A New Month and a New Release at Our Daily Bread Designs

Good morning and welcome to another fabulous release day at Our Daily Bread Designs!  If you enjoy sand between your toes and an ocean breeze ruffling your hair, we have the release for you!  Sandy beaches, flip flops, sand dollars...  Where is the nearest beach???? 
 
In the meantime, take a peek at all of the new and charming products at Our Daily Bread Designs.  Plus, three winners will be randomly chosen from comments left of the design teams blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website.  Hurry!  You only have until August 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog  on August 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you have won! 
 
Here is the first card I have to show today using, Flip Flop Fun and coordinating Flip Flop Die plus the sand dollar image from Ocean Treasures.
 
 
I stamped my flip flops on white card stock, die cut them and colored them lightly with a teal glitter glue.  Once they were dry, I added a tiny pearl on each.  The card base is a simple seafoam green card stock with a vellum layer on top.  I stamped the sand dollar image randomly with a watermark ink and embossed the pattern with white embossing powder.  I chose white and sea foam green for my sentiment panel selecting ODBD's previous die releases Vintage Flourish Pattern and Vintage Labels to highlight the sentiment. 
 
I just love this sentiment!  A cup of coffee...  sand between my toes...  ahhhhh....
 
Here's the new products you see...
 


 
and a couple of oldies...
layer 1
 
CSBD55 - VINTAGE LABEL DIES

layer 2
 
CSBD56 - VINTAGE FLOURISH PATTERN DIES 
 
And if you like something a bit more shabby,
here is my second card, using a gesso textured background....
 
 
 This time I stamped my image from Anchor the Soul on white card stock before using an older die, Antique Labels and Borders Die to frame it.  Look closely and you will see another favorite, Beautiful Borders Die peeking out from behind the seam binding. 
 
So here's a few of the items you see here today...
 
 
 and a couple of old standbys...
 
CSBD26 - ANTIQUE LABELS & BORDER DIES
 
CSBD51 - BEAUTIFUL BORDERS DIES

Lori, both cards are gorgeous! Love how you embossed the background with the sand dollar! I really enjoy the blue/white theme on your second card!

Colleen Howell said...

Both are great but I love the one with the sand dollar as the background the best, I always forget you can use your stamps as backgrounds too.

Stephanie said...

It's hard to pick a favorite between your two cards. I really like how you embossed the sand dollars on the vellum overlay and the colors on that card are gorgeous. I also really like how you kept the 2nd card blue and white and didn't color the image. All the die cuts are gorgeous!!

DebR said...

Beautiful! Love the way you did the flip flops on the first card and the way you embossed the sand dollars on your second card. You're right a cup of java and sand between the toes is my idea of total fun and relaxation :-) Thank you for sharing your beautiful and very elegant cards.

That teal glitter and pearl accent is gorgeous on the flip flops! That could be patented! Thanks for the inspiration! Your technique with gesso is beautiful too. That's new for me.

Very pretty embossed background on the first, it looks great on the vellum and love the pearls added to the flip flops. Love the combo of dies and the embossed background on the second card!

Audrey Ann said...

Wow Lori - these cards are fabulous!! I am in love with the first one - your colors and textures with the simple message and wonderful flip-flops just speaks to me. And your second is so striking with the bright blues and fun background. Beautiful work!! Hugs!!

Tammy Pope said...

LOVE the simple color schemes on these cards. The seafoam green with the cream sand dollars is lovely, and navy is just perfect with the nautical theme.

Wanda Cullen said...

Wow, these are both so gorgeous!! The embossed sand dollar BG and the colors are my fave elements on the first! Your monochromatic blues with the textured BG on the second are equally beautiful!

Sabrina aka okimom2girlz said...
