Teaser Time: à la modes – Something’s Fishy

Welcome back to our second day of Teasers for our mid month release featuring two à la modes, and our upcoming VIP Kit!

The new stamp sets, and the VIP Kit will be available this evening beginning at 10pm EST.  Remember the VIP Kit is a limited availability, one day only offering, so I advise shopping early if you’d like to take it home with you!  After that, the new Who’s That Girl stamp set will not be available until our February release…

Just a reminder that the a la modes are our cling rubber line of stamps. Here’s the 411 on these fun, flirty and fabulous girls:

- Each set is produced in the USA using the highest quality rubber, with the deepest etch possible.

- Each image and sentiment is backed on cling foam and scroll cut, making it ready for stamping right out of the bag!

- Packaged in a clear hang bag, we’ve also provided the ideal storage solution by including a thick laminated header card in each set that can be used to store the stamp set, in its entirety, after purchase.

So, lets take a peek at the newest à la modes: Something’s Fishy! She’s an outdoorsy, yet fashionable little thing, look at those cute wellies.  Of course we’ve designed this set with several clever matching sentiments – I’m sure you’ll see a variety of them on your tour through the participating designers blogs.

Be sure to hop around to visit with the listed designers, and then we’ll see you tonight at 10pm for our VIP Hop and a little shopping too!

Teaser Time Day Five: Let’s Get Physical

At long last, it is Tuesday, January 4th! Which means that tonight is our HUGE new Release beginning with our New Release Cocktail Party beginning at 8pm EST on Splitcoast Stampers on this thread!  All the new stamps and Die-namics will be available beginning at 10pm EST. We’ll also kick start our monthly Shop Hop this evening at 10pm EST. It is a great chance to have one last gander at each of the stamps and Die-namics dies before you finalize your orders!

Then again, if you’re a TLC Member, you’ll be able to shop beginning at 9pm EST!  Want to learn how to join the Tub Lovin’ club and shop an hour early? You’ll find all the information here!

Our last set of Teasers today will focus on the newest Who’s That Girl: Let’s Get Physical.  This stamp will get a workout (…sorry I couldn’t help myself…) by all of us working on New Years Resolutions, in training for a big charity run (…or walk…) or even to show support for our “running friends.” We’ve all got one of those right?

Die-namics Teaser

I have two new Die-namics teasers to share with you today. I’m sure you’ve seen these amazing dies as part of the designers daily previews, but today lets take a little closer look!

Our new Rosette dies will help you create beautiful, precise rosette flowers with ease.  The Rosette dies come in two different score-spacing sizes: 3/8″ or 1/4″.  The score lines being closer together, creates a tighter accordian fold, and more flat rosette.  The 3/8″ score lines provide a more full rosette.  These dies only SCORE lines in the paper.  They do not cut or have a perforated score line.  This allows for a clean and polished finish product.  To make one flower, simply roll the die through twice, accordian fold using the score lines as a guide, and adhere the pieces end-to-end, creating a “loop”.  Flip one side in toward the center, and your rosette will form.  These are fun, trendy, and add pizazz to any paper creation.

Now that you’ve seen what the Die-namics look like, how about a video that I’ve put together to show you how to create these fabulous rosettes.  You can find the Die-namics Rosette Tutorial Die-namics Rosette Tutorial on YouTube.

Teaser Time Prizes

Now that you’ve had a peek at the newest stamp teaser, and had a moment to drool over the new Rosette Die-mamics, how about some PRIZES!  Each day, two stamp sets are up for grabs, and your chances at being one of the lucky winners increase each time you leave a comment on one of the blogs of our participating designers.
