I stamped the sundae from Ice Cream, colored with Copics, then went over the glass with Glossy Accents. The cherry and whipped cream are Liquid Pearls. I used a silver gel pen for the spoon.

I used the ‘out of box’ or ‘out of bounds’ technique and ODBD Vintage Labels to display the sundae and sponged the edges with Distress Antique Linen.

Vintage Ephemera, the paper collection, gave my card that old fashioned ice cream shoppe feel. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa.

Other ODBD die used, Matting Circles.

Well, looky here! The old fashioned ice cream shoppe!

The card front features the greeting from Ice Cream Shoppe on ODBD Layered Lacey Squares, sponges with Colorbox Pink Pastel.

The background is scored to make it look like a little clapboard sided shop. I added ODBD Window Shutter and Awning, Welcoming Window, Layered Lacey Squares, and Fence dies.

Step inside and a yummy milkshake is waiting! Colored with Copics, and gel pen on the cheery, it’s hand cut and glued.

Taking a Look Back at July

Our Daily Bread designs

Blessed Assurance…. Fanny Crosby wrote so many beautiful hymns, thousands of them! If you’ve never read or watched her life story, you need to. Here is a testimony of how she kept the troops inspired to press on!

“During the re­cent war in the Trans­vaal,” said a gen­tle­man at my meet­ing in Ex­e­ter Hall, Lon­don, in 1900, “when the sol­diers go­ing to the front were pass­ing ano­ther bo­dy of sol­diers whom they re­cog­nized, their greet­ings used to be, ‘Four-nine-four, boys; four-nine-four;’ and the sa­lute would in­var­i­a­bly be an­swered with ‘Six fur­ther on, boys; six fur­ther on.’ The sig­nif­i­cance of this was that, in ‘Sac­red Songs and So­los,’ a num­ber of co­pies of the small edi­tion of which had been sent to the front, num­ber 494 was ‘God be with you un­til we meet again
;’ and six fur­ther on than 494, or num­ber 500, was ‘Bless­ed As­sur­ance, Je­sus is mine.’”

Angels Descending, is part of the second verse.

We’re taking a look back at the July release from Our Daily Bread designs. For my sample today, I used Fragrance, You Are My Angel, Angels Descending, and Flower Box Fillers.

I started by stamping the angel wings from Angels Descending in Colorbox French Blue, then stamped the roses from Fragrance in Colorbox Pink Pastel for my base. I love how this set makes a beautiful background!

Here is a close-up with the wings softly peeking through. 

Our Daily Bread designs

I stamped the verse from the hymn in Ranger Jet Black on Ornate Hearts and added the Flower Box Fillers. I also tucked one of the Beautiful Borders under the heart.

I also finished the inside

Our Daily Bread designs Angels Descending verse and You Are My Angel wings.

Julie, my sister breadstick, inspired me when she made a little flower pot out of the flowerbox by shortening when die cutting, so I added one to the handmade envelope.

Bless├Ęd assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
chorus
(This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.)

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Thanks for stopping by!

My first card features the fun Flower Box Fillers, Window Shutters and Awning, Welcoming Window dies, and the very versatile Home Sweet Home.

I started by using one of the Fun and Fancy Folds Center Step and covered it with a piece from the Blushing Rose Collection.

Our Daily Bread designs

Lots of flowers in my garden and flower box, sponged with ink while still in the die and white gel pen, and the Grass Border tucked in behind.

I put tabs on each end of the awning and tucked them behind the window to attach it. I used the same die to make the shade out of more Blushing Rose.

The little cute garden sign is the smallest die from Layered Lacey Squares.

Our Daily Bread designs

Soooo many possibilities with these dies!!!

Our Daily Bread designs

I wanted to try and create a background with these beautiful roses from Fragrance, much like the wild roses that are blooming around here right now!

How many of you have Pearl Ex and never use it? ME… raising my hand here!!

That’s what I did… and I love the outcome! I stamped with VersaMark embossing ink, then brushed on the PE. The embossing ink is sticky so the PE sticks to the image then you just take a soft cloth, like a Swiffer that will pick up the excess powder without wiping the image away, and lightly wipe your piece. I also used Flourished Star Pattern die.

I just couldn’t capture the shimmer with my camera!

Our Daily Bread designs

For the beautiful roses, using my MISTI, I stamped the image in Memento Gray Flannel so I could see the image to color it but not be dark enough to show through after. After coloring with Copics and again using the MISTI, I over-stamped with Victorian Velvet which made the image POP! The image is hand cut.

I wanted to ‘frame’ the sentiment but not hide the background, so I made a doily frame with the Doily die, Circle Ornaments, Matting Circles, and tucked one of the Beautiful Borders in there too.

Before attaching the roses to the card, I gave them several spritzes with Glimmer Mist.

The colored layer is a piece of white cardstock with the edges colored with E04 to match the flowers, then taped to my folded A2 base.

Taking a Look Back at June… ODBD

 

Our Daily Bread designs

A cheery Hello and welcome to the post where we review the June release from Our Daily Bread designs!

Our Daily Bread designs

Here is what I used for my samples today

I wanted my first sample to be a masculine one. I started with kraft and the Sunburst Background die. It makes an awesome background for so many different looks!

Our Daily Bread designs

I stamped the verse from Good Man and cut it with Vintage Flourish Pattern. I used the Pennant set to cut the Vintage Ephemera paper, the cut freehand the mats. After matting each pennant, I cut them in half to elongate them.

Our Daily Bread designs

And the inside

Just for fun I did another one because these happy sunshines are just too cute!!

Our Daily Bread designs

Same background die, Sunburst Background, but look at the difference when the paper is stamped! This is Chalkboard Vine Background stamped in Adirondack Shell Pink.  I stamped the quote twice so I could cut out the two words and highlight them with one of the same Copics used to color the sun. I used my MISTI to stamp the quote in yellow and black. The little sunburst from the die is just behind the quote along with the smallest die from Vintage Flourish Pattern (which is cut in half to elongate). Behind that is one of the Beautiful Borders.

I stamped the sun, from Sunshine Blessings, twice so I could have the ‘sun face’ to pop up, colored with Copics and hand cut.

I have to share something my 9 year old granddaughter made. She wanted to make a card and as I was busy, I told her she could go up to the “stamp room” and make something. I had no idea what she had done until later when I went up after she had gone!

Our Daily Bread designs

LOL….she just picked cardstock scraps out of my trash.
I thought her sun was so cute, and outlined in silver pen!
Clever idea!

Our Daily Bread designs

Awwww…. how sweet is that!
