Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket

Monday, June 1, 2015
Hello, all!!  Happy June!!  Today the bread basket at Our Daily Bread Designs is kicking off the month with a new fun release, stamps, dies and paper!!! You will want to check out the fun and beautiful creations made by the team.  You also have a chance 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 June 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 June 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Here is my first creation using the tool time dies, workshop tools, World's Greatest, and Good Man to create a sort of apron shaped tri-fold gift card holder.  The apron shape used the Apron and Tools Die. The sentiment is framed using the elegant ovals die.



This is the card closed before mailing!



 

The sentiment is framed using the elegant ovals die. The background is framed using the  new Pegboard die.


This panel sentiment uses the World's Greatest stamp set.


My second creation uses the Sunburst Background die and Hello Sunshine. The background is colored with copics.  The sentiment is inside the shaker.  The outside of the shaker is created with the Apron and Tools die.


Here are the stamp sets and dies used for this month's release:
