Todays’ video featuring a few of the TE Exclusives and new coordinating products is from Emily Leiphart. Watch below to see how Emily created this trio of cards:
In the video, Emily shares a closer look the Ring Around the Words die collection and coordinating Building Blocks – Ring Around stamp. Each of her cards feature a sentiment put together with these products. The Ring Around the Words dies are cut out from different colors of cardstock and Emily stamped and embossed the Building Blocks – Ring Around stamp a few times on several cardstock colors and cut out the words and phrases with the Building Blocks die. Emily created three different cards with the sentiments and a select color combination.
Here’s a closer look at the cards that Emily shared in the video:
This card features the ‘wish’ sentiment and Emily added it to a background that she created with the Easy Strips dies. I love how she linked the ring onto one of the strips at the top! Make sure you check out the video to see how Emily matched the angle perfectly for the strips at the top and bottom of the card!
The Rays Pierce & Cut Plate is the perfect backdrop for the ‘love’ sentiment on this card and I love the touch of glitter that Emily added with an additional gold glitter cardstock die cut offset underneath. A few heart embellishments are the perfect finishing touch and while Emily used a few from her own stash, Bits & Pieces – Hearts would work great too!
The background of this card is stenciled with the Squeeze the Day Stencil & Clear Combo set in a color combo that changes the lemons into peaches! The ‘hey’ sentiment is added to a Petite Scallop Circle Stacklets vellum die cut. In the video, Emily shares how she pops the sentiment up a bit by adding additional sentiment die cuts underneath the vellum piece – ingenious! The touch of gold glitter cardstock is added behind the words and phrases from the Building Blocks – Ring Around stamp.
Check out the list below for all of the supplies that Emily used on her cards:
Now, here’s a closer look at the TE Exclusives and new coordinating products that are debuting today along with inspiration from the TE Creative Team:

Each card features a sentiment from the Anytime Expressions stamp set embossed in white on Oreo cardstock and cut out with coordinating dies from the Modern Sentiment Labels die collection. I love the corner details on the cards that are created with the Easy Strips – 1/8″ die cut out from Oreo cardstock and arranged in a geometric criss-cross design!

Cut out the ‘hello’ word with the coordinating Get the Word Out – Hello die.
Jen Shults added a cheery hello to this card using the Get the Word Out – Hello stamp and coordinating die. The ‘hello’ is embossed in white on Pineapple cardstock and added to a card filled with daisies created with the Daisies for Days Cling & Clear Combo set (+ coordinating Daisy Days dies) – more on these products shortly!

Similar to our Simple and Mini Strips collections, TE’s Building Blocks collection makes it easy and convenient to stamp and die cut a variety of words and phrases to create your desired sentiment. Building Blocks – Ring Around is a single stamp with 21 individual sentiments that coordinates with our Ring Around the Words die (sold separately). The words and phrases include:
- Make a

- You So Much
- It’s Your Day
- Upon a Star
- Lots of
- Happy Birthday
- And Hugs

Includes alignment tabs to perfectly line up with the Building Blocks die (sold separately).
Everything looks better with a neatly stitched edge, which is why we created the Stitched Stacklets collection. The Stitched Frame Stacklets 3 die collection includes 3 circular scalloped stitched frames in various sizes that can be used individually or layered together to add extra dimension to gift tags, sentiment backers and more.
The Ring Around the Words die collection is the perfect way to add a sentiment to a background that you want to show off! Lori Craig used her Gel Press to create the artistic background on this card. The ‘hey’ sentiment is framed by the largest frame in the Stitched Frame Stacklets 3 die collection and the ‘sunshine’ word is stamped with Pineapple ink and cut out with one of the Modern Sentiment Label dies. If you look closely, you’ll notice a touch of sparkle on the sentiments and frame that Lori added with a bit of Happy Medium – Iridescent Glitter!
Birthdays are magical, and since there’s nothing more magical than cute little unicorns, our Be U-nicorn Clear & Die Combo set is perfect for just about any birthday card! Along with a wand-yielding unicorn perched on a fluffy cloud, this set includes images of hearts, stars and dots along with the following sentiments:
- Make a wish
- Celebrating you
- Happy birthday
I expect nothing less than a whole bunch of cute from Jill Hawkins and she did not disappoint with this adorable card! Jill colored the unicorn from the Be U-nicorn Stamp & Die Combo set with Copic markers, framed it with the smallest frame from the Stitched Frame Stacklets 3 die collection, added a sentiment from the Mini Strips – Craft Boss stamp, and set it onto a Mini Slim card. This sweet card will definitely bring a smile and maybe even a laugh to the recipient!
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! And when TE gives you the Squeeze the Day Stencil & Clear Combo, make loads of sweet cards that are sure to make your loved ones pucker with delight! Our layering stencils feature the fruit, leaves and stems you need to create a zesty grove of lemons (or limes!). Then use the clear stamps to add dimension, texture, and fun sentiments, including:
- Squeeze the day
- You’re the zest!
- Lime yours
- Hey, sweet friend
Our Squeeze The Day coordinating dies are designed to pair seamlessly with our Squeeze the Day Stencil & Clear Combo (sold separately) to bring added dimension and contrast to the various sentiments and graphics. Dies include 3 lemon & 3 stem coordinating dies with the addition of 5 delicate flowers & centers to create variety & intrigue in your cards!
Heather Nichols paired her signature Toffee cardstock with the Squeeze the Day products and I am head over heels for the results – don’t they make you feel the need for a tall glass of lemonade right now? For the card on the left, Heather stenciled and stamped the background design with the Squeeze the Day Stencil & Clear Combo set. The card on the right features lemons created with the new Squeeze the Day die collection layered onto a background stenciled with the Gingham Rotating Stencil.
Spread sunshine and love all summer long with our Daisies for Days Cling & Clear Combo! The red rubber background stamp creates a beautiful image of a flowering collection of daisies, while the clear stamps provide a quick and easy way to fill in the center of each size of daisy using the color of your choosing!
Our Daisy Days dies are sure to dazzle with 3 different sized daisies & centers. This die coordinates with the Daisies For Days Cling & Clear Combo (sold separately) which makes it easy to pop up the flowers to create eye-catching cards!
Everything is coming up daisies on this birthday card created by Melody Rupple. The background of the card is stamped with the Daisies for Days Cling & Clear Combo set. First, Melody stamped the background in Blue Corn ink with the red rubber stamp and then used the clear stamps to add the centers with Potato Chip and Pineapple inks. The sentiment is from the Anytime Essentials stamp set and Melody framed it with the smallest frame in the Stitched Frame Stacklets 3 die collection. She added more daisies around the sentiment that are created with the Daisy Days dies.
In addition to the TE Exclusives that we are releasing today, we are also releasing a few products that were previously a part of a few of our exclusive kits:
When you want to send your condolences during a difficult time, use The Inside Scoop – Sympathy stamp set. Part of our The Inside Scoop collection, this set includes a variety of sentiments that are as perfect to use on the inside of your cards as the outside.
All of the sentiments in The Inside Scoop – Sympathy stamp set are wonderful for stamping inside cards to send comfort to the people in your life going through a loss. Noriko Fairchild added this heartfelt sentiment inside a sympathy card that she created, keeping things simple by stamping in Oreo ink on a Sugar Cube card.
The Moon & Stars die collection includes stars and a crescent moon that you can cut out and emboss with a dotted texture through the etched openings of the die. Use an embossing pad kit with the moon die cuts and your die cut machine for the best embossing results.
Heather Nichols die cut and embossed the moon from Salt Water Taffy cardstock using the Moon & Stars die collection for this baby card. She added the moon along with stars cut out from Sea Salt cardstock to a starry background that is stamped with Sugar Cube ink on Toffee cardstock. The finishing touch is shimmery stars sprinkled across the card to add a bit of sparkle.
