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)

Taking a Look Back at the ODBD September 2014 Release

Welcome, my friends!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs September 2014 Release.  Here is the project I created using some of the new products released this month.  

Creative Nugget:  Have you ever finished a card just to decide you didn't like it and rip it all apart?  The gray background on my first attempt at this card was just too dark for my liking so apart it came.  Several Doily Die cuts were embedded onto a piece of Vintage Cream card stock to create the background for this second attempt.  A strip of Soulful Stitches paper was stitched to the doily background.  A small quilt made of Soulful Stitches scraps stitched together on Smokey Shadow card stock and mounted to Sage Shadow was added next.  Then came the Beautiful Border Die cut from Groovy Guava card stock.  The knitting basket and yarn from the Hand Knit stamp set were colored with Copic Markers and cut with the matching Knitting Basket and Yarn Dies.  A hand cut banner was stamped with the sentiment from the Birthday Doily stamp set.  Two little buttons from the Doily Die were covered with Glossy Accents and pearls attached to finish the card.  There…that's much better!

Here is another card made by layering the Doily Dies together in neutral tones and mounting them on a panel embossed with the Daisy Chain Background Die.  I love how delicate this Doily Die is and know I will be reaching for it time and time again!

Here are the products from the ODBD Store that were used to create these samples:

My first card sample will also be submitted for the following challenges for this week:

Oooooh gorgeous X 2 Cathy!!! Love the stitched quilt on the top one and you've inspired me to try leaving the threads loose for an added bit of interest and texture!!! Also love the added texture of the embossing! LOVE the neutral shades of the second card as well.... the layered doily is so pretty and yes, I agree.... this doily die will be reached for over and over!

Both of your creations are stunning Cathy!! I just love the quilt design with the embossing and sewing as well as your design on the first and the second is so elegant in the monochromatic colors, all the texture with the embossing and layering and your use of the doily. Gorgeous work my friend!
