The winner will be posted on the ODBD Blog on October 3rd, 
so be sure to check back there to see if you have won!

My first project was so much fun!  I wanted to try for a vintage look.  I stamped the image from the Candy Cane set with brown ink on Kraft card stock.  I colored with copics and then painted the white stripes with bleach which gave the candy cane a really cool look!  ETA: I know I typed up another important part to the making of this card but it's not here!  After using the bleach, I painted the candy cane with stickles and then painted over that with glossy accents to get that vintage look!  The Candy Cane poem is cut out with ODBD Custom Elegant Ovals die.  I added a little button on the candy cane to complete the card!

Here is a closer look:

 And here is my second card:

A little more of a CAS card but with several layers.  This time I used the Jesus is the Reason set.  I colored the image with copics and added glossy accents and then stickles on the leaves and berries.  The top panel is cut with Spellbinders Labels 26 and layered over Spellbinders Eyelet Square.  I threaded red ribbon through the holes and finished the card!

Here are all the ODBD supplies I used today:

Thanks so much for sharing the new releases with us!
