ODBD Bread Basket

Friday, May 1, 2015
Welcome to the ODBD May New Release!!!  The breadbasket has enjoyed using the new stamps and they are so excited to share their creations with you!  You will want to join us for lots of inspiration and a chance to win a $25 gift certificate!!

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 May 2, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on May 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won! For more details, see the ODBD blog post here.

Here is my first creation using the new stamp sets Belles Vignes, Trois Jois Papillons, and the Psalm 23 as well as the Trois Jois Papillons die.  The designer paper is Christmas Collection 2014 and the flourishes are created using the Fancy Foliage die.


Our Daily Bread Designs, Belles Vignes, Trois Jois Papillons, 23rd Psalm, Trois Jois Papillons die, Christmas Collection 2014, and Fancy Foliage die, Designer-Chris Olsen

I so enjoy butterflies and had such a fun time using my copics to color the three different butterflies in the Trois Jollis Papillons stamp set and cutting them out with the matching dies (Trois Jollis Papillons dies).  The vines on the dp are created with the Belles Vignes dies stamped in black Versamark in alternate corners.

My second creation uses the Belles Vignes stamp set embossed in holographic embossing powder.  I then used the embossing resist technique and sponged ink (Coastal Cabana) over the embossing to make the vines pop up.  The sentiment is from the Spread your Wings stamp set and the beautiful two layer butterfly is created with the Fancy Fritillary die.


Here is a picture of my card lying flat which shows more detail of the vines and the dimension of the butterfly.


Here is the photo of the sets and dies used from the new release:

the butterflies compliment that wonderful Psalm, Spring popping out all over, new life and beauty.

Sabrina said...

That vine stamp is so beautiful, and with holographic ep it must be quite stunning. But those butterflies really caught my eye even more, with those vivid colours. I love the script in the Psalm stamp - I still have and use the original one from way back, but this script one looks like a great addition!
