Thank you once again for all the wonderful feedback and for your orders!! We are very busy now here behind the scenes packing lots and lots of orders which we intend to get out in the mail today (they went out!) because Monday is a Holiday.
Ok, so - are you loving everything??? As I write this I intend to get into my craft room and make a few more projects. I'll let you know if that happens, LOL! (Update: It didn't)
I do have a few more things for you to see today and I'll get to that in a minute. Today being the last day of our hop, I typically just share the product graphics of everything we've released and a recap of my cards, but today I'm going to encourage you to watch our video if you haven't already because it really gives a chatty but thorough explanation of everything new and all the versatile ways the new stamps and dies can be used and what they can be mixed and matched with.
It is long I won't deny it. I'm a chatty girl who works full-time out of my home by myself for more than the majority of the week so once I get talking, especially about things I love, it's pretty hard to stop me!! HA!!! I literally saved you 10 minutes of video by editing out most of my "So's" and "Um's". HA!
Don't forget, if you leave me a comment on this video (on youtube in the comments) about how you enjoyed it and which of the exclusive sneak peeks you're excited to see return to the store you'll be eligible to win a $15 gift certificate to Lil' Inker Designs. YAY!
Here are some new projects I haven't shared yet and they use our brand new Teacher Talk Stamps, Apple Pieces Die Set and Teacher Word Die.
This is the card featured in the intro of our video as you can see and this was easy and fun to make. I started with a cherry red card base and die cut it with our Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern Die and then die cut a pink Scalloped Stitched Border which I stamped my sentiment on. Then I got busy making my apples. I stamped two in red and one in pink and stamped the center of each with the seeds stamp in brown. I die cut these apples with the coordinating Apple Pieces Die Set and adhered them to a white strip of card stock. I also used the Apple Pieces Dies to cut the small heart from green card stock which I used as the leaves for my apples. I just love that this little heart can be used as a leaf and it gives the apples such a cute and fun look! Easy! Card done!!! See how this card can be for anyone, not just a teacher? I like that a lot about this set!
Next up is a card I made using the Teacher Word Die and Teacher Talk Stamps. I started by stamping my apple right onto my Anytime Tag Die cut. Then I added a banner cut by hand which is where I added my Teacher Word Die cut. I finished everything off with twine and ribbon as shown, threw in some decorative paper on an acetate or clear card base and called it done. I actually love how this came out and I intend to give this to my son's new teacher.
Here is another quick peek at our new goodies! And HERE is a link to the entire new collection!
Here is another quick look at all the other projects I made for this release.

Our new Sunshine Sentiments is actually a marriage of our Rainbow & Clouds Sentiments and our Sunshine Sentiments Stamp Sets with a fresh, new font!
This is a new and improved Pinwheel Sentiments Stamp Set. We made the sentiments larger and set with a different layout. I think these are going to be FAB with your pinwheel dies!
