October New Release Hop Day 1!

Hello, Lil' Inker Friends!! Thanks for joining us today for Day 1 of our October New Release Hop!!



We have some exciting, beautiful, funny and creative new stamps and dies for you. I can't wait to show them to you!

If you'd like to watch the New Release Review Video I've prepared for you click here to watch or just keep on reading!



Here we go!


Last season our Oh Deer Christmas Stamp Set was a smash hit and we HAD to bring you a second edition for this year! Here is 'Tis the Season! This image features a sweet bird among the holiday foliage. All the sentiments included in the set stamp right on the banner and if you have the Oh Deer Christmas Set the sentiments are interchangeable. Woo hoo!! 
You will Loooooooove coloring this set. I've been obsessed with my Zig Clean Color Brush Pens - the perfect match for this pretty, yet rustic image.


Yup, our Baubled Christmas Wreath Die ROCKS!!! You will love experimenting with this die in all different colors and adorning it with your favorite embellishments! The circles in the die will fit sequins in sizes 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 mm! The dies included in the center will cut to assist you in decorating!  This is a FUN ONE!!

 

Our Brush Script Christmas Word Dies are a MUST HAVE! You will receive a set of three word dies in a beautiful brushed font; Believe, Wish and Hope. While we did design these with the holidays in mind, with a little creative license, they can totally be used for other occasions. These dies are perfectly oversized and sure to add elegance to your cards and paper crafted projects.


This is our new Merry Christmas Word Die. It's sweet, script-y and to the point. It's easy to add a pretty sentiment easily to your holiday cards. Enjoy!!! It's a no-brainer!! :)


Another no-brainer! This die has a bit more of a masculine feel like our Happy Birthday Border Die done in the same fashion, but totally fits with so many styles and goodies either already in your stash or included in this release. You will love experimenting with this die!


This is a follow up to last season's stamp set of the same name. This year, our All the Christmas You'll Ever Need 2 is a set of beautifully hand-illustrated sentiments with a bit of humor and flair. Good to know: several of these stamps stamp to fit on our Oh My Ornaments Dies which is super fun!



Our Rustic Christmas Stamps and Dies really surprised me. I knew I loved them as I was working with this art but I found myself reaching for the images again and again while I was crafting for this release. These goodies are amazing and sweet and everything you love in a new set of stamps and dies! I love that we kept the sentiments very simple and hand drawn which so nicely fits the homespun feel of these stamps!


Our Filled Christmas Tree Stamps are another in a series of similar images but done with trees in a holiday theme. This set is unique because the top part of each of the trees can also be small trees all on their own. Included are several "trunks" in different styles that you'll enjoy experimenting with. Of course we've included our lovely and simple greetings which stamp in the middle of each of the trees or can be used on their own on other projects. Love this!


Our set of Dual Stitched Tree Dies are PHENOMENAL!! They make perfectly sweet Christmas Tree Tags and are great to make shaker cards BUT they truly shine when combined with our Filled Christmas Tree Stamps. Good to know: the smaller tree die perfectly cuts out the top part of each of trees in the Filled Christmas Tree Set. YES!!!



Our new Moody Santa Stamps and Dies are so stinkin' cute! This 4 x 4 stamp set is sure to be a HIT! You will receive one Santa body and four different faces stamps which really show how Santa's feeling! Also included are several phrases that make gift giving hilarious and are sure to make you smile!

Here is another graphic showing you the many faces of Santa. My favorite is his mad face!!


Well.....what do you think? Are you loving everything? What are your faves?

How about I share some projects with you? All of these projects have the Brush Script Christmas Word Dies in common so I thought we'd start there for today.



My first card was made very simply by starting with a white A2 card base cut with our Silly Stitched Dies which I layered with a stone colored focal panel. I then die cut our new Baubled Christmas Wreath from white cardstock and added in all the shiny clear sequins I could which makes this really gorgeous. I topped the whole thing off with the word Wish from the Brush Script Christmas Word Dies cut from silver glitter paper. This came together so quickly and easily!


Here I started with an aqua card base and I heat embossed the snowflakes from the Rustic Christmas Stamps. Then, I die cut a tree using the new Dual Stitched Trees Die Set and topped the whole thing off with the Believe word from the Brush Script Christmas Word Dies. I did a little sponging and shadowing and added in some sequins.


This card was very easy to create. I started with a piece of watercolor paper. It's from Ranger. I'll link it HERE because it is THE BEST watercolor paper I've used with the new Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and it's super white in color which I've had a hard time finding in watercolor paper.
All I did was scribble three different color markers and blended them out with a watercolor pen. Once it was dry which I helped with my heat tool I heat embossed the snowflakes and stars from the Rustic Christmas Stamps. I added in my Hope Word Die from the Brush Script Christmas Word Dies and then also added in a phrase from our previously released Jolly & Joyful Stamps. I love the way this turned out!!
