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 January 2018 Release

Happy New Year, friends!  2018 is here and so are new stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.  If you like stamping with flowers, and who doesn't, you will love the new stamp/die duos, the new center step card dies and the gorgeous Romantic Roses Paper Pad being released today.  

My first sample uses the new Center Step A2 Card and Layering Dies and the In My Heart Stamp/Die Duo.

Creative Nugget:  The card base was cut with the Center Step A2 Card Die and the panels layered with papers from the beautiful new Romantic Roses Paper Pad cut with the Center Step A2 Layering Dies.  The sentiment was embossed on a panel cut with a Squares Die and mounted to a frame cut with one of the Layered Lacey Squares Dies.  Copic markers were used to color the hydrangeas from the In My Heart Stamp/Die Duo and the coordinating die was used to cut them out before popping them onto the card.  Bitty Borders were added to the sides and bottom. The Small Bow Dies were used to cut the pieces for the paper bow.  Nuvo Crystal Drops and Wink of Stella were added to the hydrangeas for a bit of sparkle to finish the card.

My second card uses the new Call to Me Stamp/Die Duo.

Creative Nugget:  The card front was layered with card stock cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die and the Daisy Chain Background Die.  Distress inks were lightly sponged on the pierced rectangle layer before popping on the daisy chain layer.  The daisies from the Call to Me Stamp Die Duo were randomly stamped on another panel, colored with Copics and stitched to some green card stock.  The sentiment was embossed on a Square cut panel, sponged with Distress inks, and framed with green card stock cut with one of the Layered Lacey Squares Dies.  One of the daisies was cut with the coordinating die and popped up onto the card.  A sheer bow was added to finish the card.

These new products from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store were used to create the cards above:

I love hydrangeas and yours are truly lovely, Cathy! You've done a masterful job of colouring them! All your layers create a lot of visual interest and the subtle shimmer of the Wink of Stella just enhances the overall effect. Thanks for bringing your talents to our gallery at As You See It Challenge.
