Welcome to ODBD October 2015 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs October 2015 Release!   It's not too early to get started on creating those Christmas cards needed for this year and Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing stamps and dies that are just what you need to begin.  Get ready to see some gorgeous Christmas creations from the talented Breadstick Designers!

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 October 2, 2015 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 October 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


My first sample uses the new Elegant Embellishments stamp set and matching Elegant Embellishments Dies.

Creative Nugget:  Papers from the Christmas Collection 2015 were matted with deep red card stock and adhered to the Vintage Cream card base.  The scene outside the window was sponged with Distress inks and stamped with the tree from the North Coast Creations Deer Silhouette Greetings stamp set.  Snowdrifts made with the Leafy Edged Borders were added.  The windowsill was cut with the Welcoming Window Dies.  The hanging ornaments were stamped with the Elegant Embellishments stamp set and cut with the matching Elegant Embellishments Dies.  The top layer of each was covered with VersaMark ink and embossed with Clear Sparkle Embossing Glitter.  Fancy Foliage Dies and the Peaceful Poinsettia Dies were used to make the swag on the windowsill. Finally, the topper was cut with the Leafy Edged Border Dies.

My second sample was made with the pretty Adore Him Die.

Creative Nugget:  The background for this card was made with papers from the Christmas Collection 2014 and the Leafy Edged Borders stitched to light pink card stock.  The Layered Lacy Square Die was modified with partial die cutting to make the frame for the pretty Adore Him die cut which is actually five layers glued together for dimension.  The top layer of the Adore Him die cut was embossed with Clear Sparkle Glitter.  The Elegant Embellishments ornament was stamped on Vintage Cream card stock with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and fussy cut.  The matching Elegant Embellishments Die was used to cut a mat for the ornament out of the light pink card stock.  The ornament was also embossed with Clear Sparkle Glitter.  Some twine and colored rhinestones were added to finish the card.

These new products from the ODBD Store were used 
to create the samples above
…and these old favorites…
…and this one from North Coast Creations, a sister company of ODBD:

Cathy, I love your blog post and all the write ups for your cards!
Your cards are beautiful! I love the curved Leafy Edged border die on top of your first card!! It looks so elegant and your window and scene are gorgeous! Your mix of paper is perfect!
Your second card is beautiful as well. I love the rectangle inside of the square! Gives much more room for that large die. Beautiful sewing as always and the twine is perfect too...matches so well!

Just beautiful - so rich and elegant, and highlighting the reason for Christmas - I like the way the two sentiments go together in the second card.

Your window scene in the first card was

Your use of the elegant embellishments items is wonderful, so pretty. Love the cards.

Pages with Paula said...

As always, you ladies sure give us some beautiful cards to enjoy! Your first card is so clever with the ornaments and the window. However, I have fallen in love with the die you used on the second card! It is purely awesome! Paula

Bunny said...

The first card with the Elegant Embellishment dies and stamps is very nice. With the window it makes it look like we're looking out into a nice December night. I love the patterned paper, also. The second card is beautiful with the new Adore Him die. I love sparkle glitter and anyone that fussy cuts is a hero. The beautiful ornament die and sentiment along with the jewels really adds to the depth of the card.

Dawn said...

Cathy.... FABulous samples! Your window scene is pure genius!!!

Peggy said...

Wow the thought process used in the first card is so creative. I love that card. Of course both are beautiful, the first on I love.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Peggy said...

Wow your first card is amazing. There was quite a thought process there. I love both your cards but that first one is just by far my favorite.
