Today, ODBD releases new stamps, die sets, paper collections. And… they is giving away 3 gift cards to the store. Keep reading… 🙂 and visit ODBD November New Release Blog Post to read more about the new release and how you can save money on the Bundles and get free shipping!

For this new release, I created 2 cards. On my first card, I use the Jesus Loves You Stamp/Die Duos, Snow Crystals dies, Snowflake Season Collection Paper PadFun & Fancy Folds – Center Step Card, Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, and Rectangles Dies:


Using my WRMK Evolution Advanced, I die-cut and embossed the pieces. For the word Jesus and the Star, I die-cut them 5 times and stacked them together with glue pen to create thicker chipboard. Sentiment I stamped with Versafine Onyx Black on one of the beautiful Snowflake Season Collection papers. I finished the card with some gold sequins.


The ODBD dies are not online for die-cutting, but also for embossing and stenciling. Check out the details on the die-cuts after embossing:



On my second card, I use the new Snowflake Season Collection Paper Pad, Merry & Bright clear stamp,  Snow Crystals Dies, Double Stitched Rectangles Dies, and Rectangles Dies:


I diecut a black cardstock with the double stitched rectangles and rectangles dies to create the chalkboard window. Then I cut out a piece of black cardstock for the chalkboard background where also I stamped and heat-embossed the light strings from Merry & Bright clear stamp set using Ranger White embossing powder. After that, I colored the light bulbs with my Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.


Aftercoloring, I added some White Archival ink on the panel with sponge to create the chalkboard look. Then I finished the card with some clear gems.

Here are the new stamps, die sets and paper collection that I used on my cards today:

    Congratulations on making the ODBD Design Team! I am looking forward to seeing your creations. These two cards are so very pretty. I really love the red and white one with all your special details. I like how you embossed, in white, the string of Christmas lights on the second card.
