First off, Jillian here! I created a really fun card using both the Merry KISSmas stamp set and the Merry Mistletoe die set! These are all so much fun, and there's so much you can do. I love how this release works together, and I'm absolutely obsessed! I cannot wait to play more and I cannot wait to see what you all do with these. 



I used Wow Embossing Ink and Wow Opaque White embossing Powder for my sentiment.

Tech Week Day 4-

Hey y'all! Shelly, here!
Happy Friday!!


Today is Day 4 of Tech Week! Yay! :) Hopefully you've been checking out things for the new release each day?!...If not, you may want to start at 'Day 1 of Tech Week' so you don't miss anything! :)


Great News! 
You may preorder starting on August 13th through August 18th and shipping will begin on August 19th.  All orders during that time will receive FREE Shipping. You may place more than one order during that time and we will ship them together! We also have a VIP Special of all the new release items that is at a 20% discount and will also include FREE shipping!


Without further ado, here are my cards...and tag.


I wanted to do something that would be simple and quick for mass producing. So using the Rustic Wood Slice die, along with the Headline Numbers die and Merry Mistletoe die made things so easy. ;) 


Merry. I had some fun with the new Headline Type dies and chose do spell 'Merry' for a fun Christmas card. I used some inks to do a little ink blending for my background and then spritzed a little bit of water here and there. To top things off, a touch of jewels. 



I went really CAS with this one. I used the Merry Mistletoe die as a stencil and then added some embossing paste to it. After I stamped on a sentiment from the Merry Kissmas set and added a tiny strip of green cardstock at the bottom. To give the mistletoe a little extra 'pop' I had some shimmer to it. (Which I apologize that it can't be seen...that shimmer is always a challenge to photograph.) 


Lastly, my final card. I stamped on the acorns from the Autumn Pumpkin set and then did some coloring with colored pencils. After I added a sentiment and called it good. ;) 

That's all my projects for today. Now for the giveaway...

You have a chance to win the Headline Type and Number sets!! How fun is that?!! :)

Tech Week Day 3 - Merry & Bright



Good morning! Ardyth here with two colourful Christmas cards using some of the goodies from the upcoming release!



How are you enjoying Tech Week so far? It started on Tuesday, so if you haven't seen them, make sure you view previous posts from this week so you can get a look at how we 'Set Designers' are using all the new goodies!

And be sure to check out the other information (including VIP pricing and how to pre-order and get free shipping!) HERE. There's a Rafflecopter giveaway below - be sure to follow the instructions to enter!

My first card uses the new Headline Type alphabet die set (there are matching numbers, too!), the Just BeClaus stamp set and the new Checkerboard coverplate die.

I simply cut the coverplate from white cardstock and used liquid adhesive to attach it to a white card base. Then I used the thinnest die from the previously-released Sentiment Strips die set to create some contrast and draw attention to my colourful sentiment.

I embossed a portion of a Merry & Bright sentiment from the new Just BeClaus set on one end of the strip. I used WOW! Bright White Opaque powder.

I cut the letters for Merry 3 times from white cardstock and stacked them up for some dimension. I blended Catherine Pooler ink on each of them, fading up toward the top. 

Then I glued the letters to the black sentiment strip, using the die cut grid in the background to help me keep them straight.

For some sparkle, I coated each letter with Star Dust Stickles.


My second card uses the Checkerboard coverplate but this time I trimmed it to fit on a  4.25x4.25 inch square card for a different look.

I cut 3 trees from the Sweet Gingerbread Add On die set and I trimmed them at different levels to make them 3 different sizes. I used the 'berry' die from the Merry Mistletoe die set to cut 6 little ornaments all at once, from red glitter card stock.

And I used that Headline Type alphabet again to cut my sentiment from the same red glitter cardstock.

Tech Week Day 2 - Pumpkins and Poinsettias!

Hello, hello!  Are you enjoying Tech week so far?  Rosemary here today and I know that I am!  There are so many fabulous new stamps and dies being released that will take you through the fall and in to Christmas!    Just check out all the goodies in the graphic below.   And since this is a new release there are prizes to be won!  Just enter below through the Rafflecopter widget to win the Autumn Pumpkin and Elegant Christmas stamp sets!   I have one more thing to share... if you place a pre-order for any thing from the new release through August 18th all your items will ship for FREE!  YAY!!  All orders will begin shipping on Monday August 19th.  There is also a VIP package that consists of all the items in the release that can be ordered at a 20% discount and free shipping!  Let the ordering begin, lol!


I have two cards to share today that use the Autumn Pumpkin and Elegant Christmas stamp sets.  Just a little note if you already had the Poinsettia Greetings stamp and die set you can use the die with this new set as well!  YAY!  Both of these sets are large 6 x 8 stamp sets and are full of gorgeous images and sentiments.  First up is my card using the Autumn Pumpkin stamp set.  I used the trio of pumpkins image and did some no line watercoloring using distress inks.  This was my first time trying no line watercoloring and I have to say that I am pretty darn pleased with how it turned out!  Once the image was dry I die cut it with my tried and true Stitched Dot rectangle die and then stamped the sentiment using VersaFine CLAIR Acorn ink.  Because I didn't want to cover up my coloring I actually split the image by masking off portions of it and stamping it in the opposite corners.


I also did some watercoloring on my second card, but this time I embossed the poinsettia image in white and then colored the image with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I also tried something a little different by coloring the leaves gray instead of green.   Once I finished coloring the flowers I added a light wash of blue all around the flowers.   I finished off the card by embossing the sentiment in white on a vellum strip that I wrapped around the card front after I die cut it with the largest Stitched Dot rectangle die.


I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects.  Don't forget to come back tomorrow to check out what Ardyth has in store for you!

I used the beautiful new Merry Mistletoe die set to create and mistletoe to hang from the roof of my Christmas Chalet. I started by blending a couple of panels of Neenah Solar White cardstock using a few Catherine Pooler Inks. I blended a panel with Grass Skirt and Seafoam and then flicked some water onto the panel and splattered a bit of watered down COPIC Opaque White. Once dry I cut the four mistletoe branches from the new Merry Mistletoe die set.

Then I blended another panel with Coral Cabana and Rocket Red for my bow and berries. Once again I  flicked some water onto the panel and splattered a bit of watered down COPIC Opaque White.The snowy roof line from the new Sweet Christmas die set was cut with sparkling white cardstock. The background was blended with It's A Boy and Stone Blue Catherine Pooler Inks onto a panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock which was cut to 5 1/4" x 4".

The snowy rooftop with the mistletoe hanging on it was glued to the background panel and then I stamped a sentiment from the new Merry Kissmas stamp set at the bottom in black! The panel was adhered to a white card base with foam tape for a bit of dimension. Five berries were randomly added to the mistletoe keeping it an odd number to that that design looked balanced.

Have a look at the lovely texture you can get just from cutting all the pieces of the die from ink blended cardstock!
