ODBDSLC277 Happy Summer Days!

Hi Friends! 

Today we are featuring a "reminder" post for the Our Daily Bread Designs “Shining the Light” ODBDSLC277 Sketch Challenge!

You have until September 4th to join us for a chance to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light award or to win a $15 ODBD gift certificate (one random participant will be chosen).  To be spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award, you must use ODBD stamps (or stamps from our sister companies: North Coast Creations or Artistic Outpost). 

For this sketch challenge reminder post, I decided to create a card with a “sneak peek” of some of the ODBD mid-month August Release stamps and dies that will be available tomorrow- Thanks a Melon and Watermelon Dies.   I know that you will love all of the fun images and dies in this new release that will allow you to create all sorts of great cards- stop back tomorrow for all of the details!

I am also incorporating the Inkspirational #115 "Patterned Paper" Challenge into the design- the checkerboard panel is from the ODBD Christmas 2013 6x6 Paper Collection and I created my own "patterned paper" with the Thanks A Melon stamps for the central focal circle :-)

To create this card:

Die cut a piece of white cardstock with the ODBD Flourished Star Pattern Die, mount onto a piece of black cardstock and trim close to the die cut edge.

Die cut a piece of the Christmas 2013 6x6 Paper Collection with the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and mount onto the background panel.

Ink the Thanks A Melon watermelon images with an archival black ink and repeatedly stamp onto a piece of white cardstock to create your own “designer paper”.

Color the images with water-based markers, add a bit of glitter with a clear glitter pen and white highlights with a white paint pen, use the ODBD Double Stitched Circle Dies to cut out the main panel circle and the ODBD Watermelon Dies to cut two watermelon slices.

Die cut a piece of white cardstock with the ODBD Doily Die, “age” the doily as well as the die cut focal image circle (by sponging a bit of antique linen distress ink over the panels) and mount the die cut circle focal image onto the doily die cut with dimensional foam.

Die cut a piece of melon cardstock with the ODBD Pierced Square Dies, mount onto a piece of black cardstock, trim close to the edge of the die cut and mount onto the card front.

Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the ODBD Beautiful Borders Dies, “age” with the antique linen distress ink, add to the card front and adhere the 5/8” Black Satin Triple Ribbon Bow (wrapping the ribbon ends behind the panel).

Stamp the sentiment from Thanks A Melon onto white cardstock with black archival ink, die cut and emboss with the ODBD Layered Lacey Square Dies, “age” with the antique linen distress ink and mount onto to the card front with dimensional foam.

Add the two die cut watermelon pieces to finish off the card.
I hope you will find the time to check out my Design Team Sisters’ fabulous projects:

Fabulous mix of colours. I adore the bright pink with the check green paper, and that glossy ribbons gives the whole card such a glamorous look. Thanks for joining Ink
