ODBD Bread Basket

Saturday, July 1, 2017
Hello Friends!! Welcome to the ODBD July Release!!  It is a perfect summer release as we think about sun and summer!! You won't want to miss all the inspiration from the ODBD Breadbasket (ODBD design 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 on their blogs!  You have until July 2, 2017, 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 July 3rd, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

Today I have two projects to share with you.  The first card I am sharing with you is created using the  new Bon Voyage stamp set, Ferns dies, and Frangipani dies, as well as the previously released Lavish Layers, Ovals, Pierced Rectangles dies, and Boho Bold 6x6 paper pack.

The image is sponged using a circles die and several bright inks to create the sunset.  After die cutting the Frangipani die I traced the embossed sections with copics and wet the flower so I could shape it for a more 3d flower.

 The second card is created using the new released Bon Voyage stamp set, Frangipani dies, and Fern Dies as well as the previously released Doily Dies, Pierced Rectangles dies, Lavish Layers dies, Beautiful Borders dies and the Boho Bold 6x6 Paper Pack.

Again the flowers were colored with copics (pink, light violet and yellow) after it was die cut and then wet so it could be molded.

The new stamp sets are pictured here:

You've made two really fantastic and very different cards for us today. The first is tropical and full of beautiful colors in the sky and accented by wonderful flowers. The second features a couple of my favorite things: doilies and the color pink!! So I really like both cards VERY much!! Thanks!

$Million$ Dollar Designs said...

What kind of material or paper do you use to create your flowers? You said you mold them after you set them. Do you color them first and the mold them or vice versa? Is there a tutorial for the floral making? The flowers make both of your cards stunning! Really pretty! I love your color choices and card designs! I would like to replicate both, so I appreciate any information you can give me! Thank you!
