For my first sample (above) I used two new sets: The Earth and Earth Verses. I love so many of the verses in this set, and this one I used is one of my favorites. You are the salt of the earth! This is taken from Matt. 5:13. I have been thinking a lot about salt lately, because I had some oral surgery and have to rinse my mouth out several times a day with warm salt water. Salt has many different uses, and cleansing and purifying are among them. Salt also is used to preserve and to flavor. As we all have experienced, salt, when consumed produces a thirst! When Jesus said "You are the Salt of the Earth"... what do you think He meant? If you are a Christian, do your words and actions serve to cleanse and remove the impurities of sin? Do you seek to preserve those you come in contact with, and do you share your love for the Lord, thus creating a thirst for more knowledge of Him? Isn't it interesting that the word salt was used here.... but it goes on to say that if the salt has lost it's saltiness, it is no longer of value. So whatever you believe Jesus was telling His followers... it's important to keep on being that salt!
I decided to make a shaker card, using sea salt in my shaker. My base is Bazzill and the dp is 7 Gypsies. I stamped the image with Memento, and the sentiment with VersaFine. The image is cut with the new Circle Ornament Dies. The trim is some K&Co sticker trim, and I added some twine around the shaker iteslf.
Here is my second sample.
For this card I used two more of the new sets: Christmas Pattern Ornament and Poinsettia Wreath. I also used the ODBD Custom Circle Ornament Dies, also released today, and the ODBD Custom Recipe & Tags Die from a previous release. My designer paper is the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013, and I just love it!
I started off with a base of Bazzill, then a Real Red layer, then the ODBD Christmas paper , and then I added a red layer at the bottom, cut with a Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Border. The ribbon is from Michaels. The ornament is stamped with the Christmas Pattern Ornament and cut with the Custom Circle Die, and mounted with dimensionals, and tiny silver pearls were added, as well as the little hanger, which I cut from silver mirrored paper. The sentiment from Poinsettia Wreath was stamped with Real Red and cut with the ODBD Custom Recipe and Tags Die. I added a tiny silver bow to the ornament, and some silver pearls to finish the card. This card was quite quick and easy to make, and is very mailable.
Here are the ODBD products I used today:
