And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

ODBD November Release

Hello Friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs November Release! Five stamp sets, three mini backgrounds, and two new die sets perfect for your Christmas card making are being released today!  You can see all of the wonderful samples created by the talented design team with this month's new release on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog. One winner will be randomly chosen from one of the designers blog comments to receive a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store to be used toward the purchase of ODBD stamps.  You have until November 2, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The winner will be posted on the ODBD Blog on November 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

I have two samples to share with you today.  My first sample uses The Earth stamp set.  Not only can this set be used for Christmas, depending on the sentiment and colors used, but as used here, an expression of appreciation.



Creative Nugget:  I decided to make a Floating Spinner card so the earth could spin to reveal The Earth image on one side and a sentiment from the set on the other. The front of the card and the inside are decorated with Authentique papers, a scallop punched border, ribbon, and pearls.  The directions for the card can be found on the Fancy Folds & Motion Paper Crafts CD by Technique Junkies.


This photo shows the other side of the spinner.


And this photo shows the spinning mechanism a little better.

For my second sample, I used the new Poinsettia Wreath stamp set and some of the gorgeous new Christmas Paper Collection 2013 papers.



Creative Nugget:  The front of the card uses some of the beautiful papers from the Christmas Paper Collection 2013 arranged in a quilt pattern.  The papers were stitched to Rustic White card stock and mounted to a Cranberry Crisp card base.  Pearls were placed around the central panel to add a bit of elegance to the card. My intension was to use the Poinsettia Wreath in the center of the card, but it covered up too much of the pretty quilt pattern, so I settled for the small poinsettia which was also part of the set. The little poinsettia was cut with the matching Poinsettia Die, colored with Copic Markers, and popped onto a bow made from Bakers Twine.  Seed beads were colored with a Copic Marker and glued to the center of the flower, and the sentiment, on a tag cut with the Recipe Card & Tags Die, was sponged and attached to finish the card. 


Here are the stamps and dies from the 
Our Daily Bread Designs Store used to create my samples:
