August ODBD Release!

ODBD Stamps: Peaches, designed by Grace Nywening
Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs August release!!!

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.

ODBD new August stamps and dies are like that 'coming home' feeling! So warm, like Grandma's house. We are in the canning season now, and I was immediately attracted to your cards. You did such a marvelous job! Let's always give thanks to our Father for His bountiful blessings that fall like dew upon us-new every morning!

So very sorry to hear that you are in pain, but I admire that you are doing the right thing to take care of yourself. Just said a prayer for you.

Love both of your cards....you always add so much artistic loveliness! The plaid and gingham look wonderful together, and cork really sets off the main element. Love the many ways you added depth and texture to the second card...including that sweet crocheted blossom. Thanks so much for sharing, and I do pray that you find relief from the pain you are experiencing.

Sorry to hear of your difficulties - I hope some rest helps you manage your pain. At least you have this as an outlet and how much fun is that?!? I love both of your cards. The dimension and variation in texture is fantastic. I especially like the use of cork on the first card, it contrasts so well with the lacy texture of the doily.

Sue D said...

Great cards designs and I like your use of cork.

Lisa Somerville said...

Fabulous colors and designs to showcase the new stamps and dies!

As my kitchen table is piled high with jam getting ready for the Faisal, I was happy to see the new pickles and strawberry and can jars stamps and dies. I give gifts of jam to my past clients so this months's stamps are really exciting as they will make great gifts cards with the jam. Love your cards Grace,
