ODBD June Release


Happy June, friends! The June release from Our Daily Bread Designs is perfectly focused on the themes of the month - Father's Day and Sunshne!


I am really enjoying the muted tones of the Vintage Ephemera Collection paper and it co-ordinates so perfectly with the gorgeous masculine stamps and dies released this month.


This verse is one of my husband's favourites, so I was thrilled to see it in this release. I have plans for the rest of the sentiments in the Good Man set of stamps.


These darling Workshop Tool dies are simply divine!! I have cut them out of neutral cardstock, which I coloured using a silver paint pen. I ran the hammer and screwdriver dies through using blue for the handles, cut the handle portion off and aged it using copic markers to colour. I tied the little tool bundle together with hemp twine.


This Sunshine themed collection is a very fun release from ODBD. While this background has the appearance of an embossing folder, it is a metal die template and it does beautiful work cutting, piercing and embossing all at the same time.


I used red, orange and yellow glitter spray on a paintbrush to create the splatter pattern on the background. Once I loaded the paintbrush with glitter spray, I tapped the brush on my finger so the spray pattern would have a larger drip pattern.


I sponged the sentiment while in a basic rectangle die template to  really draw attention to this lovely sentiment. I've used an adhesive rhinestone to embellish this wee sun. So fun!!

The blue and brown on your first card is so very nice. I like the tools bundled next to the sentiment. The splatters on the second card give a nice splash of color to it.

love how you tied up the tools and laid them with the sentiment and love the splattered background with that die on the second!

The splattered colors on the sunshine card add just the right touch! What I admire about both cards is that they are subtle with the colors which allow the words to pop. Definitely cards I'd love to read. Kudos to you for your creativity.

What a fantastic masculine card with fabulous colors, lots of layers, and great little screws and twine embellishments. Wonderful! I also love the clean cut simplicity of the sunshine card with the splattered background and two tone inked sentiment. Great ways to add color!

Your cards are so beautiful Loretta!! Your first is so soft yet masculine with the rope and tools. The design is stunning. And your second is so bright and fun - I love the soft sponging of color on the quote, and the color spray in the background - adds so much interest! Beautiful samples!
Hugs,
Audrey
