Vintage Blessing – ODBD Sketch

It’s time for a sketch challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. Today’s sketch was so much fun to play with and it also made my design look elegant! As promised last week I’ll be sharing male card ideas throughout the month. My card for today would work well for any occasion and even for a lady, since it incorporates all sorts of elements.

I used 3 different patterned papers from the new ODBD vintage collection and cut two banners included in the same paper pack to add them as elements to my card. I picked black as my accent color and followed the sketch vertically. I really like the new stamp set and I think it matches the design perfectly!

Blessings in a Bottle – Our Daily Bread Designs

This month at Our Daily Bread Designs we are having fun with a wonderful new release! I will be sharing male card ideas throughout the month, not only for Father’s Day but for every occasion! This week there’s a Color Challenge for your inspiration. Here’s what I created:

ODBD stamps used: Good Man, Apothecary Bottles / ODBD dies used: Flourished Star Pattern Die / ODBD paper used: Vintage Ephemera Collection

I used three different sheets from the new vintage papers. The labels I added to the stamped bottles were cut from one of the sheets. I like how the papers coordinate, and I also like how well they look on male cards. I colored the bottles with alcohol markers and added a few embellishments to finish the design.

I have a close-up video for June’s release that I’m adding below. I invite you to check it out. I’m sharing other ODBD products on the video also!

Vintage Male Card & Some Memories

Hi everyone! I feel like it’s been a long time since I posted my last card, but I’m here with a new vintage project to show you. I’ve been wanting to make a male card, since my husband’s birthday is approaching, but for some reason I’m always thinking I should start all over and make a new design. I just want it to be perfect! Another reason for me wanting to create a male project is that tomorrow, March 19, is Father’s Day here. My dear dad passed away a few years ago, and he is missed greatly. He was so charismatic, outgoing, kind-hearted, very smart and proffesional, a great teacher and mentor. He was there for anyone and everyone. A great father. He contributed very much to our country’s agricultural and livestock industry, to education both rural and academic, and most of all he was loved by everyone who knew him.

I had to write about him today, because he was a very important part of what I am doing now. Before he passed he told me I should write, he encouraged me to craft and create and he was my very first sponsor. He bought me the Grand Calibur machine back then and he was glad that I had found something that motivated me and kept me active, considering that I had been recently diagnosed with RA. He was the most supportive father, positive and encouraging, a man of faith. Thank you dad… Happy Father’s Day.

And now, let me show you the vintage male card I made:

Materials
Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps – Vintage Postcard
Prima Marketing stamps – Mini Background Fence
Inkadinkado stamps – Classic Flourish Filigree
Docrafts Papermania stamps – Happy Days (Ticket Stubs)
Inkadinkado embossing powder – Glam Gold, Copper, Pearlescent
ZAP! heating tool
Memento dye ink – Rich Cocoa
Brilliance pigment ink – Pearlescent Beige
Ranger:
– Embossing ink
– Distress inks in: Broken China, Vintage Photo, Old Paper
– Blending tool 
Spellbinders: 
– Gold Elements One 
– Grand Calibur Machine
Bazic mounting tape
Merletto Crystals
Other generic materials:
Specialty metallic cardstock in brown
Textured cardstock in: light brown, cream and white
3/8″ Gross Grain ribbon in light brown

I worked with 3 different layers of cardstock. I enjoyed working with the top layer, distressing it, aging the white cardstock and stamping it. It is a lot of fun to create a vintage background. I love how the gold flourishes add elegance to the design. I finished the card with ribbon, but no bow, and some paper embellishments.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I enjoyed writing this post a lot, so I hope that you enjoy reading it too.
