Our Daily Bread designs June New Release Blog Hop!

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs June New Release Blog Hop!  If you have hopped here from Kathy's amazing blog, you are in the right place.  If not, please head to the ODBD Blog and start from the beginning....we don't want you to miss a thing!  Hop to each designer's blog, then head back to the ODBD Blog and let us know that you have finished.  You have until Sunday, June 2nd at 8 pm EDT to complete the hop.  There will be four winners for this hop....one each of a $15, $20, $30, and $40 gift certificate toward stamps at the ODBD Store. (Gift certificates must be used during the month of June.)  The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on June 3rd.

For my first project sample today, I have combined the "Precious Girl" set along with the "Children's Prayers" set.  The background scene was stamped with the "Bookmarks - Trees" set and framed with the ODBD Window Die Set.

ODBD "Precious Girl"

ODBD "Children's Prayers"

I started out by laying out the stamps I wanted to use to see what size to cut my designer paper and cardstock.  Once the main shape was cut, I traced one of the Labels 26 dies and cut the ends by hand, then used a Circle Nestabilities Spellbinders die to cut out the hole for the hanger part. Once the window was cut out, I used the shape to hand-trim the background scene's cardstock piece, which was colored with sponge daubers and ink pads, then dotted with a glitter pen to mimic a starry sky.

My next sample features the "Home of the Free" set, which is perfect for any kind of patriotic card.....Memorial Day, Independence Day, Father's Day, or to create cards to send to Operation Write Home for our soldiers perhaps.

ODBD "Home of the Free"

This one is a CAS (clean and simple) design.  The star was stamped across some designer paper, sponged the edges, added some burlap ribbon and navy pearls after stamping the sentiment at the bottom.

Here are two sneak peeks I shared throughout this past week, using "Precious Girl" and "Home of the Free":
