and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Welcome to ODBD July 2015 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs July 2015 Release!   Love looking out my window and seeing all the greenery, flowers and birds…especially in the summer!  Our Daily Bread Designs July release includes the perfect window for creating outdoor scenes! Wait until you see the beautiful roses and angel wings also being released this month.  Get ready for some wonderful July inspiration from the talented Bread Basket Designers!

My first sample uses the new 
Angels Descending stamp set.
Creative Nugget:  The "Wrinkle Free Distress Technique" was used on Mixed Media paper before it was embossed with the Sunburst Background Die to create the heavenly background for this card. A little sponging was done to highlight some of the rays. The vellum wings were cut with the Angel Wings Dies and the angel wings from the Angels Descending stamp set were fussy cut, covered with Stickles, and popped onto the vellum wings.  The sentiment was stamped on clouds cut with the Clouds & Raindrops Dies.  A rhinestone flourish and several smaller rhinestones were added to finish the card and give it some sparkle.


Love, love, love the new Fragrance stamp set!
Creative Nugget:  Diagonal lines were scored on the front of Neenah Solar Crest card stock to create the tiles for the front of the card.  The rose image from the Fragrance stamp set was randomly stamped over the front of the card and this panel was cut with the rectangle from the Flourished Star Pattern Die.  The roses were then colored with gray Copic Markers for a vintage look.  The tiles were masked and sponged with light pink ink.  This panel was then matted and stitched to the card base.  Frames were cut from card stock and paper from the Shabby Rose Collection using Layered Lacey Square Dies and Spellbinders Square Nesties.  The sentiment was added to the center of the smaller frame.  One of the roses was fussy cut and popped up on the corner of the smaller frame.  A bow made from seam binding and several pearls were added to finish the card.


Here are the two new stamp sets used on my samples now available at 
…and some previously released Die sets and Paper:

These are both really beautiful, Cathy. I like that first background (but am not sure I am familiar with that technique). Those wings are really gorgeous. And again, I love the "tile" technique that you used with the fragrance stamps. Really great inspirations.
