ODBD June Release Blog Hop


 It's time for the Our Daily Bread Designs June Release and I'm excited to share the projects I made using the Children's Prayers set.   If you've arrived here from Audrey's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog.

You have an opportunity to win one of 4 different prizes too.

Briefly, here are the details of the hop:
  • The hop will run June 1 from 8:00am to June 2, 8:00pm EDT.
  • Winners will be announced June 3
  • There will be a $15, $20, $30 and $40 Gift Card prize to be used for STAMPS in the ODBD Store. It must be redeemed within the month of June**  
  •  
  • To qualify to win, all you have to do is hop to each of the designers, leave a comment and return to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop, and let us know of any difficulties you had along the way.


Now, let me tell you about the projects I made.

 





First, I'd like to share my inspiration for today's projects.   The framed prayer on the left was made by my mother before I was born, making it over 45 years old.  The frame is quite beat up after making so many moves, but I won't ever replace it because it was made by her and she passed away when my daughter was 1 year old.  This hung by the crib for both of my children, and will be passed down too.  So, when I saw the "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" prayer in this set, I knew I wanted to make something inspired by this framed picture.  I made some ornate frames using Spellbinders dies, and included some Crosses from Spellbinders also.





Here's a close up of each framed sentiment in this set.  I used the following Spellbinders dies:  Resplendent Rectangles, Opulent Ovals and Cross Collection


I used Black Magic ColorCore Cardstock by Core'dinations for the frames and sanded them after diecutting.


I also inked up the cross, from Never Give Up, with Tea Dye (Ranger Distress Ink), stamped it off and then stamped it onto Vintage Cream Cardstock (PTI) for the background.  The sentiment panels are all ink distressed using Tea Dye Ranger Distress Ink.


 Here are the two stamp sets I used.


That's it from me today.  I'm the tail end of this hop, so head on over to the ODBD Blog next.

Thank you so much for dropping by!
Happy Stamping!

Really like this idea, now the prayers are easily used anywhere in the home, rather than just in a child's room. Great thinking!

Oh, these are the best!! What a wonderful way to use the spellbinders, they are so beautiful, and it really highlights them. I have the black magic cardstock and have yet to use it, here I go!! They would be great as the focal point of a card, too. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Linda from MN said...

I apologize if this posts twice, it didn't seem to post the first time. Anyway, I love the way you used the spellbinders die cuts for this, and so impressive with the black magic coordinations cardstock! These would be great as the focal point of a card as well. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
