Welcome to the ODBD April Release Hop!


Hello and welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs April Release Hop!  We have lots of gorgeousness to share with you all today and that is not an April Fools joke. This time around there are TWO, yes, you have heard right, two new die sets, and lots of stamps and even two new paper collections. For my first project today I have chosen the absolutely stunning background stamp "Chalkboard Vine BG" so awesome, and so gorgeous even in any other color besides the chalkboard norm black. To see it better, please make sure you click on the below picture to enlarge my card picture. I've stamped the background in Memento New Sprout, so soft a pretty. The cross is from the ODBD Custom Ornamental Crosses die set, the cool looking overlay there is the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern........LOVE it! The sentiment is from the set "The Cross" check it out

For my second card, I did not use any stamps.....say what?  Yes, I put the ink pad aside for a minute and took total advantage of the absolutely amazing new paper collections that are being released today. The first one is called "ODBD Christian Faith Collection" and the second is called "Chalkboard Collection" and to represent God, I've used one of the crosses from the "Ornamental Crosses" and the label looking die cuts are from the "Vintage Flourish Pattern". Have a look at my very simple, but oh so powerful card
