Hello Friends!! Welcome to the ODBD February Release!!  You won't want to miss all the inspiration from the design team using these beautiful stamps or miss the opportunity to win!!

Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until February 2, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on February 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Here is my first creation using the new stamp set Miss You and the Christmas Paper Collection 2014, Vintage Labels dies, Asters die, and Fancy Foliage die.

I had seen the Fold Over Box Tutorial on Splitcoast after Christmas and wanted to make it as a gift holder for a dear friend!!  I had a blast!!  I hope she enjoys it!

The Miss You stamp set is stamped in Memento black.  I created clouds using a scalloped oval.  It is framed with the Marvelous Squares (Spellbinders) and layered on a piece of dp and the Captivating Squares die (Spellbinders). The background panel on the top is created by stamping the Miss you image multiple times on a piece of the Christmas Paper 2014 Collection and then I embellished with the Fancy Foliage die.


Here is a second angle of the box where you can see the Miss You stamp on the back binding of the box and a different view of the box closed with the Asters.  The box itself uses the Christmas Collection 2014 paper.


Here is a close up of the front of the box.


Here is a photo of the inside of the box (open) with the verse from the Miss You stamp set framed with the Vintage Labels die.



Here is a photo of the pen I used as my inspiration turned by my dear husband.  I made the box to match it.  This what is inside the box.  Scott is now selling them.  You can see more details here.



Here is my second creation using the Life is a Gift stamp set and the Hello word die!!

The background image is embossed in Pearl embossing powder on a green background and then pierced on the edges.  I added some butterflies, rhinestones and pearls and the Hello word die!

I then just added a flying trail for my butterfly and some seam binding.



Here are samples of the stamps and dies used for my creation from this month's release:
