ODBD February Release Time!

It's release day at Our Daily Bread Designs and I'm excited to share some cards using some of their new stamps and dies! I can never get too many hearts and you will LOVE these stamps and nesting heart dies that can be mixed and matched in so many ways!  I fell in love with this filigree heart from the Bless Your Heart set as soon as I saw it...


Check out the fabulous new Beautiful Borders dies! One of the borders is behind the heart on the card above and here is another Valentine that features a second border (there are three in all)...



I created a mini freestyle collage tag using 3 of the mini heart dies from the wonderful nesting collection - Ornate Hearts Dies.  LOVE the embossed dots on the smallest heart...(sigh)...it's the little things that make me happy - lol!  I stamped the sentiment from the Love You Bunches set in Versafine Onyx black then clear embossed it to give it more definition. 

No...I'm not done yet with samples!  Here is another card using 3 different die cut heart layers over a background panel of cardstock that I covered with washi tape.  Aqua and red make such a great color combo IMO!



Another fave stamp set in this release is the mini set - Be Mine - that has nothing but sentiments!  Wee bitty sentiments!  Perfect to stamp on a tiny tag or in a tiny space on your creation! So fun and so versatile.

For even more inspiration, you'll want to check out what the other designers have posted on their blogs.

WOW! These stamps and dies are so versatile! I LOVE the look of the metallic embossing on that first card. Gorgeous use of that stamp! And you're right. Those die cut borders are WONDERFUL! I've been wanting a nice set of lacy die-cut hearts. Nice touch to add the crocheted flower - really sets lacy heart nicely.
