ODBD Bread Basket

Sunday, May 1, 2016
Hello, Friends!! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs May 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 May 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 May 3rd, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

My first creation uses the new Tea Time Stamp set and Coordinating Tea Pot and Roses Die to create a Tea Pouch Gift Card Holder.  The cover of the project has the tea pot colored with copics, cut out with the coordinating die and mounted on the Flourishy Frame die.

The Flourishy Frame is mounted on a rectangular panel using the Pierced Rectangles dies, Rectangles Dies, and the Cozy Comfort Quilt Collection dp.  The embossed peach background is framed with a silver metallic paper cut from the Flourished Star Pattern

The design of this tea pouch gift card holder is my own.  It is not using a tutorial or someone elses idea.  Again the dp is from the Cozy Quilt Paper Collection.  The sentiment is from the Tea Time stamp set and is cut out with the Pierced Rectangles dies.  It is then mounted on a rectangle cut from the Lavish Layer dies.

My second creation is a matching card created with the Tea Time Stamp set and Coordinating Tea Pot and Roses Die.  I just loved coloring this image!!!  The image is layered on an oval created with the Pierced Ovals and the Majestic Medallion dies.
    The rectangular frame is created with the Pierced Rectangles Dies, Lavish Layers dies, and Cozy Quilt Paper Collection.
