Welcome Friends!! Today North Coast Creations (sister company to Our Daily Bread Designs)  has an awesome and fun release!! If you are looking for animal themed or need to create baby card or kid's birthday cards, this release is a must have.  

Today I am sharing 4 cards I created with 2 of the 3 stamp sets being released today.  These stamp sets include coordinating dies for cutting out the animals and creating 3d images. Each of the cards will have the stamps and dies used from  North Coast Creations or Our Daily Bread Designs.

My first two creations are made using the Go Wild Stamps and Dies.  It was so fun to color these images with copics and create these mini scenes.

My first project uses the fun Tri-shutter card die and the coordinating Tri-Shutter Layer Dies which makes creating this special fold card so easy with amazing results!!! This card uses sentiments from the new Remembrance stamp set as well the Stars and Stripes 6x6 Paper Pad.  The card was embellished with balloons from the Happy Birthday die set as well as the Sparkling Stars and Double Stitched Star dies.  The sentiments are framed and cut from the Layered Lacey Ovals, Pierced Circles, Circles and Ovals dies.

My second creation is another tri-shutter card created with the amazing Tri-shutter card die and coordinating Tri-shutter layers.  The sentiments are from the Remembrance stamps set.  The background is layered with the Stars and Stripes 6x6 Paper pad.  The front is embellished with a decorative sentiment die cut using the Thank You die.  It includes additional stars cut using the Sparkling Stars and Double Stitched Star dies from gold metallic card stock, white card stock and Stars and Stripes Designer paper.  The sentiments are framed with the Ovals, Pierced Ovals, Circles, and Pierced Circles.

My last creation is a simple top fold card which I created with the Defining Forces stamp set.  I just love this sentiment!  The background is created with Kraft paper which was embossed using the Lattice Backgrounds Die and stars cut out with the Double Stitched Stars.  A piece of solid red paper from the Stars and Stripes paper is placed behind it.  Stars were then cut from scraps of the Stars and Stripes 6x6 paper using the Sparkling Stars dies to be adhered in the precut stars of the background.  The sentiment is die cut using the Vintage Labels die.  The outside frame is created using the Pierced Rectangles dies and Double Stitched Rectangles dies.

Hello Friends!! Welcome to the ODBD July Release!!  It is a perfect summer release as we think about sun and summer!! You won't want to miss all the inspiration from the ODBD Breadbasket (ODBD design team).


Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "ODBD stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards on their blogs!  You have until July 2, 2017, at 9:00 p.m. EST to leave your comments for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on July 3rd, so be sure to check back to see if you won!

Today I have two projects to share with you.  The first card I am sharing with you is created using the  new Bon Voyage stamp set, Ferns dies, and Frangipani dies, as well as the previously released Lavish Layers, Ovals, Pierced Rectangles dies, and Boho Bold 6x6 paper pack.

The image is sponged using a circles die and several bright inks to create the sunset.  After die cutting the Frangipani die I traced the embossed sections with copics and wet the flower so I could shape it for a more 3d flower.


 The second card is created using the new released Bon Voyage stamp set, Frangipani dies, and Fern Dies as well as the previously released Doily Dies, Pierced Rectangles dies, Lavish Layers dies, Beautiful Borders dies and the Boho Bold 6x6 Paper Pack.





Again the flowers were colored with copics (pink, light violet and yellow) after it was die cut and then wet so it could be molded.

The new stamp sets are pictured here:
