Blog friends, can you believe it is already May? Welcome to the ODBD May 2012 New Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from The Our Daily Bread Designs blog, you are in the right place! If not, you’ll sure want to start there so you don’t miss a chance to win any of the four great prizes this month as well as to get the scoop on all the details there! The full blog hop list is also on the ODBD blog just in case you get stuck along the way.
I needed yet another graduation card so for my card today, I finally put together an idea I’ve had on my mind for quite some time. I love using vellum and Pergamano and wanted to create a subtle card using the see through elements so I picked a balanced element using Spellbinders™ Damask Motifs. My card is 5.5″ x 7″ and the vellum is attached to the top layer of my panel and falls free over the front. Once in place, I could hide the glue dots I used to adhere each element by placing a pearl on top. Using a simple sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Dreams Set, on my vellum base I used Spellbinders™ Splendid Circles and layered Spellbinders™ Twisted Metal Tags and Accents on top. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment on Spellbinders™ Ribbon Tags Trio.
The Hop will run from 8:00 am Eastern Time on May 1st until 8:00 pm Eastern Time on May 2nd. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on May 3rd.

Becca, You are the best. I come to your blog the first thing daily. You always make me inspire me. Your work is so beautiful. You have such a gently way about you and it shows in you work. I was blessed to be able to meet you in person Sat. at Akron and that will always be a treasured memory.
This is such a pretty card. It has given me some ideas for graduation cards I have to make. I forget that it doesn’t have to have a diploma or a mortar board to be a suitable grad card.

Beautiful card again Becca, I just love your work and you give me such inspiration. Thank you for sharing all your wonderful cards with us.
I am new to card making and came across your Blog from a recommendation from a YouTube video. I just love your sight! You are so creative and your instructions are so easy even I can follow! I love this card! I have seen wedding invitations with vellum and never thought to use it in a card. Genius! I look forward to the next one. P.S. It’s always great to find a sister in Christ! God Bless!
Loeve the motifs behind the vellum and also the use of the twisted metal tags. It is a very beautiful card. Blessings.
Beautiful! Love the dies used, the font of the Congratulations and the colors!

I love the colors you use together. I especially like the way you intertwine your die cuts. It makes such a dramatic effect. I love it.
How absolutely beautiful! Love the colors and all the interesting dies used for this card.
I closed my eyes before opening up your blog guessing what color you would use on today’s card. I picked green. When I opened them there was this gorgeous teal card which gave me quite a chuckle! One of my very favorite colors….gotta try and make something that looks like your card. But, could that ever happen? Not much of a chance for that. You did an awesome job coordinating every element here. It is just beautiful.
Good morning Becca, what a beautiful way to start my day. I look forward to it each and every morning. Your card is absolutely gorgeous. The color combination and the use of spellbinders is amazing! Thank You Becca for sharing your idea`s, you are so giving.
Pure elegance! I’m in awe. Then again I am always in awe when I visit your blog. This is such a lovely card. The many elements are in perfect harmony, each complementing the other. What a gift.

Oh My Stars, this is absolutley gorgeous!!!!
Becca, this is beautiful, the colors are so soft and pretty.
WOW! Becca, I really love the color combo and these dies are so elegant . Just a gorgeous card…… hugs and smiles.
Becca, love the design of this card. You truely are the guru of combining Spellbinder shapes to create such fabulous creations. I love the softness that vellum provides to projects, but never have found any type of glue that really works so that you don’t see it. You have cleverly masked your glue dots like I never seem to be able to do. Beautifully done.
What a wonderful idea to shadow the cardstock behind the vellum. Beautiful congratulations card.
I do not usually enter comments – but your creativity and cards are absolutely beautiful. O to be so creative … what God given talent. I am lucky that I can copy ideas and that we have so many talented folks willing to share. I do not see a place to purchase products through you. Do you sell products or only advertise for the company whose product you use?
Now will C if I get an answer when I write a comment. I sure wish I was not standing behind the door when God handed out talents. I was lucky to be adoped and both my adopted mom and dad were creative and ! was taught how to adapt others work.
I love the colors you used on this card!
Becca, I totally admire your artistic abilities. You make everything so beautiful.
This congratulations card is so elegant and beautiful. I can’t wait to be able to dig in and see more of you work. Thank you for sharing your creativity!
The intricacies of your lovely layered look (say THAT three times fast) are just beautiful, Becca! As always, your designs are inspiring and awesome!
Oh gosh i love this design and the colours are so delicious to look at, i think this is a card i’m going to have a go at soon :D
As always I love your designs, and this is an wonderful card. Neat technique thanks for sharing.
Cool using the die cut elements under the vellum for the background. I like the font of that new stamp.
Becca, such a beautiful card. Love your coloring and your vellum used as a foreground and the tourquoise design as a background. Comes through so beautifully.. The flowers are so gorgeous… with the pearls! Another stunning card.
This is beautiful. I love the colours and the choice of spellbinders.
