Christmastime is Here (and Available to Demonstrators)

A Stampin’ Up! demonstrator pre-order for an incredible, new bundle started on October 1. The Christmastime is Here Bundle will be available to customers on November 1. The new Paper Trimmer by Stampin’ Up! was also released to demonstrators on the same day. How exciting is that?! I wouldn’t normally share sneak peeks at new products this far before you can actually buy them, but…maybe this is the perfect time for you to sign up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator? ♥ Here’s my card that was created with both the new bundle and the new paper trimmer:

Christmastime Is Here Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingTips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Christmastime is Here. At first glance, you might be wondering why Stampin’ Up! is pairing Christmas and roses – they aren’t the first flower I think of at Christmas, either. My curiosity got the best of me, so my quick Google search of “Christmas red roses” educated me that red roses are really popular decorations for Christmas. Who knew?! Try it yourself – they are everywhere. Here’s a look at the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Suite Bundle: Christmastime Is Here Suite Bundle, Stampin' Up! 153944The Christmastime Is Here Suite Bundle includes the following:
    • Christmas Rose Stamp Set (10% off)
    • Roses Dies (10% off)
    • Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper
    • Gold 1/4″ (6.4 mm) Shimmer Ribbon
    • Gold Glitter Enamel Dots
    • Charming Rose Bracelet (that’s right – jewelry)
  • Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper. The elegant arrangement on the front of my card is cropped right from the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper and then showcased on another panel of the same paper. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 152154This 12″ x 12″ pack of papers includes 12 pages (4 each of 3 double-sided designs). I used the Roses Dies to crop the image right from the Designer Series Paper – you can crop 4 of that pattern from the first page shown above for a total of 12 in a pack of Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper. Here’s a closer look: Christmastime Is Here Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingI cropped the pattern from the Specialty Designer Series Paper and then again from a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock. I glued the two together (they are the same size) to give the pattern enough firmness to be popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Colors & Layers. The colors for this card are pulled right from the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper (it seems appropriate since the primary layers of this card are from that paper. If you like this rich combination of Gold Foil, Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow, please save this for future reference:Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Gold Foil, Cherry Cobbler, Mossy MeadowThe gorgeous layers on this card are simple – and a go-to layering I use often.

  1. You rocked that rose and what a perfect choice for the background!

  2. Beautiful…I bought the ribbon and gold dots and trying to resist the bundle but you are pushing me there!

  3. This new set makes a beautiful card with little effort. Love the paper and the color combo. Great job, Brian! Have a wonderful day!

  4. Be still my beating heart! This is the card I imagined in my mind when this suite was introduced. I know, great minds think alike, right? I saw that diamond shaped paper and thought perfect backdrop. I only did not think about the sentiment or the fantastic idea of backing the rose cutout with a layer to make it sturdier. I ordered the paper to see if my idea was doable. Well, you broke it all down for me. I am so looking forward to CASEing your card. To think I thought about fussy cutting the rose spray out! Can you tell I love this? Thanks for taking my dream and making it a reality!

    • Thank you so much, Chris! Every page of this paper is gorgeous – you are going to LOVE playing with it. Thanks for your super-kind comments. So glad you like the card I made. ♥

  5. Ooooh, my friend… what a beautiful card, love everything about it ♥️
    Tfs Hugs Frenchie ♥️

  6. Gorgeous image and very elegant card!
