I finally get to tell you...

I am so super excited. I finally get to tell you all what I have been bursting to tell you since July. I am going to be the next guest designer for...

Yes!!! Our Daily Bread designs! I have loved Kelley's designs since she first started the company and I am so happy to be able to show you , starting tomorrow her newest designs. Below are a couple of the cards that I have made using Our Daily Bread design stamps.
This card uses "Keep My Lamp Burning" which is my favorite ODBD stamp set. Family trips to Nova Scotia and Maine as a kid have left me with a love of lighthouses. Combine that with fantastic scripture verses and you can't lose. For this card I chose to use black and white combined with touches of curry,kraft, red and blue to give it a nautical feel. The moon behind the lighthouse was made by used sponges and several masks. First I masked the light house then punch a circle out of a post it note, setting the circle aside for later. I placed the post it note with the circle where I wanted the moon to be and sponged with crushed curry ink. I removed the post it note, still leaving the light house masked and placed the circle punched from the post it note over the moon. I then sponged in the night sky in bordering blue.
I chose my color combination for this card from the Basic Grey designer paper used in the back ground. Melon mambo, soft suede and old olive highlight this favorite verse from the Design Team Scripture Collection 2.
