Jan. ODBD Release BLOG HOP!

Faith-bookmark-card1

Hello everyone! Welcome to the January Our Daily Bread designs Release "Taking a Leap of Faith" Blog Hop! If you got here from Angie's Blog then you are in the right place! If not you should go to the Our Daily Bread designs Blog to start from the beginning so you don't miss anything! The Hop will run from 8am Eastern Jan. 1 to 8pm Jan 2. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Jan. 3. There will be 5 prizes. Kelley has very generously offered to give five prizes of YOUR CHOICE of one set!!! The prizes are hidden on various blogs along the hop, so it is important that you visit and comment on each one!
Align Center
Here is what you have to do to be eligible to win one of these great prizes:

Visit and leave a comment on each blog on the hop, then return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment:

* Telling us you completed the hop and noting any blogs you could not comment on

* Answer the question that is posted on the ODBD Blog (You only need to answer on the ODBD blog)

* Be sure to check the ODBD Blog on Jan 3rd to see if you won! :)

All of us in the Bread Basket have had so much fun playing with these new stamps and die cut! Who doesn't love butterflies? They are symbolic of HOPE and new life... and they are one of God's most beautiful creations! You will love the sentiments and the font on the Faith set! Just wait until you see how many Spellbinders dies you can fit these sentiments in! Don't delay.. I think these will sell out quickly!


Faith-bookmark-2

So Now on to my card details:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs "Full of Grace Series - Faith" (sentiment), "Butterfly Corner"," Butterfly" and "matching Die Cut", "Faith" (Butterfly design on Bookmark).
Card Stock: Bazzill, Gina K Pure Luxury Layering Weight
Designer Paper: Prima Fairy , Pink Vellum
Ink: Memento, Our Daily Bread designs Olive Green
Accessories: May Arts Silk Ribbon, K&Co Crystal Bling, ODBD Tag Die Cut, Ornare piercing template and tools

I colored the butterfly corner image with Copics and then cut out. I cut a piece of pink vellum and adhered it with Vellum adhesive to give the softness to the design to make the sentiment on the bookmark pop more. I attached the corner to the card top making a pocket for my sentiment bookmark. I made the bookmark using the ODBD Tag Die to cut the shape on the top, then just didn't run it all the way though the machine so I could hand cut a longer length of cs. I matted the bookmark with Black and used May Arts silk ribbon for the ties at the top.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!

From here, hop on over to Debi's Blog to see what inspiration she has for you! Thanks for stopping and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Oh and PLEASE if you have not entered my drawing for My BLOG CANDY, please do so HERE!

Happy New Year, Grace~

What an absolutely gorgeous set you made! I love how you made the corner piece...the perfect coloring, and the use of vellum. I love to use vellum on things. I almost never see that it is used by others, however. It looks great! All of the paper piercing was definately worth the work! It looks phenomenal!

I love the butterflies and that Sentiment is so meaningful. And, you are the best at perfectly placed jewels! These are great pieces, my friend.

Hoping this year is awesome for you!
