Fall has officially been with us for a week or so. However, it doesn't really feel like fall for me until the first day of October. This is when I launch into full creative mode! I start prepping the house for the harvest season. There are chrysanthemums on my front porch and a scarecrow to greet those who enter. And I have even starting adding to my Christmas decorating stash! So it seems only natural to be working on fall projects and adding a few more cards to my Christmas stash! This month, Our Daily Bread Designs' added THREE paper pads, stamp sets and dies designed to help make your own shaped cards! And the best part... they cover both fall and Christmas projects. So you can be creating both just like I am! I can't wait to share the two projects I have for you today! I did one for both fall and winter! Don't forget to check at the end of today's post for info about this month's blog hop! And be sure to come back each Friday to see a special project featuring this month's release!
So here my first project featured the new Be a Sunflower stamp set, coordinating Sunflower Die, Follow the Son Paper Pad, coordinating Fall Favorites Paper Pad, Rounded Rectangles Die, Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles Die and the lovely Stitched Leaves Die.
I started with a the Rounded Rectangles Die to create my base and added another layer of chocolate DP from the new Fall Favorites Paper Pad, Rounded Rectangles Die. I then pulled out another DP from the collection and used the coordinating Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles Die to create my next layer. I stamped the sunflower image (Be A Sunflower) on Copic compatible paper and colored each image before using the new Sunflower Die to cut each out. I added a white die cut fence to the bottom and stamped my sentiment on Kraft paper before die cutting it as well. I also added a few of the new Stitched Leaves Die using a few of the rich colors found in the new Follow the Son Paper Pad. The same sheets are also available in the coordinating Fall Favorites Paper Pad. So here are a few of the items you see here...
and a couple of old favorites
For my second project, I chose to use the new Card Greetings stamp set, Ice Skate Die, Pine Branches Die, Christmas Coordinating 2015 Paper Pad along with a few old favorites including the Christmas Collection 2015 Paper Pad, Pinecones Die, Rectangles and Pierced Rectangles Die and Pierced Ovals Die. I started with a white card stock base (4.25 x 5.5 inches; gate folded) and added a bit of striped paper from the new Christmas Coordinating 2015 Paper Pad and die cut with the Pierced Rectangles Die. The top DP layer (found in the Christmas Collection 2015 Paper Pad set) was die cut with ODBD's Rectangles die. I cut a slightly larger white CS mat. I chose to piece together the lovely skates (Ice Skate Die) using white, black and silver card stock. I added a bit of lacing (also in the die set) and nestled the pair over a faux pine branch. I created this using the new Pine Branches Die and nestled in a faux pine cone using an old favorite, Pinecones Die. I stamped the sentiment (Card Greetings) on a rich green DP (Christmas Coordinating 2015 Paper Pad) and then die cut it with Pierced Ovals Die.
So here are the NEW items you see here...
