I hope everyone has enjoyed a blessed holiday weekend!! I know that I thank God for so many things both big and small!!!  

Today I am popping with cards for the new release at Our Daily Bread Designs.  Boy are you in for a treat!! The dies and stamps are gorgeous!! I am so enjoying playing with them!! I hope you are inspired by my creations.



You won't want to miss visiting my dt sisters for some great inspiration and a chance to win a prize!!

Three winners will be randomly chosen from one of the designers blog comments to receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps.  You have until December 2, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on December 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Here are my creations using at least one stamp from each of the new sets!!


The first card is created with the Ornate Borders and Flowers Stamp Set, the Ornate Borders and Flowers Die, the Ornate Borders and No Words.  The middle flower is created with the flower stamp with in the set.  The larger flower is created with the corner stamps within the set stamped four times to create a complete flower.

I used Bravo Burgundy ink and the Sizzix Dotted Squares.  The background is embossed with Darice Damask.  You can really see the texture in person but it is hard to see in the photo.  The ides behind middle square panel is Spellbinders Labels 27. The border of the card uses Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Squares. The sentiment is first framed with the Ornate Borders and flowers then cut out with the custom dies and then mounted on a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die.






My second creation uses the Ornate Background embossed in pearl embossing powder on white.  The flower is from the Ornate Border and Flower stamp set and is embossed with pearl, sponged with pink ink and then cut out with the Ornate Border and Flower Dies. The dp is actually from my scrap bin. The border is created with the Spellbinders Bracket 1 border.  The sentiment is from Ornate Borders sentiments.



Here is photo of a card I made for a sneak peek which was made for my brother and sister in law who lost her father this week.  At times like this there are just no words...the No Words set is perfect for this occasion!!

For the details see this post.



Here are all the sets to be released which I have also used up above:









I hope you are inspired by my creations.  I sure enjoyed creating them.
