Our Daily Bread Designs 4th Anniversary Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs 4th Anniversary Special Design Team Edition Release Blog Hop!

If you got here from Suzanne's Blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you are sure not to miss anyone! If any links are lost along the way, you can always get the entire list of links from the ODBD Blog as well!

The bread sticks are so excited to be celebrating this special milestone in the life of ODBD! It is such a blessing to work for a company that brings glory to God in every stamp set created, and offers us the tools we need to do the same with every card we create! If you are a long term follower of ODBD, then you know that each year, the Design Team submits a favorite Scripture for the special anniversary sets, and those suggestions have been the sum total of all the "Scripture Collection" stamp sets in the store. This year, the special sets include our favorite Scriptures, but also quotes and sentiments that we feel would be great on cards or projects. I think you will find some of the most encouraging and uplifting words available in stamps in these special anniversary sets!

So now, here are the Details of the Anniversary Hop:

  • The Hop will run 8am EDT Mar. 17 until 8pm EDT Mar 18.
  • The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Mar 19.
  • Four hoppers will win a FREE ANNIVERSARY SET and One blessed hopper will win The Complete Anniversary Bread Basket Bundle!!!
Here is what you have to do to be qualified to win one of these prizes:
  • Hop to each designer’s blog and leave a comment
  • Return to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and leave a comment telling us that you completed the hop, making note if there were any you could not comment on.
  • Along with your statement that you completed the hop, leave some Anniversary wishes for Kelley and the gang at ODBD!


I selected one of my favorite scriptures from the Book of Psalms. This particular scripture reminds me of the power and majesty of our Creator. When things are difficult, we only have to look at the majesty of His handiwork to know he is with us. What a powerful reminder of his love for us! For this card, I embossed the DP before distressing the 4 edges and adhering to card stock. This layer was then popped up with dimensional foam to frame my verse. I then used coordinating card stock and cut a frame with a oval and scalloped oval die. When finished I added a layer of white card stock which I edged on the bottom with a lacey paper punch. The entire framed scripture Scripture Collection 9 was then adhered to a light cream card stock base. Final touches include a mulberry rose, burlap leaves and some lovely pearl bridal sprays I found and cut down to fit this project. I also added a white butterfly die with pearl accents!

Now I will send you to the next stop on the hop, Sandee. Thanks for stopping in!

Gorgeous card. The sentiment could be used with so many things. I love that floral paper, is that the Kaisercraft silver linings that you listed? I'm always looking for small floral prints and they seem hard to find as so much paper is scaled for scrapbook pages.
