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 September 2017 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs September 2017 Release!  Red, white, and blue and everything patriotic is the focus this month.  The new stamps, dies, and papers are perfect for creating those patriotic cards you need for many special occasions throughout the year or just to let those serving in our military know that you appreciate their service.  There are also two new dies to make it easy to create fancy fold cards. Get ready to see some amazing patriotic projects created by the Breadstick Designers. 

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 September 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 September 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!


My first sample was made with the new USA Flag Die.


Creative Nugget:  The USA Flag Die was used to cut flag pieces from white card stock and papers from the Stars and Stripes Paper Collection.  The pieces were adhered to a white panel to form the flag.  This was mounted to another paper from the Stars and Stripes Collection and then to a card base.  A sentiment from the Justice For All stamp set was red embossed on a panel cut with a Double Stitched Rectangle Die and mounted to a frame cut with one of the Lavish Layers Dies.  Sparkling Stars Dies were used to make starry accents to finish the card.

My second sample uses the Defining Force stamp.

Creative Nugget:  Two papers from the Stars and Stripes Collection were cut with the largest Pierced Rectangle Die, cut to fit a card front, and stitched together.  The wonderful Defining Force sentiment was embossed in red and blue.  Highlights were cut from the red sentiment and popped on top of the blue.  The panel was cut with another Pierced Rectangle Die and mounted to another panel cut with a Double Stitched Rectangle Die.  The Sparkling Stars Dies were used to make the star accent.  A bow was tied through the star to finish the card.

My third and final sample was made with the new Double Display Card Die and the Double Display Layers Dies.

Creative Nugget:  The Double Display Layers Dies now make this fancy fold a snap to create.  After cutting and folding the card base, layers were cut from papers from the Stars and Stripes Collection.  "God Bless" was cut using the Alphabet Dies....these are perfect for customizing a greeting or sentiment....and mounted to a panel cut with  an Ovals Die and mounted to a Layered Lacey Ovals die cut.  See the tiny little stars? They were left over from the Flag Die used on the first card at the top of this post.  The larger stars were cut with Sparkling Stars Dies. Balloons and Streamers Dies were used to make the balloon accent.

The USA stamp single was used on the inside of the card.  The stamp was embossed in black, red, and blue.  The letters were fussy cut and paper pieced to create the sentiment.
