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 October 2018 Release

Hello, friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs October 2018 Release.  It's not too early to begin thinking about all of those Christmas cards you will need for the upcoming Christmas season.  This month's ODBD release is filled with wonderful stamps sets and dies perfect for your Christmas crafting!

My first sample was made with the new Great Joy Stamp/Die Duo, the Diorama with Layers Dies, and the Bethlehem Dies

Creative Nugget:  The Diorama Dies were cut from card stock and the Diorama Layers Dies were cut from papers from the Christmas Card Collection 2016.   The back panel of the diorama was splattered with acrylic paint and rays were sponged with white ink.  One of the Splendorous Stars Dies was used to cut a star for the night sky.  The wise men from the Great Joy Stamp/Die Duo were colored with Copic Markers and cut with the coordinating die.  The divider panels inside the diorama were layered with cuts made with the Bethlehem Dies.  The sentiment was cut with a Pennant Flag Die and added to the top of the diorama.

My second samples made with the new Christmas Greetings Stamp/Die Duo.

Creative Nugget:  Layers of papers from the Christmas Collection 2015 and Christmas Coordinating 2015 Paper Pads were cut with Pierced Rectangle, Double Stitched Rectangle, and Lavish Layers Dies.  The vintage Christmas light and pine bough from the Christmas Greetings Stamp/Die Duo were stamped on the lavish layers panel and colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment was gold embossed and attached to the bottom of the card.  A metallic gold bow was added to the pine bough to finish the card.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by...hope you were inspired to start those Christmas cards!
