Christmas is coming early this year, as the Artisan Design Team share inspiration about a Brand New Suite called, Christmastime is Here. Yes, Christmastime really is here, as Demonstrators are able to pre-order these beautiful new products from today. You too could if you were to buy a starter kit that included it.
This exclusive, limited time collect of festive, floral coordinating products has everything you need to share love, joy and creativity this festive season.
Manuela has already shared some beautiful inspiration and you’ll be spoilt to even more as you progress around the hop. Before you leave me though, take a look at what I have to share with you today.
There is so much in this new suite that the Avid Crafter has plenty to creative with. The coordination and versatility meets with the Stampin’ Up! ethos of easy coordination. The Stamp Sets layer and the Dies cut out the stamped image and also the flowers within the patterned papers. I had a wonderful play with this suite when designing what I have to share with you today.
It was the sentiment you see here, that had me leaning towards using this Heart. I found it in a local shop and decided to dress it up with some paper flowers. Once I started to die cut the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper #152154, I couldn’t stop. I felt compelled to layer the flower up by creating a decoupage style floral cluster fussy cutting with my Paper snips, various layers. Some layers just offer leaves and others the rose petals. This helped to create depth and interest to the flower that I anchored with Hot Glue over a loop of the beautiful Gold Shimmer Ribbon #152156.
I wanted something suitable for a couple who might be celebrating their Wedding Anniversary during this time of the year. A card perhaps suitable to send your partner, wife or husband. With red being the colour of love, the richness of the Cherry Cobbler found throughout this suite, seemed the perfect base colour for my first card.
The little gold spots were created using the berry image to stamp and heat emboss, whilst the flowers were fussy cut from the Designer Series Paper. This trellis work looks so beautiful that it had to be used as a background layer for detail cut from Gold Foil.
With such beautiful Designer Series Paper, it’s hard to not keep using it. Again, I fussy cut one of the Rose clusters you see on this first sheet below, to act as a backdrop to the sentiment panel. I adore the Gold Foil touches to these papers, which you can see in my samples.
The Gold Foil detail you can see either side of the Sentiment layer, is made from one of the beautiful Dies that come in this Die set.
My third and final card took me again, back to a heart shaped sentiment panel and one found in the Die set, Stitched Be Mine.
This card was very simple. A base layer of Designer Series Paper a strip of Shimmery Gold Ribbon, a Gold Foil Trellis layer before a heart shaped sentiment panel. I just love this little Pinecone and Pine sprig. Such an understated card, with enough detail and texture to excite the senses.
This beautiful Christmastime is Here suite is avaialble today to all Demonstrators where preorder limits apply. One per Demonstrator for non consumable items (such as the Christmas Rose Stamp Set, Charming Rose Bracelet etc). Consumable items like the Gold Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and Specialty Designer Series Paper, have a limit of 2 per Demonstrator. This suite will be available to customers to purcahse from 1st November, however, if you’d like it now, then you could add this to your Starter Kit.
You could get this entire suite of products for just £99 if you add some additional items and this to your Starter Kit. The additional benefits of doing this would mean you’d have an ongoing 20% discount on all orders, plus you’d have advanced purchasing from the up coming Spring/Summer Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration offering.
