April Release Hop Day 3

Hey there, Lil' Inker Friends! How are you today?

Thank you so much for stopping by on this third and final new release hop day. Did you know that we're giving away three $15 gift certificates for hopping with us and leaving comments along your way? We are :) !

We have a huge group of new stamps and dies for you this month and I've had more fun playing with these new goodies. 

Typically with this last day of our release I share the graphics of our new products. If you'd like to read about everything they do, all their ins and outs and hi-lights and things that may not be obvious about these products at first glance I invite you to check out the my Day 1 and Day 2 posts or head to our WEBSITE to read the product descriptions. Thanks!:)

Here's everything we just released and are now in store.

Vintage Ink Stamps

Vintage Ink Die Set

We Connect Stamps

Here are some brand new projects for you today!

This one is made using our new Awesome Blossoms Dies and Stamps as well as our Speech Bubbles 2 Die Set. I did a little masking with these stamps all around a speech bubble and I was able to do so because I cut the dies from thin printer paper to use as a mask. Once I was done I used a Copic marker to shade all around the inside of my bubble and then I stamped my sentiment. This happens to be a saying my friend and Maid of Honor Katey said to Keith and I at our wedding. Aw!!!!! Love this!

This card too was made with Awesome Blossoms Dies and Stamps. Here I chose to cut the dies using colored card stock and I stamped some of the centers with Versamark Ink. It completely changes the look of this set. I love how versatile these goodies are! You'll see I added a little white ink to the leaves which I cut from kraft paper.

Here I've used our brand new Petal Card Die. I wanted to show you how great it looks attached to a card front once it's all wrapped up! Awesome! Right?

And then it just pops open to reveal a sweet greeting inside making this an interactive card. 

Here I used our new Send Pretty Greetings Stamps and above is a great example of the shadow or off-stamping I've been referring to. I stamped my sentiment and then I used the solid heart in the set which is slightly off size and I just love this different effect with some white peeking through.

This is the inside of my card. I chose to use my Mini Glassine Envelope as a gift card holder which I taped inside with a little washi. Doesn't think make a great presentation? It was SUPER easy to make!

Here again I've made a Petal Card note. Inside I added a die cut. It's the second smallest die in our Dual Stitched Squares. It fits in there PERFECTLY! Isn't that GREAT? I love this sentiment so I used it again. I needed a couple of quick thank you notes. :)

Here is a close up of my Petal Card all folded. Did you see the video I created showing you how to fold this? You'll want to check it out HERE. It's very quick and informal but does the trick ;)

Here is my little note card all wrapped up in a mini glassine envie and sealed with washi. 

I think these are just so very cool. Oooooooo! Image what we can do with these for the holidays! LOVE!!! 

Here is another quick look at the projects I shared earlier this week.

I hope you've enjoyed our hop! Don't forget to leave comments for our designers along the way. We'll be doing a recap post that announces A LOT of winners.
