June Release Hop Day 3!

Welcome welcome to our third and final day of our June Release Hop! It's been a fun and busy week! Thank you again for all of your awesome feedback on our new products!

Today, I'm going to recap the products we released this week by sharing their product graphics. If you would like to read about all the details of our new goodies please head back and read my Day 1 and/or Day 2 posts. You could also head to our STORE to read all about these goodies and their exciting features.

Here is everything we released this week and man oh MAN am I having fun with these products!!












Aren't these so fun! I really don't think there is anything in this release that you could go wrong with. The puzzle goodies are adorbs. The Unscramble Stamps are super unique and combined with the Peek-a-Boo Die they make for fun card giving! Thumbs Up is trendy and fun and silly and I LOVE IT! The Scattered Sequins Die is not only trendy but clever in its design giving you more bang for your buck and the new word dies are simply AHHHH-Mazing!!!!

Here are a few new projects for you today :)



For my thanks card, I started with cold press watercolor paper, an aqua-painter and watercolor pencils. I scribbled with my pencils and then blended them with my aqua-painter. Once everything was dry, I added my thanks die which I believe I cut here four times and stacked together so that it really jumps off the page. I also added gold paper sequins cut using my Scattered Sequins Die. Everything is adhered to a cherry red card base. By the way, I'm using this amazing new glue pen and I have to share it with you. It's an X-Press It Glue Marker. I received it as part of my World Card Making Day Prize Package and it is THE BEST glue pen I've ever used and I think I've tried them ALL! It worked magic on our new Word Dies especially in the project above and stacking the dies. This is also going to be the perfect adhesive for our Cover Up Dies because you can dot in on in all those little teeny spaces. Here is a link to this item at Ellen Hutson .



This card is sort of neat because it gives you a great look at what the negative feature of the Scattered Sequins Die can do. I just love love love that we added the stitching around the sequins so that you have this cool stitched polka dot effect! On the bottom half of my card I added purple vellum which is just so soft and pretty and a nice contrast to my grape satin ribbon. I of course added my big, bold hello die cut for my greeting.



Here I started with a stone base and die cut the stitched border using the largest die in my Stitched Mats: Rectangles. I added the white panel and adhered three different smile die cuts done in this fresh colors which I am LOVING!! I added in a little bling and a little ribbon and called it done. I think that might be why I'm loving these perfectly oversized word dies - there isn't much left to do because they beautifully take center stage.

Here is a list of the designers participating in today's hop.
