Our Daily Bread designs January New Release Blog Hop!

Happy New Year, everyone!!!! Not only is it a brand new year, but a brand new month, which brings brand new stamps from Our Daily Bread designs....yay!!! We are super excited about the new sets.......if you haven't seem them all yet, check out the New Release post on the ODBD blog!


Since today is the first day of the month, that means BLOG HOP!!! If you have hopped from the amazingly creative Dawn Lusk's blog, you are in the right place. If you stopped here by chance, please make sure to head to the ODBD blog and start at the beginning of the blog hop, plus catch the deets on how to be one of five winners of a $20 gift certificate to the ODBD store...how cool is that?! You have until Monday, January 2nd at 8pm EST to complete the hop. Good luck!!!



My sample card today was cut out with Spellbinders Labels 17 dies (Pssst......there will be a video tutorial Monday on the ODBD blog which shows how to make shaped cards with your cutting dies....don't miss it!) I have used the "Bleeding Heart" set, along with SEI "Promise Me" designer paper, apricot grosgrain ribbon and pearls (to bring out the apricot colors in the paper). The next photo shows a close-up of the Bleeding Heart image which was cut out with paper snips and a craft knife, then popped up with foam tape. Tedious work, yes, but it's so worth the outcome!



Card 'Ingredients':

Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Bleeding Heart';
Cardstock: SU Whisper White;
Designer Paper: SEI 'Promise Me';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, SU Apricot Appeal, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Signo White Gel Pen;
Accessories: Spellbinders Labels 17 and Oval Nestabilities (sponged background) dies, Grand Calibur, SU Grosgrain Ribbon, Zva Creative Pearls, 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist, paper piercer, foam tape;
Size: Approximately 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.


Now, the moment you've been waiting for......your next stop is Suzanne, from our fabulous Scrapbooking Team......you will love what she has in store for you!!

Enjoy the hop and Happy New Year blessings to you!!!!

I think this bleeding heart stamp is calling my name! I love the tenderness it makes me feel. The colors are absolutely wonderful. I do like how you pulled the apricot out of the pretty paper with the bow color. And the shape of the card adds so much to the overall effect. Nicely done!

beautiful Card. The cut work is stunning!

Beth Norman said...

So very pretty. Your colouring is perfection.

irishgreensue said...

This was easy to identify as one of your beautiful creations - it has the mark of the 'lovely' and sweet lady who created it! Maybe this is one of those stamps that needs a die cut made to match, but you sure did a fantastic job with all the fussy cutting - definitely worth the work to see the final result!
Love the SHAPED card - always so special! HUGS!
