Be sure to start back at the LID Blog for all the release details and lots of pretty eye candy. Woohoo!!

I was over the moon excited to see Laura add this stamp set, Rustic Spring. You all loved the Rustic Christmas set and we know how much you will love this Rustic Spring set. The bunny is adorable and I masked him off with and stamped some flowers behind him. There are Rustic Spring dies that coordinate with the stamps and I love that. It gives you lots of options for creating. I framed it up with the Insta Camera die



Now I know you can't stop looking at the gorgeous background. Yep, it's a new release product and it's the coolest cover plate called, Quilted Stitched So Sunny die. I also added one of the new word dies from the Brushed Script Spring Word dies. You know I love my word dies. Here is a close up of the details of my card.

Crazy 4 Challenges-Super Day

I hope you are having a great weekend so far. It's Saturday and I am back with the Crazy 4 Challenges crew and another great challenge for you. It's sketch week, and Tammy has created a great layout to work with. I used some Lil' Inker Designs products today. This little super hero is too cute! He is from the Super Kids Stamp set, it is one of my favorites. 


I used the cool graphic clouds from Cut it Out Clouds & Accessories. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of black card stock, white embossed it and then snipped the little flag at the end. Here is a closer look. I finished it all off on a vellum rectangle cut with the Silly Stitched Die set


Here is the sketch. 


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!

Curtain Call -Warm My Heart



It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!



Come play along, The LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!



I was inspired to use the Reverse Confetti Smitten Mitten stamp set. Yes, I know Valentine's Day is over, but you can spread love all year long. Those sweet woven, woolen mittens are sure to warm anyone's heart.  I used some Piggy Bank ink (my new favorite pink) to stencil on the hearts with the Hearts Stencil. I layered it all over a vellum Lacy Scallop Circle and accented with a trio of Cloud White All Hearts Cover Plate. I tied in a little bit of the green with some Honeydew Twine. Love it. 


Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

No shocker, I used Reverse Confetti. It has been awhile since this set has seen some ink. I love these butterflies and I needed some thank-you notes. I inked up the largest image from Butterfly Dreams with RC Aqua ink. I cut a second butterfly with Pistachio Pudding card stock and the coordinating Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts and layered them up with a foam dot.  I used the Lacy Scallop Circle and created a frame with some Hot Fudge card stock. I splattered  on some gold ink and tied on a bit of gold twine, too. 

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started.

I know, I  know. I am totally late with this. The move has really put a halt on my crafty time, go figure. lol! I missed the posting date last Wednesday for this week's Color Throwdown challenge, but I did find sometime Thursday afternoon to make this card for my middle son's birthday. He turned 13 yesterday!! I used a handful of Reverse Confetti products today. I stenciled on the sweet tiny chevrons with Tangerine ink and Pointed out Stencil

I used the Seeing Stars and Oh my Stars confetti cuts in black to add the fun star accents for the birthday boy. The sentiment is from Celebrations
