Hello everyone!
Today Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing some more new goodies for us and

This first card above was made using the Our Daily Bread Designs Thanks A Melon Stamp Set and the Watermelon dies. I also used ODBD Doily Die, ODBD Foliage and Leaves Die, ODBD Circles, Pierced Circles, and Double Stitched Circles as well as the ODBD Fence Die.

Papers used:
ODBD Patriotic Collection, white and red card stock.
The melons, fence, and foliage die were die cut on white crd stock and colored with
Spectrum Noir. I added a little hand-stitching using Lizbeth thread (in Juicy Watermelon.)

This second card was created using ODBD Sending You Sunshine Stamp Set and the coordinating Sandcastle Die. After stamping and die cutting the sandcastle on white card stock, I colored it up with Spectrum Noir. I used the ODBD Doily Die, the ODBD Ovals and ODBD Pierced Ovals, and a detail die from ODBD Leafy Edged borders. The paper is from ODBD's new By The Shore Collection.

Thank you for stopping by!

  9. Great designs! The watermelon card is fun and refreshing with its summery theme & vibrant colors. But the second card speaks to the soul with an encouraging verse from the Bible and soft hues. Both are fantastic! We all need equal doses of fun & faith in life, I think! ๐Ÿ˜Š
