Well, March has come and gone. In the beginning of March, I was still wearing my winter coat, now it’s 92 degrees outside and I’m in shorts, that’s west Texas for you. This top 5 was hard for me because I bought sooooo many stamps and dies this month! But I narrowed it down and here it is:
1. Paper Smooches Sassy Letters Die Set
This is THE die set to have especially if you can’t decide what sentiment(s) to purchase. I love this font, it’s so funky and (obviously) sassy. Each letter is unique and no matter what sentiment you make, it’ll give your card a fun feel. As you can see, I’ve kept the letters attached and I plan on keeping it that way because I think the negative part of your paper would make an awesome background. You can see the card I made with this die set, A Sassy Thanks, here (I forgot to mention, this card was chosen as a Featured Player for the Paper Smooches March Picture Perfect Challenge).
2. Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Die Set
Here is another die set that I think is a must have. I have to say the border dies are my favorite. I love the stitched look on the two border dies, you can see how I used one on the We Really Really Miss You card I made recently. Also, the stitched die (in gray) is also a fun look to add on any card.
Here you can see how the circle dies pierce your cut and the negative space of your paper. There’s so many things you can do with this, and you get different size circles!
3. Mama Elephant Dainty Bow Die Set
So I’ve been wanting a bow die for a while now and I decided to get the Mama Elephant version of it. This is a great die set for that little feminine touch. I love how you can make two different styles with this die and how the bow pops up and isn’t flat (works better with thinner paper). It’s super easy to make and would work great for a lot more projects than just cards.
4. Lawn Fawn Premium Dye Ink Pads
Lawn Fawn recently came out with their own line of ink pads. I don’t have that much experience with ink because the majority of my ink is from Papertrey Ink, but I knew I needed to start experimenting. I wanted to try Lawn Fawn because I just love all their products and also because the line is new and they only have 10 colors out right now. I knew if I loved the ink I was going to want the whole set, and sure enough, Lawn Fawn did not disappoint! I only have Fake Tan and Cranberry so far. You can see in the picture above how vibrant the ink is. I’m really looking forward to getting the rest!
5. Altenew Vintage Roses Stamp Set
I FINALLY got Vintage Roses!!! I have been wanting this for so long. At first I was a little intimidated by this set. It seemed complicated and hard, like it would take forever to piece the stamps but I was wrong! Once I finally decided to purchase this, I had to wait for it to be in stock because this stamp set is so popular and it was always sold out. I didn’t realize how many roses and leaves you can make with this until it arrived, it’s the biggest stamp set I have. You can see an example of the beautiful roses and leafs it makes on the picture above, they have great detail.
I am definitely looking forward to buying new stuff during April and can’t wait to see all the new products that will be coming out. I hope you guys had a great March and have an even better April!
