This is a fabulous addition to our layered stamp sets and will come with a color printed layering guide with your purchase. **If you own the MISTI, this set will be a piece of cake to stamp 🙂
Petal Cut Peonies Standalone Dies
Our new Petal Cut Peonies are standalone dies and are the first standalone dies in our collection. These dies do not coordinate with any of our existing sets.
The next four sets are from our Tiny Sentiments Cling Background collection – Tiny Hello; Tiny Thank You; Tiny Birthday; and Tiny Congratulations. The sentiments are in a handwritten font and make adorable and subtle backgrounds!
Tiny Hello, Cling Background 6×6
Tiny Thank You, Cling Background 6×6
Tiny Birthday, Cling Background 6×6
Tiny Congratulations, Cling Background 6×6
For our last stamp set for today, we have our Marvelous Cling Background stamp. Then sentiments are in an bold and edgy handwritten font.
Marvelous, Cling Background 6×6
Whew! Now that we gone through the new sets, here are some fabulous samples. Enjoy the gallery!
First up is Mayline! She created a beautiful floral border with our Fresh Cut Dahlias. The sentiment is from a set that will be debuting tomorrow. Check out her blog for more details on how she created this bright and beautiful card (don’t forget to leave a comment on her blog and the other DT members’ blogs (Ruby and Jess) to increase your chance of winning today’s Release Week giveaway for the day).
Next up is Jess with her bright and peach dahlias! Her ink smooshing is totally on fleek and matches the colors of her dahlias so perfectly. Check out her blog for more details on her projects for the day.
Next up is Ruby with her pretty pink dahlias in centerpiece vase. Doesn’t that look like a real glass vase with her beautiful shading? How gorgeous!!
For Ruby’s next card, she combined yellows and pinks to create this super fun card! That ombre background compliments the dahlias so nicely!
Next up is my dahlia card! I chose purple shades because I usually always end up stamping pink florals so I changed it up a bit. As always, I had to include some gold (washi).
Mayline’s ombre border of peonies is so unique and fun. She uses our new Petal Cut Peonies to go around the entire border to create a striking card in bright colors!
Mayline’s next card is similarly striking as she continues to use similar colors for her die cuts. The Petal Cut Peonies are offset with a subtle background created with our new Tiny Thank You cling background stamp.
Next is Jess with her eye-catching kraft and red card using our Petal Cut Peonies and Tiny Hello background stamp. The color combo of this card make it a perfect masculine card! The sentiment is from a set that will be featured tomorrow.
Next up is my card where I used the Petal Cut Peonies and Marvelous cling background stamp to create a modern graphic looking card! I die cut several of the dies cuts and adhered them together to create my own embellishments for this card.
Next, Ruby created a gorgeous, giant balloon shaker using our new Happy Birthday background stamp. Isn’t it edgy, oh-so-girly and pretty all at the same time?
Next is my card which features the new Tiny Happy Birthday cling background stamp. I stamped the background stamp first in pink and yellow ink and die cut balloons out of those panels. The handwritten sentiment in the bottom right corner is from a set that will be featured tomorrow.
For our last card of the day, this is a gold shaker card that I made. I stamped the Tiny Congratulations cling background stamp on a card panel in gold ink, clear heat embossed the background and then die cut each star. For the shaker part of the card, I die cut the star windows and filled the with Light Gold bugle beads and Mini Gold star confetti.
I hope you enjoyed our gallery for the first day of our Release Week! Make sure to leave a comment on this for a chance to win a stamp set of choice for our Release Week Giveaways. Leave a comment on each Design Team’s coordinating blog posts (Ruby, Jess, Mayline) to increase your chance of winning the giveaway.
