Our Daily Bread designs Jan. New Release and Blog Hop



 
Welcome to the First Our Daily Bread designs Blog Hop of 2010! If you got here from Kathy's Blog,  you are in the right place! If not, you might want to go back to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and start the hop from there!

We are kicking off the new year with the release of three new sets, perfect for Baptisms, Confirmation, and New Baby cards! Three blessed hoppers will be chosen randomly to receive One Set of THEIR CHOICE! All you have to do to be eligible to win is complete the hop, leaving comments on each blog and returning to the ODBD Blog and leaving your answer to the question there by Monday, Jan. 4 at 8PM EST. The question will be posted on the ODBD blog, but here's a tip.. as you are hopping along, take note of your favorite set and what you like best about it! Did I mention there will beTHREE WINNERS?!!

One of the big changes that we are so excited about is that Our Daily Bread designs has accepted a position as a Member Company on Splitcoaststampers!

Please visit the ODBD Welcome Forum and leave a comment by January 10! If you do, you will be entered into a drawing to win a $50.00 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store! We have lots of things planned including Challenges and a special Prayer Request area!  I  hope to chat with you over on the ODBD Forum on SCS!

Speaking of Challenges,  we will be having a weekly challenge! The weekly challenge will be posted on the SCS Forum as well as the ODBD Blog.   That means more prizes and awards, and fun for all!!!  More on that shortly... stay tuned to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and the SCS Forum for further details. For now... just be sure to be back on Jan 9 when our first Challenge of the New Year will kick off!

OK... now on to my project:
This picture really needs to be enlarged (click to enlarge) to be appreciated... I just could not get a good photo of it!  I had gotten this beautiful frame from Hallmark when they were on sale and I knew there would be a perfect time to use it.  This seemed the perfect time!  I used parts of two new released sets from Our Daily Bread designs: Confirmation, and Baptism / Confirmation Verses.  I stamped the image and sentiment on Papertrey Vintage Cream with Brilliance Platinum Planet ink.  It's beautiful ink... silvery, yet not as strong as silver... almost a champagne cast to it.  I love it but it sure is hard to photograph!!!  LOL!

The designer paper is SEI "Chocolate" and it's also a shimmery grayish silvery color with a touch of gold.  I can't capture the shimmer at all!  I used a Spellbinder's Lattice Edge Die Cut to cut Bazzill Gray and trimmed the image with ZVA Creative Pearls. 

I hope you are enjoying the blog hop today, and that you will be inspired by all the possibilities of these new sets!  Thank you for stopping by!

From here hop to Chris to see what great  inspiration she has for you today!

Have fun hopping, and Happy New Year from the Our Daily Bread designs Bread Basket!
