and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

ODBD December Release

Hello friends!  Can you believe it's December already?  It is...and it's time for a new release by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I LOVE stamp sets that are versatile and can be used year round!  The December release by Our Daily Bread Designs fits that bill perfectly!   One stamp set, two sentiment sets, a background, and matching dies all coordinate to make creating cards for any occasion, from elegant to clean and simple, a breeze!  Just visit all of the designers' blogs for a sampling of the many ways these gorgeous stamp sets can be used.

Three winners will be randomly chosen from one of the designers' blog comments to receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps.  You have until December 2, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on December 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


Creative Nugget:  Elements from the stamp sets were simply stamped in black on Vintage Cream card stock, cut with the coordinating dies, and layered to create this simple but elegant card.
Here is the second one:
Creative Nugget:  Two panels were made by clear embossing the Ornate Background on Mixed Media paper.  The paper was spritzed with water and distress inks were added with a paint brush.  Course salt was sprinkled on and both panels were dried with a heat tool.  The salt was rubbed off with a paper towel creating a soft, subtle design.  Spellbinders Curved Borders Two Dies were cut and embossed on an angle to  make the border. Some seam binding was threaded through a hole punched in the little flower to make the corner accent.  Fancy Foliage flourishes and a few pearls finish the card.


My third sample is just a quick, clean and simple card using the Ornate Borders and Flowers, Ornate Border Sentiments, and the Ornate Borders and Flowers Die.
Creative Nugget:  To get the variation of color on the flowers, they were stamped with a Kaleidacolor ink pad.


Here are the products now available from the 
Our Daily Bread Designs Store used to make my samples:
