Here are the new and previously released items from ODBD which I have used for my samples today:
My first card started as a shaped circle card (with the fold un-cut at the top); a small strip was trimmed and adhered across the top edge then the baker's twine camouflaged the added strip. The bottom edge of the card base was trimmed straight across. Two of the clown fish from the 'Deep Waters' set were fussy cut out of the underwater stamp scene. The coral was cut from the ODBD Custom 'Fancy Foliage' Dies and the other plant-life was cut from the ODBD Custom 'Asters and Leaves' Dies. Two little heart pearls and some glimmer mist was added as a finishing touch.
My second card features the same stamp set, 'Deep Waters', but this time I made a shaker card. When you order stamps from Our Daily Bread designs, the cling-mount stamps are on a clear acrylic sheet, right? Did you know that those are perfect to make windows on your projects? They die cut very easily....woo hoo!! So, I cut a navy blue frame with circle dies, added silver eyelets, then adhered the acrylic circle to the back using Scor-tape. While the window was face down, several layers of foam tape were added around the edges, then beads were added, the foam tape was stripped and the image panel was adhered to the back to seal everything in. Since I had to use several layers of foam tape so that the beads could move around, the shaker was inset into the white panel which was embossed with a striped folder. Paper piercing, silver brads, and denim ribbon were added as finishing touches.
Thanks so much for hanging out with us today!
