Our Daily Bread Designs For the Love of Background Stamps!

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love of Blog Hop! This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of ODBD Backgrounds! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, go to the ODBD Blog for the full link list. One of the posts is a hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all of the creations, plus leave a little love. You have until March 28th at 6 p.m.  The winner will be announced March 29th. So, get hopping and enjoy all of the inspiration using Our Daily Bread Designs Background Stamps!




I'm using "Crocheted Background" in my design today:








I stamped the crocheted background stamp onto blush colored cardstock using a white craft ink pad, then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. After embossing, I sponged a darker blush colored ink over the surface, attempting to create a subtle ombre effect. 


A beautiful bloom from my stash, tiny punched butterflies, and Bible verse from ODBD's "Porch" stamp set finishes my simple design.


If you've come here from Sandee's blog, you're hopping along just fine! Since I'm the last person in the hop, I'm sending you on to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog.


Thanks so much for hopping with us today, and be sure to join us Saturday for Our Daily Bread Designs Fourth Anniversary hop!

I wish my crocheting looked this nice! Your card is stunning -- and it does sorta give me an idea for a lacy top with a peach to pinky silk lining! but back to your card -- I also love the clean lines on the sentiment - perfect for the lacey BG.

Hi Deb~

I had no idea this background would look so beautiful! This card is wonderful. I love the white on this paper. It looks as if it is expensive dp the way you embossed it and then went over it. I have no idea what ombre means. Would you explain the term please if you have time? I love the butterfly and the sentiment.

He IS Able!
