Our Daily Bread Designs August Release

Welcome to the ODBD August New Release! 
 
Kelley will be choosing one random winner from one of the designers blog comments to receive a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store to be used towards the purchase of stamps!  Now who couldn't use more ODBD stamps?????  You have until August 3, 2013 at 9:00pm EST to leave your comments on the designers blogs.  The winner will be posted on the ODBD Blog on August 4th, so be sure to check back there to see if you have won.  :-)
 
I have two cards today featuring this fabulous new release! 

Card number one featuring a new die,
Fancy Foliage  and stamp set, Strawberries.
 

I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper before coloring and cutting with a die.  I added two die cut sprigs (from the new release set) with a seam binding bow.  A few paper punched blossoms and tiny beads adorn the center.  I also stamped a sentiment and hand cut a sign to resemble a farm placard.  Don't they look yummy enough to eat? 
 
And then there this card featuring I Dig You!  Notice the shovel image colored and tucked in the flower spray????



This time I stamped my sentiment and die cut it with an oval die before lightly sponging the edges with light blue ink.  I created the frame using two Spellbinder dies stacked on top of each other.  I stamped the shovel image on Copic compatible paper, colored it and added glossy glue for depth after fussy cutting it.  The vines and foliage may be found on the new Fancy Foliage die.  Aren't they just darling?  A few pearls and blossoms finish it off.
