ODBD New Release Day!

The time is here for Our Daily Bread Designs' June release!  This is an awesome release, so hold on to your hats and come along for the ride as you check out all the design team's creations (links at bottom of my post)!  I'm excited to share a couple of projects using the wonderful new Cherry Blossom stamp set and the Asters and Leaves die set!  There is also a new paper pack that is my favorite one yet - the Blushing Rose Collection!


The cherry blossom branch was stamped twice, colored with Copics, then fussy cut and popped with foam dots.  I also added Wink of Stella's clear shimmer brush pen to the petals and a tiny touch of yellow Stickles to the stamens.  Two of the blossoms were layered to add some depth to the image.  I used pink chalk to highlight the oval die cut while it was still in the die, but it's not showing up very well in the photo.



It's been a long time since I created a flower pot card that has a pull-out section for the sentiment. 
The Asters and Leaves die set worked perfectly for this! For the centers, I stippled some dots using a Tombow marker (#946).  Here's a photo of the pull-out piece.....

I used a Beautiful Borders die (from an earlier release) by ODBD to add a decorative tone on tone border to the flower pot.  The ribbon holds the folded pocket card together.  This was such a fun project to create!

Here are the links to the breadsticks' blogs...check them out!
