Here are the new and previously released items used in my projects for today:

ODBD School Bus Driver ODBD Pennant Swag Alphabet

ODBD Sunday School Teacher ODBD Custom Crosses Dies

ODBD Custom Pennant Flags Dies ODBD Custom Bookmarks Dies

ODBD Custom Ornate Ovals Dies ODBD Custom Deco Border Dies

ODBD Custom Pierced Squares Dies ODBD Custom Squares Dies

Artistic Outpost Vagabond Treasures Paper Collection ODBD Americana Quilt Paper Collection

For my first card, I used the fun new 'School Bus Driver' set, but transformed the 'School Bus' into a 'Church Bus' by stamping individual letters with the 'Pennant Swag Alphabet' set.  After the letters were stamped, the rectangle was cut out then the edges were lined with a black marker.  The bus was stamped on red cardstock and again on white so that the various pieces could be cut out and paper-pieced together.  The stop sign was white embossed on white, then colored with a red marker, cut out and adhered. Red and yellow gemstones were added for the lights at the top.  The fun designer paper is from the ODBD Americana Quilt Paper Collection; the panels were cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Squares Dies and ODBD Custom Squares Dies.

Next up is a bookmark and card which was created with the new 'Sunday School Teacher' set and the coordinating ODBD Custom Crosses Dies.

I fell in love with this designer paper from the Artistic Outpost 'Vagabond Treasures' Paper Collection, so I based my color scheme around it.  The cross and sentiment from 'Sunday School Teacher' were heat embossed with espresso powder onto ivory cardstock.  The cross was cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Crosses' Dies; the sentiment panel was cut from the ODBD Custom 'Ornate Ovals Dies'; both were popped up with foam tape. Dark brown embroidery thread was braided for both the card and bookmark.  The ODBD Custom Deco Border Die was cut from ivory and sponged with rust and brown.

For the bookmark, the same piece of designer paper was used with the ODBD Custom Bookmarks Dies; the mat was trimmed by hand.  As with the card, the scripture and cross were heat embossed. Instead of using a brad for the center of this cross, I used a metallic cut out from a previous project so that the bookmark would be flat inside the Bible or whichever book the recipient chooses to read.

I love the idea of giving a Sunday school teacher a card made just for them. I think the cross is beautiful and the colors chosen for it make the card look so elegant! Thanks for these great cards!

Such a beautiful job! I really love the detail on the bus, you made it come to life and your paper piecing is so much better than mine. The bookmark card is divine (pun intended). Very well done and appropriate for a religious theme. Jut beautiful! TFS!

I love how you made the school bus a church bus. It is perfect. You have given me the idea it could also be a VBS Bus or Activity Bus. Thank you for making me think beyond the initial image.

I also like the cross samples you created. The bookmark would be great as a gift for the members of my Bible Journal group or my Bible Study group when I next lead.

Thank you again for the great ideas.
