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!  Wouldn't you love to add some of the new stamps to your stash???  You have until May 2, 2015 at 9:00 PM EDT to leave your comments on the Designers' Blogs for a chance to win!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on May 3rd, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!  Are you excited???  

I am!  SO let's jump right in to see what I cooked up for you this month...  Mrs. Robin made an appearance here with the new stamp set, Spread Your Wings and the coordinating die set, Birds and Nest Die.  The sentiment may be found in the new Belles Vignes set.  


I started with a pale pink base (measuring 5.5 x 4.25 inches).  I added a slightly smaller mat created with designer paper from the Shabby Rose Paper Collection.  I stamped the sentiment using a rich cocoa pigment ink and added a Kraft die cut layer using Vintage Flourish Pattern Die and Vintage Labels Die nested together to create a window.  Mrs. Robin and her nest (Spread Your Wings) were stamped on Copic compatible paper, colored, and cut out using the new coordinating die, Birds and Nest.  I added branches created with Fancy Foliage Die and a few pink blossoms and leaves created with the new May release, Birds and Nest Dies.  I added a few flat backed pearls to the center of each blossom.  I just LOVE Mrs. Robin!!!!  

Here's the new items you see...




So now for project #2 using 
and the coordinating die, Tres Papillons...


So this time, I decided to go with black and white.  And then I added my three butterflies, in shades of blue and orange for color.  I started with a 5.5 x 4.25 inch black card stock base and added a white matting.  I stamped my image (with black ink) on white card stock twice.  I trimmed the first down slightly smaller than my white matting and added a black base.  I cut my second image down and added another slightly larger black mat.  I positioned this one with dimensional foam.  I used a watermark ink to stamp my sentiment on black card stock and added white embossing powder.  After heating, I used an older die set, Mini Tags Die to frame it up.  I stamped my butterflies Trois Jolis Papillons on Copic compatible paper and colored one a pale blue and the remaining two orange.  I then pulled out the coordinating Tres Papillons Die to finish up each butterfly before placing with dimensional foam.   

And here are the new items you see today...
