Made you smile!

Our first set reveal today is the latest addition to our KEY WORDS COLLECTION that features a “key word” that you can mix and match to build a variety of sentiments.

Introducing YOU MAKE ME SMILE, featuring the key word SMILE…

YouMakeMeSmile300

Here’s how you can combine the key word with the various other sentiments…

MixMatch

I had a lot of fun in the studio with this set.  It’s really easy to bring a card together in minutes using this set.  The best part about it is that I know these creations will put a smile on the recipients face!

My first card features not only the new YOU MAKE ME SMILE stamp set, but also the new DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts die that cuts out three different width wavy lines at once.

Smile1

I cut out the wavy lines in each color of the rainbow and then adhered them at an angle on my card base.  The heart is cut out with the large heart die from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set.

This second is just as full of color as the first (I guess that is what makes me SMILE), but with a few more layers…

Smile2

I stamped the key word SMILE in colors that coordinated with the pattern paper that I had chosen and then added the “happy looks good on you” sentiment along the side of the right panel.  The scallop edge was created with the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die (love this die!).  As a finishing touch, I added the white enamel dots around the sentiment…

As paper crafters, we are always making little gifties and cards for someone special.  From this idea, the new stamp set and coordinating Confetti Cuts were born.

Introducing, LABEL ME…

LABEL ME Confetti Cuts…

I have to admit, that these next couple of projects have been my favorite to create for this release.  Of course, give me another hour or two in the studio and that all could change!

First up is a card that isn’t just a regular card.  When I sat down with my notebook to joy down and sketch out ideas I kept thinking about doing a “tab tuck card” (YouTube tutorial video HERE), but I wanted to make it a little different than I had in the past.  What’s a girl to do?  I made a card on top of a card base…

BirthdayCard

In the above photo, you can also see the wavy line cut from the new DOIN’ THE WAVE Confetti Cuts, as well as the aqua panel stamped in stripes from the SO STRIPEY stamp set.  Yes!…the stripes coordinate with the stripes on the label stamp.  These are the things I think about when creating new sets.  Gotta love being able to coordinate and mix ‘n match your stamps!

The stars on this card were cut from the new OH MY STARS Confetti Cuts die set (featured yesterday) and topped with sequins and rhinestones.  The flag ended panels that you see are the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set.

I was having so much fun with these colors that I decided to keep them around to create these fun lil’ gifties…

Bags

In addition to the new LABEL ME stamps and Confetti Cuts, I used WHOLE LOTTA DOTS on the banner from the TAG ME Confetti Cuts die set, the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts die and the small heart from the LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts die set (adorned with a matching enamel dot)…

The Label Me Confetti Cuts die is the coordinating die to match the labels in the Label Me stamp set.

NOTE: Many of our die sets are connected by thin wire and may need to be released from each other. To do so, tin snips are best, but these can often easily be taken apart by a gentle hand. Rough edges where the dies were attached may be sanded lightly (careful not to sand the cutting edge).
