Before I get on to showing you the new items in store this week, I'd like to invite you to grab some coffee and come sit with me for a bit and watch the video I've prepared which is going to be the BEST way to get to know our new items, how they coordinate, mix and match and so much more. It's a bit of a long one...again.... so get comfy! :)
Here is everything new releasing in the store this week!
Easter Hodge Podge Stamps
Don't pass by this stamp set! It can do so many things and coordinates with so many things in our release! First, let's talk about my favorite thing this stamp set can do. The four smallest greetings in this set were designed to specifically work with our Bunnies & Bows Die Set. Each of the stamps will stamp and fit right onto the backs of the bunnies even with their bows on in most cases. I think this is a delightful and fun way to breathe new life into a popular existing die set!
Here is an example of how the stamps fit onto their bunny die cuts:
Our Easter Hodge Podge also coordinates with a new die set in our collection, our Dual Stitched Egg & Easter Greeting Die Set. The textural egg stamp in this stamp set can be perfectly cut out with our new egg die AND the text in this stamp and the single Happy Easter stamp coordinate with our new Easter Greetings Paper Pack. It's wonderful that these all coordinate and work together. It's like having a kit except YOU get to pick and choose which pieces you want...and therefore save yourself some cash. :)
Dual Stitched Egg & Easter Greeting Die Set
This new egg and greeting die is FABULOUS! The egg is the perfectly sized focal image for cards and even makes a great tag and because we've included our Dual Stitching design it makes a ROCKIN' shaker card! The greeting die included is done in a pretty calligraphy and can be used as the main greeting on a card front but also fits right over the egg. This set is truly the MUST have of the release because it mixes and matches with so many things. It also works with this new stamp set......
Our Egg & Flower Greetings Stamps are really something special. We've given you three main, floral images in egg shapes all of which can be perfectly cut using the dual stitched egg die. You'll notice the space in the center of the stamps. That's where you can stamp your greeting. All six greetings in the set will stamp to fit in the centers of the eggs. These are really so so very lovely. I hope you love them as much as I do!
Have you tried out paper packs yet? We've brought you nothing but the best, most buttery paper we could find. This is a pack of 10 6x6 patterned sheets are all printed and cut in the USA on ultrasmooth premium card stock. You'll receive 1 piece of each of these designs which will come loose, not padded, in a resealable bag great for storing these sheets and their scraps. You'll notice that the sheets with text coordinate with our Easter Hodge Podge Stamps. LOVE!
This might be the best little basket EVER!!!! It's the perfect focal size and I am in love with the stitching texture we've added. Of course this set wouldn't be complete without a egg die and every basket needs a bow. What's great is that this basket doesn't scream Easter and can be used for lots of different things including to hold flowers which DT Member Jen Carter so cleverly figured out!
Ahhhhhh! I LOVE TAGS!!! Do you? Me too, LOL! FINALLY! A set of tags with an embossed dots border. The dotted pattern you see does not cut out but presses into your paper. You will love the beautiful detail this adds to your tags. It's perfect for every occasion and coordinates with everything!! I recommend you watch the video above to see a tip on getting the best embossed dots on your tags.
HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS because this stamp and die set is a socks-knocker-offer, HA!!! It's the first stamp set I've ever done without sentiments but there was just so much floral goodness to give you that I was forced to leave them out. HOWEVER, we have so many sentiments in our stamp collection that these will coordinate with everything. They'll coordinate with everything you already have in your collection as well even if not from Lil' Inker Designs! This is a unique set because it features three types of stamps; multi-step stamps, mix and match stamps and single step stamps. You'll want to CLICK HERE when you have a chance. This link is to an index I created for you showing you which stamps are meant to work together exclusively, which are the mix and match and even which dies coordinate with them. That's right! We've given you a coordinating die set! YAY!!!!I'm so glad we developed dies because these flowers are just too perfect to fussy cut. They deserve a perfect cut! :)
Here are some fun and useful gift packaging items I thought you might like to have access to for your crafting. I'll leave you to watch our video explaining exactly what they do and how you can use them or invite you to go to our website HERE to read up on them.
One more bit of fabulousness before I send you on your way...... Our new Bunny Hugger Die and Stamp Bundle is the best way ever to give a hug because it's sure to be filled with a treat! First, die cut this cute, chubby bunny and use the stamp set included to add his cute little face and stamp a greeting on his tummy. Then, add your favorite small chocolate and even a lollipop with a glue dot and fold his hugging arms around the treat and add another glue dot to hold it in place. Seriously? How cute is this? They fun and create a fast little treat and can easily be mass produced. They could even be used as tags and tied onto a gift with some clever hole punching through bunny's ear.
Important Note: We are already running low on these treat dies. If it's something you like don't wait. One of our wholesalers decided they were fantastic too and ordered a ton of them. Don't worry, there are enough to go around but once they're sold out it will be 3-4 weeks before more come in. Thanks!
Ok, so that does it for the items being released this week. What do you think? Would you like a look at some of the things I've created to share with you?? I think I'll begin with our new Easter Hodge Podge Stamps and Dual Stitched Egg & Easter Greetings Die. Also featured are our new Embossed Dots Tags, Clear Cone Treat Bags and Clear Pillow Boxes.
