The Morning After…

By April 15, 2011The Day After

It's that time again for my traditional morning after post!  One of my favorite things to do the morning of release day is to peruse the designs the team created with the new products and they definitely did not disappoint this month, as always!

Betsy Veldman used Ad Sense to create this amazing & unique denim card.  The frame in the set paired with eyelets made the perfect designer "label".  Her stitching and tag detail are perfect and I can't neglect to mention the winged image from Postmarks that she added to the back pocket.  So amazing!

Danielle Flanders created this beautiful card that just embodies spring perfectly.  She used Flower Fusion #3 to create the leaves and flowers.  And I love the fun gingham accents paired with the tag she created with the Vineyard Impression Plate and Tag Sale #3 die.

Dawn McVey used Boy Basics: Rock On paired with accents from Grunge Me to create this fun card for her rock star brother.  I love her use of the Guide Lines cardstock and the torn edge detail at the left of the focal point.  Such a great masculine project.

Debbie Olson paired up Boy Basics: Frog Hop with elements from Grunge Me for this adorable project.  I love, love LOVE the way she added button accents to the distressed circles in the background.  The graduated color effect she achieved with the sentiment is spot on as well!

Erin Lincoln used the new Train Tracks set paired with this sentiment from Baby Button Bits to create a fun & festive baby card!  I loved the way she incorporated the Cloud dies as "smoke" coming from the engine. And the grassy hill she created in the background provides the perfect back drop!


Heather Nichols used Train Tracks as well and went a little vintage.  The train was stamped onto Postmarks patterned paper and set off by the black background.  The sentiment strip she created is just the perfect finishing touch!

Jessica Witty was so clever with her application Tag-its #3.  Embracing the sunshine sentiment in the set, she used the leafy frame to create a modern interpretation of the sun.  The colorful cardstock stripes she added to the background really enforce the theme!  And I love the paper piercing detail she added as well!

Lisa Johnson created this stunning birthday card using Boy Basics: Simple Circles and sentiments from Ad Sense.  I adore the color scheme and can hardly wait to try it out myself.  The addition of the "5" from the By the Numbers die collection.

Maile Belles used Ad Sense paired with Boy Basics: Simple Circles and the coordinating border die to create this eye candy.  I love the unique look of the project overall and how she applied sentiments & design elements over each of the circles.  It's perfectly balanced and perfectly executed.

Melissa Phillips brought Tag-its #3 to life with her sweet little project. I love the tiny daisies she added along the bottom of the Eyelet Lace  border die and the red centers she added to them.  Pairing the leafy frame up with Love Lives Here made pure magic as well.

Michelle Wooderson created these beautiful projects with Flower Fusion #3 and Think Big Favorites #3.  I love how bold the red sentiments are on the pink and yellow background elements.  And the way she used the pinked-edged square die from the Button Card Die Collection to mat the flowers at the top is just perfection.

I hope you enjoyed getting a peek at my "favorites" today and perhaps you've been inspired to go create something fabulous!  Thank you so much for stopping by and happy release day!
