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)

Take Another Look at the ODBD August 2016 Mid-Month Release

Hello friends!  Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread Designs August 2016 Mid-Month Release!  We will soon be saying good-bye to sweet summer, but let's just hold onto it for a bit longer.

My first sample was made with the new By the Sea and Rope Background stamp sets.

Creative Nugget:  A "Wrinkle Free Distress panel was lightly stamped with the Rope Background, an embossed sentiment, and the pelican from the By the Sea stamp set.  A window was made using the Circle and Pierced Circle Dies so that The Waves on the Sea sailing image stamped on paper from the By the Shore Collection could be seen.  A bow made with twine was added.  The pelican was stamped again, colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut, and popped onto the card.

My second sample was made using the Sending You Sunshine stamp set.

Creative Nugget:  Layers of papers from the Nautical Collection were cut with Pierced RectanglesPierced Squaresand a Leafy Edged Borders Die…perfect for creating waves, and matted with red card stock.  The sentiment from the Sending You Sunshine stamp set was embossed on one of the papers as well and cut with Pierced Circle and Circle Dies. The sandcastle was colored with Copic Markers, cut with the coordinating Sandcastle Die, and popped onto the card.  Sparkle, hard to see in the photo, was added to the sand with a Wink of Stella Pen.  Jute twine and enamel dots were added to finish the card.

Here are the fabulous new products being released by
