Going Postal!

Today is our last fabulous Sneak Peek before the PJ Party tonight , the release of all this good stuff and our Blog Hop tomorrow to celebrate!  

This last peek is with a great new set of dies called Square Stamps.  With this awesome set of dies you can create all sorts of postal themed fun.  



I did a little mixed-media playing with these dies, cardstock, vellum, felt and embossing paste to create this postage themed card.  I cut the inside of the dies with vellum and embossed the sentiment from our Sending You set inside, and added a sweet little felt heart in the center.  I attached that to two strips of cardstock that I had used a Falling Hearts Stencil (Simon Says) and embossing paste.  Then a few lines of felt hearts and a bit of washi tape finish it off.  



All those hearts together are so sweet!  

Here’s a peek at how fun these dies are.  As you can see they all incorporate stitched edges and can be layered together or used separately.

Tonight is the Pajamas Party at our Facebook Forum...hope you can come by for fun games, and even more new sneak peeks.  


Here’s the Cat Pack with great inspiration ahead!

Oh, Christine, I love this adorable card with the postage stamps and the little hearts with sending you happy hellos - love it! And what a really great die set. But the stamping on vellum is clearly what has delighted many of us, I see. Just love it and love the great design (as always)! Loving this new release! Hugs, sweet friend!

This is amazing Christine. The texture is just great and that wee bit of black is just everything.
