Lauren Taylor

i absolutely LOVE the softness of the coloring!! and look how snuggly and happy those little sushi are!! ha ha!! this really makes the let's roll stamp set shine! and i LOVE the milo's abc's sentiment too!! this is CAS cool!

and speaking of custom sentiments... 

this card made me smile so big when i first saw it!! i LOOOOOVE the two polaroids! and the scene captured with yeti set go, and hello sunshine! and the colors (and coloring!!) is fantastic!! i am totally inspired to get inky!

and keeping with the fun, custom sentiment theme, this card is perfect!

i LOVE that little platypus from critters down under!! and i don't know what is more unique than a platypus!! see? totally perfect! and i love how the sentiment and platypus really standout on the card!

i LOVE all of the pastel colors and the playful bunnies really bring life to the card! the custom cloud background is amazing, too!! wow!! and look at all that fussy cutting!! yes, this card totally has me ready to dye some eggs, eat some candy and get crafty!!  the happy easter set has never been so happy!!

lastly, but certainly NOT least!, we have another Easter card! 

i really love all of the patterned papers!! and the white chocolate and chocolate bunny hopping around cracks me up! i don't know the story here, but when i saw the card, i first thought of chocolate bunnies running away from being eaten!! lol!! the oval scene captuers the bunnies from happy easter so perfectly! and i LOVE that felt flower accent!

Happy Easter Card


It's Tracy here with some Easter card inspiration for you!  I did have a video to go with this card, but sadly my computer is not allowing me to edit it :(  I used the Happy Easter set from Lawn Fawn.

I heat embossed the flowers with white embossing powder and colored them in with Twinkling H2O's.  After finishing my card, I realized that I shouldn't have used white embossing powder and should have used green instead.  The cloud die cuts are from Memory Box and I placed vellum behind the open clouds.

I colored the bunny in with Copics and used a Fiskar's border punch for the grass.  I also used a Wink Of Stella Glitter pen on the white cloud.

Have a great day!

Neon Dinos

Hi everyone! It's Taylor here today, using a few of my favorite new products! I really love this Critters from the Past set from Lawn Fawn, and thought it would be fun to use them with my FAV new Radiant Neon inks from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko!

I stamped the dinos in different colors and then punched them out with circle punches. A little bit of twine and some fab corrugated paper and this one was done!

Hope your Monday is wonderful - thanks for stopping by!

Design Team UPDATE

Hi everyone! Laurel here with a quick DT update!!!! I'll get right to it.  The fabulous Elena will be leaving us. I know, I know..... While I am sad about her leaving, I will continue to stalk her on her blog, Facebook and every other social media outlet! She is an amazing designer and I am so happy she was with us for so long.

BUT with sad news, comes good news!!! Samantha Mann from our Facebook Inspiration team will be joining us on the design team starting with our very next challenge! Notice her pic on the sidebar? he he he. We also welcomed Taylor from the Facebook Inspiration team last month....

Speaking of.....  Our Facebook Inspiration team posts daily to our Facebook page! They are an amazing group of designers and I am so lucky to have them. They also will be doing a monthly blog hop on the last Friday of each month in addition to the special posts they post right here to the blog during the week!

I truly am blessed to have such an amazing group of designers on both teams... And I am blessed by YOU! We get some much participation and it just makes my heart happy to know I'm doing something right with this challenge! :) It helps to have great sponsors like Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp. And of course, it's great to have great products to work with.

Be sure to check out our current challenge.... We are encouraging you all to TRY A NEW TECHNIQUE! So fun!
