stampin' in time...

Good morning all!  I am thrilled this morning that I found time to play along with the Stamping in Time with Betty challenge.  This weeks challenge is "NEW to you".  Almost everything on my card is new.  I used my verse from the new Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 7, and I have to tell you I am so glad that Kelley made my verse to fit a circle.  I layered that onto the new Our Daily Bread Designs elegant ovals Spellbinders die and some Julianne specialty paper.

Our Daily Bread Designs 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop...

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs Third Anniversary new release blog hop!  If you arrived here from Angie's blog then you are in the right place.  If you just popped in from someplace else you really want to head over to the ODBD blog and start the hop at the beginning.

The hop will run through 8:00pm on March 18th and the winners will be announced on Saturday along with the Shining the Light winners and challenge.  For this special event there will be SIX PRIZES of one free set and ONE GRAND PRIZE of the Bread Basket bundle (all three anniversary sets).  All you need to do is:

  • leave comments for each designer on their blog
  • return to the ODBD blog and leave a comment letting us know that you completed the hop and if you had any trouble post on any of the blogs
  • answer the question on the ODBD blog
Now I have to say that the Anniversary Blog hop is one of my favorites each year.  Why?  Because each year every design team member gets to pick a favorite verse to have made into a stamp.  My choice this year is:
You will keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on You,
because he trusts in You.
Isaiah 26:3
I really enjoyed using my verse with the new Fancy Labels set which was designed to work with Spellbinders Nestibilities Labels Seventeen and my fabulous Grand Caliber. 
Before I send you on your way I have to tell you about one more exciting way you can win during our Anniversary Celebration.  Our Second Customer Favorites Contest!!!

We will be taking submissions, of your favorite verses to use on a card, for the rest of the month.  There is a special post on the Our Daily Bread Designs blog that explains it all and a link in the side bar.  If your verse is selected you will receive the set free and you will be invited to be a guest designer for the release of these new stamps.  Please see THIS post for all the details!

Now hop on over and check out what loveliness Sabrina has for you.

What I used:
SU very vanilla, chocolate chip card stock
K&Company Julianne designer paper
Versafine vintage sepia, Ranger antique linen, SU chocolate chip ink pads

clear embossing powder, sponge, brown brads, brown grosgrain ribbon, eyelet edge punch

try a new technique...

I had a bit of playtime this morning, before work, to reward myself for getting a mountain of laundry folded.  I did a quick cruise through some of my favorite challenges and use a couple on this card. Todays SplitCoastStampers Try a New Technique challenge was to create a trellis, which worked really nicely with this weeks CPS sketch challenge.  I used some lovely new Prima Sweet Fairy designer paper and paired it with Our Daily Bread Designs Daffodil Corner stamp and ODBD's very own  Elegant Ovals Spellbinders dies.
What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Daffodil Corner
SU whisper white, daffodil delight card stock

For my card I used the set He Will Rise.  I so love the three crosses image.  Instead of coloring the image I just did some soft sponging then cut the stamped image out using my Grand Caliber and the large classic circle and the large scalloped circles. (Have I told you lately how much I love my Grand Caliber?)  I layered several different patterns of the Basic Grey designer paper Marjolaine then added some ribbon and a big old Prima flower that I have had in my stash forever and never used.

Now hop on over to visit the fabulous Connie's blog and check out what loveliness she has for you!

I also did my card for two challenges;  the Papertake Weekly challenge which is "anything goes" with the option add on of something old and for the Sweet Sunday sketch challenge.

What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs He will Rise
SU whisper white, basic black, kiwi kiss card stock
Basic Grey Marjolaine designer paper
Versafine black, SU crumb cake and soft sky ink pads
