Laura Jane created two beautiful tags with our Christmas Poinsettia set! I love the variety she created with the same stamps!

Now onto the stamps!


Folk Art Florals Background Stamp, 6×6 Red Rubber Cling

Our first stamp debuting today is our new Folk Art Florals Background Stamp.  I wanted to create a cute repeat floral pattern so I came up with this folky print that you can emboss or stamp and then color with any medium.


Born Classy, 4×6 Clear Stamp Set

Our  next set is one that is close to my  heart as I love anything that has to do with fashion.  Our Born Classy set takes stamping to another level as you can basically design custom gowns for this chic lady with the different gown elements included in the set.  I was still very much obsessed with the show, The Bachelorette, when I designed this set so I just HAD to include a rose for our classy lady making this the perfect companion set for our next stamp – Plus One.

Our classy lady measures approximately 1×4 inches at her widest points.

Coordinating dies will be available on Monday!



Plus One, 4×6 Clear Stamp Set

Our much anticipated Plus One set serves as the perfect date for our Born Classy and Haute Wedding gals. This set comes complete with an array of cocktails, sunglasses and even a skinny tie. Our Plus One guys measure approximately 1.5 x 4.5 inches.

Coordinating dies will be available on Monday!



City Girls: Retail Therapy, 4×6 Clear Stamp Set

Our next set is also fashion themed with some City Girls who are all set for some Retail Therapy!  Create fun street fashion themed cards with the first set in our new line of City Girls stamps.  The largest stamp in this set (woman holding boxes) measures approximately 2 x 3.5 inches at its widest points.  The taxi measures approximately 3 x 1 inches. The smaller trio of ladies measure approximately .5 x 2 inches.

Our next two stamps create the perfect backdrop for you scene building cardmakers!

Coordinating dies will be available on Monday!



Scenes: Dept. Store, 4.5 x 5.75 Red Rubber Cling

Our Dept. Store background stamp features a chic Parisian Boutique department store front. Use this stamp as the backdrop for our City Girls: Retail Therapy set.


Scenes: Grand Stairway,  4.5 x 5.75 Red Rubber Cling

Our Grand Stairway is another installment in our Scenes background stamps.  This cling stamp can be used as the backdrop to our fashion themed stamps or can be stamped alone and “furnished” to create a complete card.

We finally have some new basic word dies in a gorgeous scripty font.  Our new word dies can be used for many occasions.

The die measurements are as follows (approximate):

  1. Hello:2.75 x 1 inches
  2. Hugs: 2.5 x 1 inches
  3. Happy: 3 x 1 inches; Birthday: 3.75 x 1 inches
  4. Thank: 3.25 x 1 inches; You: 2.5 x 1 inches
  5. Congratulations: 5 x .75 inches

Now that you’ve seen all of our new products for today, please enjoy the gallery of inspiration created by our amazing design team!


For my first card, I started off by heat embossing our Folk Art Florals background stamp. Then I colored in the flowers, buds, leaves and feathers with zig markers. Next I created a two toned sentiment die cut using our new basic word dies and Light Gold burnished Foil Tape.  I added some additional interest to my stamped panel by adding stitching to the edges with the largest dies from our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the panel onto a top folding A2 card base and then adhered the two toned sentiment in the center of my panel.  I finished the card by adding some Medallion Gold sequins in 10, 8, 6 and 5mm sizes.


Here’s a closer look at some of the word dies from our Basic Word Die collection. hello-sample


All dies will be available on Monday, September 26!


Mayline created an elegant card with our Haute Wedding Dress gal.  I love her custom gown with our Folk Art Florals print and that subtle Grand Stairway backdrop.


Tae Eun’s lovely watercolor wash emphasized our Folk Art Florals print splendidly.  The garden rose outline was the perfect accent to finish off her card. 14380035_1024954004268984_487662769027870416_o

Laura Jane created a shaker scene with our Grand Stairway background stamp.  She used the stamp itself as the focal point of her gorgeous project.  Did you also notice the subtle Folk Art Floral wall paper? Amazing!14409556_1024089071022144_2493261806349750751_oLaura Jane’s next card is fun and pretty and brings springtime to the forefront of my thoughts.  The rectangle stitching and foil accents give Laura Jane’s card more interest!14444669_10154615150159216_5421774938855235732_o

Vera’s also created a pretty and fun Folk Art Floral printed card.  Her selective coloring and glitter accents make the card pop just a little more for a perfect and pretty card!


Tae Eun created a brilliant glitter spotlight for our Born Classy lady.  The stage is perfectly set for this chic singer!


Jenny’s next card is a perfect scene with her Born Classy gal all ready for a night out on the town!14352141_789268787668_2683646822007128325_o

Emily’s striking watercolor card emphasizes how perfect our Plus One set is for masculine cards. She also shows that this stamp set is perfect as a standalone. 14362615_1658531477793931_6457815469707026473_o

Mayline perfectly paired her Born Classy gal with a Plus One for a clean and simple but super elegant anniversary card. That vogue skyline is a perfect silhouette for this couple!


Next up is Eunji’s adorable fashion themed card created with our City Girls: Retail Therapy set. Her bright colors make for such a fun and festive card. 14311289_1152041191534637_5635801609538715065_o

Tae Eun used the same stamp from our Retail Therapy set but offset her stamp with our Dept Store scenes stamp to create a dreamy “shop till you drop” scene. 14352555_1658531481127264_4669800204728109856_o

One can never have too many shoes!  Mayline is a woman after my own heart with this card.  Her repeated stamping creates the perfect base and focal point from our Retail Therapy set. 14372113_789268747748_278790879267547817_oEmily’s next card is the perfect combination of pink, black and chic gray! 14379980_10154616976529954_7038685158340019924_o

Jenny also created the perfect shopping scene with our Retail Therapy and Dept. Store stamp.  Her scene is complete with the tiny, adorable pup!14380151_1025111810919870_8413500046338103112_o

Laura Jane created the perfect picture taking scene with the elements from our Retail Therapy set.  Who doesn’t love balloon flying pugs? 14424742_1658533041127108_8557763536210997011_o

For Mayline’s next card, she created a perfect street scene. I love how she contrasted her ladies with the subtle backdrop of the department storefront!


Next up is my card! I stamped the Dept. Store background twice (once in Caviar ink and another gold heat embossed for paper piecing purposes).  Then I proceeded to color in the black stamped dept. store scene with copic markers.  Next, I took the gold embossed image and selectively colored in the shrubbery, awnings and upper horizontal pillar. After I finished coloring those pieces, I fussy cut them out and popped it up onto my black stamped image background.  Then I stamped the individual Retail Therapy elements in our Caviar hybrid ink (copic friendly) and then die cut the images.  I added a strip of black cardstock in the middle of the cobblestone street to create an asphalt street.  Next I popped up the Retail Therapy elements to create a scene – I’m not one to create many scenes (florals are my specialty) but I give major props to those scene building cardmakers! Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment on a separate piece of cardstock and popped that up at the top of my card.



Last but not least is Vera’s card!  Her retail therapy card is perfect and adorable and comes complete with her sidekick pug!
