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 July 2017 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs July 2017 Release!  Please join us as we take a voyage to tropical isles.  The release this month is full of beautiful tropical images and dies.  You won't want to miss what the Bread Stick Designers have created for your inspiration...in fact, I'm sure you will want to catch the nearest cruise and take off for the Pacific!


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


My first sample was made using the adorable new Ticked Pink stamp set and papers from the Boho Bolds Paper Pad.


Creative Nugget:  Papers from the Boho Bolds Paper Pad were stitched to black card stock for the background.  Flamingos from the Tickled Pink stamp set were randomly stamped in pink ink on the second panel and then embossed with the Boho Backgrounds Die.  The flamingos on the circle panel were colored with Copic Markers and the sentiment was stamped on a vellum banner.  The ODBD Custom dies used to cut the different layers include the Pierced Rectangles, Pierced Circles, Circles, and Pennant Flags.  Black pearls and Bakers Twine were added to finish the card. 

My second sample uses the beautiful new Bon Voyage stamp set.

Creative Nugget:  The background scene was masked and sponged with Distress Inks before stamping the island silhouettes from the Bon Voyage set with Jet Black Archival ink. Paper from the Boho Bolds Paper Pad was used to mat the sponged panel.  An aperture was cut from the white panel and popped up with foam tape.  The new Frangipani Dies and Fern Dies were used to make the flowers framing the image.  Part of the sentiment was white embossed and part was stamped with black ink directly on the card front.  Other ODBD Custom Dies used include the Pierced Rectangles, Double Stitched Circles, and Circles.  Pearls were added to the centers of the frangipani flowers and to accent the image.

WOW! Both cards are beautiful. Really like the color used with the flamingos and the ef really added texture to the card. My favorite is the card using the Bon Voyage stamp set though. The sunset colors are perfect and really makes me wish I was sitting on a island beach somewhere.
