Our Daily Bread designs October release hop!

I love it when I get to hang out with the Our Daily Bread design team! Today we are showcasing the new releases for October in a blog hop. If you're a regular reader of my blog and just happened upon my section of the hop, you may want to start back at the beginning. Prizes are involved!! The ODBD Blog is the place to get started - actually you'll start and end the hop there, and if you should happen to get lost or interrupted in between, you can always go there for a complete list of links in the correct order. If you came to my blog from Betty's blog, you are doing just fine.

When you see me playing along, you know that I've had a part in the new release...... this month, these designs are my contributions!

Collage designs are so fun to create, and to decorate! I'm excited to bring you a stamp where you can decorate your own tree... especially since I won't get to decorate my Christmas tree this year (we will be traveling to the States in December, so my tree has to stay in the box this time... sigh!). Imagine the possibilities of color schemes, bling and decorations... so much fun. Decorate it differently every time, every day - sure! Way more fun than a real Christmas tree.

I went with a vintage color palette on the collage, using Touch Twin Markers (BR134, Y36, Y41, Y42, RP7, and R2) to color in the image. There is dimensional glaze on the ornaments and Gold Flower Soft as tinsel. I used a little gold leafing on the star, applying it with a Sakura glue pen. The gold edges of my panel and card are Peel Off stickers, also from Flower Soft. I colored the gingham ribbon with a marker to match.

The word collage Joy Tree will make quick and easy CAS (clean and simple) cards a breeze too. Here's mine... in fact I think this will be just the ticket for my Christmas cards this year... simple black on white, with a star eyelet at the top... it will help me use up some ribbon so I can make room for more!! Heheh... And who knows how long I've had those eyelets...

To be eligible to win prizes today (up for grabs: THREE prizes of Choice of 1 FREE SET, and ONE GRAND PRIZE of Choice of 3 FREE SETS!) here is what you have to do:

* Hop to each blog on the list and leave a comment for each designer
* Return to the ODBD Blog, and tell us you completed the hop, follow any other instructions they have for you there, and let us know if there were any blogs you could not comment on.

I am the last stop on the hop today, so after you leave a comment here, you'll be hopping on to the ODBD blog to leave your final comment! Thanks for visiting me today! If you like my designs, stop by and 'like' dkdesigns on Facebook!

(***I do have my comment moderation turned on because I'm over here on the other side of the world, and I'll be sleeping while you hop... don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away!!)

Thanks for stopping by!

  22. Pink is one of my fav colors - just love the vintage look you have created with this stamp and this color. Glaze looks great on the ornaments and the flower soft is the perfect touch for the garland.....those peel off stickers along the edges are awesome, but it wouldn't be complete without that kickin checked bow!!

  24. This is so pretty. I am interested in making cards like these myself. I found you on Our Daily Bread Blog. I am now following you. I have found some other blogs with these creative ideas and have asked if they would be willing to advise me what is involved. I haven't heard back from anyone yet. I also have a blog http://talesfrommyjournal.blogspot.com so you could check me out. My blog is about my hair jewelry. I hope you will get back to me and stop by my little window on the internet.

I love the simple card you made with Joy Tree - I agree that simple black on white with a shot of color is a perfect Christmas card. But that Christmas Tree Collage is so gorgeous too and I love your idea about decorating it however you want to. You could color each one different to send out. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with all of us!
