We Three Kings sneak peek

One last sneak peek at some of the newest Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps :)! They'll all be available this Wednesday, October 1st! The set I'm using today is We Three Kings. This first card uses some of my favorite, traditional Christmas colors, Real Red & Old Olive. For some reason, the sentiment looks blurry in the photo, but is completely crisp irl...not sure what happened there, one of those digital camera looks great till I upload it...weird, huh?! Also used my brand spankin new Top Note Bigz Die, one of the exclusive dies made by SU for the Big Shot :) ! It makes those little perforation/paper pierced details for's so easy...I love that machine!! Plus the Top Note die is a great size for an image piece (it's about 3 3/4 x 4 3/4", point to point).
Here are the Copics I used for the image. I kept the coloring fairly simple and created shading with the red and green by coloring on layers and using a Red, Gold & Clear Spica glitter pen and Sakura clear glaze pen. This card has some nice, clean simple lines, made with Night of Navy, Silver & White. I used my Scor-Pal to create dry embossing lines around the image piece and around and under the sentiment. This was my first time trying this technique with the Scor-pal and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. Because of the simplicity, this is a style of card that could be mass produced for Christmas cards. I always save some of my extra special, more detailed cards for our closest friends and family, but the other 50-60 cards that get mailed out need to be much this one!

This last card uses some non-traditional Christmas colors (Pacific Point & More Mustard)...I was experimenting a bit with color, but I think its works? I'm sure I can find someone on my Christams card list who won't mind non-traditional colors...infact, I can probably find someone who would prefer that ;)

Thanks for stopping by :) ... Hope you enjoyed the ODBD sneak peeks over the past few days. I have more to show you from Pink Poison coming up later this week, a few simple tutorials, and some fantastic GSG2 new catty swaps and fun new SU stamps too!!!
