On Eagles' Wings

Today is another release day for Our Daily Bread Designs! I had so much fun this past wekeend using the new On Eagles' Wings set, which includes a gorgeous bald eagle and two Scripture passages. I love this first Scripture passage. Just perfect to encourage someone going through a tough time.

By the way, Our Daily Bread Designs stamps are available wood mounted or with Smart Cushion (no blocks). I wasn't familiar with the Smart Cushion system before using these stamps. Now I wish all of my unmounted stamps came this way! The images are made of rubber and come already trimmed. The cushion side sticks to an acetate storage sheet just like clear stamps. So they come ready to use - just peel off the storage sheet, stick on an acrylic block, and start stamping. Kelley Holland, the owner, posted a fascinating peek at her production process on her blog recently. If you've ever wondered about stamp manufacturing, check it out. Kinda cool! (Just don't let the Vulcanizer get you!)

Back to the new releases. There are two: On Eagles' Wings, which I'm using today, and First Holy Communion. Another thing I really like about these sets is that each one includes some type of "Stamped by ..." image you can use on the backs of your cards. And as always, a portion of all proceeds is donated to a hunger center to help those less fortunate. I love Kelley's generosity!

Here are two more samples:

I LOVE the simplicity of the Eagle card. You always have the best ideas for how to add just the right touch to a project. I would never have thought of using the SwissDot piece as the focal point. Gorgeous!!!

Love your eagle card. It's beautiful. And I love the small touch of the circle cut into the side where the ribbon is tied. Simply beautiful.

Fabulous Amy! I just love the little circle notch in the first and love the way the focus is on the sentiment in the second and the scallops and DP on the third are wonderful. WOW!!
