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)

Happy Anniversary to Our Daily Bread Designs


Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs Anniversary Blog Hop!  You are in for a treat today, so sit back and enjoy the Design Team creations as you hop along with us and help us celebrate seven fabulous years!

Of course there will be PRIZES…seven randomly selected winners will receive one of the new ODBD Anniversary stamp sets just for commenting on the Design Team cards! You have until March 19, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to comment on the Designers' Blogs for a chance to win!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 20th, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


My sample was made with the new God Verses Anniversary Stamp Set.

Creative Nugget:  This comforting verse from the book of James is one of the scriptures from the new God Verses stamp set.  The background for my card was made using the Wax Paper Resist Technique demonstrated by the talented Angella Crockett and can be found on the ODBD You Tube Channel.  The next layer of this card was made with the Quatrefoil Pattern Die and was popped up with foam tape.  Next, the Gilded Gate die cut was painted with a layer of Glossy Accents and added.  Both the positive and negative layers of the Grass Border were used for depth.  The morning glories from the Glory stamp set were colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut with several extra flowers popped up for dimension, and added to the Quatrefoil layer.  The scripture verse was cut and matted using the Antique Labels Dies.  A silk ribbon and several flowers cut with one of the dies in the Ornamental Crosses die set were added to finish garden scene.


The stamps and dies used to make this card can be found 
at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store!

Oh, Cathy, this is an absolutely beautiful card! You've created a garden scene this is so delicate and lovely! It reminds me of the hymn, "I come to the garden alone...and He walks with me...and He talks with me..." Your creativity has no bounds, and I love how you've used these dies so beautifully, added gloss to the gilded fence and fussy cutting the flowers and adding grass!! What a precious card this will be for a special someone! Stunning, as always!! Hugs!
