Hi, everyone! Welcome to the new release party for Our Daily Bread designs! To see all of the new stamps and dies, more designer samples, and prize info, check out this post!
Here are the new and previously released items featured in my projects today:
My first project is a diorama card. I used to make these from scratch and it was very time consuming with all of the measuring and cutting. Now, the ODBD Custom Diorama with Layers Dies set cuts all of the pieces perfectly plus gives instructions on how to assemble it.....woo hoo!!!! Once assembled, the diorama folds to fit into an A6 size envelope...pretty amazing! I used burgundy cardstock to cut out the diorama frame, City Skyline border and Oval Die (mat) for the scripture verse. All of the white layers (Icicle Border, Snow Crystals, Curvy Slopes, and windows of the buildings) were cut out of Shimmery White cardstock....the camera did not reveal the shimmer unfortunately. Both the snowflake paper, scripture panel and backdrop to the city scene were all from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2015. The scripture verse stamped onto the ODBD Custom Pierced Oval is from the 'Christmas Card Scriptures' set. Tiny yellow gemstones were added to coordinate with the gold tones in the paper.
Two borders were cut with the ODBD Custom Icicle Border Die....one was adhered to the inside and one to the outside of the diorama.
Next up is a nameframe which I made for my niece's birthday, using the new ODBD Custom Cloud Borders Dies, ODBD Custom Neighborhood Border Die, ODBD Custom Large Letters Dies, and the tiny hearts from the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies set. The gingham paper used for the letters and houses is from the ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection. To create the hillside, the Neighborhood Border was cut from the same piece of green cardstock twice. I just lined up the die with the first cut and used temporary tape to hold it in place for the 2nd cut. The die was used twice with the gingham designer paper, then the little houses were trimmed by hand and glued on top of the green panel. Since the trees were already green, I just highlighted them with markers. I used the same resizing technique with the clouds border so that it would reach across the frame in one continuous panel.
Here is a matching birthday card to go with the framed gift. I used the same ingredients as the frame, plus the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies, 'st' from the ODBD Custom Numbers Dies, and the HB sentiment from the ODBD Custom Happy Birthday Dies set. Once the scene was adhered together, the panel was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies.
Thanks so much for hanging out with us today!
Have a happy, blessed October!!
