Good morning! It’s a rainy Tuesday in mid-April and new stamps might be the last thing you were expecting from TE today. But we all love surprises, right!? We are simply bursting at the seams with so much sweet new rubber that we couldn’t fit it all in during our regular monthly release. So today we’re excited to bring you the mid-month release of 3 new stamp sets: Labels of Love, You’re my Type Lower, and You’re my Type Upper. And if that isn’t exciting enough, these new sets were designed to coordinate with Spellbinders dies and everything we’re showing you is available for purchase TODAY (hooray!! no waiting!).

Today the Baker’s Dozen and I also want to send a huge thank you to Spellbinders who generously provided us with a Grand Calibur die cutting machine! I’ve had lots of fun experimenting with my new tool and the super large Grand dies and I’m super excited to show you what I’ve made with all of these wonderful goodies!

Here’s the Labels of Love set that I designed for the *te* collection and to coordinate with the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3 dies. There are 31 frames, images, and sentiments made from the highest quality deeply etched rubber all packed into one versatile stamp set! Each of the frames can be used in conjunction with one of the three ribbon tags from the Ribbon Tags Trio set of dies from Spellbinders or stamped separately.

I made this simple card using Labels of Love and supplies from the Hello Luscious card kit. The ink colors I chose are Colorbox Warm Red, Colorbox Lime Pastel, and Memento Rich Cocoa. It was super quick and easy! The only things that I used that weren’t part of the card kit are the wooden button and the thread to tie the bow.

Here are the new You’re my Type sets! These are the first alphabet sets that we’ve ever offered and I am loving them! The alphabets and numbers are the perfect size for so many uses, but today the Baker’s Dozen and I are pairing them with the Spellbinders Nested pennants & Lacey pennants. I also decided to try out my new Grand Labels 4 on a scrapbook layout of my newest nephew:
I started by gluing squares of patterned paper from the Basic Grey Life of the Party collection onto a sheet of Choice Buttercream cardstock. Then I taped the largest of the Grand Labels 4 dies to the quilted section and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The large cutting surface is great for using with the Grand dies, but also comes in handy for cutting several dies with one pass through the machine!

After cutting out the large quilted piece I used it as the focal point for my layout. I stamped the letters in the background by leaving them all in place on the storage panel and using that as my “block” to ink and stamp them in various parts of the background. I used the Spellbinders Lacey Pennants and trimmed several of the smallest size from Choice Buttercream cardstock. Then I stamped and embossed the letters of his name onto coordinating colors of cardstock and punched them out with a 1/2″ circle punch (which coordinates perfectly with both the upper and lower stamps).

And as a special offer to celebrate our mid-month release both the NEW Nested Pennants and the NEW Lacey Pennants are 30 % off while supplies last! That’s just $13.99 for each set of these popular pennant dies!
