Day 3 today which means you get to see some of my absolute FAVORITE new sets -- maybe EVER!! Throughout the Baker's Dozen, we'll have peeks of 2 new full size sets plus 3 new A La Carte stamps!
First up is ANIMALS IN LOVE A LA CARTE-- I have the new set PANDAS IN LOVE! Can we all get a collective AWWW.... Last year, TE introduced Elephants, fish, flamingos, owls, scotties, snakes, turtles, and whales... along with the full size set Animal Love Sentiments. Customers loved these, so we've added 3 more! These are great for Valentines or to show your love all year round! I also think these would be great for some of the calendars you can create too! We're also running a SPECIAL!!
If you buy one of the 3 new Animals in Love, you can select any one of the 8- 2011 Animals in Love for Free!
For my pandas, I also used several of the new dies including the medium layering doilies die. These will be available individually or discounted for the whole set of 3!! I also used the Jumbo Heart Border die and leaves from the Rosy Posey Die set for under my rolled felt flower. The papers are We R Memory Keepers Love Struck and the sentiment is actually from Buddy Bear (introduced yesterday).
One tip- To get my blacks EXTRA dark on my stamp, after I stamped, I used a black copic marker and carefully colored over the darkest areas to deepen it!
My second card uses the new set-- and my personal favorite of the release - Love Monsters - Are these just the cutest, silliest, most awesome little monsters ever?!? These will be great for the kids and the kids at heart! Lots of cute sentiments so pretty much everyone can find a use for these little guys! Full size set includes 19 images/sentiments. I just loved the morning coffee sentiment... Starbucks and I get along JUST fine in the morning... so I could totally relate! I used the same papers - We R Memory Keepers Love Struck and added an accent from the Hearts A Plenty die set.
My last project is just a really simple idea you could use for Valentine's Day class treats. I used the new Heart Favor Box die along with the third set I'm introducing called TOTALLY TAGS Valentine. This is a new set of tags to coordinate with the Totally Tags Taylored Dies…great for all sorts of cards and treats for Valentine’s Day and beyond! It's a full-sized set including 9 large tag images.
Here are all the dies I used:
