Happy New Year, everyone!!! Kelley and the whole team at Our Daily Bread designs would like to thank everyone for making 2010 a blessed and successful year! This ministry would not be possible without your love and support and encouragement.....THANK YOU!!
Before we jump into the new releases for January, we would like to announce a brand new ODBD venture which starts up on Tuesday, January 4th.......Our Daily Bread designs now has a Scrapbooking Team!!! Patter Cross and Chris Dickinson will be hosting monthly scrapbooking challenges, with cross-over support from the Design Team and Challenge Team. On the first Tuesday of each month, the monthly "Let Your Light Shine" scrapbook challenge will be revealed; each following Tuesday throughout the month, there will be new samples and tips for your inspiration. You will see that ODBD stamps and scrapbooking are a marriage made in heaven! There will be one lucky challenge participant each month who will win a $25.00 gift certificate! Stay tuned.....Patter will explain all of the fine details on Tuesday's post! We hope that you are as excited as we are!! We can't wait to see your ODBD layouts!!!
With each new month, I get really excited and cannot wait to reveal the New Releases here! When I first saw these, I nearly hyper-ventilated!!! If you are a butterfly fanatic like me (and our entire ODBD team), hang on because these will knock your socks off!!!! Plus, faith is so important in all areas of our lives....with faith, all things are possible!!
First up is a gorgeous set designed by Dina Kowal of DK Designs, called Faith. The scriptures and fonts are amazing, not to mention the Mother Teresa quote....can't have too many of those! Plus, the butterfly image is so creative and unique.....wait until you see the blog hop later this morning.....you will see how many different looks you can achieve with this one image!!!
Next up is the Butterfly Corner stamp, which has already turned some heads during the team's previews this week. There are endless possibilities with this stamp.....it can be used as a subtle background, as the main focal point, or as a beautiful mat for your scripture verses! If you love this corner stamp.....wait until you see what's next!
Also available this month is the Butterfly Single stamp which coordinates perfectly and is the same size as the butterfly image in the Butterfly Corner stamp! Not only can you use the two stamps together, but this single butterfly is a perfect embellishment for ANY card, layout, or altered item, (stamping on your walls), etc! But wait....there's more!
How about we take this single butterfly topic one step further?! There is also a custom cutting die which cuts out the Butterfly Single stamp perfectly! Hand-cutting butterfly antennas is not fun....I don't care who you are....it's not easy! This Butterfly Die gives a nice smooth edge around the outside of the antenna, so you don't have to worry about accidentally cutting them off. Another use for this Butterfly Die is to use it to cut out a shaped sentiment/scripture panel. To mat your sentiment panel, just trace the outside of the die and cut out by hand....this is very easy to do since the lines are simple.
This month, Kelley has added two more background stamps to the growing collection. This one is the Small Butterfly Background. Both butterfly background stamps measure 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and will completely cover any A2 size card.
The Large Butterfly Background sports a larger and slightly different butterfly design than the Small Butterfly Background. Both backgrounds may be used for many different techniques and projects.
To make the Large Butterfly Background stamp even more exciting, there is also a custom Butterfly Embossing Plate available which matches perfectly!!! You will find the "sandwich recipes" for using this embossing plate in different die-cut machines HERE.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Faith - Full of Grace Collection, with two beautiful quotes and the same gorgeous fonts as in the Faith set above! Isn't this set fantastic?! I know I will use these quotes a lot in the future for encouragement cards.
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post! I hope that you are inspired by these new gorgeous sets.....I sure am! I know that many, many people will be blessed and encouraged by these words and images.
Stay tuned for the "Leap of Faith"/New Release Blog Hop, which begins at 8 AM right here on the Our Daily Bread designs blog. Not only will you be inspired by the Design Team samples, but five lucky hoppers will win stamps of their choice! Don't miss it!!!
Once again, Our Daily Bread designs wishes you a very happy and blessed New Year!!!!
