This has been such a fun week! Are you ready for a little more?
Our Pieced Chevron Die is so exciting to play with! It cuts this intricate frame just slightly smaller than your A2 card base. The best part is all the pieces it cuts at the same time: pieced chevrons, diamonds and triangles in two sizes. You can created chevron borders in different colors and patterns, use the frame as a card front overlay or use the other pieces for a million different things. You get real bang for you buck with this die! I LOVE IT! You can see projects made using this die by visiting our store page HERE.
Our Stitched Mats: Circles is a set of 7 nested dies and the newest addition to our Stitched Mats Collection which you've been waiting oh so patiently for! This set features an exciting new twist! Not only does it cut Stitched Circles in varying sizes but it leaves a a stitched lined around the negative of the die as well. It's an incredibly fun addition to this product. An absolute must have for your collection!! HERE is a link so you can see these dies in action!
I have been wanting to bring you tag dies for a very long time but I really wanted to do something unique and never seen before in our crafty little world and I think we've done that! These are really like little mini cards and tags all in one. Once you cut your Folding Tag, fold it along the perforated line! The front and the inside can both be embellished and they've been designed so that a gift card fits perfectly inside! I think they're fab! I like the Original with it's plain flap (or straight edge flap) because it can used for anything. But the Scallops are really cool because it just adds a bit of feminine!
Ok, so we're chatted about the next two sets but I have yet to show you them in action!! Let's talk about our Fanfare Scalloped Border Die!
This guy looks all sweet an innocent but it is a BEAST of a die! :)
Not only does it look fantastic alone but it really comes to life when you used several of them layered together. In fact, they neatly and perfectly layer together. I discovered I like using this die two ways; with the scallops open (all inside cut pieces removed) or solid without removing any of the inside cuts.
Have a look so you can see what I'm taking about....
Here I die cut five different colors/pieces and easily assembled them on a card front trimming off the over hang. This die is just under 5.5 in. long so that it can be used on a horizontal card perfectly or trimmed to be used on a vertical card.
This is GORGEOUS in person. What an effect this die makes layered and all the pieces intact! I just LOVE IT! The sentiment you see is from our Sentiment Flag Additions Stamp Set and tied off with some navy, hemp twine.
Here's a little ditty I made orientating the scallops upwards which also give this die a whole new look. I love this die cut in black. It's just so elegant looking. The sentiment you see here is from our Sugar Kissed Cottage set, Stirring in Lots of Love. The card is tied off with some fantastic neon green twine.
This die is really fun to play with and I just KNOW you will go crazy when you get a chance to work with it!
Now, let' switch gears and talk about our awesome Spot On Stamp Set!
A few months back we released our terrific Connected Circles Die and we thought it was special enough to deserve it's own stamp set! Each of these fantastically patterned spots stamp perfectly on to our Connected Circle Die. Some of our spots contain words and each word spot has a coordinating over-sized sentiment in the best font ever! In fact, you've seen this font before. We first introduced it in our previously released Darling Diamonds Stamp Set. Everyone went crazy for this font; designers, customers...so we did it again making these sets coordinating!
If you don't already own our Connected Circles Dies, don't worry! There are plenty of them in stock so you can take home both today. BUT, if you're eyeing the stamps - don't worry there are a million uses for them on their own and easily punch out with a 1 in. circle punch or even with our Stitched Circles! I am totes in love with this stamp set and I think if you check it out you will realize what a must have this is!
Have a look at some projects I've made with our new Spot On Stamp Set...
I just love how this card turned out. I'm obsessed with every single spot in the set from the zig zags to the scallops. It's AMAZING!!! And this was very easy to make1 I just stamped the spots over and over in some coordinating colors and punched them out with my 1 in. circle die. Then I stamped my sentiment on a scrap and trimmed it. Viola!
Here I used our Connected Circle Die! I stamped the zigzag pattern several times in grey ink but then the hb2u word spot in bright pink in and coordinated it with the celebrate sentiment! I love love love the slightly over sized sentiments in this set. I also used our Pieced Chevron Die here but cut it from vellum to create a softer, subtle look.
Here again are a couple of projects I've already posted this week featuring the Spot On Stamp Set....
