New January Release Blog Hop Day 1

Helloooooo there!!! I am so very happy to be here today!!! Today is the first day of our new release blog hop and I'm super excited about these new items we have for you today especially for Valentine's Day, cards for loved ones and lots more!!


Here is a look at everything we're releasing in the store today.


Farm Love Stamps is a delightful set of farm animals hand illustrated just for you and they are perfect to use on Valentine's Day cards, cards for loved ones and even birthday cards. Some of the sentiments have also been hand illustrated and can be combined with a sweet printing font to create great and useful phrases. The accessories included in the set can be made to be held by many of the animals in the set. Love this!


Our Farm Love Dies have been designed to coordinate with our Farm Love Stamps and will cut out the images in the set with perfection and ease. The Sheep die features and extra cut around the arms so that many of the accessories can be placed in her arms as though she's holding them.



The Forever Heart Die Layer I is a really unique die! If you pre-cut and score and A2 card base and line this die up to that card base for cutting you will yield a really cool, off-center, dotted heart right into your card front. This set also features a Forever Word Die done in a cute script. It can be used over the heart you cut or entirely on its own for other projects. 

This die can also be combined with our Forever Heart Die Layer II below for an even more dressed up look. Read on!


Our Forever Heart Die Layer II can be used with Layer I or all on its own. By itself it will cut a stitched border almost all the way around your card but "traces" the image of an off-center heart. Used with Layer I it will outline the dotted heart that layer I cuts. It's actually so so cool and we hope you love this unique set of dies.


Our new Galentine's Day Stamps are seriously perfect for all your favorite girlfriends and besties. It's an homage to sticking together and the importance of bonds of our friendship - but done in a fun and sometimes silly way. This set can be especially perfect for any single girlfriends in your life too!
Each of the hand illustrated images have a greeting to coordinate with it, which is great. The set also includes a funny sentiment that I love from the movie bridesmaids. I love it because it's a reminder to all of our friends how truly fabulous they are. I hope you love this set!


Love and Honey is so so pretty! It features two focal sized florals. One is a heart filled with flowers and the other is a heart wreath made of flowers. Each one is delightful to color. Because of the scale of these images two simple, but classic and hand illustrate sentiments have been included in the set together with a couple of individual florals that can be used in lots of ways.


This is our new Love and Honey Hearts Dies and were designed specifically to coordinate with our Love and Honey Stamps and will cut the images in that set set with precision and ease.


This is a fun die! Love You More Than Words Script Heart Die is a script saying in a heart shape that I'm sure you will love to craft with. It fully says "I love you more than words can say". Some assembly will be required after cutting as the phrase cuts in two pieces - easy!


Love Is Love is a lovely addition to our collection. I love what it says. I love the options we've given you between the bold and block font to the softer and more brushed font. You'll enjoy mixing and matching both to create sentiments and even fun backgrounds.


I think our new Love Is Love Word Die is a MUST HAVE!!!! I love it because I love the block style and the scale of the letters. I love that the letters can be used in different colors and mixed and matched and I love that this die can also be used as a shaker die! We've even included some elements that can be used as shaker bits in this die set too!! I love love love this die!


Last but certainly not least is our new Quilted Stitched XOXO Die. It's quite possibly the most perfect background die for Valentine's Day featuring a stitched X's and O's pattern that adds just the right touch of stitching! This can be used for cards that express love any time of year! It's so easy to use too! I alway recommend cutting and scoring your card base first and then lining up this die to your card base and cutting. It adds instant texture and visual interest to your card fronts.


Would you like to see some of the projects I made to share with you today using these new goodies?? I'd like to show you these two.......


First up is a card I made using our Love and Honey Stamps and I chose to work with the wreath image. I started by die cutting my wreath using the Love and Honey Hearts Dies. Yes, die cut first is my tip. Then, you can use a MISTI to stamp your image perfectly onto your die cut piece. Once everything was all stamped and ready to go I colored this image with Copic markers. 

Funny enough, after the fact I used my Wink of Stella Clear pen to add some sparkle and for the first time ever it actually dulled my coloring. Does anyone know why that happened? 

 I added my sentiment onto a piece of vellum which I heat embossed in gold and trimmed into a flag shape which I put through my wreath and adhered to the back of the wreath so that the glue didn't interfere with my vellum. I even added a gold thread bow here too which is a tad bit hard to see in this photo. 

My background under the wreath was created using my new Quilted Stitched XOXO Die which I am obsessed with! All of this was layered over a plaid piece of paper and a navy card base. It actually came together very easily and I found the image very enjoyable to color!


I wanted to create a project showing you how nicely the little floral bits in the Love and Honey set could work. So I started with a red card base which I die cut first with my Forever Heart Die Layer I which cut out the off center dotted heart you see which I love. I layered a white piece of card stock behind it so it popped. Then, using my Forever Heart Die Layer II I cut the stitching detail you see around the dotted heart and around the edges of my project. I love love love how this looks cut with red card stock. Ooo la la!!!!

Once I colored and trimmed out the small floral bits and set them aside I cut a Cover Up Die Love panel (previously released)



and hand trimmed out that love word you see above. I think it's so cool that this die can be used to cut out an individual word! Once I glued that down I added my florals to dress it up and I used the Love Is Love Stamps to create the greeting you see heat embossed in grey. Isn't this lovely? I really really like how this turned out.

Tip: When using the Forever Heart Day Layer II pre-cut and score your card base and then center this die over your card base and then cut. Easy and you'll get a perfectly centered result every time!
