HOLIDAY CATALOGUE PREORDER HAPPINESS
If you ever want to catch a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in state of pure bliss – catch them when they’ve received their catalogue pre order goodies! Seriously – it’s like Christmas morning! Or whatever your favourite day of the year is, when you get things you’ve been waiting for. Holiday Catalogue pre order happiness is a great feeling. And I just received my pre order on Friday, so I’ve had the weekend to start playing.
PRE ORDER GOODIES
Opening the box is such fun! Cut open the tape, remove the bubble wrap, then voila! After digging through the box with glee, you then try to set up the box so that as many of the new products are visible as possible, so that you can share with your blog readers 🙂
Oh, the sparkly goodness! You’ll love the new Glimmer Paper pack, and the gorgeous copper Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements. That ribbon is a beautiful two-tone Merry Merlot and copper – yummy!
Here’s a close up look at Joyous Noel Specialty DSP, and those wire snowflakes & stars:
This designer paper is beautiful – there’s lots of gold and copper foil in the designs. It’s part of the Joyous Noel Suite, which includes the Glimmer Paper, the ribbon and Wire elements.
TIN TILE DYNAMIC TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER
The Tin Tile DTIEF is amazing! Because it’s the ‘dynamic’ type, it gives an extra-deep impression of the design to your paper. So if you’re using it with cardstock, be sure to spritz your cardstock with water, before embossing. What that does is relax the paper fibres, so they won’t crack or break. You’ll be left with a gorgeous embossed paper.
I couldn’t wait to try it with the Foil Papers! Have a look – I used both Copper and Real Red.
You just HAVE to get this embossing folder! OMGosh – it’s gorgeous! Plus, it’s a design that will work for any occasion, year ’round. Definitely a worthwhile investment for your stash.
I knew I would buy this Bundle as soon as I saw it! The stamp set is called Dashing Deer, and it has coordinating thinlits called Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies. There are matching dies for the 2 smaller deer images, and for the small flower. Then there are complimentary thinlits for a large jumping deer (be still my heart!), 2 flower flourish corner thinlits, and multiples of the flowers.
Can you count how many of the new products I used in this one card?! I used the Dashing Deer stamp set, Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies – yes, I purchased the Bundle, and saved 10%! – the Tin Tile DTIEF, the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP, and the Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon.
In this picture, you can see the details of the Tin Tile DTIEF, and a bit of the Wink of Stella I put on the antlers.
The colours I used are Soft Suede ink, Soft Suede cardstock (for the deer & card base), Whisper White cardstock, Copper Foil Sheet, Versamark Ink, Copper Embossing Powder and Wood Textures DSP.
