Let's get right to it! This week will be a combined hop with both of our fabulous teams. Today we're showcasing these new goodies: BALLOON DIES!
We've created this set to have different balloon shapes, sizes, with stitching (of course, hee) AND two 'star overlays'. These dies can be used by themselves or with the coordinating die in the set. They layer on top of their matching die! This way different colors can be used, different patterns can be mixed and matched...loads of possibilities! These are so cute and fabulous ...I can't contain myself...I'm not even kidding!!
Next up is Party Hat Dies!
This is a wired set of 7 featuring a plain hat, stitched hat, star and polka dot overlays as well as hat embellishments; hat topper, scalloped trim and fringe trim. These embellishments really bring these hats to life!
Nothing makes a die set more fun to work with than a coordinating stamp set! Introducing the You're Invited Stamp Set!
What's neat about this set is that the invitation stamps will fit PERFECTLY inside the center of our Texture Plate: Frame 1! THAT, my friends, was the brilliant idea of Karen Baker who designed this entire set based on some of my ideas and suggestions, but fitting the sentiments inside the frame is ALL Karen and WAIT until you see how it looks. I have a project tomorrow showing you just that!
I seriously LOVE this set!! I love the classic fonts combined with the boldness of some of the sentiments in the sets and of course there are special saying to specifically coordinate with the Balloons and Party Hats Dies!! This is GREATNESS!!!
We couldn't ignore our upcoming Fall Holidays especially when we can bring you such cuteness!!! Here is Thanksgiving Wishes from The Sugar Kissed Cottage!
Our adorable focal image is from Lindsey Amschler of Sugar Kissed Cottage and our amazing fonts and sentiments are the work of our newest graphics designer, Karen Baker!
Next up is Ghostie Witch from 2 Cute Ink!
If this image and sentiment combo doesn't grab you....I don't know what will! LOL!!
Okay.......would you like to see some of the projects I've made to share with you today using these fantastic new goodies???? I happen to have been browsing at TJ Max and found these great cupcake treat boxes for $1 so I decided to embellish it and make a coordinating card! Of course I had to buy a cupcake for the "photo shoot". Have a look....
This was super easy! And wouldn't this be cute for someone on their special day? I used four balloons here if you include the overlay. Oh the star overlay totally makes this set of dies! I added some twine which I wrapped around our double ended banner die from our Flags and Tags set which I then stamped with a sentiment from our new You're Invited stamp set!
Here is a picture of the coordinating card I made...super simple, but really cute I think! More AWESOME balloons - seriously they are ALL the most perfect size for any project!! They make me squeal I love them so much! The funny thing about these pictures is that if you panned out on each one this is what you would have seen!!!........
Yup, that's my little guy! He was literally stalking me while I took some pictures as he should be at 4.5 with a cupcake lurking!! I just thought this was so funny!I had to share it with you. He was very patient too! Look at those eyes right on dessert! Funny!!
Next up is a card I made using this AWESOME new Thanksgiving Wishes set from The Sugar Kissed Cottage!! Click on a close up of this image. The little man is licking his lips for that plate of food...MUCH like my little man was for his cupcake!! HA!!
I love how this came together! I colored my image with Copics, cut it out and paired it with 2 sentiments from the set which I think work nicely together. There's also a little sneaky peek there of something else to come this week....but there's MORE than meets the eye!!!
OH, these goodies are all so fabulous and FUN to work with. I will say that I am limited on the quantity of Balloon Dies I have on hand so if you love them go get them! You will have a couple of different purchase options with the dies and stamps.. You can buy the entire collection of Balloon Dies, Party Hats Dies and You're Invited Stamps, or you can purchase your favorite pieces individually. I anticipate ALL these to go fast!
