More on that shortly… stay tuned to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and the SCS Forum for further details. For now… just be sure to be back on Jan 9 when our first Challenge of the New Year will kick off!

    OK… now on to my card: I used the new ODBD Confirmation set.  All the images were gold embossed and all panels were edged with a gold leafing pen. A little color was added to the image using markers and a blender pen. I used Spellbinders labels 4 to cut out my main panels and a border punch to punch down the sides of the ivory panel. I left the die in place and sponged on a little Brilliance gold ink. The beautiful background paper is from the Juliette collection from SEI.

    From here hop to Lorelie’s blog to see what great inspiration she has for you today!

    Have fun hopping, and Happy New Year from the Our Daily Bread designs Bread Basket!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  • ISC Christmas Card Extravaganza- Day 3

    Welcome to Day 3 of our 1st ever Christmas Card Extravaganza – ISC Blog Hop  (Final Day)!

    Glittering Tree Silhouette 3620a1

    For my Glittering Tree Silhouette, I used the new sheet Eclectic Christmas. The tree profile was stamped w/ white pigment ink onto red linen c/s and embossed w/ a glittery white powder. I like the way the embossing looks on the linen textured c/s. I cut a frame using a Spellbinders nestie rectangle, edged the frame w/ a white marker, then inserted it back in its original place. It’s layered a few times alternating white and green.

    The distressed text background was stamped using a Kaleidacolor pad.  The flourish image was overstamped and embossed w/ a red tinsel powder.  I used cranberry pigment ink and this same red tinsel ep to do the greeting.  A nestie long rectangle was used to cut out the greeting, then I used the end only of the label 4 to recut the ends.

    I used hole punches to punch out the red tinsel embossed dots to be used as faux brads.
