Seeds of Friendship - ODBD September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs September Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Lorelie's Blog, you are in the right place, if not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog, and hop from there.  There will be FIVE  $15 ODBD Gift Certificates given away as prizes this month - for full details click here.  The Hop will run 8am EDT Sept. 1st  til 8pm EDT Sept. 2nd. 

I used The Good Seed, Seed Packet and Seeds stamp sets all from the September Release along with the beautiful Dahlia and Sweet William Small Flowers.  Both projects use the Garden Can/Seed Packet Template, the larger one is cut to size from Grey card stock using the eCraft.  The smaller one I resized and cut from a piece of Ten Second Studios Metal, I resized it so I could emboss the watering can, and add a small bouquet of flowers, that I created with the Sweet William stamps.



I thought the seed packet kept at it's original size made a wonderful Gift Card Holder.  To decorate the seed packet, I stamped the Dahlia in Caramel, then stamped the verse from the Seed Packet on in Coffee on a Vanilla panel, and over stamped the pot in Caramel, layering on a Chocolate panel, then to the seed packet.



For the larger watering can, I stamped the Dahlia image in Malted Milk Paint, heat set and added the flowers in Grey.  Embellishing the can with some Seam Binding and a Vintage Button.  The Seed Packet inside the can was enlarged using SCAL3 so fit the ODBD Seed Packet image. The image is stamped in Grey on Vanilla then colored with Markers.  The pot image is from The Good Seed, and stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, coloring using the Marker Watercoloring and Out of the Box Techniques.

I hope you enjoyed my projects, as much as I enjoyed creating them!  Your next stop on the hop is Gemiel's Blog.  Remember,  to be entered into the drawing you need to leave comments on each designers blog, then return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment, letting them know you completed the hop and noting any blogs you were unable to comment on.
