NEW RELEASE DAY FOR TWO ODBD SETS!
Wow, the month of May sure flew by! Though time goes too fast sometimes, it is exciting when the first of each month gets here........NEW SETS FROM OUR DAILY BREAD DESIGNS!!!! YAY!!! And oh my, the "Breadsticks" over at ODBD have already made some gorgeous projects! When you have a second, check out the ODBD card gallery for the new uploads. In the meantime, here are just a few tidbits to sink your teeth into:
This gorgeous set is called "Quiet Waters". I love the peaceful scene and LOVE the verses!!!
The set I chose to highlight today is "Ask, Seek, Knock". Matthew 7:7 was one of the first verses I memorized as a child in Sunday school, so this set is very special to me personally.....plus, isn't this just the coolest door?!
There were some interesting challenges last week over at Splitcoast that I chose to combine for this card. Dawn's Limited Supply Challenge was to use only designer paper except for the card, no coloring allowed, and simple embellishments. Stef's Inspiration Challenge on Saturday was to choose a book cover for your inspiration. I chose "Decorative Architectural Ironwork" because I have wanted to replicate a rod-iron fence ever since I received the two punches mentioned below. So.... I used Basic Grey Ambrosia for the background panel, the fence, and to paper-piece the stone doorway, the door, and the door hardware. The "shrubs" were punched with Martha Stuart foliage and branches punches out of Basic Grey Marrakech. The "rod-iron" fence was made by combining the Martha Stuart picket fence punch with the EK Success Fleur De Lis punch. The gray pearls are Basic Grey "Platinum" Opaline, also from ODBD.
Hey, I wanted to say a warm farewell and thank you to Kim MacNutt and Tosh Leyendekker, who were guest designers for our design team for the past two months! It was so awesome to get to know them and boy, did they rock the ODBD sets!!!!
However, as two were retired, we have two new guest designers whom we are very excited to work with. Hello and welcome to Kathy Jones aka Wattle, and Grace Nywening aka scrappigramma2! Kathy and Grace have already wowed us with the new sets!!! Plus, Sandee Shanabrough aka stampersandee will be staying on as a guest designer until Sita returns.....Sandee has done some fabulous work and has a brand new blog!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Have a totally blessed week!!!!!
