A Sneak Peek at a SECOND OCT. RELEASE at ODBD!

ODBD stamps: Christmas Pennant Swag, Joy Tree, designed by Grace Nywening

Hello friends!  I'm popping in today with a sneak peek at a special second release coming to Our Daily Bread designs on Oct. 13!  The new release I'm sharing today is the Christmas Pennant Swag.  It is designed to fit the previously released Pennant Swag Die.  I also used a past release, Joy Tree.  I loved this tree and decided to use some fun shades of pink, red and green to color it with SU! markers.  I colored the whole stamp, then huffed a bit to make sure there was enough moisture to stamp well, and I do like how it came out.  I did a little hand doodling on the larger words to outline them.  (Did you do that when you were a kid?  I always did!)

Anyway... I stamped the Joy to the World Pennant Swag with a Colorbox Pigment Ink, and immediately heat embossed with Diamonds and Pearls for a shimmery effect.  Because that has so much shimmer, I decided to heat emboss my tree panel as well.  I used clear embossing powder to which I've added Dazzling Diamonds for a little sparkle.  It's hard to capture sparkle in a photo, but the little specs you see on the white panel are the dazzling diamonds. Here's a close up that hopefully shows it better. 

The card base is Neenah Solar White, and the design paper is from My Minds Eye Merry Little Christmas and Tis the Season 6x6 packs. 

Hope to see you back here for this second release!  Eight designers will have samples for you and there will be prizes for this release too.... so come play along for a chance to win!
