Our Daily Bread Designs October Release Hop

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs October Release Blog Hop! This month’s hop is all about the upcoming holidays: Christmas and Thanksgiving! If you've arrived here from Dawn's blog, your hopping along brilliantly.  If not, be sure to check the ODBD Blog for the start.

Here are the basics of the Hop: The hop will run from 8:00am Oct. 1 to 8:00pm EST Oct. 2, and the winners will be announced Oct 3. For an opportunity to win a set of your choice (there are 6 of these prizes) hop to each link, leave a comment, return to the ODBD blog and tell us you completed the hop by answering the question on the ODBD blog.   Be sure to Check the ODBD Blog on Oct. 3 to see if YOU are one of the winners!

Now for my project.



I'm showcasing images from the new set Perfect Gift.  I stamped the tree image with Versamark onto kraft cardstock and embossed it with White embossing Powder.  I colored the bulbs with my Quickie Glue Pen and added Latte Opaque Micro Fine Glitter to them.  I also trimmed the kraft panel with a Gold Leafing Pen by Kryon.


I finished off the inside with one of the sentiments from the Perfect Gift set by framing it with one of the  Fancy Framed Tags One die by Spellbinders and an EK Success Border punch.  I added some dots to both frames using Glass Effect Gel (Viva Decor) and the afore mentioned Latte glitter.



That's it for my project.  You have one more stop and that's the wonderful Rosemary's blog.
