I would like to see help with determining with the spellbinder dies and all dies that you use, how you determine if you need shims or not. i was helping my friend with the snowflake I got and the poinsetta die she just got to determine the thickness you need to cut it out. She has the electric one(forgot brand)i have a big shot. She said she can't always get the crispness of the dies or to get them embossed. We were at a show this fall that showed some tricks, which have helped, but if you could share any hints on getting best results on cutting with the dies.

The Hope You Can Cling To winners from yesterday's blog hop are........LaDawn, Jan Marie, and Traci S.! Congrats, ladies!!! You each win a $20 ODBD Gift Certificate...yay!!
LaDawn said...

Great hop. So many ideas for the use of the sets. I have many new creations in my head now. I could not post a comment on Sue's card. She did a great job.

Jan Marie said...

Beautiful work, Breadsticks. . .not a moldy one in the basket! Every stop was sweet and fresh! Thanks so much. May the Lord bless and keep you!

Hi~ This was such a beautiful and meaningful hop. I love this set. There are so many elements--it could make a variety of special cards with one set. I did visit every person on the list, and I did leave a comment.
I could feel the love that each person put into their project. It was an extraordinary hop in that way...I think it was a love-filled hop.
I know that "All things are possible through God." And, I just want to remind those being touched by this disease that it includes ending cancer...all cancer! God is great!

He IS Able!

Congrats, ladies! Please send an email to to get your coupon code. Happy Shopping!!


In case you are not familiar with our Flashback Friday Favorites posts, this is when we turn back the clock a bit and revisit the previously released stamp sets by Our Daily Bread designs, which I call "Oldies but Goodies"! Even the sets that are three plus years old are still just as beautiful, powerful, and versatile! This week's Flashback is on the "Sympathy Bundle"! Our Daily Bread designs offers a wide variety of "Bundles", which are stamp sets grouped together by theme, at a discounted price for you (10% off of the regular price.)

Throughout the circle of life, unfortunately, there is a frequent need of sympathy cards to uplift those who are grieving. These three sets, "With Deepest Sympathy", "With Heartfelt Sympathy", and "Praying for You", are just the tools you need to help you witness to others about God's love and comforting arms during these trials.

The first set, "With Deepest Sympathy" includes a peaceful and serene lake image, two comforting scripture verses, and a basic sympathy sentiment. I have found that this set not only makes the most beautiful sympathy cards, but is perfect for cards and gifts for the man in your life or nature lovers, due to the gorgeous scene.

Next up is "With Heartfelt Sympathy", which includes two images, two sentiments, and two more powerful scripture verses. Once again, due to the rustic images, many have used this set for other occasions as well. One thing I absolutely LOVE about Our Daily Bread designs' stamp line is the ability to mix and match, for any paper-crafting need you may have!

The third set I would like to share today is "Praying For You", a companion set, if you will, to the two sympathy sets above. Once again, mixing and matching among the sets is a perfect way to create just the right card that you had in mind.

Please enjoy the samples below, which show how versatile these sets can be. The variety of styles, designs, and techniques just waiting to be discovered are endless!

Too see more lovely samples with these sets or any stamp set by Our Daily Bread designs, please visit the ODBD Card Gallery, where you can look up any set alphabetically and find loads of inspirational samples!

Thanks for stopping by today! Stay tuned tomorrow for a brand new Shining the Light Challenge! Have a very blessed weekend!
