Our Daily Bread designs 4th Anniversary New Release Hop!

Hi everyone! The day is finally here.....it's Our Daily Bread designs' 4th Anniversary.....congrats, ODBD!!!! For those of you who have been with us for a while, you know that we have brand new scripture stamps to release for our anniversary! To our newcomers, WELCOME! For each anniversary's stamp release, all of the designers for ODBD (Our Daily Bread designs) have the opportunity to choose a scripture to be made into a stamp.....this year, we have chosen a mixture of scriptures, quotes, and sentiments....check out all of the New Releases HERE!

As soon as I heard the news that we could choose sentiments and quotes as well as scripture verses for our stamp choice, I instantly picked "You Bless Me!" for mine! There are so many instances when I want to express how much someone has blessed my life, and an ordinary "Thank You" stamp just doesn't say enough. These "three little words" say even more than thank you! I "heart" my new stamp!!! :)


For my card sample, I am using my sentiment stamp from the new "Sentiments Collection". I started by stamping the frame from Mini Tags 2 in bright pink, then stamped "You Bless Me!" inside, using a Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner to line it up straight, then the tag was cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3. Most of the card was finished when I decided it needed a pink 2-Step Butterfly to coordinate with the tag. I stamped the solid butterfly background in bright pink, then, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, overstamped the butterfly outline in dark brown, used a Glitter Pen to highlight the butterfly wings, then cut out the butterfly using the "Grunge Butterfly Die".


Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Sentiments Collection', Mini Tags 2, 2-Step Butterflies;
Cardstock: Stampin Up Early Espresso (brown), Very Vanilla;
Designer Paper: Glitz 'Pretty In Pink';
Ink: Stampin Up Pixie Pink and Early Espresso, Stazon Timber Brown;
Accessories: ODBD 'Grunge Butterfly Die', Zva Creative Pearls, 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist, Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3, May Arts Brown Satin Ribbon and Ivory Satin Trim, Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Border Punch, Stampin Up Paper Piercer and square template, foam tape, Spica Glitter Pen, Stamp-a-ma-jig Stamp Positioner;
Size: 6 x 4-1/2.
