Welcome April AND New Releases from Our Daily Bread Designs!

Good morning!  Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs'  April release!  The daffodils are showing their bright sunny faces!  And that means Easter is just around the corner.  I am SO excited to share this month's release with you!  There are beautiful die cut crosses, wonderful sentiments and papers that will help you put together all of your Resurrection Sunday projects! 
 
And to make browsing our design teams' projects even more special, three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs.  The winners will receive a $15 gift certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of Our Daily Bread Designs' stamps.  You have until April 2, 2014 at 9PM EST to make  your comments!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on April 3rd, so be sure to check the ODBD Blog to see if you are a winner! 

I promised some beautiful die cuts and sentiments! 
And here is my first release project featuring Vintage Flourish Pattern Die, the coordinating Flourish Label Borders stamp set and The Cross


I die cut the flourish die cut card base twice, folding one panel roughly a quarter inch thus creating a fold for the main panel.  I then used a royal blue ink and stamped a label border on the card base.  I die cut another panel which includes the sentiment (from The Cross) and a label border.  I added it to the card base with dimensional foam.  A prior release, Fancy Foliage creates the greenery nestled under those sweet lemon and pink mulberry roses.  I just love the dainty, feminine feel of this project. 

Now if that isn't enough, here is another one that includes a fabulous die cut cross nestled on top of a shaker panel brimming with spring colored blossoms.


I started with a lavender and yellow base nestled under a lovely DP from the new Christian Faith Paper Collection.  I created a shaker panel with some left over acetate from a die cut package and a lovely frame created with the Vintage Flourish Die.  I filled the shaker with a spring colored mix of craft sprinkles and sealed the panel with another die cut from a sheet of matching designer paper.  I added a mix of lavender, purple and yellow blossoms with a bit of die cut greenery.  I stamped this powerful sentiment from The Cross on coordinating card stock and added it to the mix.  A lovely die cut white cross (Ornamental Crosses Die) sits on top of the shaker panel. 

Now here are the new products I used today...

I hope these projects put you in the mood to create.  Please be sure to visit my fellow "Breadsticks" to see what they have created.  Remember if you leave a comment on the designers' blogs your name could be randomly chosen to win a gift certificate!  Thanks for sharing your day with us!
