ODBD Designer's Favorites Flower Hunt Game


Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs Designers Favorites Flower Hunt Game!  Today, One Dozen of the Bread Sticks are sharing projects, and our top 4 favorite ODBD sets to celebrate the 4th anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs. 

Since flowers are one of the traditional gifts for a 4th Anniversary, we have decided to shower ODBD with a bouquet of flowers.  These flowers are randomly placed on SIX of the designers blog sidebars labeled  Designer's Flower Hunt Game with the name of a flower.  Look for the Flower Badges as you make your way through the participating designers blogs listed below, be sure to write down the designers name and flower found on their blog, you'll need it to enter the random drawing. 


For my project I created a Flip Book using one of my favorite ODBD Sets, Not Forgotten.  I like to patriotic cards and gifts, and just love the collage of soldier on this set, with the beautiful American Flag in the background.  On the front cover I stamped the Old Flag Background in Antique Linen Distress ink on the Bo Bunny Liberty pattern paper.  The soldier image is stamped in Ranger Black Archival, on a scrap of Liberty Pattern Paper, then colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and Gamsol.  The sentiment comes from the God Bless America set.

Here's a few additional photos, I embossed some of the panels with Embossing Folders and highlighted the raised areas with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, and added  a quote from God Bless America and a sentiment from Not Forgotten.  I didn't add any photos, as I wanted the person receiving the book to be able to add their own pictures.


A few of my other favorite ODBD sets are the Dahlia, Keep my Lamp Burning and The Mighty Sea.  The beautiful Dahlia is perfect for cards, scrapbook pages and altered items.  I have a thing for Lighthouses, and love the collage image from the Keep my Lamp Burning set, not to mention the set lends itself nicely to many stamp techniques.  The Mighty Sea is a favorite of mine, because I love sound of the waves crashing on the shore and sand between my toes.  What are some of your favorite ODBD Sets?

Be sure to stop by and visit the other participating designers blogs to see their projects and find out what sets are their favorites:
Grace * Patter * Angie * Chris * Sabrina * Lori * Fran * Lisa (you are here) * Connie * Sue * Debi * Gemiel

After you've finished hopping through the list of participating blogs, left comments and found the 6 flowers, send an email to Grace with the names of the Six Designers and the Flowers they had on their sidebars.   THREE random winners from all correct emails will win one FREE ODBD SET of your choice!  All emails must be sent by March 15th, 9:00 PM DST.  Winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog March 19th.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Don't forget to look for your flower!

Someone is going to receive an amazing mini-album. I think there's more of a need for something like this than we usually think of. Thanks for the inspiration.

Caryn S said...

What a pretty mini album. I love all of the fold out pages.

FrancineB said...

Gorgeous mini album. Awesome attention to detail.

Traci S. said...

Lisa, this is fabulous! Do you have plans for it, or is it for sale? If it's for sale, I'd like first dibs for it! My son is in the USAF.

I love the idea of the book. The embossing and then going over it with TH Distress inks looks beautiful, and I love the quote from Washington. I also love the cover...those images are wonderful. I like the effect you had with your coloring throughout the book.

My favorite sets? There are so many! Scriptures Collection 3, Don't Worry, all of the flowers...especially the one with the Song of Solomon.

Thanks for sharing this fabulous idea. Please let me know about your asking price if there is one.

He IS Able!
