A Special Christmas Pre-release!

 Today through October 31st, Our Daily Bread Designs  is offering Pre-Order Bundle Specials on the November 2017 Release!   All November 2017 Bundle pre-orders will begin shipping on November 1, 2017 or sooner.   Please see the ODBD Blog for more details.  Please note that the individual items from the November 2017 Release will not be available for purchase until November 1st!

For my sample above, I used the new Winter Cardinal stamp set, Christmas Paper Collection 2017, and past releases: Pine Boughs, Lovely Leaves, Pincones, Small Bow, and Double Stitched Rectangles.  I stamped the image with Memento, colored with Copics and highlighted with the Copic white.  I die cut my greenery and pine cones and added stickles to each element as well as adding some to the image itself.  I stamped the sentiment and die cut it and the image with the Double Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies, and mounted it all on a piece of plaid paper from the new Paper pad. 

Here are links to the girls on today's hop. Hope you enjoy it!

Two more cards with the Oct. Release!


Hello friends!  I'm back with two more cards I made with the ODBD October release.  For this first card I used the new Be A Sunshine stamp set, and the Sunflower Die.  I also used Double Stitched Rectangles to cut almost all my panels.  Used the new Fall Favorites Paper Pack, as well as the Christmas Coordinating  2015 Paper Pack.  I added some loose burlap for a country feel, and tied the image panel with some gold twine.  The image is colored with Copics.  All the edges are distressed again for that country feel.

The second card below used the new Merry Christmas Caps Word Die, Pine Branches, Rounded Rectangles and Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles, as well as Merry Mosaics and the 2015 Coordinating Chrstmas Paper Pack.  I added a double cut of the Merry Christmas offsetting slightly for a shadow effect.  I sponged the edges of all my layers just a bit for contrast, and I added small pearls to the centers of the poinsettias which are also die cut twice for contrast.  It feels so good to have a couple Christmas cards done (for the release and today)!   Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to the ODBD October Release!

 Hello friends!  Welcome to the ODBD October release!  I cannot believe it is fall already, with Christmas just around the corner!!!   I am so happy that at ODBD we did not just hop right over fall and into Christmas.  We have a gorgeous sunflower set that I adore!  I love fall decorating, and the cool crisp feel of fall evenings.  I love the colors of fall, and this release really captures that feel.  However, we do have some new toys to get your Christmas card production under way as well!

As always, we do have prizes!  Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 Gift Code to the ODBD Website  just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until October 2, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on October 3rd so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Now for the details on my cards.  The card above is a very simple card to make and lies pretty flat for mailing.  For this card I used the new Merry Christmas Caps Die, the new Rounded Rectangles and Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles dies, the new Pine Branches Dies, the new Christmas Coordinating  2015 paper, as well as the past release Christmas 2015 paper, Lavish Layers Dies, Peaceful Poinsettia Dies, and Pinecones Dies.  I used some brushed gold paper for my letters, pine boughs and the backing of the pine cones.  The printed paper is from the 2015 Christmas Pack, and the green mat behind the ivory layer is from the Coordinating 2015 pack.  I added one gold pearl.

For the card below, I used one of ODBD's Book Fold card kits for my card base.  I cut layers of patterned paper from the gorgeous new Follow the Son Paper pack  and the new Fall Favorites Paper Pack for the inside as well as the front.  I stamped two of the beautiful Sunflower images from the Be a Sunflower Set, then colored with Copics and die cut with the matching Sunflower Die.  The sentiment is stamped from the same set, and cut with the new Rounded Rectangles dies

For the front, I used one of my colored and die cut sunflowers mounted on some black corrugated card stock, which I layered on one of my favorite papers from the Follow the Son Paper Pack.  Some twine and a little button finished it off.  I hope you like it!

So to recap, here are the NEW RELEASE products I featured today:
