April 2014 Release Day!

Hooray for release day!  It's finally here! :)  The DT has been anxiously preparing to share this fabulous release with you but before I reveal all the new goodies, I wanted to mention a couple important things...

{Please bear with us...this is a LONG post.}

~This month's release is a LARGE release because we will not be having a release next month.  Our plan is to do bi-monthly releases at least through the spring & summer months.

~Instead of following up our release day with a week of blog hops featuring each new product we will be spreading our features out through April & May in conjunction with our usual Friday Features with challenges so be sure to join us every Friday so you don't miss a thing!

 Now for that release....first up...
You'll love playing with these adorable images and uplifting are just a few sweet 'n sassy samples from our talented team...

 I LOVE Bridget's use of this set to create a bright and cheery scene.  She added even more interested with our fence die - the perfect touch!

Isn't this fun?  Jessica used all three images in the set to create this warm and sunny card.

I've got a thing for CAS cards anymore so here's another on featuring that cheery sunshine.  I added some beautiful shimmer with a Wink of Stella brush pen.  LOVE it!

Next up...
This set is so much fun!  You can use as few or as many of the images as you want to create backgrounds and so much more.  Here are a few fabulous samples from our talented team...

 How fun is this bubbly creation?  Bridget used only the solid images to create a fun birthday card.

Diane really got creative with the solid spots and made a flower!  How cool!  She used the leaves from another one of our new sets which we'll introduce shortly...

Check out our next stamp & die combo...
This combination of stamps & dies can be used alone or with many of the sets we already have in our line (I'm thinking of all those other BIRDS, aren't you?)  You'll love these adorable creations by our team...

 I went clean and simple with this fun card and added some clouds from the Happy Happy set.  You gotta love when the sets coordinate together! :)

Lee Ann created a beautiful baby congrats card with the nest, eggs and tree branch.  I love her added touch on the nest!  So clever!

Oh my goodness, is this card not the cutest thing ever?!  Bridget certainly outdid herself with this one.  From that totally adorable fence and clever sign she created (both using our Grunge Borders stamp set) to the precious flowers, grass using our die and sponged cloud background using our cloud dies...this card is just amazing and so full of personality!

Next up from Diane Zechman...
This set is so much fun to color, but it doesn't stop there.  Check out these wonderful creations by our team...

Bridget never ceases to amaze with her AMAZING coloring skills and her knack for CAS designs.  This card to screams HAPPY. :)  The sun from our new Happy Happy set is the perfect addition to this delightful card.

No time to color?  The large image in this set also looks great when you simply sponge a background.  I did add a bit more pizzazz to this card by creating my own stencil with our Borders & Blooms dies and then using some modeling paste to create some texture.  I then inked over it and stamped some more to create layers of "texture".  Some Stickles & bling finish it off.

Even embossed in white, this image is fabulous!  I love Jessica's use of vellum and the clever sunshine die cut behind the vellum & sentiment.  So cute!

Next up...
I was amazed to see how many different ways the team used this fantastic set of stamps & dies...check it out...

Diane created a cool faux tile panel for her card.  I love the softness of the monochromatic color.

Jessica's card is really cool with those layered flowers.  I'm not sure what she used to make them but I don't doubt she'll share with us on her blog soon!

Lee Ann created a fabulous 3D flower by cutting along the line and rolling is like a rosette.  How cool!!

Next up...
This die is hopefully going to be the first in a new series of word dies.  They add such a great touch of personalization to your cards and projects.  Check out these beauties from our talented team...

 Cathy has done it again with this beautiful tribute to Mother.  She paired the die with our new Thankful Blooms set and created a lovely card full of texture.

My mom loves blue, so I created this card for her.  I paired the Mother die with our new Thankful Blooms set, as well as, Delightfully Delicate Background & Borders & Backgrounds stamp & die sets.  There are so many ways to use this wonderful new die!

Jessica's card is awesome with all those dainty elements and her felt "mother".  The little house from Happy Home was the perfect touch!

Next up...
Our innies sets are very popular and what collection could be complete without a thank you innie?

Another fun card by Jessica showcasing a wonderful sentiment and paired with the Mother die & Sunshine & Flowers stamp set.

Bridget's soft colors are the perfect palette for this lovely heartfelt card.  Stamping the sentiment on vellum is a clever way to keep the soft theme throughout the whole design.

This one is a signature Monika card with all those fabulous elements and textures rolled into one amazing card.  In addition to the sentiment, she used our Grunge Elements, Pick Me Up, Typewriter Text Background and Majestic Monarchs sets.  What a great compilation!
What a fun set of stars & sentiments!  You can't go wrong with stars.  They works for so many occasions and the matching dies are the icing on the cake!

Diane did a great job showing how versatile these stamps & dies can be!  Those DP stars are a fabulous addition and create such interest for this fun encouragement card!

Jessica is at it again with her creative use of felt (LOVE IT!!).  I love everything about this card.  So fun and full of texture!

I went with a pretty CAS design so the stars could do all the talking.  There is something striking about white on white and I took it a step further with the white mat.
Diane's sweet little houses create the cutest scenes.  This set is useful for so many occasions even outside of the "new home" theme and those little trees are so adorable!

I cannot say enough about this precious scene Bridget created.  What a cheerful card to congratulate new home owners!

Jessica's signature doily is a dainty touch to this lovely creation.  She's so good at combining textures to create an eye-catching design and the colors are wonderful together!

How cute is this little circle card?  It's the perfect little homey scene and those paper pieced trees are such a fun touch!  What about that adorable little fence!  CUTE!!

Well, that's it for this time....although that was A LOT!

Great work Korin and DT, lovely and neat creations and so many fun products. I particularly loved the abstract flower stamps and dies, but everyone knows that I'm all about florals... I noticed many changes going on, but I can tell is all for the best. These days are for the wise, and you have made some wise decisions. Wish you all the best.
