Hello friends! Can you believe it's August already? Time seems to be just racing by!!! I had family visiting much of July, and I also had a lot of canning to do as the whole garden seemed to need attention as soon as my family went back home.
However, believe it or not... it IS August 1st, and that means another new release from Our Daily Bread Designs! ... And a new release means more chances to win gift certificates for ODBD stamps!

For my first project, I chose the newly released Boho Blessings
set for my butterfly image and my sentiment. I used a white Neenah base, layered that with a pretty blue sheet of paper from the ODBD Christian Faith Paper Collection,
then a white die cut layer, using the new Boho Background Die
. For my focal point, I used the new Stitched Oval die
, embossed with a past release, the Sunburst Background Die
, and I matted the stitched oval with a new die from the Ovals Dies set
, which also uses paper from the same paper collection. I stamped the butterfly image from the Boho Blessings set with Brocade Blue ink, and die cut it with a past release, Fancy Fritillary Die
. I stamped the butterfly image again on vellum, and heat embossed the design with Kaleidoscope embossing powder, and die cut with the same die. I love how it sparkles and pulls the blue pattern through, yet gives a filmy shimmery layer on top.
I embellished with some pearl flourishes and a tiny blue ribbon, attaching the Thanks sentiment, which is cut with a tag from the ODBD Custom Mini Tags dies
For my next card
I used the new Boho Faith
set for my image and sentiment. I stamped the image with VersaMark and heat embossed wtih Stampendous Pearl Luster Rubelite embossing powder. Although my photo does not show that it's embossed, in real life it's very pretty. I cut the image with the largest die in the ODBD Vintage Label Die
set, then I cut another from white, cut and slightly offset on both sides for a white mat effect. I did an emboss resist technique on the main panel using inks close in color to the design paper I had used (which also is from the same Christian Faith Paper Collection
used above). I used the new Faith, Hope & Love dies
to cut the work Faith out twice... once with white glitter paper, and once with white. I matted them together with a slight offset and positioned on the main panel. I used the ODBD Decorative Corner dies
to cut my white cross corner die cuts, and the ODBD Mini Tags dies
for my tag. I used a May Arts dual toned sheer ribbon and white pearls to embellish.
To recap: the NEW ODBD products I used today:
