Welcome to ODBD's September Release!!

Welcome everyone to ODBD's September release hop.  It's another release full of wonderful Stamps, Custom Dies and a beautiful Paper Collection.

And there will be Prizes!
Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website.  You have until September 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on September 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

My first card includes the Birthday Doily stamp set, the ODBD Custom Doily Dies, and the new Soulful Stitches Paper Collection.  This card was fun to make and came together so easily!!  I started with the card base, layered two of the papers together and sewed a zig-zag stitch for a border, then stamped the Birthday Doily over the papers.  Next I die-cut two Custom Doilies, stamped and cut the tag, created the ribbon and put everything together!  Final touches were adding liquid pearls and glitter with glaze to the button.

My next card for this month's release uses the same stamps, dies and papers along with one of last month's Flip Flop release stamps and dies.  I first stamped the doilies in different colors on the Soulful Stitches collection paper, adhered the white Die-Cut Doily, then stamped and Die-Cut the Flip Flops, stamped and cut the tag, and put everything together.  The final little touches were a 'highlight' of glaze on the sentiment and the sequins/beads on the flip-flops.  Love how this one came out!!

Life is Better

I also have a couple of other cards as a part of this release - one is very CASE for me, but I had some left-over elements on my table and they were sort-of calling out for me to make something with them.  So one day after work I picked them up and made this card.  The little flower is a cut-out of the Birthday Doily center:

And then there's my side-step card, which I love!!  This set features the Birthday Doily stamp set and the Soulful Stitches Paper collection.  I stamped the Doily on the top layer of the Sun and behind the Sentiment banner, and I used a stamp set and die from last month's release for the Flip Flop border and sentiment.
