ODBD Bread Basket

Friday, August 1, 2014
Hello all!! Welcome to another fun ODBD Release!!  With summer in full swing... the team is sharing some "Fun in the Sun" summer sets being released today at Our Daily Bread Designs!  

You will want to hop along for lots of inspiration from my talented dt sisters as well as for a chance to win some prizes.  Three winners will be randomly chosen to receive a $15 gift certificate toward stamps at the ODBD store from the comments published on the Release post of randomly selected ODBD designers.  You have until August 2, 2014 at 9 pm EST to leave your comments for your chance to win.  The winners will be posted on the ODBD blog on August 3.

For my first creation I used My Lifeguard, Anchor the Soul, and Walk with Jesus from this months stamp release as well as The Waves on the Sea from a previous release to make a Double Display Card.  What a fun fold and it was so much easier to use the pre-cut Double Display Folds now available at ODBD!!  The designer paper is some OLD Designer paper from my K & Co. Margo pack perfect for distressing.  The image was colored with copics and cut and mounted with the ODBD Vintage Flourish Pattern dies and Vintage Labels die.







For my second creation, I used Walk with Jesus and the Flip Flop dies from this months stamp release as well as the Apron and Tools dies. Don't the shovel and fork make the perfect sand tools!! I  created my own template for the sun and rays as well as ripped my own sand dunes.  The clouds were sponged using a scalloped oval die. The bottom sentiment is recessed using a Labels 4 die.




Here is a photo of the new releases used on my creations:
