June/July 2012 Release Day 3

It's day 3 of our June/July Release and we have one more stamp set and two dies to share with you. It's time to switch gears and think a little bit more rustic, a little bit more masculine. If you are just joining us, you can catch up here.
Today's stamp set is my personal favorite of the release, Fish More. I had the most fun I've ever had creating masculine cards with this set. And...it has coordinating dies!
Fish More
  • is a 6x8 clear photopolymer stamp set
  • contains 20 high quality photo-polymer stamps; 10 images and 10 sentiments
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $21
Fish More Companion Die
  • coordinates with the Fish More stamp set
  • four separate dies wired together that can be easily snipped and separated
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $8
We are also releasing another die for one of our previously released stamp sets, Guiding Light!
Guiding Light Companion Die
  • coordinates with the Guiding Light stamp set
  • five separate dies wired together that can be easily snipped and separated
  • will be available for purchase June 5th for $11
Fish More is a fun set that allows you to create custom vintage fishing lures, perfect for those angler's in your life! The sentiments range from birthday to retirement and anything in between.
For my first card, I've created an any occasion card for "Grandpa". For the focal image, I die cut one of the fish using the Fish More Companion Die and stamped him with his coordinating image. I mounted him on a Label Layers 5 Die cut that I stamped with the frame from Fresh Picked.
I added the little hooks and sentiments, all included in Fish More. This was all mounted on our Label Layers 2 die cut and adhered to our Kraft cardstock stamped using the woodgrain pattern from Woodgrain Silhouettes.
My next card is actually quite gender neutral. Because, I don't know about you, but I love to fish too! Actually, swap out the sentiment, and this would make one cute baby card.
I created the sweet little banner of fish, by die cutting several of the fish shapes and stamping them with their coordinating images. I adhered all of them to a few hand cut banners and strung them all together with twine.
I added the "Relax and tie one on!" sentiment to a label cut with our Label Layers 4 Die and stamped with the Label Layers 4stamp set.
OK, this next one is my husband's favorite! I couldn't resist breaking out the Cameo and creating a little fishing vest.
It turned out so cute! After all of the pieces were cut out, I inked all of the edges and put the pockets together. The little fishing lures were perfect to tuck into the pockets. And I even added a little stray line of fishing line.
You have to have a clothing label inside the vest, right? So I added a small solid accent fish and the "Work Less, Fish More" sentiment (both included in the set) to the inside.
I think I will have to make another one of these in pink as well. How fun would that be?
Now we get to revisit one of my all time favorite stamp sets, Guiding Light. I am so happy to be able to bring you all the coordinating dies for this set! Here I've used the small lighthouse, and stamped it onto the die cut included in the Guiding Light Companion Die.
I used the clouds from our Hearts & Clouds Die as a mask to sponge in my sky, and then added a sunburst from our Super Star stamp set.
Not only are these a great companion to the stamp set, I wanted to show you how lovely some of the images can look when used alone.
To create the background, I die cut several of the sand dollars and laid them out on a piece of Oatmeal cardstock to act as a mask. I sprayed the panel with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sand lightly, removed a few of the sand dollars and sprayed again. I did this one more time to get some graduation in the shades in the background. I added the Egret/Heron die cut and one of the misted sand dollars over a tag from Timeless Tags to finish it.
That concludes today. Tomorrow is the full reveal, and the big giveaway! But, right now you can head over to the Design Team's blogs to see what they have shared with today's goodies.

  13. I don't even fish...but these have to be some of the cutest stamps I have seen - and it's likely due to the charming and creative cards you have created! I am also thrilled by the lighthouse dies. That stamp set has been on my wishlist and it has now moved to the top (along with Shining Star because the rays of sun are perfect!)
