Welcome Our Daily Bread Designs' September Release!

Happy Labor Day!  This year Labor Days falls on the first of September...  and you know what that means...  a new release at Our Daily Bread Designs!  This month we have beautiful dies, lovely stamps AND a new paper collection!  AND they celebrate the inner crafter in all of us!  I hope you enjoy browsing through the hop creations today as much as we enjoyed making them! 
 
Now here are all of the important deets for this month's hop...
 
Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store.  The Gift Certificate is to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website.  You have until September 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on September 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
 
Are you excited yet?  I know I am!  ;-)  Here's one of the projects I created this month using the new Doily Die, Soulful Stitches Paper Collection and Birthday Doily stamp set.
 

I used a soft green card stock for the base and a Kraft mat.  I added two slivers of coordinating paper (one a soft green houndstooth and the other a pink and green weave) from the Soulful Stitches Paper Collection.  I used the outer Doily die to create the Kraft base and the inner intricate design to cut another panel out of another sheet from the paper collection.  I chose a sentiment from Birthday Doily and stamped it in the center with black ink.  I used a few older dies to create my flower and vine spray.  A few adhesive pearls placed strategically along with button centers for my flower add a bit of texture.  I just love this pairing!  So fun! 
 
Here's the items you see from this month's release...

 


 
and some old favorites...


 


 Now on to my second project using the Hand Knit stamp set and coordinating Knitting Basket & Yarn Die.  Look closely and you will see the Soulful Stitches Paper Collection again as well! 

 
I roughed up some of the DP and added it to a soft green CS base.  I used the Vintage Labels to cut and emboss my green CS base and the scripture panel.  Sandwiched in-between is a die cut using Vintage Flourish Pattern Die and Soulful Stitches Paper Collection.  I used the Hand Knit stamp set to create my sentiment panel and images.  I stamped the images on Copic compatible paper and colored before cutting with the Knitting Basket & Yarn Die.  I placed those slightly askew from the sentiment panel and finished with a pink seam binding bow, crochet button from my stash and an ecru pearl flourish.  A bit of glitter glue highlights the "knitting needles" on the die cuts.  
 
Here are some of the new items you see... 


 

 
and more of my old standbys as well...
 


 CSBD55 - VINTAGE LABEL DIES

 Thanks so very much for hopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed  spending a few minutes with me exploring this new collection!  It's hard to believe the official end of summer is here!  I guess that means more crafting time as the days get cooler, right? 
 
Please stop by and visit the other "Bread Sticks" and don't forget to leave them some love!
