Some Christmas and Patina…ODBD Elegant Ovals


I’m sharing some samples for our Feature Focus item this month, ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders "Elegant Ovals" Die set!
You can see more on the ODBD blog here.

Here are the sets I used for my cards
Eternity and Elegant Oval Frames
You Will Find Refuge 
and Turtle Dove Ornament

These dies would be a great addition to your collection, just wait till you see some of the samples by the DT!!



The last show I worked with Kelley, I was captivated by a demo on VerDay Paint… I had to buy a kit! The thin cardboard is painted with Bronze and Copper, then I painted Bronze {on the stamp} and stamped the Eternity ‘oval’ on the die cut and spritzed with the Patina. After drying, I stamped the quote with Onyx Black.


I painted the thin cardboard base the same, dry embossed, then sponged on some Bronze and spritzed. Same with the foliage.
Gives a cool look, don’t you think?!




And another, layering the Elegant Ovals {stamped with Elegant Oval Frames} with other Spellbinder dies.


Thanks for stopping and I hope I’ve piqued your interest to visit Our Daily Bread designs and check out the Exclusive Spellbinders "Elegant Ovals" Die set
