    On my first card, I used The Earth, Vintage Pattern Mini 1,  the Circle Ornament dies and the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013.  After stamping the earth ornament and die cutting it, I added a die cut red bow, holly leaves and berries to the top. The left side of the cardinal paper was die cut and I added another die cut piece of red underneath to help define the border. The lt green/vanilla bg was stamped with Vintage Mini Pattern 1 and the green ink. The dk green is another sheet of the Christmas paper collection. I added a few die cut hanging stars to finish my 5.50 x 4.25 card.

    Julie Warner - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.comOn my second card, I used 4 inks to pounce/sponge color on white c/s then stamped the 2 large ornaments of the Vintage Pattern Ornament set w/ Versafine onyx. I wanted a much smaller ornament so I die cut a smaller circle and w/ the die still in place, I stamped the Vintage Pattern Mini 1 inside then drew the border w/ a fine black marker. I added a few dots w/ a white gel pen for some contrast. On the 2 border strips, I stamped the Vintage Pattern Mini 1 & Vintage Pattern Mini 2 and attached them to the front of my 4.25 x 5.50 card. The greeting was stamped with a combination of  red & green inks. The two smaller bows are from the stars die cut.

  • ODBD Dec Release Blog Hop

    Julie Warner - justwritedesigns https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com/Welcome to the December Our Daily Bread designs Release Blog Hop!

    If you came from Becca’s Blog, you are in the right place, but if you just happened on my blog you should go to the ODBD Blog and start from there, and if along the way any links are broken simply return to the ODBD blog where the entire list will be listed in order. Now on to my project!….. Click any picture to enlarge

    I’m using the smaller of the two beautiful ornament images on the new Ornaments set. You’ll notice that these ornaments fit perfectly inside the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament dies! That’s because Spellbinders chose ODBD as a Preferred Stamp Partner!  What does that mean? ODBD will be expanding their lines to include perfect match sentiments, Scriptures and images to Spellbinders dies. Pretty exciting!

    My ornament was gold embossed three times on vanilla card stock in order to layer the center of the ornament.  It was colored with markers and a water brush, the base ornament was die cut with the Spellbinders die and the other two centers were layered on top. The dk green/gold dot dp was cut with a Labels 10 die and all layers were edged with a gold leafing pen. The sentiment was also gold embossed and hand cut. A sheer ivory bow was added on top of the ornament. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50.
