Welcome to the October ODBD Release!

 Good morning!  
We thank you so much for joining us today!  Today is release day at ODBD!  
And wow, you will not be disappointed! 
Before we get started, let me take care of the 'business'!

 Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website.  You have until October 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments here on our Blog or the Participating Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on October 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

My first card features the fabulous Autumn Tree set!  I stamped the tree image and colored with copics.  I used the Pointillism technique on parts of the image.  I stamped the xoxoxo from Ornate Border Sentiments inside the heart!  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with an Antique Labels and Border and added it to a mat cut with a die from the Vintage Flourish Pattern die set.  I also embossed a Spellbinders square die to make a frame.  

Here is my second card featuring the Mother and Child Ornament stamp:

This is such a beautifully drawn image of our Lord and Savior with Mary!  I decided to keep this one simple so the focus is on them.  I colored the image with copics and cut it out with a circle from Circle Ornament Dies and then a larger circle is the mat cut from the new Matting Circles set!  The circles are layered over the largest Doily die.  A spellbinders die is embossed for the frame.  I added some stickles on His halo and a little on the bodice of Mary's dress.  A pretty bow completes the card!

Here are the ODBD products I used today:

Hello, my friend!

Hello!  Hope your weekend was wonderful!  
Mine was good!  The weather is awesome!  I am so glad that Fall is here!!!

I made a card this afternoon.  For no reason!  LOL!!!  I love the new dress form stamps from ODBD!  This one, called Elizabeth, is my favorite.  I also wanted to try something new.  First of all I rarely use these shades of blue except for masculine cards.  They are not the first colors I am usually drawn to when I create.  And, I always use black or brown when stamping an image to color.  Always.  Not this time!  I used Colorbox Graphic 45 Decades in Bon Voyage Blue.  And then I colored with copics to match all the designer papers.  I also sponged the edges of all the panels with the same ink.  Behind the image panel is a layer cut with the ODBD Vintage Labels dies.  The long strip on the side is cut partially with one of the Pennant dies to get the pennant shape.  The sentiment is from the Ornate Borders Sentiments set.

Well, thanks for stopping by!  
Enjoy your week and I will see you again soon!

It's Time to Look Back at the ODBD September Release!

Good morning! 
Today we are taking a look back at the ODBD September releases!  
Thanks for joining us today!

For my card today, I used Hand Knit, Stitches and Doily Blessings.  I also used the new ODBD Custom Doily Dies and  ODBD Custom Knitting Basket and Yarn Dies in addition to the new Soulful Stitches Paper Collection!  I distressed all of the edges and sponged ColorBox ink on each panel.  I stamped the doily with that same ink.  I colored the yarn with copics and cut it out with the die.  The sentiment is on an ODBD Custom Vintage Label die cut.  Then I just added a button, and some cute little scissors to complete the card!  

Here are the ODBD products I used for this card:

  Here is another card that is quick and easy!

For this card I used the Hand Knit set and the coordinating Knitting Basket and Yarn Dies you can see pictured above.  I kept this one clean and simple just embossing the frame with a Spellbinders Square and adding the twine that I 'dyed' with a copic marker to match the yarn in the basket! And that is it!

True Friendship

Good morning!  

Here is a quick and easy card I made with the beautiful Doily Blessings set new this month from ODBD!   I stamped it and then embossed the square with a Spellbinders square.  Then I used a stamp-a-ma-jig to help me get the placement of the sentiment.  This sentiment is from a former release called Sentiments Collection 3.  This panel is attached to the base with foam tape.  I added a half pearl to complete the card!  This is for the ODBDSLC213-Make it stitched themed or real or faux stitching.  And also for Word Art Wednesday 150-Anything goes with scripture or encouraging word. 

Hope you have a blessed day!  See you again soon!

A Gift for You

Hi there!  Hope you are having a great week!  I have another card for you with the new Elf stamp from NCC!  I just love him!  I followed the Sketch Challenge today at Splitcoast.  I colored him with copic markers and cut him out with a Spellbinders Square.  I adhered the designer paper to another piece of card stock and then embossed it with a Spellbinders Marvelous Square.  The snowflake is from the ODBD set called Sparkling Snowflakes which has a matching Snowflake die set.  I added a bow and some sequins to complete the card. 

I forgot to mention that the sentiment is from ODBD Ornate Frame Sentiments!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful evening!

Stitched in LOVE

Hi there!  
Here is one of those cards where the gorgeous papers do most of the work for you!  LOL!!!  
It is the new Soulful Stitches Paper Collection from ODBD! 
 I stamped the doily from Doily Blessings in a few places, sponged the edges of all the layers, added bunches of layers and a pretty bow.  The sentiment is from the new Stitches set and is cut out with the ODBD Antique Labels and Border die.  The scissors are from the ODBD Apron and Tools dies set and are sponged to get the matching color.  And that is it! 
Hope you  all have a wonderful week!!!  See you again soon!
