June/July 2015 Release Blog Hop

Woo HOO! The newest Pretty Cute Stamps are here! Welcome to the Pretty Cute Stamps June/July 2015 Release Blog Hop. YAY! My amazing Design Team and I have some super cute projects to show you today that we created using the very newest PCS stamps.

But first, I want to show you all of the new stamps you can purchase now in the Pretty Cute Stamps Store. Oh, and, most importantly...all of the new items (even the bundle) are ON SALE until 11:59 EST on Tuesday, July 7, 2015. Woo HOO! they are. You can find all of these new items in the PCS store HERE.

 Everyday Planner 4" x 6" Stamp Set

Happy Crafting 4" x 6" Stamp Set

Knit Happens 4" x 6" Stamp Set

Sew Amazing 4" x 6" Stamp Set

Sunshiny Day 4" x 6" Stamp Set

***Important Note*** I will be on vacation with my family during the release. So, because I'm the only one who can mail out the stamps, any stamps ordered between July 1 and July 8 will be mailed out on July 9. Thank you so much for your understanding. But, be sure to still order during the sale to get the discounted prices.

The SVG Outlines for the images on each of these new sets are also now available in the store. So, if you're not one who likes fussy-cutting around images and has access to an electronic cutting machine that can use SVG files, these could be a great resource for you. The stamp images are not included with these need the stamp sets for those. Oh, and these SVG Outlines are also ON SALE until Thursday night, too!

Okay, here's my project using the SEW cute stamp set: Sew Amazing:

I'm always moving all over the place, so it seems like I'm always missing someone. So, I thought this would be the perfect little card to make with this set. I got the little pin cushion and the sentiment from the Sew Amazing stamp set, and I used the SVG Outlines for the set to cut out the little guy, and I colored him using my Copic markers. I also added a cute little face to him because I just couldn't resist. 

I also created a fun little shaped card with one of the freebies for today. I wanted to show how this little cutie goes together when you cut it out. I stamped a fun sentiment from the Knit Happens set:

You can see, below, how the file works. The legs form two little tabs that you can tuck the yarn ball behind. How cute is that?

And here's the freebie I used from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. This Yarn Ball Cats set will be available for FREE today only, then it will be available for purchase in the PPPR store. You can download this file by clicking on the photo below:
