Heartfelt Thanks




Hi Friends! 

I am having so much fun with the Our Daily Bread Designs September 2016 Release stamps!  

Today I wanted to share another card that I designed with the ODBD Seasons Change and ODBD A-Maize-ing stamp sets along with the coordinating ODBD Wheelbarrow Die (I just love how intricate this die cuts the image- even the spokes!) and several other ODBD layering dies. 


If you have not already had a chance to visit the above galleries yet, I hope you will do so as well as stop by the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the ODBD Flourished Star Pattern Die, mount onto a piece of chocolate cardstock, trim and mount onto the white card base.

Die cut and emboss a piece of chocolate cardstock with the ODBD Lavish Layers Die and mount onto the card front, layer with the soft pink gingham sheet of the ODBD Shabby Rose Collection 6x6 Paper (die cut and embossed with the ODBD Rectangles Dies- save the scrap piece of the final step).

Die cut and emboss a piece of white cardstock with the ODBD Ornate Hearts Dies and mount onto the card front.

Ink the wheelbarrow image from the ODBD Seasons Change stamp set using archival black ink, stamp onto white cardstock and color the image using a brown watercolor pencil (adding shadows without water for contrast).

Use the ODBD Wheelbarrow Die to cut out the image and mount the wheelbarrow image onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Stamp the sentiment from the ODBD A-Maize-ing stamp set with black archival ink onto white cardstock, die cut and emboss with the ODBD Layered Lacey Oval Dies.
Die cut and emboss a piece of chocolate cardstock with the ODBD Ornate Ovals Dies, mount the sentiment die cut in the center and add to the card front with dimensional foam.

Die cut and emboss the scrap piece of ODBD Shabby Rose Collection 6x6 Paper (from the step above) with the ODBD Small Bow Dies, create the bow and adhere to the card front to finish off the card.

1 Thess 5:18a "In Everything Give Thanks" is a reminder that we, as Christians, should be thankful at all times- sometimes difficult to do during stressful or difficult situations (life can be messy:-)).  
But if we focus on Christ, remember what He has done for us, remember that we are "strangers in this land" and that our eternal home will be with Christ, it is easier to "give thanks" in all things! With each passing day we are closer to His return- what a wonderful Savior and we truly do have so much to be thankful for!!

I am blessed by each of you when you take the to visit my blog and I do read all of the comments- you are such an encouragement to me! Hugs and I hope you have a fabulous weekend, my friends!

Hi Julie - I selfishly seldom comment but I love all your artwork. The one-color treatment on this wheelbarrow filled with usually colorful items is perfection with each element clearly and beautifully defined. And the background and bow are perfect! You are so talented.

This is beautiful, Julie! I love how your intricate frames suit perfectly the vintage/sepia feel you have given your gorgeous wheelbarrow image and your sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

Love your combination of rustic image with all those intricate borders and die cut details Julie. The soft vintage colour combination really adds to the atmosphere as well.Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
