Look Back at Our Daily Bread July Release

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs July Release and here are the projects I created. This first piece measures 8 x 10 inches and may be inserted into a frame with the glass removed, a shadow box or used as a scrapbook page. We often have a family reunion in July and that got me to thinking about making a project which could showcase a photo.

If you like this card base, check out the additional card packs that are available too! There are all sorts of shapes available! when I was a kid, I had a purple bike and this reminds me of that bike.  I added some pink on the bike to brighten the scene a bit. Besides, what gal can resist pink and purple?  I love, love, love the banner over the bike. It just screams summer!

Blushing Rose Pocket Card

 I like the way this sweet little card turned out! It's a vintage, girly, romantic card all in one! I used some of the new Our Daily Bread Designs products and I'm just lovin' them! The Blushing Rose Collection of paper is so yummy and if I had the time, I would make a mini album out of it!! For now, that's a project for the back burner. I started with kraft paper as the base and then added the paper and a border from the ODBD Beautiful Borders Die. I made a banner with the ODBD Pennant Swag Alphabet stamp set and  attached it to green and white bakers twine. I then added pearls. I cut out the roses from the paper stack and popped them up with dimensional foam. I cut leaves using the paper stack and the ODBD Fancy Foliage Dies.
For the pull out, I made a tab using the ODBD Bautiful Borders dies and layered the blushing Rose paper by using the ODBD Vintage Labels die along with the ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies. What a sweet little card! Thanks for stopping by!

ODBD Vintage Red, White and Blue

Today I have a red, white and blue card that is reminiscent of  the Victorian era. It would make a wonderful invitation for a party or even a family reunion! It is made entirely from Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and Dies and it's so easy to make! Since it's red, white and blue, I'll be linking it to the ODBD blog for the Shining Light Challenge 209.
I started with a red card base and then made a blue mat for the Vintage Flourish Pattern Die. I cut the die using glossy white paper and then made a  red center mat with the Vintage Labels Die. I assembled the ribbon by stamping with the Pennants stamp set and popping the Fourth of July sentiment off the page with dimensional dots. Next came the layers using the Vintage Labels Die and Antique Labels and Border Die. I added a red edge with a marker and the white line with a gel pen. For the banner, I used dimensional dots to attach it to the card. Next came a bit of red twine to help hide the dimensional dots across the top of the banner and two small bows at each end finishes it off.
Here are the items from ODBD that I used on this card:

Get Well Daisy Easel Card

 Hello crafty friends! I hope everyone had a fun and blessed Fourth of July weekend and maybe some of you were able to spend a little time in your craft rooms! I have been working away using some of the July release from Our Daily Bread Designs. This five by five inch card uses the new Pennant Alphabet stamp set and matching Pennants Die set.
As you can see from this photo, the rest of the sentiment is on the inside of the easel card and keeps the card propped up! I took the daisy paper from the blooming garden collection, Fancy Foliage Dies along with the Asters and Leaves Dies to complete the project. I added a bit of small bling between the letters on the pennants and called it a day!

Cherry Blossom Thank You

I needed a few thank you cards to send out after my Mother-in-law's Memorial Service. I decided to make use of the July release at Our Daily Bread Designs and for good measure, I incorporated sketch challenge 495 at Splitcoaststampers. I think these are simple in design yet still very appealing to the eye. It really hard to go wrong when working with the new Blushing Rose Collection of paper from ODBD. Isn't it just yummy? I also wanted to point out the bow on the left side. I made that with the new Patriotic Pennants stamp set. It's amazing how versatile these new pennant sets can be!
 I hope you have enjoyed the first peek of my use of the ODBD July release. Tune in tomorrow for another project made with the July release!

My Big News at Our Daily Bread Designs

                                                             Click Logo for Design Team

Hi friends, I wanted to share some news with you today! As you already know, I just finished up as a customer guest designer at Our Daily Bread Designs for the month of June. It was great fun and I enjoyed the experience! I was happily surprised to receive an invitation to join them as a Design Team member. You could have knocked me over with a feather that day! Go ahead and click the logo to see the design team. Can you believe that I am there? You could still knock me over with a feather!
For quite some time, I have been wondering if I should continue to papercraft or try to serve God in some other manner. Our scrapbooking group at church fizzled out after I suggested we use our talent to help other people. The group was interested in working on their own projects and not work on anything as a group. Many months have passed since then and I continued to papercraft. My cards tend to be faith based and I often stamp scripture on the inside of them. I decided that I would participate in more papercraft challenges when the new year rolled around and what better place than at ODBD and Splitcoaststampers?  When ODBD posted about having some guest designers on the blog a few months back, I threw my hat into the ring. Voila, here I am today sharing some news that has also been an answer to prayer. I have experienced several affirmations in the last few months which have pointed me in the direction of staying with my much loved papercrafts! I look forward to creating many projects in the future that may inspire others to pick up their faith based stamps and bless someone else! Thanks for stopping by today and visiting with me!

Window of Nature

Welcome back to the last week of guest designing at Our Daily Bread Designs!  I've had great fun playing with their wonderful stamps, dies and papers!  I have several more ideas sketched out for other ODBD projects and I hope to implement those in the near future. I have more ideas than time at the moment!  My new puppy takes up a lot of my time as I teach and train him how to be a great addition to the family.

My design today has been kicking around in my head for the last several months. It came to me after I did the Pop Up Garden Card back in March. I have just expounded on the idea of being able the change out the scene according to the season or my particular mood. I have used the window die and made a box that attaches to the back of the die cut. This box houses all of the stamped scenes.

I then added flowers to dress things up a bit and added the sentiment from the Scripture Collection 3 stamp set. You can see that I cut apart the smallest die cut from the Vintage Flourish Pattern die set as a decorative element to the sentiment. The center rose is one I made from ribbon and the white flowers are all made of clay. I found them in the bridal section of my craft store. The smaller ribbon roses came from a craft store and have been in my stash for many years. Some of the leaves are silk and came with the clay flowers and some of them are paper. I made these with the Fancy Foliage Dies.

 This scene was very easy. I wanted to show you a simple way to color on glossy card stock with water based markers. No fancy sponging of ink here but I did layer on colors for the sky and the light. You can see that my pop up box is smaller for this project. It's 3/4" high x 4 1/2" wide x 3" deep.  I used a piece of designer paper from the Christian Faith Collection to decorate the box. The lavender paper has some yellow in it and pairs nicely with the yellow flowers and yellow in each stamped image. These pictures don't really pick that up but in real life, it goes well together.
In this photo you can see that I have mounted my images two different ways. The pond scene is mounted on 80# black card stock and I left the bottom open to write a message or sentiment. The lightouse image is mounted on black card also but I covered the entire card with the image. The ODBD stamp sets used for the main images are....
Keep My Lamp Burning
Pond Single
The Mighty Sea
Adding an image of Garden Path would be a great addition to this trio.

I can see giving this as part of a house warming gift, to someone in a nursing home/hospital or just to decorate a bookcase. I think a beach themed Pop Up card would be nice. It could be decorated with tiny shells and sea glass instead of flowers. Stamped images from the Pond, Keep Climbing and Quiet Waters would look great decorated with twigs, moss and woodland flowers. How about using Garden Path, Bicycle and Butterfly Path for a garden themed card? There are all sorts of things you could do with this idea and change the theme around.
I hope this sparks your creativity! If you make one of these, let me know. I would love to see what you come up with!  I know that you may have questions about how this was made so I will add a video and explain a few things in my next post. Until then, have a great day!
