Party Penguins on the Loose — Come On In to Join the Fun!

Stacey Yacula's irresistibly cute penguins are the star of the show in today's countdown post! In addition, a duo of character dies are must-have complements to an alphabet released a couple of months ago, while a suite of new stencil designs makes it easy and fun to get artsy on your cards. Stay tuned! We have so much more in store.

Are you ready to party? Stacey Yacula is an ideal party planning companion! Four perfect penguins and a table prepared to accommodate various accessories are featured to help you set the scene. In addition, the banner spanning between two of the party-goers will accommodate the perfectly placed letters in the PARTY and HAPPY sentiments — simply add your choice of lead-in and follow-up phrases to complete your greeting!

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.

This lowercase alphabet is an essential companion set to the original uppercase In Stitches Alphabet. Mix and match both sets for proper text-casing or simply to provide character contrast for a more graphic text-based design element!

This companion to the In Stitches Alphabet dies provides numbers and symbols to add even more versatility to your alphabet. This set gives you the option of emphasizing your greetings with the perfect punctuation and celebrating occasions in which numbers figure prominently, like birthdays and anniversaries. These 1” tall characters feature a neat line of stitching down the center of each die.

An easy-breezy improvised border makes it so easy and so enjoyable to create freewheeling watercolor elements on your projects. Ink blending allows you to customize your looks with precision (that no one would ever suspect was intentional!) for an artsy look that will complement scene-building and simple sentiment-based designs equally well. This trio of stencils also include the interior mask portion that doubles the potential of these versatile products.
