December Release 2015 – Day 2

december release badge

Hello and welcome, everyone, to Day 2 of our December Release!  Today we’re showcasing three new stamp sets and a couple of new dies.  If you missed Day 1 of our new release, you can check out the post here. We release two fabulous sets and ink! You will want to check out yesterday’s post!


teacup water

Tea Party, 4×6 Clear

This is such a pretty and super fun set! You can stamp the dainty teacups and the body of the teacups in different designs. If you’re feeling more creative or artsy, you can color the teacups by hand! I think my favorite part of this design was the handle, base and saucer rim are separate stamps so you can heat emboss these in gold to gild your stamped tea parties!

hug in a mug water

Hug in a Mug, 4×6 Clear

We like sending crafty hugs  to our friends and now you can send a hug in a mug with our new set!  It comes with several foam art designs and a teapot as well. You can stamp tea, coffee or lattes. We don’t discriminate around here because caffeine is caffeine is caffeine 😉

caffeine sentiments water

Caffeine Crush Sentiment Set, 4×6 Clear

We couldn’t not add a fun caffeine themed sentiment set to this release. Do these sentiments make you laugh out loud?

coffee word water

Coffee Word Die

We’ve also added a standalone “coffee” word die in a pretty scripty font that goes well with any of our coffee themed sets. Or whatever coffee sets you have in your stash.


These die cuts measure approximately 3 inches wide and 1.25 inches long at its widest point!

but first water

But First Word Dies

I included this die in today’s feature as well because they pair so nicely with our caffeine sets or with any set (like shoes 🙂 ).

All new release products are available in our shop now!

Next, check out some of the fun cards made by our design team. Enjoy the gallery!


First up is Emily with her gorgeous hanging teacup card! Her shading is just beautiful and those teacups look almost real, don’t they?


Ruby’s next card looks so photorealistic! She used Hug in a Mug to create a chic and modern table scene.


Eunji’s card is absolutely gorgeous.  She also stretched her stamps and her teacup into a gorgeous vase for her peonies!

Mayline’s stackable teacups are just adorable. When you have teacup stamps, you must stack at least once 😉


Keeway’s card is just rich in color and she makes the sepia, gold and reds work so well together. That steam seems real too, no?? Is anyone craving tea yet?

Jess‘ next card is a more modern chic latte card with her cool layout. I’m also totally loving the color combo on this card – pink and gray, yes please!


Vera’s stackable teacups are just so pretty! The depth to this card is just amazing. That doily was a nice touch, too!


Eunji created her own table setting with our Hug in a Mug set! I love the scene she created!


Emily also created a pretty table setup compete with a bouquet of wild flowers 🙂


Next is my card! I stamped the teacups repeatedly with our Noir Dye ink.  Then I stamped the insides of the teacup with our three shades of minty inks. I die cut the But First dies on the stamped panel and several times on white card stock. I adhered the word die cuts together and popped it up on the panel!


Ruby’s next card is dark and deep (the way I like my coffee!). I love the stark contrast she created with the sentiment! But always first, coffee.


Ruby’s next card is a pretty variation to there previous card. Tea, instead of coffee!


Emily’s card is encouraging, spunky and pretty all at the same time! You can do anything with just a little bit of caffeine in you.

Mayline’s next card is artful and bright. I love the teal and pink color combo she used with our Hug in a Mug set!

Jess‘ next card is just so pretty! I especially love the sequin steam details and the coffee color floral background!


Emily’s next cards are a perfect pair! I especially love all of the teal shading going on in here.


Eunji’s next card gets right to the point. Her hand stamped background is also genius!


I love how Ruby used her the Tea Party set to create a non-caffeine themed card.

teacup 2

Next up, I created two card using our Tea Party set. The focal point on these cards were the heart shaped rising steam. I stamped the steam in our new gray inks. I also blended the scallop panel using our green inks (Minted collection) and purple inks (Amethyst collection). I will be posting a video on how I made these cards soon!


Eunji’s next card is playful and simple yet super elegant! I love the dimension she created within the card!


Last, but not least is Emily card. I love how she matched her polka dot teacup to the subtle backdrop!
