ODBD Bread Basket

Friday, January 1, 2016
Hello Friends!!  Happy New Year to all!! The ODBD bread basket is kicking off the new year with a wonderful new release and lots of inspiration.  You won't want to miss the inspiration or 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 "ODBD stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until January 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 January 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

My first creation I would like to share with you uses the New Wishing Well image and sentiment, Wishing die, and Circles die as well as the previously released Stitched Ovals, Boho Background die , Double Stitched Circles and Beautiful Borders die.  While the Boho Background is a die cut, it was just embossed on this card.

My second creation is created using the New release: My Refuge and the previously released: Boho Background.



The My Refuge stamp set is not only beautiful for Bible Journaling or making a card, it is perfect for a bookmark as well.  The background of this card is embossed with a Darice Flourished Leaves die. The boho background is cut into a 1/3 from each edge and pieced behind the image/sentiment panel.

Here are the stamp and die sets used from this month's release:
