November Release Day and Blog Hop and a Challenge

Good Morning and Happy November to everyone! Today is the day Our Daily Bread designs releases it's newest collection of sets!!!! The Poinsettia Collection is here!!! And we are celebrating with a Blog Hop and a challenge! If you arrived here from Dawn's blog you are going in the right direction! If not, please visit the ODBD blog and begin from there. This is so important because along the hop each designer has a secret word or words for you to collect. Write down each designer's name and their word/words, remember to leave a comment and then go back to the ODBD blog to comment that you have this info ready. Don't give out the info there though! A special email will be given to you so that you can email the words and designer's names in the correct order. This is all you need to do to have a chance to win the entire Poinsettia Collection! That is three sets!!!! WooHoo!


All of the designers were given a challenge to make a project with lots of shimmer! I sure hope you can see the shimmer and shine on my card! I tried so hard to photograph this but shimmer and shine doesn't show up very well for me! Hopefully, you can see it in your imagination! :) For my card, I used some gorgeous SEI Peppermint Mint Foil paper for my color inspiration. For my cardstock, I used Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White. I stamped the poinsettia image from the set called Blessed Christmas four times and water-colored each one with ODBD ink pads: Olive, Victorian Rose and Terra Cotta. I cut out three of the poinsettias in various ways in order to layer them all together. I cut out the main image with a Spellbinders Oval die and sponged the edges. Then I sponged around the image with Sage Shadow ink. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the designer paper and then I sprayed the paper and all the poinsettia images with Suede Glimmer Mist!!! Seriously, I love this stuff! The Suede color is so pretty and sparkly but it also gives a Shabby Chic look that I love! It doesn't take too long to dry but you can always speed things along with your heat tool. I sponged the oval and layered this to a sponged Spellbinders Labels 4 die-cut. Then I put the poinsettia together. I love the way this gives it so much dimension! I punched a strip of Sage Shadow with an EK Success border punch and sponged. I lined up the sentiment with a Stamp-a-ma-jig and attached the strip to the card. Well, then I decided to glimmerize the ribbon! This just added to the shabby chic look! I finished the card with pretty pearls! What do you think?

Now, you can play along with our Shimmer and Shine Challenge! Just make a Holiday card with lots of shimmer using any type of shimmer and shine products you have. You do not have to use Our Daily Bread designs stamps but if you have them, we would love to see them! Link your card to the Latest Challenge Thread on the ODBD blog by Nov 15th at 8PM EST. You could be the winner of a $30.00 store credit!!!

Now head on over to Betty's blog to see what she has created and to get the next word you need to win the Poinsettia Collection! After visiting Betty, the next stop will be Silke's blog!

I suppose you would like to know my word now!
Ok, Ok!
My secret word is....






SAVIOR




Have fun today!

You will have until the 8PM EST on November 3rd
to email the DT names and their words!!

Good luck to all of you!!!!
