ODBD Alumni Blog Hop....CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Howdy friends!

It's time again for a new Our Daily Bread Designs bi-monthly For the Love of Blog Hop. This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop with the ODBD Christmas Sets! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, check the ODBD blog for full list of links.  One of the post is a hop 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 the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, July 18th at 6 PM.   Enjoy all the awesome inspiration using ODBD Christmas Sets!

If you came here from the KATHY'S BLOG then you are right on track, if not... please stop by the ODBD Blog to get started.



I chose the beautiful Christmas Rose Set. The Design Paper in the background is from the BoBunny Rejoice Collection. I matched it up with some Ribbon, Button, Scrapper's Floss, a Doily and some Silver Pearls. At last I added the Dazzling Diamond Glitter....voila!!!

My second card was inked with the beautiful Christmas Door Set. Pretty simple layout...I embossed the background and colored the image. Next I added the Gold RibbonButton, some Gold Twine and bedazzled the image with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter.


  

Because I had so much fun I decided to create another Christmas card with the Warm Wishes Set.



The image was embossed with Silver EP and I displayed in a cut out Sizzix Top Note Die. The DP in the background is again from the BoBunny Rejoice Collection. I finished the card off with some Ribbon, Button, Scrapper's Floss and some Silver Pearls.

Hope you enjoyed my cards??? Now it's time to hop on over to TOSHA'S BLOG....have fun hopping and enjoy your day!

These cards are beautiful Silke. My favorite is the Warm Wishes set. I love the background paper. It reminds me of wallpaper, and the frame around the stamp makes it appear as though you are looking out the window at a frosty scene from a warm and cozy house.
