Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! It’s the third day of sneak peeks for our June Release and I’ve been having a blast showing off all the new summer products and sharing projects from our incredibly talented Creative Team. Today I’m giving you a glimpse of a really fun new line of dies that will add an interactive element to your cards — it’s called On the Right Track and you’ll see why as you keep reading. In addition to the track dies, I’m also excited to share two new Stamp & Die Combos with you!

Here’s a project by Kim Singdahlsen using this awesome Cutting Plate:
I love this card because it’s bright and cheerful, but also because it shows off what the Sunshine Cutting Plate looks like on a horizontal card. No matter which direction you orient you card, whatever you put in the center of the sun is really going to ‘shine’!
Here is another example of an On the Right Track – Basics card using another of the tracks included in this set!
Designer Jen Shults created this darling card using our whimsical Magical Day Stamp & Die Combo. I love how she has the little dragon flying through the sky on his track! You’ll notice that Jen used the negative piece from the track on the first layer of her card to camouflage the track beneath. It’s an easy and clever way to ‘hide’ the track within the scene.
Next up is the On the Right Track – Build a Scene die set:
This set was designed with our popular Build a Scene dies in mind as the tracks fit perfectly with the Build a Scene Rolling Hills and Mountain Tops sets. Here’s an example from designer Kim Singdahlsen:
She used the Mountain Top to mimic a giant wave and die cut the coordinating track along the edge of the die cut Mountain Top. Doesn’t this card make you giggle?
I love these dies so much, I can’t resist showing off one more example, this time from Kerri Michaud
I just love how both designers took the same products, but created two fabulous cards for two completely different seasons! Here, Kerri used the same Mountain Top and On the Right Track die, but went from summer to winter!
Now let’s switch gears a bit and get into some stamping! I’ve got two new Stamp & Die Combos to reveal today so let’s dive in!
Did you know that Canada is celebrating its 150th ‘birthday’ this year? Our Canadian friends are among our dearest and they are the inspiration behind our new Busy Beaver Stamp & Die Combo! Check out this card by Jean Manis:
I love how Jean created her own little Canadian flag using our Little Bits – Hole in One die! How clever is that? The ‘Eh?’ at the end of the sentiment is a nod to our friends in the north. And the punny little sentiments that are included make this a great set to use year-round for friends around the globe.
Here is a look at Busy Beaver:
Next is a project by Kerri Michaud that you won’t want to miss:
One of our most popular dies is our Matchbox die set and we’re always looking for more ways to use this super fun die. So I’m doubly excited to reveal our Tooth Be Told Stamp & Die Combo! This stamp set can be used to craft a ‘tooth fairy’ matchbox to hold a child’s tooth as they await the tooth fairy to swap it out for a little cash. *grin*
Designer Kerri Michaud created this tooth box and it’s exactly what I had in mind! I love the happy tooth and the sentiment fits perfectly inside the box. This is a project that you can do with your child or grandchild and makes the loss of a tooth even more special. The set also comes with several other images that make really sweet cards for your kids and grandkids, too!
So that wraps up our new products for June! What’s been your favorite thing you’ve seen this week? I hope you see something that inspires you to get creative! And before you head out for the day, I have one more Question of the Day and a chance to win one of our new products before you can buy it!
Today I’m giving away the On the Right Track – Basics Die Set!
I had my wisdom teeth removed during one of my winter breaks in college and it was one of worst experiences of my life as I ended up getting dry sockets. Can we all agree that tooth pain is horrible!? I’m definitely glad that’s in the past! So do you still have yours?
