Feature Focus - ODBD Elegant Oval Dies

Hi there! Today, over at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog is the monthly "Feature Focus" post. This month's featured item is the ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders "Elegant Ovals" Die Set. Several of my Design Team sisters and I created some new samples using the dies and coordinating stamps too......check out all of the samples HERE!

My first sample features the "Elegant Oval" dies along with the "Eternity" stamp set.  This is a birthday card for my boss.  I stamped the frame twice in navy, cut out the inside shape of one so that there was a 3-d element...the quote from "Eternity" was stamped, the edges sponged then paper pierced (freehand), then popped up with foam tape.  The bottom piece was scored with my Scor-buddy in order to get a bead-board look.  To help with the masculine look, some denim ribbon was added.

Card 'Ingredients': 
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs "Eternity";
Cardstock: Stampin Up 'Night of Navy' and 'Whisper White';
Designer Paper: Basic Grey 'Marjolaine';
Accessories: ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders 'Elegant Ovals" Die Set, Zva Creative navy pearls, paper piercer and template, Scor-buddy, foam tape, sponge dauber, Stampin Up Denim Ribbon;
Size: A2.

My next sample is a birthday card for my nephew, on which I used the "Elegant Ovals" die set for the image panel and mat.  In order to get a close mat, I used the largest die to cut the white panel, then I traced the same die onto the Not Quite Navy cardstock and cut it by hand.  Once the image and scripture from "You Are The Potter" were stamped, I added paper piercing and foam tape to the back to pop it up.  The twine was braided along with some copper cord in order to match the copper brads and lovely rich colors of the designer paper.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: You Are The Potter;
Cardstock: Stampin Up 'Not Quite Navy' and 'Whisper White';
Designer Paper: Bo Bunny 'Weekend Market';
Accessories: ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders 'Elegant Ovals' Die Set, Copper Brads, Copper Cord, Twine, Paper piercer and template, sponge daubers, foam tape;
Size: A2.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Have a wonderfully blessed day!!
