ODBD September 2016 New Release and Blog Hop!



Hi Friends!

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs September 2016 Release!! Summer is coming to a close here in the Northeastern United States and this release is perfect for crisp Autumn days as well as year-round cards!

I know that you will not want to miss the inspiration from the rest of the ODBD Breadbaskets and we would love to have you hop along with us- see more details below...



I absolutely love this Indian Corn image in the ODBD A-Maize-ing stamp set and the coordinating ODBD Indian Corn Die matches it perfectly!


**Creative Tip ** I used the ODBD Pierced Square Dies (stacked two together) to cut out the frame to make the photo corners.  

I loved using watercolor pencils to watercolor both images on the cards and the ODBD coordinating dies were so easy to match up to the images- in fact, the ODBD Wheelbarrow Die even cut the spokes on the wheel perfectly!

I hope I have inspired you today and that you will take the time to visit the rest of my ODBD Breadbasket Design Team Sisters to check out their gorgeous creations:

Melissa * Julie (you are here)  *
 Sandee * Cathy * Dawn * Lori * Robin * Lisa 
Sabrina * Diana * Angie * Chris * Grace

Prize Information: 
Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 Gift Code to the ODBD Website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until September 2, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on September 3, 2016 so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Thanks again for stopping by- hugs and have a blessed week, my friends!

The cool background makes the wheelbarrow pop. Love the coloring, I think I don't have the patience.

Gorgeous bountiful harvest!!! LOVE your card.

I think both of your cards are amazing. My favorite is the second card. It is elegant, yet simple and I can see it used for Thanksgiving, Birthday, Inspiration or, really almost any event or need. I love how everything came together in this card. WOW!

Pamela Haskin said...

Such beautiful cards! I especially like the deep, rich colors you achieved on your second card.

I like to do Thanksgiving cards, and both of these stamp/die sets would be great for that. You've shown them off well in your cards - and I appreciate your photo corner tip, too!

Love your roasted looking Indian corn, so beautiful with the purple and the paper is perfect with it Julie!!! Gorgeous! I love your wheelbarrow card too! Love the reddish fall asters, I have some of those in a wine barrow in my yard!!

Both of your cards are so beautifully done. I can't pick a favorite. I love the nicely colored Indian corn, but the fall wheelbarrow is equally pretty.

Both of your cards are gorgeous Julie!! I just love your rich coloring and the realistic look of your Indian corn. I can picture it hanging on my door!! Your second card is also colored to perfection but looks so elegant with your layering and the soft colors. Stunning cards my friend.

Both cards are quite attractive Julie! Love your use of the beautiful die cuts!

Cheryl Furman said...

What beautiful fall cards. Thanks for sharing!

RaeDeen Bittner said...

Oh, Julie! What beautiful cards you have created! The Indian corn brings back so many childhood memories. It was like 'Christmas in a husk'. Every ear was different and held a gift of multi colored kernels as you peeled back the husk. Your second card is equally gorgeous. Love the tip for the corners. Do you have a favorite kind of watercolor pencils that you use? What kind of paper did you stamp your wheel barrel on? I am giving Thanks today for you...for your faith, your gifts, and for who you are! You are a blessing!

Wonderful cards. Your coloring is fabulous. I really like how your image in the second card pops against the soft green background. Just lovely. You've given me a few ideas. Thanks.

Janice M said...

Great cards! I love that Indian corn stamp a lot!

Denise Ward said...

Both are terrific! I especially the real-wood look used in each design. You have wood on the background paper in the first one and the wheelbarrow looks like wood in the second. They add texture and realism to the cards, and the overall design of each card is very nice. When you add the ODBD sentiments, you have cards that are sure to bless their recipients. :)

Cathymac said...

Love the rich, warm colors on your beautifully colored Indian corn card and the wheelbarrow full of fall's bounty is just gorgeous! Both cards are stunning, Julie!

Sherry said...

Helen Gullett said...

Dawn said...
