Happy Monday! Welcome to the new LNS Challenge. For this challenge we would like you to use framelits and/or dies on your card, L/O, or 3D project. I used two sets of framelits with coordinating stamps for my challenge card:
I first stamped the fine 'splatters' from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set on the Naturals White CS, then embossed it with the Honeycomb EF. The flowers were stamped on So Saffron CS and highlighted with a blender pen.
How about more inspiration? Hop on over to the LNS Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT created. Want to play along? Our challenges last two weeks so you have until Sunday evening, February 9 to link your card, L/O, or 3D project. We look forward to see your creations. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday! Today's card was made with some of the Inspired by Stamping January Release products. If you haven't seen the new release yet, you are in for a treat. There are four new stamp sets, two new paper packs, and two kits!
Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the Creations by AR January Release and Blog Hop! Today we are showcasing the Lovely Cart template. With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I couldn't help but make a flower/candy cart!
I used a hot glue gun to attach the little flower pots to the posts. The flower pots inside the cart are slightly larger and are also secured with a bit of hot glue on the bottoms. The flowers were made with the Sizzix Daisy die and I added a Hershey Kiss to the top of each with removable glue dots. I put a punched flower and flower rhinestone in the center of the wheels.
How cute is this new template?!?!? There is also a bottom shelf for more goodies. The template comes in PDF, Silhouette, and SVG formats, with detailed pictures and instructions. It also comes with three different wheel options. There are so many ideas for filling this cart--candies, candles, chocolates, soaps, just to name a few. What will you put in yours when you make it? The second release this month is the XO Heart Card template:
The XO Heart Card template is available for individual purchase or you can receive it FREE when you purchase the Lovely Cart template (until January 28). You also have a chance to win the Lovely Cart template. Please visit and comment on each of the DT blogs and the CbyAR Facebook page. Comments will be accepted until Friday, January 24 @ 12:00 noon ET. The lucky template winner will be announced on Adela's blog and Facebook page on Saturday, January 25. Ready to be inspired by the rest of the AR girls? Click below and enjoy!
Please stop back later this week as I will be posting another version of the Lovely Cart. Happy hopping!

Happy Monday! Welcome to the first LNS Challenge of 2014. It's a new year, so let's start off by celebrating something new (wedding, baby, home, etc.).
To make the onesie, I started with a piece of CS cut 2 1/4 (W) x 2 3/4 (L). On each side, 1/2" down, I cut in 1/2". I then trimmed from the inside of the cuts to the bottom outer corners. A circle punch and scalloped circle punch were used for the neckline and leg openings. The polka dot layer was trimmed by hand to fit. I used a marker to ink just 'baby' from the 'sweet baby' sentiment (Itty Bitty Banners stamp set). Coastal Cabana is my favorite new color and I love the Fresh Prints DSP. The colors and prints are fresh and fun! How about some more inspiration on celebrating something new? Hop on over to the LNS Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT created. To participate in the challenge, create a card, L/O, or 3D project celebrating something new. You have until Sunday evening, January 26 to link to the challenge. Thanks for stopping by! Lisa Supplies used: Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, and Whisper White CS, Fresh Prints DSP, Coastal Cabana Ink, Doily, Pearls, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Round and Scalloped Round Punches, Bitty Banners Framelits, and Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set.
Is that feather with the ink blot not adorable?!?!? I am definitely going to have to get either a feather stamp or die now! Thank you for the lovely cards. They took 'center stage' on my Christmas card display rack. Thanks for stopping by! Lisa
