Our Daily Bread designs' Trio of Cards

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm soooo looking forward to the plans except getting caught up on some stamping (and posting some cards....I'm waaaaay behind, so here come three projects at once!)

My first card was made with the latest addition to the "Full of Grace Collection" by Our Daily Bread designs, called "Pray", along with a new background stamp, "Wood Background". The background stamp was inked up with SU Not Quite Navy, then stamped off twice before stamping on the panels. The designer paper is Basic Grey "Oliver", the Corduroy button and brads are SU, the twill ribbon is by May Arts, and the twine I just bought (250 feet) for $1.00 at the Covered Bridge Festival last week.....score!!!

I used the Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge, "Prayer", for this card. Yep, just one combos for this one!


This card I made a couple of weeks ago, but didn't get it posted here. I made this for two challenges over at Christian Paper Crafts.....Jenny's Color Monday Challenge of blue and brown, and Jennipher's awesome Sketch Tuesday Challenge. I used the "Grow in Grace" stamp set by Our Daily Bread designs, along with Memory Box "Spearmint" designer paper, cut out with Spellbinders Labels Eight to fit the sketch, embellished with Zva Creative Pearls, May Arts Satin Ribbon tied with a Bow Easy, and lots of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist!


For my third card, I used the "Dad" set by Our Daily Bread designs....this is my go-to stamp for a lot of masculine cards...what an awesome empowering!!! The Basic Grey "Oliver" designer paper was punched at the top with an EK Success Alpine border punch. The sentiment panel was cut with Spellbinders Curved Rectangles. The green and patterned treeline was also cut with the same die, but I trimmed the embossed line in order to give it a matted look. The green mat under the sentiment panel was embossed with the same die, then cut out by hand on the outside edge, since the next nested size was too large for a close mat. For a finishing touch, sponging, paper piercing, and May Arts wide twill ribbon was added.

The following challenges were incorporated into this card:
Christian Paper Crafts Fun On Friday Challenge: Music & Song/ Mountains & Sea;
Frosted Designs Challenge: use die cuts.

Here is a close up of the sentiment panel showing the punched and die cut tree line.

Thanks for stopping by today! I do cherish each and every visitor!! Have a blessed weekend!!!
