It's finally here!  The second release from By DIEzyne Dies.  We are celebrating this weekend on Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group and C.C. Designs Facebook Group.
We are kicking everything off with a really big blog hop!
We have the C.C. Designs DT here today to share their creativity with the new By DIEzyne Dies. You can find By DIEzyne Dies by clicking HERE

These dies worked perfectly with this train stamp.  I was able to keep to kind of masculine feeling while adding fun elements to the card.  It was so simple to use the Big Stitched & Pierced Rectangle die and the Stitched Flags two.  I am really happy with how fun this was to make.  I hope you are enjoying the crazy talent of the Design team with all these fabulous new Dies by Rhea.

What is a blog hop without prizes?!?!
Of course we have prizes.  We are going to play a game.
Here is how you play:

5.  The last person on the hop is Rhea, the creator of By DIEzyne Dies.  Leave your answer in a comment on her blog.  Make sure you also follow her blog.

Catch A Falling Star

How about this little cutie from Little Darling rubber Stamps?  I fell in love with him when I saw him.  He is busy carrying his little star around.  Reminds me of my rascally (18 year old) boy running around barefoot when he was much younger.  Perfect for that little sweet boy in your life.  It's called "Catch a Falling Star"  You can find it in the store HERE.  I know you will love this one too.  These stamps stamp soon crisp!  I can't wait for the next bunch to be released...oh wait they just arrived in the mail....I can't wait to show you.  Tease, tease!

Dancing with Daffodils

This image features awakening daffodils and twirling foliage in a tangle of periwinkle (Vinca minor), with a roly poly snail. A "just because" sentiment (with a transparent background) shares the daffodils' twirling sensibility

Here is some inspiration from the other DT lovelies

You Are Fairy Cool! - LDRS

Do you love fairies like I do?  I had to color this "From the Hollow" image up.  Her name is Christy and she is by Little Darling Rubber Stamps.  LDRS has a handful of cute fairies in this line.  She has holly in her hair but with Christmas already behind me I thought I would ignore that fact and color her for an every day card.  
You can find her in the store HERE

Today is preview day for CCDesigns.  This stamp and so many more are going to be released on the 7th just in time to whip up those easter cards.  I loved this little bunny.  I happened to have clouds airbrushed on a piece of paper so I just stamped over it and colored her in.  I think it turned out fun!

You can also get the sassy sentiment at CCDesigns too.
