New Release Hop Day 1

Hi there, Lil' Inker Friends!! I am so super pumped to be here with you today for this new release!



These are some of the best goodies we've ever made for you because of their mix and match and building capabilities!!! We've got a great selection of Halloween items and I love that they build on previously released goodies that you love. It really helps to stretch the supplies you already have!

Before we get right to it, I did something a little different this time and I've created a video showing you an in depth look at all the stamps and dies included in this release plus an exclusive look at some new stamps arriving later this Fall!

This chick can talk, LOL! So grab a cuppa coffee and get cozy! No, seriously!




If you prefer to read on about all these new goodies and what they can do, let's get right to it!!!

First up is our new Seen On Halloween Stamp Set. It contains silhouette images of Halloween icons which contain these lovely, hand drawn sentiments inside and they are the perfect greetings for your Halloween cards, projects and party invitations!

You might see some familiar images here and you'd be right! The ghost image will stamp perfectly on the largest die in our previously released Stitched Ghosts Die Set and the witch will stamp perfectly on our previously released Bats & Broomsticks Die Set. We did this because we love the idea of being able to breathe new life into and stretch the goodies you already have.

This set also contains brand new images as well like the kitty, witch hat, and the AWESOME pumpkins! Additional elements included in the set will help you to adorn the pumpkins but there are also some mini sentiments that can be used in lots of ways which we think you'll enjoy.

This stamp set REALLY comes to life when used with those previously released dies but also when used with our brand new coordinating Seen On Halloween Dies!




This is a GREAT set when paired with the coordinating Seen On Halloween Stamps but can totally be used completely on its own! You'll see that it includes a black cat image and also witch hat that has negative stitching design (will cut the stitched line around the cut away of the die), but it's the pumpkins that totally make this set!!!! The pumpkins cut the most perfect shapes and they contain negative stitching but also have these coordinating, separate dies that can nest inside the dies during cutting and will cut vertical lines into your pumpkins adding texture. We've also included pumpkin stem dies and a leaf die which you will love working with. These items are my favorite from this release.


Our brand new Pumpkin Faces Die Set is very versatile and FUN! Use these faces together with the pumpkins and even some of the other dies in our Seen On Halloween Die Set. These can be used with our previously released Stitched Ghosts Dies, Ghost Border Die Set and can be really fun and spooky all on their own!


Our new Boo & Faces 2 Stamps are a new take on a favorite Halloween set from last year. This stamp set contains a ton of faces stamps that you will LOVE using with the pumpkins in our Seen On Halloween Die Set and will work as well with our Stitched Ghosts Dies, Ghost Border Die and even our Connected Circles Die Set. The set contains a couple of fun and buildable sentiments as well which are in a fun and sleek font. This is a great set to really extend the uses of some of the dies we already have as well as our new dies.


Our new Here for the Boos Stamp Set is a fun one especially for party invites but so much more! We just loved that Boos and Booze sound the same and we capitalized on that with this stamp set. Use this for traditional Halloween greeting cards by saying "Happy Halloween" or create the most perfect Halloween Party invites with these buildable and funny greetings. Pair this with a Stitched Ghost Die and the greeting "Join us for" (leaving off the "a" when inking) and the Boos & Booze sentiment and you have a fun and punny greeting!


Our new Boo Word Die is just simply a must have. It's perfectly oversized and can be used on any Halloween card you can dream up. It coordinates with our Seen on Halloween Dies but also with our Boo & Faces 2 Stamps. I think you'll love having this in your collection.


Here is the second edition in our Wrappers Delight category. This is our Lattice Die and it's really lovely! I decided to include it with this released because I thought it was actually a perfect backdrop for our pumpkins and So Thankful Stamps! We call this "Wrappers Delight" because this die will literally wrap around your card front depending on how you orientate it. If used vertically, this will will cover the middle, front of your card. If you used this die vertically on a shorter card or horizontal card you can wrap it around your card base adding a little detail to the opposite sides of your card. The neatest thing about this die is that it includes a special spot for sentiments which can be stamped right onto the die. This is a fun and intricate pattern. This is such a neat take on our popular Cover Up Dies!



Switching gears now from our brand new and fab Halloween items we have a set that is perfect for back to school and to celebrate the teachers we love. The best thing about this set is the fabulous, modern take on the traditional apple shape using the smallest heart as the apple's leaf, but we've also included some traditional elements as well for versatility and in case that's just what you prefer. :)


We've also done the teacher stamp from the above stamp set in a slightly larger word die! It's fun - who doesn't love a word die? Teacher Word Die adds some fun pizazz to completing the sentiments with the coordinating stamp set.


These goodies just wouldn't be complete without use including a die set for the apples so that's just what we did for you! The Apple Pieces Dies Set can be used separately just with colored card stock or together with the Teacher Talk Stamps. You'll love creating these little apples!


We are also releasing a little sumthin' sumthin' for Thanksgiving! The great thing about this stamp set is that there are six sentiments and three of them are specifically for Thanksgiving but the other three are more general thank you greetings. I really like that there is a coordinating label stamp included with this set. It's the most perfect frame for these delightful and hand drawn sentiments which can be oriented either horizontally or vertically to work with all of the sentiments in the set perfectly. Of course, you need a die for this label stamp so we created on for you!!! :)


This is the coordinating So Thankful Label Die. It's a great little shape and if you want the stamps then you should totally get this die because you'll be able to use the coordinating frame stamp and then use this with tons of other goodies in your crafty collection. I think it's really neat that this can step outside its intended use and be totally awesome with other things you already own!


OK! So that does it for new release goodies! What are your faves?????

How about some projects??


Here I used our new Boo Word Die and Boo & Faces 2 Stamps to create this easy card along with some previously released goodies; Stitched Stars Dies and Starry Sky Die! I still love ribbon on my cards!!


This was another very easy and fast card to come together. It too uses our new Boo Word Die as well as our Seen On Halloween Dies. My pumpkin seen here was die cut twice. First, just the body of the pumpkin was cut and then I decided to go back and add the pumpkin body detail. It's that stitching you see in the center which is actually a separate die. I also die cut a leaf and stem from this set. By keeping my layout relatively simple it hopefully draws all your attention to the die cuts.


This card was a little more work to create but totally worth it for the end result! I started first by die cutting the two orange pumpkins. Then I went back in and added the pumpkin stitching detail to the largest. I then die cut each pumpkin with a die from our new Pumpkin Faces Die Set. Then, each pumpkin was popped up on foam dots and adhered to a golden pumpkin die cut. The little extras were created using our Stitched Scallop Border Die. Love this one! I am going to have to hold onto this one. I really love it so much! Happy accident that the googly eyes fit right in the pumpkin eye opening!! YAhoo!!! I love it when that happens!

I hope you're loving everything as much as I am. When you get a chance, go back and take a look at the video I created for you and leave me a comment!! 

I am going to be picking an additional winner of a $15 gift certificate from the commenters on this video. Leave a general comment on the video and then tell me which of the three stamp sets that I've given you an exclusive sneak peek of in the video are you most excited to see returning.

  8. All the Halloween stamps and dies are very beautiful and I very much like the cards you made with the new goodies. I also watched the video and I love how you explained in detail how you made your cards. It's always more fun to watch a video than to just look at a finished card. My "favourite" of the stamps sets of which you've given a sneak peek is the "Seen on Halloween". I think it's great that some of the stamps (e.g. witch and ghost) can be used with already existing dies.
