August Our Daily Bread Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Welcome to our August Release Blog Hop!  We have been having fun playing with these sets and we know you will too! 
If you arrived here from
Kathy Jones, you are in the right place!  If not, you might want to start at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog to get your bearings.  If for any reason a link along the hop is broken, simply return to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog  to see who is next on the list :-)  Blog hop morning is a busy time for blogs so if you are unable to leave a comment, no worries, circle back to that blog at the end.

We want you to have fun and be able to zip through the hop so we’re keeping it simple!  There are no secret words to collect, no email to send, but there are still goodies up for grabs.  Three of our design team has prizes hidden throughout the hop – even the designers don’t know.  You’ll want to make your way through the entire hop for sure!

Here’s What You Need to Know to Win:

  • The Blog Hop runs from 8am EST on Sunday, August 1 through 8pm EST on Monday, August 2nd.

  • There will be 3 Winners . . . who will each receive a $15.00 gift certificate to shop in the ODBD Store.

  • Winners will be randomly chosen from all the qualified entries by the three designers with the blog candy and will be announced on Monday, August 2nd on the ODBD Blog. 


Here’s What You Need to Do to Win: 

  • Hop to each blog of the Our Daily Bread Design team and leave a comment on each blog.

  • Return to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog  and leave a comment that you completed the hop and left comments for each designer.

  • If for any reason you cannot leave a comment, please give us the name/s of the designers you were unable to leave comments for… and you’ll still be qualified for the drawing.

For my card I’m using one of the new Our Daily Bread Designs sets called Don’t Worry.  There are lots of new sets – you can check them out HERE.  I’m using one of my favorite new Spellbinder die templates called Nested Hearts.  I simply interlocked four of the hearts after stenciling and distressing them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I perched a pearl in the center then put foam tape under one hump of the heart so that the edge would slope up and the entire card would have some dimension.  I found a curved pearl motif in my Zva Creative Pearl collection and applied it to three of the four hearts keeping one heart free for my sentiment. 

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs – Don’t Worry
Paper:  The Paper Company, Paper Studio
Ink: Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Versamark
Accessories:  Spellbinders™ Nested Hearts, Pearls, Ribbon, Gold Detail Embossing, Zva Creative Pearls

Okay, now I need to send you on your way.  Your next stop along the way is to visit

Get ready for some wonderful eye candy.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the hop.
