Our Daily Bread designs February New Release Blog Hop!

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs February New Release Blog Hop!!  If you have hopped here from Dawn's amazing blog, you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the ODBD Blog and start at the beginning....we sure don't want you to miss a thing!  Hop from blog to blog, check out the new sets and samples from the "Breadsticks", leave a comment for each, then head back to the ODBD Blog and let us know that you have completed the hop.  The hop will run until Saturday, 2/2/13 at 8 pm EST.  There will be three gift certificates for stamps awarded.....one for $20, one for $40, and one for $60...woo hoo!!!

The set I chose to use for the hop is Chalkboard - John's, which includes two amazing scripture verses surrounded by just the right amount of beautiful flourishes and "winged things".....love this set!!!!

Our Daily Bread designs "Chalkboard - John's"

For my sample, I wanted to show that these beautiful chalkboard stamps may be used with any color ink plus embossing techniques as well as the chalkboard technique. The stamp was inked up with Versamark, stamped on white cardstock, then heat embossed with "Enamel" embossing powder to give it a ceramic look.  The image was then sponged with bright yellow and orange inks (to match the Bo Bunny designer paper) and the excess was wiped off of the embossed part....this is called "Emboss Resist". It's hard to see in this photo, but the bottom white panel was stamped with the "Small Butterfly Background" stamp to coordinate with the butterflies on the main panel.

In case you missed my sneak peek with the Chalkboard - Amazing Grace set, I thought I would share it again here in order to show that you can achieve more than one look with the same type of stamp!

love the chalkboard, Stamps are so pretty

Sabrina said...

That's the set that gas popped straight up to the top of my wishlist! I love the fact that they stamp black (or any other colour, as you have so wonderfully shown) because stamping in white is not my favourite, and embossing with white is even less so.

JKB said...
