Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' July Release!

Good morning and welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' July blog hop!  Today we have a variety of fun stamps and dies to share.  Your mission, if you should choose to accept it...  visit all of the designer's blogs and take in the amazing creations!  To make it even more fun, ODBD is offering not one, not two, but 3 chances to win...
 
Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps.  You have until July 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on July 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
 
I know you can't wait to see all of the other beautiful creations, so let's hop right into my projects this month...

 
 
 
 
Today's card features a couple of new items this month including the Pennant Row (Believe banner) stamp set and coordinating Pennant Row Die shown below.  What makes this so fun?  The stamps are aligned for you.  So I just added the word believe to my block, stamped the pennant in brown ink and used the coordinating die to cut it.  I added a few bits of baker's twine at each end... 
Aren't these just divine???
 

 
and a few other ODBD dies including...
 
 
(hollowed out heart and pale pink border on top)
 

 
(the fabulous flower you see)
 

 
and the ODBD's yummy Blushing Rose Collection...
(2 sheets - a smaller rose print revealed by the heart die and the fence panel on top...)
 

 
And now for my second card in honor of July 4th and a special member of my family who served...
 
 
This shabby creation features the new Patriotic Pennants (Sentiment) and Pennant Alphabet (USA banner) stamp sets along with the new Pennants Die (Flag sentiment & Flag Pole) and Pennants Row Die (USA swag).

CSBD25 - PENNANT ALPHABET SOLID (CLEAR STAMPS)

GCS28 - PATRIOTIC PENNANTS (CLEAR STAMPS)
 
 

 





I also used the following ODBD products above...
 
card background stamped on white card stock & mounted
on navy mat with Kraft card base
 
 
distressed card board panel
 

poppies with black micro bead centers
 
 
vines & brown branches
 
 
It's time to continue on your way so you can peruse what my "Sister Sticks" have created.  I hope you enjoyed stopping by to look at my creations.  Thanks so much for your continued support and don't forget to comment and play along!
