It's Release Day! And Giveaway time :)

Welcome to release day!

We are beyond excited that the new release finally hit the store - YAY! Orders are already rolling in :)


In case you missed our latest post - here's a closer look at all the fun new products!

3 clear stamp sets: 
(well, 5 - but they only differ in language) 

• When you're not around / Wenn Du nicht da bist




• Time flies / Die Zeit fliegt





• Funky Feathers







4 Cling stamps!

• Balloons in the sky (15 x15cm)



• Sophisticated shells (11 x 15cm)




• Woodgrain (15 x 6,5cm)



• Under the sea (11 x 6,5cm)


2 stencils 6x6" :

 Concentric circles


• diagonal grid




Of course we have more inspiration for you:

 Anika created a super vibrant card using under the sea. Her background is perfect for thos (amazingly colored!) jellyfish from Glowing seaside. And the colors she used for her inkblending.... SWOON!






Here's a more classic card by Samantha. She used the diagonal grid  stencil for a quick and easy background. it's subtile and drws the exe to the focal point!



The next card by Nicole is similar, yet different. She used different cool cuts dies to embellish the card and the sentiment. I love how she added some buttons as flowers! I have never done that but sure need to try!




I also have a bunch of cards for you:

Card #1 is different from my usual style - I mostly use bright colors on fun clean and simple cards. This card has a vintage feeling (but I still kept it simple). The crocodile from When you're not around is somewhat cure, don't you think? I used the Color your Polka Cling stamp for the background and stamped some hearts unto the circles. 




Let's get back to bright colors! the  woodgrain background is perfect for every style to add texture to your backgrounds. in this case I used different products from the July release as well. I thinks the ombre woodgrain in the back adds a lot to this card.



What about a whimsy clock as a fun focal point on your card? Time flies offers you so many options to create your own clock / alarm clock :) I also used the starry night cling stamp for my background. subtile but fun!



Did you know that I am a HUGE Laura Bassen fangirl? I adore her! So when she said in one of her videos that she's been a sucker for monkeys from her young years I new that one day I would make a monkey. And when the set with sad critters came to my mind I knew this would work. That's the story of this cute little monkey (the sentiment says "come back soon").





I can hardly believe that this is the second vintag-y card in one post. But the lose tone on tone watercoloring on the sophisticated shells background works so well for a classy, elegant card. the die cuts from the pocket tag are the perfect match.




the last card is a bright one again. The funky feathers make just the perfect background for bird-images. I love to create my own patterned papers with solid stamps. So. Much. Fun. and you can pick your own color combos - so what's not to love about that?




Now this has been a HUGE pile of products and cards. We hope you enjoyed.

Let's get to the giveaway-part now.

We'd like to give away a 15€ gift code to one lucky winner :)


to take part in the drawing please:

• take a close look at the release and pick your favorite detail.
• leave a comment including one sentiment wording  (not a general type of sentiments) that you think we should make a stamp of.

the giveaway is open until sunday 6pm CET, we will draw a winner Sunday night :)

Good luck!
Have a great day!

  1. It's such a fab release! My favourite product is the Time Flies stamp set, and therefore I also love the card made with it for inspiration (although all cards are truly fab!). I just love that it's almost "catch up" o'clock - very cleverly designed! I have recently received a lot of crafty happy mail from my crafty friends, and I'd love a "Crafty friends are the best!" sentiment - so here's my idea for one! :-)

  4. Ich hoffe es ist ok das ich auf deutsch kommentiere. Ich mag das Set "Wenn Du nicht da bist", weil es mal was ganz anderes ist...und eigentlich sooo vielseitig.Sei es für Freunde die man lange nicht gesehen hat, die Liebe die wo anders wohnt...oder sogar die Kondolenz...Außerdem kann man es super colorieren.
    Ich würde es toll finden wenn es mal einen Stempel gäbe mit dem Spruch: " Kauf es dir selbst "

  5. I like the funky feathers most and ordered them already. I think they would look great if they are embossed in gold or silver.

    I would like to see an set of stamps saying 'get well soon'. Maybe with a bouquet of flowers.

  7. Fabulous release, the stencils really got me here, they are really fantastic! The sentiment I would ask is - "You don't get older, you just reach new heights". This is a fabulous birthday sentiment!

    I love the whole new release, but the little Crocodile is simply stunning!

  16. ALL the cards are absolutely stunning! Great job, you all, and what a great release!
    My favourite though, is the "Glückwunsch"-card.Loved the colors and the dies. Really elegant. What really cought my eye was the background stamp. I would probably not have thought about getting the stamp if I hadn't seen it on this card.
    A really nice sentiment for baby cards is "Your first breath took ours away"

  18. My favourite is the Balloons in the Sky background stamp! I've been looking for something like this! Thanks so much! As for new stamps, I make a lot of cat cards so I would LOVE to see a set of cat pun sentiments that haven't already been done elsewhere. Here are the ones I'd like to see: "Whiskering you a Great Day", "You're Purr-ific!" "Have a Meow-valous Day!", "You're a-meow-zing!", "Purr-fectly Sweet", "To a very special purr-son!", "Meow and Forever", "Hope your birthday is purr-fect!", "Meowy Thanks!". Now I've given you lots of my ideas so you're all set! I have more if you're interested...

  19. I absolutely love the clock face. It reminds me of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. I would love to see stamps with quotes from the movie.

  20. I love the balloons stamp! It is my fave :)

    I would like a sentiment set with "I miss you" "you are a great friend" and this kind of things for fiends. I recently moved and I miss my friends, and I need those kind of sentiments :)

  21. I love the 'Even chocolate won't help when you're not around' sentiment in that set!! I also loved Anika's card so much I put Under the Sea on my wishlist!!
    I've always wanted to see a stamp set with a snail on a turtle's back saying 'Whee!' and "Progress depends on your perspective"

    ReplyDelete
  22. All these cards are
    so pretty and fun to
    look at. I love the
    Funky Feathers set.
    How about "Everybody
    remember where we
    parked" sentiment?

  24. I love "under the sea" and the cute card made with it. I would like go see a sentiment "thinking of you".

    ReplyDelete
  25. cool stuff and so nice to see i did spot the balloon background stamp properly ;-) haha, love the feathers

    ReplyDelete
  26. wonderful release. It's hard to pick favorite. The woodgrain stamp is great.
    For a sentiment, I would love something sympathy card related. Like "In our hearts".

  27. I would absolutely LOVE to watercolor those wonderful shells!!!
    Date(night) - both for "new" and "old"couples.

    Thanks for awesome inspiration from you and your fantastic design team!

  28. What a lovely release! I love the shells, the balloons, the feathers and the stencils! Actually I think I love them all!😍 I would love a sentiment stamp
    to say "With love & appreciation", "Keep up the good work", "Your kindness is contagious" "From a friend affar" 😄

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great release. I like the new stamps and really like the new stencils. I would like to see a set with a big Smile and then verses to go with it like "Smile and leave a little sparkle wherever you go" or "Smile... you are loved" or "I Smile when I think of you" etc.

  30. My favourite from the release is the woodgrain background and the balloon background set but the stamd are super adorable too! I love the ink blending and colours on the first card! I think any kind of encouragement sentiment is always great to have like hang in there or fingers crossed or I knew you could do it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the crocodile tears. The sentiment I wasn't to see is "fondly". I often write "thinking of you fondly" other phrases that work with thinking of you, like "and giggling", "and remembering that time when..."

    ReplyDelete
  32. These are all fantastic, I especially like Nicole's card with the diagonal grid background, its just beautiful. I too love the buttons she added.
    My fav. set is When you're not around. (There aren't enough get well sets available for my liking.)
    The sentiment I would like is: I love you to the moon and back!

    ReplyDelete
  33. My favorite from this release is the feather stamp set, and particularly the fact that (it looks like) the feathers can be stamped with one color for the outline and a second color for the inside =)
    My favorite part of a card from this post is the gorgeous pink and orange jellyfish next to eachother on Anika's card - that's such a pretty and striking color combination!

    A wording/sentiment that would be fun for a sentiment that I can think of: "Wherever you are, be all there" (perhaps for a travel/vacation themed set?) or "Creativity is contagious - pass it on" (for an art/crafty themed set)

  34. I loved the feather stamp set and both stencils...
    I wuld like to have colouring images with cute critters with pun sentiments...

    ReplyDelete
  35. The new products are really beautiful and so are all the cards, but I got really inspired by the sophisticated shells'card.Therefore I would say that this is my favorite item of the new collection.
    My favorite sentiment is: "Stay positive. The darkest nights produce the brightest stars" (by John Green)

  36. Congratulations on your new release!! All products are amazing as well as DT creations. My favorite from this release Sophisticated Shells. :o)
    For sentiments I would love to see quotations from Dalai Lama. :o)
    "Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible."
    "The purpose of our lives is to be happy." :o)

    ReplyDelete
  37. The balloon background is my fave because it just looks so packed with cheerful balloons which makes we smile :)! The sentiment I would like to see in a stamp is " Make every day a day to remember"

    ReplyDelete
  38. The new stamp sets are just amazing!! I love the clock face to me that's just amazing I've never seen anything like that before.

    As for a sentiment i would like to see in a stamp set are. "Life is a roller coaster"

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow! Such a great release!!! My favourite from this release is the When you're not around stamp set! That little crocodile is absolutely adorable like all these cards!!! Yesterday while I was reading a Colin Dexter's book I was very impressed by these words "Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards", a Kierkegaard's quote. And I think that this is would be one sentiment I would like to see the most in a stamp. Thank you for this amazing chance!

  40. Fabulous release, love the wings in Time Flies! I would love a stamp [& die] of the word Gorgeous. I've been looking for this & haven't found it yet, maybe a brushscript that would be fabulous gold embossed. Fabulous is another great word :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Such a nice new stamps. I just love that crocodile. So sweet.
    I just made to cards for my kids first day of school and I just notice I don't have sentiments for this type of cards. SO I would love to have something special for school, like: have fun! or Ich hab dich lieb! or I am so proud of you. You know, something to tell them that we are there any time, to have fun, and do their homework.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ooohh so many great stamps and stencils!! I love all the cling stamps and also Time Flies is my favorite.
    I would love see some punny love sentiments.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow! So many wonderful products and lots of inspiration! Balloon background stamp caught my eye! As for the sentiment I'd like to see "'Twas the Night Before Christmas"!

  44. Was für ein tolles Release! Ich kann mich kaum entscheiden, was mir am besten gefällt. Deine gestalteten Hintergründe finde ich sowieso immer spitze.Das Set "Wenn du nicht da bist" hat es mir diesmal besonders angetan. Der Hintergrund mit den Herzchen gefällt mit total gut und die Motive im Set sind zu schön. Den Spruch "Och nö" im Set finde ich klasse! Ich hätte gerne ein Stempelset für Kinder: Sowas wie "du schaffst das", "gib nicht auf", "Hab einen schönen Tag!", "Du bringst mich zum Lächeln", "das hast du gut gemacht"...... Vielleicht für kleine Nachrichten in der Frühstücksbox
