Looking Back at the ODBD April Releases!


 Today we are taking a look back at the fabulous ODBD April Release!  
 I have two cards to share today!

This one features the new Chalkboard Paper Collection along with the Vintage Flourish Pattern Die and a precious die release, Antique Labels and Border.  No stamping!

And here is my second card!  Also no stamping!


This time the Vintage Flourish Pattern die is embossed!  I then added die-cuts from the Ornamental Crosses set and draped a piece of purple ribbon over the cross!  I added a little pearl to complete the card.

Here are all the supplies I used for both projects:

Nothing Changes


Hey y'all!!   Happy Wednesday!

I have two cards to share today!  WooHoo!!  

My first card is for three challenges:


I've used several ODBD products.  The new Chalkboard Lattice Background, Flourish Labels Borders, Ornamental Crosses dies and Vintage Flourish Pattern dies.  I used several previous releases as well.  An anniversary set called Sentiment Collection 3, Beautiful Borders dies and Fancy Foliage dies.  I used a combination of a stylus end for the dots and a toothbrush for smudges in the background!


My second card is for today's Sketch Challenge #484 on Splitcoast.  I used pieces of the new ODBD Chalkboard Paper Collection along with the new Ornamental Crosses dies. The sentiment is from the Anniversary Sentiment Collections 3 set.  The circle is cut with the ODBD Circle Ornaments die.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  See you again soon!

On The Cross


 Hi there!  Hope y'all are having a great week!

I played in the Sketch Challenge at Splitcoast!  
I will also be entering this to the Word Art Wednesday challenge for this week!

 
  The beautiful papers are from the new Christian Faith Collection released this month from ODBD!  I distressed the edges of each piece.  The sentiment from The Cross set is stamped directly onto the designer paper.  I used two of the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders die cuts and finished off the front of the card with a pretty seam binding bow!

Here is another look where you can see I decorated the inside adding a pretty cross I cut out with the new Ornamental Crosses dies.


Here are the ODBD products I used  today:





 Thank you so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your day!

Happy Sixth Anniversary ODBD!


Good morning! 
 It's time to celebrate the sixth anniversary of Our Daily bread designs!!! 
Congratulations Kelley!! I am so happy for you!  
It is an honor to design for this fantastic company and to call all of these ladies my 'sisters'!  

Here are the details of how you can be one of the lucky winners today!

 Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps; ONE lucky random commenter will be randomly chosen to win the 2014 Anniversary Bundle!  You have until March 18, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments! The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 19th, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

Each year Kelley gives her design team the opportunity to choose a scripture, quote or sentiment to be made into a stamp and included in a stamp set.  This year I chose a sentiment that has had special meaning in our family for several years now.  After one of my Grandfather's died, our son bought a sweet garden stepping stone with this sentiment carved into it, along with my Grandfather's name. He gave it to my Grandma and she treasured it in her beautiful flower garden until she passed away
 on her 92nd birthday in 2012.  

 Here is the set that includes my stamp choice:


I made a sympathy card and then two projects that memorialize my Dad who passed away last November.   I have experienced the pain that losing a loved one brings. But I had no idea how heartbroken I would be when my Daddy died.  Logically I know he is with the Lord and is no longer suffering.  But my heart just can't seem to heal.  I miss him so much!  So, it was somewhat therapeutic to create these two projects memorializing my Dad using a sentiment that had also memorialized my Grandfather.  


For the sympathy card, I embossed a frame with Spellbinders dies.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with an ODBD Custom Antique Labels and Borders die.  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card base.  I cut out the swirl with the ODBD Fancy Foliage dies and trimmed it into several pieces to tuck in behind the sentiment.  A sweet and simple sympathy card.  Below shows the inside where you can see I used an ODBD Beautiful Borders die and a sympathy sentiment from a previous release called All Occasion Sentiments.


And here is the ornament and the frame I created:




I wish I could have gotten better photos to share! I had a hard time not getting the glare!
Since I wanted these projects to be masculine, I tried to keep things simple.  

The ornament was purchased at Michael's and I cut a circle frame with a Spellbinders circle and the ODBD Custom Circle Ornament Dies.  I kind of stippled white paint onto the ornament and frames before I assembled everything.   I stamped the sentiment on the same type of photo paper that I used to print Daddy's picture.  Then I cut out the shape using the ODBD Custom Ornate Borders and Flower dies and hand wrote his name and his birth/death years.  I added some leaves from the new Zinnia and Leaves dies

 The picture frame was also from Michael's.  I painted it with brown paint and then  added lots of miscellaneous buttons.  The heart button has some twine threaded through it.  I stamped the sentiment on photo paper again and cut it out with the ODBD Custom Antique Labels and Borders dies.  I popped it up with foam tape and added seam binding, more twine and another button!  

We thank you all so much for helping to make ODBD a success!  
And we love having you hop with us today!

Please don't forget to leave a little love at each designer's post for your chance to win!!!
