Good golly — look at these cuties! Giraffes have a lot of natural accessories going for them — the spots, the neck, the cute little knobs on their heads (called ossicones, in case you’re interested), but we’ve added glasses, ties, hats, and some scene-building options to make them truly joyful. Giraffes are the perfect choice for celebrating the big-deal friends and family in your circle — who among us wouldn’t be charmed by these adorable critters? Nab this set, and your cards will be head and shoulders above the rest!

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 carefully conceived all-in-one birthday sentiment set is intended to make it easy to add a pretty birthday greeting to your card front, followed up by a more comprehensive concluding thought on the interior. The exterior options feature a whimsical script font that will immediately catch the eye of your recipient, while the follow-up sentiments are heartfelt and rendered in a clean and classic sans serif for easy readability.

Candles = birthdays. They’re all you need to convey a birthday theme, and with this die set, your wish for the best birthday ever will come across loud and clear. Friends and family will love the bold look of these tall candles – add a sentiment, and you’re done! For ease of use and in effort to help you maximize your crafting time, Wish Big includes five candles, wicks, and flames for speedy cutting.

Stitched and layered flowers are always a hit, and we can’t wait to see what our talented customers do with this lovely set from Deane Beesley Designs. A trio of flower options is included — each featuring three or four separate layers — mix and match the individual elements for even more possibilities! Two leaves are also included to accent your blooms.

Don’t you just love the versatility of florals? They can run the gamut from soft and painterly to bold and graphic and, in some form or another, never go out of style. This paper pad embraces color and an exciting blend of scale and pattern. While flowers are the unifying theme, you’ll love having the option of mixing in one of three simple hand-drawn patterns that complement the various florals. The Wildflowers Paper Pad is an essential complement to the Stitched Wildflowers Die-namics as well, making it easy as pie to craft dreamy blooming delights for all your favorite people.

Our gift to you on our 16th birthday...this petite set is packed with birthday goodness. Each of the six birthday greetings pairs a charming typewriter-style serif font with a pretty script that highlights the best part of each sentiment. Say yes to this set (along with cake…always cake) for a delightful addition to your birthday stash you’ll reach for over and over again. While supplies last, every order placed once the release is live July 12 will receive Sweet 16 FREE!
