Welcome to the August ODBD release!

 Hello friends!  Welcome to the August ODBD release!  This month we are celebrating all things sports!  It's a big release, and there's something for almost everyone!  I hope you have had a chance to see the release, but if not you can see it HERE.

As always, we do have prizes and here are the details:
Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 Gift Code to the ODBD Website  just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until August 2, 2017 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 August 3rd so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
For my card above, I used the ODBD Center Step card set and the ODBD Old Glory paper pack to decorate the fancy fold.   I used the new Football Stamp/Die Duo set, as well as the All Star Jersey set, and I used the Football die that comes with the Football set, and the Sports Jerseys Dies that coordinates with the All Star Jersey set.  I also used past releases: Double Stitched Rectangles dies, Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies, and the Sparkling Stars dies for the little star on my twine bow.  I stamped the jersey twice, one on white and once on a blue paper from the Old Glory pack.  I stamped the shirt's sentiment on the white shirt, and I then paper pieced the white over the blue after cutting out the pieces I wanted to leave blue.  I stamped the footballs and die cut them with the included die, then I colored them with Copics.  I stamped the verse on white card stock and cut with the Pennant Flag die and layered that on my rectangle die cuts.  I "hung" the pennant from some twine which I topped with a tiny red star.  This was a fun card to make!

For my second card, I again used the Football Stamp/Die Duo set,  and the Old Glory Paper Pack.  I stamped my sentiment and cut with a Double Stitched Square die, and matted that with a regular Squares die cut from the design paper.  I used the football set to stamp the football, and colored with Copics, then die cut with the included die.  For my hand made goal, I used a Double Stitched Rectangle and a regular Rectangles die to cut a frame, and cut off the parts I did not need.  I finished off with a Grass Lawn die, cut from white.  While this is rather CAS, really it has enough layers to be interesting and yet is still quick and easy to put together.

To recap, here are the NEW products I used today:
