Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' December Release

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

This month we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  His life given for us, was the most precious gift ever given!  This month, we are sharing some lovely sets that help you express your thanks, uplift a friend or just remind someone you are thinking of them!  Sentiment sets are so handy!  And when you have a coordinating set that includes everything from a background to dies...  well...  it's FABULOUS!

AND you have a chance to get your hands on these or other ODBD stamps of your choosing!  How, you ask?  Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs to receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps.  You have until December 2, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The winners will be posted on the  ODBD Blog on December 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

So would you like to take a peek at these new sets? 



 and here are what the complete sets look like...



 
I stamped the Ornate Border image with a Danube blue ink on white card stock.  I used the coordinating die to cut out the image.  I scored a second piece and used the die to cut out a coordinating hinged back.  (Make sure your die is above the fold so you have a hinge to glue your focal image on.)  I stamped the top sentiment layer (with smaller ornate border stamp) and used the die to cut it out as well.  I split the blue die cut in two and added the halves to the bottom for interest.  A couple of blue rhinestone finish it off!  I just love it!   

Now this one uses the Ornate Background stamp, Ornate Borders and Flowers along with the No Words set.  The Ornate Borders & Flower Die ties it all together. 

 
and here are the ones I added into the mix...


 
I scored the white card base with a triangular pattern and stamped the ornate pattern (light gray) on white card stock.  I used a gray CS to mat it before positioning it with dimensional foam.  I added my own rosette (created by scoring a 12 inch piece of gray card stock at 1/4 inch intervals).  I used the Ornate Border stamp to create my sentiment panel (plus coordinating die) and added the sentiment in black (No Words set).  A few strategically placed pearls finish it off! 

So what do you think?  Didn't I tell you these sets would help fill out your stamping needs?  Now, don't forget to stop and share the love with the other "Sticks" for chance to win!  Thanks for stopping by!  {{hugs}}

These two uses of the new stamps and dies are very pretty. I like the bright color of the blue one. The black one is more subdued but equally as beautiful. Great job!
