Our Daily Bread Designs - July Release

This month Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing 5 Wedding/Anniversary Theme stamp sets and an Exclusive coordinating Die.  You can see all of the July Releases here.  Starting with this release, the ODBD Alumni Team will no longer be posting on Thursday, but will now be joining in on the New Release Posts to bring you even more inspiration for using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps! Continue reading below to find out how you can win a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of stamps.

For my first card, I combined a sentiment from the new Wedding Blessings set, along with Our Daily Bread Designs Exclusive Quatrefoil Pattern Die and Antique Labels & Border Dies.

The sentiment is stamped in Black Archival on White card stock, then cut with Spellbinders Petite Oval Dies, and layered on a Black panel that was die cut/embossed using the Antique Labels and Border Dies.  The Quatrefoil Pattern Die was die cut from White card stock and layered onto a Black panel.  To embellish, I added White Seam Binding that was tied in a double bow, along with Zva Creative Roses, and a die cut flourish using Cherry Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourish.

My next card uses Our Daily Bread Designs new Bird Cage and Banner Dies, along with the new To The Lovebirds and Banner Sentiments stamp sets.

The bird cage, birds and banner were stamped on White card stock, then die cut using the new Bird Cage and Banner Dies.  The Ribbon was stamped onto Kaiser Craft pattern paper, die cut and adhered to the bird cage with dimensionals. To add color to the Bird Cage, I used STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.  The sentiment is stamped in Black on the pattern paper, "For the Lovebirds" is from the Banner Sentiments set, stamped in Black onto the die cut banner, sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, then adhered to the card.  To embellish the bird cage, I added the Mini Fanciful Flourish die cut from Olive card stock, and a few of the die cut birds.
