Happy, Happy New Year, everyone!!!!! Thanks so much to all of my readers who have left the most lovely comments here in 2010. Though I missed my 1st Blogiversary last February, I plan to do something special this year for the 2nd anniversary...stay tuned!!
Well, not only am I excited about a brand new year, but you know what the 1st of each month means at Our Daily Bread designs......brand new releases....yay!!!! My goodness, this month Kelley has gone waaaaay overboard! Check out the New Release Post here to see three new stamp sets, a single butterfly stamp with matching cutting die, two background stamps, and an embossing plate!
My sample for today features the new "Faith" set, designed by Dina Kowal at DK Designs. The butterfly and branches image was stamped (and panels stenciled) in Cameo Coral and overstamped with Stazon Timber Brown to match the Basic Grey "Curio" designer paper, one of my new faves!
Most of the designs in the 6 x 6 "Curio" pad have very dark brown borders. Since my card is 5-1/2" square, the designer paper had to be trimmed from two edges. To keep the dark border look, I sponged Stazon Timber Brown on the cut edges, using a scratch paper mask. The designer paper "tidbit" was sponged in the same way and adhered to the inside panel for added decoration.
The pearls and pearl brads are by Zva Creative, the ivory satin and watermelon ribbon are both from May Arts, the bow was tied with a Bow Easy, the frames are Spellbinders Lacey Squares and Lacey Circles, and there are several sprays of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist for a shimmery finish.
