A Look Back at ODBD July Release


It's time to take a look back at the July release at ODBD!  Hopefully, you didn't miss the fun new pennant stamps and dies that made their debut on July 1st!  Here's a creation that highlights the versatile Pennant Alphabet Solid stamp set and Pennant Dies.


I love the variety of banner die sizes and thought it would be fun to feature a summertime banner using papers from ODBD Blooming Garden Collection.  The bees - from the ODBD Zinnia stamp set - were die cut, stamped and colored with Copic marker Y19 and the wings were highlighted with a Wink of Stella clear shimmer brush pen.  I discovered I could punch the pennant alphabet with a 3/8" circle punch (SU) which required some minor touch up on the edges using a Copic black marker. The possibilities for sentiments are ENDLESS with this alphabet set!

I often try to "think outside the box" with my dies...to see if I can make them more versatile and decided to turn the large pennant die into some Christmas trees.  I covered each one with washi tape and freehand cut some "trunks" from brown cardstock. The sentiment is from ODBD Peace and Joy stamp set.  The layered dies behind the trees are ODBD Vintage Label dies.



Be sure and check out the rest of the designers' blogs for more pennant inspiration!

These are wonderful! Love your Happy bee card. The colors & banners are super. And your Christmas card is fabulous. Is the greeting from a retired set? Don't think I've ever seen it.
