Christmas Card Challenge 2012-Mar

Hi everyone!  
I got my quota of Christmas cards done for March for the CCC12 Christmas Card Challenge on SCS!  
Four of the ones above and four of these!

These adorable images are from digistampcharacters!   I colored them with copics and made simple backgrounds for each!  The Christmas sentiment is from a SU! set.  Oh and I also added some white dots with a white paint pen!  
Thanks for looking and hope you have a great day!

Refresh the Soul

Hi everyone!  Here is another card I made with one of the new ODBD March releases, called Sweet Friendship.  I stamped the scripture and cut it out with Spellbinders Antique Frame die.  The background is designer paper embossed with a Cuttlebug Preserves folder.  I painted the background and the frame with pink acrylic paint!  Kind of an interesting look!  I added lace and pink roses to complete the card!  

This is for the following challenges:

Go Often

Hi there!  Happy Spring!  Hoping it is nice and warm where you are!  

I have another card that I made using the quote I chose to go in one of the new ODBD anniversary sets!  The quote is by Emerson and is included in the Quote Collection 2 set.  I stamped it on Prima designer paper and cut it out with a Spellbinders Labels 4.  The same designer paper is behind the Cheery Lynn Designs Lattice.  I sponged the edges of the label and the lattice layer with SU! Blush Blossom ink.  Then I added Cheery Lynn Designs Flourish and Butterfly.  Next I added some Prima Flowers over a Bow Easy bow and some pretty pearls.  I sprayed the card with glimmer mist too!  

I am entering this to the following challenges:

In My Heart

Hi there!!!  I made this for the SCS TLC today!  The challenge was to crop your image to fit your design.  I sort of did this with the Out of the Box technique.  Stamp and color your image (I used copics) and trim part of it to where you want the die to cut.  I used Spellbinders circles.  The stamps are from ODBD.  The bird image is from the Sing to the Lord set and the scripture is from the new set called Sweet Friendship.  I used Prima designer paper and DCWV designer paper.  I added circles of pearls, a button, crochet thread and glimmer mist.  Oh and a white paint pen too!!!  Thanks so much for looking!  Hope you have a wonderful evening!

Happy 4th Anniversary ODBD!!!

Good morning and welcome to the  
Our Daily Bread designs 4th Anniversary Special Design Team Edition Release Blog Hop!  
If you got here from Lori's Blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you are sure to not miss anyone!  If any links are lost along the way, you can always get the entire list of links from the ODBD Blog as well!

  We are so excited to be celebrating this special milestone in the life of ODBD!  It is such a blessing to work for a company that brings glory to God in every stamp set created, and offers us the tools we need to do the same with every card we create!  If you are a long time follower of ODBD, then you know that each year, the Design Team submits a favorite Scripture for the special anniversary sets, and those suggestions have been the sum total of all the "Scripture Collection" stamp sets in the store.  This year, the special sets include our favorite Scriptures, but also quotes and sentiments that we feel would be great on cards or  projects.  We think you will find some of the most encouraging and uplifting words available in stamps in these special anniversary sets!

So now, here are the Details of the Anniversary Hop:

  • The Hop will run 8am EDT Mar. 17 until 8pm EDT Mar 18.
  • The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Mar 19.
  • Four  hoppers will win a FREE ANNIVERSARY SET and One blessed hopper will win The Complete Anniversary  Bread Basket Bundle!!!
Here is what you have to do to be qualified to win one of these prizes:
  • Hop to each designer’s blog and leave a comment
  • Return to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and leave a comment telling us that you completed the hop, making note if there were any you could not comment on.
  • Along with your statement that you completed the hop, leave some Anniversary wishes for Kelley and the gang at ODBD!

I chose to submit a quote this year!  I have always loved this one by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  Such eloquence!  I hope you will enjoy it too!  Ok I'll make this quick since you have lots of hopping to do!!  I combined my quote, which is part of the new Quote Collection 2 set, with a beautiful older set called Path of Life.  I colored the image with copics.  I cut out two windows with the Spellbinders/ODBD Custom Window Die from White card stock and a soft blue designer paper.  I cut out the quote and attached it to the bottom of the window.  Then I added Cheery Lynn Designs Flourishes and Prima Flowers!  I used the top parts of the blue window for embellishments in the bottom corners too!

All of us really appreciate you taking some time to hop with us!  
Thank you for joining us on this special day!!!

Now I will send you to the next stop on the hop, 
Kathy Jones!  Have fun!!!

See you soon!!!

For the Love of Backgrounds!


We are having a special anniversary week here at ODBD and have had a great week so far!  Today, several of the bread sticks have cards to share with you that feature the wonderful backgrounds that ODBD has to offer!  Today it is all about BACKGROUNDS!!!  If you arrived here from Grace's Blog   then you are in the right place! If not please begin the hop at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog.  Make sure you leave a comment on each designers' blog because one of the blogs is a hot spot and a name will be drawn from those comments to win a $15.00 ODBD store gift certificate!  You have until March 28 to leave your comment and the winner will be announced on March 29th!  Hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!  Now here is my card!

I chose three backgrounds to use for this card!!!  Yes, three!!!  

I stamped the Wood Background first in brown ink and then stamped the Old Flag Background in black ink.  I colored the flag in with copics and then used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink dragging it over the image to give it that distressed/aged look.  On the background behind the flag layer, I stamped the Wood Background in brown and then the He Shall Be Called Background in black.  I did the same inking technique on this layer but used less ink.  Then I tore some lace into pieces, and glued and smooshed it into place in the corner.  I stamped the sentiment from the God Bless America set, and cut it out with the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners die.  I glued down the USA charm and hemp twine to complete the card!  Here is a closer view:

Now head on over to Deb's blog to see what she has created for you!  Don't forget all the festivities this week for ODBD's 4th anniversary.  The much anticipated Anniversary Release Day Blog hop is this weekend and we hope you will join us as we celebrate!  Thanks again for stopping by!
