We’re Looking Back at the ODBD August Release


Our Daily Bread designs

Today we’re taking a look back at the ODBD August release, and I’m still wishing I was at the beach!!! Sigh….

Here is what I used for my card today along with an older set, Happy Retirement.

Our Daily Bread designs






Flip Flop Border Die






I stamped the beach scene in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics, waves are white gel pen, cut with Labels 21, and added some twine.

The sand dollar from Ocean Treasures, flip flops from Life is Better are both stamped in Ranger Brushed Corduroy and clear embossed. The sand dollar is hand cut. I used that fun Flip Flop Border die for the flip flops.

The base is a Sizzix embossing folder sponged with Brushed Corduroy. The sentiment is stamped in Ranger Jet Black and clear embossed, cut with Fancy Framed Tags II, and sponged.


If YOU happen to be close enough to the beach… think of me! Stick your toes in the sand, walk in the surf, gather some shells….. Enjoy!

And for more August creations, visit the ODBD blog and my sister sticks!
