Surprise!!! A Mid Month Release at Our Daily Bread Designs!

Good morning!  Welcome to a special mid-month release blog hop at Our Daily Bread Designs!  This month Our Daily Bread Designs has some many new products, they couldn't stop with one release!  So today, I get to show you some new STAMPS and DIES just for this special mid month release!  And they are AMAZING!!!!  But ODBD stuff is always amazing!!!!

It's almost like getting dessert twice with you meal and not gaining a pound!!!  **if only that happened in real life**  And if a second release of amazing products isn't enough...  we are having ANOTHER blog hop this month, with DRUM ROLL PLEASE****  A CHANCE TO WIN A $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE TO THE ODBD STORE!!!!  Woot, Woot!!!!  Be sure to check out all the deets on this special blog hop and how you may qualify to win at the end of this post...  

So let's go straight to card number #1 
featuring the new Beauty   
stamp set AND the new Leafy Edged Borders Die...

I started with a rich raspberry card stock base (4.5 x 5 inches) and added a white card stock mat.  I used the new Leafy Edged Borders Die  to cut my white lace layer, silver poster board layer and designer paper over lay.  I stamped my image with Memento Ink on Copic compatible paper and colored it to resemble a stargazer lily.  I fussy cut the image after completing it and nestled it on top of a white die cut panel (created with the Stitched Ovals
die) along with greenery from the Fancy Foliage Die.  I stamped my sentiment with a rich raspberry
ink on white card stock and hand cut the panel to create a banner.  I tucked a pearl spray along with a few random pearls on the edge.  

And now for my second card using Plant a Garden...

Here, I started with a brown card stock base also measuring 5.5 x 4.25 inches.  I then chose a plank like designer paper from Our Daily Bread Designs' Rustic Beauty Paper Collection. 
I elected to cut strips of the paper and adhere it to my base as if it were a true fence...  going so far as to add a z shaped brace with dimensional foam on top.  I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper (Plant a Garden) and colored it with Copics.  I lightly sponged on Memento's Olive Grove ink on the bottom and Summer Sky on top to mimic the sky.  I created the flower spray with the new Pretty Posies Die. 
I cut flower layers and leaves with white card stock and colored each with distress ink.  I spritzed them lightly with water and shaped them with a stylus and mouse pad.  I used an older die Sunburst Background Die,
to created the base for the flower "buds" you see...   

So here are the new items you see for this special mid month release...

Gorgeous lily card. They are one of my favorite spring/summer garden plants. Beautifully done. Having been a farm boy I like the second card as well. Excellent work.

Hugs and Blessings

Beautiful cards. I love the new dies and sentiments. The Plant a Garden card reminds me of cooler weather when I start making soups to put up in the freezer. What a beautiful bounty of vegetables.
