Hi All!!
Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs March Release Blog Hop! If you came here from the Our Daily Bread Designs blog you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to start there so you don't miss anything along the way.

I am so excited to share this month's release. We in the bread basket have been thoroughly enjoying creating with these sets!!Spring is definitely in the air and we are prepared with stamps for  Easter and spring with flowers, and verses and quotes!!


The Hop will run from 8am EST Mar. 1 until 8pm EST. Mar. 2. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Thurs. March 3.This month, there will be Three prizes of a Flower Corner and Tag Set, and one grand prize of a Bread Basket Bundle!


Here is what you need to do to be entered in the drawing:

Now on to my creations...
I decided to use the beautiful Tulip Corners and Tulip Tags sets to create a gift box and double pocket card.  One of the tags also uses the sentiment from the Daffodil tag set.  The tags are layered and cut out using the tag die available only at ODBD.  The cutting of dies was made easier because I could more than one at a time using the Grand Caliber machine from Spellbinders.

 This box is my own design (no templates used).  The gingham ribbon is laced through the Lotus borders die.  The corner flowers are created with the Lotus die set as is the border around the laced ribbon.  The flowers are from the Tulip tags set.  They are colored with copics (R24, R27, R59, YG01, YG03, YG13, YG17, G41, and G28) and cut out.  The bow is tied with the bow easy. The pearls are ZVA Creative pink pearls.
My pocket card uses the Tulip Corner stamp set for the front.  The designer paper is from Recollections and K&co. The lace is from Joann Fabrics.  The tulips are colored with the same copics above.  The pocket and tags are stitched with gold thread.

 This tag uses the sentiment from Tulip Tags.  The tag is cut out with the Tag die (exclusive to ODBD).
 This second tag uses the tulip from the Tulip Tag stamp set and the sentiment from the Daffodil Tag set.
