Thank you everyone for playing along and using our hashtags; it’s been fun to follow your comments on our social media channels! Now, let’s look at our line up of new products once again!

We are super excited about our Ornamental 3D Embossing Folders. These 3 folders create the most elegant, elaborate patterns you can imagine. You will be blown away by the dimensional effect achieved from these folders!

It’s here, it’s here! The Anna Griffin Treasury of Stamps and Dies offers you an entire year of amazing crafting. This comes organized in a binder filled with 61 stamps and 34 concentric cutting dies. What’s great is that you can choose from 5 patterns to match the rest of your Anna Griffin storage patterns! Take your pick from Camilla, Amelie, Grace Black, Ivory Damask and Grace White.

Included with your binder, you will receive holiday stamps and dies, botanical and celebratory stamps and dies and a stamp for all your friends and family. Now you can personalize cards for your friend, sister-in-law and all the important people in your life.

Wait, there’s more! We have an auto ship option that expands on important card sending occasions each containing 24 stamps and 18 dies. Auto Ship 1 is all about “Birthday and Congratulations” stamps and dies.  You are going to love stamping and creating dimensional diecuts like balloons, wreaths and presents to celebrate any special occasion.

With Auto Ship 2, you will be able to create “Sympathy and Inspiration” cards. Make cards that say just the right thing to lift others up. Layer sentiments from Believe and Thinking of You to Love & Hope. Add stamped lilies, trees and more for the finishing touches.

The last shipment is Auto Ship 3! This set has stamps and dies about “Get Well and Gratitude.” Send well wishes from Sending Love and Strength to Forever Grateful. Combine your stamped sentiments with beautiful teapots and a bird and branch for a gorgeous effect.

Our Treasury Cards and Layers coordinate perfectly with The Anna Griffin Treasury of Stamps and Dies! You’ll get 54, 5×7 cards, 54 envelopes and 54 printed layers. Mix and match card patterns and layers until your heart’s content.

Make your stamping shine with the 6 colors in our set of Treasury Inks. The vibrant inks are incredible on their own, or topped with a matching embossing powder.

Add dimension to your stamping with coordinating Treasury Embossing Powders! All 6 colors work with your stamped image and our Heat Embossing Tool to create a whole new texture on sentiments and embellishments.

There’s nothing we love more than tools in Anna Griffin ivory and gold! Use the two speeds along with our inks and embossing powders to turn your stamping into glossy works of art!

Our Anna Griffin Mini is fun sized! This diecutting and embossing machine is great for using with the Anna Griffin Treasury of Stamps and Dies, your smaller dies and embossing border folders!

Now that’s a celebration! The countdown is on! We are so excited that we can kick off the new year and create with you on January 10th. It’s going to be a grand occasion!

Now we have a few tips and tricks when it comes to using your Acetate Cards for Everyday!

Tip #1: Ribbon

Attaching the acetate card overlay to a card base using ribbon is a fun way to attach the the two without using adhesive.

Tip #2: Matching Die-Cuts & Acetate

Acetate Cards for All Occasions and Vintage Garden Die-Cuts are designed to go together to create a layered, three-dimensional effect on your cards. Choose your favorite die cut from the set, and layer on top of the coordinating design on the acetate layer.

 

Tip #3: Embossing

Emboss a card stock layer and place it underneath the acetate. The texture shows through beautifully.

Tip #4: Add Volume, Dimension and Texture

Gently curl the edges of the die-cuts using the barrel of a pencil for a tighter curve.  Use larger barreled pens or markers to get a more gentle curve on your die cuts.

 

Tip #5: Brads

Using brads or grommets is a creative way to fasten sentiments and embellishments to the acetate layer while also holding layers together.

Tip #6: 3D Acetate

To give your card a three-dimensional effect, fussy cut a design out of the acetate and layer it over the duplicate design on the acetate card layer. Add height with foam adhesive to give your card texture.

Tip #7: Shaker Card

Acetate cards are great for making shaker cards! Follow the easy steps below to make your own shaker card. See full step by step from a previous how to here.

  1. Cut off the front or back of the acetate card.
  2. Fussy cut a border from card stock.
  3. Adhere card stock layer on top of acetate layer using double-sided tape.
  4. Place foam strips on a card stock card base in a rectangle. The strips should be placed about a half-inch in from each side.
  5. Die cut confetti.
  6. Fill the rectangle with confetti.
  7. Attach your acetate layer to the foam strips. The card stock border should cover the foam strips.
  8. Add embellishments and a sentiment.

Now that is a fun filled Friday! Join us right here on Monday for the last Product Preview before our shows and later in the week for your shopping list!

Love,

Anna
