If you have come here for the ODBD Blog hop you are in the right place, if you came here for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, please scroll down to the next post since this is my second post for today.


ODBD December Release Blog Hop
Happy Tuesday All!! Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs December Release Blog Hop!!!! Can you believe it is December already?!!! If you came here from Silke's Blog, you are in the right place!! If you happened on my blog but did not start at the ODBD Blog you really should go there and and begin the hop. The reason is that there are secret words hidden along the hop which you need to collect along with the name of each designer. Upon the completion of the hop you will return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment that you have visited all the blogs. A special email address will be given to you so you can email the secret words and designer found in the correct order. That's all you have to do for the chance to win your choice of one stampset from Our Daily Bread Designs!!!! Actually two winners will be chosen!!!!!


Here are my creations using the Peace and Joy and His Gift Stampset newly release TODAY!!
The first photo shows both my candle and shadowbox card.


My shadowbox card is made using paper from SEI Bisette paper that has gold embossed snowflakes on it from the Peace and Joy Stampset. The snowlakes on the corners are created with the Create a Snowflake die from Spellbinders and the Peace and Joy small snowflake. The small snowflake from this stamp set fits almost perfectly with the create a snowflake die!!!
The pearls are small symetrical flourish pearls from ZVA Creative. The opening is created with the Labels Four die from Spellbinders.
I just love the verse or sentiment which comes from the newly released His Gift stampset.
I overstamped the small snowflake in sage to match my dp. I added lace and gold baubles and wa- la....complete.
The candle is created with the same SEI Bisette paper and the sentiment and verse from His Gift..
I cut out a Spellbinders Pendant using gold foil paper. The think teal lace is from Memory Box. I used the Fleur De Lis EK Success punch. Fun fur yarn was also added for some texture. Again the verse is over stamped with sage snowflakes.
My last project I am sharing with you today is a an ornament holder. I used a short painters can (available on sale this week at Our Daily Bread Designs). The pine cone pictured outside the can is also in the can. I drilled a hole in the lid of the can to pull the ornament string through. The ornament hangs inside. The sentiment on the top of the can says "May the true meaning of Christmas bring you lasting Joy!" from Christmas Verses. Again the paper is from SEI Bisette. I cut out the snowflake window and the snowflakes using Create a Flake 1 from Spellbinders. The stamped and gold embossed snowflakes are created using the Peace and Joy Stamp set. The trim used is from Michaels. The snowflake hanging is a Mini Tree Treasure from Nicole Crafts. The flourished pearls are from ZVA Creative.
