Welcome to the ODBD August 2016 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs August 2016 Release and how tweet it is!  The Bread Basket designers been using the new bird stamps and border dies to create beautiful cards for your inspiration. 

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


My first sample was made using the Birdhouse stamp set stamp set.


Creative Nugget:  The image from the Birdhouse stamp set was fun to color with Copic Markers.  Prills were added to the centers of the blossoms and an extra blossom was stamped, fussy cut, and popped onto the card.  Each of the layers were cut with the Square Dies and the new Pierced Squares.  Paper from the Boho Bolds Collection was stitched to two of the panel layers.  Love the new Trellis Strip Die which was used to cut borders which were woven over and under the second layer. The Birdhouse image was framed with a Filigree Frame die cut as well as the embossed sentiment.

My second card was made with the new Thanks For Everything Stamp/Die Duo.
Creative Nugget:   Papers from my favorite Shabby Rose Collection were cut with Pierced Rectangles Dies and a Pierced Square Die.  The white circle was cut with a Pierced Circle Die.   The new Flower Lattice Die was used to cut a border.  The embossed and stacked die cut sentiment was made with the new Thanks For Everything Stamp/Die Duo.  The teapot and roses are from the Tea Time stamp set and were colored with Copic Markers, cut with the Teapot & Roses Dies, and mounted to the card with foam tape.  Wink of Stella was added for some shimmer. Pearls and a heated bow were added to finish the card.

Gah - your sewing/stitching always blows me away. It adds so much to your cards... not to mention your coloring and knack of layering patterned paper.

The card using the borders is unique, something I would not have thought of. The tea pot reminds me of a Victorian Tea Party, so elegant and charming. Great cards.
