Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket

Saturday, August 1, 2015
Hello, Friends!! August is now upon us and the Bread Basket at ODBD is kicking off the month with another fun relief!!  You will want to see all the inspiration from the team and have a chance to win!!

Here is my first creation using Boho Paisley Background  and the Boho Faith stamp sets as well as the Boho Background die, Stitched Ovals dies, Faith, Hope and Love dies, and Ovals die from this month's new release and the Birds and Nest dies, Fancy Foliage, and Butterfly and Bugs stampset and Butterfly and Bugs dies, and Mini Tags dies from prior releases.

I had a blast creating this card using the embossing resist technique for my background.  I embossed the stamped background in holographic glitter and inked it up with almost Amethyst.  I am unsure if you can see the sparkle or not in this photo, but boy does this card shimmer!!  To create the open oval, I die cut an oval using the new ovals dies on the boho background die.  The leaves, foliage, and butterflies were colored with copics. The sentiment is from the Boho Faith stamp set.

My second creation is created with the Boho Blessings stamp set, Boho Background die, Stitched Ovals dies, Ovals dies from the new release and the Fancy Fritillary, Fence die, Mini Tags and Grass Border previously released. The background behind the boho background is a cherry pink cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder.  The butterfly is in the Boho Blessings stamp set and it coordinates with the previously released Fancy Fritillary!! It cuts out the butterfly beautifully and coordinates with the decorative part of the die set as well making the perfect 3d butterfly!!

Oh, Chris, both cards are beautiful, and you always have such a way with dies and layering to add such beautiful texture. And the bows are fabulous! I really love the beautiful "spray" you've arranged on the first card with the bow nestled in and the sentiment below...stunning. And I love the other bow entwined in the "fence" die.
