It's Release Day at Our Daily Bread Designs!

Good Monday morning!  Welcome to the first day of December!  That means Christmas is only 24 days away!  This month, Our Daily Bread Designs has some special sets to share including one that is perfect for last minute Christmas cards!  Before we get to the cards I have today, let me share how you can add to your own Our Daily Bread Designs' stamp stash!  This month as part of the hop, three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You must hurry though.  You have until December 2, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on December 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
 
I have a couple of projects to share including one using the set, Let It Snow and some new ODBD Paper, the Patriotic Collection.

I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper and colored it with alcohol markers.  I added a bit of glitter glue to the "snow" after trimming.  My card base is a deep red with Kraft paper matting and layers of DP from the new Patriotic Paper Collection.  I took a bit of leftover board DP and stamped my sentiment on it and added die cut holly and branches found in some of ODBD's older die sets,  Fancy Foliage and Circle Ornaments 
 
Here's the new items you see today...



 I also decided to create a project with a bit more of a spring feel to it!  Thankfully, we haven't had much bad weather in my part of the country (YET) so I opted to create a breath of fresh air... 


This time, I used a moss green card stock with white matting to frame the DP from Our Daily Bread Designs' Blushing Rose Paper Collection.  I used last month's release, Sparkling Stars Die, to cut out the center with coordinating papers.  I then popped the image up with dimensional foam.  I used Asters and Leaves Die along with the Fancy Foliage Die to create a floral spray.  The ephemera were stamped and cut using the new ODBD releases, Admit One, Admit Three and coordinating Mini Tags Die.
 
The new release items...




The versatility of these sets...  AMAZING!  Now be sure to stop by and leave some love for all of today's designers!  You might just win a GC from Our Daily Bread Designs!  Thanks for stopping!

So beautiful a pair! Yes, I agree in that you have great style and I look forward to your future shares!

Both cards are wonderful! I love the rural look of the sled card, especially how you used the scrap of wood-patterned paper for the greeting. Looks like a sign you might see on someone's fence in the country. Great spring card, too, though I'm not quite ready to leap ahead that far in time yet! :) Tfs!
