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 April 2018 Release

Good morning, friends and welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs April Release.  The stamps and dies being released are perfect for Mother's Day, Father's Day AND masculine and feminine cards needed throughout the year.  

Let's take care of Mother's Day first.  My first sample uses the new The Greatest Gift Stamp/Die Duo.

Creative Nugget:  Papers from the Shabby Rose Paper Pad were used to create this Mother's Day card.  The panels of paper were cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die and were stitched to a matching piece of card stock.  A Beautiful Border die cut separate the two panels.  A frame was cut with the Large Banners Dies and was backed with a piece of vellum.  The butterflies from The Greatest Gift Stamp/Die Duo were white embossed on the patterned paper and cut with the coordinated dies.  Sentiments were embossed on a Fancy Circle die cut and a Double Stitched Pennant Flag die cut.    Sequins were added to finish the card.

The Timeless Tote, Timeless Tote Layers, and Petite Pocketbook Dies can be used to make accessories to match the card and are just right for tucking away a little gift or gift card.

Now let's take care of the fishermen in the family.  The new Great Catch Stamp/Die Duo is perfect for masculine cards.

Creative Nugget: The Sunburst Background Die was used to cut and emboss a piece of mixed media paper and distress inks were sponged on the panel while it was still in the die.  Distress Oxide inks were used to create the water panel which was cut with a Leafy Edged Border Die.  The Salted Background Technique found HERE gave this panel some texture and a stencil was used to add some wavy shapes to the water.  Copic Markers were used to color the fish from the Great Catch Stamp/Die Duo and the lure was hung with metallic thread.  The sentiment was embossed on a Double Stitched Pennant Flag die cut to finish the card.

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