and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Welcome to the ODBD November 2016 Release

Hello friends!  The countdown to Christmas is on the way at Our Daily Bread Designs.  The November 2016 release includes one Stamp & Die Duo, two stamp sets, three fabulous dies, and a new Christmas paper collection!  The ODBD Designers have made some stunning samples for your Christmas 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 November 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 November 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


My first sample was made using the new Merry & Bright stamp set, the Snow Crystals Dies, and the new Snowflake Season Paper Collection.


Creative Nugget: The new Snowflake Season Paper Collection is so pretty in pink, I had to use a little bit of all of it…stitched to some gray card stock for contrast.  The hanging snowflakes were cut with the new Snowflake Crystals Dies and embossed with clear glitter embossing powder so they really sparkle.  The sentiment from the Merry & Bright stamp set was white embossed on vellum and framed with borders cut with the Ornate Ovals and Ovals Dies.  Little metallic thread bows and gems were added to finish the card.

My second sample was made using the Jingle Bell Time stamp set, the beautiful Snowflake Sky Dies, and the Snowflake Season Paper Collection.

Creative Nugget: The card front was layered with Snowflake Sky die cuts that were sponged with a hint of blue before removing them from the dies. The beautiful bells from the Jingle Bell Time set were colored with Copic Markers, cut with a Circle Die, and matted with a Pierced Circle die cut.  The Doily frame was accented with a few banners cut from Snowflake Season papers and pink card stock.  Gems and silver cording were added to finish the card.

I love love love the jingle bells. You have to understand as a senior they were part of our life growing up. I have jingle bells hanging on my exterior doors so I know if anyone comes in my house. Cards are beautiful. I have not made Christmas cards but you sure make me want to start.
