ODBD For the Love of Friendship


Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of Friendship! 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 posts 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, February 13th, at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Friendship!  
I have the honor of starting this week's hop and I chose to use the set Friendship.  I love the dragonfly with the flourishes.  And the sentiments and verses in the set are perfect to provide just the right amount of encouragement or gratitude.



I started by inking some white cardstock with Iced Spruce and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink (Ranger).   I then stamped the dragonfly flourish on it with Versamark and embossed it with White ep.  I also stamped the image with Red Brick (VersaMagic) onto a scrap and cut the red dragonfly out to adhere over the flourish.

The background was created by stamping "Thank you for being my friend" repeatedly over Kraft cs with Versamark and again, embossing with White ep.





I stamped the verse on a Kraft banner with Smokey Gray (Versafine), and added a few flowers and flourishes.  That about sums up all the stamping.  I'll include a supply list at the bottom.

Next up on the hop is the smart, sweet and talented, Lisa.



Thanks so much for visiting!!
Happy Stamping!
