December New Release Hop Day 2

Well, hello there!!! Welcome back to our blog for day 2 of our new release hop!

I'm very excited about all the positive feedback I've been reading about our new dies and stamps. Squeee!!! Thank you so much!!!

I'd like to share more projects I made with you but before I do that. Have you checked out the video I made for you? It's a chatty version of this post, basically. I mentioned in my video, I work out of my home and by myself 90% of the time so WATCH OUT! When I get chatting it's hard for me to stop! LOL!

Here is another look at everything new in our store this week. These are the items that are fan-favorite-follow-ups:

Dual Dotted Circles Dies and Dual Dotted Oval Dies cut a stunning dotted detail around the borders of the shapes they cut but they also cut this detail around the negative cut as well leaving a.....decorative frame in the wake of the cut. It's really like getting two die sets in one. If you love decorative focal panels in your crafting you will LOVE having these in your collection.

Our Dotted Tags feature the same detail as mentioned above. I like that we've given you the option to add a hang hole to your tag so that these can be used as focal panels for cards or other projects as well. These are some of the prettiest tags I've EVER SEEN AND that's saying a lot because you all know how much I love stitching!1

More dots? Why yes. We've got that! This is a really cool, intricate pattern. All of these dots cut away from your paper leaving this gorgeous, lacy pattern in your card front. My favorite reason why I love our Cover Up Dies is because they add immediate texture and visual interest to any project and with ease. YES!!! If you're already a fan of our previously released Cover Up Dies that feature any of our dotted patterns then you will love this one too!

YES!! This is a follow up to our popular Boxed Up Birthday Greeting Die but this time for thank you cards! This die cuts a stitched square with a greeting inside which can be affixed to a card front or made into a gift tag or even a shaker! I love the little spot in the design where you can add in a little heart or a flower. Lots of options here. It's GREAT if you want to mass produce thank you cards quickly.

Our new Keep It Sassy Stamps is very much a follow up to your Snarky Sentiments Stamps that so many of you love. I love so many of these sentiments that I don't even know which I love most. The "no bueno" sentiment makes me chuckle only because I can hear my friend, Suzie saying this when we're chatting and I just roar with laughter. There are some really fun and funny sayings in this set and I think you'll really enjoy them.

Here are some items that are brand new (meaning not follow-ups) that will be stellar additions to your crafty collection.

Inky Flowers Stamps is simply gorgeous. I love that these little flowers appear to be hand drawn with pen and ink and I made sure to include some extra ink drips for good measure! I really like that we gave you two options for greetings here making sympathy cards and thank you cards simple and elegant. What's neat is that the small words included in the set coordinate with both main greetings allowing you to created a custom-colored sentiment. 

We liked the greetings in this set so much that I decided to turn them into word dies!!! Have a looksie! Aren't they pretty?

So Prickly Stamps are by FAR my favorite stamps in this release. I loved them as they were being designed but I just found them SO FUN to work with that I literally had to force myself to put them away. I love that you can stamp these cute little images in their pots and then add a little character by stamping faces and all the little extras I included for you. OMG - they're SO cute!!!!

AND, we thought that you would really enjoy a coordinating So Prickly Paper Pack. So here you go! This is a set of 12 loose sheets (not padded) in a 6x6 size which is perfect for card making. The set features a mix of cactus patterns in lovely colors which will match SO many of the colored cardstock you have in your collection. I found these super fun to work with and for only $3 they will make playing with So Prickly Stamps that much more fun!

So that's everything we're releasing this week. Here are a couple of projects I made to share with you featuring our Inky Flower Stamps and more.

I love how this card turned out. Sometimes, a girl's just got to watercolor..and heat emboss.....and die cut. LOL!!! My sentiment here was cut with the With Gratitude Word Die from craft foam and I love how it just stands out so nicely.

Here I also heat embossed my flowers but I've masked them off leaving a spot for my sentiment. See how I snipped off the "with" from the greeting die? VERSATILE!!!!! Then, I quickly, in 2 minutes, colored the centers of these flowers with Copics. I'm liking my layout here with my focal panel laying just above the fold and the bottom trimmed with vintage pinking shears. They belonged to my Grammy who I love just so very much.

I hope you like my projects!!!
