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 September 2017 Release

Hello friends!  Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread Designs September 2017 Release!  My thoughts and prayers go out to all those in our country suffering loss due to the hurricanes, floods, fires and natural disasters.  These patriotic samples were made to honor those first responders working tirelessly to bring relief to our fellow Americans.

My first sample uses the USA single stamp. 

Creative Nugget:  USA was stamped repeatedly over a Kraft panel and cut with two of the Pierced Rectangle Dies.  Each piece was splattered with white acrylic paint and stitched to white card stock.  An Ornate Heart Die was used to cut the heart which was sponged and popped onto the front of the card.  USA was stamped in black, red, and blue, fussy cut and paper pieced, then added to the heart.  Sparkling Stars were cut from paper from the Stars and Stripes Collection.  The smallest stars were left overs from using the USA Flag Die.

The next sample uses the USA Flag Die and the Remembrance stamp set.

Creative Nugget:  Red, White and Blue card stocks were cut using the USA Flag Die and pieced together to create the flag card front.  The Circle and Pierced Circle Dies were used to cut a metallic gold frame.  Metallic gold and blue card stocks were cut with the Sparkling Stars Dies.  The sentiment from the Remembrance stamp set was gold embossed, cut with a Circle Die and framed with a metallic gold Pierced Circle.  These pieces were put together to resemble a Medal of Honor.  Small blue stars and a gold metallic bow were added to finish the card.

My last sample uses the Defining Force single stamp.

Creative Nugget:  The Defining Force sentiment (**LOVE**) was blue embossed to the upper left part of a white panel cut with the Pierced Rectangle Die.  Two panels were cut from paper from the Stars and Stripes Collection and stitched to blue paper also from the Stars and Stripes Collection.  Sparkling Stars Dies were used to create a star frame which was tied onto the card with jute twine.  The Pennant Row Die was used to cut a banner for the top of the card.
