Our Daily Bread designs New Release/Blog Hop

Wow, can you believe that July is gone and August is here? I sure hate to see summer go by so fast, but I'm happy to see that Our Daily Bread designs has SIX new sets to release this month, plus custom made cutting dies for two of ODBD's stamped images!!!! Please see the New Release Post on the ODBD blog for all of the juicy details and to see all of the new sets!!! I usually display all of the new sets here, but since there are six sets plus the new dies, my post would be a novel!!!!



My sample today was made with the new "Don't Worry" set.....I absolutely LOVE this chicory flower image and the realistic butterfly is gorgeous too!! Using masking, I stamped the chicory image repeatedly on this tri-fold card, cut the flower outlines on the top of the two outside panels and punched the center panel with a Martha Stewart picket fence punch. The flowers were colored with Stampin Up markers, the apricot background was colored with a sponge dauber. The butterfly was sponged first with apricot, then highlighted with a Ruby Red marker and a white gel pen. This was a bit time consuming, but I will definitely make another one like it!!

Now.....the moment you've been waiting for....on to the Blog Hop!! If you have hopped here from Grace's blog, you are in the right place. If not, please start at the ODBD blog to start at the beginning and get all of the deets on how to win $15.00 toward ODBD stamps!!! There will be three lucky hoppers to win. You have until 8 PM EST on August 2nd to complete the hop.

Your next hopping point is Kathy's blog......oh my goodness...wait until you see her creation......break out the drool bib!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!! Good luck on the hop and have a blessed week!!!!

That is amazing. I love the use of the picket fence punch and the cut out flowers are gorgeous. That takes a lot of patience. But it sure makes for a beautiful card! Thanks for sharing.

Cook22 said...

This is one I have my eye on, as not one of the butterfly stamps I currently own is realistic. I don't think we have chicory here, I can see this in all sorts of colours because I have no preconceived idea of what it should look like!

christi said...

this is just too cute. love the picket fence. this is so creative.

Ravenwood said...

Oh this is just wonderful!!! I never knew there was a Chicory flower, I love them! The butterfly looks as if he would just flit off the paper at any moment!
