ODBD Bread Basket

Wednesday, July 1, 2009
Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog Hop and Flutter By Wednesday. Today Kelley is releasing 5 awesome sets of stamps. If you want to see them, just click the link "on the five awesome sets of stamps". Two of the sets, Grow in Grace and the Amazing Grace Hymn were designed by Dina Kowall from Mama Dini's Stamperia. She is such a talented artist! You won't want to miss all the creations by the team for today's blog hop. My second creation uses the Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and the Flutter By Wednesday open challenge to incorporate a butterfly or fairy.

If you have come here for the ODBD blog hop from Jane, you are in the right place. If not, you may want to start at the beginning at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog. There is blog candy along the way at three different blogs so you don't want to miss any stops along the way! Woo hoo! Even I don't know where it is.


Judy, our dt coordinator challenged us to use three ink colors from Our Daily Bread Designs. (Kelley now carries a new line of ink pads made by the same company as Stampin UP. The colors are awesome and they are super juicy and inexpensive too!!) The real challenge was that we didn't know what the stamps were before we chose our colors. The stamps could have been anything! I am so glad I chose sunflower, dusty pink and olive! Woo hoo! Perfect for a dogwood and a lotus!


If you look at the recipe, you will notice I have used a lot of Our Daily Bread Designs items from the store. I am going to cut this short today as far as the details so you can hop to the next place which is Judy! You won't want to miss her awesome creation!!!


Stamps: Amazing Grace, Grow in Grace
Paper: Brenda Walton DP from K&Co.
Accessories: EK Success Fleur De Lis Punch, Hero Arts Pearls, ODBD olive, sunflower. and dusty rose inks, lace, Memory Box Rhinestones

Stamps: Mother Teresa
Paper: Porcelain Prints by Basic Grey, So Saffron, and Pink Pirouette
Accessories, Hero Arts Pearls, EK Success Fleur De lis Punch, Peony Spellbinders, MS Classic Butterfly Punches, ODBD Olive and Sunflower Inks



For more inspiration for the Flutter By Challenge go to my dt sister's blogs: Ann, Cassie, Cathy, Christine, Danni, Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kim, Kimmie, Lelia, Michelle, Nancy, Nicola, and Stef. If you do make a card with a butterfly or fairy post a direct link to Danni's blog here. If you post your creation on SC please use the keyword FBW. For the ODBD blog hop continue on to Judy. I hope we have some winners of blog candy and that you enjoy the creations of my dt sisters! The ODBD sets this month are so beautiful!!!
