Our Daily Bread Designs' June Release and Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs' June release and Blog Hop!  We have so many items to share today, including items perfect for creating masculine cards, birthday projects and everyday occasions!  

Don't forget to check the end of today's post for details on how you can hop along and enter for a chance to win!  

But first, I have a fun card featuring the new Armor of God stamp set to share...


I started with a black card stock base measuring 4.25 inches wide by 11 inches long, scoring and folding at 5.5 inches.  I cut an ever so slightly smaller red designer paper panel using ODBD's Old Glory Paper Pad.  I created the metallic mat using the Majestic Medallion Die with silver poster board.  I distressed the embossed panel with Metallic Rub-ons in Pewter and Gunmetal.  I stamped the image twice on Copic compatible paper (Neenah Solar Crest) and colored my image (from ODBD's new Armor of God set), fussy cutting the sword on the second image.  

Copic Colors - C1, C3 & C5 (armor)
R24, R27 & R29 (cross)

I used the Pierced Rectangles Die to cut out one of my armor images and cut a slightly smaller red mat out of red DP from the Old Glory Paper Pad.  I stamped my sentiment with Real Red ink on white card stock, die cutting the sentiment with the Pierced Ovals Die.  I used the Ovals Die and black card stock to create the sentiment base.  After placing my sentiment panel where desired, I added my fussy cut sword with glue to give it a dimensional look.

So here is the new stamp set you see used today...




I started with a white card stock base and added a slightly smaller yellow mat (ODBD's Birthday Brights Paper Pad) and stacking a die cut lime green paper also in the same DP set.  I chose a lovely DP from the new Birthday Bash Paper Collection  die cutting it and the lime mat with ODBD's Pierced Rectangles Die.  ODBD's new Sending My Love  set includes the word Sending die (cut here in yellow) and a host of stamps to add just the perfect sentiment.  I added mine with black ink to a white sentiment panel (ODBD's Pierced Ovals).  The new Balloons & Streamers Die allowed me to create my own plethora of perfectly matched balloons!

Here are the new items you see...

Hi Lori - I have never thought of using silver poster board for embossing - genius! Your designs are really creative and I love the embellishments you described to bring out details on each card. Thanks for all the inspiration! -Robin M

To Lori from another Lori: I'm new to Our Daily Bread designs. I'm greatly enjoying all the blogs. I love your two cards. They are so different but both awesome. Great, great job!

Your Armor card is a strong reminder of what's important! Quite impressive! Your second card is very cheerful!
Both cards are so different in theme but so wonderful. The metallic die cut behind the armor is really cool and the touches of red really set it off.

The birthday card is everything a birthday card should be. Bright, cheerful and full of celebration.
