ODBD July New Releases!!

Hello, everyone!  This is July New Release day for Our Daily Bread designs!!!! This month's theme is weddings and anniversaries..... check out all of the new fabulous stamps plus a new custom die set HERE on the ODBD Blog or at the ODBD Store.

July is the beginning of a new term for the Breadsticks (ODBD designers) and there are a few changes to mention.  Sadly, three of my "Sistah Sticks" will be leaving the team:  Betty Wright, Connie McCotter, and Kathy Roney......we will greatly miss them!  Here are some other changes: Audrey Hiltke and myself are moving to the Alumni Team; Deb Saaranen is moving and will be back with us in a couple of months;  Cathy McCauley is moving to the Design Team; and Cheryl Scrivens is joining our Challenge Team.

This month, there is no "blog hop" per se, however, the same rules apply in order to qualify for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the ODBD store........comment on each of the designers' blogs and one of those comments will be randomly chosen.You have until Wednesday, July 3rd at 9 pm EST to leave your comments. Here is a list of participating Breadsticks:

For my first sample, I am featuring the "To The Lovebirds" set along with the ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders "Bird Cage and Banner Dies" set. The scripture verse is from the "Love Scriptures" set.

ODBD "To The Lovebirds", "Bird Cage and Banner Dies" Card designer Angie Crockett

First thing, I used the ODBD Quatrefoil Pattern Die with light gray cardstock for the background and popped it up with foam tape over some ivory cardstock. The bird-cage was stamped in pink, overstamped with a scripture from "Love Scriptures", cut out with the custom die from "Bird Cage and Banner Dies", hand-cut the mat from dark gray cardstock, then used a hole punch at the top so that some ribbon could be threaded  through.  The Cheery Lynn Designs "Victorian Romance Flourish" was cut out of ivory, then sponged with pink to match the cage.  The card was sprayed multiple times with "Pearl" Glimmer Mist, but like usual, is a bit camera shy.

My second sample features the "Anniversary Blessings" set...... I LOVE this set.....so beautiful and elegant!!!

ODBD "Anniversary Blessings"

The release of this set comes at a perfect time.....my oldest brother and his wife will be celebrating their 30th in a few weeks.  This set is so gorgeous that it was easy to go the CAS (clean and simple) route.  The cake and topper were stamped on the Spellbinders "Floral Ovals" largest die cut, sponged edges with light purple, colored the hearts in the cake with light purple and then highlighted them with a glitter pen.

Blessings,
