ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, December 1, 2015
Hello, Friends!! It is now December and the Our Daily Bread Designs Bread Basket is sharing inspiration for the latest release at Our Daily Bread Designs!!  Today Kelley has several beautiful stamp sets and dies that she has released today!!!  How many of us struggle to make masculine cards...well struggle no more.  These stamp sets are perfect for the men in your life!!

You won't want to miss the opportunity to win the fun prizes or the wonderful inspiration from my talented dt sisters!!


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

Here is my first creation using the new stamp set Living Water as well as the new Double Stitched Rectangles dies, Rectangles Dies, and Double Stitched Circle Dies.  I had so much fun coloring the image with copics.  I then sponged the sky with Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze ink and added Liquid Applique and white sparkling crystal glitter for dimension and sparkle to make the image look more wintery.

In addition to the new releases, I used the Patriotic Paper Collection, Circle Ornaments dies (which coordinates beautifully with the new Double Stitched Circle dies), elegant oval dies and the Fancy Ornaments dies.

My second creation uses the Safe Travels image and verse as well as the Rectangles dies, Double Stitched Rectangles dies, Vintage Flourish Pattern dies, Ovals dies, and Stitched Ovals dies.  After coloring the image and cutting it out using the rectangular dies, I added crystal effects to make the scene more wintery.
