Welcome to ODBD's May Release!!

Hello everyone - and welcome to another fabulous ODBD release.  For those hopping along with us you know what I'm talking about!!

My first card features the new Trois Jolis Papillons and Tres Papillons butterfly stamps and dies, and the new Butterfly and Bugs stamps and dies.  I started with the wonderful double-display card base and beautiful Shabby Rose Collection Papers.  These papers have subtle butterflies so definitely inspired my design.

Here's a peek at the card wrapped in a little bow :)



Next I measured, cut and glued all the shabby rose papers to the card base, then went to work stamping and die-cutting all the butterflies.  I had fun working with these perfect little butterflies :). Next I went to work on the inside sentiment panel - here's a peak of the inside:




I stamped the Lords Prayer onto one of my favorite of the Shabby Rose Papers, carefully aligning the words around the beautiful roses, and die-cut it using ODBD's custom Layered Lacey Squares die. Here's a photo of the fully extended double display:




Last steps were stamping random butterflies directly onto the papers, adding the lighter die-cut butterflies on and around the Lords Prayer panel and adding the sequins.  As a final touch I added light pink and clear gel to the roses on the front and inside of the card - just to make them pop!!

That may show a little better in the next photo:



My next card features the same new stamps and dies, in a more clean and simple design.  First I stamped the Lords Prayer onto Vellum card stock.  Next I repeat/randomly stamped butterflies in grey ink and used that panel as a frame over the vellum.




Last steps were stamping, coloring and die-cutting the Vellum Butterflies.  Here's one more photo:

Welcome to ODBD's April Release!!

Hi Everyone!!  We have another amazing ODBD Release to share with you.  My goodness is this ever a fun release - and just perfect for Spring!   There are four new stamp sets, one background stamp, and three custom die sets.  I hope if you're hopping along with us that you're enjoying all the beautiful creations by the ODBD DT.  They're creativity is such an inspiration.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Anniversary celebration, and thank you too for all your kind comments.  It's a wonderful thing to share ODBD with everyone, and to know their scripture, quotes and sentiment stamps and messages touch so many people!!!

On to my projects.  My first card features the new April Showers Stamp set, along with the Custom Umbrellas and Custom Clouds and Raindrops Die sets.  I also used ODBD's fab Shabby Rose Collection Papers, their Fun and Fancy Side-Step card base and several other favorite ODBD dies.  I started by adding the rose papers to the card base, and then die-cutting the clouds, umbrella, and sentiment elements.

Next I went to work die-cutting all the grass and little flowers.  I used the new Grass Border die along with the Fancy Foliage leafy stem and some little flowers from the Cross and Poinsettia custom die sets,  Next I glued/popped the clouds and sentiment panel, glued all the grasses, leaves and flowers, added the Umbrella and then moved on to the final touches - the little raindrops and flower centers.

Here's another view:

My next card features the same new stamps and dies, along with some other favorite papers and dies. To make this I started with ODBD's Fun and Fancy Center Step card base and used some scraps from one of my favorite papers - the Rose Collection papers.  I created a collage of various scraps and glued those papers down onto the card base.

Next I die-cut the Clouds, Umbrella and Fancy Foliage flourishes and leaves.  I used the Partial Die Cutting technique to make the two-sided sentiment banner, and the Beautiful Borders die to create the little corner elements on the sides.

Final steps were arranging and gluing all the elements.  I loved working with these wonderful little paper flowers!!  Here's a final view:

Our Daily Bread Designs Anniversary!!

Hi Everyone - Thanks for stopping by.  Today we're celebrating Day 4 of ODBD's 7th Anniversary  - with two Special Edition Commemorative Stamp Sets.  And we're giving away 7 free stamps to 7 lucky winners!!  This is such a special time at ODBD - I hope you can join in the celebration with us.

My card today features one of the stamps form the new God Quotes set.  Here's a close-up view:

God Quotes

To make this card I started with the sentiment panel - stamping and die-cutting those layers.  Next I created the card base and die-cut that background layer.  After that I went to work on the Butterflies - and I decided to try something different...  I stamped/die-cut the butterfly on Velum card stock, then colored them using Sakura Glaze pens.  The cool thing is that the Glaze didn't dry on the velum right away - which allowed me to blend the colors a bit.  After that I used a heat tool to set the ink.  They were a bit deformed from the Glaze and heat, so I used a bone-folder to curve them back into shape.

Here's another photo:

God's Gift

Next I die-cut the Fancy Foliage out of ODBD papers, played with placement, and then started gluing/mounting everything.  The butterflies were so vibrant that I felt they needed something else - like flowers :)!!!  So after everything was together I added the flowers - some are punched and some are made using the little flower from the Ornamental Crosses set.  Playing with flowers is one of my favorite things - and I felt the more flowers I added the more at home the butterflies seemed to be LOL!!

Speaking of butterflies - here's a super close-up shot.  The velum makes them seem almost real - like they're about to take off!!

Last touches were the pearls and liquid pearl flower centers.

Here's one more shot, this time of the full card:

ODBD Scripture & Anniversary Celebration!!


Hi Everyone - welcome to ODBD's Scripture Blog Hop!!  I love this time of year at ODBD, because it means we're celebrating an Anniversary - and one of the ways we celebrate is by using an ODBD scripture on our projects.  This year we're celebrating with Two Bloghops - the first is today, where we're sharing cards and projects using ODBD's wonderful Scripture sets.  The next is on 17th, which is our official Anniversary Celebration!  And you know - there will be PRIZES.  You can find more details about the prizes further down in this post.

My card is made using ODBD's Scripture Collection 11.  This set has four beautiful stamps, and for this card I chose Psalm 145:18.  My card also features our new Shabby Rose Collection papers.  To make this card I started by creating a layout/sketch.  Next I created the card base and curvy border layers and went to work on the scripture panel.

The Lord is Near - Close-up

After that panel was stamped and die-cut I started on the flowers and flourishes.  I used some pre-made paper roses from my stash along with some die-cut and punched flowers.  I started with the paper roses and removed all the leaves on the underside of the flowers.  They were different greens and much too dark for my project.  Next I determined placement of the flourishes and glued those down, then added the paper roses and die-cut/punched smaller flowers.

Here's another view:

The Lord is Near - Alt View

Last steps were die-cutting/sponging the tiny leaves, placing those all around the flowers, and adding the linen thread bow and die-cut cross at the top.  I also added little dots of liquid pearls to the flower centers.

Here's one more photo:

The Lord is Near

I absolutely love how pretty and feminine this card looks with these beautiful shabby rose papers.  I hope you like it too!
