You are My Sunshine


Hello Everyone!  It's the first of the month and that means it's time for a brand new release by Our Daily Bread Designs!!  Whether it's Autumn or Christmas themes, we've got you covered this month - just in time to get your holiday projects underway!

Of course it wouldn't be a release without PRIZES and we have three to give away this month!  All the deets are below!

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 October 2, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. USA EDT to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on October 3rd so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

I've created my card base using the brand new Rounded Rectangles Dies - I think these are awesome and such a great size to create card bases, but with a variety of sizes these will be super useful!  I've die cut a piece of cream card while it was folded and then placed aside.  I've used the exact same size to cut a piece of So Saffron card and topped with paper from the Follow the Son Paper Pad cut with Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles Dies.  Next I've used the Stitched Leaves Dies and cut many leaves using the solid coloured papers from the Follow the Son Paper Pad and arranged them as shown - gluing them into place.  I've then cut some deep yellow paper from Follow the Son using Stitched Oval Dies and attached as shown and then adhered some hessian (burlap) ribbon around all the layers.  I've then stamped the sentiment from Be a Sunflower in black ink directly onto the oval.  Stamp the image from Be A Sunflower in Memento Rich Cocoa onto X-press It Blending Card and colour with Copics.  Now - this Sunflower image does have a matching DIE; Sunflower Die; but mine is still finding it's way across the Pacific Ocean, so I've fussy cut mine to get the same look.........the die will be WAY quicker and easier!  I've popped this up on foam tape to the side and balanced with an extra leave on the other.  To finish I've added a couple of enamel dots.

Paper - Followe the Son Paper Collection, So Saffron, Cream, X-press It Blending Card
