ODBD August Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs August Release Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from the blog of the lovely, talented Sandee, you are in the right place. If not, you should start at the ODBD Blog (link) so you don’t miss anyone, and don’t miss a chance to win! If any of the links are broken along the way, you can always pop back to that post for the complete list of links.

Aren’t these new release images fabulous? I know they make beautiful bookmarks, but with a little masking, they also make great silhouette scenes. And the coordinating bookmark dies are just over the moon wonderful!Julie Warner - justwritedesigns https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/

To start, I used the smaller bookmark die to cut the three long panels. In order to have the same cut on both ends, I die cut to the center, take it out, turn the die around and cut the other end the same as the first. With the die still in place, I stamped different parts of the Bookmark Tree image across the bottoms of the panels.

For the quote panel, I stamped only the sun/eagle part of the image and the quote, masked them and stamped a portion of the trees. It was die cut with a rectangle die. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

Psssssst… I also made this for Susan’s fabulous Dare to Get Dirty Challenge on Splitcoast!

  56. Hi Julie~

    This is so creative! I love the colors, they are so very Florida! Did you know we have many eagles here? I love this Scripture. It was very interesting how you set the three parts next to each other…and used the stamps in different areas–instead of on one bookmark. I just LOVE this!
