggers Challenge Circles

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  The Challenge this week is Circles, use Circle Dies, stencils, shaped cards, circles on your pattern paper, there are endless ways to incorporate circles on your projects!

Don't forget you can enter to win a STAEDTLER Prize Package (retail value $60.00)!  Click here for details, TODAY is the last day to enter!

I incorporated circles on my Mixed Media card by using the Just a Trace Dottie Stencil on the background panel.

The background panel was created with the Gelli Arts Plate, Just a Trace Stencils and Deco-Art Mixed Media Paints.  The woman is the Eliza stencil from Just a Trace.  I applied Black Gesso over the stencil onto Card stock and pattern paper, so that I could do a little paper piecing.  To add a little pattern to her dress I used the Palazzo Stamp from JAT.
