Taste and See



When I saw the two new sets that Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing today, I felt like doing cartwheels I was so excited! Today's card uses Fruit of the Spirit, which comes with this lovely fruit bowl, four related Bible verses, and, as always, a signature stamp (is that what you call them? in this set it's "An original design by").

Almost as exciting as the stamp sets is the fact that Our Daily Bread Designs is now carrying Prismatic card stock by Prism! If you have not seen or tried this card stock, I highly and enthusiastically recommend it. One side is smooth and the other has a unique, almost leather-looking texture to it. But even the textured side takes ink nicely, as you can see on the sentiment here. The card stock comes in packs of twelve 12x12 sheets. Each pack comes with 4 dark, 4 medium, and 4 light variations of the same color. Kelley sent her design team samples of the colors I used today along with a color challenge. Didn't she pick out some gorgeous colors?!

Also, today is the last day of previews for the Verve Visual sets that will be released tomorrow. You'll find more design team peeks, along with a chance to win a free set, on the Verve blog. Good luck to you!
