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)

Looking Back at the ODBD April 2016 Release

Welcome, my friends!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs April 2016 Release.   I love stitching on cards so the new quilt themed stamps and dies released this month were a perfect addition to my stamp collection.  The quilt dies make it "sew" easy to make a whole set of note cards for friends and family.  

My sample today uses The Dresden Quilt Stamp, Quilted With Love, and the Log Cabin Quilt Die.

Creative Nugget:  The Dresden Quilt Stamp was white embossed on a piece of Bristol Board Paper, water colored with Kuretake Watercolors, and cut with one of the Square Dies.  The quilt was then matted and layered onto a Log Cabin Quilt die cut that was pieced with papers from the Cozy Quilt Collection and matching card stocks.  Since the sentiment from the Quilted With Love set did not fit on one of the pennants, I cut my own using the Double Stitched Rectangles and the Double Stitched Squares.  The second pennant was cut with the Pennant Dies from a piece of paper from the Cozy Quilt Collection.  The quilts were attached to a card front and stitched to the card base.  The ribbon was hit with the heat tool for a few seconds to give it some curl and a rhinestone sticker was added to finish the card.

Here are the new products from the 
Our Daily Bread Designs Store used to make this card…
…and some old favorites:

Oh, Cathy, this is gorgeous, and I LOVE how you've white embossed the quilt block and then watercolored it. It's stunning! And of course, your cards are always finished to perfection with stitching! Absolutely fabulous! So glad I got the Bundle this month! Hugs!
