April Release Day at ODBD



Another month has rolled around and that means a new release is happening at Our Daily Bread Designs!  Details are at the end of my post on how you can possibly win some new ODBD products! 


In my first project, I'm highlighting the Layered Lacey Squares dies, the Umbrella die and the Shower of Blessings stamp set.  I had a bridal shower in mind with my design and even created a party favor to coordinate with the card.  The designer papers are from ODBD's new Shabby Rose Collection - released in March.
 
I had a lot of fun playing with the new Clouds and Raindrops dies!
I started by using the edge of thin copy paper to mask off the rays and sponged along the edge using Daffodil Delight ink. The sun was sponged after die cut with a SB Circle Nestabilities die.  I then created the shaker cloud before adhering 2 more clouds with foam tape.  The sentiment is another stamp from the new Shower of Blessings set.




PRIZE INFORMATION...
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 April 2, 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 April 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

WOW! what an idea to put the colored eggs in the umbrella.They go so well with the other parts of the card and its sentiment and colors. Perfect for Spring.

the second card will sure brighten up a person who might be under the weather. It's full of sunshine and the colors of spring that is coming.

Oh how gorgeous. I love them both and they are at each side of the spectrum. One so formal and the other fun. It is so nice to see such variety. I love those sun rays....Thanks for sharing.

Sarosa said...

I really love the colors, the pastel pink with the olive green ... not the usual shades put together. And I prefer the upside down umbrella "catching" the blessings, rather than repelling them!

Grace said...

hugs,
Grace
