Sand, Surf and Sun! Our Daily Bread Designs August Release


Welcome to the New Release post showcasing projects from Our Daily Bread Designs August Release!  You can see all of the August Releases here.  Continue reading below to find out how you can win one of three $15 Gift Certificates to the ODBD Store good towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.

Today I'm sharing two Fancy Folds cards using a few of the new August stamp sets and custom dies, along with some older ODBD stamp sets and paper.

My first card is a Tent Fold Card, using Our Daily Bread Designs Flip Flop Fun, Life is Better, My Lifeguard and The Mighty Sea stamp sets along with the ODBD Christian Faith Paper Collection.


All images are stamped in Black Archival.  I adhered the pattern paper to Black card stock then to my card base, and die cut the opening using Spellbinders Circle Dies.  I used two Circles layered inside of each other to die cut the "rim" panel from Black card stock.  The image from The Mighty Sea is stamped on a White panel and colored using STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.  I sponged Blue clouds and added the stamped sentiment from Flip Flop Fun, then adhered the stamped panel to  Black card stock then to the inside of the base card.  To embellish the outside, after stamping and coloring the lifeguard stand from My Lifeguard on White card stock, I "fussy cut the image and adhered it to my panel with glue dots.  The flip flops are from the Life is Better stamp set, stamped on a scrap of pattern paper from the Blushing Rose Paper Collection and "fussy cut".  To further embellish, I added Zva Creative pearls to the flip flops, and MuddPuddles Sand.

Here's the side view

My Next Card is a Flip Swing Card using Our Daily Bread Designs Flip Flop Fun, Life is Better, Happy Retirement and Fishing Net Background stamp sets along with the ODBD Custom Flip Flops Die and Ornamental Crosses Die.


All images with the exception of the Fishing Net Background are stamped in Black Archival. The square panels on the front and inside of the card are stamped using the Flip Flop Fun and Life is Better stamp sets.  Then I stamped the Fishing Net Background in Weathered Wood Distress Ink over the stamped panels.  The flip flops from Flip Flop Fun are stamped on scraps of the coordinating pattern paper, then die cut using the ODBD Custom Flip Flops Die.  The embellish the Flip Flops, I die cut the flowers using the flower die from the ODBD Custom Ornamental Crosses Die, scrunched the flower and added Silver gems to the centers.


I stamped the hammock image from Happy Retirement on a Vanilla panel, coloring the image with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and adding the clouds with Blue ink.  The sentiment is from Flip Flop Fun.
