Our Daily Bread Designs December blog hop...

Good morning all!  Can you believe that it is December all ready?  Well it is, so it is time for the Our Daily Bread blog hop!  If you arrived here from Kathy Jones's blog Inspired to Stamp, then you are in the right place.  If you just popped in from somewhere else you may want to head over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and start the hop at the beginning.  If you find any broken links along the way you can head there to get back on track.

The hop will run through December 2nd at 8:00pm EST.  So make sure you stop at each of the team members blogs and leave a comment, then comment (and answer the question) on the ODBD blog to be eligible for one of the four fabulous prizes that Kelly is providing.

I am super excited that Our Daily Bread Designs has been chosen to partner with Spellbinders.  I love ODBD and Spellbinders and to have them working together is going to be amazing.  Here is what Kelley has to say about it:  Our Daily Bread designs is so proud and pleased to be chosen by the Spellbinders company as a Preferred Stamp Partner.  Our partnership with Spellbinders will be a blessing to the stamping community as well, as we expand our line to include  perfect match sentiments, Scriptures and images to Spellbinders products.  We look forward to a long and blessed partnership with such a fine product as Spellbinders.  For my project I absolutely had to use ODBD Ornament set along with Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament die set.  I was inspired by the plaid BG Jovial designer paper as  I remember having a christmas dress as a little girl in a very similar plaid.  Using that as a base for my design I colored and sponged my embossed ornament, which I cut out with the Spellbinders die.  I stamped the poinsettia section of the ornament a couple of extra times, fussy cutting out the layers then reassembling it to give a bit of dimension to the flower. 
Now head on over to visit Randi Barrett's blog A New Creation and show her some love!

What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Ornaments
and matching Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament die
SU whisper white, real red, basic black
Basic Grey Jovial designer paper
Versafine black, Ranger antique linen distress ink pads
clear embossing powder
Copic markers
SU narrow black grosgrain ribbon, vintage brads
sponge
mustard distress stickles

Tracy J said...

Love that plaid paper and the vintage feel of this card. Just stunning!

Deb said...

Beautiful project. Love the 3D look of the poinsetta. My greatest Christmas Memory is the first Christmas without my Mother. I was only 6 years old. With Mom dying in November and Christmas being the next month, sure we were sad, but my Dad, being the father that he was, did all he could do to make sure his 4 girls were happy. We didn't have a lot of money, but that's not what Christmas is all about. All we wanted for Christmas was the doll house fully furnished, that we saw in the Sears Catalog and Only the doll house and we had to share it, but my sisters and I to this day (now 50 years ago) remember how special that Christmas was.

Marie said...

Hello Debi: Love your card! The 3deminsion effect of the poinsetta is beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Marie

Kathryn said...

This red plaid paper you used just says Merry Christmas! Love the poinsettia cut out and layered on top of the ornament for dimension...

Kris said...

A grand card! You captured a very festive feeling. My favorite Christmas memory is opening up gifts late Christmas Eve and then jumping into the car Christmas morning for the long trip to Grandma's house...loved her to pieces and those are precious memories.

Lynne M. said...

Beautiful design.
My favourite Christmas memory ...difficult question as many to choose from. One favourite, my Dad set up the card table in front of our beautifully decorated Christmas tree, and we had homemade meat pie followed by Christmas pudding or cookies (cookies were my choice as I don't like pudding). After, we would head off to church for the service where many Christmas hymns were sung -- my favourite, Silent Night.
