September Our Daily Bread designs Blog Hop!!


Good Morning! 
If you are here for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Be Inspired Wednesday, click on the link.


It's stamp release day for Our Daily Bread designs and we are celebrating with a two day blog hop!  If you arrived here from Our Daily Bread designs blog, then you are heading in the right direction!!!  I am the first stop for the hop and I am so glad you are here!!!  Kelley is offering three chances to win gift certificates for ODBD stamps!!!!  The prizes are hidden along the hop and all you have to do for a chance to win is comment on each designer's blog and then leave a comment on the ODBD blog stating that you have completed the hop and left a comment on each blog.  That's it!!!  We want this to be fun, so if you have trouble leaving a comment anywhere, just mention that in your comment at the ODBD blog!  You have until 8 pm EST on Thursday, the 2nd to complete the hop.  The winners will be announced on Saturday on the ODBD blog during the Shining The Light Challenge!  Now on with the show!

For the card above, I used the new set called Peace and a new border set called Brocade Borders.  The borders are stamped and cut out and glued to frame the beautiful sentiment.  The background K & Co designer paper is embossed with the Cassie's Brocade embossing folder.  I sponged Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink on all pieces.  Some edges are distressed with a distressing tool and I punched a border on the suede strip across the front.  The cardstock is SU! Blush Blossom and Soft Suede.  And do you believe I made the flower?  I know, I don't believe it myself, but I did!  LOL!  I started by punching a circle and putting some glue on one side.  I twisted some tulle and wound it around and around starting in the middle and going out to the edge.  I pierced a hole in the middle so I could add the pearl brad and the ribbon leaves.  Now this was pretty messy, and left some signs of glue because I don't know what I'm doing!  haha!  Anyway, to hide the glue I added some stickles!  Turned out ok in the end!  Zva pearls complete the card.

And here is my second card for today's hop:



This card uses the new set called Never Thirst.  I just love this nostalgic image!  I colored it with copic markers and sponged the blue sky.  I used the Out of the Box Nestie technique to cut out the Spellbinders circle around the image so that the bucket is hanging over the edge.  I popped up the bucket over the fence border and added the trailing vine of flowers cut with a Cuttlebug die.  I added the large Prima flower and Zva pearls to finish the card.  I used Mellow Moss cardstock with Anna Griffin designer paper.  And that's it!

Now from here, please visit my incredibly talented and amazing DT sister, Dawn Lusk!  
We hope you enjoy the hop and that you have a wonderful and blessed day!
Thank so much for joining us!

  27. Gorgeous cards. I'm pleased with your explanation of the 'flower making', because I can identify with that aspect of trying to make something. It's inspiring to know that designers often have the same problems I do when making a card! Serendipity ruled, because it sure was lovely. Mary H.

  66. Hi Sandee~

    I love that flower on the 1st card. It is just amazing! I can't believe your just sat down to make one and...VOILA! Wonderful! I really like that Sentiment, and I REALLY like the Brocade Borders! They are beautiful. Anything by Anna Griffin is Fabulous in my book! Love the dp and the Zva Pearls, too.

    On the 2nd card, I felt as if I were transformed to a backyard in the 1950's. Adorable fence, I love how you hung the basket over it! And you colored it so nicely, too! I love the dp!

    Both cards are GORGEOUS!
