Well, not yet, anyway, but it is here in my house! There is a new limited-edition suite of products that will be available to order starting Nov. 1st, and it will only be around as long as supplies last. It's called the Christmastime Is Here Suite and it made my heart do a happy dance when I saw it!
Naturally I HAD to preorder the entire suite bundle, but it will also be available as separate products, and a stamp set/die bundle, if that's what you prefer.
The first thing I noticed is the double case stamp set..... the outline stamp (which will be FAB for coloring!) is a red rubber cling stamp, and the rest of the stamps are photopolymer! So you can stamp your outline and get the awesome detail with the rubber, and then see where you are going to stamp with the filler stamps. Brilliant, don't you think?
The next thing I noticed is the large die that cuts out the rose stamp image ALSO cuts the same rose image in the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP! How cool is that?
You don't even have to stamp and color to get a great image for your cards. And included with the dies are four lovely accent pieces and two fancy labels. I used the trellis accent and one of the labels on the card shown.
In addition to the stamps/dies and DSP, there is (cue the angels singing) Gold Glimmer Ribbon and Gold Glitter Enamel Dots! Be still my heart! The ribbon is 1/4" wide and has a wonderful softness and drape to it. It will make wonderful bows or ornament hangers or the finishing touch for gift wrap or.......
Sorry, I couldn't get a good enough photo of the DSP, so I used the stock photo from Stampin' Up! - it really needs to be seen in real life to appreciate how pretty it is. There are four sheets each of three double-sided designs with one side on each having gold foil accents. It's nice that there are plenty of each design for Christmas cards!
So.....do you love it and have to have it? Don't want to wait until November? If you join my team, you can preorder it AND get the 20% demo discount. Or you can wait until November. Just sayin'!
This gold-embossed Christmas Rose is a quick alternative to coloring or two-step stamping, if that's not your cup of tea. It is embossed on Very Vanilla, lending it a rich, vintage feel.
