Hello Friends!!

 Today I am popping in to share the March Release at Our Daily Bread Designs!!  Kelley has some really beautiful stamp sets and dies this month that you won't want to miss.  Each of the team members will be showing a couple of projects using these new sets so you won't want to miss all the inspiration!!


Three winners will randomly be chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $25 Gift certificate to the ODBD store to be used toward the purchase of ODBD stamps.  You have until March 2, 2014 at 9:00 pm EST to make your comments.  The winners will be posted on the ODBD blog on March 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you have won.

My first creation uses the new Zinnia stamps and custom dies, the Daisy Chain die, the Sweeter than Honey and Blooming Garden Paper collection released this month!!  I just love the gorgeous blue of the paper.  The Zinnias were colored three times and cut with the Zinnia and Leaves die and layered.  The bees are also colored with copics and cut out with a die.  The beautiful floral die background is the new Daisy Chain background die.




My second creation uses the Heart and Soul Collection Paper collection released last month, the Daisy Chain Background (layered between the Gold Labels 4 and Opulent Ovals dies), the Hummingbird, and Bee Balm.  The hummingbird was colored with copics and cut out with a custom ODBD Hummingbird die.  The sentiment is from the Sweeter than Honey stamp set and is cut out with the ODBD Recipe and Tags die.



Here are some of the sets used from the new release:
