{FINAL DAY} January Stamps & Dies Release Week - CUTplorations Alpha and Numbers Plate Dies

Hey, awesome crafters! Welcome to DAY 5 -- the last day -- of the January Stamps & Dies Release Week! We've released FOUR new stamp sets by Shery (me), Shirley, Deepti, and Becca, as well as THREE alphabet and numbers plate dies in our CUTplorations line.

We featured my stamp set, Noteworthy 2, in our DAY 1 post; Shirley's stamp set, Fowl Play, in our DAY 2 post; Deepti's Just Because set in our DAY 3 post; and Becca's A Snarky Birthday to You set in our DAY 4 post. Today it's time to show off our 3 super fun CUTplorations plate dies! With our alphabet and number plate dies, it's easy to create custom sentiments. And because these dies are plate dies, you can have complete letter and number sets in one pass!

Take a look at what the STAMPlorations girls made!








Want a chance to win these plate dies OR a $25 gift certificate? Simply leave a comment on this post, on the designers' blogs, and on our Instagram account between now and Tuesday, February 7, 11:55 p.m. Pacific. We'll announce the winners right here on the blog in our January Challenges & Hops winners post on February 10. Become a follower of our blog or follow us by email to receive updates when we post something here. How easy is that? Have fun!

And that's it for our January release! I hope you enjoyed seeing the projects that the STAMPlorations girls made to showcase our new stamps and dies. They certainly rocked the new products! Thank you for hopping with us and we hope to see you in our next quarterly release blog hop in April. But before then, we have quite a few blog events and mini releases scheduled so you'll want to keep your eyes peeled. At least 20 brand new products are coming to the store between now and April!


These stamps and dies are available now on the store and they're 5% off until February 10. (Discount is automatically applied -- no coupon needed.) You'll find them in the New Release category.
