A Die-namic May Release Hop & Shop

Good evening all!  I am THRILLED, seriously THRILLED to pieces that tonight is finally here!  We’ve been working behind the scenes for MONTHS is preparation, and I am so glad it all came together so beautifully. There is truly so much in store for the May Release that I don’t know where to begin!  Everything is listed in the Brand Spankin’ New category, which is live right now! Here’s a quick run down of all that’s new: New Stamp Sets Top Shelf WTG Top Shelf Sentiments Clearly Sentimental about Babies Rainfall Flopsey PI – Best Medicine PI – Beach Bum PI – Lather Rinse Repeat Meet Emma & Wyatt Jolinne – Heart on a String Little Loveosaurus Fred Bear Has a Birthday CS about Fathers New Triple Scoop Set Thanks a Bunch Die-namics Cloud Trio Die Jumbo Scallop Die Scalloped Scallop Die Die-namics Accessories Necessary Neutrals Felt Collection Outdoor Essentials Felt Collection Banana Split Felt Collection My Favorite Cork Top Shelf Ribbon Collection WHEW!  I’m exhausted just thinking about it! Tonight I wanted to use my Meet Emma & Wyatt set (was there a question?) and with MUCH back-seat cardmaking from Emma, created this little ditty. You might notice the little felt flower on the bottom, and I wanted to show you how I made it using the Jumbo Scallop Die-namics Die and our new GORGEOUS Wool/Rayon felt! I ran my felt through my Hello Kitty Big Shot using the normal stack for thin dies. Once it was cut, I made a slant cut of the scallops so that as I rolled my flower, the smaller part would be the flower inside, and the higher parts would be the outside petals. Next, I started rolling the felt, and positioning it into petals. As I got to the end, I tucked the outside piece inside. Once I had it rolled, I plopped the bottom down onto a glue dot (thanks Jo!) so that it would all stick together. Here’s a close up of my finished felt flower!  I added a Summer Glittered Garnish for the center.  I love how fun and easy it was to create and see a LOT of these in my future! A WORD ON DIE-NAMICS: When the Die-namics we have on hand sell out, we will start a PRE-ORDER.  The remainder of your order will ship immediately, and your Die-namics will ship as soon as we get them in stock, which should be between 7-10 days max.  We are working closely with our manufacturer to make sure those Die-namics are in your hands as quickly as humanly possible! Now, next up on this amazing Hop is the uber talented Julie Dinn!  I can’t wait to see what she’s got up her sleeve….  Make sure to leave a comment at every stop, you never know who has hidden candy!
