By way of announcement, I just want to let you know that after about 4 years as DT Coordinator, and over 4 years on the ODBD Design Team, I am stepping down from the DT Coordinator position. This will give me less time on the computer and hopefully help with my pain levels. I hope to stay on the team for as long as possible, but one step at a time is the way we walk right now.
So anyway... with that said... Kelley has decided that once again this month instead of a blog hop, she has posted the DT projects on the ODBD Blog, but the details for the cards are all on our own blogs. Kelley will be choosing one random winner from one of the designers blog comments to receive a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store to be used towards the purchase of stamps. You have until August 3, 2013 at 9:00pm EST to leave your comments on the designers blogs. The Winner will be posted on the ODBD Blog on August 4th, so be sure to check back there to see if you have won.
So now for my card detail... for my first card I used the set Peaches. I stamped the image and sentiment on the jar label with Memento, and colored with Copics. I cut the image with a past die release, the ODBD Elegant Ovals. The designer paper is Websters Pages Park Dr and the ribbon is from the same collection. I have sponged everything with Distress Ink. I popped up the paper pieced jar lid on dimentionals and adhered my image to a cork layer. I embellished with the new ODBD Custom Foliage Dies and Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms for the little flowers. The doily is from my kitchen :) and is also sponged for a bit of distressing. Tiny pearls embellish the flowers and finish it off.
For my second project, I created this card, using another new set, Strawberries, as well as a past release Gingham Background. The image is stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics. The sentiment is cut with the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die, the image is cut with the ODBD Elegant Ovals, and the Flourish embellishment is from the newly released ODBD Foliage Dies (LOVE!!!). My mat for the image is embossed with a basket weave folder and cut with a SB Lattice Rectangle from Craft. The top punch is EK Success, also from craft. The white layer on the bottom is an MS card pack I bought a while ago to use just as cards, but I find that layering them on to my cards makes a very pretty layer as well. The bow is seam binding with a hand crocheted flower added.
Here are the sets and new dies used for these cards:
