MTME April Release Day!

This is post 1/2 for today! If you are looking for my Play Date Cafe post (with an all new challenge), please scroll down...

Hello! Today is the day that the My Time Made Easy © April products are officially released! The past few days, the design team previewed three new templates. Today all of us all showing you some card projects! With so many products being released, I wanted to show you a little of everything, so here goes...

I used one of Kristin's new digi papers, Fun Flowers - Ganache (part of the Fun Flowers © paper collection) and used sentiments from Just For You © on both the inside and outside (see below for simply finished inside). I kept the rest fairly simple since I didn't want to cover up the pretty paper. I finished it off with some stitching (which I did on all of today's cards), silk ribbon and some embellishments.

For my next creation, I made my own background paper by stamping the medium flower from Petal Perfection © in black ink onto cream cardstock. I decided to add a pop of red, so I stamped and colored one petal with Copic markers and my Lipstick Spica glitter pen, cut it out and popped it onto one of the flowers. I added tiny red pearls in the center of the flowers as well. The sentiment "With Love" is from So Sentimental ©.

Next up is a fun cupcake card. The patterned papers are Cutesy Cupcakes from the new Just Perfect © paper collection and Fresh Fabric - Indian Summer from the Fresh Fabric © - Collection 3. I paired them with Indian Summer and Sea Foam cardstocks provided by Couture Cardstock. I stamped the cupcakes image (from Just For Me ©) three times, colored with Copics and cut into an oval.

For my final card for today, I used one of my favorite sentiments from Just For You ©. It says "Someone like you should be celebrated every day!" I made my trio of layered flowers by using one of the new cut files, Petal Perfection ©, which coordinates with the stamp set of the same name. I used my Cricut to cut several layers out of mulberry.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the MTME team today as they are also showing off some of their card creations... you definitely won't want to miss any of it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
