ODBD September Release

It's the first of the month, and that means it's time for the ODBD Release!! You are going to love these stunning sets. We're getting a jump on Christmas, so I have two Holiday cards to share with you today. 
You have an opportunity to win some fabulous ODBD goodies too.  One winner will be randomly chosen from one of the designers blog comments to receive a $50 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps.  You have until September 3, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. EST to make your comments!  The Winner will be posted on the ODBD Blog on September 4th, so be sure to check back there to see if you won.

I used the new set Holly Wreath for both of my cards.  The first one uses one of the beautifully fonted sentiments with a faux quilted bg that I created using my Scor-Pal and a stylus to burnish the back.  That gives the diamonds a "puffy" look.


For my second card I created a faux door to hang my wreath on using a Wood embossing folder by Sizzix.  The wreath was colored with Copics.


Here's a look at the inside of the card.  I cut a trio of Holly leaves from the wreath and added it to the sentiment flag.

If you haven't checked each one of these DT's blogs, you better hop right on over there.  They are just super full of inspiration!!



That's it for me.  Happy Stamping ya'll!!

All are so beautiful, Tosh. Love the diamond embossing pattern with the pearls and I really, really love the door with the wreath. Wish I had a front door like that!

I just love both of these! The simplicity of the quilted card is so pretty! I will have to remember your technique of using a stylus to burnish the back for that look. I love the wood door with the wreath on it. And thanks for showing the inside of your card--I always wonder what all of you designers do. :) Beautiful!
