"For The Love Of ODBD All Time Best Sellers" Blog Hop!

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to the "For the Love of ODBD All-Time Best Sellers" Blog Hop, hosted by our illustrious Alumni Team, and joined by some Design Team and Challenge Team members as well!

If you have hopped here from Silke's fabulous blog, you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the ODBD Blog so that you may start at the beginning .....we don't want you to miss a thing!  A complete link list is there, along with all of the deets you need for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the ODBD Store! You have until Wednesday, January 2nd (6 pm EST) to complete the hop. The winner will be announced at the beginning of our next hop.

I have chosen to use the "Little Things" set, from the Blessings Collection, to create two birthday cards, each showing a different style.  I LOVE how ODBD stamps provide you with a wide-open door so that you can create any style or project you can imagine!! 


My first sample is a little more elegant and rich, using Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio Three die set to frame the quote from "Little Things", along with some gorgeous designer paper and matching 3d butterfly which I picked up at a stamp show last year.


My second sample proves that you can get so many different looks from one stamp set. I chose the Honeycomb Background to accompany the "Little Things" set, along with the Prima 'Sunkiss' designer paper and gingham ribbon. The cut out and center popped up panel were cut out with the Spellbinders Blossom 3 die set.


Now, the moment you've been waiting for.....on with the hop!!!  Your next stop will be with the amazingly talented Jan Keen!  Enjoy the rest of the hop!  See you next time!

Blessings,
