Hey there, crafty friends! It’s hard to believe it’s April, isn’t it!? April Fool’s Day has come and gone. Did you get spoofed this year? We pulled a little “prank” of our own so if you missed it on April 1st you can find it HERE. With the turn of the calendar comes another release of fabulous new products and I can hardly wait to share them with you! The design team and I have been busy crafting with florals, butterflies, and other signs of spring with the themes of Get Well and Mother’s Day. Plus, we can’t forget our soon-to-be graduates this time of year so we’ll be sharing ideas for grad themed decor, cards, gifts and more later on this week.

Here’s a look at a project I made using the Mini Bloomers 2 die set and the new In & Out – Get Well stamp set:
I cut out the Mini Bloomers from six different colors and then designed the flowers by adhering a variety of combinations together. The Mini Bloomers are just smaller versions of the regular Bloomers dies making them perfect for combining together to build beautiful bouquets. The regular size Bloomers are also great for creating a focal image on a card.
I used my Clarity Stencil Brush to add a light dusting of Salt Water Taffy ink behind the sentiment. I framed the sentiment with the Lattice Frame Cutting Plate and then arranged the flowers around the edges of the oval frame.
Here’s a look at the In & Out – Get Well stamp set that I used on this project in addition to the Mini Bloomers 2 set:
Designer Melody Rupple, shows how the Bloomers can be combined with the Mini Bloomers and our new Pitcher Vase shaker element to create a gorgeous get well bouquet:
Here’s a look at the Pitcher Vase and Quatrefoil Embossing Folder that she used on this soft, sweet card:
Continuing with the Get Well theme, we have several Little Bits appropriate for spreading cheer to friends and family who are under the weather. Here’s a look at an adorable card that designer Keia Shipp-Smith created featuring the ‘get well’ Little Bits with sentiments from the In & Out – Get Well set:
And here’s a closer look at the Little Bits that she used:
These Little Bits also work great with the Listen to your Heart stamp set to create a cute little Get Well matchbox like Jean Manis did. Fill with Tylenol and cough drops to make a gift that’s sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face!
