The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday March 5 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on March 6 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Marble Feathers Bg! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

To make my Easter card, I started by white embossing the Marble Feathers Bg onto white card stock, then I used the Distress inks to sponge the color over it for a pretty pastel bg. The Three Ducks were stamped onto the X-Press it c/s and colored w/ Copics. I used my into the window die cutting technique to cut the frame, leaving the ducks attached to it at the bottom. 

I wanted the frame w/ the ducks to be elevated from the bg, so I used those leftover pieces & strips of c/s we all have & usually throw away, and glued them to the back side to add stability & depth. The Spring die was cut 3 times & stacked to match the depth of the frame.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

Welcome to the North Coast Creations February Release! Just in time for Easter! We have some adorable images & a matching die for this sweet little chick. 
To make my little Chickie Easter card, after stamping & die cutting the sweet chick, I die cut a white panel first w/ the largest pierced rectangle die then I used a double stitched square to cut out the opening. I came across a white pegboard die cut from ages ago & thought it looked good behind the opening. A blue stripe paper was added behind it then the chick, greeting, some clouds, the sun & some grass were added to fill in the spring scene. I used a Copic marker to add some darker green streaks to the pale green grass & after die cutting it, I used a smaller pierced rectangle to add the piercing along the bottom & sides of the grass.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

My second card features this modern Easter Egg frame image & eggs. I knew I wanted to go w/ a pink/purple palette and when I came across the Chalkboard Vine emboss resist bg already done in these colors, I used it for my large background.
After stamping the oval egg frame w/ the grape ink, I colored it, die cut it w/ a large oval then added some stickles. The greeting part was colored, die cut & added to a pierced purple oval layer. The fussy cut eggs where added in the lower corner.

Here are the Copics I used.

Under the Sea 07323 Time to Fly 06268 Beautiful Lily 07263
The Our Daily Bread designs Anniversary Week continues! Today some members of the Design Team are sharing with you their own top 3 personal favorites from 2015! I’m anxious to see what everyone picked, aren’t you? 

Prize Information:
Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $15 gift certificate to the ODBD Store just for commenting on the Design Team cards! You have until March 22, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win! The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 24th, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

For my favorites, I tried to pick a variety & also some that didn’t use a lot of the same images the rest of the team picked. So while I may have a couple of other top faves, these 3 fit that bill. 
Under the Sea 07323
This is one of my favorites because it’s a little different & I just like the way it turned out. For all the details, closeups & inside, please click this title & it will take you to that post. Under the Sea.
Time to Fly 06268
This is another I just liked the way it turned out. It uses one of my favorite techniques, embossing resist. I like the monochromatic color & mix of images. For all the details, closeups & inside please click this title. Time to Fly.
Beautiful Lily 07263
My last favorite I like because of the unusual color combo & the slightly tricky way I had to handle the lilies & greeting oval. For all the details, closeups & inside, please click the title. Beautiful Lily.
