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!!
