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)

A Look Back at ODBD Stellar November Release

Welcome, my friends!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs November 2014 Release.  The stamps and dies released this month are perfect for creating Christmas cards as well as cards of encouragement throughout the year!  Here is a starry project I created using several of the fun new products released this month and an old favorite:  

Another view:

Creative Nugget:  THIS Tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was used to help with the creation of the base for my starry pop up box. Coordinating papers were stitched to True Black mats for each of the box panels.  Then the fun of filling the box began.  All of the stars were cut with the Sparkling Stars Dies…LOVE these!  Some of the dies were nested inside each other to create star frames. Others were clear embossed using the His Birth stamp set and dye inks to match the DP.  I inked up the stamp first in VersaMark ink, then added the dye ink before stamping onto the Fine Linen card stock.  This enabled the ink to stay wet long enough to add the clear embossing powder.  The smaller stars were stamped with VersaMark on colored card stock and embossed with clear sparkle embossing glitter.  The sentiment from the Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossed on the large star on the back panel.  The sentiment on the front flap is from the Snowflake Stars stamp set and it is mounted to a Quatrefoil Design die cut.  The tiny stars were made by dry embossing a black piece of craft metal and wiping acetone over the raised surfaces to let the silver backing show through.  The dies cut through the craft metal with no problem.  Each star was adhered to a strip of acetate and attached to the box.  Seam binding, metallic thread, and rhinestones were added to finish the box.

Here are the products available at the
