Celebrating 6 Years at ODBD

That's right... the Our Daily Bread Designs Store has been open for SIX years! We are celebrating today with four new Anniversary stamp sets...two Scripture Collections: 12 and 13, a Quote Collection, and a Sentiment Collection.  Each member of the Design Team has contributed their favorite scripture, quote, or sentiment to these inspiring "Go TO" stamp sets, so sit back and enjoy the samples we have made for you!

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 towards the purchase of ODBD stamps.  ONE lucky random commenter will be chosen to win the 2014 Anniversary Bundle!  You have until March 18th, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments!  The winners will be posted here on the ODBD Blog on March 19th, so be sure to check back to see if you won!


My first sample is my contribution to Quote Collection 4.
Creative Nugget:  The scene from The Mighty Sea was sponged, stamped with Versafine ink, and colored with Copic Markers on a Solar Crest panel.  A frame was cut from Kraft card stock with Classic Circle Nesties, stamped with the Fishing Net Background, and attached so the sea could be seen through the frame.  The banner panel was hand cut, sponged, and stamped with the Corrie ten Boom quote.  Some piercing was done inside the frame and a little stitching holds the banner onto the card front.  Some netting and shells were added and the front panels attached to a Basic Black card base.  Two little sea birds were carefully hand cut and popped on for dimension to finish the card.

Here is another quote from Quote Collection 4:
Creative Nugget:  Spellbinder Opulent Oval Dies and some soft sponging were used to frame this beautiful quote from the set. The SB A2 Filigree Delight Die was stitched to Kraft card stock and mounted to a Blushing Bride card base to form the front of the card.  Piercing was added around the frame and an ODBD Custom Beautiful Border Die was attached toward the bottom of the frame.  The seam binding was sponged to match the card and attached between the oval layers.  The tails of the bow were woven through the gaps in the frame.  One of the small hearts from the Bless Your Heart stamp set was white embossed on kraft and the other was sponged on Vintage Cream.  Both were cut with the ODBD Custom Ornate Heart Dies.  A few pink pearls finish the card.

I just love all of the quotes from this wonderful set and know that I will be reaching for them time and again!  Here are the many ODBD supplies used to create these two samples:


You will find all of the gorgeous DT cards from our Anniversary Release on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog. The links to the individual blogs for your comments are listed below for your convenience.
