ODBD July Release!

Julie Warner - http:///thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com

Hello and welcome to the ODBD July New Release! Grace is on vacation this month so Kelley is in charge and she’s  going to change it up a bit! We will not be having a regular blog hop, but Kelley will be posting all of the Design Teams cards on the ODBD Blog and links to their blogs. 


Starting this month our Alumni Team will no longer be posting on Thursdays but will now be joining in on our New Release Posts to bring you even more inspiration for our new stamps!


Some news about the ODBD Designers….

  • Angella Crockett and Audrey Hiltke are moving to the Alumni Team!
  • Cathy McCauley is moving to the Design Team!
  • Deb Saaranen is on hiatus for a few months since she is moving
  • Kathy Roney is leaving the Challenge Team and we will miss her!!
  • Connie McCotter and Betty Wright are leaving the Alumni Team and we will miss them also! Connie and Betty have been on our team for many years and Betty has been the Alumni Team Coordinator for a couple years!
  • Cheryl Scrivens is joining us on the Challenge Team!!

Lots of changes but we’ll still be bringing you the same wonderful images and designs!

On my first card, I white embossed the sentiment on teal card stock and die cut it w/ a mega oval die. The rest of the framing was die cut w/ the  radiant rectangles dies. I cut two each of the radiant rectangle dies and the oval and sandwiched a piece of vellum in between them so it would look as pretty on the inside as on the outside. I added some pearls to my 6 x 4.50 card.

n my second card, I silver embossed the swirly cake on black card stock and die cut w/ a Labels 4 die. The silver layer behind it was die cut w/ Gold Labels 4 die. I used a white gel pen to color in the little hearts and went over the center hearts w/ a red Micron pen. The black background was stamped w/ white pigment ink using the Brocade Background. I let it dry a bit before sprinkling on white embossing powder and heat embossing it.
