Our Daily Bread designs January New Release Blog Hop!

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.


Now....the moment you've been waiting for.....

Welcome to the "Leap of Faith" blog hop by Our Daily Bread designs! You are going to flip out when you see the beautiful creations from my fellow Breadsticks today!! If you have hopped here from Julie's blog, you are in the right spot! If you are here by chance, please head over to the ODBD blog for all of the deets and to start from the beginning....we don't want you to miss a thing!!! You have until 8 PM EST on Sunday, January 2nd to complete the hop and follow the winning requirements. Kelley has generously offered to award FIVE lucky hoppers their choice of one free stamp set....how awesome is that?!

Next, you will be hopping over to sweet Grace Nywening's blog.....wait until you see what she has in store for you!!! By the way, if there are any broken links along the way, please go back to the ODBD blog, where there is a complete hop list.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! May your New Year be full of blessings!!!

Very pretty card! I like the use of a word AND phrase, both on the front. Also like seeing part of a image used as a background and going off the paper -- good reminder to me to look at my stamps in different ways!

Diana Walsh said...

I am farley new to card making and stamping; I love all the different techniques, colors and stamps! There are so many different stamps I would love to own, and ODBD stamps support my faith and allow me to share it with those I send cards to. I need a lot of different supplies but one day at a time I will be able to accomplish getting them so I can also make wonderful creative cards.
