It's the first day of June and that means RELEASE day at Our Daily Bread Designs' .
April showers bring May flowers and June... brings new shabby papers and lots of sun at ODBD! And this month, you have a chance to hop along, comment and potentially win a gift certificate good toward the purchase of ODBD stamps!
Check at the end of today's post for all of the hop details including links to my "Sister Sticks." Right now, I'm too excited to sit still! I have to show you the new products and the projects I created using them! ;-)
This one features the new Hello Sunshine stamp set
and fun Sunburst Background Die.
I started with a black card stock base (5.5 x 4.45 inches) and added a soft blue mat. I used the Sunburst Background Die to cut/emboss my focal layer AND sponged in Memento's Summer Sky ink before removing the panel from the die. I stamped my image, from the Hello Sunshine set, on Neenah Solar Crest paper before coloring with Copics. I used a stamp positioning tool to stamp the sentiment (also from that set) with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I cut the panel down to the desired size and added a blue and black matting. I placed the panel slightly to the right of the card (if you are looking at straight at it) because the die pattern is designed that way as well. A few die cut clouds from ODBD's Raindrops and Clouds Die fit snugly on the bottom with dimensional foam!
Less you think I have totally abandoned my shabby side... here is card number 2 featuring
I started with a Kraft card stock base (5.5 x 4.25 inches) and added a slightly smaller gold mat.
*** I created the mat with gold poster board you can pick up at your local craft store (so much cheaper)*** I pulled out some DP from the new Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection and used the Sunburst Background Die to create my base. I used a bit of DP and gold matting to create a banner nestled to the right strategically placed behind my flower display. I stamped the sentiment found in the Good Man stamp set on coordinating paper (Memento Tuxedo Black ink) and cut it to the desired size. I added a slightly larger dark brown card stock mat. I then used ODBD's Decorative Vase Die to cut/emboss the vase from another DP from the collection. The die cut branches (Fancy Foliage Die) and ecru blossoms Birds and Nest Die nestle in nicely. I added a bit of baker's twine around the vase before adhering with dimensional foam.
So here are the new products featured in my projects...
and some old favorites...
So what do you think? I know I am SO excited to share all of these new products! This month promised to be an incredibly SUNNY one! :-)
