Hello friends! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs June Release Blog Hop!
If you got here from Dawn's Fabulous Blog, you are in the right place! If not you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread designs Blog and start from there so you don't miss any chances to win free stamps!!!
All the sticks in the bread basket have been having soooo much fun with all the fantastic new sets!!! If you have not had a chance to see the release, you can see it HERE. This month's release is one of my all time favorite releases... I think you'll agree when you see all the inspiration on this hop!
Here are the basics of the hop:
- Hop will run from 8:00 am EDT June 1 to 8:00 pm June 2
- Winners will be announced on June 3 on the ODBD Blog
The prizes this month will be done a little differently!
- There will be three prizes of $20.00 Gift Certificates to the ODBD store for stamps, hidden on three different blogs along the hop. No one will know where they are! The winners will be randomly chosen from the COMMENTERS on these three blogs!
- The GRAND PRIZE of the entire Bread Basket Bundle will be drawn from the comments left here on this post, from all who tell us they completed the hop and which set is their most favorite!
I wanted to play along in the Moxie Fab World Gingham Challenge, hence my gingham ribbon!
I created a gift set including a card I gave a sneak peek of (one post below), and then I altered a little wicker picnic basket I purchased at Michael's.
The basket was sponged lightly with THoltz distress inks in Scattered Straw, Frayed Burlap and Bundled Sage. The sentiment, little picnic basket image and inside decorative element are from the Thank You Sentiments set. I also stamped one of the pretty borders from a past release, Fleur de Lis Borders on the top of the lid. Outside this border I sponged with Scattered Straw Distress Ink, and inside I used Bundled Sage. The sentiment was cut with a Spellbinders Tags 5 and sponged with distress inks, then tied on to the handle of the basket with bakers twine. The image was stamped with Memento ink, then colored with Copics and cut out, and adhered to the center of the frame. To add a little decoration to the basket I added a Spellbinder's Lace Doily Accents border.
On the inside of the cover is one of the pretty little decorative elements in the Thank You Sentiments set. With some yummy strawberry candies inside, this will make a fun little gift.
Briefly, in case you didn't catch my sneak peek post, the card used the Thank You set for the image, and the Thank You Sentiments set for the sentiment. The image was colored with copics, and the red dotted panel is actually 100% cotton fabric which I cut with a Spellbinders Lacey Rectangle die, using my Grand Calibur. It cut like butter! Card base is Gina K, Black mat is SU!, Designer Paper is My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Rosy. The gingham ribbon for both projects is from Hobby Lobby. The doily border is the Spellbinders Lacy Doily Accents set.
Now, from here hop to the sweet and talented Angie!
