ODBD April New Release

Good morning!
Time for the April New release blog hop!!
Oh you quilters are going to love these new dies and stamp sets.

My first card is an easel card to show off the new Dresden die AND the new Dresden stamp set (featured inside under the sentiment).
My sister is recovering from a broken collar bone so I will be sending this card to her.

ODBD paper used: Cozy Quilt Collection
I cut the Dresden Quilt pieces from 3 papers out of the Cozy Quilt Collection and from white then pieced them in the way I wanted them on top of a light sage green cardstock.  I  cut the green cardstock with the Double Stitched Squares and the rectangle piece underneath with the Double Stitched Rectangles.
To elongate a rectangle, place the top plate of your cutting sandwich just to but not covering the bottom horizontal cut (the die will ONLY cut where the top plate is), then, after your first cut, take the die out and place it on the cut but further down and place the top plate so that it cuts only the extra length and not across the horizontal top. 


 You can see the top plate does NOT go over the end.  I use removable tape to hold my die in place.

To make this vertical easel card, cut your 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock into 2 pieces 11 X 4 1/4.  Using one piece as a base, score at 5 1/2" and then again at 8 1/4". Cut the other piece in half at 5 1/2" and use one piece for your front (top).  Glue to just the 2 3/4" end so that the ends are even and card folds down to 5 1/2 X 4 1/4".
On the inside you will need something popped up to act as a "stop" to hold your card open.

Base
 

My next card is the Star Quilt.  I love this quilt design!
I am not a quilter so there is a lot I need to learn about pattern placement but 
now I have this die to play with I will be doing a lot of experimenting!!
ODBD stamps used: All Mothers
I used a light green and a dark green with tan to coordinate with the colors in the Cozy Quilt papers on this card. The sentiment was cut with one of the rectangles in the Log Cabin Quilt die. The ribbon is died to match seam binding.

Here are some verses about the body of Christ-His church.  Remember to love one another and work together to further the kingdom of God here on earth.


4:15-16
15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ from whom the whole body, joined and stitched together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.



that their hearts may be encouraged, being stitched together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ,

Oh, Robin, your cards are gorgeous, as usual! I knew you would have a treat for me when I visited your blog and you certainly didn't disappoint me! I love the softness of your first card, and I'm so happy you provided a tutorial. That tip is great. Your second card is just as gorgeous as your first. You may not be a quilter, but your design is delightful! Sweet Robin, you have a wonderful and blessed weekend.

First of all, Robin, I'm so sorry to hear about your sister's breaking her collar bone. I broke mine many years ago, and it was life altering. So I pray she will rest and recover well and that she is getting help around the house. She is going to love your easel card, and it's beautiful! I love the new papers and really love your green bows! Beautifully done! And your second card is gorgeous. I love the placement of your "fabric" and think it's perfect. Sometimes we want the favorite "fabric" to be front stage, and I think it works perfectly. I love the designer and your stunning ribbon! Hugs, sweet friend!

Nora J said...

I ordered this die today. I'm a quilter, so I will enjoy making cards with it. Your card is beautiful.

Liz said...

The number of combinations of patterned paper you can combine is amazing!

Liz said...

These dies are wonderful and you've made such beautiful cards.
