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 the ODBD August 2017 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs August 2017 Release!  This month we are all about sports.  No matter what sport you are a fan of, we have the perfect stamp set and coordinating die just for you.  And, did I mention that these sets are great for creating those often difficult masculine cards you might need.  That's right...hop along with us today and get ready for some awesome, sporty inspiration!

Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until August 2, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers' Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on August 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

My first sample is for the Baseball fan in your family.

Creative Nugget:  The baseball image from the Baseball Stamp/Die Duo was stamped randomly all over the background panel cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die and colored with Copic Markers.  Paper from the Old Glory Paper Pad was cut with a Pierced Square Die, mounted on red paper from the same collection and stitched to the card.  Pierced Square bases were added.  One sentiment was cut with a Pierced Square and the other cut and matted with a Pennant Flag die cut and a Double Stitched Pennant Flag die cut.  Finally, an extra baseball was cut with the coordinating die and popped onto the card with foam tape.

My second sample uses the Golf Stamp/Die Duo.

Creative Nugget:  My Golf card is a Latch Fold Card.  After cutting and scoring the base of the card, paper from the Old Glory Paper Pad was mounted to each of the panels.  The green hills on the front of the card were cut from papers from the Birthday Brights Collection using a Leafy Edged Border Die and the Grass Hill Die and stitched to the card.  The hole on the green was cut using a Pierced Oval Die and a Circle Die.  A Pennant Flag Die, a Double Stitched Pennant Flag Die, and the handle die from the Bountiful Basket Set were used to make the flag.  The golf club was paper pieced using metallic silver card stock for part of the club.  The latch for the card was made with the golf ball from one of the sentiments in the Golf Stamp/Die Duo. Another sentiment was stamped on the inside of the card.

My third card of encouragement was made with the Teamwork and All-Star Jersey stamp sets and the coordinating Sports Jerseys Dies.

Creative Nugget: Papers from the Patriotic Collection and the Old Glory Paper Pad were cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die and mounted to the card front.  All of the other elements were made from the same paper collections.  The All-Star Jersey was stamped right on the striped paper.  Some of the red and blue paper was covered with VersaMark Ink and embossed with glittery embossing powder.  This paper and the Sparkling Stars Dies were used to cut all of the stars.  The Notebook Paper Stamp/Die Duo was used to make the panel on which the sentiment from the Teamwork set was stamped.  Other dies used include the Clipboard Dies and Sports Jerseys Dies.
