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 September 2016 Release!

Hello friends!  Rise & Shine and Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs September 2016 Release!  Did I just write September?  With Autumn on the way, ODBD is releasing two wonderful fall stamp sets, and to get you going on those chilly mornings...coffee.  You will love this month's new stamp sets and dies…wait until you see what the Bread Sticks have designed 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 September 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 September 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


My first sample was made using the new Rise And Shine stamp set stamp set and Beverage Cup Dies.


Creative Nugget:  Papers from the Cozy Quilt Collection were used for the panels on this card while Pierced Rectangles Dies and Double Stitched Rectangles Dies were used to cut them.  The Art Deco Die was used to border the horizontal panel, and the Filigree Frame Die was modified and used to frame the top layer.  The sentiment from the Rise and Shine stamp set was embossed on a label and mat cut with the Layered Lacy Ovals Die and an Ovals Die.  The new Beverage Cup Dies were used to make the lemonade and milk shake..SWEET!  Seam binding, Glossy Accents, and Wink of Stella were added to finish the card. 

My shaker card was made with the new I Love Coffee stamp set and Beverage Cup Dies.

Creative Nugget:  The coffee bean from one of the sentiments in the Rise and Shine stamp set was colored with Tombow Markers and stamped repeatedly on the background.  The main panel is watercolored and splattered with ink from a Tombow Marker.  All of the layers are cut with Pierced Rectangles Dies.  The coffee rings were made by pressing the bottom of a plastic container into watered down ink and stamping it onto the card.  One of the sentiments from the I Love Coffee stamp set was very lightly stamped over the background and one of the sentiments was embossed on the card front.  The opening for the shaker was cut with a Circles Die and the matt, a Pierced Circles Die. Paper from the Ephemera Essentials Collection was used for the back of the shaker and the band on the Beverage Cup.  The best part are the real coffee beans inside the shaker…mmmm!  Although I do not like coffee, I do love the smell of it and this card smells heavenly! A little seam binding and several pearls were added.

Love how you used the Ephemera papers! And those beverages on your first card look delicious!

Hi Cathymac,
Both your cards are so creative. I love how colorful your first card is. Fabulous design work with the ODBD papers...and your second card is so special. I love how you created your own stamped paper and the coffee rings was a genious touch. Very creative work in using real coffee beans for the shaker portion of the card. You really went all out on your designs here and I love this new "Coffee" stamp and die set...I just may have to purchase this one. Thank you for sharing your creative talent with all of us.
Blessings,
Diane

These new coffee stamps & dies are so cute! You have created two beauties with them too. I really like the fresh colors on the first one. The shaker card is fabulous! I can almost smell those coffee beans!

Cheryl said...

Wow - you've shown me that I might like these dies! I hadn't paid a lot of attention because I don't do coffee. I hadn't realized the dies really are for a lot of different beverages. Nice summery feel for that first card. And despite not doing coffee, I love the way you did the 2nd card - love the coffee bean shaker - and the coffee rings! Great job!

Shari Czerwinski said...

Love the coffee set and the two very different cards!

I really like your coffee shaker card! All of your creative details with it, from using actual coffee beans in the shaker to the background with the lightly stamped sentiments & coffee cup rings you made! I too, am not a fan of coffee but like the smells of certain kinds. :)

Lovely cards. The crazy quilt papers are so cute. Wonderful sentiments. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Janice M said...

Cathy your cards are GORGEOUS as always! Your so VERY talented.

Denise Ward said...

What a fun idea to use real coffee beans in the shaker card!! :D I'm like you and don't like coffee, but I was raised in a coffee-drinking home. My parents would grind their own beans, so I am well-accustomed to the smell. Your first card is equally creative and pretty. I like the pastel colors used in it as a contrast to the browns in the second card. Both cards are great contributions to the blog hop!

Sherry said...

beautiful! I'm not a coffee drinker but I really like these new sets!

Helen Gullett said...

OH YES! Love your coffee cups!

Dawn said...

What fun, Cathy!! Two great samples and oh-so-clever-you with the coffee beans!! Genius!
