XOXO - The Stamp Market December Release Blog Hop

Welcome, Friends! Are you just as excited for this hop as I am?

You know that feeling when you're squeezing your favorite furry friend, or looking through rainbows of art supplies...or eating a really, really delicious treat, and you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? 
Well today is that, times a million! Why? It's been SO hard to keep this from you...But I'm so thrilled to announce that I will be joining the insanely talented creative team at the The Stamp Market!! 
How is this even possible?! Somebody pinch me..Please!

And what better way to celebrate than sharing the gorgeous new release with you all.
You might have seen the sneaks popping up on TSM's feed already...Aren't they so pretty!?
I've actually made a pile of pretties, so today's projects are just a few of a bunch to come...So be sure to swing by tomorrow to see more. 

Today I'm trying out a Clean and Simple look. 
I always LOVE Amy's take on CAS, and how modern and boutique-y her designs are...So I'm giving it a go!

My first card is a super fun way to showcase the new Heart and Hugs die. It's absolutely, positively adorable! I love that it fills up the entire card front and leaves enough space for bold sentiments inside. 

It also comes with a fun 'hugs' and 'xoxo' die, which I've used here.
For  the rest of my sentiment, I used the new You're My Bestie set, which is SO cute! And just a touch of fussy cutting.

For my next card, I wanted to show how easy it is use the Heart and Hugs die set for a heap of versatile designs. Here, I die-cut the xoxo die in various colors, and aligned them on an angle (well, more like eyeballed! lol) 

The itty bitty hearts are from the Heart Confetti die set.

For my next card, I used one of the shaker dies, as well as the new Love You die, to create a negative vellum overlay shaker, and I just love it. It looks so soft and wispy irl.

To make this card, I started out by stamping the sentiment onto my card base. I color blocked - which I typically don't enjoy doing - but the size of these letters makes it easy.
I also adhered some pink hearts all around (cut with the Heart Confetti dies).

I then made my shaker using the new Shaker Card frames, which make the shaker making process so quick and easy. I filled my shaker with the beautiful new Crystal Confetti, which really packs a punch. It's triple the size of most confetti packs, and it consists of three sizes. Also, the sheen is absolutely gorgeous, and doesn't have a tint, which means it will go with every color in your stash :)

I finished off my shaker with my vellum overlay wrap. I heat-embossed some dots onto the vellum, and then used the Love You dies to cut out a negative of the sentiment, then wrapped it around the card.

Have you picked out a favorite/favorites from this release yet?
I love all the stamps and dies, but if I had to pick, this is mine:

A shimmer that can be added to any watercolor medium, including your TSM ink refills. It's sooooo sparkly and gorgeous, and I love how versatile it is. A little goes a long way, so it will last a long time. I can't wait to show you what I've created with it!
