February Release Time at ODBD!



Can you believe another month has rolled around already?  Well, ready or not...February 1st is here and that means it's release day at Our Daily Bread Designs!  

Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the design team cards!  You have until February 2, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments on the designers' blogs for a chance to win!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD blog on February 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!



I'm shakin' it up in my first card and using the new Happy Birthday dies!  With shaker cards making a comeback in the paper crafting world, I thought I'd go with some clear, white and gold sequins behind the acetate panel.  I continued with the gold theme by using metallic gold cardstock for the letters.  The sweet little balloons were die cut with some coordinating patterned papers.


My next card features the new Miss You stamp set with this
beautiful wildflower silhouette image and 1 of 5 sentiments.  The Queen Ann's Lace reminds me of childhood days when I would cut bouquets of them in neighboring fields and put them into several different jars with colored water and watch the osmosis change them into varying colors!  Ahhh...the good ole days of simple joys!

 
I chose to add the sentiment to a vellum mini tag...also from ODBD's die collection.  I sponged Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Old Olive inks onto white cardstock and masked the sun. 

You will want to check out the other designers' beautiful samples by going to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog...or...you can click on their individual blogs below.
