introducing...Our Daily Bread Designs!

Sometime in February I started corresponding with Kelley Holland, who had been praying about and taking steps toward creating a Christian Stamp company. In the process of our communicating, she asked me to represent her company as a design team member. Her first stamp set will be released tomorrow, March 17th! The set is called "Light of the World", and it comes beautifully packaged, mounted or unmounted. The unmounted sets are backed with Smart Cushion. The set includes 3 verses, and the lighthouse image.

If you know me at all, you know I love lighthouses, so this set was a joy to work with. If you like what you see, go visit OUR DAILY BREAD DESIGNS - more beautiful sets are in the works, with new releases monthly!

Details on the card - I've found it really fun and challenging to look at an image simply in black and white, so that's how I started off with this set. The card is watercolored...I used 1 single Derwent watercolor pencil - the black one. That black horizontal piece - I don't know where it came from, but I think it was from some kind of toy packaging, you know the kind that are tied in to the box with wire ties? It just had to be on a card. LOL

I'll have more to share tomorrow!


  1. Absolutely beautiful card! The verse looks perfect in that font with "LORD" emphasized by its size. The black and white is classic.
    I'll be checking out the new stamp company......

  2. I LOVE this stamps set!! I followed an ad link from Splitcoast and saw it this morning!!

    WOULD you believe I just made a comitment not to buy any more stamps till summer!!???!! Talk about testing!! UGH!!

    Anyway--I just love the shades of black/grey you used for this. It is an awesome card to have on hand for a multitude of puposes!!

    I can't wait to see more!!
