April Release Day 3

Hello there, Friends! Today is the final day of our April Release Hop! Thank you for the enthusiastic and positive response regarding these products!

Today, I'm going to share the product graphics of everything we released and a couple of new projects as well as all the projects I created for you this week. If you would like to full description of everything we've released I invite you to visit our Day 1 Post HERE and Day 2 Post HERE. Of course, all of the product descriptions are on our website HERE.

Here are a couple of new projects I've made to share with you today...

I wanted to show you just how lovely our new Quick Notes Stamp Set can be if just used on a card front and without it's companion Quick Notes Star Fold Out Die. I looove this font and I love that it's even a little distressed! Here is simply scribbled some watercolor pencils onto watercolor paper and blended using a foam brush. Once completely dry, and a heat gun can help with that, I stamped my sentiment in black ink and mounted my focal panel on a black, square card base. I think this makes for a very sweet note!

I wanted to show you that our new Frames & Flowers Die Set is the perfect frame to capture a colored in stamp. We recently re-introduced our Funny Bunnies Stamp Set in a new 4x6 Stamp Set Size and I wanted to use it because the bunnies in this set are just so cute! Inside the frame my bunny is sitting on some green vellum grass. This is actually a piece of scrap from cutting the largest frame in this set. It works as grass but because of the way we've designed it has our stitching detail too! My card base was created with kraft cardstock and our new Quilted Stitched Pattern Die and the sentiment panel was created with my pinking shears. Also featured are some of the clouds from our Cloudy Sky Die. I forgot how much I like to color! It was fun dusting off the Copics!

One last card for you today. This one features the You're My Favorite Stamp Set and flowers from the Frames & Flowers Die Set. If you notice, one of my flowers has a heart center and that's from our Floating Hearts Die. To make the multicolored sentiment I just dabbed three different ink colors onto my stamp and achieved this watery, but colorful look. My background was created using our Cover Up Die: Stitches & Stripes and my focal panel was created with a scrap piece of paper and the tag hole die from our Anytime Tags Die Set. I love the way this turned out!!! I hope you do too!

Here are the other projects I shared earlier this week...

Our new Quick Notes Products are the coolest! I can't WAIT until I get some more crafty time so I can make and set aside a whole bunch of these.

Loving all the things our new Frames & Flowers Die Set can do!

Seriously? Is there anything better than our new Quilted & Stitched Die and the flowers from our Frames & Flowers Die Set!!! These are products I'm going to reach for over and over again!

Smart Cookie is just simply a MUST have! I LOVE IT! It makes me smile every time I see it!

Another fun out of the box use for our Frames & Flowers Die set!
