Fruit of the Spirit

Exciting things coming up for Our Daily Bread designs' 1st anniversary! It's hard to believe it's been a year since Kelley contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in working with her new company. It has been a real blessing to work with new images each month, to have a part in creating new sets and seeing my stamp designs become a blessing to others, and to work with such an amazing design team - not only is this team full of talent, but full of compassion and life as well. Happy Birthday ODBD!!!!!

Well, this week each team member is featuring one of the sets that has been released over the last year...and some of us even get to give a set away! Guess what?!! You can win the set I used on the cards below - Fruit of the Spirit! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post - I'll make it easy on you. ;) I'll draw a winner March 18th at midnight EST. Good luck!Here's a card I made just for the occasion...using the Fruit set and several products available from ODBD - be sure to check out their 'accessories' section, because it's really growing! Did you know that you can now purchase Shimmerz, Prismatics cardstock, flat-back pearls, Basic Grey paper pads, Glimmer Mist, Ornare templates, Distress pads/reinkers...........I could keep going! I used some metallic cardstock, scored with my Scor-Pal (you can get that there too...!) for the background panels. The main panel is watercolored with reinkers and watercolor pencils. You can mix Shimmerz with reinkers when you paint, for some major sparkle - a little bit goes a really long way!

Here are some other cards I've made over the last year with the Fruit of the Spirit set - you can click on each one for more info. Be sure to check out Betty's blog, Stamping to the Wright, too - she's showing off this set today as well! But don't forget to come back and enter the drawing!

  1. Hi Dina,

    Beautiful pieces you've created over this last year (today too :D)with this lovely Fruit of the Spirit set. The fruit of your spirit shines through in every one!
    (Hmmm...something about that sounds like it could be taken more than one way - oh well be assured I meant it in the best possible sense - LOL!)
    Thanks for sharing your lively spirit and love of the Lord and stamping with all of us that check into the blogosphere from time to time. Thanks too for sharing such inspirational blog candy. Feel better soon.

    Peace and blessings - Jean

  2. Dina ... I love your ideas on these cards. This set is on my wish list as the verses in the set are favorites of mine. I really like the scoring on the side panel - great extra touch. You are a huge blessing and inspiration to me. I check your blog almost every day. I do hope you are feeling better soon. Take care, my friend, and God bless you. Elizabeth S. in mid-Michigan
