Blessings in a Bottle - Our Daily Bread Designs

This month at Our Daily Bread Designs we are having fun with a wonderful new release! I will be sharing male card ideas throughout the month, not only for Father's Day but for every occasion! This week there's a Color Challenge for your inspiration. Here's what I created:



ODBD stamps used: Good Man, Apothecary Bottles / ODBD dies used: Flourished Star Pattern Die / ODBD paper used: Vintage Ephemera Collection


I used three different sheets from the new vintage papers. The labels I added to the stamped bottles were cut from one of the sheets. I like how the papers coordinate, and I also like how well they look on male cards. I colored the bottles with alcohol markers and added a few embellishments to finish the design.

I have a close-up video for June's release that I'm adding below. I invite you to check it out. I'm sharing other ODBD products on the video also!

  2. Love these bottles...I've sort of forgotten about them!!! This is really cool how you've turned them into men's tonic type, antique looking bottles! Great job on this guy card...it's hard for us girls who like flowers and lace to make guy cards isn't it? I find it hard anyway! This looks fantastic!

Before we go into today's giveaways details, I would love to share the first card I made with my new rubber stamp sets! This is one of my favorite flowers in the collection and I had to play with it right away! This set is called Amazing Things and it includes beautiful inspirational sentiments.


I stamped the flowers in black, using Umbrella Crafts Premium Dye Ink and colored the image with Spectrum Noir Makers Purples and Reds. I fussy cut the images using Westcott's Titanium Bonded Microtip Precision Scissors (…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
