Hello Friends!! I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend like I am!!!

Today the design team is kicking off the weekend with some inspiration using the latest releases at Our Daily Bread Designs!!!

Here is my creation using Birthday Doily, Hand Knit, and the Doily die from September's Release as well as the Fancy Foliage die from a prior release.

The Birthday Doily is stamped in pink to create a background.  The sentiment is from Hand Knit, Sponged in pink ink and cut out with a circle die, and layered on the Doily die.  The doily stamp makes such a fun design when randomly stamped!!

The shape of the card uses Labels 28 and Decorative Labels 28 from Spellbinders.

Here are the photos of the sets used:

Hello friends!!  It is a weekend!! Yeah!!  I apologize not for posting like I should each week.  This week I had surgery to remove the filter they put in when I had my blood clot in both lungs.  I am so thankful to God for bringing me another step closer to recovery and for a successful surgery.  I am sore and not doing as much... but recovering.  God is good!!

The creation I am sharing is one I made earlier in the week before my surgery. It has been a while since I have had the opportunity to join a challenge at Splitcoast Stampers so I thought this challenge of Wrap it for Technique Lovers looked like a fun one. I wrapped yarn around a large acrylic block and stamped it in cameo coral, groovy guava, basic grey, and bermuda bay. It makes a fun background.

My image is from Hand Knit , a new release from ODBD, and a sentiment from Sewing . The image is popped on a doily die cut.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Hello Friends an Happy Labor Day to all in the USA!! Welcome to another fun September Release at Our Daily Bread Designs!! 

 The Bread Basket has lots of fun inspiration using the new won't want to miss the opportunity to see all the gorgeous creations by my dt sisters or for a chance to be one of three lucky random winners to receive a $15 gift certificated toward stamps at ODBD.  You have until 9 pm on September 2 to leave a comment on the release posts of the design team to qualify to win.  Winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on September 3.

My first creation is a tri-shutter card that uses the Quilts, Sewing
Stitches and ODBD Soulful Stitches 6x6 Paper Collection from the new release as well as Vintage Labels dies from a previous release.

I had so much fun coloring the quilt to match the design paper but make it just a tad bit brighter so it pops in the front.  I also used a Spellbinders Labels 4 die to frame two of the quotes.  The edges of all the panels are all stitched on.  The fold is using the pre-cut and pre-scored tri-shutter fold available at ODBD.

My second creation uses the Felicity and Sewing stamp sets from this months new release as well as the Pennant Swag, Recipe and Tags (circle for sentiment) and Beautiful Borders Die.

I had so much fun coloring the dress with my copics and fussy cutting it out.  It is mounted on an embossed Decorative Labels 4 and Labels four die from Spellbinders.  To keep with the sewing theme I added some charms and stitched the edges.  The layout uses the current sketch from the ODBD Shining the Light challenge.  

Here is a photo of the inside of the card using the newest Birthday Doily stamp set as well as the new ODBD Doily die released today.

Here are photos of the stamps and dies used on the creations above from today's September release:
