As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by December 22 at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC42. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.

So, are you ready to see which three I chose?  All right, here we go

                                                                                ornament, red, gold

Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, Scarlet Jewel, Memory Box Spiceberry

Stamps:  ODBD Ornaments

Ink: VersaMark, Ranger Detail golden embossing powder, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Aged Mahogany, Shabby Shutters

Accessories: Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments, gold ribbon, ivory crochet lace, Recollections golden half pearls, Sizzix embossing folder Sugar

I stamped the ornament unto Vintage Cream card stock in VersaMark and embossed it with Ranger Detail embossing powder. The poinsettia is colored in with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Aged Mahogany and a paintbrush. The tip of the paintbrush was misted with a little water to make the ink go on easier.  I did not have golden card stock so I simply smeared my VersaMark ink pad over the edges of the cut out ornament and embossed it with Ranger Detail embossing powder in gold.

So, which three of the above list are you going to choose? Are you ready to get stamping? If you need just a little more inspiration head on over to see what

have come up with. You will love the creations of these ever so talented ladies!!  All of the above details can also be found on the ODBD Blog.

Well, since this is our last challenge for this year I will say

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

to all of you, my stamping friends!!!

I pray that you all are richly blessed this Christmas Season and that you will join me again for some more of this wonderful ODBD Challenge in the new year!!!  We will have a few changes and some exciting news, so please come back in the New Year, on 8.
