Our Daily Bread designs August New Release Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs August New Release Blog Hop!!!  This just might be our largest release....ever!  If you haven't seen all of the new sets, check out the New Release Post HERE.  There is a new ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders die set, seven stamp sets, and three new background stamps...wow!!

If you have hopped here from Sabrina's amazing blog, you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the ODBD Blog and start at the beginning....we don't want you to miss a thing!  The hop will run until Thursday, August 2nd at 8 pm EDT.  There will be six blessed winners of a free stamp set of choice...yay!!  In case you lose your way, there is a full link list on the ODBD Blog, plus, the rules of the hop are listed there as well!

For my sample today, I have used the new "Daisy Background", "Bookmarks-Trees", and "Bookmark Verses". The background was created using the "Stained Glass Technique".....the "Daisy Background" was stamped onto white vellum, then the backside of the vellum was colored with markers. I ran the vellum piece through my Xyron Sticker Maker, then adhered it to white cardstock, which also acted as a mat. The edges were paper pierced, then I used a black marker to do some "Faux Stitching" for a little added character.  The bookmark tag from "Bookmarks-Trees" and scripture from "Bookmark Verses" were stamped on white cardstock, then used the sponged cloud technique and sponged the outside green using masking. I cut around the outside edge of the stamped tag, then adhered to the black bookmark which was cut out with the "ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders 'Bookmarks' Dies".  I wanted to be able to tuck in the bookmark without creating a pocket, so I cut out two fences with the "ODBD Fence Die" (glued them together to make a taller fence!), glued the fence on both ends only, so that the tag could tuck in behind it.  The poly-twill ribbon and gingham ribbon were pleated using Scor-tape, then adhered to the fence. After adding some bows tied with a Bow Easy, plus some buttons, I decided it was "busy" enough and stopped there.

Angie, your book mark is my ultimate favorite! I want to paint it in every room! (fortunately, saner heads have prevailed in my house!) I love that you showed us the BG stamps -- I wondered how the weave would look and I definitely like it! I love your buttons on the daisy -- yup, feelin' the bread basket bundle on this one!

Just beautiful! I am loving these scripture stamps. The more I grow in the Lord, the more I want to remind myself with more spiritual things and HIDE THAT WORD IN MY HEART!

kathi17 said...

Both your cards are beautiful Angie. The flowers, happy buttons and fence are perfect for that beautiful bookmark and card. I never would have thought of using the fence as a pocket!

And the second one is gorgeous with those colors and that beautiful lace. Thank you for helping me to realize that I do want bookmarks after all!

Love your card and bookmark. Great ideas using the vellum and coloring on the back. Must try that. Love your second offering as well. My juices are flowing!

Both cards are lovely. I was not sure about those backgrounds - they seemed a little busy for me, but you sold me on them. I especially love the softness of the daisy BG and the stained glass effect. Well done.

kandisbecher@sbcglobal.net said...

I wasn't completely sold on the background stamp, until I was your cards. Very nice.

The card is cute, daisies are always fun. Thank you for the instructions about making the card, it's been a while since I've used vellum and I never remember to use my cloud mask. Thanks for the inspiration.

Conniecrafter said...

Oh I love your idea of using the fence for a pocket for your bookmark and when it is in use the card still looks lovely with that pretty background.

Caryn S said...

Both cards are lovely and you chose some wonderful color combinations.

Sonia said...

What great cards! I love them!

Tammy said...

Angie!!
Both of your creations today are yumminess!!! I love how you created a card, but yet the recipient gets a bonus that will be filled with special memories of you and the Lord :) This stamp and die set is P2----Precious n Powerful:) The way you colored it and added the gingham is the cherry on top:) You do such a super job:) On the second card---I LOVE the background stamp and the way you combined it with the lace and crocheted circle:) The background reminds me of almost a zebra print----I also really like the you laced the ribbon through your lace ---creating an optical illusion that the ribbon is lace through the circle, too:) And YES----He is my refuge and my fortress---my God in whom I trust:) Thank You Jesus:) Thank you Angie---for sharing and for shining His light into the world:) be blessed

Both of these cards are lovely, but my favorite is the second card. Not sure what the color name is but I just absolutely love it and the Biblical sentiment fits so well. The circle and the border combined with the colors makes this a favorite of mine.

Traci S. said...

Hi Angie~

What stunning cards! I just love the daisy card. I fell in love with the daisy background...you really did a sensational job it! The buttons, the faux stitching, paper piercing, and the postfence...all make an amazing background for one of my favorite Scriptures on the bookmark! Fabulous job!

And, I love how the background of the second card came out! I never imagined it like that. The doily background with the Psalm on it looks a bit like a sun with the bg looking like the sunrays coming from it. I just love the lace. These are both such eye-catching, fabulous cards, Angie! Love them!

He IS Able!
