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 December 2017 Release

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs December 2017 Release.  Now that December is here, the countdown to Christmas begins!  There's still time to finish up those Christmas cards and the Our Daily Bread Designs release this month is perfect for those last minute projects as well as for creating gifts and cards for the winter. Get ready to see some beautiful winter and Christmas projects created by the Breadstick Designers using the new products from the release. 

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

My first sample was made with the new Praise the Lord stamp set and the new Card Caddy & Gift Box Dies.

Creative Nugget:  Pieces of mixed media card stock were sponged with Distress Oxide inks and cut with the Card Caddy & Gift Bag Dies with the included inset cut in the front panel.  Gift Bag Handle & Toppers Dies were used to cut paper from the Christmas Collection 2013 and matching green card stock.  A Double Stitched Circle Die was used to cut washers for the handles.  Oval Stitched Rows Dies, an Ovals Die, and a Pennant Flags Die were used to cut and mat the Copic colored pine cross and sentiment from the Praise the Lord stamp set.  The gift bag was assembled and finished off with a few Pine Branches die cuts and a twine bow.

My second sample uses the Noel Ornaments stamp.

Creative Nugget: The Noel Ornaments image was colored with Copic Markers and the panel cut with an Oval Stitched Rows Die. The same die was used to cut two ovals out of red card stock to be used as mats for the focal image since the largest die was used to cut the main image.  The Gift Bag Topper Die was used to cut a border from paper from the Holly Jolly Collection.  The Merry Christmas Border was left in the die and VersaMark ink sponged through the highlights so they could be white embossed.   Double Stitched Rectangle Dies were used to cut the other layers.  The card was assembled, stitched together and finished off with a white bow.
