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)

Welcome to the ODBD March 2016 Release

Hello friends!  It's time for the Our Daily Bread Designs March 2016 Release!  Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing two versatile new stamp sets that can be used all year long and some wonderful dies that can be used with the new stamp sets.

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 March 2, 2016 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 March 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


My first sample was made using the Superstar stamp set and some of the new dies.


Creative Nugget:  The background paper on the front of the card was cut with the Flourished Star Pattern Die.  Double sided paper was used to create the pleated skirt which was stitched onto the bottom of the card.  You can find a tutorial for the pleated skirt HERE under the Tutorials Tab on Splitcoaststampers.  The sentiment from the fun new Superstar stamp set was embossed and sponged on a panel that was cut with the new Double Stitched Square Dies.  The star frame was cut from the Sparkling Stars and new Double Stitched Star Dies.  A few other stars cut with the Sparkling Star Dies were covered with Glossy Accents and scattered on the card.  Twine was dyed and tied across the pleats to finish the card

For my second sample, a door was created on a Double Display Card to complement the new Key to Happiness stamp set.

Creative Nugget:   Rustic papers were impressed with a woodgrain pattern and used to line each of the panels on the Double Display Card.  The door panels were cut with the new Squares and Double Stitched Squares Dies and the previously released Rectangles and Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.   The sentiment from Key to Happiness and the mat were cut with the Circles and Double Stitched Circles Dies.  The new Keys Dies were used to cut all of the keys on the card, some of which were also embossed.  Some of the Liquid Platinum embossing powder was rubbed off prior to heating to give a more rustic look.

The double doors open to reveal the inside of the card.  Keys were hung from key rings on the side panels.  Another sentiment from Key to Happiness was embossed and matted with one of the Layered Lacey Squares.  The Gilded Gate was embossed and adorned with some of the Bitty Blossoms and Lovely Leaves.

Here are the beautiful new products being released by 
Our Daily Bread Designs this month that were used to make these projects…

Your cards present awesomeness of a great crafter. Keep up this great work of art!

Both cards are fabulous, but the work on the double display card is amazing. O bought a pack of these at the store a year ago and every time I take one out I put it back because I realize how much work it is going to be. You have inspired me to get one out again. Thanks also for the link to the pleated skirt.
