ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Welcome Friends, to the March ODBD New Release!!! You won't want to miss the inspiration from the bread basket using the new release or the 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 on their blogs!  You have until March 2, 2016, at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 3rd, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

My first creation uses the new Double Stitched Star Dies and Super Star Stamp Set as well as the previously released Flourished Star Pattern Die, Vintage Labels Dies, Fancy Foliage Dies, and Sparkling Star Dies.  The designer paper used is the Heart and Soul Collection!

To create the smaller stars above, I created a mask with the smaller star within the Sparkling Star Dies and stamped the largest star from the Superstar stamp set.  I then cut it out with the Double Stitched Star Dies and layered it on dimensional adhesive to the larger stamped star.  The background is created with the Heart and Soul designer paper die cut with the Flourished Star Pattern Die.

My second creation is meant to be a birthday card. It is created with the new Superstar stamp set, Double Stitched Star Dies, Double Stitched Square Dies, and Square Dies as well as the Beautiful Border Dies and Flourished Star Pattern Die (last layer for border). 
The sentiment is die cut with the Pennant dies.  The border along the edge is created with the Beautiful Borders dies.

Great detail on both cards. I love the new release and that you used different dies and other items from ODBD to add to the beauty of these cards. Great job.

Such great cards, I really like kraft coloured cards. TFS!

Wow! The stars in your first card really look as if they are hanging. I love the verse that goes along with it. Very fitting. Beautiful work. Gina B.

CherylQuilts said...

Oh, Chris, as always, I adore your cards and your ability to combine such beautiful dies into a stunning card! I love the first one and this precious Scripture verse. What comfort to know that He knows the names of each stars and also knows our names, the number of hairs on our heads, and loves us so dearly to call us to Himself. Beautifully done with the stars and flourishes, and I love the color. And the second card is a fun one with the layered stars and the sweet sentiment - perfect for anyone! I love each one and you, sweet friend! Hugs!

Cheryl Walker said...

Super cute cards!! Love all the dies and stamps used!!
hugs

Lovely cards. The first is so happy and patriotic looking. The second has colors which I love to see together and the lattice background combined with the lace is beautiful. Excellent showing of versatile creativity.

Kelley said...

Chris, I love these cards as they have such great colors! Love the mix and match of the different dies. So clever!!

Julie- justwritedesigns said...

Both of these are wonderful, Chris! I love the colors & vines swirling around your first star card & the quilted look of your second is so pretty.

Beautiful cards, Chris! Such a wonderful way to showcase the ODBD Dies!
