Hello all! Welcome to our first day of Stamp Highlights! We will start this series with these adorable cuties from Holiday Bitties. These iconic images sure brings in the festive mood!

Laura used the Scallop Tags Trio-Creatvie Cuts & the Falala Script-Creative Cut.

Look at all those sweaters on Amy's card, isn't is so cute! For the sentiment, she used the Oh Joy Halo Script - Creative Cuts

Our Holiday Bitties are yeti-sized too! Keeway created an adorable card with our yetis holding onto all the holiday goodies and used the snowflakes on her background!

Nichol created a little collection of Holiday Bitties against an inked background with a Falala Script Creative Cut and stamped and embossed Holiday

We love these little sweaters Thi made with pattern paper! They look so sweet paired with our Scallop Tags Trio and Dainty Bow Creative Cuts.

A sweet card by Vera!  Love how she framed the Holiday Bitties images with the frames from Flip Slider Creative Cuts in pastel colors.

INTRODUCING: Happy New Year Wishes + Holiday Messages

Last day of Intros today, and we're ending it with a bang! Lots of projects to show you! Such a fun release that it was hard to stop making stuff! So sad that our holiday release ends with this one for the year, I'm already dreaming of next year's holiday stuff. Can't help it, holiday cards are my most absolute favorites!

We've got Happy New Year Wishes by our friend Paola Esteron to start things off. Her hand-lettering is always so swoon-worthy, just can't get enough of it! Happy New Year cards are great cards to make to wish your friends and family a great start to the new year!

I used the perfect set to go with this - Party Animals! Come on, they're literally celebrating with a bottle of bubbly, can this be any more perfect? All those little confetti dots coming from the bottle look like a burst of celebration! I used a combination of a sparkly glittery pen and glitter Stickles to get that shine.

ME supplies used: Happy New Year Wishes (stamps available 10/15/2018), Party Animals (stamps and dies)
I went a little nuts with the new Holiday Messages stamp set. I had so many leftover finished images from the last release and thought it would be fun to mix them all together!

Here I made some cute little card/tags using Holiday Messages and some various Little Agenda products and Holiday Bitties. All these teeny stamps work so wonderfully together, I'm giddy with excitement for all you Little Agenda lovers! The frame is cut out with one of my faves - Instalove!

ME supplies used: Holiday Bitties (stamps and dies available 10/15/2018), Holiday Messages (stamps available 10/15/2018), Little Elf Agenda (stamps and dies), Little Santa Agenda (stamps and dies), Little Snowman Agenda (stamps and dies), Little Reindeer Agenda (stamps and dies), Little Bunny Agenda (stamps and dies), Little Dog Agenda (stamps and dies), Instalove (dies)
I wanted to show you a bit more of Holiday Bitties in this next card - I used the sweater image and used the smaller images that come with Holiday Bitties to customize each sweater. The curve clothes line was hand drawn. Sentiments from Holiday Messages finishes off the card nicely!

ME supplies used: Holiday Bitties (stamps and dies available 10/15/2018), Holiday Messages (stamps available 10/15/2018), Framed Tags - Park Avenue (dies)

Finally, my last card showcases the elves and snowmen from our last release. These were all leftover finished images that I had colored and cut. I decided, why not just use them all up. Or else, they will never see the light of day, lol! I used the super versatile Tri-Window Cover to create a template for my card -- half the card is basically done with these template dies! You just need to decorate after. I just piled on a bunch of the images and centered a cute little sentiment to finish things off. Quick and easy!

ME supplies used: Holiday Messages (stamps available 10/15/2018), Little Elf Agenda (stamps and dies), Little Snowman Agenda (stamps and dies), Tri-Window Cover (dies)

Here is a bright Happy New Year card by Angela. With the gorgeous handwritten Happy New Year sentiment and a splash of color will make the start of a new year quite fabulous!

Me supplies used: Happy New Year Wishes (stamps available 10/15/2018), Cityscape (dies)

That's a wrap from us! Our Design team has got loads more inspiration... starting tomorrow with the Stampede! Remember release is tonight at 12AM EST! Stampede tomorrow morning 9AM EST. See you guys! Thanks for joining us all week!


INTRODUCING: Let's Go Caroling + Falala Script CC

Hi guys, today we are looking at the Let's Go Caroling stamp set designed by our friend Luli Bunny! Her characters are always endearing and sweet and super easy to color!

I mean, how cute are these little guys singing Christmas carols together? I love the "grounding" pieces like the wooden bench and the lamp post, it really helps bring this festive scene together.

Also showcasing the new Falala Script die set. Our hand written word dies are a classic favorite around here, we're super happy to add this fun one to our collection. Falala Script and Let's Go Caroling works so nicely together, don't they?

ME supplies used: Let's Go Caroling (stamps and dies available 10/15/2018), Falala Script (dies available 10/15/2018), FT - Hug It Out (dies), Landscape Trio (dies)

Angela is on a roll with these shaker projects! She created a wintry white scene with Luli's adorable caroling characters.
