I love the soft, springy colors in these new paper collections! I used both Easter Card Collection 2016 and Pastel Paper Pack 2016, stamping the verse in Dusty Concord and Jet Black and coloring the heart flourish with a purple copic.
Also used,
Beautiful Borders die (cutting off the extra as I just wanted a little of the die showing), and Fancy Fritillary die.

How fun is it to see a flock of newborn lambs out in a field!! And now made easier with the awesome new die, Little Lamb that coordinates with The Shepherd and Sheep Single! Colored with copics and white gel pen. I love the 3-D effect with the Z-fold from Fun and Fancy Folds. Again, love the colors in the Pastel Paper Pack!

LittleLambZ-Easter-open WT
Opened, it has more lambs!! And the Flourished Happy Easter, stamped in Colorbox Wisteria. I stamped and die cut more of the daffodils and added Fence die. 

All the February info can be found on the ODBD blog.
And be sure to visit my sister sticks and their awesome samples!

A Look Back at January…ODBD

Today we’re reviewing the January release from Our Daily Bread designs.
For my samples today used from January…

I decided to go with a little different size card for a change, this one measures 3.5x6. I had the “negative” piece of pink cardstock left from a previous card and it was just the right size to fit Double Stitched Rectangles, then I filled it with Wishing cut from a piece of Shabby Rose Collection. I stamped the birthday greeting from Wishing Words onto another piece and again used Double Stitched Rectangles.
I stamped Trois Jolis Papillons and Butterfly and Bugs onto some more Shabby Rose scraps and cut with Trois Papillons and Butterfly and Bugs die. I also used the Doily die.


YourHeartShrinkWM
I started by masking off part of the inside, sponging Distress Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass, then stamped Your Heart.
But….now what to do with the front!
I haven’t played with shrink plastic in like…FOREVER!

YourHeartShrink-clsupHow cute are these!
I stamped Your Heart twice with Archival Jet Black, colored the back side with Copics, handcut the pieces, punched the holes and heated with my heat tool.

My charms are hanging from a spray from Lovely Leaves and Fancy Foliage.

My card features ODBD Safe Travels, Wishing Words, Wishing die, Circles die, Double Stitched Circles die, Double Stitched Rectangles die and Boho Background die (embossed only), and lined envelope stamped with Boho Paisley Background.
Colored with Copics, then ‘snowed up’ with a Marvy Snow pen which I heated to puff, and finally for some “frosty glitz”, a generous spritzing of Glimmer Mist!

If you do bible journaling or just want to stamp in your personal journal, these stamps were created for just that! You’ll see samples when you visit the rest of team. These stamps also work great for a card or bookmark!

YourHeartWM

For my card, I stamped Your Heart once in Memento Rich Cocoa for the base, then stamped again inking up the banners and heart in Memento Nautical Blue and Colorbox Chalk Warm Red, I then hand cut each and popped them up over the base.

I also used Double Stitched Rectangles, elongating the rectangle a bit and Beautiful Borders dies. This card fits a regular envelope 3 5/8 x 6 1/2.

Taking a Look Back at December….ODBD

Our Daily Bread designs
Today I'm reviewing some of the December release from Our Daily Bread designs. I needed a birthday card and the Double Stitched Circle dies worked perfectly for balloons, I also used Happy Birthday dies and Beautiful Boho Collection!

I also made an easel Christmas card using Double Stitched Rectangles dies, Rectangles dies and a sentiment from Living Water, also Medium Bow dies, Christmas Paper Collection 2013, and Merry Christmas dies. I used the paper pad cover for my main panel, covering the wording with the 'ribbon and bow'.
