We have a larger than normal release for you this month. We will be introducing 6 new stamp sets, 4 new dies, and 2 new products over the next couple of days. Now don't worry, we still like our small and intimate releases, but we had a lot to share with you this month, so we're just gonna roll with it.

  • 8 1/2" x 11" 100 lb. heavy weight card stock
  • acid and lignin free
  • 15 sheet packs available in White, Kraft, and Oatmeal
  • will be available for purchase April 5th

I have been using and testing these for the last three months and it has completely replaced others in my stash. Be sure to stay tuned on full reveal day for complete details! Let's get on with the projects all ready, shall we?

Starting with the highly anticipated Damask Doilies. This is a delicate, yet bold, detailed pattern building set with sentiments appropriate for engagement, marriage, and couple celebrations.

This set is gorgeous! I knew I wanted to create a follow up set to Mehndi Medallions (as I can't seem to keep it in stock!), and decided to use some damask illustrations I created to create these doily images.

For this card, I started by stamping the large doily image in Regal Rose onto our Oatmeal card stock. I then added the smaller doily image also in Regal Rose. I stamped it off once onto scratch paper and then stamped it onto my focal panel without re-inking. Speaking of Mehndi Medallions, I stamped one of the medallions directly over the doilies and embossed it in white.

A simple banner and sentiment from Spring Post finishes this CAS beauty off.

Continuing on with that Regal Rose color, I decided to create a background pattern using several of the doily images in this set along with an image from Mehndi Medallions.

Here's a close up of that detail I was able to capture in this stamp. I always hold my breath while waiting for the prototypes to see if the designs translated into stamps they way I had hoped, and these do not disappoint!

The sentiment, also included in this set was stamped in Regal Rose and gray onto our White card stock. Another flat, mail friendly CAS design.

For my next card, I went with a background pattern again, but something much more simple on our Kraft card stock.

Our 1.75" circle from the Circle Stackers 1 die fits over the middle of the largest doily in this set perfectly. I decided to use one to highlight a butterfly die cut from patterned paper using our Layered Butterfly die.

Another banner with the "we are so happy for you" sentiment in black keeps this one simple with a bit of elegance.

Now let's move along from wedding, on to baby. Next up is Onesie Twosie and it's companion die, as well as Background Builders: Knit. Onesie Twosie is a fun graphic set centered around...wait for it...baby onesies! And of course, cute images and sayings to put on them!

But first, I want to show you a card and tag that uses the Onesie Twosie companion die by itself along with Background Builders: Knit.

This might be my favorite today, I love the colors and the way the large onesie die looks layered with the Circle Stackers 1 die.

For the card, I stamped the larger scale knit background across the center of the focal panel and layered the doily die, banner, and onesie die on top. I added a heart to the center left over from the large envelope from the Love Notes die. I added a sentiment from Damask Doilies to finish it off.

For the tag, I repeated the same thing and just switched out the sentiment. Babies are made with love, right?!

Next up, a simple, modern and graphic take on baby.

I stamped the small solid onesie onto the small onesie die cut and added a little star to the chest. I then used multiple sentiments from Onesie Twosie along with some from Super Star (more on this later this week) to create a little word art on our White card stock. I love how it turned out! And, there are plenty of sentiments you can switch out to make a baby girl one as well!

Speaking of baby girls...

Here I stamped the large outlined onesie onto our Oatmeal card stock in brown. To personalize it, I added the little tiara image and "princess" from Onesie Twosie.

I sewed this to a card base that I stamped with Background Builders: Knit in white ink. For the sentiment, I stamped "Welcome Sweet Baby" onto Kraft cardstock in brown ink.

That's it for me today. I have lot's more to share, so come back tomorrow to see more. But don't worry, the Design Team has lot's to share with you too.

Would you like to win Damask Doilies, Onesie Twosie, the Onesie Twosie Companion Die and Background Builders: Knit? Just leave me a comment by 9:00 AM EST April 2nd to enter. I will select one random winner from all comments. Winners will be posted here.

The fun continues tomorrow with more from this release and more chances to win, hope to see you then!
