New Release Hop Day 4: Stitched Mats & Carving Pumpkins!

Hi there and welcome to day four of our new release hop! Today we have more projects featuring our new Stitched Mats Dies as well as more goodness featuring our Carving Pumpkins and Best Witches sets from The Sugar Kissed Cottage!

Are you just joining us this week? We've released a lot of fun things and you can click HERE to see everything new!

Aren't you just smitten with our new Stitched Mats Dies??


These dies are fantastic and there really is more here than meets the eye!  This is a product that every paper crafter should have!! The largest die in this nested set of 6 was designed specifically to cut a stitched border around the edge of an A2 (4.25 x 5.5 in.) card base. It's the most amazing effect!

Each of the other smaller dies in this set cut perfect rectangles also with stitched borders. These are perfect for layering papers, matting focal images, make fun sentiment panels or even adorable tags!
You will absolutely fall in love with being able to use this product for so many different things but especially for making that gorgeous border around your card base!

There really is so much you can do with these dies. I have YET to try my hand at using one as a fun tag but I NEED to try that soon! I'm still stuck on being able to cut a perforated border around the edge of my card base....I squeal every time I use this!

Don't forget that I've created my favorite *sandwich* for using the largest die in the set and it uses our Embossing Pad Kit. It really does keep the edges of the dies from embossing in your card stock so you truly ONLY see the stitched detail! Here is my favorite sandwich for both Sizzix and Cuttlebug users:

Also today, we have more projects from The Sugar Kissed Cottage and today I'm featuring our new Carving Pumpkins set.


This is an adorable little image that was super fun to color and I just LOVE the sentiments in this set! I created a project featuring both our Carving Pumpkins set and our Stitched Mats Dies.....have a look!


I started by cutting and scoring my card base from yellow card stock. Then you simply lay the largest die in the Stitched Mats Set over your card base, it lines up perfectly so there's no guess work, use your favorite cutting machine and sandwich and ta-daaaaa...pure awesomeness! It's such a simple thing but it has such wow factor I think!

Then, I colored this totally adorable image and paired it with my favorite sentiment from this set, some sweet orange ribbon and coordinating polka dot papers. I love how this came out!! I hope you do too!

I feel like my posts this week have been like novels so I'm going to keep this one short and sweet today and remind you to leave comments along your way as we have 2 secret prize blogs this week!

Lindsey Amschler is our next stop on our hop today. Not only is she the designer at The Sugar Kissed Cottage but she's a pretty rockin' card maker as well and I just know she'll have something wonderful for you today!!

Everything we've released this week is loaded into our store with sample projects, and product descriptions so you can head there to see everything this release has to offer.

Tomorrow is our group hop day....it's sort of an anything goes BUT we'll be featuring a very special Bonus Goodie item which is available at a reduced price for a limited time! Sa-weet! We'll see you then.

We had a little informal hop last week and we'll be announcing the winners SOON!

Thanks for stopping by!
