Light of the World

I've been sooooo excited for today and finally get to show you these brand new stamps by Our Daily Bread Designs! And guess what? I'm on the Design Team!! My very first...it's a dream come true. Beautiful, top quality stamps, featuring scripture and a corresponding image. Plus, Kelley is giving a portion of her proceeds to help feed the hungry...that's pretty cool, don't you think? Let me introduce you to the very creative & talented design team Kelley has put together (not sure how I ended up with this group, but I'm so happy to be here!!):
Amy Sheffer
Angel Wilde
Dina Kowal
Kelly Sampson
Lauren Meader
Laurie Schmidlin

Kelley's first set is called Light of the World...you can check out the entire set right HERE!! PLUS, Kelley has given me a set to give away, so be sure to keep reading, for all the details on how you can WIN a set of your very own = ) !!!!Wooo-hooo!!!! I have so much to show you and tell you today, so we better move on. The first card was done for today's SCS Sketch Challenge, SC168.


I made this little box to hold scripture cards. The finished size is 2 1/4 deep x 3 1/4 wide x 3 1/4 tall. The box is Jen Del Muro's design, and you can find her fabulous tutorial right HERE! Thanks Jen, that box was perfect to hold each of Kelley's verses, and plenty of room in the box to add more as she releases new sets each month!! I have a little easel that is just right for featuring the one I want to see and memorize!

As soon as I saw these stamps, I knew I wanted to do a red, white & blue card....and this is it. I wanted to add a little dimension to the card, so I stamped an extra image of the lighthouse, cut it out, and popped it up on dimensionals. Really quick and easy and added a nice element to the card (you can see that a little better in the 2nd photo). As I was taking the photo, the sun was shining through the window and added a nice beam of light to the card. Seemed fitting for the scripture. It's been about a week of non-stop overcast rain and drizzle here on the Oregon Coast, so it was a blessing to see sunshine today!!

This next card is a simple 4 1/4 square. Mostly DP, and featuring the verse. I think a set of these notecards, using each of the 3 verses, would make a lovely gift! Something I plan on making in the near future!!

I was going to post this last card on St Patrick's Day, earlier this week, because there's so much green in it, but I wasn't sure I liked it. Maybe a bit too much green, but I like the layout, so I thought I'd show you. There's a green rhinestone brad in the center of the flower and the image is stamped on Shimmery white...so irl, there's some nice shimmer & sparkle going on!! So....those are my first projects and I'll be showing you more over the next few weeks. I am so impressed with these stamps Kelley has designed. Not only are they beautiful, they are REALLY easy to use. You know when you get a new stamp....you ink it up...put it to paper....and get to see that first image?? Well, for me, it was the lighthouse, and I have to tell you, the first image, was perfectly crisp and clean, I literally let out a little gasp of delight = ) ! Now that's a great stamp! You can check out Kelley's blog, The Stampng Studio, HERE...and the Our Daily Bread Designs site, HERE.

Wait a minute...I think I mentioned BLOG CANDY?? Kelley has given me a "Light of the World" set to give away!! To be entered, all you need to do is pop over to Our Daily Bread Designs, take a look around, then come back here and leave me a comment on this post, telling me what you think of Kelley's new Stamp Company! I will draw a random winner, on Saturday morning!!

#2 Congrats on your addition to the design team. I'm sure many more opportunities also await you in the future. This truly is a lovely stamp set. I particularly like the font used on the bible verses. All your creations made with this set are beautiful. Funny thing is, a month or so ago I was on SCS & saw a few spiritual cards that didn't really move me. That same evening I prayed for a designer to make a set that would inspire & speak to me. Looks like my prayer was answered. TFS!

Wow Nancy...these cards are beautiful! I really love how clean all your designs turned out!! The red, white, and blue one is fabulous...but the sketch challenge you did is so beautiful...it flows so amazing! That's my favorite today!

When I saw this website and the images I was excited. I like the clean layout of the website and love that a portion of the proceeds go to charity!!! Congratulations on being on the design team!!

Jenn in GA said...

very nice stamps and your execution is marvelous!

my favorite thing at the daily bread site was the little tutorial that was offered about how to condition your new rubber in order to get a solid image! so helpful!

can't wait to see what other verses she will produce.

Congratulations on being on the design team! :) You work is beautiful!

You're a great addition to be on the team - you've worked hard and do an awesome job. What a wonderful idea to have stamping and christian stamps all in one. Absolutely love the lighthouse, especially where we live - so close to many. Interesting on how to sand your stamp to condition it. Love ya. Sis

Amy said...

I love that the stamps can be on either wood or on smart cushion. Can't wait to see more. (I would leave a number, but it looks like they got off. I think it's because the screen refreshes at different times, depending on when each person is posting, so it's bound to be off for somebody). Thanks for the chance!

Lee Bradford said...

Do you want to hear something really funny? I had your blog open on the lower bar most of the day because I planned on casing your cute little girl dress. Right before I began working on the project, I clicked on a banner for Our Daily Bread Designs on SCS. I was so impressed with the rich artwork and quality of the sets! It wasn't until now that I noticed the new additions to your blog. I don't think it is coincidence! These sets will be perfect for the group I lead Faithbooking at church. Thank you for sharing! Sorry this is so long!

I just had to tell you how beautiful all of these cards are. Don't include my name in your drawing, however, as I ordered this set a couple days ago. Congrats on being on the DT - you will be quite an asset.

I am blown away by the variety of designs that you came up with for this set. I have loved lighthouses since I first visited Split Rock Lighthouse in Minnesota back in 1985. I'm so glad that Kelly has designed this set for us. It will be wonderful for use in card ministry. I will be tracking the Daily Bread web site for new designs as they are released. Thanks for the inspiration. God bless you. Elizabeth S. in mid-Michigan

I am looking forward to what the company has to bring us in the future! I like that the stamps come unmounted, but most of all the contributions to feeding the hungry shows that this is more than just a company that produces scripture stamps, it is a company of people who have a relationship with our Lord God and want to serve Him well! :)

I really like the stamp set. I agree with all the comments about how nice it is to see a Bible based stamp set.

One of my favorite verses is "Be still and know that I am God." It translates directly from the Norwegian Bible as "Shut up and know that I am God." Isn't that cool? Sometimes we need to just shut up and know. I also would love to see "Every good and perfect gift comes from above coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights who does not change like shifting shadows." and "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask..." Both of those are in 1 Tim. 1, and I love to use them with baby cards, invites, etc.

Yolanda said...

How exciting! Congrats on your addition to the design team. I would love the opportunity to win such an awesome stamp set. I have all these ideas running thru my head for this set. I love Lighthouses and the font on the verses is just gorgeous. I can't wait to see future sets. I'am certain that they will be just as awsome as the first. I went over to Our Daily Bead Designs site and from what I saw they are off to a good start, not to mention that I love companies that give back to the community. That is so cooool!
Good Luck to everyone on thier endeavors.

I LOVE this first set and I can't wait for her to add more and more. There was a very real need for quality Christian stamps and I think we're seeing that now that other sites are adding some too. May GOD bless your efforts and your ministry.
