ODBD March New Releases "Key to Happiness" & "Superstar"



Hello everyone! I am so excited to be a guest design team member for
Our Daily Bread Designs this month. 

Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing two new stamp sets today! This first card above was made using the "Keys to Happiness" set.  There are five sentiments in this set and each one shares
a great little bit of wisdom.

The circles were cut using Our Daily Bread Design's "Double Stitched Circles" and "Circles" dies.  These two sets work great together for when you want to alternate a regular circle with a detailed, stitched one.

I also used ODBD's "Lovely Leaves" die set, the ODBD "Bitty Blossoms Dies" set, the ODBD "Keys" die, and the ODBD "Blushing Rose Collection" papers.   I did some inlay work in the squares using the "Bitty Blossoms" dies because they are the perfect size for this (less than one inch each.) 




This second card was made using the new ODBD "Superstar" stamp set.  I created the background by stamping the three different stars included in the set, die cut the panel with the "Double Stitched Rectangles" die and the star using "Double Stitched Stars", added some "Beautiful Borders", and used ODBD's "Pastel Paper Pack" papers for it all.

Prize Information:
Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store just for commenting on the Design Team cards! You have until March 2, 2016 at 9:00p.m. EST to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 3rd, so be sure to check  back there to see if you won! 


Please be sure to visit all of the design team blogs for more inspiration!
