ODBD Anniversary Blog Hop


Happy 7th anniversary to Our Daily Bread Designs! 

To celebrate, the breadsticks (designers) are having a blog hop to bring you projects with a couple of special anniversary stamp sets - God Verses and God Quotes.  To start at the beginning, head over to the ODBD blog so you don't miss any of the inspirational creations or you can click on the design team blog links at the end of my post.  
  PRIZE INFORMATION
 Seven randomly selected winners will each receive one of the new ODBD anniversary stamp sets just for commenting on the design team cards!  You have until March 19, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the designers' blogs for a chance to win!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD blog on March 20th, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

 

I went with a monochromatic look and layered the Daisy Chain background die over a spring shade of green.  My most used die from ODBD is the Fancy Foliage die set.  I especially love the leafy scroll die that I cut in half and looped around the sentiment. 

Handy Tip: For any intricate dies, I layer a cutting plate, dryer sheet, cardstock, wax paper, die, cutting plate before running it through the Big Shot.  The Spellbinders Tool-N-One also makes it a cinch to clear out all the tiny paper pieces...and...it's available in the ODBD store!

I couldn't stop with just one card.  I switched gears from bold and bright to the pastels of the beautiful new papers from the Shabby Rose Collection just released this month.  


The sentiment is framed using Spellbinders' Labels Twenty Three Nestabilities. The flowers and leaves (from ODBD Cherry Blossom set) were colored with Copics and  fussy cut. I used a clear Wink of Stella shimmer marker to add some subtle sparkle to the blossoms.
