Release Day Two!!

Hello and welcome to new release day 2!

Let's do a recap of all of the new products that were released yesterday...

The perfect Halloween silhouettes - a witch on her broom and a bat flying through the night sky. They are fantastic used alone but are AMAZING when used with their coordinating stamp set. This die set features a built in alignment tool for perfectly stamped die cuts! 

LOVING the sketchy texture of these stamps! They're a super trendy take on some Halloween favorites! I really like the sentiments we did here too. I like that they're non-traditional and I love the combo of fonts! Karen Baker did a lovely job with these as always! This is the perfect companion set to our Bats & Broomsticks Die!

Oh my stars!! This die is amazing! It cuts a starry sky right across your card front and the effect's the BOMB! I love that it can be used on either side (long or short) of an A2 card base because of it's perfect design. Ariana rocked this one for us! And I love that it can be used three times on your card for a card front full of stars. I like to turn my die around in the second or middle cut so that the stars really appear random across the page. This is one seriously fun die!

Oh, yes we did!! I have had a number of customers emailing me about doing a set of stitched stars and I think we've nailed it here with keeping the set smaller at only four dies, each being a super useful size and perfect for standard card bases. And how can forget their nifty little feature? Not only do these guys cut perfectly stitched stars but they also leave a stitching around their negative cuts just like our Stitched Mats: Circles.

And while we technically released this stamp set last month as part of our 3rd Birthday Celebration we are showcasing it this month as part of this release even though it is currently sold out. It's a super fun fun set and totally makes me chuckle and the fonts are way adorable. 

Let's get to some projects shall we?

I made this using the largest die in our Stitched Stars Die Set. I actually made a little shaker and inside are some fun and colorful sequins which I put between two layers of acetate and accented with a simple sentiment in sparkle chipboard letters.

Here's a close up...

This might be my favorite card in the bunch for this week. Here I used our Bats & Broomsticks Stamps and Dies and our Starry Sky Die. I love how the stars look at the top of this card! My sketchy witch is stamped in black ink on light grey card stock which makes the texture really pop and my sentiment is done with more sparkle chipboard and finished off with a vellum strip of paper at the bottom. Love this!

Here I used our Starry Sky Die twice on the top of my card base. I like how the first one goes over the fold just a little giving it a whole different look. I also added character to the smallest star in my Stitched Stars set by stamping one of the smiley faces from our Acorn Sentiment Stamp Set. I think its the perfect compliment to this silly sentiment. I know EXACTLY which friend is receiving this card! 

So even though Snarky Sentiments is sold out at the moment I am expecting them within the next two weeks. If you wish to order our new goodies but also want a copy of Snarky Sentiments feel free to place an order and request in the Comments to Seller section of your order that I wait to ship it until Snarky is restocked. At that time, you can place a second order which I will combine with the first and reimburse your duplicate shipping.

Ok, so I'm going to send you right off to Alicia Thelin's blog for some crafty greatness.
