February New Release Hop Day 2

Welcome back, craft friends, to Day 2 of our New Release Blog Hop!

From the looks of it based on yesterday's comments and feedback, you are already loving these new release items and honestly, nothing makes me happier!!!!

Let's have another look today at the new items that have joined our crafty lineup.

Sassy Girl Dies and Stamps are fun. If you have a bestie or even a little girl in your life, THESE supplies will make the BEST birthday cards for them ever!!! 

While the die set can be used on its own, it really does come to life with the stamp set which not only includes some terrific sentiment stamps but some additional accessories stamps for her face and hair.

If you'd like to see what these dies and stamps can do when used together here a little preview and HERE is a link to a stamp and die index I created for you which you can print and store with your new supplies for reference.

It's been a long time since LID has released a set of just sentiments with the snark and sass we're known for. Sassy Pants is a terrific set with plenty of sass and spunk. I like that this set can be used for so many different occasions. For example, what about an anniversary card using the sentiment that says "There is nobody else I'd rather lie in bed with and look at my phone next to!" HA!!! Lots of other fun and funny sayings here great for get well cards, birthdays and more. It's a great one to have in your collection!

I hope that lots of you add our Snarky Shadow Hello Stamps to your collection!!!! I think these are FABULOUS. The main hello greeting is fun to stamp with its shadow stamp in different color combos and the sentiments are non-traditional yet funny and fresh!!!!  

 Our Dog Hugs Stamps and Die Set are sold separately, but you must trust me on this....if you're purchasing the stamp, really considering getting the die as well because this stamp set comes to life once you die cut around all the paws and the pups can hold little accessories. Gah! The adorableness is overwhelming!!!

The stamp itself is 5.50" wide so it fits the width of a horizontal A2 card easily yet leaves room to add a sentiment and you will love the sentiments in this set with a dog-pun theme.

If you're a stamper who makes cards from "all of us" like, the whole office or the whole family this is a great set too!

Need I say more? This Fabulous Word Die fabulously stands on its own and very nicely compliments some of the other items we're releasing this week and with a wee price point, it's a great one to snag and add to your collection!

I'm sorry if I sound crazy or biased even but every crafter on the planet NEEEEEDS our Cover Up Die: Mod Circles in their collection!!! It's that good!!!! I was inspired to make it based on a rug pattern I'd seen and it translates even better to paper.

Jennifer McGuire recently did a video on a Faux Layering Die technique and she 100000% inspired me to try that technique this with die. It's literally perfect for this technique!

HERE is a link to her video...go it and then come back I'll wait!! HA!! 


See how the center of this die can easily be trimmed down and out for layering?

Here are a couple of projects I made using this technique and I'll explain a few simple steps how I easily achieved this look using our new Cover Up Die: Mod Circles.

First, find at least three pieces of coordinating card stock that are in the same color family which go from light to dark. Here I've used (in order), Aqua Mist, Hawaiin Shores (Papertrey Ink), Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise (Stampin' Up).  (I hope I'm right about these colors. All my cardstock is together and I only ever purchase from Papertrey and Stampin' Up so it's definitely a combo between the two companies.)

I first die cut using Aqua Mist and set aside. The next two layers are the ones that will need to be trimmed down.

For your second layer, die cut and then trim off about 1/8 using a paper trimmer from either side of the center line of this die making two pieces. Adhere each piece to layer one making sure a little peeks through behind it. 

Repeat for layer three but this time, trim out the entire center line of this die and adhere again making sure some color peeks through. 

You don't have to do this but I adhered all three pieces together and then onto a fourth piece of cardstock that coordinated and I am obsessed!!!!!!

One more look so you can see how nicely the Snarky Shadow Hello Stamp and Die Bundle worked here. I stamped in black and then in turquoise for the shadow and heat embossed a sentiment in white onto a black strip that says "obviously you know who this card is from". AAAhahahahaha!! I love how this came together!!!

This is my favorite of the two probably because it's in pinks. Again I used four shades of pink here going from lightest to darkest and repeated the process. To dress this one up this time, I used a cat image from our Cat Treats Stamps which I love so much and if you don't have them get them because there is an image of two cute cats taking a selfie that makes me giddy! I used the party cat image and coordinated it with a sentiment from our new Sassy Pants Stamps. See how these stamps can just about be paired with anything? They say the cutest things AND I like that the fonts have a bit of flair instead of being flat.

Do you love these??? I do! So much! Don't you love when you make things and you're so proud of how they came together? It's the best feeling!!!!
