ODBD May New Release Blog Hop

Good Morning!
Welcome to the May Release Blog Hop!
Look at these fun new stamps and dies!!!  Just in time for some Teacher appreciation cards & gifts!

End of the school year gift set for your favorite teacher.

Gift basket
ODBD stamps: Seeds of Knowledge
I made my basket and used the Americana Quilt paper for the insets.  I filled the basket with some iridescent filler (like what is used in Easter baskets) then stamped, die cut and colored 3 of the large teacher's apples.  I attached floral picks to the backside and stuck them into the "grass".
I then made a tag with a combo of words from the Seeds of Knowledge stamp set.

Matching card.
ODBD stamps: Class Act
ODBD dies: Clipboard Set, Notebook Paper (stamp/die set), Alphabet
I used a light blue and red (like the tag on my basket) to make my card base.  Added a strip of decorative paper from the Americana Quilt collection and buttons and bow to match my basket.
I then used a brownish card stock for the clipboard and silver mat for the clip part (I cut two of them so that I could pop the top one up at an angle just like a real clipboard. I cut the pencil and ruler from a matching blue (medium) and stamp then fussy cut my stack of books.  I stamped and die cut the notebook paper, stamped my words on it and then die cut the ABC to go on the top of the paper.

This card is for a Sunday School teacher appreciation.
Your Sunday School teacher can even use the cross for a book marker as it is easily detached.
ODBD stamps: Sunday School Teacher

I used a recent SplitCoastStampers sketch for my layout, I really liked it.
After getting my base layers on I stitched around the layers with my sewing machine. I then added the cross and sentiment panel.
I happen to have a ton of tassels so I punched a hole at the top of my cross and attached the tassel...The color was a perfect match to the ODBD Shabby Rose Collection paper background color.

Romans 5:6-8

New King James Version

[ Christ in Our Place ] For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
