July Release and Blog Hop at Our Daily Bread Designs

Welcome to a new release at Our Daily Bread Designs and blog hop!  This month, we have a tropical theme...  perfect for all those summer cards you need to create!  And nothing says a warm tropical beach like flamingos and Frangipani!  For my first card, I used the new Tickled Pink stamp set, coordinating Flamingos DiesFerns Die and Frangipani Die.  We also have a special focus this month on one of our paper pad sets, Boho Bolds Paper Pad.  You see it here in the polka dot pattern paper and dark green background paper.

 I inked the centers of each frangipani blossom with a bit of distress ink and each flamingo was gently colored with Copic markers after stamping.  I also added a bit of Bamboo Leaves colored ink to the sentiment panel after cut/embossing and before removing the die.  So here are the new items you see today...




and the paper pad when are highlighting this month...


I chose to do a center step card for my second project using the new Aloha stamp set, coordinating Bird of Paradise Die, Ferns Die, Hibiscus Die and Tropical Leaves Die.

I stamped my image on Copic compatible paper and after coloring used the Bird of Paradise Die to cut it out.  I added the image to a softly sponged white background panel.  I used a soft blue and scalloped die to create clouds.  I created a fun floral spray using the new dies, Hibiscus, Ferns and Tropical Leaves.  I nested those over the panel and added an oval sentiment panel.  I chose to use a variety of papers on this one including Birthday Bash Paper Collection, Birthday Brights Paper Pad and Boho Bolds Paper Pad.  Here are the new items you see...

Both cards are fantastic!! I'm really loving the sentiments in this release from ODBD. The "stand firm in your faith" is so encouraging while the verse about letting "the waves hit your feet" is just FUN. Both would be great additions to a crafter's supply of products!!
