December 2023 Release Peeks Day 1: Frogs & Oddballs & Princesses Oh My!

I am absolutely delighted to be able to start sharing our new release with you! Our final release of 2023 is a fabulous way to end the year, and will give you lots of stamping and colouring fun over the holidays and well into the new year.

We have two days of peeks, today and tomorrow. Release day is Friday 1st December, and all of the stamps will be available to order then.

Even better than that, we are holding our final sale of 2023 alongside this release, and the release is included in the offers. Our way of saying a huge THANK YOU for all of your love and support this year.

With all of that said, lets take a look at the gorgeous new rubbah we have for you. The Babes and our special guest Sue Hastead have as always done an AHMAZING job showcasing the new images. Make sure you leave them some love in the comments below and/or on our social media – the love is always appreciated.

First up we have some FROGGY FUN! 


This set will pair with the new image sets below to create fun cards for all sorts of occasions throughout the year.


The cutest line up of froggies you ever did see! We couldn’t resist including the little froggy bum in the middle. Most frogs don’t have butt cheeks, but there are some that do, and it is simultaneously adorable and hilarious. I dare the recipient of any card featuring this stamp to try not to smile. Can’t be done.

Card Samples:


This little collection of froggy friends has so many possibilities. In fact I’m seeing the little frog prince puckering up for a kiss with one of the stamps later on in this post…

Card Samples:


We have a new addition to our FLORALS stamp range. So pretty, and it frames a sentiment or another image so beautifully. The bleeding heart flower is a symbol of love and compassion. Send it to express love and affection, or even in condolence for a loss. Or just because it’s pretty!

Card Samples:

Sandra has used mirror stamping to create a frame for one of our FROG TRIO SET. SOOOO good!


We loved the bleeding heart so much that we had to have a Bleeding Heart Oddball. She’s going to be wonderful for all sorts of occasions – Valentine’s Day, in sympathy, “just because” for a friend or loved one, and of course birthdays.

Michele also used our ODD TOGETHER SENTIMENT SET

Jenny also used our LOVE SENTIMENT SET

We just love our make do and mend Oddball. She’s over here stitching hearts back together, making them even more beautiful than before. Just mind the pins…

Finally, we have some stamps for those of you that love fairy-tales and big floaty princess dresses.


Firstly we have the perfect sentiment set to go with them…

Then we have…


Isn’t she stunning? Every inch the fairy-tale princess. We’re seeing that dress coloured so many different ways, with added sparkle, with paper piecing, with patterns, with simple flat colour and beautifully shaded and defined folds. However you want to do it, she’s going to look spectacular.

Card Samples:

Delphine also used our FAIRYTALE BACKDROP


What can we say? THAT HAIR. So good.
