Welcome to the June ODBD release!!! Oh Happy Day!!!

Hello friends!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs June release!  I'm so thrilled to be able to participate in this release as it is one HaPpY ReLeAsE!  You cannot view these fun bright colors and incredible stamps and dies without a happy smile!  If you want to see the full release in one place, you can view it on the ODBD Blog.  To further add to that smile... three of our hoppers will win a $25. gift code to the ODBD Store just for leaving a comment on the DT blogs!  You have until Jue 2, 2016 at 9:00pm to leave your comments and the winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on June 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

For the card above I used the new set You Bless Me So, which I just love!  This is a die and stamp combination set and has sooooo many possiblities!  It's one I suggested to Kelley some time ago and I'm so happy to have it in stamps and die now!!!  I know this will be a "go to" set for me!  I also used several fun new and past released ODBD Custom Dies:  Bitty Borders, Mini Bow, Pierced Rectangles, Double Stitched Rectangles, Rectangles, and Layered Lacey Squares.  I also used the newly released Birthday Brights Paper Collection.  I colored the cute little flower image with Copics and used a vellum sheet cut with the Layered Lacey Squares to create a little paper "wrap" for my bouquet.  I just love the bright fun colors this month!  The make my heart happy!  I also love the sentiments in this new set!  I hope you do too!

Here are links to the ODBD products used for this card:


For my next project I used a bunch of new ODBD Custom dies to create this  pop-up card box!  I gave this to my daughter for her birthday and she just loved it!  If you love fun interactive cards... this is a must have die!  

 I used the following new dies:  ODBD Custom Surprise Box, Bitty Borders, Bitty Banners, Cakes & Candle, Celebrate & Wish, Balloons & Streamers, Mini Tags & Labels.  I also used a past stamp set, Pennant Swag Alphabet to stamp the letters wish, and added them to the Bitty Banner.  Other than that, this card is completely made of dies!  How fun is that?!?  The paper used here is Bazzill textured for the base, and the new ODBD Birthday Bash Paper Collection, and ODBD Brights Paper Collection.  

The box is so easy to put together because the die even scores the fold lines so it's literally a cut, fold  adhere and decorate project. 


 The really neat thing about this box is it folds totally flat and can be mailed in a square or larger rectangular envelope.  I used a 6x6" for this one but it would have fit in a smaller one.  It also fit in a 5x7 envelope with room to spare on the length.

Here are the links to the ODBD products I used on this surprise popup box:


 I hope you enjoyed my samples as much as I enjoyed making them!  I am in the process of doing radiation now.  I go 5 times a week, and I have 4 weeks to go.  Looking forward to being done!!!  Thank you all for your continued prayers!!!  They mean so much!!!

Oh, Grace, I love the "happy" colors and your beautiful designs! I love the first card with the great plaid and beautiful focal image! Love the flowers with the "you" die and sentiment! And the pop-up card is amazing and such a delight! Now that's what I call taking the work out of this card. It's something (I think) I could even manage - hehe! Beautifully done, sweet friend, and I continue to pray for you and praise God for all He's brought you through and will continue to. Much love and hugs!
