Flower Soft Falling Leaves & Butterflies and Blessings

I have two cards for your today! Both feature Our Daily Bread designs new sets! I've named the first card "Flower Soft Falling Leaves." This design also features Flower Soft's new Autumn color!

I began this design with Bazzill's Nutmeg textured paper...one of my favorite browns--it matches the Versafine Sepia ink just perfectly! More texture was achieved with the ScorBug, making dashed lines across the SU Sunshine Yellow paper, giving a basket woven feel. Look carefully, as it is a bit difficult to see the texture in this picture--it's great IRL!

I used Spellbinder's dies from ODBD to cut the leaves, then sprinkled them with the Autumn Flower Soft.

An American Crafts Elements brown brad, along with the Our Daily Bread designs "Friendship" sentiment, finish this quick and colorful design!
Flower Soft is giving away a Autumn FS package on their blog...check it out here.

Today is release day over at Our Daily Bread designs! There are three beautiful new sets available for purchase..."Get Well," "Friendship," and the set I used today, "Thinking of You." All three feature beautiful Bible Verses and much used sentiments.

I began with some Bazzill textured paper for my design. I ran one layer through my CuttleBug, using the Textiles folder. Some chunky clear glitter from Stampin' Up adds interest to the edges of the embossed panel.

I used the Stampin' Up Sizzix Bigz Beautiful Butterflies to die cut a butterfly from another "Textile" embossed piece of cardstock, dressing it up with a Michael's brad, May Art ribbon, and more chunky glitter.

My sentiment and image from the ODBD set was stamped onto PaperTrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock with Versafine Sepia ink, then embossed with Stampin' Up Clear Fine Detail Embossing powder. After embossing, I used a Copic marker for a bit of lavendar, then die cut the panel with a Spellbinder's Oval die. A bit more glitter added pretty sparkle to the image/sentiment panel.

Quick and easy, with a bit of embossing and glimmer! I love the fact that whichever ODBD set I pull out, I am able to create a pretty design around a sentiment or Bible Verse. A bit of dressing up with Primas or diecuts, and you have a beautiful design suitable for so many occasions!

Please check back for our big release on September 3rd! We will be having a blog hop with designs for the three new sets, and a challenge, "Three for Thee," which will include prizes that Kelley at ODBD has so generously provided!

Please visit these Bread Sticks for fabulous ideas using the three sets:

Have a great week, and thanks so much for stopping by!
