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 May 2016 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs May 2016 Release!  It's tea time at Our Daily Bread Designs this month.  The stamp sets and dies in the new release are gorgeous and perfect for creating cards with a vintage look.  Grab a cup of tea and sit a while as you hop along to see all the beautiful creations made by the design team!

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 May 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 May 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


My first sample was made using the My Soul Thirsts stamp set and several of the new dies.


Creative Nugget:  The card fold was made by cutting 2" down from the top and 2" off the bottom, discarding the middle section.  The panels were lined with papers from the Beautiful Boho Collection.   Beautiful Border die cuts were added to the top and bottom sections.  The mug from My Soul Thirsts was colored with Copic Markers and cut with one of the new Pierced Rectangle Dies. This panel holds the top and the bottom sections together.  The inside of the card was embossed with the Majestic Medallion Die and the sentiment was cut with a Pierced Oval Die and matted with an Oval die cut  Pretty Posies and Lovely Leaves dies were used to make the floral embellishment.  Some silk ribbon  was added to finish the card.

My second card was made with the beautiful new Good Day stamp set.

Creative Nugget:    I saw this Triple Panel Standing Card fold on Pinterest, but no directions...so came up with my own version. The 11" x 5 1/2" card base was scored at 2 3/4", 4 1/8", 6 7/8", and 8 1/4".  Each of the panels were lined with papers from the Cozy Quilt Collection.  The Good Day hat image was colored with Copic Markers, cut with the Pierced Oval Die and layered onto an Oval, Pierced Rectangles, Filigree Frames, Rectangles, and an embossed and stitched Majestic Medallion panel which was adhered to the center of the card.  Pierced Circle and Circle Dies were used to cut and mat the sentiments and Pretty Posies, Bitty Blossoms, and Fancy Foliage die cuts were used to embellish the other two panels.  Prills were added to the centers of the flowers and little silk bows added to finish the card.  The card folds into a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square.

The first card is very pretty. Love the layout. I like that you can color the cup with different colors since it has the diagonal line with the hearts. Very nice.

The second card is awesome. I would love to make this and send it to a friend. The sentiments are perfect. I'd like to get a card from a friend like this, too. Great job.
