Hey, crafty friends! It’s Taylor here! As a cardmaker myself, I know something as simple as pre-trimmed and pre-printed panels can make card-making so much easier and more enjoyable. So today we’re bringing you some of my personal favorites that I’ve been stocking in my own stamp room; pre-trimmed A2 & mini slim layer panels, pre-printed Simple Strips, and some of your favorite Stamp & Stencil combos turned into pre-printed foilable panels! Speaking of Simple Strips, we’ve also updated our Simple & Mini Strips sticker collections to label the side of your Simple Storage boxes. And while you’re at it, grab one of our Simple Strips dies at a discount (while supplies last)!

Right now through Sunday, August 8th, all Simple Strips dies are 15% off. Collect all four die styles: Simple Strips, Simple Strips – Well Rounded, Simple Strips – Asymmetrical, and Simple Strips Backer. Use these dies with the stamps in the Simple Strips collection to cut out multiple sentiments at one time with one pass through your die cut machine Use the Simple Strips Backer die to cut out the perfect sized banners to layer behind sentiments cut out with the Simple Strips die.

I’ve been in need of a few thank you cards and these came together really quickly with the help of our pre-printed toner panels and the Best Bud layering stencil. Check out the video below for tips on heat-foiling, stenciling with our Bitty Blender Brushes and more!

Note: I always foil first and haven’t had any issues when applying ink over the top of the foiled design. I have found that if you’re attempting to foil AFTER applying ink that the ink application does change how the foil adheres to the toner printed portions. Pro tip: Foil First!

These cards were easy to finish off with the Oh My Word – Thanks stamp and coordinating die. I kept the pre-printed Simple Strips – Everyday Occasions black as I like the pop it provides for the card.

Here’s a closer look at the new products in this week’s release:

Many of you have asked for our Simple Strips sentiments in reverse and here they are! Simple Strips in Reverse – Everyday Sentiments is a set of 10 pre-printed panels that are toner-printed on 100 lb. Sugar Cube cardstock so they can be used with a foiling machine or heat laminator, if desired. The 18 sentiments on each panel are reversed from a back background. Use the innovative alignment guides with any of the Simple Strips dies (Simple Strips, Simple Strips – Well Rounded, and Simple Strips – Asymmetrical) to cut out all of the sentiments with one pass through your die cut machine.

Introducing three new Foil It packs that coordinate with a few of your favorite combo sets: Butterflies Stamp & Stencil Combo set, Best Buds Stamp & Stencil Combo set, and Full of Flowers Cling & Clear Combo set. Each Foil It pack includes 12 pre-printed 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels printed on 100 lb. Sugar Cube cardstock. The sheets are toner-printed and can be used with a foiling machine or heat laminator to add shimmer and shine to your card projects!

Creating the perfect panels for your card fronts just got faster and easier! Instead of spending time cutting and trimming panels for your cards, stock up on the new A2 Layer Panels now available in packs of 50 in Sugar Cube cardstock, Toffee cardstock, and Oreo cardstock. The pre-cut panels measure 4″ x 5.25″ and you will have a 1/8″ border on your card when the panels are added to an A2 card front.

Add Mini Slim sized cards (3.5″ x 6″) to the faster and easier category as well! Stock up on the new Mini Slim Layer Panels now available in pack of 50 in Sugar Cube cardstock, Toffee cardstock, and Oreo cardstock. The pre-cut panels measure 3.25″ x 5.75″ and you will have a 1/8″ border on your card when the panels are added to a Mini Slim card front.

Our new Simple Strips II and Mini Strips II Simple Storage Stickers are sets of pre-printed labels with the names of all of our Simple Strips and Mini Strips stamps that have been added since we offered the first set of sticker labels (Simple Storage Stickers and Mini Strips Simple Storage Stickers). They are sized perfectly to adhere to the side of the Simple Storage for Simple Strips cases so you can categorize your sentiments by stamp and find the strips you’re looking for at a glance.
