Here are the new and previously released items from Our Daily Bread designs which are featured in my two projects below:

ODBD The Beatitudes ODBD For Thine Is The Kingdom

ODBD Custom Deco Border Die ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies

ODBD Ornate Background ODBD Easter Card Collection 2016

ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies

For my first card, I cut out four borders with the ODBD Custom Deco Border Die from pearl metallic cardstock (stenciled with Stazon lavender), taped them with temporary tape to an A2 size card base (5-1/2 x 4-1/4), then mitred the corners together.  I'm thrilled that the borders were the perfect size to do this without a lot of fuss!!! Once all of the corners were cut, the four pieces were glued to the card base using craft glue.  The center panel was stamped in eggplant with 'The Beatitudes' stamp onto floral designer paper from the ODBD Easter Card Collection 2016, then cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  These words are so powerful, so they get full attention here; the only embellishments added were pearls in the corners. (Please click on the photo for a closer look.)

For my second card, I started by cutting out the fancy oval panel out of textured tan cardstock using the ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies, then stamped in eggplant with 'For Thine is the Kingdom'.  The oval panel was layered over a plum panel on which the 'Ornate Background' was stamped in eggplant, then cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  Sheer ribbon and purple pearls were the only added embellishments.

Apple Blessings

Hi, everyone!!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Jan aka Precious Kitty....congrats, Jan!  I chose this beautiful card to case today.  For my card, I have used the 'Apples' set by Our Daily Bread designs, along with the 'Pennant Flag Verses', ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies, ODBD Custom Double Stitched Pennant Flags DiesODBD Custom Double Stitched Squares Dies and the ODBD Ephemera Essentials Paper Collection.  Since my apple image was fairly large, I changed her square card to an A2.

Be Joyful!

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Audrie's Journal Art Pinterest Board.  I fell in love with the colors and flower of this photo and incorporated the polka dots, eyelets, flowers, and embroidery thread into my card.  I have used the following items from Our Daily Bread designs: 'Be Joyful' stamp set, ODBD Birthday Brights Paper Collection, and the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.  I was happy to use the eyelets and thread, which have been in my stash for many years!  I am a proclaimed pack-rat, but I know I will use up my stash eventually! LOL!! :)

Flourished Lilacs

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from Cindy Hill's Spellbinders Pinterest Board.....I fell in love with this gorgeous card by Debbie Olson. For my card, I used the following items from Our Daily Bread designs: ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, ODBD Custom Vintage Labels Dies, and the 'Lilac' set.  Since I do not have purple seam binding, I used ivory instead, which coordinates with the ivory card base and image panel....the bow was tied with a Bow Easy.  The image was stamped in Stazon Jet Black, colored with markers, then yellow was sponged around the image.

Pink Snowflake Blessings

Happy Friday, everyone!  This week's Friday Free4All Challenge theme over at Splitcoast is 'Relax'.  Though I'm not ready for the cold wind and ice of winter, I confess that I am super excited that Indiana will be getting snow flurries tomorrow!  Winter relaxing to me means vegging on the couch and watching the snow fall while our bird feeders get ravaged by our feathered 'dependents'! :)  For my card, I have used the following items from Our Daily Bread designs: ODBD Custom Snowflake Sky Dies (both the snowflake background and pink frame), ODBD 'Many Blessings' Stamp/Die Duos, and the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies (a larger rectangle was 'resized' for the perfect size panel). Other than the pearls, this is a flat card which should be easy to mail.
