A Look Back at Our Daily Bread Designs' August Release

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs' August Release.  Today I have three cards to share including the one posted here.  This card features the August release items, Teamwork stamp set, All Star Jersey stamp set and coordinating Sports Jerseys Die.  For more inspiration using the August Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog along with my design team sisters. (The links are at the end of today's post.)
For the first card, I started with a black card stock base and added a white CS mat.  I chose a bit of black and white Designer paper from ODBD's Chalkboard Paper Collection.  And why did I choose these unusual colors!  The High School I graduated from...  were black and gold!  I stamped the jerseys on yellow DP from the Birthday Brights Paper Pad and used the coordinating Sports Jerseys Die set to cut the gold stamped image and a black CS layer to go underneath.  I simply cut along the "sleeves" on the jersey image and nested it on top of the black die cut.  I just love the dimension!  The phrases also came from the All Star Jersey stamp set.  I simply used a black marker to fill in the text.  The number one, was created with the Sports Jerseys Die set.  The polka dot DP used came from the Birthday Brights Paper Pad.  The stars (created with white card stock and Sparkling Stars Die) were nestled behind and top of the polka dot layer.  And for the final touch, I stamped the sentiment (from the Teamwork stamp set) with black ink on white CS and used the Pennant Flags Die to die cut and emboss.  

It is really hard to find golf related stamps.  Even though, my husband DOES NOT golf, I have several friends who do.  So I was super excited to see this release!  And it has the coordinating die with it!  Even better!  I started with white card stock for my base and added a base Designer Paper layer from the Boho Bolds Paper Pad (the soft blue and the polka dot design).  I sandwiched a white mat CS layer between the two.  The final layers, including the sand trap, grass and polka dot sky were framed and die cut with ODBD's Pierced Rectangles Die.  I created the sand traps using the Leafy Edged Borders Die.  The grass was created with the Grass Hill Die.  The Ephemera Essentials Paper Pad provided the soft sand DP for my faux "trap."  I stamped the image from the new Golf Stamp Die Duo on Copic compatible paper and after coloring used the coordinating die to cut it out.  The sentiment may also be found on the new Golf Stamp Die Duo.  Copic colors used here...  C1, C2, C3,C4, C7, 100


So for today's final card, I worked with some lovely plaids and patriotic colors found in the Old Glory Paper Pad.  I also used a soft brown from the Ephemera Essentials Paper Pad to create the clipboard.  I used the Clipboard Set Die to created the sentiment frame and used the Teamwork stamp set for my sentiment.  A few stars scattered about (from the Sparkling Stars Die set) add a fun touch.  The Double Stitched Rectangles Die provided the perfect touch for the red sentiment mat.  I used a fun blue (Memento's Blue Danube) and red (Lady Bug) for the sentiment itself.  A bit of baker's twine tied around the faux clipboard finish it off!

Here is my first card featuring the new Football Stamp Die Duo...
 I started with a polka dotted base (ODBD's Birthday Brights Paper Pad and a white mat.  I chose a bit of green card stock from my stash and used a die from the Double Stitched Rectangles set.  I added a few white stripes (to mimic yard lines) and stamped my sentiment (Football Stamp Die Duo) on white card stock.  The fun football (also from this set) was colored with Copics.  I added the final Touchdown sentiment framed with the Pennant Flags Die set. The new set shown above...
So here is another sports themed project using the new Basketball Stamp Die Duo. 

I found the burgundy, blue and plaid papers in one of my old favorites, Old Glory Paper Pad.  I created a net panel with white card stock and ODBD's Lattice Background Die and nested Rectangles Die.  I stamped the image (from the NEW Basketball Stamp Die Duo) with black Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it accordingly.  And the new set you see used above...

And for my final card today, I chose a couple of NEW sets, Teamwork and All Star Jersey and coordinating Sports Jerseys Die.

My go to paper pad on this project was also the Old Glory Paper Pad.  I stamped the sentiment from the NEW Team Work stamp set on white card stock and after embossing added a soft sponged blue ink.  The jersey (from the NEW All Star Jersey) was stamped on red DP and white card stock before fussy cutting and combining the two.  The numeral (also from All Star Jersey) was die cut and embossed using the coordinating Sports Jerseys Die along with the jersey.  A few random stars finish the card.  Here are the NEW items you see above...
