ODBD February 2014 Release

Hello friends!  February brings us just a little bit closer to spring and warmer weather…and I'm ready for that…how about you?  The beginning of February also brings us a new release from Our Daily Bread Designs, and WOW…what a release it is…romantic, vintage, and whimsical heart stamp sets along with gorgeous heart dies perfect for Valentine's Day, Wedding, and Anniversary cards and gifts!  You will see gorgeous and diverse samples with this release as you visit the blogs of my super talented Sister Sticks!

Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs to receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store to be used toward the purchase of ODBD stamps.  You have until February 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on February 3rd, so be sure to check there to see if you won!


My first sample uses the Clean Heart stamp set, the Ornate Hearts Dies, and the Beautiful Borders Dies

Creative Nugget:  The Clean Heart was white embossed on Kraft card stock and some of the little flowers were colored in with Gelatos and rubbed in with a baby wipe for just a touch of color. This was mounted on the largest of the Ornate Heart Dies.  One of the Beautiful Borders was added behind the heart and both were mounted on a piece of designer paper which was stitched to Cherry Cobbler card stock and a coordinating piece of designer paper on an angle.  Another layer of Cherry Cobbler was added and the whole card front was mounted to a Soft Stone card base. A double bow, a little Ornate Heart stamped with one of the sentiments from the Clean Heart stamp set, and a pearl finish the card.

My second sample uses a different sentiment from the Clean Heart  stamp set along with the Ornate Hearts Dies, the Beautiful Borders Dies, and some of the beautiful new Heart and Soul Paper Collection.


Creative Nugget: The Heart and Soul Designer Paper and the Ornate Hearts Dies are the main feature on this card as the only stamping is the sentiment.  The papers and dies are layered onto Basic Gray card stock and a Solar Crest card front.  A bow, silver cord, and silver pearls finish the card.

In case you missed it, here is another card already posted on my blog…click HERE for the details.
