Welcome to the ODBD 6th Anniversary Release!



 Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs 6th Anniversary Celebration and release!!!  If you have not seen the full release yet, you might want to pop on over to the ODBD blog to see it all.  Be sure to see below at the end of this post all the details of how YOU could win this entire release bundle!!!  

 This is the special time of the year when the designers submit a Scripture verse, sentiment or quote they would like to see in a stamp set, and they are then made in to the Anniversary Sets for this special celebration.

My verse is the one you see above from Ps. 61:2.  It is in Scripture Collection 12.

I thought that the mountain from the ODBD Keep Climbing set as well as the Bird Borders and Corners were a perfect fit with my verse. So I kind of cased a card of my own from a couple years ago, simplifying it a bit but still similar. My card base is Sage Shadow and then I used Neenah Solar White and Memento Ink to create my layers of images.  I cut the verse out with the ODBD Custom Elegant Oval dies, and matted that with a Spellbinders Majestic Label 25.  I died some seam binding with sage shadow ink but in the photo it looks a little off.  In real life it's a pretty close match. Here are the past release sets I used as well as the new Anniversary set that my Scripture is in, Scripture Collection 12.

Here is another card made with my Scripture verse:


For this second card, I stamped with Regal Rose on white card stock three of the smallest Zinnias from the March 1 release. I then created a vellum overlay to soften the colors.  I created a window for my sentiment by stamping the Scripture verse on regal rose card stock with versamark and heat embossing in white, and then cutting a Spellbinders Marvelous Rectangle frame for it.  I also stamped one zinnia on the vellum, and one on white card stock, and heat embossed them both, cutting out the card stock one with the custom Zinnia and Leaves die.  I cut an ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage flourish from white card stock, and four Beautiful Borders, which I cut off the lacy part and used just the little eyelet edge for my edging inside and outside. I added a sheer bow and some pink pearls to finish it off.  This one was hard to photograph, but in real life it is prettier than in the photo.

CSBD51 - BEAUTIFUL BORDERS DIES
CSBD33 - FANCY FOLIAGE DIES

For my final sample, I used another verse from the same Scripture Collection 12.



  I paired the Scripture verse with the past release, Dahlia Single. I stamped the Dahlia all over my background with Memento ink in Nautical Blue.  I created the matting for the verse by cutting a white card stock layer with a Spellbinders Curved Border 2 on each side.  I then masked the edges of the panel and stamped the Dahlia in the center of the widest part, and again on the top and bottom.  I cut my verse with a Spellbinders Classic Circle Large and popped up with dimensionals.  I decorated with another ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage flourish, a May Arts bow, a small beaded flower, and some ZVA blue pearl flourishes.

Oh, Grace, your lovely cards are always so amazing. I love all the beautiful and inspiring stamps and dies that ODBD has offered over the last 6 years. My stamping budget is much more limited these days, but ODBD is one of the tops because I love the ways they help us express our Christian faith.

Grace, I get little goosebumps all over when I look at your first creation. The color strikes me first - so soft and serene, and the scene you've created captures me!! This is pure creative genius my sweet friend - it's just amazing. But it doesn't stop there - your second card is breathtaking and oh so creative as well, and if that's not enough you're showing off a third!! I'm such a fan of a monochromatic look and you've mastered it for sure!! Thank you for all your inspiration!!

I love your beautiful cards!

Traci S. said...

Grace you are such a dynamic, creative person! I hope you know how I love your heart and your art.

Your first card is amazing! I love how you blocked the card, and used several different stamps. This is truly beautiful. How grateful we are to have His Word! I think about how when I take my mind off of Jesus, it takes a short time for me to lose my footing. This is beautiful, Grace!

The second card is so delicate looking. The vellum gives a special feel...and I love all of the die cuts used! No fussy cutting! Hurray! This would be a great card for any special occasion with a change of the Scripture.

And, the third card...I have no idea on earth how you made that! It is full of twists and turns, die cuts, paper piercing, and amazing stamping and creativity. I love the navy and the white together.

I miss you so much. I am finally back on line...doing ok. I will be in touch shortly. Love you!

He IS Able!

Gracie CH said...

Grace, I came by again because your blue floral background card, is by far the most inspiring one I've seen lately. I even wanted to favorite it on SCS but had no idea how to find you there. You are a talented child of God dear, big hug and blessings.
