For the Love of  The Blessings Collection Hop!
 
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 Love of The Blessings Collection! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, check the ODBD blog for full list of links.  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, October 10th at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the beautiful designs using For the Love of The Blessings Collection!

If you got here from beautifully talented Tosh's Blog you are in the right place.  


For my card I am using ODBD You Are the Potter stamp set and Vine background stamp.  


I am using some Echo Park For the Record 2 Tailored designer papers.  I combined four different patterns in keeping with the sketch.  I inked distressed all panels and stitched.  I stamped the focal panel background with the Vine Background in a golden color for a subtle background and to add another color and pattern.  

I stamped the clay pots that come in the set and colored with copics.  To add a just kiln look finished I clear embossed them twice using versamark and clear ep.  I cut out and adhered to the Vine background circle.  I added a few touches of shadow with a C1 copic marker.    I added an ink distressed coordinated seam binding bow top with matching twined knotted button.   I finished with a scripture pennant tag that I stapled with with a criss cross pattern for a stitched look.  I am using this wonderful sketch from Sketch N Stash.  I chose to use an A2 size instead of square.  My stash is something new.  I am using a new Vine background stamp.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the fabulously talented Connie's blog.

  2. What a wonderful take on that sketch! That verse is one of my favorites. It reminds me that He knows so much better than I do what is best for me... even if that means that I need to go through times that in my eyes are less than perfect. Beautiful card!
