Follow Your Heart


Sharing a card from a set that is “wedding themed” but I like that it’s versatile with this little sentiment too!

This is Happy Wedding Day, Wedding Wishes Collection (beautiful paper!!), and Heart Topiary. Pretty simple really. The topiary is quick and easy to color and cut with the die! I love that Ornate Hearts matches the paper design!

A little hard to tell, but the sentiment and topiary are embossed.

Today we’re taking a look back at the June release from Our Daily Bread Designs. This release is mainly a wedding theme but I think this card would work great for an anniversary too!

For my card I used, Happily Ever After, Wedding Wishes Collection, Scalloped Chain, and Mr & Mrs. I also used Ovals, Layered Lacey Ovals, and Bitty Blossoms.

These Three Remain…


Sharing a card made with several of the new June releases from Our Daily Bread Designs.


I used the Scalloped Chain die, embossed only, for my background. Happy Wedding Day images colored and die cut with Heart Topiary, the verse stamped and cut with Ovals and layered on Layered Lacey Ovals cut from the beautiful Wedding Wishes Collection, also cutting Leafy Edged Borders, and Pierced Rectangles. The cute little birdies from the set are perched on the Fence die.

ODBD June Release!


Welcome to the June release from Our Daily Bread Designs! June is the most popular month for weddings and that’s just what this release is all about!

My first sample uses the set, Happily Ever After, the beautiful paper Wedding Wishes Collection, and the die Bride & Groom. I also used Pierced Ovals, Ovals, Ornate Ovals, Pierced Rectangles, and Layered Lacey Ovals.

I used Memento Gray Flannel ink to stamp the sentiment, it matches perfectly with the paper. I used the hearts that are cut out from one the Layered Lacey Ovals, colored them with a marker and glued over the stamped hearts.


My next sample uses the set Long Lasting Love, the die Scalloped Chain, and Wedding Wishes Collection. I also used Bitty Borders, Pierced Ovals, Ovals, and Layered Lacey Ovals.


I used white acrylic paint and my piercing tool to make the white flower centers. I also stenciled the Scalloped Chain while still in the die, sponging with pink ink.

Stamping the image on the lovely pattern paper made my cake look already decorated!

You’re So Sweet!

SeedsOfKnowA sd

Good morning! I’m sharing a quick card that could be used for so many occasions, I love versatility!!

This is ODBD Seeds of Knowledge, A+ Apples, Teacher’s Apples, all from the May release. Along with Bitty Blossoms, Double Stitched Pennant Flags, Pennant Flags, Snowflake Sky, Birthday Bash Collection, and Birthday Brights Collection.

The apple is colored with Copics, the edges of the flowers are lightly sponged with ink.

I elongated the pennants by cutting them  in pieces and hiding the spaces with the apple and the double ended pennant.

You’re A Class Act…

ClassActA ClipbdNotebk-open1

Today we’re looking back at the May release from Our Daily Bread Designs. I had a lot of fun creating this fun fold card using  Class Act, Notebook Paper stamp die/duo,  Clipboard Set, A+ Apples, Double Stitched Rectangles, Rectangles, Squares, Patriotic Collection, and Chalkboard Collection.

Here is the card closed

ClassActA ClipbdNotebkWM-clsd

And all the way open. The Chalkboard Collection is fun to stamp and emboss the sentiments on, just like the old boards!

It was fun making the “3 ring binder” with tabs!

ClassActA ClipbdNotebk-open2

ClassActA ClipbdNotebk-open3

Each section has several blank pages for a hand written note.

I cut the scissors in silver and black to make them more realistic. For the magnifying glass, I used the die to cut part of a stamp package and glued it to the back side.
