Our Daily Bread July Releases Are Here and This is My First Blog Hop!


Today is July 1st! That means it’s release day at Our Daily Bread designs and we are celebrating with a Blog Hop! This is my first Hop and I am so excited! If you landed here after visiting the amazing Silke’s blog, you are on the right course! If not, start at ODBD’s blog to follow along. Kelley, the owner of ODBD, is giving away some great candy several places along the way, so have fun following the Hop!

It’s official! I have been a guest designer for this great company since March, and today I am an official Design Team Member! I love working with Kelley and all of the other ‘breadsticks’. This continues to be one of the best experiences of my life!


Now, on with the show!
The Amazing Grace Collection!



And the Mother Teresa Collection!




The first card I am showing you today focuses on the Amazing Grace sets!


The Hour I First Believed



I made my own designer paper for this card! I stamped the background with the hymn and the dogwood flowers with Memento Black ink. Then I sponged all over with three different Our Daily Bread inkpads: Olive, Terracotta, and Victorian Rose. You may not be able to see but I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist! I have become quite the Glimmer Girl lately! I stamped the flowers with Olive and then stamped the second verse of Amazing Grace over the flower. I cut the ovals with Spellbinders Nestabilities dies and sponged the edges with Rose. I sponged the Hero Arts Flowers with the Rose and Terracotta and layered them together to create the blossom. The scallop border at the bottom was done with an EK Success border punch. I added (SU!)ribbon, cuttlebug corners and Hero Arts Pearls to finish the card!


Paper-Old Olive and White(StampinUp!)


And here is my second card for today’s release.

This card features the Mother Teresa sets!


In The Giving




I sponged and sponged and sponged on this one! Good thing I love sponging! This beautiful lotus blossom and sentiment is heat embossed with Versamark and black embossing powder. I used an oval Nestabilities die for the sentiment and the Labels Four die set for the Lotus and the layer just underneath. I then used an Ornare piercing template for the pierced design above and below the lotus and added black pearls. The next layer is cuttlebugged and sponged. The edges of the olive layer is distressed. I added the ribbon and cross charm. The pink corners were an afterthought. I had discarded them from a previous project, but they match so great with the Victorian Rose ink!


Paper-Rose Red, Old Olive, Really Rust, Regal Rose, White (all SU!)

Ink-ODBD Victorian Rose, Olive, Terracotta

Accessories-Ornare, Spellbinders, Cuttlebug, cross charm, black pearls


You will notice that on both cards I used the same ink colors! Kelley has begun her own line of ink pads! Yep, that’s right! And they are all so gorgeous! So keep hopping because three lucky people will win three ink pads of their choice each! WOW!


From here,

head on over to Kathy’s wonderful blog for some eye candy to ooh and ahh over!


Have fun and thanks for coming by my blog today!
