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 January 2017 Release

Hello friends!  Happy New Year…and welcome to the first new Our Daily Bread Designs Release for 2017!  The January Release includes pretty whimsical flowers, two new Bible Journaling sets that are also perfect for creating cards and bookmarks, seven fabulous die sets, and two beautiful new paper pads.  The samples created by the Bread Stick designers are beautiful and are sure to provide plenty of 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 January 2, 2017 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 January 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


My first sample was made using the new A Happy Hello stamp set and some of the beautiful Plum Pizzazz Papers.


Creative Nugget:  Plum Pizzazz Papers were used to line the panels of the Tri-Shutter 2 card base.  The "Wrinkle-Free Distress Technique" was used to add color to some mixed media paper. The whimsical flower image from the A Happy Hello stamp set was randomly stamped using Archival ink and these pieces were cut to fit the front and back panels.  The sentiment on the front was embossed on a Plum Pizzazz paper and cut with the Pennant Flags and Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.  The Fancy Fritillary Die was used to cut butterflies for the front and back panels and pearls were added.  

The Art Deco Border was cut in half lengthwise and used for the top and bottom panels.  An additional sentiment from the A Happy Hello set was embossed and cut and framed with Oval, Pierced Oval, and Layered Lacey Oval Dies.  A narrow silk ribbon tied around the card keeps it closed.

My second sample is a Bible Journal page made with one of the new Bible Journaling stamp sets, His Timing.

Creative Nugget:  The Bible page from Ecclesiastes was prepped with two coats of clear gesso.  The clock from the Time stamp set was clear embossed twice.  Neocolor 2 crayons were used to watercolor the page and distress inks were added to age the page.  The clock was then stamped several more times with distress ink.  The His Timing image was stamped with Jet Black Archival ink and watercolored with the Neocolor 2 crayons.  A few splatters were added to finish the page.

Here are the fabulous new products being released by
