Our Daily Bread designs February New Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the February New Release Blog Hop for Our Daily Bread designs! Another brand new month will lots of brand new goodies to show off....to see all of the February New Releases, check out the New Release post on the ODBD blog. All of the Breadsticks have created some amazing samples with the new sets...get ready to hop and see them all!

You're right....this isn't my usual frilly type of card! :) I absolutely LOVE this new background stamp, "He Shall Be Called" and wanted to feature it for the hop today. There was a vellum scrap on my desk which caught my eye, so I started out by grabbing some SEI chalk ink since I love to clear emboss with it, especially on vellum. The ocean blue ink led me to the SEI "Bridgeport" designer paper.....so bright and cheerful! The embossing was a success, so I trimmed around the print to look like deckle scissors (I was too lazy to get up and look for the real ones!), sponged the edges in SU Early Espresso, ran the vellum through my Xyron sticker maker, and adhered to the SEI designer paper. I didn't want to add too many embellishments which would take the attention off of the powerful stamp, so I sponged the edges, paper pierced, and added linen thread and brads. It's "different", but I hope you like it!!

Now, the moment you've been waiting for......on with the hop!!!!

If you hopped here from Debi’s Blog, then you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog....we don't want you to miss a thing!

Traci S. said...

Hi Angie,

Something different, not the same technique can still be magnificent.

I love how you higlighted His names. It is just what I was thinking when I was looking at the stamp, thinking how I would use it. I decided I would want to use it where the stamp is the main focus...why Turn Our Eyes Off of It?

I love the color that you added to the vellum. This is beautiful, Angie!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

Betty Wright said...

Gorgeous, Angie! The overlay look with this background stamp and dp makes it have so much depth! Beautifully done!
