As with each new release, everything we're releasing is available in our store for purchase today. And while I am going to show you every new product here that's being released today I'll only share projects only for the two products we're showcasing today and oh, my GOSH! This first die is one that I think every crafter should have in their arsenal. It is Ah-MAZING!!!
I'm going to get right to it!!!
Introducing our brand new Cover Up Die: Pieced Chevron!!!!!
Several, several months ago I had this idea to create a die that cut pieced or halved chevrons so that the pieces could be mixed and matched and used to make different patterns etc... I'm not sure why this idea fell to the wayside for a bit but I'm almost glad it did because I finally came up with the perfect design for this concept- one that gives you so many versatile uses it's crazy!
Our new Cover Up Die is just slightly smaller than standard A2 size which I really love because when this die cut is used as a frame or over a card front it allows your card base to peek out just behind it and it makes for a fantastically patterned mat. And then there's a million things you can do with all the pieces this die cuts as well and if you look at the graphic above you'll notice that you cut large pieced chevrons, diamonds and two different sizes of triangles!
This die truly makes me squeal and I think you'll squeal too! I bet our designers have thought of even more uses for this die that I haven't even dreamed of yet. I'm sure we'll see more of that as we hop today!
Here are some projects I made using our brand new Cover Up Die: Pieced Chevrons...
Here, I die cut the Pieced Chevrons Die from white card stock. I was sure to save ALL my die cut pieces for use with other projects and I laid the frame over this gorgeous yellow card base. Here you see a couple of sentiments from a set we're also releasing today - more on that in a min. I lurve this card and it was so incredibly simple to create!
This card was super duper easy to make too! Here I've shown you how the pieced chevrons can be used together to make this fabulous and colorful pattern! What's neat about this card is that I used scraps from five different colors of card stock but I only had to make one cut with my die because of the way I arranged my papers and die in my die cutting machine!
While, I am seriously in love with everything we're releasing this week this die might just be my favorite! I feel like it steals the show! You are going to LOVE playing with this die!
Ok, so since you've seen some of our new stamps in the samples above, I think I will introduce this set next. Drum roll......
Introducing our Spot On Stamp Set!
Here's a couple of fun facts about this stamp set.
1. It's awesome! The patterns and fonts are so on trend they make me drool - fact!
2. This stamp set was designed specifically to coordinate with our previously released Connected Circles Die! That's right! These stamps fit perfectly into the circles of this die!
3. This is the same font we used in our Darling Diamonds Stamp Set. Our designers and customers raved about this font so much so we gave you more! ....which means....
5. This set also coordinates with our Darling Diamonds Stamp Set!
6. You'll notice that each of the trendy text circles in the set has a coordinating over sized sentiment to go with it.
7. This set is incredibly yummy :) Click on the graphic above to enlarge it so you can see the amazing detail of all of the trendy patterns.
I love that this set breathes a whole new life into our previously released Connected Circles Die and I love too that this set can easily be used on its own to create gorgeous cards.
Ready for more? It even gets better if you can believe it!
Squeeee!!! These are soooo much fun to work with!! These dies each cut a full size tag which folds along the perforated line so it's like a card and a tag at the same time! The front and inside can be embellished and a gift card fits perfectly in each! The Original has a straight edge fold "flap" that folds closed and the Scallops, a scalloped edge "flap".
I've been wanting to create tag dies for you for so long but I really wanted to do something different and unique that our crafty little world hadn't seen yet and I think we've accomplished that with our Folding Tags Dies! They make a perfect lil' sumthin' to tie onto a gift or a baked good....anything you can dream up :)
For samples using these dies you can visit the store HERE and HERE where we've loaded up some examples for you. You'll instantly fall in love!
I am apparently obsessed with breathing new life into scallops because here is a new take on a scalloped border die. I call it....
Seriously, this is an unbelievably gorgeous, gorgeous die! It can be used a couple of different ways... you can remove all of the small cuts inside for an open look or they can all be kept in place for a totally different look. My favorite thing about this die is how two or more fit together perfectly for a beautiful layered look! You've GOT to see this die in action. To see projects made using this die you can head over to the store to see some samples HERE. A must see for sure!!!!
Ok, one more for you today....hold onto your seats.....my head almost rocketed off my shoulders when I used this for the first time! Another drum roll.......
Introducing Stitched Mats: Circles.....BUT WITH A NEW TWIST!!!! Check it out....
YES, this die set cuts the stitched circles you've been waiting so patiently for, but I really wanted to do something unique here. We have added our signature stitched detail to BOTH sides of the main, solid cutting line. What does this mean? Not only do you cut gorgeous stitched circles in many sizes but you are left with a negative cut that also has stitching around it!! Mind? BLOWN! Yes, these are that awesome! Check out how I used the stitched negative in the project below...
Well, what do you think? This is an amazing bunch of new goodies, right?
