Hey, crafty friends! It’s Taylor here today and your summer is about to get sparkly with this week’s new release! I am so excited to bring you a collection of fine flake loose glitters in colors to match our most popular rainbow of cardstock and ink colors. Plus, we have an exciting product to make glitter application even easier… it’s called Glitter Grab and it’s a paste designed to apply through a stencil, sprinkle glitter over the top, and the grab keeps it in place! You’ll be glittering all the things this month – from popsicles, to ice cream, to sparkly shades!
The Creative Team and I have been busy creating new projects with the summertime goodies from this release which includes 24 new products; new stamps, dies, 2 new Stencil & Clear Combo sets, new On the Block & Building Blocks collection additions, our exclusive glitter in 10 (!) new colors, and our new Glitter Grab paste!

In the video below, I’ll be sharing how I used our new Sweet Scoops Stencil & Clear Combo to create these two mini slim cards. The Stencil & Clear Combo features stencil strips to create a strip of smaller ice cream cones (right) and a larger set of 4 3″x3″ stencils to create the larger cones (right). A clear stamp set is included to add the detail to the base of the cone and dimension & sprinkles for the scoops of ice cream. The possibilities are endless when you stack the scoops or use the coordinating dies to cut them out!
This quadruple scoop ice cream cone is something my husband, Jon, would love! Except that I topped it off with mint chocolate chip ice cream as he’s not a fan of mint or chocolate. For this mini slim card, I used the larger ice cream cone stencils to create the stacked cone. I started with the cone base stenciled in Toffee ink and continued with the partial stackable scoop stencil in Lollipop, Candy Corn, and Pineapple. Then I used the full scoop stencil in Mint Julep with mint chocolate chips stamped in Mushroom ink.
The stencil strip in the set spans perfectly across the mini slim size. I used a little bit of masking paper and my Bitty Blender Brushes to create the scoops of ice cream in rainbow order across the card panel. Then I used the topping stencil strip and applied the Glitter Grab with my Nuvo Media Spatula. Before the Glitter Grab dries, I sprinkled glitter in colors that coordinate with the scoop of ice cream. I hovered a piece of paper over the top of the Glitter Grab while sprinkling each color of glitter on the individual scoops. Make sure you check out the video to see this in action. I was pretty happy with how it turned out and it was much easier than I thought it would be!
The cherries on top of the small ice cream cones are from an old package of Doodlebug glitter sprinkles. And I used the new Mini Strips – Hello Summer stamp and coordinating Mini Strips die for the sentiments.
Now that I’ve shared my project, it’s time to settle in and take a peek at all of the new Summer & Glitter release products along with inspiration from the TE Creative Team!
Let’s start things off with the new Stencil & Clear Combos – you saw the new Sweet Scoops Stamp & Stencil Combo set in my video above!
Ice cream and popsicles are definitely a summer staple and you’ll love adding them to your projects using the new Sweet Scoops and Anything’s Popsicle Stencil & Clear Combo sets. Each set includes the option of a line up of smaller images as well as a larger image to use as a focal point on your projects. These combos are perfect for using with your Bitty Blender Brushes to build the images and then add details with the clear stamps. You can also cut out the images using the coordinating dies. Each die collection includes a die that will cut out the whole border of smaller images at once and one die for the larger image.
Jill Hawkins used the Sweet Scoops Stencil & Clear Combo set to create this sweet summertime card. She stenciled the smaller ice cream cones in pastel tones, added details with the clear stamps, cut them out with the coordinating die, and arranged them in a circle formation on her card. I love the bit of sparkle that she added to the top of each ice cream cone using Pearl glitter – it makes them look good enough to eat! The sentiment on the card is created with the newest Building Blocks stamp that you’ll hear more about shortly!
Mindy Eggen added frosty popsicles to this pair of cards using the large popsicle from the Anything’s Popsicle Stencil & Clear Combo set. The popsicles are stenciled in a rainbow of colors and Mindy added the frosty look with Glitter Grab and Pearl glitter. I love the different striped background looks that Mindy created: using the 1/2″ Stripe Stencil Set for the card on the left and cardstock strips for the card on the right. The sentiments on both of the cards are from the newest Mini Strips stamp that I will share more about in just a bit!
This line up of sweet summer popsicles is created by Emily Mydlowski. She stenciled the smaller popsicles from the Anything’s Popsicle Stencil & Clear Combo set in a rainbow of colors, stamped the popsicle details with the clear stamps, and added shimmer to the tops with Glitter Grab and Pearl Glitter. I love the heart details that Emily added using a stencil strip from the Stencil Strips – Love set to add the heart border under the popsicles and the white hearts from Bits & Pieces – Hearts set in-between each popsicle. You’ll learn about the sentiment on Emily’s card below!
We’ve got you covered for summertime sentiments with this next group of products:
We’re adding to the On the Block collection with the new On the Block – Cool stamp and coordinating On the Block – Cool Shadow die. The sans-serif block letters slightly overlap and are not perfectly aligned, adding a whimsical charm to the word.
A perfect companion to the On the Block – Cool stamp is the new Building Blocks – Cool Additions stamp. This new Building Blocks stamp includes 22 words and phrases that work perfectly together to create sentiments for patriotic cards, tags, and more. Cut out all 22 words and phrases with one pass through your die cut machine using our innovative alignment guides and the coordinating Building Blocks die.
Stamp 10 sentiments that celebrate all things summer with the new Mini Strips – Hello Summer stamp. Use the sayings individually or combine them together for more possibilities! Cut all of the sentiments with one pass through your die cut machine using our innovative alignment guides with the coordinating Mini Strips or Mini Strips – Asymmetrical dies.
The colors on this ‘cool’ card by Latisha Yoast just scream summer to me! She stamped the On the Block – Cool stamp multiple times with an ombre look by inking up the stamp with Lollipop, Candy Corn, and Pineapple inks – mini ink cubes work great for doing this! She cut out the ‘cool’ words with the On the Block – Cool Shadow die and added them to a Pineapple card base. The ‘hope your day is’ sentiment is from the Building Block – Cool Additions stamp and is stamped in Oreo Ink on Sugar Cube cardstock. I love the glittered strips that Latisha added at the bottom of her card using 1/4″ sticky tape with Lollipop and Candy Corn glitters.
Looking at this card by Kavya puts me in the mood to grab a floatie, a sweet summertime treat, and some shades to enjoy a lazy afternoon in the pool or at the beach! Kavya created the scene with waves cut out using the Build a Scene – Rolling Waves dies and Ray of Sunshine Cutting Plate die. The sentiment is put together with the On the Block – Cool stamp (+ coordinating die) and Mini Strips – Hello Summer stamp – I love the glittery sunglasses that Kavya added over the ‘o’s in the ‘cool’ word! The sweet treats are stenciled and stamped using the Sweet Scoops and Anything’s Popsicle Stamp & Clear Combo sets.
The Clearly Crafty Shades of Summer stamp set features a pair of sunglasses along with five different lens fills and sentiments for perfect summertime vibes! Cut out the sunglasses or die cut your frames with the coordinating die collection.
Create a coordinating background full of sunglasses with the Sun’s Out Background stamp and then use the coordinating Sun’s Out stencil to fill in the lenses using blender brushes, glitter paste, and more! Cut out the stamped sunglasses from the background or cut out tiny frames with the coordinating die collection.
This summery line up of sunglasses by Melody Rupple has me dreaming of the beach! She cut the frames out with the Shades of Summer dies and coated each of them in a different glitter color: Peapod, Cookie Monster, and Oreo. The lenses on the sunglasses are stamped with a few of the different patterns from the Shades of Summer stamp set and then Melody lined them up on a background stenciled with the Here Comes the Sun stencil. She finished off the card with a sentiment accented with a cute stamped palm tree!
How fun is this summertime card by Arjita Sepaha Singh? She stamped the background of the card with the Sun’s Out Background stamp and then added the shimmery lenses with the coordinating stencil, foil, and Glitter Grab (it’s not just for glitter!) The larger sunglasses are cut out using the Shades of Summer dies and I love the lenses that Arjita colored in with Copic Markers after stamping the palm tree pattern from the Shades of Summer stamp set. Arjita added the sunglasses to a Pierced Tag Stacklets 2 die cut along with a fun summery sentiment!
Sparkle up everything on your projects using our TE glitter in 10 new colors! This fine flake loose glitter is available in Lollipop, Cherry Pop, Candy Corn, Peapod, Cookie Monster, Jelly Donut, Pearl, Silver, Gold and Oreo. You’ll also find it available in our previously released Sugar Cube.
Add glitter to your stenciled projects and more with our new Glitter Grab! Apply this paste through your stencils and then sprinkle glitter over the top to sparkle up your favorite patterns. Glitter Grab also works perfectly for heat foiling techniques!
Emily Mydlowski added several of the glitter colors to the cute little popsicles from the Anything’s Popsicle Stamp & Clear Combo set. Once the popsicles were stenciled and stamped, Emily used Glitter Grab stenciled at the top of a few of the popsicles to coat them with glitter: Lollipop, Candy Corn, and Peapod. She arranged the popsicles above the sentiment created with the On the Block – Cool stamp (+ coordinating die) and a phrase from the Building Blocks – Cool Additions stamp.
Heather Nichols glittered up a few sweet sherbet ice cream cones on this fun birthday card. She stenciled and stamped the smaller ice cream cones from the Sweet Scoops Stencil & Clear Combo set, added Moon Dust Stickles glitter gel stenciled on the top of each cone, and sprinkled a bit of colored glitter on each one to coordinate: Peapod, Cookie Monster, and Candy Corn. She added a background to the card stenciled with the Superstar stencil, added strips with sentiments from the Mini Strips – Hello Summer stamp, and finished things off with a few glittered stars cut out with the Starstruck dies.
