Hello, Friends!!  ODBD does not only have one release this month, they have two!! This month there is a special mid-month release with lots of fun and beautiful stamps and dies!!  

Not only does the team have lots of inspiration for you, there is also a chance to be one of three randomly chosen winners to receive a $25 gift certificate toward stamps!!!  All you have to do is leave comments on each of the designers blogs and three random winners will be chosen from the comments left on the different designers blogs!!  The winners will be announced on the ODBD blog on September 16.

Here is my creation using the new stamp set: Beauty, and the new Dies: Leafy Edged Borders and Pretty Posies dies!!


In addition to the new releases, The Vintage Flourished Pattern dies, Stitched Ovals dies, and Fancy Foliage dies were used.  The embossing folder is Cuttlebug Dotted Squares.  I had so much fun adding texture, stitching,  and inking and embossing the leaves and flowers!!  I can see lots of different uses for these flowers!!

My second creation uses the Beauty Stamp set and the Leafy Edges Borders from the new releases as well as the edges of the Vintage Flourished Pattern die to emboss a frame around the image.  I just love how the flower pops against the white and the leafy border die adds such elegance.  In addition to coloring the image with copics, I added stitching, piercing, and embossing with a swirled frame embossing folder and a Daisy flourish embossing folder.  The anther of the flower is embossed in gold. 

Here is the photo of the dies and stamps used:














I hope you have enjoyed my creations!!  For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: Angie, Sabrina, Loretta, Grace, Lori, Amy, Silke, Julie, Paula, Cathy, Dawn, Sandee, Diana, Robin,  and America.

Thanks for stopping and for leaving encouraging comments.  I deeply appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Have a blessed day!!

Card number 2 is very pretty. Card number 1 is unbelievable. I love the new Pretty posies die with the color blue and then the blue card stock peeking underneath the new Leafy edged dies. This is a stunning card. The new sentiments go great with these dies.
