    For the Love of  Spellbinder’s Compatible  Hop

    Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design’s Alumni Team’s bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.   You may want to head over to the ODBD Blog to start from the beginning.


    This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop for the For the Love of ODBD Spellbinder’s Compatible sets! 

    For my card, I used the Dreams and Eternity stamp sets and the matching ODBD custom die made by Spellbinders!

    I used a combo of the inks to get the color I wanted to go with this paper. The quote was inked first with the rose coral then I tapped the pumpkin spice on top before stamping it and die cutting. I did the same with the Eternity frame.  On the quote layer, I left the die in place and sponged on some of the same inks.  A die cut flourish vine was added in between the two and a big bow in the lower right corner. The finished card is 6.25 x 4.50 (A6).

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  • Pomp & Circumstance

    For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT323) at Splitcoast, I went the easy route today and used a song for inspiration. I needed a grad card for my nephew and while making it, I kept hearing “Pomp & Circumstance” the whole time, lol. Since I was in the band all the way thru school, I bet I’ve played this song a million times.

    All images are Sparkle N Sprinkle. Anyway, I gold embossed the greeting and diploma and die cut w/ a Spellbinders circle. The ruffled gold is two cupcake liners that I split, removed the middles and put them together to form a lg circle. I used a MS diamonds edge punch on the black glitter dp and formed a circle w/ it. The final part of the medallion is just strips of metallic gold ribbon attached to the back. (I didn’t have time for a video, but I did take some pics so hopefully soon, I’ll have them up for you to see.)

    The black glossy layer is backed w/ a gold glitter dp layer. On the white layer, I used the CB swiss dots on top and the QK stripe label on the bottom. The stripes are very visible because I used them to line up and attach narrow strips of black and gold glitter dp. I saw some glitter striped dp in the store but it was the wrong color so I made my own to match. Finished card measures 5 x 6.5 (A6).

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
