Welcome to the ODBD March Release!


 Good morning!  It's March already!!!  2014 is galloping along full speed ahead!  

Today is release day at Our Daily Bread designs!  And as usual, Kelley has blown us away with more fabulous sets, dies and paper!!!  Y'all are gonna love 'em!   

And here is how you can win:

Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designer's blogs to receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps.  You have until March 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

My first card features the new Zinnia set along with the coordinating Zinnia and Leaves Dies.  I cut out the base flower with the new die but the other two layers were cut out free hand just so I could get a little dimension.   I added a Beautiful Border and the sentiment is cut out with Ornate Borders and Flowers die.  Oh and there is some Fancy Foliage too!  Each piece is sponged with distress ink for a shabby look.


And I love the little Hummingbird and the Bee Balm so much!  I have had the pleasure the last couple of years to enjoy several Hummingbird feeders in my backyard and I am looking forward to having the little creatures visit again this year!  And I think I need to plant some Bee Balm!  In the meantime, we can enjoy the new stamps and dies from ODBD!  I made a frame with Spellbinders A-2 dies and have the new Daisy Chain die cut behind the frame.  The Bee Balm image is colored with copics and cut out with the Antique Labels and Borders die.  I colored the little hummer and cut him out with the new Hummingbird die.  To complete the card I added some stickles!  

Here are the products I used for these two projects:

  2. Both, the bee and the hummingbird cards are absolutely lovely. The rhinestones around the zinnia center really make this a show card.

  3. Trying to pick a favorite is impossible because both of these cards are fabulous! I really love the look of the Daisy Chain die cut. White-on-white always looks elegant and, in this case, it makes the colored images and ribbon really pop!

  8. Wonderful! The pearl button looks amazing on that Zinnia. I wish the coordinating die was a bit more accurate, so there was no white space around the flower. Love both cards!
