ODBD Bread Basket

Monday, June 1, 2009

Happy Monday morning to all of you. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was very very busy but very nice as well. My girls and I were away the entire day on Saturday at the zoo. We had a great time but were very exhausted! So many neat things to see!! Sunday was church and then my brother and sister in law were here from Virginia! We had such a terrific visit. I so wish we didn't live so far apart and we could see eachother more often. It is so hard when the family is so spread out! We will be camping together in eachother month so we do have a lot to look forward to. July will be here before you know it! Time flies! I can't believe today is June already!!!

Speaking of June.....Today is the new release of the Our Daily Bread Designs two new sets: Quiet Waters and Ask Seek Knock. I am so excited to share these two gorgeous sets with you! I LOVE Them!! I have made two samples, using one of each to share with you!!

These two cards were made for sheer fun and not for any particular challenge! It was fun to just be creative! The first card uses SU Bella Blue paper and Bordering Blue. The sentiment is framed using a Spellbinders Labels 4 die available at ODBD! This is one of my absolute favorite dies!! The fence was created using a Martha Stewart Punch. The image was stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored. When I saw this Making Memories Key embellishment, I knew it was perfect to go with this stampset! I created a sidewalk using my Cuttlebug Mosaic Embossing Folder. The border along the bottom uses my favorite border punch Fleur De Lis from EK Success available at ODBD.

Card 1 Recipe

Paper: SU Bella Bleu, Bordering Blue, Water Color Paper, Navy CS

Accessories: Spellbinders Labels 4 die, Martha Stewart fence punch, blue ribbon, Making Memories Key embellishement, rectangle Spellbinders die, Cuttlebug Mosaic Embossing Folder, EK Success Fleur De Lis Punch

The second card features several Our Daily Bread Designs products! The store is rapidly expanding their inventory and there are just so many neat things available in one place!! I used today's new release: Quiet Waters. The image was stamped with Stazon on Watercolor paper and watercolored with Stampin Up Markers. This is such a fun set to watercolor! The designer paper for this card is all available at Our Daily Bread Designs. The paper includes Basic Grey Porcelain Prints, Memory Box Brandywine and Sugar Drop. The bordering shapes around the image and sentiment are using Spellbinders Blossom, Labels 4 and Labels 3 die all available in the store. The flowers are Prima Daisy Dream Quartz. (If you enjoy prima flowers, the selection available at ODBD is so wonderful. You want to be sure and check it out!) I decided to use some of the leaves on one of my ornare templates to frame my verse. The Porcelain prints ribbon went perfectly with the Pink Pirouette, so I used the Pink Pirouette Grossgrain ribbon and cardstock with hodgepodge hardware. I love Pink Pirouette and I am so sad to see it leaving SU this month. Time to do some hoarding before it is gone!!!

Card 2 Recipe

Stamps: Quiet Waters

Paper: Basic Grey Porcelain Prints, Memory Box Brandywine and Sugar Drop, Watercolor Paper, Pink Pirouette Textured CS

Accessories: Spellbinders Label 4, Label 3 and Blossom Die, SU Scalloped Border Punch for corner divets, Pink Pirouette Ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware, Prima Daisy Dream Quartz, SU Little Leaves Sizzlit Die, ornare Piercing and peircing tool
