Grow in Grace and Amazing Grace Sneak Peeks

Happy Friday everyone!

Today I have another Sneak Peek for you of two more of the wonderful sets being released by Our Daily Bread Designs on July 1! I used the stand alone pop up card as my submission for The Next Level's project for this week. The card itself was easy to put together and I really had fun making it. Believe it or not, it does fold totally flat and fits in an envelope!

The July releases at Our Daily Bread Design are so special... and I have to say, these two are among my favorites. Did I mention that this release is not for 2 sets, 3 sets... but 5 new sets, and they are related... so this card uses the Image and sentiment from one set called "Grow in Grace" and the Sheet Music which is stamped lightly on the bg of my image panel is from "Amazing Grace". How could I not love these??? I'm sorry my sheet music doesn't show in the photo but it's there.

Anyhoo....My base is Bazzill Textured CS and I used GPW for a swiss dot embossed panel on the pop up part. I stamped the beautiful Dogwood image and the sentiment on GPW with Archival Jet Black. I stamped several extra flowers and I watercolored them with Our Daily Bread Design's new product... fantastic Inks... more about them soon! I also used Sahara Sand, Regal Rose and a White Signo Gel Pen. I sponged my colors on my GPW on the matting for my image and on the sentiment panel, as well as another piece that I used to cut out my scrolly QuicKutz die cuts. I had cut my sentiment with my long rectangle nestie and left it in the die while I sponged to give the framed effect. On the Label 4 panel that my Dogwood is mounted on I lightly overstamped the Sheet Music from "Amazing Grace" in Sahara Sand. I wanted only a light hint and that is what I got, so the photo doesn't show it at all. Sorry about that! I then spritzed all the sponged paper with Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold, and let dry. I cut out lots of dogwood blooms, curled the petals on my piercer and used dimensionals to adhere to my card. I added stickles to the centers of the flowers (which don't show) but I really do like how this came out. I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek... I am so loving these new sets I'm having trouble wanting to use anything else right now!!! LOL!

Have a blessed weekend!
