New Die Sets Plus Winners!

Our newest die sets are super versatile sets that you’ll reach for all year round. They’re great for holiday card making, but they have some awesome elements you’ll use again and again all year! Fran made some great samples with these which are shown in the video below. And our Design Team has been playing with these and others all week. Check out their links.

First, Christmas Bright  includes a couple of small clear stamps, nesting cutting die words which will look great out of your favorite paper patterns or cardstock colors, a bow to duplicate as many times as desired, and nesting ovals which will be awesome for so many everyday uses!

DCP1008 Pop Up Stages Die Set

Our new birds from the Cling Spring Tweets Stamp Set are chirping to pop onto a spring project and with the January catalog release, we have products to develop that creative idea!

Cling Spring Tweets Stamp Set has lovely little birds who are ready to nest amongst flowering tree branches in oodles of different arrangements and layering them is easy with the coordinating shapes in the Spring Tweets Cutting Die Set. So easy you will want to make a flock of these little darlings.

New Pop Up Stages and Spring Tweets!

maxresdefault

Our new Pop Up Die Set is setting the stage for some exciting pop ups in columns and platforms! Use Pop Up Stages with any type of stamped and die cut or hand trimmed shapes like images from Family Home, Pretty Poppies, and Spring Tweets stamp sets.

Pop Up Stages dies are so versatile as separate pieces you can use a single column die to make a flower bouquet pop off the background as on Debi Hammons beautiful card here.

Pretty Poppies Pop Up by Debi Hammons

Using two or more column dies will create varying depths for a fun scene. Add the tab die anywhere for a popping greeting!

DCP1007 Build A Wreath Die Cut Set

Are we ready for some fresh fall designs? This week our team will be sharing some of their fantastic designs like the new Build A Wreath Die Cut Set in our July catalog release. There are so many wonderful ideas with this die set! Create a fall colored wreath for place setting cards or an invitation card. It would also be a fantastic wreath around a gift bag or jar. We like Debi Hammons card that is ready for the perfect sentiment as a last minute card for any ocassion.
