December Release Hop Day 2!

Hi there! I'm excited to be back for day 2 of our new release hop! Let's review our new goodies and then we'll get to some projects!

Here are the items we've just released....

If you love our Seriously Word Die and Seriously Awesome Stamps then this follow up release is a no brainer! The Awesome Word Die is a die created from my handwriting and the Hello, Awesome Stamps coordinate to make versatile and fun phrases. This is so fun! Awesome Possum!!!! Remember that! I had forgotten about it until one day I was chatting with our designer, Amy Kolling and she said it. Thanks Amy for the sentiment inspiration!! :)

If you love stripes. If you love dies that can do so much YOU NEED THIS SET!!! Long & Skinny Rectangles can be used as horizontal or vertical stripes, sentiment panels and lots lots more! The 3 tallest dies in this set are a perfect 5.50" tall for perfect alignment of vertical stripes on an A2 card base. The smallest is a perfect 4.25" tall and perfect for horizontal stripes on an A2 card base. Use the skinniest die in this set to die cut a stitched line anywhere on your card OR to make a custom sized stripe if you have one that overhangs your design! 

This is an awesome tag set. I might even like them MORE than our original Anytime Tags Dies (LOL) because Anytime Tags Dies 2 go back to the roots of some of our original dies! LOVE THESE! They're useful, cute and you'll love them!

The new Ampersand goodies are SO FANCY!!!!! I love love love the All About Ampersand Die Set - especially the frame version that can be used on a card front. These goodies are just plain FUN and I know you're going to love getting stampy and die-cutty with them - new word, LOL!

Ok, I don't even know what to say about all of our new gem products!!! They make me giddy and drool all at the same time! The Alphabet Gems Set is rediculously pretty! The Girl's Best Friend Stamp Set and Diamond Die are trendy, fun and so so pretty! And the Cover Up Die: Faceted is an extreme must have!! There are just so many things it can do!!!!! I love that there is a heart hidden inside the design. Brilliant, Sarah Jay! Brilliant!!

LOVE! That is all.

Here are some projects I made......

I made the card above using some silver triangles cut away from the panel I used below. I arranged them as trees over a snowy hill made using our Border Builders Die Set. The sentiment was created using our new All About Ampersand Stamp Set. I added in the snow with a chalk marker. Cute, right?

The above card was made using our Cover Up Die: Faceted from silver foil paper. I used Copic markers to shade in some of the triangles - love this look! Then I heat embossed the focal sentiment and stardust trail from our Girl's Best Friend Stamp Set! Ain't she purdy? HA!!!

This project was made using the Cover Up Die: Faceted as well. Here I used the cover up as a template to color in the heart with Copics. My sentiment was created with two products: Cover Up Die: Love and All About Ampersand Stamps! 
If you turn our Cover Up Die: Faceted horizontally with the littlest triangle in the top left corner you will find the heart hidden within the design. 

Are these cool products?? I'm really having a great time creating with these beauties!! Ok, let's get you hopping!
