While creating the fun card I’m sharing with you today, I inadvertently incorporated a wide variety of products: (1) a Holiday stamp set that will carry forward into future offerings, (2) a new set of dies that are available in the upcoming January-April 2024 Mini Catalog, (3) prior-year Holiday embellishments that are carried forward into the 2023 Annual Catalog and (4) an Online Exclusives paper that has sold out and is no longer available. Here’s the simple card I made with this variety of products:
(1) Holiday Catalog Stamp Set Carrying Forward
We were first introduced to the Biggest Wish stamp set (a collection of birthday, thank you and hello sentiments in bold letters and beautiful script) several years ago. That set, still very popular with card designers, is now complemented by More Wishes (a collection of Christmas, New Year and Love sentiments in the same, amazing style). Here’s a look at the More Wishes stamp set:
(2) Upcoming Set of Dies
The “MERRY” on my card is created with the Mini Alphabet Dies, new in Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2024 Mini Catalog. Demonstrators are able to pre-purchase these items, so be prepared for some amazing sneak peeks. The Mini Alphabet Dies These 3/4″ tall letters are perfect for cards and scrapbooks – and are wide enough to work with. There’s ANOTHER great thing about this set of alphabet dies – there are only three dies in the collection! Here’s a look at these dies:
(3) Embellishments Carried Forward into 2023 Annual Catalog
I festooned my card with four trios of Festive Pearls – two silver and two red. These tiny pearls add a lot of shine, but they are even more powerful when presented with friends. Here’s a closer look at one of the trios on my card:
And here’s a look at the Festive Pearls, which are featured in Stampin’ Up!’s 2023 Annual Catalog:
I didn’t realize I was playing with a retired pack of papers until my card was complete, but the Shining Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper was first offered as an Online Exclusives Designer Series Paper and is now sold out (and retired). I don’t often showcase retired products, but I, too, need occasional reminders that some of the products we love will go away when they are sold out. ♥
Stamps: More Wishes Papers: Shining Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper (retired), Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler, Basic White Inks: Cherry Cobbler Accessories: Mini Alphabet Dies, Festive Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals
