Welcome to January

Welcome to 2013!

And Welcome to my blog from Lisa Somerville’s blog, here at the Our Daily Bread designs January New Releases blog hop!

The January new releases include stamp sets for children as well as a new Antique Labels stamp sets suite (which I happened to design!!)

Here is my card. It has a warm vintage feel which I achieved using brown and champagne tones with pink and green.

My idea for these stamp sets came from my mother-in-law. She is very active in her Methodist church and does lots of service work in the community. Sometimes you would like to recognize these active church volunteers with cards and small gifts that show their work is appreciated! The Fellowship Sentiments stamp set meets that need. Look how nicely the word “Love” fits inside the small dotted border in the Antique Labels Designs stamp set. I love adding small dangling words to my cards in collage fashion and the Words of Faith stamp set is designed for that! I also like having many coordinating stamps to match the labels in the Antique Labels Designs set. On this card I used the small cross and the corner flourish to accent the greeting! I put a pretty pink rhinestone in the center of the cross.

I also designed the All Occasion Sentiments stamp set (which I didn’t use on this card). The idea behind that set is a versatile set of Christian greetings that could be used both inside and outside of a card. I like this stamp set because it can be used with just about any other set that is sold by Our Daily Bread designs! That’s what makes it a “must have” set for your collection!

I hope you enjoy using these stamp sets! I had so much fun designing them!!
