Giveaways, New Releases

KS July Release – Day 1 – New SlimLine Dies & 4th of July SALES!!!!

Hello Kat Scrappiness fans!  Welcome to Day 1 of the July release!    We are changing things a bit for our release post and hopefully you’ll be glad why we did it this way!  We have a HUGE release and each design team member was assigned a specific product to feature.  By doing so, you’ll be able to see different products and samples made by the team.  Throughout the month of July,  you will see samples that you haven’t seen from the release posts. This will keep things fresh and interesting, and you will be amazed with what the entire team has in store for you.  Stay tuned and subscribe to our Blog and YouTube channel to see all of these projects.


Don’t forget that we also have a giveaway every day during the reveals so PLEASE SCROLL THROUGH AT THE END OF THE POST TO FIND OUT HOW TO WIN.


Before I show you the products, I just want you all to know that Kat Scrappiness is having a 4th of July weekend “SITEWIDE” sale (excludes Slimline products).  Use the coupon code (‘FREEDOM”) to get 15% off.



For todays reveal, we are showcasing a few Slimline dies –> the Cityscape, Tri-Frames and Double Stitched Nesting with the Coffee Background die and the Christmas Gnome stamp set.  Design Team member, Martha is showcasing (the previously released) Lola the Giraffe stamp set but the coordinating die didn’t come in time for this release.  However, you will still see Martha’s project today.  Here’s what the dies and stamp set looks like:







Are you ready to see the samples?




I created the background by die-cutting masking paper using the Nesting Circle dies.  I ink-blended a Bristol smooth panel with Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet and Black Soot.  I used a paintbrush to flick some water on the colored panel and dabbed it with paper towel to dry.  Removing the mask revealed the full moon.  I used the Cityscape die to die-cut it in black and kept it simple by adhering it onto the colored panel with liquid glue.  I finished the design by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink and added an enamel heart.  Here’s a closer look:



For my second card, I wanted to showcase the Cityscape die on an A2 size card to show versatility, die-cutting it a couple of times with some Bristol smooth white card stock and inking them up with some distress oxide inks in rainbow order.



I used the Sunscape stencil to create a subtle hue for my background.  I finished the design by adding the sentiment from the Everyday Brush Stroke stamp set.  Here’s a closer look:







This slimline card by Jo is just stunning!  She used the new Tri-Frames die set to die cut them in brown and yellow that matches the colors of Lola the Giraffe, adding a stenciled background using a grass stencil and finishing her design by adding a few colorful butterflies.  


Here is Jo’s process video for this card:





Jo used the new Cityscape Slimline die and the Tri-Frames Slimline dies to create this cute shaker card.  For her sentiment, she used the You Rock Sentiment die and used the new Old Glory Sprinkles, just in time for your Patriotic-themed projects.


Here’s Jo’s process video for this card:



I went for a simple card.  I die-cut the panel using the Double-Stitched Nesting Slimline dies and stamped the rainbows and other images a few times on the card.  The frame was foam-mounted for added dimension and to finish the design, I added some Sparkling clear jewels.  They are my favorite to use for cards!






I absolutely LOVE this design by Kathy.  The background was die-cut using the new Coffee Background die and ink-blended to look like coffee stain.  She then adhered this piece on some brown card stock to make the images pop.


Kathy added the coffee cup die-cut from the Layered Coffee Cup die set, popping them up with foam adhesive.  She finished her design by adding the Hooray sentiment and Coffee Beans sprinkles, all available at the shop.





Even though we didn’t received the coordinating die for Lola the Giraffe because of the delay in shipping, Martha managed to create this cute card using the stamp set.



Martha stamped the image four times on this card panel and colored them in with alcohol markers.  She die-cut the gingham pattern frame using the new Tri-Frames Slimline die set.  She finished her design by popping up the sentiment and added a few sprinkles.  Here’s a closer look:







Lisa created three (3) adorable Christmas tags using the Christmas Gnome stamp set.  She colored her images with some alcohol markers, and use her Scan N Cut to die-cut them out.  She die-cut the tags three times using the Stitched Scalloped Nesting dies and stamped the sentiment a couple of times to create the background.  She used foam adhesive to pop up the images and the sentiment.  She finished her design by adding a festive red ribbon with some red and white twine.



We have also changed the giveaway prize so that you can pick what you want from the shop.  Would you like to win a $25 Gift Card to the KS shop?   We will pick one lucky winner!

    I absolutely loved Maria Russell’s card, “You color my world.” The subtle rays of sun, and vivid
    colors used on the skyscrapers caught my eye for sure!

    Absolutely love the cityscape dies. I might not have thought to do them in pastel colors and really like that. I have to keep reminding myself to think outside the box that I didn’t even realize I was restricting myself with!

    I like everything shone, but my two favorites are the Cityscape die & the stitched slim line card frames. The gnomes are adorable, too. So much to like, so hard to choose. Congratulations on a great new release!

    I love that slimline cards have made a comeback and the new dies in the collection are wonderful. And being a die hard coffee lover, the coffee BG die is at the top of my wishlist now. Awesome inspiration from the team. Those gnomies are adorbs! But right now, I am inspired by Kathy’s coffee card to go have another cuppa!
