Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop for the For the Love of ODBD Tag sets! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, go to the ODBD blog for the full link list.  One of the post is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, April 25th at 6 pm.  The winner will be announced April 26th!  Enjoy all the amazing creations using For the Love of ODBD Tag sets!

I am first on the hop today.  If you got here from the ODBD Blog you are in the right spot!  
 



For my card I am using ODBD  Baking Tag set, Quote Collection 1, and Randi Song stamp sets.   I stamped the tag frame in Ranger Crushed Corduroy ink.  I then stamped the script image from Randi's Song set into the frame using Memento grape ink.  I stamped off so the color would be softer.  I love that while the script image is longer than the tag it is the perfect width to fit inside.   Once die cut with ODBD Custom Tag die it is a perfect fit.  I then stamped the Robert Frost quote from Quote Collection 1 inside with Memento tuxedo black ink.   I used the Stamp a Ma Jig to perfectly place the quote.  I wanted it slightly tilted within the frame offset a little from the soft script background.  I wanted to show how this tag truly can be the focal image frame for your card.  I also wanted to show how well it works with other ODBD images and stamps. 

The set I am showing you is a Baking Tag set, but I am not showing you anything that shows signs of baking.  I figured the baking aspects of the set could speak for themselves      (that and the fact that I did not want to have any baking confection around me since I am trying to diet. I must say some Banana Nut Bread has been calling my name, though.  It would not have been pretty).     Anyway, I wanted to show you other uses for this set.  Take for instance the Homemade just for you stamp.  It works perfectly for the back of cards, too.  See below?  All I need to do now is just sign it.  Love the versatility.


In addition to the versatility of the Tag sets in general, I wanted to show you a few fun options you can create with just the ODBD Custom Tag die.  Once you cut the tag out once just by placing it back into the die other looks can be achieved.  I can make shorter tags, a Trading Card sized frame with rounded corners, bookplates and other fun tags.  Here are just a few different looks.  Lots of options for sure to add other fun tags to your projects.
    

  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  
Next on the hop is Fran!
