i-Crafter April Release Hop

Hello i-crafter fans! Today is an exciting day because we are releasing new never before seen products and you are going to LOVE them! Here is a list of the new products with links:

I have 2 projects for you today using the new products.

The first project is a calendar frame and I've decorated it using the 
Rose Heart and the Alphabet, Carly dies.

You would be surprised how difficult it is to get a good picture without a glare when you're photographing a lucite frame.  I had to take my project outside to avoid the glare in the house. That is why my frame is sitting in the grass. Here are 2 more views from the side so you can see the frame it is in.

The i-crafter products are so versatile and can be used for so many projects like home decor, gift giving and anything you'd like to decorate! I took some musical patterned paper and inked the edges with brown ink.  I printed out a blank April 2020 calendar from the internet and labeled it with the 
Alphabet, Carly dies cut from gold foil cardstock.  I added the beautiful Rose Heart die to the top of the paper after I water colored it.  I cut the outline out of gold foil paper and watercolored the inside of the petals with my Zig markers.  I did the same technique with the leaves. Once the calendar and rose accent were adhered I slipped my project into an 8x10 lucite frame so I could sit it up on my desk. I just love how this came out and it is a beautiful piece of decor to keep on my desk to show me April at a glance.

For my second release project I made a beautiful thank you card using the new Doily die. This die is very large and intricate and cuts out absolutely beautifully! 

I decided to do some ink blending on some smooth paper with Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide inks and then cut the Doily out from the inked panel. I backed the Doily with some vellum paper to give it a more soft look.  For the base of my card I used a pretty teal paper that I dry embossed with a tiny polka dot embossing folder.  I just love the texture it gives to any card.  I die cut the word THANKS out of some teal glitter paper using the Alphabet, Carly dies and adhered them to the middle of the doily.  To finish off my card and give it some shine, I added some flat backed clear jewels around the doily and the top and bottom corners of the card.

Make sure you hop around to all of the other design team member's blogs to see what they have created for you using the new products from the April release!
