ODBD December 2014 Release

Hello friends!  WOW…what a Release Our Daily Bread Designs has for you this month...Tags and tickets perfect for sending messages for any occasion throughout the year, beautiful gates, and even an old vintage sleigh for last minute Christmas cards!  The Design Team has some awe inspiring samples to share, so be sure to visit all of their blogs!

Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until December, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers' Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on December 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


Here are two samples using the new release products.
Creative Nugget:  The snowflakes from the Sparkling Snowflakes stamp set and the sled image from the beautiful new Let It Snow stamp set were both stamped in VersaMark ink and embossed with Seafoam White embossing powder on a Kraft panel cut with the Flourished Star Pattern Die.  This panel was matted in Vintage Cream and mounted on a Kraft card base.  The gold jingle bells were rolled in VersaMark ink, embossed with Seafoam White to match, and while still hot, embossed with Clear Sparkle Embossing Glitter for some shimmer.  White metallic thread was used to hang the bells and a bow added.  The sentiment was embossed in Kraft on a ticket which was  cut with the new Mini Tags Dies and mounted to a Kraft postage stamp die cut.  Some cheesecloth was tucked behind the sentiment and a popped up snowflake cut with the Snowflake Die was added to finish the card.

Creative Nugget:  The little snowman scene from the Warm Wishes stamp set was colored with Copic markers and the panel mounted to a Neenah Solar Crest card base.  A frame was created on another panel of Neenah and some True Black card stock by cutting circles with the Circle Ornament Die and the Matting Circle Die.  The sentiment from Let It Snow was embossed along with some Swiss Dots on the frame panel which was popped onto the card with foam tape.  Now the fun of adding the Gilded Gate!  A little wreath was made to hang on the gate using the pine bough from the Fancy Foliage Dies The little heart charms and the little tag were cut with the Mini Tags Dies.  The heart charms were glittered, a Mini Tag Sentiment stamped, and both were hung on the gate to finish the card.

Here are the new supplies available at the

Beautiful pair of cards. The globe gate with wreath is so creative! I look forward to your future posts!

Andrea La Vigne said...

Wow wow wow! When I saw your first card, with all the white embossing, my immediate reaction was, "OOOH!" I just think it's amazing, and the cheesecloth plays off the detail in the ribbon on the sled stamp. And the snowman scene is just so cute! Love all the added detail with the gate diecut, and the wreath & greeting tag hung on it. Thanks so much for sharing these!!!
