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.

Video Tutorial: Quick New Year's Card with Simple Stories & Deco Foil

I'm back with a fun and really easy to make card for the Holidays or the New Year and I have a video tutorial with Therm O Web today. I'm sure we all are rushing at the very last minute looking for tags and cards and wrapping gifts... I know I always am. That is why my latest Holiday projects have been on the quick and easy side so you can try them out if you need to! The usual theme for New Year's cards is usually monochromatic, metallic... But, what if we used colorful Holiday colors instead? Why not? Well, this time you'll see me use papers from Simple Stories Very Merry Collection. Video Tutorial This is short and sweet video tutorial where I show you how I put together this card. Really with card designing the hard part is figuring out what you want your card to look like in the end but once you have figured out what elements you'll be adding and where you will be placing them the card comes together pretty fast. So the behind the scenes may not ha

WINNERS + Last Minute Gifts for Christmas: Apron Gift Card Holders

Christmas is upon us and I know many of us end up wrapping gifts and making tags and cards in a rush on Christmas Eve. So I am planning ahead preparing some outside of the box last minute gift ideas. This time I'm sharing these cute Christmas Apron gift / money holders! New Holiday Traditions Papers These sweet aprons look perfect thanks to our new digital papers from Holiday Traditions . You can find those here . They are super affordable and you can print them as many times as you like to recreate the same look on several projects. Also, I was able to get to aprons per printed 8 1/2" by 11" sheet. I printed them in a regular inkjet printer and used it to cut the pieces of this SVG file. I used the Precious Giftables cartridge -or should I say Christmas giftables- by the lovely Anna Griffin. It includes two pocketsm, one that you can see on the pictures to place a small card, and another one on the back that is perfect for your money gifts. So yes, they are
