Welcome to the ODBD Sept. Release! It's SEW much Fun!!!

ODBD Stamps: Felicity, Birthday Doily; designed by Grace Nywening

 Hello friends!  Welcome to the ODBD September release!  This has been such a fun release all the bread sticks are totally enjoying their new stamps and dies!  If you did not have a chance to see the full release, you might want to pop on over to the ODBD Blog and see what we're all so excited about!

Before I get in to the details of my card, here is how YOU could win some free stamps from ODBD

 Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website.  You have until September 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on September 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

 Now... on to my cards.  The card above was made with the new single stamp called Felicity, as well as a sentiment from the Birthday Doily Set, and the fabulous Soulful Stitches Paper Collection.  It is on a base of Bazzill and I cut the gorgeous design paper with a Spellbinders Majestic Label 25.  I used the newly released Doily Dies and cut out the entire layered die, setting the larger pieces aside for another project, but I loved this center part of the doily as a matting for my sentiment, which is stamped with Basic Gray ink and die cut with a past release, Antique Labels and Border Dies.  I added some wrinkled seam binding but kept it pretty simple because I love the paper so much that I don't want to cover it up!  The image itself is colored with Copics and hand cut.

 My second card  was made using the new Hand Knit set, the Custom Knitting Basket Die,  the Stitches Mini set, the Custom Doily Die, and the Soulful Stitches design paper.  I also used some previously released ODBD dies - Beautiful Borders and the largest tag from Recipe Card and Tag die set.   I created this fancy fold to spotlight the pretty papers a little more than just one single surface.  It's a super easy design but works great when you either want to do more stamping or as in this case, want to decorate with more paper. :) I kept the embellishments very minimal.  I die cut the gorgeous Doily with the new Doily Dies from white card stock and stamped the knitting basket from Hand Knit with Memento ink, colored with Copics, and cut it with the custom  Knitting Basket Die. I used strips of my base green Bazzill card stock, layered with white which I embossed with a Tim Holtz Sizzix thin zig zag stitch embossing folder and sponged with a little Blushing Bride ink.  I added two die cuts from the Beautiful Borders die set and adhered them to my front panels.

The front is only embellished with a ribbon belly band and a sentiment from the Stitches set stamped on the design paper and adhered to a white die cut from the Recipe Card and Tags die set.  In the photo the ribbon looks pinker than the knitting wool, but that's just my photo.  In real life they are very close in color.

I thought since I tried to match my colors very closely to the colors of the knitting basket image on the paper, I'd jot down the numbers of the Copics I used.  They are:  G85, G40, R59, R35, #49, E44, E41, E31, E37, E35, N2,and  N0
