July Our Daily Bread Sneak Peek


Hello everyone!

I'm so excited to be bringing you my first Sneak Peek at one of the Five New Sets being released by Our Daily Bread Designs beginning July 1st! You are going to love these sets!!! This set is called "Let us begin".

I used a base of Sahara Sand (which I stamped lightly in VersaMark with a Canvas BG stamp) , then layered Georgia Pacific White and then a textured Silver paper.. My Lotus corner image is heat embossed in silver on GPW, which is then sponged lightly with Sahara Sand and matted on another layer of GPW. The sentiment is stamped on GPW, which I cut with my square Nestie and left in the frame, embossed in silver and then more heavily sponged in Sahara Sand for a marble effect. I love the emboss resist technique... especially with these natural tones. When I removed my Nestie frame I had the white matting all done for me. For my flowers... I stamped the left one three times, the right one twice. I cut them out and popped up closer parts for depth. The scrolls are QuicKutz and are cut from Sahara Sand stamped with Canvas, and the mat for my Lotus image panel is punched at the bottom with an EK Success Punch. The ribbon is a shimmery silver edged sheer and the little charm says "made with love"... which I though was appropriate for Mother Teresa.

You have got to check out the whole design team as we all give you sneak peeks this week... these new sets are just incredible!!! The links are in my left side bar... check them out!!! Be sure to be here on July 1st! That's all I can say for now... but you won't want to miss it!!! :)
