March New Release Hop Day 1

Hellloooooo there!!! How is everyone today? Ready for an exciting new product launch? I'm going to get right to it mostly because I'm just so so very excited!! Squeeee!


Here is a look at everything we're releasing!

First up are our new Bouquet of Roses Stamps and Bouquet of Roses Dies!


This stamp set is a follow up to our very popular Wreath of Roses Stamps but this time the flowers are arranged in a gorgeous bunch wrapped with twine! This set features a Mother's Day theme but there are other versatile greetings in the set as well making this useful for many other occasions. YAY! I really like the little tag stamp we added here. It's so sweet. All of the tiny stamps in the set you see at the top left stamp to fit right on this tag. How fun is that?


This is the coordinating die set for our Bouquet of Roses Stamps. It cuts out the main image and tag image perfectly. Notice we've also included a Thanks Word Die in this set similar to our Wreath of Roses Die Set which has a Hello Word Die in the same font. Lovely!


Our new Carrot Treat Holder Die is the perfect way to give a small Easter or Spring treat! Imagine these easy boxes at each table setting at your Easter dinner? OH! I like that idea!
This die couldn't be more simple to use. All you have to do is cut two of these to complete your box. I recommend pre-folding the flaps and applying adhesive which will make these come together even more quickly. Then, just fill and tie closed with ribbon or twine - preferably in green like a carrot top would be.


Our new Charm Tags Dies were created specifically to tie onto your Carrot Treat Holders but can obviously be used for so many different projects. The set includes two tags and a plain circle which layers over each of the tags for a fun and nicely finished look. I like that these can even be used to make flowers! I love the perfectly petite size of these tags!


I really love this new Cover Up Die: Easter Egg Pop Up! Ok, so I had the best time playing with this die and I can't WAIT to see what the Design Team's done with it! This die is a perfect A2 size and cuts only the egg pattern into your premade card bases. It does not cut a rectangle as well. The unique thing about this die is that the eggs only partially cut. This means they can be popped up away from the base adding gorgeous texture! LOVE THIS!!!!!! You can even snip out the eggs by hand and then this die has a whole new look or can even be used as a stencil!


Oh my goodness! I am so in love with our new Easter Parade Stamps!! When I was working on this stamp set I wanted to make sure that it wasn't just for Easter or Spring so I included some sentiments that stamp to fit on the banners like 'thank you', 'happy birthday', and 'best chick ever' and more!! Aren't these images just the sweetest?


Here is the Easter Parade Die Set which will cut out all of the images in the Easter Parade Stamp Set with precision and ease!


OH BOY!!!! I think this new Happy Bunny Border Die Set is AWESOME!!!! Let me explain how it works. The die set contains two borders featuring a bunny silhouettes and are meant to be layered together. Each border die is 5.50 inches wide so they're technically designed to be used on a  horizontal A2 card, but with clever design and layout during use can ALSO be used on a traditional A2 tent card. 

Then, using the coordinating Happy Bunny Stamps below you can truly make your bunnies come to life!!


Oh the faces in this stamp set are some of my favorites we've ever done - EVER!!!!!!!!! Even though this was designed to add character to the bunnies in the Happy Bunny Border Die Set these faces can be used on so many other things in our collection. You can add faces to the small eggs in our Easter Basket Die Set, for example! How cute would that be?

But back to its main purpose. Mix and match these faces and stamp them onto your Happy Bunny Border Dies. We've also included ear stamps for the centers of the ears, cheek stamps to add a cute flush of color, cute little eye glasses, hair bows and even fluffy bunny tails!  If you notice, these bunnies can be made to look like they're front facing by adding faces or facing away from you if you add just the fluffy bunny tail stamps!!!! Isn't that neat? And versatile too? 
We also included five hand illustrated and useful sentiments for all your card making needs! Love love love this set! 


I am loving the simplicity of our new Peek-a-Boo Bunny Die Set! Want to make sweet Easter and Spring cards without having to spend a ton of time? This set is for you!!!! It's designed to fit on an A2 card base but can also be used as a tag if you punch a hole in an ear. I was thinking it could be cute to use as an Easter egg holder if you cut a strip of paper and make into a ring and then add this guy to the front. That could be super fun - I just thought of that! The set includes the main bunny head, a die that cuts eyes, nose and mouth, two round cheek accents, two inner ear pieces and then a set of whiskers. I've added a tab to the edge of the whiskers so that you can add adhesive there and tuck them under the cheeks or the edges of the bunnies face. 


This is another set I just couldn't put down and once I started I just didn't want to work and I wanted to play with cactus dies all day!!!!! This So Prickly Cactus Die Set is a  complimentary die set to our previously released So Prickly Stamps. I say complimentary and not coordinating because the die set is a standalone and does not cut out the cactus stamp images. BUT the faces and arms and legs stamps can certainly be used with the die set and of course the sentiments in the set are the perfect pairing. This is just WAY cute and you will love building these sweet little potted cacti!


Our So Very Kind Greeting Die is a follow up to dies we've previously released like our Merry & Bright Greeting Die, Love You Greeting Die and our Today & Always Greeting Die. It works just the same as its predecessors - the die cuts the greeting and a stitched border into your card fronts or focal panels. Of course, you can always snip out the words and use them in a totally different way. I love the sentiment of this one and it has a LOT of uses.

Have a look at some of the projects I made using our new items. I think I'll start with our Bouquet of Roses Stamps and Dies.



This was simple to make! I started by stamping and coloring my bouquet and I die cut it out with the coordinating die and decided to wrap the flowers with twine. CUTE! I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment in white onto black card stock which I trimmed out. My yellow panel was cut with our Silly Stitched Squares Dies and everything was assembled and layered over a polka dot card base. Sweet, pretty and simple!


Here I got a bit more intricate with my image. I stamped and heat embossed my main image in gold first and then I did some watercoloring with my Zig markers. You can see that I added the cute little tag in the set which I stamped with 'Mom' and added a sentiment on a vellum flag. Love love love this!!! 


Here you can see I made a treat with the Carrot Treat Holder! Isn't this so sweet? I used traditional orange card stock and tied off with a sweet green ribbon. I think these are so creative and cute! I like that this treat box can be used for many different things. If you decide to cut it in a different color and seal it closed with adhesive you can turn this "triangle" into just about anything!!


Here you can see that I've added a yellow tag using our Charm Tags Die Set. I stamped the circle layer with a chick image from our new Easter Parade Stamps and stamped and hand trimmed a sentiment to fit right onto the tag. LOVE the stitched detail here!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

I hope you love everything I shared today!!!!

  29. Hard to pick a favorite. Love the border bunnies
    and the fantastic embellishments for them.
    That is a fun idea and could be used for other
    animals and people. The egg die gives so
    much dimension to a card - and can be easily
    accented with the background paper.
    Fantastic release.
    thanks for having the hop.
