Hello!! Welcome to the November ODBD New Release!!  There are lots of fun stamps and dies!!  You won't want to miss the chance to win nor the inspiration from the team!!

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 "ODBD stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until November 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 November 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

My first creation uses the new Snowflake Border Background and the Flourished Merry Christmas stamp sets.  The foliage is created with the new Lovely Leaves, Pine Cones and Small Bow die.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is embossed in silver and framed with two Vintage Labels dies layered.  The silver metallic frame is cut out with the Flourished Star Pattern Die.  The Snowflake Border is stamped in navy and then the entire cardstock is embossed in holographic embossing powder.

Stamps: Flourished Merry Christmas, Snowflake Border
Dies: Flourished Star PatternPineconesLovely LeavesVintage Labels, Small Bow

For my second creation, I had fun creating angels using the new Small Bow die.  They can be created using any of the different sizes, however.





To create these angels I cut the head out of a Flesh cardstock and a 3/4 inch circle die.  The halo is cut out of gold glitter cardstock and a 1 1/4 inch circle die.  The tail of the Small Bow die is cut in half to be layered behind the bow to make the dress.  All the pieces of the bow are embossed with a poinsettia embossing folder.  The dress ruffle is created by cutting the 4 scallops off of the scalloped circle of the Recipe Card and Tag die. The embellishing in the middle of the bow is created with the Pretty Posies Die.


The items used on my creations from the new release include these:

Oh, I love your angels, Chris! They are so cute. I especially like how you added texture to the bows. I also like how you pulled the ribbon ends of the bows down.

The angels are angelic with the new bow die.

The blue and white card is stunning. It makes me think of delft blue. I love this new stamp and the new dies. I wonder if anyone else thinks it looks like a delft blue creation. It is very pretty.

Chris, my sweet, sweet friend, you have created some absolutely amazing and ttally striking projects for this release! Love, absolutely love that first card in that rich blue and white design and those angels, girl, we were thinking very similar, my angel is not as beautiful and I tucked mine in and did not make it an ornament, but we never the less thought along the same lines. :D TFS and always inspiring my friend!
