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 September 2014 Release

Hello friends!  Happy Labor Day!  Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs September Release!  If you enjoy needlework of any kind this release is especially for you, but if not, there are plenty of pretties I'm sure you will want to add to your collection of stamp images and sentiments!  The Design Team has been having a lot of fun working with these new stamps, dies, and papers, so join us as we share these new products with you.

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!


Here is a card made with the new Doily Die (*LOVE*), 
the Sewing Mini Set, and the Soulful Stitches Paper Collection:

Creative Nugget:  The card front was created with some of the beautiful new Soulful Stitches Paper and Vintage Cream card stock with a Beautiful Border between the two.  These were stitched to Smokey Shadow card stock and mounted to a Vintage Cream card base. The Doily Die was tucked under the border and the sentiment from the Sewing stamp set stamped in Watering Can Archival ink. The patch from the Sewing set was stamped on several coordinating papers from the Soulful Stitches Collection and layered across the card. The seam binding ties everything together and a few pearls were added to finish the card.

My second sample was made with a Double Display card base!

Creative Nugget:  The mats were made with Smokey Shadow card stock and papers from the Soulful Stitches Paper Collection.  A stamp positioner was used to get the patch from the Sewing set to fit on some of the panels.  Distress inks were applied directly to the Birthday Doily stamp, misted with water, and stamped onto Mixed Media paper.  The doily was cut with the Doily Die as well as a mat from Smokey Shadow.  These were then cut in half and attached to each side of the card.  A Vintage Pattern Die was used for the sentiment and was attached to just the left side of the card so it could open.  Slits were made in the label so the seam binding could be threaded through and tied to keep the card closed.  

Here is the card opened!
Creative Nugget:  The Elizabeth dress form was colored with Copic Markers and cut and mounted with the Vintage Label Die. You can see just a little of the Doily Die peeking out from behind. The inside sentiment on the inside, right panel was stamped on an Antique Label Die.  A few pearls add the finishing touch!

Just take a look at these beautiful new ODBD 
September Release products  
 that were used to create these samples!
