Our Daily Bread Designs November Release Blog Hop!

Hello friends! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs November Release Blog Hop! If you got here from Silke’s blog, you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog so you don’t miss a thing!
The hop will run from 8am EDT Nov 1 until 8pm EDT Nov 2.  Winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog November 3rd.   Three blessed hoppers will win their choice of one free set, and 1 hopper will win the entire Nov. Bread Basket Bundle!!! Simply hop to each stop, leave a comment and return to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop and let us know if you had any problems along the way! That’s it! Blessings!!!

For today's hop I selected the Chickadee Ornament set shown below...


For my project, I created a Christmas ornament and coordinating gift box.


For the ornament, I stamped the image on white tissue paper and colored it with pencils. After lightly coating a clear ornament with liquid floor wax, I placed the trimmed image inside the ornament.  (It is much easier to roll the image up before putting it inside the ornament...)  I used a pipe cleaner to position the image before the wax dried. I added another coating of wax and coated it with glitter. Easy! (I'll follow up with a tutorial in the coming week...) 

I adorned the box with a Copic colored image with a layer of shirred lace on the back. Another fun project! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Now I will send you on to your final stop... the ODBD's blog!
 Blessings...

Awesome ornament and the box is pretty also. A great gift idea. TFS

Laura Love said...

What a beautiful set of projects! I never knew that you used liquid floor wax to make the ornament! Going to have to try one! Awesome job!

Colleen said...

Very Stunning.
Coloring on tissue paper? Don't think I would have the patience to do such a thing. My tissue paper would be in pieces. You bhave done an outstanding job.
I'm with some of the others suggestion on doing a tutorial on your project, please.
Thank you
ColleenB.

Gerrie Johnnic said...

How stunning and creative!! Your thought process is fabulous.

Becky said...

Both of these projects are stunning. Beautiful lace.

Becky Dunham said...

What an amazing idea Lori! I love the look of this ornament - somehow I doubt it would be so simple for me but I would surely be willing to try it! Thanks for explaining how you did it! Love the gift box too - I just love coordinating wrapping with the gift :)

Mary Gillmarten said...

LOVE the lace! I am loving that these sets can be used as ornaments! Every year I exchange an ornament with my best friend and this is going to make her Christmas! You are such a wonderful design team, everyone doing something different! I love it!

wannabcre8tive said...

Awesome projects and I really love that ornament.

Kelly L said...

Wow! What a terrific gift idea, and I have made a few clear ornaments in the past, but have never heard of using tissue paper and floor wax. What a great idea!! :) thanks for sharing it with us. Hugs, Kelly

Kathy said...

FLOOR WAX?!!! What a great idea! It is so fun doing these blog hops. I love the different ideas and uses for everyday products I would Never think of. This is great.

Jeanette said...

Love your creativeness in developing these beautiful ornaments... Anyone would cherish these! Would love to see the tutorial on making it.

Sabrina aka okimom2girlz said...

Goodness, Lori, girl, this is absolutely STUNNING, my friend!! I have read about that floor wax technique but have not tried it! I am looking forward to that upcoming tutorial from you! ;D;D Is there a possibility that I am on your list of friends to receive this amazing gift at Christmas time? LOL!! Hugs and blessings, Sabrina

kathi17 said...

I love it Lori! Using floor wax inside it a wonderful idea. I have use Future for a lot of craft projects, but never thought of using it inside an ornament, and the pipe cleaner hint is wonderful. I can't wait for your tutorial!

I love the gift box too, Someone is going to receive such a beautiful gift from you this Christmas!

Judi said...

I will be back to see the tutorial on this one. Two fabulous non-card ideas that will be CASEd for sure. And again, using my fav chickadees.

Karen Wedding said...

Wow! You're ambitious. I would never have used floor wax, but I guess that would work as well as glue and is probably much cheaper for the volume. Great job.

TLady said...

GASP!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lori! I've NEVER SEEN an ornament done this way before!!!!!! IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FLOOR WAX????????????? WOW!!!!!!!!!! AND your gift box is FABULOUS TOO!!!!!!!!! The topper COULD BE an Ornament TOO! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVING this Set of stamps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shelly Schmidt said...

Beautifully done set- love the topper for the box- and the ornament is beautifully done!

Sarah Stainback said...

Beautiful ornaments. This set is so beautiful!

Karen Letchworth said...

Wow, Lori! This is really beautiful. I don't know how all of you professional stampers get your images to stamp so crisp and perfect. I'm never quite that lucky, but however you do it - It sure is amazing to me. Thanks for sharing again this week at Word Art Wednesday. I just love all the ODBD stamps, and the DT is just awesome at showcasing them. Thanks again for brightening my day with your lovely art, and may God continue to bless and keep you.

Oh goodness - those are both just wonderful. I've always been a fan of the ODBD bird stamps and I have really enjoyed seeing all the possibilities of what can be done with the ornament sets - so many ways to use them!

Pati said...

Wow, very creative & beautiful! Love your ornament! it sounds like it could be difficult to unroll & maneuver the wet tissue inside the ornament so I'm looking forward to your tutorial! :) Very pretty box topper, it could be an ornament too!

Cynthia Xavier said...

Very clever to put the tag in a clear ornament. It would look good the tree or on a package. I love it.

Traci S. said...

Hi Lori~

What great ideas! I am intrigued on how you made the ornament. Thank you for the instructions, but I think I will wait for the tutorial (maybe a video?) to give it a try! It is beautiful! I like the idea of putting lace under the circle of the chick-a-dee ornament stamp. It is great. I love the bird images ODBD has, too!

Thanks for sharing two great ideas!
