November / December 2020 Reveal & Release!

 Hey & Happy Monday!

Welcome to the November / December 2020 Reveal & Release!

Incase you missed the news on Friday, I shared some Sneak Peeks at some new products that will be available at 8pm GMT TODAY, Monday 30th November over on the website HERE

With all the craziness and uncertainty of 2020, I kept the hype of a final release for this year quiet incase things didn't go as planned. BUT I am super happy and excited to finally bring you some new designs.

On Saturday and Sunday I shared a couple of cards using two of the new stamp sets, be sure to have a look HERE and HERE. Plus leave a comment to be in the chance of winning a £5 eGift Code to spend in store. I will be announcing the randomly selected winners tomorrow on the blog as I start the Countdown to Christmas FUN on the blogs :)

Okay, let's get to the bit you've been waiting for and formally introduce the NEW clear stamps & stencil designs!

Block Party - Coffee Love £10

First up is Block Party - Coffee Love, the newest addition to the Block Party series of stamps. These single block stamps are designed in a subway art style with a mix of graphics and trendy fonts. This latest one is perfect for all the coffee loving paper crafters and card makers around the world! 

You might notice a few familiar elements from the previously released I LOVE Coffee clear stamp set and they coordinate beautifully together.

This is the only non-Christmas design for this release. I couldn't resist adding and squeezing in some NEW Uniko Christmas clear stamp sets before the big day ;)

Christmas Wishes £10

Introducing Christmas Wishes. As you can see this clear stamp set is a beautifully fresh and modern festive sentiment stamp set. I just love a good font and this one really makes an impact. The set features a mix of some of my favourite 'complete' sentiments (4) and also a range of 'mix and match' sentiments. 

Cracking Christmas £10

Introducing Cracking Christmas. This FUN, festive clear stamp set is drawn in a Pop Art style and is a Christmas 'spin-off' from the previously released and popular Explosion! and Explosion! Additions clear stamps & Designer Dies. 

The stamp set features two halves of a pulled Christmas cracker, but they are designed in a way that they can be joined together for use in making interactive cards. The sentiments are in the same Pop Art style fonts and I've added a brand new style of explosion and accents which will work beautifully with the Explosion! range of products. 

Framed - Holly £10

Lastly, for the clear stamps we have the first in a series of clear stamp sets, Framed - Holly. These sets feature a main 'framed' image, along with some accent stamps. The images contained in the set are drawn in my modern, clean & simple with a touch of Originally Organic style!

That's all the clear stamps for this release, but I also have a couple of stencil designs...

Stencil - Christmas Pop Trio £3.50

First up is Christmas Pop Trio. You might just recognise these trees from the previously released Christmas Pop clear stamp set from a few years ago (which will be making a return). 

AND lastly, but by no means least...

Stencil - Explosion £3.50

Now before I go I do have a little trio of cards to share with you using a few of the new products. I know the release has been a little different this time with not as many samples and my awesome Brand Ambassadors have been absent for now. 

BUT, I have some fun posts planned in the Countdown to Christmas with a CHRISTMAS PARTY along the way! So there will be LOTS more inspiration using the new release products along with some older favourites.

First for today I had a go at making an interactive card using Cracking Christmas! It's pretty basic as I haven't made many interactive cards for a very long time. I started off by making a mini 10 x 10cm gate fold card and you might be able to see that I added the Framed - Holly on the folds. I used Ruby Red ink onto my red card stock so that it was a nice subtle pattern.

The cracker halves are stamped onto some turquoise striped patterned paper I had in my stash box and fussy cut out. I've adhered them using foam adhesive. 

As you can see when the card is opened it reveals an explosion with the sentiment. I have also used the Stencil - Explosion! for the solid area. 

Next I have another card using Framed - Holly...

This time I coloured and added some shaded areas using my Copic Markers. I'm a little out of practice using them, so it was fun to get some practice in with this stamp! 

The sentiment is from Festive Sentiments Outlined and I have stamped & embossed them onto black card & adhered them with foam adhesive. I added a few Nuvo Drops in Autumn Red to some of the berries for a little dimension and contrast. 

Lastly for today I couldn't resist using one of the Christmas Wishes sentiments...

I am wishing for the white stuff to appear every day! I am eager to go sledging with the boys again as it has been a couple of year since we had a good enough snowfall to do so :( 

So I had to make a snowflake card to make up for it! I used my favourite snowflake design from Stunning Snowflakes to pair with the sentiment. I have stamped & embossed the sentiment with my favourite Stardust embossing powder. 

I hope you have enjoyed this mini release and I would LOVE to know what is your favourite and what you would like to see more of in the coming days and during the Countdown to Christmas! 

I will randomly select another lucky comment from this post on Friday 4th December to win a £15 eGift Code to spend in store. So be sure to get your comments on the post before 9am GMT that day ;)

ALL the products will be available for purchase at 8pm GMT tonight!! Less than 30 minutes to go  - woohoo! 

Thank you for all the lovely comments so far here on the blog, the website and around social media. Your support is truly appreciated.
