A Look Back at the ODBD August Release!

ODBD Stamps: Peaches, Garden Mini, Blue Ribbon Winner, designed by Grace Nywening

Hello friends!  Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs.

I decided to can some peaches for my sample (lol) and then I shared a favorite "quick" recipe for Peach Cobbler.  I used Blue Ribbon Winner for my canning jar, along with the Custom Canning Jar Die to cut it. I then stamped the small peach image from the Garden Mini set twice on a sticky note and cut them out to use as masks.  To "can" my peaches, I didn't want the leaves and stems in my jar, so I used a T Holtz marker to color just the outline of the peach, and began stamping on the jar image, using the masks to mask off prior stampings so I could overlap  images without having the overlapping lines show. This technique gives you the opportunity to have one front image, and then add more images "behind" it without overlapping lines. I colored all my peaches and jar with Copics.  To finish off my canning jar, I stamped the word "Peaches" from the Peaches Set on a label of designer paper from my Basic Grey Songbird pad.

The card itself is made on a base of craft, and the designer paper is MME Stella Rose.  Because I wanted to include a recipe with this card, I used the ODBD Recipe Card Lines stamp and the Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die to create a recipe card on craft card stock.  I used the Peach Cobbler stamp from the Peaches Set and hand wrote my recipe, and added a colored peach from the Garden Mini Set.  The pocket that holds my recipe is die cut with a Spellbinders A2 Bracket Die

I added some lace trim and small lace tied around the jar lid, and a small piece of dark burlap.
