ODBDSLC87 Bookmark It! & A Challenge



Welcome to another fun Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge. This week we are asking for bookmarks! Picture above is the front of my submission this week. I used the new ODBD Simple Things set! Don't you just love it??? The bookmark is actually a 4 x 4 piece of white card stock scored and folded. I edged the bottom with a paper punch and my ScorPal. A piece of My Mind's Eye DP and some lovely custom dyed seam binding add a nice springy punch! The image (colored with Copics and cut out with ODBD's matching die) was mounted on an embossed Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die cut.

The back, pictured below, includes one of my favorite Bible verses also included in the Simple Things set! Let me just tell ya... If you are ready for spring be sure to check out the December releases at ODBD! They are uber cute and the team is really "buzzing" about them! Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful weekend!



Here's how to play...

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Friday, December 9 at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award.

Paper - Colorbok, My Mind's Eye - Rosy; Stamps - ODBD - Simple Things; Ink - Garden Green; Dies - Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, ODBD - Clover Die; Seam Binding; Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots Embossing Folder; Paper Punch; ScorPal


And now for my second card... I created this one for this weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #117... I have also entered this card in Simon Says Stamp's Challenge Anything Goes!



I embossed snowflakes (ODBD Peace & Joy) on the background panel using an opaque white embossing powder. The pattern is very random. Just like snowflakes! I stamped my image (ODBD Sing For Joy) on Copic compatible card stock and colored it. I then cut and framed it with Spellbinders Ovals Large and Classic Scalloped Ovals Small. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black on the bottom and added this fab plaid ribbon on the bottom. So simple and so fun...
