Sweetest Safari from Stacey Yacula features the cutest baby animals you ever did see! Set 1 includes a darling zebra and elephant making their way in the big, beautiful world. A tree and pair of grassy plantings serve as both comfort and cover — perfect for an afternoon snooze or game of hide-and-seek.

A pile of newly raked leaves is so enticing. That colorful, crunchy explosion of leaves that a running leap can produce is one of the most fun activities of the season AND makes the chore of collecting and bagging them all just a little more agreeable! Pile of Fun features a trio of playful pups along with an autumnal beauty in boots and a jacket — all ready to partake in this classic fall tradition.

The coordinating dies are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our dies lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

A magnified view of the characteristic veining you’ll find on close inspection of a leaf provides a unique new pattern option for your fall-themed cards and tags. Tone-on-tone stamping will provide subtle interest, while a complex network of heat embossed lines will add a real WOW factor to your projects.
