ODBD January 2017 New Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Happy New Year 2017! May God bless you and your family abundantly. And may God give you wisdom and guide you when you making plans through the years. He is our hope and He holds the future, that He has planned for you! Trust in Him!

And… Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs January New Release Blog Hop! And there is a giveaway for your to enter at the end of the post. Visit Our Daily Bread Design Blog to see the full details on the new stamps, custom die sets and paper collections.

Today I am sharing 2 projects. First, a Bible Journaling Page with Find Refuge, one of the new Bible Journaling stamps.

I added the acrylic paints on my page with old credit card. Acrylic paints dry quickly, but to speed up the drying process, I used my craft heater. And when the paints dried well, I stamped the Bible Journaling stamp with archival ink. Then I highlight the Bible verses and wrote my journal on the top and bottom space with archival ink pen.

My second project is a layered birthday card with the one of the new stamp sets, Seeds of Today. This stamp set is gorgeous!

I created the watercolored panel with my watercolor paints, dried it with craft heater, then I stamped the flower image with archival ink and die cut it with the Rectangle Dies.

I use the Rectangle Dies and Double Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the panels for the layers using the new paper collections: Whimsical Wildflowers Collections and Plum Pizzazz Paper Pad.

For the sentiment, I die cut matching papers from the Plum Pizzazz Paper Pad with Pennant Flags Dies and Double Stitched Pennant Flags Dies.

I used permanent adhesive to add my layers of panels on the card base and use 3D foam to add the pennant sentiment. I finished my card with yellow wrinkle ribbon and purple stickles.

Here are the products I used on my projects today:
