October New Release Day 3!

Hieeee!!! Happy Saturday!! How have you been enjoying our release? Today, I'm here for our third and final post for our October New Release.

Now that you've had a couple of days to check out our new release and the video I created for you by day 3 I typically post the images of the items we've released only without additional explanation. However, I've had lots to say about these items over the last few days so I invite you to go back to our Day 1 and Day 2 posts to read up on everything, why it's cool and how it works :). Also, like I mentioned, I did create a video and I hope you'll check it out. No making fun of my Boston accent!! ;)

Here is another look at everything we've released this week!

This is a sample showing you how each of the stamps above fit onto the new Leaf Love Dies.

Here are some new projects I've made with these new products.

This was made with Leafy Greetings Stamps and Leaf Love Dies. I picked a new favorite paper pad and had at it with my dies :).  I laid most of them over my card base and then layered some vellum over there which is where I displayed my focal leaf which I then heat embossed with a stamp from the Leafy Greetings Die Set. I really love how this came together.

This cute tag was made with our Make A Santa Die & Stamp Bundle. I cut my tag using our Anytime Tag Dies which I then stamped with with a sentiment from the bundle and then I started building my Santa. Here I used the body of the fox from our Hey Foxy Die Set and sat Santa upon our Stitched Scallop Border Die. With a little clever folding I added Santa's mitten to hold a heart from our Of the Hearts Die Set. How caaaaa-ute is this tag??? The great things about this die and stamp set is that it can do a lot more than just dress up our Triangle Treat Holder Die and this is just one of the things that it can do.

Above, I've shown you just how adorbs our Triangle Treat Holder Die can be for the holidays using the Make A Santa Die and Stamp Bundle as it's originally intended to be used. Wouldn't these be cute as part of your holiday table setting or great as teacher's gifts? I hope you love it! You should also know that all of the stamps in the Make A Santa Stamp Set all fit on our Stitched Sentiment Flag and Original Sentiment Flag Die and contains everything you need to create Santa's face including two different eyes, 2 mouths and a nose. :) Sweet, right?

Our Merry & Bright Holiday Greeting Die might be one of my favorite things from this release. As you can see here, this die cuts the greeting INTO your card front and leaves a frame of stitching around the entire greetings. This is somewhat of a follow up to our popular Boxed Up Birthday Greeting Die except different because the Boxed Up cuts a piece that you adhere to a card front but the idea for a beautiful, textural focal image is the same. It's lovely and we hope you love it. 
In my project above I made a 4.25" square card and die cut the  edge of my card base after cutting with the holiday die using the largest die in our Stitched Mats: Squares Die Set which cuts that border only. It looks so cool doesn't it? YES!! Loving this!!

The next two cards I made using the new Ornamental Christmas Stamps and Ornamental Christmas Tags Dies. These are FAB because they feature pretty holiday icon silhouettes that contain hand drawn greetings already inside. Then, these images can be cut out using the coordinating tags dies for gift tags or tied onto card fronts, but also, the hanger parts can be snipped off so that just the focal images can be used alone. I've demonstrated that below. Let's have a look.

So here, I die cut a white card base using our Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern Die which I love because it really does look like swirling snow. I then added a strip of brown patterned paper using our Border Builders Die Set and a topper from patterned paper from the same die set. As you can see I stamped my tree in three different colors and cut them out with the coordinating dies snipping off the hanger tags so we could use these just as decorative trees. The center tree is topped with a silver star cut using our Seasonal Stars Die Set . Isn't this purty? :) I think you're going to love playing with these. Check out the card below showing you how I used the hanger tag on the dies.

I added a piece of patterned paper to a red card base and "wrapped" it as though it were a gift with some pretty green seam binding. Then I stamped the bell from this set and die cut it and tied it onto my card  with gold twine adding in a vintage doily and some enamel dots for fun.

I had so much fun creating for this release. My craft room saw so much of me these past two weeks and it was so lovely to get crafty with all these new goodies. I know you you too will enjoy playing with these once they arrive at your house too!
