Merry Christmas with More Wishes and Mini Alphabet Dies

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:

More Wishes, Mini Alphabet Dies, Stampin Up!, Brian King

(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:

More Wishes, Stampin Up! 162324This stamp set is a carry-forward product, so we’ll see it in future publications, but now’s still a great time to pick it up. πŸ™‚

(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 Mini Alphabet Dies, Stampin Up! 162934 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:

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. ♥
