ODBD September Mid Month New Release

Good Morning every one!  Today we get to show you another new release for September...that's right, September!!  Our Daily Bread Designs is working overtime to bring you new and exciting designs this month!!
We are calling this our Mid-Month Release and this is our Blog Hop to show it off to you!  I hope you have been enjoying all the beautiful cards you've seen along the way but if I am your first stop, make sure you visit the other designers to see everything new and all the fantastic designs!

This is my first card.  The first thing I thought of when I saw this set was the Wildflower the grows in our Sierra National Forest, the Crimson Columbine.  It is a beautiful red flower with a bright yellow center as you see here.  The stamen are also bright yellow but inside of each yellow petal (shaped like a cone) is a red spot going down deep to meet the red petals.

I used Lemon Yellow acrylic paint on a stylist for the Stamen on this card.
The Hummingbird was reversed by stamping it onto a piece of smooth rubber then using that image, stamped onto paper.  It works very well except ink is a little lighter because of the double stamping.

My next card is another version of the Columbine, found around here but not as common.  The petals are bluish lavender with whitish center petals
For this card I used the Grateful stamp set and the Doily and Lacey Layered Squares die sets.
For this card I used some Prills to make my stamen.  I used some Pearlescent Lavender Brilliance Ink to sponge color on this card.
 I also used White satin 1" ribbon, embossing folders and foam tape to give it more texture.
My "extra card" 

For this card I used the Grateful stamp set. Columbine are Crimson and the stamen is Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls.  I used the Boho Background, Faith, Hope & Love, Leafy Edged Border, Vintage Flourish Pattern and Vintage Labels
Extras for this card are 3M foam tape, Embossing folder, 1" white satin ribbon and Liquid Pearls.

I have never personally seen columbines. They are a pretty flower. I like how you've incorporated a lot of the ODBD products into these cards. For those of us who are just starting our collection it really helps to see how things meld together so easily and beautifully. I love dies and the new Leafy Edged border dies that you used shaped the one card so nicely. Both cards are beautiful.

Beautiful, Robin! I especially love that you added the little hummingbird on the first. I just saw 2 this morning fighting over who owned the feeder, lol. I'll miss them when they fly south for the winter (prob. in a couple of weeks). Really gorgeous cards!
