Welcome to the ODBD June Release!

Hello friends!   I can't believe it's June already, can you?  Well, believe it or not, it is, and that means new goodies being released from Our Daily Bread Designs!  The bread sticks have been having a blast playing with the new toys!  They are super fun and I think they will be a big hit!

First a few details on how you can qualify to win some new ODBD stamps! 
Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 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 June 2, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on June 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
Now, on to my card above.  I used the new single, Father's Day Tools to stamp my fun sentiment, colored with Copics and cut out with the ODBD Custom Elegant Ovals die.  I used the newly released Pegboard and Hooks die and Workshop Tools dies to make the cute tools haning on the pegboard.  I cut the tools once from silver card stock and once from another color, cut the handles off the colored ones, sponged a bit and adhered to the silver.  To make the toolbox I simply used a scrap of red Bazzill card stock, measured the size I wanted, as well as the size drawers I thought looked right and cut out.  I used a Spellbinders Classic Rectangle die to cut the bottom so there are little legs.  I then took a piece of silver design paper and scored it every 1/8" and used my cutter to cut along the score lines.  I adhered the silver strips to the tops of my drawers after sponging all the edges with Distress Inks.  My bottom drawer is popped up on foam tape so I can have it look like our tool box does here... there seems to be always something hanging out of a drawer so I kind of played off that with a tool and my rendition of an extension cord hanging out.  To make the extension cord I just took some twine and colored it orange with a Copic Marker.  The base of this card is Kraft, and the brown design paper is from a great new ODBD Paper Collection, Vintage Ephemera Collection.  

For my next card, I used the new Hello Sunshine to stamp my sun and rays with Memento ink, and fussy cut the image.

I also stamped just the word sunshine from the same set, and used a word punch to cut it out.  The background is an awesome new die, Sunburst Background.  I wanted to keep this card clean and crisp so I cut it from Neenah Solar White and popped it up with foam tape on a white base.  I added the sun which I had cut from a scrap of yo yo yellow card stock, and added two clouds from a previous release, ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  I cut the word Hello with the ODBD Hello Die also from the yo yo yellow and adhered it to the card.  Then I took the little sunshine from the Sunbirst Background die set and mounted my word sunshine on top of it.  I really like the crisp clean feel of this card.  

In case you missed my sneak peek earlier, I wanted to share here as well.  This card uses one of my favorite verses, Jer. 29:11 from the new set Good Man.    I paired it with this great paper that has house and landscape "plans" on it from BoBunny.  You can read about this card HERE.

The cards in this blog hop are so amazing! Love both cards and really like the white embossed background for your sunshine card. Very different and so pretty with the yellow standing out. Your tool card is as cut as can be. What a great verse to use with the tools on third card.

Wonderful cards, Grace. I love the tool box and how you have the rope and the tool coming out the drawer. You really captured my husbands style with that. :)

The sunshine card is very pretty, I love the crisp white with the bright sun.
