Hi, everyone! Today marks the 12th anniversary for Divinity Designs LLC (formerly known as Our Daily Bread designs)! I joined the design team just seven months after the company was started and I can't believe how time has flown! It's been exciting to see how just a few stamps sets has turned into a full line of stamps, dies, stencils, embossing folders, and paper collections!!! It has been a blessing to be a part of this family for so many years. Now, on to the celebration!!! To see all of the beautiful stamps, dies, and new paper collection, plus some awesome designer samples, please click HERE. If you follow us on social media, there may be some free goodies in your future!
For my two card samples today, here are the products featured:
For my first card, I tried a new-to-me stained glass technique to show off the awesome new Floral Background Die and one of the sentiments from "I Believe". It's not a difficult technique, but it takes several layers of cardstock. First, I cut two white cardstock panels and adhered them together using my Xyron Sticker Maker. I used the Floral Background Die to emboss only on this double panel so that I could see where to color. All of the colored sections you see were water-colored; once dry, a panel was die cut with the Floral Background Die and adhered to frame the colors. Then, Glossy Accents were used to coat all of the colored area (make sure the glaze touches the framing for a more complete look.) Another frame was die cut and adhered to give more dimension. You could add even more layers but I felt that it was good as is. Since I didn't want to cover up the background, the sentiment from "I Believe" was stamped onto vellum and cut out with the Pierced Circles Dies and glued just inside the border of the circle. The stained glass frame was adhered to a turquoise panel which was cut out with the Matting Rectangle Die, then adhered to the card which was cut out with the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Die.
My next card features another sentiment from "I Believe", a gorgeous pattern from the Watercolor Paper Pad, along with the following items which were previously released: Center Step A2 with Layers Dies, Inspiration Words Dies ("Believe"), Alphabet Flags Dies (the letter "I"), Ornamental Crosses Dies, Bitty Borders Dies, and Double Stitched Rectangles Dies. The sentiment was gold-embossed onto vellum, cut out with the Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, then turned into a sticker with a Xyron. The additional die cuts were cut twice (violet and metallic gold) and layered for added dimension.
Thanks for stopping by!
