Sentiments Challenge and Final Preview Day!!!!!

Welcome to our final preview day!!!!!  We're combining it with our usual Saturday challenge today so you'll get lots of eye candy for the new releases.

Today we're featuring the Getaway Car and Bride and Groom images as well as the Just Married and Lots of Thanks Add-on sets. The full sets with a blog hop will be starting at 6am EST on April 15th at the "Shannon's Sentiments" blog. We will also be hosting a chat at our CDAC group page at 8pm EST on the 15th as well.

Cindy is hosting the challenge this week and has challenged us to create a card featuring 3 flowers and no patterned papers.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to create for this challenge....since in my head I was going to go in a totally different direction with these sets.  I opted to use the "Just Married" set and create a thank you card.  I changed the color of the dress outline to green before printing it along with the wording.  I then added 3 tiny white flowers to the waist of the dress.


Check out what the other members of our team have created with these images.

Release Day #2!!!!

It's finally time for the "Shannon's Sentiments" May release!!!  This month we are releasing 4 large individual images along with 4 Add-On sets, and 2 full sets.

Today we're featuring the Calla Frame and Spring Door images along with the In Sympathy and Friendship Add-On sets.. The full sets with a blog hop will be starting at 6am EST on May 15th at the "Shannon's Sentiments" blog. We will also be hosting a chat at our CDAC group page at 8pm EST on the 15th as well.

I created this soothing card using images from the Friendship set.  I printed off a 2nd rose and popped it up on top of the one on the oval panel.  I colored the rose with Prismacolor Pencils and added some Diamond Stickles for sparkle.

May Release Day #1!!!!!

It's finally time for the "Shannon's Sentiments" May release!!!  This month we'll be releasing 4 large individual images along with 4 Add-On sets, and 2 full sets.

Today we're starting out featuring the Puppy Love and Independence Day sets. The full sets with a blog hop will be starting at 6am EST on May 15th at the "Shannon's Sentiments" blog. We will also be hosting a chat at our CDAC group page at 8pm EST on the 15th as well.

I created this fun card using the new Independence Day set.  I love this set since it's so easy to interchange all the images.  I colored the flag heart with Copics and paired it with some textured and patterned papers.  I added some Antique Linen distress ink around the image panel edges.  Then punched holes on the side and tied on some blue ribbon.  For some sparkle I added Moonlight Smooch to the stars.

Check out what some of our other design team members have created using these images.

Introducing a special release!!!!

Over at SplitCoastStampers they host a monthly thread entitled Cards for a Cause.  Our very own Design Team member Michelle is hosting this month's charity.  She's choosen the Landstuhl Medical Facility in Landstuhl, Germany. While Walter Reed gets most of the attention, it is Landstuhl that houses our most critically wounded servicemen and women.

In honor of her hosting this month, I've created a special release Get Well Set.  $1 from the sale of each set will be donated to the USO, as they also support our troops here and abroad.
