Our Daily Bread Designs April 2016 New Releases- Quilts!


Hello everyone!

Today's cards have been created using Our Daily Bread Designs newest
goodies for April and they all are quilt themed!!! 

This first card was made using the new ODBD Star Quilt Stamp and ODBD Quilted With Love Stamp Set.   I also used the ODBD Small Bow Die, ODBD Beautiful Borders Die, ODBD Double Stitched Squares Die  and ODBD Squares Die .  This beautiful paper is from the
ODBD Cozy Quilt Collection

To make the little lace around the square I took one of the Beautiful Border dies and cut it down to fit. I added little die cut hearts to the corners where the pieces met up.   I stamped the quilt in "Rhubarb Stalk" Memento Ink (it is a reddish color) and colored it up with Spectrum Noir.

You can find the ODBD Blog here for more information:

This second card was made using ODBD Log Cabin Quilt Die, the ODBD Quilted With Love Stamp Set and the ODBD Americana Quilt Collection.

I die cut three of the Americana Quilt papers and then die cut a forth one from Bazzill Diamond card stock for the frame. I used a few pieces from each of the Americana Quilt papers to make a little pattern (and all the extra pieces are being used to make more quilts for cards.)

To put the quilt together I covered a piece of regular white card stock with ATG and then put the frame down first. I was then able to lay in all of the other pieces right onto the
sticky ATG inside the frame. 

I also used the ODBD Beautiful Borders Die, ODBD Ornate Hearts Die (for the little heart), and the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangles

  19. Love you to pieces. I love that sentiment. I can't tell you how many pieces of material I've cut and sewn. I love these cards. The variation on the log cabin is very nice. There is sew much you can do with these dies. Beautiful colors. I wish my grandmother and aunts were alive to see these.
