Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' November Release

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' November New Release Hop! 

Can you believe it is November?  Wow!  Where has the year gone?  Well, with a new month I get to share some new stamps by Our Daily Bread Designs!  And if you participate in our hop, you can share in the fun too! 

One winner will be randomly chosen from one of the designers blog comments to receive a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps.  You have until November 2, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The winner will be posted on the ODBD Blog on November 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!  

 Normally, I share a couple of cards with you but this time I had such a hard time choosing... 

I picked 3!!!!!  ;-)


This white dream features the new stamp set, Vintage Pattern Ornaments and a new die set, Circle Ornaments.  I embossed the top layer with a snowflake pattern before adding Glimmer Mist and a few pearls.  I stamped the ornament image on white paper with an aqua colored ink and used the Circle Ornaments die set to create a silver bale AND cut the ornament out.  I stamped the sentiment with a watermark ink and embossed it with silver before cutting it with a ribbon like die and adhering.  So cute!

And then I couldn't resist using the Circle Ornaments set AND the new 2013 Christmas Paper Collection for a fun stair step card...


This time, I embossed both ornaments with silver embossing powder.  I created one on black card stock and the other on white.  I used the Circle Ornaments die to create the bale and ornament PLUS the holly!  I love die sets that are SO versatile!  The sentiment was stamped in black ink on some beautiful snowflake paper from Our Daily Bread Designs' 2013 Christmas Paper Collection.  I just love the new paper too!  ***Hint***  The papers coordinate beautifully with many of the ODBD sets you already own!!!!  ;-)

And for my final project, a clean and simple gem using a fun sketch and the new set, The Earth...


I stamped the image, from The Earth set,
 in black on white Copic compatible paper and after coloring embossed it in gold.  I used ODBD's Circle Ornaments die to cut the globe out slightly smaller than the image.  I added a few nontraditional colors (pink & green) to add a bit of interest.  I call this my green card...  mock page print, pink & green...  reminds me just how precious our Creator's creation is! 

So here's the ODBD products I used today...
