Hi everyone!! Laura here for Day 2 of our new release hop!
I'm going to get right into our Day 2 but before I do I created a video for you which showcases all of the items from our new release. I even do some live stamping with our Sassy Script Stamps so pull up a chair and grab some coffee and get watching!!!
Or if you rather read on.....stay right here! :)
Here is another look at everything we are releasing this week. Make sure to read my Day 1 post because I talk a lot about different ways to use all of these new items as well as some tips and tricks I learned along the way during my crafting escapades.
First up is our Warm Welcome Stamps, Dies and Welcome Word Die and they are a fantastic trio of goodies that you will be sure to enjoy for lots of different crafting occasions. You can make a great wreath and decorate it with flowers and or a banner and the phrases in the set are totes useful! Love love love these new goodies!
Our Mirror Mirror Stamps and Dies are truly a unique find and thanks to Sarah Jay and her creative vision for this set it's definitely a home run. I love the look of the mirror stamps and all the different things they can say and do. For example, I love that you can use the "wall mirror" stamp and die and create a fun frame that is perfect for a sentiment from a different stamp set - very versatile. I love the sentiments and fonts in this set as well especially the happy birthday phrase. It's just the sweetest. You will love crafting with these new supplies.
Don't forget to check out the Mirrored Reflective Card Stock we have for you. You can earn a pack FREE when you add both the Mirror Mirror Stamps and Dies to your cart and the papers and use the code MIRRORMIRROR at check out. This offer is valid through June 12th.
Ok, Sassy Script Stamp Set is a MUST HAVE!!! I worked so hard and so long on this stamp set and I think I've got it just right. We included lots letters that are duplicates that have different connections so that you can experiment with making the most natural letter connections as possible while you're stamping and get your sentiments to look as though they were actually hand lettered. AMAZING!
I love this next stamp set and there is a battle in my head between the love for the sentiments and the love for the images because I don't know which pieces I love more! Basically our Hello Beautiful Stamps and Dies were designed around that fantastic bird image which has been broken up into several pieces so that you can stamp your bird in all different colors of you so choose. I created a handy document for you that you should check out for sure. It contains the easiest way to achieve a perfectly stamped and die cut bird. I promise it's easy anyways but I like to share my tips for perfection when and once I've discovered them and I certainly did here and now that I've used this method a couple of times stamping and lining everything up has become a breeze!! Of course I love the sweet floral images that are included in this set and they are delightful stamped in different colors ink, just plain in black or even stamped in black and colored in. The sentiments are truly beautiful and I love the things they say. I know that if you get this stamp set you will be reaching for it time and again. Be sure to also get the dies if you decide to get these stamps. Not only will they cut out the images in this set perfectly but we included this really unique border die that is just plain fun that you will love using.
Our two new Border Builder Die Sets just might be must haves also - oh gosh! I hope I don't say that for everything!!! I think I might!! LOL! Sometimes I find layouts the hardest part of card making and having these dies in my collection just makes layouts so easy and interesting. I love being able to add some visual interest to a card front in an easy way. I'm also obsessed with the Fringe Scallops detail we've been launching. This detail adds such a fun frill to cards. Love love love!!!
More Fringe except this time in the form of squares! You seriously cannot go wrong with these Fringe Scalloped Squares Dies. Add a fringe border to a 4.25" square. Play around with the frame possibilities these dies give you. One of our designers, Joy Taylor, even turned one of these dies on its side and used it as a diamond and my mind was blown!!!
Last but not least we have some new coffee themed goodies for you! We finally brought you a die set to coordinate with our popular Coffee Talk Stamps. If you're a fan of that stamp set then you'll be an even bigger fan of it once you pair it with this die set. Make sure to head to our website to read up on using this set with your stamps. YAY!!!!! Plus our Coffee Word Die is a must have. You will love having this in your collection and it pairs so nicely with our Coffee Talk Stamps as well as our Coffee Cozy Stamp Set. Love this!
YAyyyyyyyy!!! Don't you love everything?? I really had a great time crafting for this release. Would you like to see some projects? I think I'll focus on our new Sassy Script Stamps which I am seriously in love with!
It was very easy to create and stamp the word prayers in my layout below. Check it!
I started by stamping my letters in ombré purple ink and then I die cut it out using last release's Vintage Label Die and Vintage Label Sentiment Stamps. It was the perfect focal for this pretty lettering. I also used a sentiment from that stamp set to complete my greeting. It worked out so good!!! My flowers were all left overs from my Warm Welcome project which I featured yesterday. There is something so easy and fun about these flowers. If you haven't purchased that set set, sorry, you totally need to, LOL!!!! ;) My layout was very simple on a square card base, a little patterned paper and some vellum for softness. I really like how it came together.
For my second card today I also used the Sassy Script Stamps to create my happy birthday sentiment. I looooove how it looks!! Then I used my new Fringe Scalloped Squares to create the frame on the front of the card and I added my greeting inside the card to show through. I ended up doing a bit of watercoloring around the sentiment to hi-light it. Then, I turned the frame into a shaker . This is SO FUN!! I really really like the flexibility this stamp set provides to create custom sentiments that are bold and beautiful and I'm just obsessed with the fringe on these dies. AMAZING!!!!!
