You are in luck because we have a real treat for you today. It's Day 1 of our April Release Hop. Let's have a look at everything that's new to the store today. We have tons of awesome new stamps and dies!
This is a BIG release so...go ahead....grab some coffee.....I'll wait! :)...........
.... Back? Great!!! Let's go!
This die set ROCKS! You can use too, as the name suggests, make an apple shaker piece for card making and paper crafting. This die can also make/do a couple of other things, which is great, right? It can make one large apple die cut which you can use as a focal image or even a tag. I can make a small apple as well, which is so cute. The stem and leaf dies included in the set work for all three options I've mentioned. This die can also do one other thing.....you can use the negative cut of the largest apple as a window/frame and it's great because we've included a stitching detail around the outer edge of this die.
Our new Apple of My Eye Stamps are super cute! This stamp set was designed specifically to coordinate with our Apple Shaker Die, but they can truly be used on their own. The fonts are terrific and the sentiments are great for teachers, love, birthdays, thank yous and friendship cards.
This is our new Cover Up Die: Stitched Quatrefoil and it might be the most beautiful stitched die we've ever done! What do you think? Isn't it awesome? Wait until you see the projects the Design Team Ladies made using this die. Once you do you'll know this die is a MUST HAVE!
Our new Grad Class Stamps is a wonderful collection of hand illustrated stamps perfect for graduates but there's also an element of encouragement in there too! The sentiments are sized just right for A2 cards and other paper crafted projects. I think you'll love this one!
Best Blooms is really pretty and of course I LOVE the flowers but what I think makes this set extra special are the sentiments and who they're for - all the special women in your lives! It's perfect with Mother's Day approaching! It's so fun to use and the Best Blooms Die Set allows you to die cut the main elements in this set with ease!
MIC DROP!!!!! HAahahah!!! I'm kidding! No, seriously though - I am obsessed with our new Pretty Painted Alphabet Stamps. These brushed or painted looking letters stamp like an absolute dream and even better, we've created a coordinating Die Set which will let you cut these letters out.CLICK HERE to see our Pretty Painted Alphabet Die & Stamp Index. I've labeled the die set with the corresponding letters they cut and a closer look at the stamps in their coordinating dies. This handy reference can even be printed and stored with your supplies. This is another true MUST HAVE!
The second die in this set cut out an actual square with our Silly Stitched design and it's perfectly sized down to layer over a 4.25" square card base or makes a great focal size on an A2 card.
The third die in this this set cuts a square tag featuring our Silly Stitched design! It's the first tag we've ever done with this detail and we think you'll love it!!
Oh, these owls have a very special place in my heart. One of my dearest friends, Suzanne, just had her first baby, baby Willem. He's the sweetest!!! She asked me if I would make her something for Willem's nursery and asked for owls. OMGSH, I didn't have anything right in the store!!!!! Soooo....I created this stamp set, specifically the mommy owl image and sentiments just so I could use them to make a little something for Willem.
That being said, this entire set is just SO CUTE and don't you just love the name Hootie Patootie? The images are perfectly on the small side so no major coloring is needed which I happened to enjoy. Love love love these and I hope you love them too! Don't forget about our coordinating Hootie Patootie Dies too!
You know what I reach for a ton when crafting? My Stitched Scallop Border Die and the last time I reach for it I found I was asking why I hadn't thought to design more dies just like it with a different detail. SO, without further ado, I bring you our Stitched Chevron Border Die. Insert applause here, LOL!!
I may have saved the best for last. I'll let you be the judge of that! :)
Wreath of Roses is a phenomenal floral wreath image that is perfect to color, water color and even heat emboss and we've included 8 lovely sentiments so perfectly coordinated with the wreath all of which fit to stamp inside the wreath if you like.This set can be used to create cards for so many occasions including thank you cards, birthdays, friendship, encouragement and more! Did you notice that the coordinating die set also includes a hello word die? BONUS!!
Yayyyyyyy!!! That's a great group of goodies is it not? What are your favorites?
Would you like to see a few projects? I think I'll focus on our new Wreath of Roses Stamps and Wreath of Roses Die Set. I used this set to make three new projects for you today.
For my first project, I die cut my wreath first and then, using my MISTI, I stamped my wreath in black on kraft paper and colored it with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. My card is 4.25" square and also features our new Silly Stitched Squares Dies. I used the largest die to cut the border around the edge of my card base. I did a little tearing and tied on some twine and called it done. So so pretty! I love the addition of the hello word die to the center. It's perfect!
My next project uses our Cover Up Die Stitched Quatrefoil to create that excellent background. Here my wreath was stamped onto green cardstock and heat embossed in white for a quick and easy for gorgeous focal element. As you can see the sentiment was stamped inside the wreath on the panel beneath. I love that all the sentiments in this set stamp in the center of the wreath! See that interesting "v" flap? I made it using our Dual Stitched Triangle Dies. Honestly, I wish I had filmed this, but I didn't. I'm trying to remember......I think I used the largest triangle and lined it up to the edge of the card base and cut and then repeated on the other side. It was SOOO easy and I love the effect. In fact, I may need to design some dies like this because I love this layout so much!
Same technique here with heat embossing but on yellow card stock. Our new Stitched Chevron Border Die is making an appearance here to. It's cool, right??!! I love this set so much I just kept on creating. I bet this one will inspire you as much as it inspired me!
Here is a video I created of me making this card. :)
