ODBD July Release

Hello!  Welcome to the July Release by Our Daily Bread Designs!  If you like coloring and/or flowers, this release is for you! Also debuting are some beautiful and ornate dies.  I've combined the new set Sweet as Perfume and Vintage Borders.

Plumerias are one of my favorite flowers - and like many flowers, it was one I find in my mom's garden.  She has the yellow variety but have just added some pink ones to her collection.  So for my first card, I embossed in clear embossing powder on white card stock the spray of flowers several times, masking after each stamping.  I then sponged the colors in - again with masking to keep the colors separate.

The Bible verse was stamped and then die cut out with a die from the new Vintage Borders set.

On my second card, I used the same die set and made a thick frame by die-cutting it several times and gluing them together.  The purple layer is die cut from the Vintage Flourish Pattern die - it coordinates perfectly with this particular die set.

I stamped and colored the flowers with Copics.  After I fussy cut them, I popped them up on the frame.   I also brushed over the flowers with clear glitter Wink of Stella a couple of times.
