A Mid Month Release at Our Daily Bread Designs!

  Good morning!  Welcome to a special mid month release from Our Daily Bread Designs!  I have two fun cards to share featuring a few of the new products in this mid month launch.  And to make this event even more fun, 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 "ODBD stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until October 16, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers' Blogs for a chance to win!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on October 17th, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
 
Now here is my first card featuring Everlasting Light stamp set and the new Merry Mosaics Dies...


I started with a simple white card stock base and added gold poster board cut to fit.  I added a slightly smaller DP panel featuring ODBD's new paper collection, Christmas Card Collection 2015.  I stamped my sentiment (Everlasting Light) with gold ink on ecru card stock.  I framed my sentiment using some old favorites from ODBD including Stitched Ovals Die and Ovals Die (gold poster board base).  I used the new Merry Mosaics Die to cut out alternating layers of ecru card stock and DP, overlapping each and adding gold micro beads to each center.  A gold vine (Fancy Foliage Die) adds a bit of whimsy.  

Here are the new items from today's release... 




and some old favorites...




Here is another project featuring the new Perfect Light stamp set and Christmas Candles Die...

I started with a white card stock base and gold mat.  I added a slightly smaller layer of DP, distressed and inked, from the October 1st, Christmas Paper Collection 2015 release.  I stamped the sentiment (Perfect Light) on white card stock and after cutting and embossing with the Antique Labels and Borders Die, and lightly inked the edges.  I used the new Christmas Candles Dies to create my candles and inked the flames with Dandelion and Tangelo Ink.  A bit of Desert Sand adorns the top of each candle.  I added twigs, a faux poinsettia and berries all created with this fun die.  And tucked in the corner...  an old favorite Decorative Corners Die.

So here are the new items you see...
