Know that God will - ODBD Color Inspiration

unHello and welcome to a new month of wonderful new releases and challenges at Our Daily Bread Designs. Our first challenge of the month is a Color Inspiration challenge. This week's palette is so pretty!



I decided to use lilac, teal and soft blue for the challenge combining metallic cardstocks and a delicate polka dot pattern from the Christmas Paper Collection 2014 for my 5" by 5" card.

I am excited about the new die sets released this month and today I'm sharing a card I made using the new Layered Lacey Squares Dies. This time I altered the largest square to create a nice frame around the center of the card.

I die cut two large squares from lilac cardstock and cut them in a little over a half. I adhered both pieces in diagonal orientation but very close to each other on the center, almost as if creating a larger square with the die cut pieces. Before adding a blue lacey square on the center I added two pieces of ribbon diagonally. Now, the blue square on the center is also altered, but you can certainly skip that step if you want to.

For the central label I stamped first a subtle lilac background using the new Amazing Grace stamp. Then I stamped a sentiment from the recently released God Quotes stamp set in black. Once I stenciled the label I decided I'd add some nice pearls and rhinestones to finish the design. Oh, and I also folded the lace borders inwards to add dimension!

I hope you enjoyed today's post! To see all the projects created for ODBDSLC233 or to join the challenge click here. You have until April 12, 2015 at 8:00pm EDT to join us.

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 …

Today I'm using stamps from -You are Loved-. I couldn't resist foiling this romantic rose on vellum. To give the card a soft contrast I used one of the new watercolor Deco Foil, that actually has different tones of lilac and purple allowing the image to really glow and stand out. I colored the back of the vellum with magenta using a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.

The sentiment was also foiled on whi…
