First up in the spotlight today is a brand new set called Rise Above.
Another uplifting set, Rise Above has a beautiful distressed sun image with an open center perfect for accenting with the sentiments in this set. Many of the sentiments in our other releases will fit as well. A couple little clouds add character and you'll have fun encouraging others with the fun sentiments in this set.

The Partly Cloudy is the coordinating die set for Rise Above.  The clouds in this set are exact cuts (with no border around the stamped image).  The distressed sunshine has a very slight white border around the image when stamped.  For easy alignment with all our dies (especially ones with exact cuts), you can check out this video I did a while back.  Pro tip:  when lining up the distressed sun image with the die, look for the two or three rays that have a slight notch at the end of the ray for a reference for lining up the die.

Next up in the spotlight is the New Beginnings set.  This set of 12 images and sentiments is perfect for all your springtime projects.  The flowers are sweet by themselves or paired with the included stem stamps. The smaller sentiments in this set are perfectly framed by the stitched circle in the Springtime Stitches Die Set.

The Springtime Stitches Die Set is the coordinating die set for New Beginnings.  The two outlined flowers in this set are exact cuts  (with no border around the stamped image), making them perfect for piecing together and for masking techniques.  The flower image with a solid border around the inner flower has a very slight white border around the stamped image. The stitched circle is 1.5" and fits many of the sentiments in our release and also fits the center of the sunshine in Rise Above.  For easy alignment with all our dies (especially ones with exact cuts), you can check out this video I did a while back.

Okay, if you're still with me, the hop starts over on my blog, Poetic Artistry! Come say hello!
