ODBD September Release


This month Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing 5 stamp sets and Two Exclusive ODBD Custom Dies. You can see all of the September Releases here. Continue reading below to find out how you can win a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.

To create my card, I used the Little Drummer Boy stamp set and ODBD Custom Fancy Ornaments Die from this release along with the Large Snowflake Background, ODBD Fancy Foliage Die and ODBD Recipe Card and Tags Die.
The image is stamped on Vanilla card stock in Coffee Archival and stamped a second time on MME pattern paper so the the image could be paper pieced.  To add color, I used STAEDTLER Mars Graphic Markers and sponged the edges with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The Snowflake Background was stamped in Coffee Archival on MME pattern paper.

The clouds were added to the background by sponging around the Scallop Ornament from the Fancy Ornaments Die.  No more sponging around a cut out scallop paper!


To embellish I cut the swirl from the ODBD Fancy Foliage Die from Burgundy card stock multiple times and pieced it to fit my project, and cut one of the Fancy Ornaments from Shrink Plastic and covered it in Gold UTEE using the Melting Pot to add as a charm to my project.  The sentiment is stamped in Coffee Archival on a Vanilla tag that was cut/embossed using the tag form the ODBD Recipe Card and Tags Die.

To create my 3D Christmas Ornament I used the new ODBD Fancy Ornaments Die


I diecut and embossed the Fancy Ornament 6 times cutting from White card stock, then scored down the centers, sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and embossed with Ranger Dry Glitter.  I adhered the pieces together with Gel Medium, tied on Gold Cording, Red Seam Binding and added some Pinecones to embellish.

Your drummer boy card is so precious. He is a perfect rendition of what I picture the drummer boy to be-eager to please, yet humble. The ornament is lovely.

Two great projects. The card is so lovely and the shrink art charm is beautiful.
The ornament is such a good idea. I have several friends who are new immigrants...think I will try a set of 6 of these as a Christmas gift. When you arrive with one suitcase each, Christmas ornaments are low priority the first couple of years!
