Thinking of You… A Look Back at ODBD April Release

Our Daily Bread designs

Ahh, April… a beautiful month! Flowers starting to pop up, grass is green. I’m thinking of YOU and hoping in your neck of the woods you’re enjoying the beauty too!

Welcome, today we’re taking a look back at the April release from ODBD! It never ceases to amaze me that the design team can have the same stamps, dies, and paper yet still come up with a diverse myriad of samples! It’s awesome! Are you loving these new backgrounds? I AM!!!

For more April inspiration, visit the ODBD blog

Here is what I used for my sample today

I stamped the Chalkboard Vine Background in Iced Spruce Distress ink….LOVE that color! Using the same ink, I stamped the delicate Flourish Label Borders onto the Vintage Flourish Pattern die cut. 


Now, are you trying to figure where the Ornamental Crosses are? The flowers! And, yes, Beautiful Borders, sponged with the same ink while still in the die, too!

In case you missed seeing this one on Splitcoast, done for a challenge last week…


I even made an envelope to match! This card uses Quote Collection 4, Elegant Ovals, He Watches Me with the matching Sparrow Die, and again, Beautiful Borders. The inks used for the Chalkboard Vine Background are ColorBox Chalk Wisteria and Lime Pastel.  

For more inspiration,
see what the other sticks created!
