ODBD Sneak Peek!


Just a little sneak peek for today for one of the upcoming new releases by Our Daily Bread designs, Snowflake Background. One of last winter's favorite sets was "Peace and Joy" of which the large and small layered snowflakes are from, plus just last month a custom cutting die set was released to cut out the snowflakes perfectly....without having to use your craft knife!!! Both the background stamp and snowflakes were embossed with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder, then sponged with SU Almost Amethyst. The border punch is SU, the pearls are Zva Creative, the crocheted ribbon is May Arts, the velvet ribbon is Wrights, the popped up snowflakes were covered in stickles for extra glitz, and there are about 10 layers of Glacier Glimmer Mist on the Snowflake Background panel.

Here is a close up view of the die-cut snowflakes.....I am so super thankful to have dies for these....I have cut these by hand before...the large took me 2 1/2 hours to cut with paper snips and craft knife! Now, they can be cut out in less than a minute....cha-ching!!!!



I have incorporated the following challenges in this card:
The Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light Challenge: Choose one of their most popular three challenges: Sparkle, Dies and punches, or texture....I used all three!
Wednesday Case Artist from Christian Paper Crafts: I chose this gorgeous card from Mary's gallery (softangelkisses) to re-create;
Splitcoast's Inspiration Challenge: I chose this gorgeous amethyst and silver Vixen Bracelet from the Destiny's Creations store;
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge: Holiday card;
Christmas Stampin' All Year: Purple and silver;
Fussy and Fancy: Winter Wonderland;
ABC Challenge: G is for Glitter;
Creative Cottage: Embossing;
Craft Your Passion: Glitter/Sparkles/Bling.

Wow!! I love snowflakes and what you did here is beautiful!! What a great mix with the silver embossing and the soft purple, and the textures. Whoa 10 layers of glimmer mist?!! : ) Seeing that snowflake die used makes me want the stamp, and die, and the new background stamp.
