Monday, July 1, 2013



Today is July 1st and Our Daily Bread Designs is having an awesome new release!!!!  You are going to love the dies and sets released this month.  While, normally we have a hop, this month we are doing things a bit different.  There will still be a chance for a $50 gift certificate toward stamps at the ODBD store.  The winner will be chosen from one of the designers blogs so you won't want to miss commenting on all the links along the way for a chance to win. 

Here are my creations:

First is a creation that I made using To the Love Birds and Banner Sentiments.   



My designer paper is retired paper from Stampin Up.  The image is inked up in blue and embossed with a basket weave embossing folder. The image is framed with the Spellbinders Ironwork Accents.  The bottom border is created with the Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders 1.

My second creation is made with Anniversary Blessings and To the Lovebirds. It also uses the ODBD Custom Bird Cage and Banner Dies.




The sentiment is framed with the Labels 4 dies.  The image is sponged with Sky Blue and framed with the Gold Labels 4 die.  The scalloped layers are created with the Spellbinders Scalloped Borders one.

Here is a photo of the new release sets used:








Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you were inspired in some way by my creations.
