ODBDSLC278 Dots and Dashes
Welcome to the new Our Daily Bread Designs ODBDSLC278 “Dots and Dashes” Shining the Light Challenge !
We want to see your dots and dashes (for ex: pierced dies, stitched dies, polka dot paper, etc.) and are looking forward to seeing what you create!
You have until October 2nd 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).
I decided to create a card combining the new ODBD September 2016 Release stamp sets, A-Maize-ing and Seasons Change along with the coordinating ODBD Indian Corn Die.
I also used the ODBD Rectangles Dies and the background paper is from the ODBD Americana Quilt Collection 6x6 Paper Pad.
To create this card:
Die cut a piece of berry cardstock with the ODBD Flourished Star Pattern Die, mount onto a piece of white cardstock, trim close to the die cut edge and mount this onto the berry card base.
Die cut a piece of the ODBD Americana Quilt Collection 6x6with the ODBD Rectangles Dies, mount onto a piece of white cardstock die cut with the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and layer this panel onto the card front.
Wrap a piece of berry satin ribbon over the entire card front (wrapping the ribbon ends behind the card front) and mount the entire card front onto the white card base.
Ink the A-Maize-ing Indian Corn image with archival black ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock.
Color the image with watercolor pencils and die cut with the ODBD
Using the eyelet frame and main heart dies from the ODBD Ornate Hearts Dies, layer onto your platform and die cut both from white cardstock. Adhere the heart die cuts directly to the card front.
Add the looped gold cord and mount the colored Indian Corn image with dimensional foam.
Ink the sentiment from Seasons Changewith archival black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and die cut with the ODBD Filigree Frames
Add the sentiment with dimensional foam to the card front to finish off the card.
If you have not already had a chance to visit my Design Team Sisters’ sites yet, I hope you will find the time to do so! Fabulous inspiration for sure!
Have fun with this challenge and we are looking forward to seeing your artwork in the ODBDSLC278 “Dots and Dashes” Shining the Light gallery!
