December New Release Hop Day 1

Hi there, Friends!!! I'm excited to be here for our New Release Blog Hop!!

This release features some follow-ups to favorites that released previously this year plus lots more!!!

Let's get right to it! Shall we?

If you'd like to see the video or vlog I prepared for this release, click below to watch. :)

First up is a follow-up to a super-popular die we released earlier this year called Boxed Up Birthday Greeting Die. This one is our Boxed Up Thank You Greeting Die and just like its predecessor cuts out a stitched square featuring a greeting cut within. The size is a perfect focal point for an A2 card and can be used in so many different way! What I really like about this die is the extra little bit of space because it leaves you lots of options for adding in a little sumthin' sumthin'! LOL!

Our previously released Dual Dotted Rectangles and Squares were really big hits this year so we've decided to bring you two follow-ups with this release; Dual Dotted Circles and Dual Dotted Ovals! They are SOO pretty!! Wait until you see them on the team projects - WOW!!

And who could resist a set of Dotted Tags? This set of three is a fabulous addition to any die-loving crafter's collection.

Our new Cover Up Die: Diamond Lace's AMAZING!!!! It cuts the coolest dotted, diamond pattern in various sizes of dots adding to the visual interest. 

I'm really excited about our new Inky Flowers Stamps! These doodled, ink-spotted flowers can be watercolored, heat embossed, stamped and colored with your favorite markers and will look fun and gorgeous each way. I really love the two over-sized greetings in this set making thank you cards or sympathy cards come together quickly and easily. Each of the three, small greetings coordinates with the focal greetings in the set. If used with the "with gratitude" stamp , the small greetings will stamp perfectly over the "grat" in gratitude. If used with the "with sympathy" stamp, the small greetings stamp right underneath the with and above sympathy. These options make for great sentiment building and the option to create multi-colored greetings.

I thought that the large, focal sentiments in our Inky Flowers Stamp Set were so pretty, I decided to turn them both into WORD DIES!!!!!!!! OH YEAH!!!!! What's also great and good to know is that the smallest word stamps above will work with the word dies the same way. FUN!!!

Our new Keep It Sassy Stamp is more of what we love here best; fun and sassy sentiments! This is a set that we think you'll love and can be used for so many different occasions including birthdays, love, just because and more!

Our So Prickly Stamps and MY FAVORITE FROM THIS RELEASE!!!! I couldn't put this set down once I started using it. It is ADORABLE and so very fun to work with. Included in the set are 4 main cacti stamps and two plant containers so that you can stamp a traditional cactus plant. But this set really comes to life when you start adding in the little accessories like faces, arms, legs and more. We also gave you come cutie little sentiments to use with these images including my personal favorite, "Love You Thorns and All". It's a take on something that my Grandmother used to say to use growing up, "I love you, warts and all".  Aw. 

Here's a little something new for you! We have a paper pack for you which coordinates with our new So Prickly Stamp Set. This is a pack of 12 6x6 papers; 1 of each of the designs you see above and for just $3 how can you resist these fun, cactus papers? LOVE them!  These are all printed on AMAZING, ultra-smooth, premium cardstock that you will love working with.

Do you love everything? What are your faves??
Would you like to see some projects??

This first card was made sooooooo simply with our new Boxed Up Thank You Greeting and some patterned paper. Here I've added a heart cut with our Stitched Hearts Dies which I think works so well here. This would be a great die to use if you wanted to make someone a pack of handmade thank you cards - great for mass producing!

This card features two new products; our Dual Dotted Ovals and Keep It Sassy Stamps. Isn't this a fabulous saying? It's so true! Also featured here are our Frames & Flowers Dies Set and Wonky Squares Dies. I'm looooooving these new ovals. WOW!!!

Here I've featured our new So Prickly Stamps and Dotted Tags Dies as well as our So Prickly Papers - aren't they cute?? To get this two-toned look to the cacti, first I stamped them in a lighter green, then separately in a darker green. Then I trimmed out the smaller cactus and attached it over the lighter one with a foam dot to raise it up a bit. WOWZA - these tags. RIGHT??!! I looove them!

OH. MY. GOODNESS. I had so much fun creating for this release. I wanted to keep going BUT I had to cap my creativity for now only because I had so much to do for this release to get it all shiny and ready for you. :) BUT, nothing says I can't sneak back up to my favorite space and whip up a few things. :)

Before I send you on your way to hop and see all the gorgeous projects the team has made to share with you today I'd like to remind you to leave comments along the way for our Design Team. We'll be picking three winners who will each receive a $15 gift certificate to our store. YAY.
