February Release Blog Hop!

Our Daily Bread designs, Let the Earth Rejoice, Earth's Gladdest Day, designed by Grace Nywening

 
Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Design's February Release Blog Hop! If you got here from our Sweet Sandee's blog, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don't miss a thing.
 
I am excited about this month's stamps, and have had a blast playing with them.  Before I share my card, let me just give you the details of the hop:

  • The hop will run from  8am EST Feb 1 until 8pm EST Feb 2
  • Winners will be announced  on the ODBD Blog on Feb 3
  • There will be THREE prizes: One $20.00 Gift Certificate, One $40.00 Gift Certificate, and One $60.00 Gift Certificate  for STAMPS in the ODBD Store!!!
  • To qualify for one of these prizes, simply hop to each designer, leave a comment on each blog, and return to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop, noting if there were any problems  along the way.  That's it!  
Now on to my card....

I made a Z fold card using Let the Earth Rejoice, and Earth's Gladdest Day.  The base is 6 1/4" x 11 1/2" and I scored at 4 1/4" and 7 7/8". The purple designer paper is from Kaisercraft Lilac Ave dp and embossed with a Craftwell embossing folder, then inked with Vintage Violet.   I stamped the image from Let the Earth Rejoice  with Memento and colored with Copics, cut out with Spellbinders Classic Circles Large.  I also used a Spellbinders Lattice Pendent as a mat for my main image.  The bow is May Arts Silk.



 I stamped the sentiment and cut with SB Antique Frames and Accents.



For the middle panel, I stamped the image from Earth's Gladdest Day in Vintage Violet and left the rest of the panel white so a message could be added there. 

My back panel is simply a piece of green dp from Kaisercraft Lilac Ave. pack, and added a Spellbinders Fancy Lattice.  I wanted that lattice to show from the front of the card, but I liked the entire panel done with is, and with plenty of room on the middle panel for a message, I decided to use the whole die cut.

Here are the new sets I used:

Hi, Grace! Your card is over the top! The Z fold showcases your work perfectly. I love the image (beautifully colored) and displayed on a circle with the lattice pendant behind it. The verse you chose says it all!
AND, for the umpteenth time, I want you to know how much I enjoy the music...

seamom said...

OOPS! I was so taken with your first card that I almost missed the 2nd one. The chalkboard look is new and quite interesting. You have displayed the verse panel so beautifully on the floral background with a touch of gold and a big bow. WONDERFUL!

Your Z fold card is stunning. I love the surprise of this fold. The chalkboard card is also very appealing but nothing can beat the crocuses. They were a special flower for my mother before she passed away last year and I think of her whenever I see them.
