Our Daily Bread Designs Many Blessings


Hello everyone!
Today's cards were made using the new Our Daily Bread Designs Many Blessings Stamp/Die Duo. This set comes with the Blessings word die and 14 little sentiment words that go with it. 

The card above was made by creating a patchwork background using ODBD Christian Faith Collection papers and Bazzill Diamond card stock. I cut 1 1/16 inch squares and arranged them on the card front. I then pierced around each of the squares and hand stitched using Omega White Thread.  I embellished using ODBD Ornamental Crosses and ODBD Ornate Ovals. 

For this second card I used ODBD Christian Faith Collection paper as the background and die cut the largest ODBD Ornate Oval from the Bazzill Diamond card stock. I also used ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles to create the frame and ODBD Pierced Ovals along with another cross from ODBD Ornamental Crosses Die set. 

Thank you for stopping by!

The patterned paper is from ODBD Americana Quilt Collection and the red and blue papers are from the ODBD Old Glory Paper Pad.

This second card was made using ODBD new Thanks For Everything Stamp/Die Duo. I also used the new ODBD Flower Lattice Strip to create the background, I die cut four of them, colored them with ink, and then framed them with ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles. 

Also used: ODBD Pierced Ovals, ODBD Ovals, ODBD Layered Lacey Ovals, ODBD Bitty Blossoms, and ODBD Lovely Leaves. 

The lavender papers are from ODBD Pastel Paper Pack. 

I used a little dimensional adhesive under the lavender frame, added some pearls to the flowers, and finished it off with a little ribbon.

Bo Bunny Emoji Stamp Set


Hello everyone! I recently came across a stamp set by BoBunny 
called Emoji Stamps and I had to have it. 
You can find it here:
I created these cards using Our Daily Bread Designs Double Stitched Rectangles and ODBD Double Stitched Circles.  The yellow polka dot paper is from Our Daily Bread Designs Birthday Brights and I used yellow and white card stock. 

The emojis are stamped in Black Memento Ink and heat embossed with clear extra fine embossing powder. I colored them with Spectrum Noir CT3. I used the smallest die in the ODBD Double Stitched Circles set to die cut the emojis.

I wanted the emojis to pop so they are on dimensional adhesive. I also used a rectangle of craft foam under the white and yellow panel so that it would set up off of the yellow polka dot paper.  

Thank you for stopping by!
