~ ODBD Fancy Fan Die ~

It is hard to believe that April is drawing to a close.  As I write this post, the daytime temp has dropped to a crazy 57 degrees.  In just a few days, the weather forecast calls for a balmy 87 degrees!  Seriously???  It is no wonder that respiratory illnesses are EVERYWHERE!  Springtime in the Bluegrass state can bring a variety of weather events...  we have had snow on or close to Easter...  nearly 90 degree temps for high school graduations...  wild and crazy spring storms....  It's kind of like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates...  So with the weather fluctuating so wildly, it is easy to change your creative mood!  Today, I have a soft color palette featuring blue and white PLUS a few items from Our Daily Bread Designs' April release.  The May release is just around the corner, so don't forget to pop back by on May 1st to see what new items I have to share!  But in the meantime, let's go back and revisit the pastel shades of spring...

Isn't that a darling s…

Good morning!  Today, I am sharing a card created with Our Daily Bread Designs'To My Friend stamp set, Roses DieRose Leaves Die and Lattice Background Die.  I used one color card stock, white. I spritzed a bit of glitter spray on the rose and leaves after molding and before placing on the card.  I started with a white card stock base (4.25 x 5.5 inches).  I created the frame to place over the Lattice Background Die with two nested dies from ODBD's Pierced Rectangles Die.  I cut the various petals before spritzing with water and molding to create the blossom.  I chose black ink for the sentiment and framed the message with another die from the Pierced Rectangles Die set.  

Here are the items you see used here...

A Look Back at ODBD's April Release

Good morning and welcome to a special look back at Our Daily Bread Designs' April Release.  For this project, I used the Luminous Lantern DieRose DieRose Leaves Die and Lovely Flower stamp set...For more inspiration using the April Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.  And check the end of today's post for links to all of the DT members.  Take a peek at some of the items they created with the April release.

You see a few old favorites as well...

I covered each of the 5 panels with die cut vellum using ODBD's Rectangles Die and the green vines were created with the Fancy Foliage Die.  I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and used the Pennant Flags Die cut down to fit the front panel.  A bit of scrap seam binding was woven and tied on top...

Here are the new items you see...

The Road

Image
Have you ever wondered why getting to a destination seems to take so much longer than the return trip home?  Maybe, it is the anticipation of sleeping in your own bed...  getting clothing out of your own furniture... or the familiarity and order of the things in your home.  You don't have to go on a seek and find mission to find the coffee maker.  You don't have to unpack and hang up clothes in a strange closet.  You don't have to worry whether you might have a hair dryer, ironing board and iron.  There is continuity, a certain sameness to the routine and the items that surround me.  An order, if you will, that allows me to feel comfortable...  at home.  Over the years, I have befriended people who offered the same comfort and familiarity.  I know I can stop by their home, dial their number or see them out and about and we can take up where we last left off.  The road to their house is never long...   you just have to find it again...
Blessings...
