ODBD Anniversary Release



Happy 6th anniversary to ODBD!  Kelley is celebrating with a special release featuring scripture verses, quotes, and sentiments suggested by the design team members.  To see what all the designers have created, head on over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and hop along!  Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs to receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD stamps. ONE lucky commenter will be randomly chosen to win the 2014 Anniversary Bundle!  You have until March 18, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments! The winners will be posted on the ODBD blog on March 19th, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

 
My first card features one of five quotes in the Quote Collection 4 stamp set.  This one - by Corrie ten Boom - reminds us we can feel a peace and calmness by looking to God.  This would make a great encouragement card for someone! (Click on the set photo to see it enlarged)



I used three different Spellbinders' dies: Spiral Blossom One, Oval Nestabilities and Fancy Tags.  The leaves are from ODBD Fancy Foliage die set.  The quote was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink then embossed with clear embossing powder.  Some jute twine and a hummingbird charm topped it off!


For my second card, I started with a background of a gelli plate print I created using aqua and gold acrylic paints and a fern stencil.  Since the quote made reference to "heart", I knew I wanted to pair it with ODBD Ornate Hearts dies.  I gold embossed the quote to bring out the hints of gold in the background, then couldn't stop there...had to add gold sequins, gold sticker leaves and a gold die-cut flourish - from ODBD Fancy Foliage die set.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Here's a quick link to head you over to the ODBD blog or you can click on the links below to see what the rest of the designers have created...
