Now on to my first card (above). I used the fabulous new set, God's Timing and the Matting Circle Die set. I also used last month's release, the ODBD Custom Doily Dies. I stamped my clock image on a piece of black paper from the ODBD Chalkboard Paper Collection with VersaMark and embossed in white. I embossed the clock hands and cut them with the same Matting Circle Dies. LOVE this set!!!
My card base is Crumb Cake and I used some Prima "Something Blue" design paper, which I stitched just for fun. The sentiment from the same God's Timing set is stamped on a tag element from the same paper pack. I used a Spellbinders square mat of Blushing Bride, embossed with a Cuttlebug clocks and gears folder, and decorated around the clock with the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Dies and several flowers which I colored with Copics to match my design paper a bit better.
For this second card I used two of the new ornament stamps: Merry Christmas Ornament and the Wisemen Ornament. I used some shiny metallic gold to mat my ornament and I used the new Matting Circle Dies to cut the ornament, and the Circle Ornament Dies from last year to mat it. I love how these two sets of dies perfectly mat with eachother!!! I heat embossed both images in gold and instead of showing the entire ornament, I decided to focus on the "Merry Christmas" font, so I used a Spellbinders Petite Oval Lg. die to cut a window, and mounted the Merry Christmas behind it. I then framed it with gold metallic paper by cutting an oval frame with the Petite Oval Small and Large. I embossed the Merry Christmas with a Sizzix folder and added some Pine Bough die cuts from the Fancy Foliage Dies which I cut from white and also gold as just a little shadow. The vertical gold lines on the left are stickers and the gold pearls are from Michael's. While the card may look a little fussy, it is quite flat and mailable, so that makes me happy! :)
To wrap up, here are the new ODBD products I used today:
