Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' November Release

Good morning and welcome to the first day of November!  A new month means a new release at Our Daily Bread Designs.  And a new release means you have the chance to hop along, comment and win!  For more details on this month's hop check the bottom of today's post!  

Here's my first card featuring The Mighty GodLovely Leaves DiePinecones Die and Small Bows Die...


I started with a rich burgundy card stock base and layered on a soft gold card stock.  I added two coordinating designer papers from ODBD's Christmas Collection 2015.  I layered the burgundy print over the ornament design by using dies from the Leafy Edged Borders Die to cut and add a gold CS lace layer.  I stamped the sentiment (from the NEW The Mighty God) with burgundy ink on a sheet of coordinating DP and placed it slightly askew over both panels.  I added a greenery spray with branches created using the NEW Lovely Leaves Die.  A bit of white and brown card stock create the pinecone and snowy layer using the NEW Pinecones Die.  A bit of burgundy CS and the NEW Small Bows Die set add an easy to make paper bow.   

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




and some old favorites...
 


Now here is a blue and white creation featuring the new Flourished Merry Christmas, Snowflake Border Background, Lovely Leaves Die, Medium Bows Dies...


I started with a blue card stock base and white matting.  I stamped the border using the NEW Snowflake Border Background  with blue ink and distressed the edges before adhering with dimensional foam.  I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment (the NEW Flourished Merry Christmas) on white card stock and used Vintage Labels Die to frame the sentiment panel and as a template to cut blue mulberry paper to tuck underneath.  The NEW Lovely Leaves Die lends itself well for creating white foliage and Kraft twigs.  The NEW Medium Bows Die creates a fun paper bow to adorn the corner.  And just for fun...  a couple of glittered jingle bells...

SO here are the new items you see...
