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 ODBD May 2014 Release

Hello friends!
The beginning of May means another fabulous release by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I'm ready to say good-bye to April showers and welcome May flowers! This release, filled with Morning Glories and Angel Wings, will help to do just that!

Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store to be used toward the purchase of ODBD stamps.  You have until May 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on May 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Here are my samples for this wonderful release:

Creative Nugget:  The beautiful Heart & Soul designer paper was mounted to a Smokey Shadow card base, and four of the Decorative Corners Dies were stitched together on Smokey Shadow card stock to form the background for the sentiment.   The sentiment, from the Key to Heaven stamp set, was embossed with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder onto the Vintage Label Die.  The Ornate Hearts Dies were aded to the label and to the ribbon. The keys from the Angel Wings die set were cut six times…three were glued together for each key... then embossed with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder and tied to the heart to finish the card.

Creative Nugget:  The Stair Step card base was made with Pure Luxury card stock.  Gelatos were scribbled onto a white panel and blended with a watercolor brush to make the sky on the back panel.  Clouds were added to the sky using my finger and some Gesso.  The Quatrefoil Pattern Die was used to form a kind of trellis for the middle step.  The sentiment from the Holy Angels stamp set was stamped on the Vintage Flourish Pattern Die, Angel Wings were attached, and mounted to the trellis.  As an afterthought, a Wink of Stella marker was used to give the Angel Wings a bit of shimmer.  The Morning Glories from the Glory stamp set were colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut and added to the Fence Die for the bottom step.  A bow and one of the Morning Glories were added to finish the card.
