I'm here for release hop day 2 with some new projects showcasing our new stamps and dies.
Did you get a chance to check out the new video? I've created a new video for you giving you an in depth review of everything new this release plus an exclusive look at some new stamps arriving later this Fall!
I got very CHATTY so grab your coffee and come get chatty with me!
Here is another look at everything we've released in the store.
This brand new set of Apple Dies, Teacher Talk Stamps and Teacher Word Die are really so fun! We really love the apples featured in these products because they are a modern and fun take on a traditional apple element, but of course we've included stamps and dies that will help you achieve that traditional looking apple as well.
Here's a great look at cards from Designers Jen Carter and Heather Hoffman showing you how this set contrasts between modern and traditional.
Modern apples in fun, bright colors with heart leaf topper!
Traditional - Still fun and bright colors but uses the elements in the set that give these apples a traditional feel.
Our Wrappers Delight Lattice Die is so unique! It's a fresh take on our Cover Up Dies. It's large enough to cover most of the front of your card but there is a special spot for stamping or focal die cuts. This is such a retro pattern but there is something about it that makes it great for Fall and an awesome background for both our apples and pumpkins from this release! Karen Baker and I collabed on this idea and she did an amazing job bringing it to life!
Here's a great example of this die in action from Design Team Member, Amy Kolling!
Our So Thankful Stamps and So Thankful Label Die just plain ROCK!!!! I am so digging the hand illustrated sentiments in this set which work awesomely for both Thanksgiving and thank you cards in general. The label die has a coordinating frame stamp and fit just about every stamp in this set, but can be used with lots of other stamps you already have in your collection. LOVE THAT!!!
Here's some great examples of these new goodies in action by our Design Team Members Maureen Merrit, Laura Williams and one from me too!
Our Seen On Halloween Stamps and Dies are among some of my favorites from this release! I think it's because, well, they're pretty and fun, but also because they coordinate with so many things we've previously released for Halloween and more. You know we always consider building versatility into the products we design for you and I think we've done a great job of that here!
Witch stamp coordinates with our Bats & Broomsticks Die
Ghost Stamp coordinates with our Stitched Ghosts Die Set
Not only do these dies coordinate with the Seen On Halloween Stamps but the pumpkin dies in this set have lots of special and versatile uses! We've included Dual Stitching where we thought it worked best and most decoratively. This feature makes for some fun shaker cards!
The pumpkin dies each have their own, additional, separate dies that add a stitched texture to the body of the pumpkins. These pumpkins also coordinate with our new Pumpkin Faces Dies and Boo & Faces 2 Stamps giving you so many design options built into this one die set.
These also coordinate with our Boo & Faces Stamp Set released last year. There are so many possibilities here and I'm just so happy about that. It really gives you a lot of bang for your buck!
In addition to coordinating with our Seen On Halloween Dies, Our Pumpkin Faces Dies would awesome on their own and also coordinate with our Stitched Ghosts Dies and Ghost Border Die too!
Here are some terrific examples from our Design Team Members using Seen On Halloween Stamps and Dies and Pumpkin Faces Dies.
Our Here for the Boos Stamp Set was a collaboration again with Sarah Jay. How fun is the Boos & Booze sentiment? It may not be for everyone and that's okay! I just thought it was too cute a coincidence not to include in this set. This set does a lot more too! It's terrific for Halloween party invitations and general Halloween notes.
Here are a couple of fan - boo boo - tastic examples using this stamp set from our Design Team Members!
Our Boo & Faces 2 Stamps takes the Pumpkin Faces Dies and makes them inkable but in slightly different sizes. I just felt the need to be able to ink these images as well as being able to die cut them so I combined the faces stamps with a couple of fun and buildable stamps.
Our Boo Word Die is actually really fun! I love word dies because they're very affordable and they can do so very much! I love the font we've used for this die and I think it will make for very fast and fun cards for Halloween!
Here are some awesome projects from our designers using our new Boo Word Die.
I have a few more projects to share with you today that I made using our Seen On Halloween Stamps and Dies together with our Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain as well as our Ombré Stripes and Ombré Chevrons paper pads and a hint of twine.
These are all 4.25" square cards that came together so quickly and easily and they were really FUN to make. Squee!

Before I let you go, here is a sneak peek look at our new and improved Nuts About You Stamp Set. We have a list a mile long of people waiting for this stamp set and it's been out of stock forever! I wanted to breathe new life into it and make it the best it could be for you! If you loved our original and love its coordinating Acorn Die you're going to be be pleasantly surprised.
Our sentiments have been revised with a fresh but still quirky font. Some of them have been removed and some new ones added like "You're a little nutty". The faces are all larger and the acorn bottom is larger as well. We also have a revised Acorn Die Set coming for you as well! It's a set of 3 acorns and 2 leaves.
I was going to do a pre-sale for these items, but that's just bad ju ju, LOL. I prefer to have things in my possession before I sell them so as soon as these are available I'll do some posts and you can get your hands on them. They're SUPER fun. I'm sorry they weren't available for this release. They were very much and overachiever's last minute decision to change these up for you!
Ok, I think that about does it. We'll see you tomorrow for our third and final hop day.
Thank you so much for joining us and thank you for your positive feedback and as well as for your orders.Love,
