Welcome to the ODBD November Release!!!

ODBD stamps Come Let us adore Him designed by Grace Nywening


Hello friends!  Welcome to the ODBD November release!  I hope you have had a chance to see the full release, but if not, be sure to stop by the ODBD Blog!  We are sharing shining stars this month! 

Here's the Prize Information: 
Three randomly selected winners will each 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 just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until November 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on November 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

For my first card above, I used Come Let Us Adore Him, and the Flourished Star Pattern Dies, Splendorous Star Die, Shining Star die and the Sparkling Stars dies.  I also used a past release, Elegant OvalsI also used the gorgeous new Winter 2014 Paper Collection.

I started with a Neenah White base, layered on my dies from Neenah White and embossed the verse with silver embossing powder.  I also cut a Splendorous star and the Shining Star and several Sparkling stars from silver glitter paper.  I cut apart one sparkly die cut from the Flourished Star Pattern die set and glued it back together on the white star so that the tips of the points would show behind my sentiment layer.  (In other words, I made it a little bigger to make a pretty frame for my sentiment panel).  I finished it off with some tiny stars from the Sparkling Stars set and a silver sheer bow.

For my second card below, I made a Z fold card.   I used Come Let us Adore Him, heat embossing with a Copper Glittered embossing powder.  I cut them with Splendours Star Dies and the Flourished Star Pattern die.  (These dies layer beautifully together).   I added some tiny stars from the Sparkling Stars set as embellishments, and one copper Shining Star die cut.   The paper is the beautiful new 2014 Christmas Paper Collection.  The base is a sparkly copper card stock.  Some pearls and pearl flourishes finished it off.

Here is another angle.



I lined up my front star with the inside star so they exactly line up when the card is closed.  Below is a close up of the sparkly copper embossing powder.  I hope you can see a bit of the sparkle!

First, thank you for the John Newton verse. So beautiful. I've added it to my collection. Love the ombre look of the village card. So very pretty. The silver does not overpower the first card. It's gorgeous.
