February New Release Hop Day 1

WOOO HOOOOO!!!!! It's HERE!!!!!! Happy day 1 of our new release hop!



We have some awesome new goodies for you! Are you ready?? Let's get right to it!


FINALLY! A set of stitched tags from LID!!!! Woo hoo!!!! Our brand new Anytime Tags are awesome! This is a set of four tags and four separate hang hole dies. We did the hang holes separately so that you can use these not only just as tags but also as sentiment panels! You know we love options! You'll receive two different shapes of hang hole dies as well; ovals and circles. The smaller sized dies are used for the smaller tags. These holes can be reinforced using the die cut pieces from the larger hang hole dies. The larger ones are the hang holes for the larger tags. 


The next in our series of similar dies, our Cloudy Sky die is the perfect and easiest way to create a "sky" full of clouds with just one pass through your die cutting machine. You can also use the negative pieces for other projects. Some of the larger clouds are even stitched and coordinate perfectly with the clouds in our Rainbows & Clouds Die Set. This is definitely a fun and useful little die! And because of the way it's designed it can be used across the 4.25" width of an A2 card base or on the longer 5.5" side. We love that we thought of that option for you! :)


Oh. BOY is this die FUN! This is our brand new Give a Hoot Gift Card Holder Die. His little wings open up to reveal the gift card hidden inside! You can add a glue dot to hold your gift card in place but that's totally optional because your card will fit securely under the owl's beak. You can also dress this little guy up with a little twine or ribbon through his wings to keep your gift closed and of course we've included some additional pieces to create his expressive eyes. What I love about this die is that it can be cut from one small sheet of paper and needs only minimal assembly. Of course he's stitched for added fun and detail!



I needed to make a few anniversary cards not that long ago and I realized that we needed a stamp set here at LID for this occasion! I came up with this oversized Happy Anniversary sentiment stamp and smaller supporting sentiments which are cute and even funny and perfect for the love of your life, your parents or even a favorite couple. The best part about this set is not only this casual and fun font but the super cute stick figure couples! WAIT until you stamp with this set. You're going to LOVE it and I bet you'll be wanting more of these little figures in other sets! Just you wait! :)



Stay Beautiful (which I've enlarged so that you can read all the detail included in this set) is meant to encourage and inspire. It's the perfect stamp set for those "i don't know what to say" moments like if someone is going through a difficult time or even if someone just needs a cheerful reminder that they're loved. I love this set and I even found that it worked well for sympathy cards too. I think it's a great addition to your collection of stamps because sometimes you need more than just words.



YESSSSSSSS!!!! FINALLY!!! Here is a set of four heart dies featuring LID's EXCLUSIVE Dual Stitching Detail!! I can hear you cheering :)   These dies are phenoms and are designed specifically to coordinate with the heart shapes featured in our Floating Hearts Die. I happen to this this heart shape is uber modern and trendy. I may, however, be a tad biased, LOL! But either way you'll love them! I think these ones are going to go FAST!

What do you think? Some great goodies here, right?

How about some projects? I just had to share this with you today so you can see how awesome our new Give A Hoot Gift Card Holder is! 


Here he is all finished and tied up. I cut his body from sand colored card stock and stamped him with a diamond from our Darling Diamonds Stamp Set. I then cut out his eye pieces from white and yellow card stock and assembled them as shown and completed them with a little stamping instead of just strictly paper. I added his beak in a pumpkin colored card stock also for a little added something and tied him up with purple baker's twine.


See how the card fits neatly under his beak and under the other little flap below? It's a pretty snug fit too although you can add a glue dot to secure your card in place. Right behind where the card sits it a strip of paper not cut away by the die and it can be added there although I've found I've not had to do this.  I had the idea for this die I was trying to think of a completely creative and new way to give a gift card that could be cut from one sheet of paper and only required limited assembly and there is where I ended up! I looooove this trendy little guy! I think you will LOVE using this die to dress up all of your gift cards!


Here I used our new Anytime Tags to cut away a window for a sentiment from our new Stay Beautiful set. I added the stitched detail to my card base with my Stitched Mats: Rectangles and the front is stamped with a funky scallop stamp from our Mom & Dad Sentiments Stamp Set. I heat embossed my sentiment on vellum and added it behind my window. I stamped a heat and added a little rhinestone for a little something extra. Of course I included this  cute little boxing gloves stamp which I colored with Copics, fussy cut and added to my font.

Ok, so since it's day one I'd like to share one more card with you before I send you on your way.


This card features the largest heart from our new Stitched Hearts Die Set but it's created also using our Cover Up Die: Pieced Chevrons. I cut different colors of chevrons and assembled them and then cut the whole thing with my heart die. The sentiment is from our Modern Mehndi set.

Ok, so FUN RELEASE, right?!

Before I send you along, we will be giving away three $15 store credits as prizes from this release! Be sure and leave some comments along the way! We'll be picking one of our DT's blogs as the secret prize blog from which we pick our winners. If you comment on that designer's blog you're chances of winning will skyrocket!!!!!!!

  2. Fun new release! I'm so happy you have added to your line of stitched dies. They're awesome. Especially the tags with options to choose your own holes. The owl gift card holder is so unique and original! I just have to thank you for the Stay Beautiful stamp set. So many times I need a sentiment that doesn't just say "I'm Sorry" or "Get Well". These show compassion in such a wonderful way. My shopping cart is going to be FULL!

  23. Wonderful new release! IDEA!!! I love the owl die! I think it would be so cute for baby cards if there was a baby owl to go with it that the Mommy Owl could be holding in her arms. A gift card to Babies R Us and the gift would be complete! :) Just a thought! :) Thanks for all of the lovely things you create for all of us to play with!
