Happy New Year and welcome to the ODBD January Release


Happy New Year to all of my wonderful stamping friends all around the world....may God bless you all richly! I welcome you all to Our Daily Bread Designs January Release. This month the possibilities are endless with these wonderful stamps and the coordinating dies. For my first card I've used the "Joy in a Jar", "Apothecary Bottles" and the coordinating Custom Apothecary Bottles dies and this is what I have come up with

Extract of Mercy




Recipe:

Paper: Vintage Cream, textured lilac card stock, Designer Paper K&Company

Stamps: ODBD Joy in a Jar, Apothecary Bottles

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaFine Onyx Black, Copics

Accessories: Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8, ODBD Custom Apothecary Bottles, Antique Labels and Border, handmade dangle charm, seam binding, Cuttlebug embossing folder Juliet Damask

Size: 4.25" x 5.5"












This is my first card, what do you think? For my second project I chose to make a tag, I LOVE tags ;D

I started out with a recycled cracker box and cut the base layers with the Spellbinders Grand Labels 4 die, cut regular card stock in purple with that same die to cover the raw cardboard. The front side I embossed with the Juliet Damask embossing folder by Cuttlebug, cut two tags, one out  of the Designer Paper and a smaller one out of card stock with the Spellbinders Golden Labels 4 dies and stamped one of the "Lavender"  stamps on it. To embellish my tag I have used eyelet lace, Venise lace, flowers, pearls, a cameo and some more ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage die cuts, seam binding and purple lace and viola my tag was done. Check it out

The pleasantness of a Friend
