ODBD September 1 Release Blog Hop


Hello everyone and welcome to Our Daily Bread design's Sept 1 release blog hop!

If you came here from Chris' blog, you are in the right place. If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog for the complete list of links. This month Kelley has introduced some really great new stamps and I really love them! Today I'm spotlighting her very first Background Stamp... it's called Brocade background. I also am spotlighting a sentiment from Peace, the second in her "Full of Grace" series, and this month's new frames, Brocade Frames. This card was made prior to the die cuts being available, but she is now carrying die cuts for these frames that will beautifully cut the outline of these gorgeous frames! So.... lots to see and since I'm last on the hop this month, I know you have already seen lots of beautiful inspiration along the way!

This month Kelley is giving away THREE Gift Certificates One for $15.00, One for $20.00 and One for $25.00 toward stamps at the ODBD Store! To make it a little more fun ... the prizes are hidden on three different blogs and you won't know which ones, so be sure to leave a comment on each DT blog, because three blog owners will be choosing a winner from their commenters now through Sept 2, 8pm Eastern! So grab your favorite beverage and enjoy the hop! Be sure to return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment there that you completed the hop and left comments for everyone, noting there if there were any you could not comment on. The hop will close at 8pm eastern tomorrow night (Sept 2). The winners will be announced Saturday on the ODBD Blog!

Here are the supplies I used on this card:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Brocade Background, Brocade Borders, Peace
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia, Mellow Moss, VersaMark Dazzle
Paper: Papertrey Dark Chocolate, SU! Mellow Moss & Very Vanilla
Accessories: Spellbinders Lattice Pendant, MS Lattice Mega Edge Punch, Nellie D Dies (corners), ribbon and trim from M's, Recollections pearls, Copics # G94 and BG000, Heat Embossing tools and Ranger Copper and Frosted Crystal Embossing Powders,

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed my project today. From here, hop back over to the ODBD Blog to leave your comment there that you visited and commented on each DT member, and good luck in the drawings! Have a blessed week!

Traci S. said...

Dear Grace,

What a wonderfully beautiful, rich and calming effect on one card! I love the earthy colors in this card. The ribbon and the rose trim under it is just so elegant sp lovely. Beautiful! The background is really what is intriguing me! Is that moss colored paper, with copper and crystal embossing powder on it? Using the Beautiful Brocade Background stamp? Did I guess it right? The effect is so fabulous, Grace. All of the colors, and the techniques make such a calm piece, that I believe should be framed.
(Of course, have I seen a card of yours that I didn't think needed sanding?) I just love Brocade, and these sets this month...are going to get the better of me!

I continue to pray Grace that you and your family are able to find the calm that I see in this card. A bigger calm, coming from the Dear Lord. I pray that you all are leaning on the Him for comfort, and in some cases to hold each of you up, when you are too tired to get up and see people and settle things for one more moment. Go to Him. I know you know. But, you are in it. That's what friends are for sometimes, to remind us of the obvious! You are loved!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful art even when you are going through so much!

He IS Able,
Traci S.

Mickie said...

I could hardly wait to get to the end to view your card because I knew it would be a beauty. Such a wonderful work of art. I pray the Lord is with you during your trying time.
