Side By Side Sentiments is a unique set of sentiments featuring a modern set up and design in true Maile Belles style.  A collection of 8 phrases complete this set and allows you to create heartfelt creations for an assortment of common occasions.  This go-to set will be one you'll reach for again and again.


The Details:

  • Side By Side Sentiments will be available for purchase on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $15.
  • Side By Side Sentiments contains a total of 8 images.  The "Love You" sentiment measures 2 1/2" x 3/4", the "Happy Birthday" and the "Merry Christmas" sentiments measures 3 1/8" x 3/4".


Tiny Triangles is a fun little collection of patterned triangles I put together for you, perfect for creating colorful backgrounds.  You will love mixing and matching everything and playing with various color combinations.  This set also coordinates well with the Cover Plate: Triangles die.  You can choose to stamp the patterned triangles through the openings of a Cover Plate cut-out or stamp the patterns on the actual triangle pieces and then reinsert them into the frame.  You can also use the frame to place all of the triangles and then remove the frame from your project.  Try impressing the die into your cardstock using an embossing mat, and use the impressed outlines as your guide for stamping the patterns.  There are literally dozens of options with unlimited possibilities, so have fun!

The Details:

  • Tiny Triangles will be available for purchase on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $5.
  • Tiny Triangles contains a total of 15 images.  Each triangle measures 5/8".

 In case you missed it in the past, our Cover Plate dies have TONS of design options!  Here is a video I did using Cover Plate: Hexagons when it was first released several months ago.  All of the techniques used in the video can be applied to the new Cover Plate: Triangles too!




Here's another much-requested die that we're excited to be bringing you today!  The Butterfly Kisses die was designed to coordinate with the butterflies in the previously released Butterfly Kisses stamp set.  Pull out that oldie-but-goodie and give it some love with this new coordinating die!

The Details: 

  • Butterfly Kisses die will be available for purchase on May 15th.
  • It will retail for $3.
  • Butterfly Kisses die measures 2-1/4" x 1-5/8".

Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Little Note Card
For my first project today I could hardly wait to try out my Cover Plate: Triangles die along with the coordinating Tiny Triangles stamp set.

Triangles closeup
I die cut the plate from white cardstock and carefully cut it into strip.  The individual triangles were popped out and stamped in a variety of colors and patterns.

The sentiment (from Side By Side Sentiments) was added in between two of the pattern strips using True Black ink.

I just love how all that fun color just pops from this crisp white card!  Will definitely be doing this again!

Get Well Soon Card
For my next project I opted to layer the individual triangles to create this cool focal point/border.

The Cover Plate: Triangles was die-cut from white cardstock and individual triangles were stamped in the different colors and patterns.  The colors I chose to use were Spring Moss, Melon Berry and Aqua Mist.  The triangles are mounted with small bits of foam tape to create dimension.

The sentiment (from Side By Side Sentiments) was added to the Classic Kraft card front with White Filigree Embossing Powder.

I positioned the triangle border so that it accents the dotted that is incorporate into the sentiment stamp.  Everything was adhered onto a Melon Berry card base.

Hello Card
This project has a bit more of an earthy feel to it.  To begin, I impressed the new Cover Plate: Triangles into Vintage Cream cardstock using the same sandwich as you would for an impression plate.

I added die-cut triangles that were stamped in various patterns and colors, using the impressed pattern as a guide when adhering.  

Cork texture
I also added a few cork triangles.  I love the texture the cork adds to a project!

I also die-cut Wonderful Words: Hello from cork and adhered it at a bit of angle on the card front.

The card was completed with a Canyon Clay card base.

Mr. & Mrs. Card
For my last project I pulled out the old favorite, Butterfly Kisses.  Having the new coordinating die makes this set so much more fun to play around with!

Butterflies side
The butterflies were die cut from vellum and then heat embossed with Black Filigree Embossing Powder.  I colored on the BACK of the butterflies using bright Copic Markers.

Butterfly closeup
I arranged the butterflies across the card front with small bits of foam tape.  Black rhinestones accent around the butterflies.

The sentiment from Side By Side Sentiments was a perfect fit.
